If there was such a thing as a titan of the online dating world, Match.com would certainly be at the top of the conversation. As one of the largest and most popular online dating sites, Match.com has had some seriously big shoes (or glass slippers, if you’re a romantic). But no pressure, right? Well, either way, we’re ready to find out by delving into the Match.com reviews.
In the following chapters, our team takes the proverbial lid off this dating site giant and breaks it down into a bunch of little pieces. Our goal with Match.com reviews is to try to give you the most honest and accurate picture of what to expect here. We assume you came here wondering if this site is worth your time, money, and effort, and we want to answer that question.
Match.com – The Bottom Line Up Front
Match.com has always been a strong player in the online dating market. That being said, some of the other options have done a lot to evolve, while Match seems to be similar to what it was a few years ago. Remember that our Match.com reviews are regularly updated and compared to past reviews to identify growth or changes.
So, is it worth it? If you’re not quite sure what you’re looking for (casual vs. serious), it’s definitely worth checking out. If you’re in that boat, we also recommend you check out Zoosk, linked below. This is a similar type of site that has a huge (much larger) user base and very affordable membership. If you’re looking for something more committed or serious, this might be a good option, or you might have better luck with a place like eHarmony (also linked below).
Who Match.com Is Good For
- Singles not sure if they want serious or casual dating
- People who want a more traditional “catalog” style of online dating
Who Match.com Might Not Be Best For
- People certain they want a serious relationship
- People who want only casual dating
- Singles looking for more robust matching help
- Singles who like to be able to learn a lot about matches before messaging
What is Match.com?
Match.com is an online dating app and website owned by the Match Group that was launched in 1995 and headquartered out of Dallas, Texas. The dating software is accessible from desktop or on a phone or tablet via Google Play or the iOS store. Match works by following a traditional “catalog-style” approach to dating where you create a profile and then are able to search through other potential match’s profiles if they meet the criteria you have selected.
Generally, Match is known most for helping singles who are looking for more serious and committed relationships. That being said, there are quite a few people who still use the app for casual dating, which might be a turn off for some people.
How Does Match.com Work?
Match is a hybrid dating website that offers both swipe-style dating (mutual matches) and traditional catalog/profile style dating. Users join the site and provide basic information and photos. From there, you have two main courses of action to meet other singles. One—you can go to the search area and look through a full list of people who meet your criteria. If you find someone that you fancy, you can send them a message.
Two—you can go to the Discover tab which is a swipe-style type of dating (similar to Tinder). If both you and another user express interest in each other, Match.com sends you a notification of the mutual match. The one main difference between this and Tinder, though, is that you can send a message to someone without a mutual match requirement.

Match.com Features Overview
We love great features and our Match.com reviews certainly had a good amount of stuff for us to look at. Below, we’re going to take a look at some of our favorites and the more notable features the site has to offer.
Upfront, though, how do the features overall compare with other dating sites? Pretty comparable, although we haven’t seen a lot of new features added recently. On one side you could say it’s the don’t fix what isn’t broken camp, but on the other side you could say it’s falling a bit behind the curve. Specifically, we’d like to see something like the eHarmony video feature added. Let’s look at the features that stood out during our Match.com reviews.

Same as all the rest reviews it’s a scam
Same as all the rest reviews it’s a scam. Save your money it’s all fake. Leave it to the Latvians and we’re idiots and sad sacks for wanting to believe this crap.
Bots bots bots bots!
Bots bots bots bots! There is no genuine user here! They keep saying they make sure the ‘community is clean’,when am pretty sure they either coded the bots or allowed them from porn websites. Pathetic app! Don’t even think of paying a subscription or installing the app unless you want to chat with bots leading others to porn websites and getting liked every 5 seconds
Keep clear of these nasty people.
This is a horrible site – please don’t waste your time with them. They take it upon themselves to adjust whatever photo you have posted and edit/change it to show only your face – I mean a very, very, very zoomed in shot of your face. I was horrified when I checked my profile and all I saw was my face, every line, wrinkle and scar – none of the background images of boats or gardens or nature – just a big FACE. How embarrassing. As I said, keep clear of these nasty people.
This site really was a huge waste of money.
This site really was a huge waste of money. Despite setting up my profile as wanting only local, I only received potential matches from people far away. I constantly was getting a notice to beware they were investigating someone who contacted me as suspicious. It seemed most people on the site were not actually real. The few people I interacted with had the same experience. This site was a HUGE waste of my money and time. Do not waste your time!
It’s a rubbish site
Just found this company is taking another 3 months subscription fee although I’ve cancelled.. it’s a rubbish site please don’t use ive now got headaches of trying to get my money back
Never come here.
These guys do not protect your privacy and they don’t refund money. Worst experience ever. Total rip. Never come here.
It's full of scam
It’s full of scam accounts who’s write to you some naughty stuff than after a little bit of chatting they are try to lure you to a different site and register there so the two of you can continue chatting… And I am pretty sure that is a scam site and will empty your bank account.
So many fakes
So many fakes, scammers and catfish on this site! Not to mention this site want you to pay for a membership so in their wisdom they heavily restrict what you can use for free. Not sure how that inspires me to want to buy a membership!
Awful app. Horrible experience. After using the app for two days (and not sending any messages or even matching with anyone) I received a message to say I was permanently blocked due to my ‘behaviour’. I cannot possibly imagine how I could have violated guidelines without actually communicating with anyone. I’m a respectable 45 year-old woman, so perhaps this site thinks I’m expendable. However, I found the whole experience rude and upsetting. It’s shocking that they claim to be founded on principles of ‘respect’ when they can treat people so badly.
So disappointed and think this is a fix. I joined this site about 1 month ago – did not subscribe, got lots of emails telling me how lucky I was and what a huge amount of interest I had! Guys were viewing my profile, every day for 3 weeks it told me I had at least 8 visitors. So I spent just over £32 for a months subscription. Four days, not one view on my profile!! Very disappointed! I wish I’d read the reviews here and saved myself some dosh. Thanks for nothing!!!
I do appreciate
I met a few people but I guess I am not everybody’s cup of tea. But I do appreciate your help. I met somebody really nice thanks to your site.
Fairly easy to navigate
Fairly easy to navigate and reasonably priced and great choice of potential male partners, found most of them quite nice but do be careful as some are quite out there and only looking for a quick screw!
This is a really bad dating site.
This is a really bad dating site.
Terrible, in all that matters, go free sites, much better.
This site is bad for anyone. Be careful!
Search results are poor
Search results are poor to say the least. 90% or better of the attention i get is either from scammers or women well outside my search area even when it is clearly stated in my profile that I am only interested in people closer to me. To be fair I have spoken to a couple of nice girls, but at close to $40/month the value just isn’t there. Cannot recommend in any way shape or form.
My experience is that this site was good for finding suitable matches. I do like their interface. would totally recommend the site to everyone, its so easy to use and they give you great matches!
I found someone
One of my friends referred me to this website. Wont say I found someone right away. But it took me a few days to find the right girl for myself. I am sure we will have some good time together.
Leading dating site
I can definitely only give my unconditional best recommendations to this site, it is a very serious site, professional user interface, can well understand it is the leading dating site. I’ve already been on the first dates for a short time… one of which seems to lead to something concrete 🙂
Love to visit this site
This is one of the best good Dating Site ever I have found ,Consistently I love to visit to this site and makes me so much happier to be in the site and chat with friend and finding new friends always make me so much happy and love to visit this site ..
This one is really amazing
Ive decided to write a reply as Ive been searching for a good dating site for a while. It had to be safe, and that is why I couldnt find for so long. But finally, I did. This one is really amazing. Ive found here my girlfriend! But there were plenty of wonderful women. I guess its a nice plus of sites with paid membership.
Thumps up from me
I really need to say that this has been a really good experience. Thumps up from me i would warmly recommend to anyone!
Lady's are really ready for a relationship
Sometimes I wonder if some of these lady’s are really ready for a relationship. Also a lot of these lady’s just don’t want to chat and at times when I leave a messages they don’t respond they just go back to just winks.
Thank you so much
Thank you so much for creating and maintaining this site. I just finished an amazing five month relationship with a woman I met here and have a deep ongoing friendship with another. Being on here has also lead to some wonderful times with girls who already knew me before seeing me here.
All are fake
You better off meeting a human at a zoo than meeting anyone on here lol. All are fake. Also they will delete your profile for being realistic lol. They also sell your information to outsiders. Try it and guess what you will be dispointed good luck
Men stay away from this site.
Men stay away from this site.
Do not waste your money
They do not respect your parameters of what you put in regards to distance or children or education. In fact most of the people I have received have been outside of my parameters. I have contacted customer service several times with no luck of getting them to fix the problem even though they claim they have. I have also been notified three separate occasions a people I was talking to have been removed from the site due to threatening behavior. They refuse to acknowledge the problem with their website, and continue to send me people with no pictures and no profiles which tells me they signed on but never paid for a subscription, because they never answer if you write to them. Do not waste your money
Dont bother use free site instead
i cancelled but they have taken another 160 quid out my bank, they refuse to repay me back, RIP OFF , Horrible people, no interest in helping people, just after your money , dont bother use free site instead
A lot of fake accounts
A lot of fake accounts just by girls
Terrible rip off site
Terrible rip off site. Full of fake profiles and useless layout of app
Worst experience ever!
Worst experience ever! I would get notifications,but when I would reply back no response. This happened multiple times. Biggest waste of time and money.
Match.com has Worst customer services
Worst customer services, ever. Took two emails, a call to texas to get 800 for customer service. Then an argumentative jerk… What happen to customers being right and making them happy..
The site is great
This is the best way to find a partner when you are divorced man who is travelling a lot like me. The site is great, simple and girls are smart, beautiful and very friendly. I have only good things to say about everything. If you ask me should you try I’ll say yes, go for it.
