Match.com is well known for its matchmaking. Even without lengthy personality quizzes and compatibility tests, they have excellent scientific matching skills to help find you the right match. You will get Daily Matches, which are profiles suggested to you based on compatibility, which you need to rate for accuracy. The more you interact with your matches and rate them, the better the results will get.

You can also use the search tool to help find a great match. Once you find someone you like the look of, you can send winks and flirts, create a favourites list, or reach out with an inbox message. If they are currently online, you can also enjoy live chat.

If you aren’t being noticed by the right profiles, why not try Match Me? This places you in the Daily Matches of the singles you have your eye on. Now they have to pay you some attention!

Don’t forget to download the apps for Amazon, iOS and Android devices. These allow you to check messages and chat on the move, browse for singles who are near you right now, and never miss an interaction from a new potential date.

Sign Up:

It’s quite simple to sign up to match.com. First, enter your gender, email address, and the age range you’re looking for. Then you’ll see a view of your dashboard, and be prompted to sign up with a few more details, such as a username. You will be redirected to begin filling out your profile, and giving the site some more details about you which help with the matchmaking process. You can see your progress across the top of the screen, and the process is split into three sections.

The first one is About You. This is your chance to include some interesting information about your lifestyle, interests, and physical appearance. Religious and political opinions might be included as well. You’ll be prompted to include answers to questions like your favourite local hot spots or what books you’re reading right now. This is all to get a fuller understanding of what you’re all about.

Next, answer a lot of the same questions about your ideal date. What’s their physical appearance like, and what lifestyle options do they ideally have? Are they a smoker or a drinker, or are these deal-breakers for you? The Deal-breaker feature is a great way of keeping unwanted matches out your inbox.

After this section is complete, just describe yourself in your own words, add some photos from your PC or from Facebook, and include a bit about what you’re looking for. You’ll be redirected to your dashboard, where you can start browsing through singles. You can edit your profile at any time.

Safety:

Match.com care about your safety, and as a senior single, you want to make sure you know exactly how to date safety online. Firstly, you can check out the safety guidelines, which are available from every page of the site and explain how to chat and browse safely online, and make a safe meeting offline. You can also verify your account with your email address, as well as your Facebook account, which is helpful for being confident talking to new people and trusting their identity. Private Mode is an excellent safety tool, and lets you choose exactly who can see your profile and who can’t. This feature works from mobile, which is brilliant. If anyone is bothering you, you can block and report them to match.com who will take this seriously.

Prices:

Match.com has two options for full subscription. Basic plans and Bundle plans. The Basic plans are a few dollars cheaper but come without the VIP extras. Bundle plans include Profile Highlight, Email Read Notification and First Impressions. The Basic Plans are priced at $36.10 per month for 3 months, $28.08 for 6 months, and $22.73 for 12 months. You can choose 1 month for $53.39.

We like the 6 month subscription because it comes with the famous match.com Guarantee. This means that if you haven’t found a great match on the site in 6 months, you’ll get another six months totally free of charge! You can’t say fairer than that.

Ease of Use:

The site is simple to use, and doesn’t have too many complicated features. You can use the mobile apps on the move, which makes keeping up to date with interactions hassle-free. Everything is easy to find from the dashboard, but we also love the help centre, which has FAQs, a keyword search, and plenty of information on all the site tools. If you still have questions, click Contact Us, and reach out to helpful staff via contact form.

The Search:

There are a few ways to search on match.com. You can choose some great one click search options such as viewing your results by which members are closest to you, or online now. You can view singles by how many photos they have, how close they are to what you’re looking for, or even if they like you. This is called Reverse Match, and is a great way of seeing what kind of people you’re attracting, to help you hone your profile information. The Mutual Match section shows singles where you are both looking for the same things, and where Match feel there would be chemistry. You can also narrow it down by profile filters or even a keyword. Let’s say you’re looking to meet someone to share your retirement with and see new places. Search for retirement or travel and you’re bound to find some great profiles to browse.

The match.com Guarantee is a great sign of how confident they are that singles will find people to click with on the site.
