Match

MATCH Visit Site

Cost:

$16.99 / month (6 month subscription)

Members:

15+ million

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award As the largest online dating site in existence (15+ million active members, and over 50,000 new ones added every day), and a slick, easy-to-use interface, Match has everything we could ask for in a dating service - including a 10-day free trial period.

If you are new to Match, you can search their members for free. Simply select some basic search criteria (gender, age, location), select a username and password, and you can see who's available. If you want to do more, Match has a tiered membership. For a small subscription fee (starting at $16.99/month for 6 months) you add features such as sending and receiving emails, see who has viewed your profile, and block members from viewing you.

Setting up a profile is an easy process. You list pertinent information about yourself; age, height, marital status, body type, smoker, drinker, occupation, income, pets, and kids. Then you list your ideal wishes for a mate using the same criteria. Finally, you write a description about yourself for potential matches to read. Upload your picture (highly recommended) and you are on your way to finding a match.

The search functions are unlimited. The most utilized is the age, gender, and zip code search - but Match also offers searches by "MatchWords", profile types, reverse matches (people who are looking for profiles like yours), mutual matches, and much more. The advice center also offers ways to create a more efficient search. Match has thought of everything.

With the account settings, you're in total control of your profile. This allows you to block members, sign up for alerts (by email or pager), and a myriad of other options. The FAQ section is very insightful and answered all of our questions. Match even offers international searches; mobile match (which allows you to match via your cell phone), and online dating safety advice.

Match also offers an unprecedented 6-month guarantee. If you sign up for a 6-month subscription, and haven't found your true love at the end of that time, they'll give you another 6 months absolutely free. This offer is unmatched by any of their competition.

With the huge membership base, ease of use, and low price, Match earns our highest rating.

Matchmaker

MATCHMAKER Visit Site

Cost:

$16.65 / month (6 month subscription)

Members:

2 million

Like much of the competition, Matchmaker has a searchable database of millions of members. All you need to do is fill out a profile (which asks you to identify if you are looking for marriage, serious, casual or friendship), upload your picture and compose a little blurb about yourself that others will find intriguing. You are then a member able to search the database of over 2 million people for free.

To communicate with other members of Matchmaker you need to upgrade your free membership. By upgrading you will be able to search with advance features such as age, location, keywords, and over 100 other personal preferences. You will also be able to message with other members thru Instant Messaging, email or live chat 24 hours a day. Matchmaker also offers a Webzine and weekly newsletter that offers dating advice and other how-to's related to dating.

Customer service is available by email or mail only. The FAQ page is lacking information and could use some expansion. The service has special links for alternative lifestyles.

Although Matchmaker could benefit from a larger membership base, this capable service hits the mark with the generation "Y" target market.
