MATCH

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.

Online Dating Tips

Meeting potential candidates at a dating website is far more effective and convenient than scouring the bars and night clubs week after week. Meeting singles online has many benefits including the amount of singles to choose from, the ability to learn important details about a person before you even talk, and the opportunity to preserve your privacy. Your approach with dating websites will be far more effective if you follow these tips:

  • Profile. Writing a quality profile is an important element to attracting your next date. Does your profile tell a story, is it detailed but not too long? Are you positive in your approach or are you focusing on negatives of what you don't want? Keep in mind you need to sound open and not overly picky. Once you have written your profile, wait a day, and go back and review for accuracy.
  • Picture. While joining a dating site can be a little uncomfortable at first you will get used to the idea of others perusing your picture is this environment. If you fail to post a picture you will most likely meet very few singles. Make sure any picture you post of yourself is relatively accurate and up-to-date. Many online daters have been shocked to meet someone in person and find they look nothing like their pictures posted. Also avoid posting pictures of yourself with someone who looks to be an ex spouse. Even if it's a sister or brother, it will bring many questions and set some false expectations on who is the right physical match for you.
  • Response. If you receive communication from a quality individual don't hesitate to respond. Pretending to be too busy or too passe to respond timely doesn't send the right message. Most people that pay the cost to join a dating site are hoping to expedite the process of meeting people. If you wait too you may miss your chance to get to know a great person.
  • Privacy. Once you've met someone online it's important to not jump the gun and give out personal information. If someone has your last name, email address or phone number it takes only a few seconds to find out where you live and sometimes where you work. Utilizing the privacy established through the dating website is a smart idea until you've met someone special, in person, and have a stronger understanding of who they are and if you want to spend more time with them.

A well written, honest profile that is upbeat is a great way to capture the attention of potential candidates that would make a good fit. Sign on regularly to look for communication from potential dates but make sure you aren't too quick to share personal information with those you meet online.
