Match.com is an ancient dating site compared to the age of most dating sites out there, with a birth date in 1995. For this reason, Match.com was one of the first horses out of the gate to experience the enormous financial gains that online dating sites can experience. With their advertising budget cushioned with wads of cash, Match.com quickly became known by most dating singles, and became the most popular and well known place to go when seeking online dating services.
Match.com is an active online dating site across six continents and is available in 18 different languages. It does offer some unique features including their own online dating magazine, and matchMobile that lets you search for matches, get alerts and send messages with your mobile. One of the best features of match.com is the ability to let you see when a member was last logged in. This helps to weed out the inactive people still registered with the service. Another great feature is being able to narrow down your search for other daters within a mile of your own location.
One of the major drawbacks of Match.com is that it doesn’t let non-members reply to a members email for free. There is a large number of people registered with Match.com who don't, or can't, commit to the paid membership. For this reason, members are increasingly frustrated that their messages to non-members cannot be returned, even though they are paying for the higher than average price for Match.com's services.
For a basic membership with Match.com you have a selection of choices, 6 months for $14.99/month, 3 months for $16.99/month and 1 month for $29.99. A premium membership with Match.com, or Match.com Plus, gives you access to advanced features of video advice modules, dating insights and strategies, Dr. Phil workshops, action plans to help you see success and a private online journal. The Match.com Plus membership will cost you $21.98/month for 6 months, $24.98/month for 3 months and 38.98 for one month.
