    Match.com is the "lesser of the evils." I HATE eHarmony (very few potential candidates and so many that are not fully registered, just see "profile image"). OurTime is awful - they "claim" they have a higher caliber of men but they are the bottom of the ocean and they are terrible about meeting my "filter criteria." Bumble is TERRIBLE at meeting my "search criteria" and even as a paying customer there are very few ways to actually connect, plus it's too limited in the ability to "write about yourself." Match has the most flexibility to write about yourself, the most pics to upload, more extensive "search criteria" BUT the men they "recommend" all too often are NOWHERE NEAR meeting my search criteria. It has one of the better ways to communicate with matches

    I wish they would allow a box to check regarding my preference for men without beards! Most of the men Match suggest for me (about 60% have beards)! Other than that I appreciate that members can share a lot about themselves and what matters most to them in their bios. I don't expect for all the pictures to be current, and it is helpful to see how their lives may have changed over time, however, it is helpful to have at least one current photo within the last year.

      Match.com is one of the better sites because they allow you to select who you want to meet. NEVER use a service like eHarmony where THEY select your matches and do it quite poorly despite their ads claiming how great they are. All sites have inactive members who will never respond to you but Match gave me a better response rate than some other sites. It costs more than some other sites for full features, but you get what you pay for. During COVID-19 dating sites have lost their luster but when things return to normal it should be good again.

      I would definitely recommend Match.com. I always felt say compared to other dating sites. My matches were set to my preferences which was easy to navigate and overall it was a comfortable site to use and in late March 2017 I met who would end up becoming my husband. Our 3rd wedding anniversary is late this year. He is a very smart, caring and intelligent man. Good to my son from previous relationship and we now have a beautiful 16 month old daughter. I thank God and Match.com for the perfect connection.

      This is the only dating service I've used, so I have no basis for comparison regarding the cost, safety, matching process, etc. I signed up about 15 years ago when Match was generally brand new and the only game in town. The onboarding process was tedious but thorough and the match results were hyper-localized, which I liked a lot. Contacting the dates was easy. It had a tiered pricing system. It encouraged pictures.

      I had issues with males soliciting for sex and Match did not even respond. The people I were matched to were NOTHING like my preferences. Match is no different than guys hiding behind profiles in order to lure you to their place to have sex, once! Then ignore you and tell the women after you that you are a stalker, as they will be labeled when their one night of sex is over. Don’t pay to be on this site, ever.

      I've been a paid member of Match on and off for the better part of 6 years. All has been good until recently, the past year or so. I am a gay woman that obviously seeks gay women and this is listed in the preferences on my profile. For the past year, and only in the past year, I have been receiving daily messages from men. Every single day. Every single week. For the past year. This is far beyond the occasional "guy who pretends to be a woman seeking women" profile - with the amount of men that I've received messages from despite my profile falling under the 'women seeking women' category tells me that Match.com is now displaying my profile in the "Top Picks" for men, despite the fact that my profile is not supposed to be shown to men. In other words - Match.com is now drawing from gay women's profiles just to keep their (paying) men customers.

      As someone who is being charged ~$50/month, this is completely unacceptable. There is no way these men would even have a chance to view my profile if it were not for Match shoving my profile in their faces. No doubt they're doing this to other gay women as well. Cancelling my membership and Match has forever lost a customer.

      If you don't need to interact with anyone at Match, you probably won't have any problem. But if something goes wrong, their customer service staff appear to have been trained to keep promising they will fix things, but never do. In my case, my email changed and they make it IMPOSSIBLE for you to change it and refuse to do it themselves. After 6 phone calls to them over three weeks, they apparently have now disabled incoming phone calls from my number. It is pretty incredible!

      I signed up for a 3 month premium subscription then add stipulated unlimited msgs /who received and read your msgs/ unlimited likes etc etc.. Within minutes the site started sending me notices about limits and how I could pay for them. Keep in mind I'm already a premium user in one instance. I sent a msg to a lady and the Match.com send me a notice saying that if I wanted to get a reply from this lady I could pay for it myself. In other words my limitless msgs did not include other members to be allowed to reply to your msgs unless I believe they're members themselves.. Within hours of being on the site I realized that it was robbery with so many hidden costs.. I immediately cancel my subscription only to later noticed that match.com had charged me for the 3 whole months regardless if I only used it for a few hours..

      I called match.com to see about getting a refund and they basically kept trying to convince me to stay on the site. Ii declined but they still charged me full price for 1 month.. I thought it was gonna be great since they were charging a good amount of money but I was wrong.. Save your money go to a free date site instead.. At least there won't be any hidden costs.

      Match makes it impossible to delete the account. I asked them to delete it and then 6 months later, they started sending me Match collections of potential women suitors all over again. This is highly irksome.
