Match.com Review

Match.com is one of the many premier dating sites now available on the net; in fact, many couples who meet on the website often go on to get married. By viewing the television commercials alone, you’d think that most everyone finds their true love at Match.com.

The website launched in 1995 and has grown to service more than 24 countries, including hosting websites in 15 languages. In order for the site to be productive, they provide users with tons of features to get them started in finding a compatible match. Members can sift through tons of photos and send emails to other members that they would like to communicate with.

Current Match.com Promotions

Generally speaking, promotions at Match.com cannot be combined.  In other words, you can’t get a 7-day free trial, and then 20% off if you decide you want to buy a membership.  You get one or the other.

Features that Set Match.com Apart

What really sets Match.com apart from other dating sites is its features; some of which include: MatchWords, MatchMaker and MindFindBind. With MatchWords, members can search for other users by typing in special words, and the site will match them with a person with similar keywords. MatchMaker is a personalized feature that costs a little extra, but it’s designed for people who don’t have time to search hundreds of photos.

MindFindBind is a feature that uses assistance from Dr. Phil to help new users learn and understand the online dating system. It walks them through the website and teaches them how to get ready for dating. It teaches them how to find the right person and how to bond with them to secure the relationship.

Membership Costs

To enjoy the benefits of Match.com and to use the system fully, you’ll have to sign-up for a $30 monthly fee. However, if you want more features like MindFindBlind, then you’ll have to pay an extra $8 a month. The fee is automatically withdrawn from your credit card every month, so you’ll have to read the fine print and terminate it completely if you don’t want to be billed when you don’t use the site.
