Match Review Our Match UK Review
Matchis the UK’s biggest and most popular online dating websites, with around 6.5 million members, and 60,000 new members joining every month.They have a very extensive search facility that allows you to find potential partners based on lots of different criteria including the area, age range, nationality, ethnicity, drinking/smoking, family situation, body type/appearance, lifestyle and much more.

You can register with Match for free, setup a basic profile, use basic search features and view other people’s profiles (including their photos). You can also send winks and add people to your favourites, but you can’t communicate with members or see who has viewed your profile.

Read our quick Match Review below to find out whether or not it is the right online dating site for you.

Match Facts and Features at a Glance

If you have a smartphone you can also access your Match membership via your phone as well as on your computer. A great way to pass your time while sitting on the bus travelling to work in the morning :-)

PAYMENT OPTIONS – Match accept credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Maestro, Diners Card) and PayPal. You can pay online or call an ad advisor if you prefer.

FREE FEATURES: Basic search facility, ability to add your profile, add members to your favourites, wink at other members, view peoples’ profiles and photo. You will be able to use most of the site, but you won’t be able to contact people. The free features are really just designed to help you decide whether or not you want to be a full member of Match.

PROFILE FEATURES: You can add general information, Photo Albums, Appearance, Lifestyle, Interests and your ideal date. As soon as you sign up with Match you are presented with some basic multiple choice questions about your appearance, the type of relationship you are looking for, your personality type, religion, politcal views, education level and more.

This will probably take you around 10 minutes or so to complete, but it is worth filling this in straight away as you are more likely to get interest in your profile from other members. At the end you’ll be asked for a “dating headline”. It is good to think of something attention grabbing here as this is the first thing that people will see when they are searching through profiles. You’ll also be able to add a photo, so be sure to add a recent, clear photo of yourself. You will find that you do not get many people contacting you if you don’t bother with a photo. Don’t worry if you don’t fill in every single part of your profile at this stage – you can always do this later on.

FUN FEATURES: As you view profiles you can add people to your favourites to help you keep track of who you like.  You can also wink at people to let them know you are interested. If you are looking for an instant response you can search for people who are currently online. The last time I logged into Match (on a weekday morning) there were over 28,000 people online, so it is a pretty busy site!

SEARCH FEATURES: The basic search feature in Match allows you to search based on an age range (using a slider), a postcode and allows you to choose only people with photos or only people that are online at that moment. If you want to add more criteria to your search, the advanced search allows you to add additional criteria such as physical preferences, personality traits and more. They also have a feature called “Daily 6″. Match will identify 6 people each day who match your profile and you can selct the ones that you are interested in. The more you do this, the more Match will learn what you will like and the more relevant your matches will be!

SAFETY: You have the ability to blacklist troublesome members. Profiles are also reviewed manually rather than automatically reducing the chances of coming across those dodgy profiles. There is also a confidence charter and a full staff manning the site.

Our Verdict of Match:

5 out of 5 Heart Rating

Match is the UK’s largest online dating website so if you want choice, this is the best site for you. They also have a guarantee called the “Make Love Happen Guarantee”. If you don’t find love in 6 months, they will provide you with another 6 months free of charge. So if it takes you a bit longer than you expected to find that special someone, at least you’ll have a few free months of online dating! To qualify for this offer you must sign up for the 6 month membership, add a profile and photo and initiate a communication with at leat 5 members per month.

Signing up with Match is pretty quick – you need to register and confirm your email address then answer a few questions, which takes around 10 minutes or so. The site is a good choice for anyone who is new to dating online as it is easy to use and you’ll find a LOT of people on the site. If you live in a rural area of the UK with a relatively low population you may want to make Match your first stop as you will probably find that it provides you with a wider choice of potential dates in your local area than any other online dating site.

The best site for choice

May 28, 2012 by Jessica Brown

I like Match mainly because of the massive number of members. As I live in a rural area of England many of the other dating sites have been terrible and shown me only a few people. Like Match a lot, but could be better if it was a little cheaper.

I used for a little bit more than a year and after a few dates with the wrong people I finally met someone who was right for me. We've been going stong now for just over two years.
