Match.com

match.com (UK) - Review

match.com (UK) is the UK's best known dating site and after 10 years in online dating is responsible for hundreds of thousands of relationships.

They became part of the meetic.com dating network in 2009 and later joined forces with DatingDirect.com to provide one of the largest databases of online singles in the UK. The sites popularity is reflected by their low 'UK Traffic Rank' score which indicates a high number of active members on their site. They are currently the most popular dating site on our comparison list.

match.com's website is very user friendly allowing you to create your profile in just a few minutes, add photos and search for other members for free. Their advanced search facility has many search options and lets you filter your results by age, photo, physical characteristics, last active and much more.

Paid membership enables you to communicate with other members by email and instant messaging and starts from just £9.99 a month. Membership prices are the same as DatingDirect.com so it doesn't matter which site you join. You can also access their site from your smart phone with their free dating app.

match.com also invite members to their match.com nights, where you can meet other single people at your local pub or cocktail bar. These events are free for match subscribers and their single friends. Check your email regularly for an invite.
