Will not let users delete their profiles
I am very disappointed that, unlike most other apps (e.g. Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid), Match does not allow you to delete your profile. You can cancel your subscription, or make your profile invisible, but you cannot delete it. This means that, (a) they’re keeping your data forever, and (b) they are creating incentives for you to return to the app. Dating apps make money by keeping people on the apps as long as possible - in this case, by luring people back to the app, because if you find love through their platform and delete your account, that’s the point where they stop profiting from you. Although the practice of not allowing users to delete their profile is not illegal as far as I can tell, it is essentially kidnapping of your data and your online identity. Even the much more casual apps like Tinder do not do what Match does. This hijacking mentality of Match disgusts me.
UPDATE: Bumping from 1 to 3 stars as after contacting customer service, someone was able to delete my profile by hand. However, the process is still manual and in my case took approximately a week. It would be nice if this could be automated and users given the ability to do so themselves.

Been around... worth it.
I had been married for 10 years and felt confused about how to find a solid guy. My friends said try online dating so I did. Over the years I have tried several sites... Hinge, Tinder, Jdate, elite singles, zoosk, OKC, Bumble... in that time- 5 years - I went on a handful of dates but never really met anyone that stood out. Out of all of my time on those sites in the end I dated one person exclusively for a few months and wound up with some “texting buddies”- some of whom I have kept in touch with periodically, but never anything more than that. That is until Match. The truth is I had given up. I thought all the good guys were taken. I spent 2 months and 3 weeks on Match and although had a lot of interest- A LOT of interest - hadn’t really felt a connection with anyone. That is until my last week. Just when I was about to give up- I met the greatest most loving beautiful man. Now my life has been turned upside down in ways I couldn’t have imagined. What I would say is, don’t give up, and be willing to play with the geography. In the end when I opened up the miles to allow for more matches it made an enormous difference! Also I like match because you can be very particular about what you want and don’t on the front end. Also there’s no question people are more looking for serious relationships not just to hook up.
Good luck and don’t give up! Match works. If you want a serious relationship it works. That’s the bottom line.
Mac in customer service is awesome!!
I just recently became a paying member about a month ago. I wasn’t finding very many matches, mostly due to the area I live in being smaller. I wasn’t getting very many responses despite me being very intentional about reaching out to what little potential matches I would find or receive. As a paying member I was offered free dating coaching. I decided to try it out. It was a Friday night and I had no other plans. LOL! Anyway, Mac answers the phone with a very friendly and encouraging tone, and we start chatting. We looked at my profile together, discussed what was great and what could be better, and discussed how I was reaching out to potential matches, and if I was saying the right things (I was 😉). We discussed demographics and other ways to increase traffic and responses. We also talked about the fact that there are a lot of people on the site that are not paying members. They can still read your messages, but they cannot respond. There is a service that they offer, for a monthly fee, where your matches can respond to your messages! We discussed this in detail as well. The phone session was very pleasant and I learned a lot. I was starting to get a bit discouraged, but Mac was great at encouraging and helping me out. Thanks again Mac!
