Good and bad

I joined with a six month membership and still hope Match delivers but it's not a totally happy experience so far in terms of the app itself (the website has its own drawbacks too). On the good side there do seem to be a reasonable number of active members on Match which creates at least the possibility of meeting someone. On the bad side the UI is awful and very annoying to navigate, and the search facility extremely clunky. It's impossible to remove likes you are not interested in or unlike to correct fat finger mistakes you make. This is especially annoying when your likes start filling up with unavailable profiles or profiles without photos. A very serious defect is that edits you make to your profile are not automatically updated in the app unless you log out and log in again or delete the app and reinstall.
The impression I have is that Match trades on its reputation as the biggest global dating site but there has not been a corresponding investment in the algorithm or the interface. So far slightly disappointed.

Outdated interface, few people of interest

Paid for a six month subscription at the turn of the year just before “the busiest Sunday if the yer”. Turned out to be very few people of interest on the site. Put a very minimal search criteria and reached the bottom within an hour.
Can’t ignore people that you’ve already viewed without blocking them which actually appears to them. Too over the top. This means that you will click on the same people not remembering you’ve clicked on them before and with people getting notifications that someone has viewed your profile makes numerous people look like lurkers which gives a sense of unease when you’re not sure if you’ve clicked before.
Based on the people that have viewed my profile it averages around my age when it’s a common trend that girls on average like older guys and vice versa. This indicates that there is something wrong with either the suggestion mechanism or the default search settings. Get people viewing my profile that are tens or even hundreds of miles away.

Close on useless. Tempted to bin the app despite having 5 1/2 months to run on it. The free apps have more interesting people on them and better basic functionality.

Hi garyjeff, thanks for your feedback. Please note that as standard we do not block contact between members, and therefore all members can message as they wish. If you are receiving messages from profiles outside of your search criteria - whether it's location, age, what they're looking for etc. - they may still get in contact if you appear in their searches as you fit what they are searching for.
I hope this helps!

Garbage. Waste of money.

I’m four months into a six month subscription and it really has been a monumental waste of money. I doubt many of the female profiles are genuine. I’ve been on two dates in the whole time I’ve been on here, despite sending initial messages to a few (but not an excessive amount). Most accounts just can’t be bothered to respond, no matter how much effort you put into your first message. The two dates I managed to go on, well, one turned out to be a homeless woman looking for somewhere to stay (I kid you not. She tried to tempt me into inviting her by suggesting she was into all kinds of weird stuff in the bedroom) and the other couldn’t have been less enthusiastic about going on a date if she had been forced into it. I know I’m no oil painting and not much of a catch, but seriously. I’ve been more successful on the free apps!

Waste of money. I’ve stopped the recurring payment and now I’m just waiting for the subscription to run out so I can delete the app and its 500-odd notifications that it has invented out of nowhere.

If you’re a man, older than 30, I wouldn’t even bother. It’s soul-destroying and a money pit of disappointment. The few genuine women on here don’t even bother to respond.

Hi Sacredjon, thank you for your feedback. We know it's disheartening when you're not receiving replies, but we do have some tips which may help. First, make sure your profile is complete with clear and varied photos. You're also more likely to hit it off with singles who share the same interests with you - you can filter according to various hobbies or lifestyle choices in 'Search'. For more personalised suggestions, please email us at and you won't wait long for a reply. The Match team
