Match.com is touted as one of the biggest online dating websites in existence. Since they arrived on the scene in the mid 1990s, Match has been piling up members by the millions. A big part of the reason for Match’s success seems to be that they are willing to give members what they want – great customer service, a friendly environment to meet, mix and match, and an easy to use interface that allows even novice PC users to instantly operate the site like a pro.
With Match, you can choose to use their personality matching software or you can choose to go at it alone, searching members by your own criteria and contacting whomever you wish. The signup process is also streamlined compared to a lot of other big-name dating websites.
It’s fairly easy to sign up with and create a profile for Match.com. Users can attach up to 26 pictures in a photo album, giving Match some social networking features as well, and you can choose to be exclusive or all-inclusive when it comes to filling out your status sheet. The site is fully secure and it isn’t plagued with quite as many dead profiles as others.
