Match.com is the biggest, and most prolific dating site. For more than 20 years, they’ve been matching members of all ages, and really set the standard for dating sites that followed. And they are still a first-rate dating service, with tons of members, ease of use, and modern trappings (like an app).
The sheer number of members makes Match.com very attractive. If you want the most choice, Match is the leader. They are also easy to use, and keep it simple - very straightforward profiles, parameters, what you are looking for in a partner, etc. Essentially, it’s akin to “get the big questions out of the way - smoking, religion, kids, etc. – and let chemistry find itself”. I like that approach a lot.

The app could be better. Most users agree, if you go by reviews on the app stores. But using it on your computer? No worries.
You can join and browse for free, but like all other dating sites, interaction requires payment. Cost is 3 months for $17.24 per month, 6 months for $14.99 per month, and 12 months for $12.37 per month. They also have a guarantee for the six month.

I was impressed from signup to browsing. The app could be better, but otherwise, Match.com is the biggest player in the online dating game, and it shows. Good value, easy to use, and tons of users – what’s not to like?
