Poor value and membership options.
17 October 2015
Reviewer: Bridgette Jones from UK

As a reasonably attractive female with realistic expectations I thought paying to join a dating site would mean I met more genuine and thoughtful men. This, along with most dating sites is no more than an ego trip for middle aged deluded men. There's the ego trips with holiday snaps, looking to meet much younger women with the only priority is how slim they are. And there's the podgy and pasty ones, also looking to meet a model. You cannot control who views you, so lonely men sat behind a screen with no photos tend to view and wink at you in the middle of the night. Also there appears to be a lot of men 'just looking for now' so you are paying and they are not fee paying members. To be able to have any control over who can con contact you have to pay extra. My main issue is you don't get much idea of what men are looking for until you buy membership, so you find yourself wasting time view profiles.

In summary, I would not recommend Match.com UK to a friend.

Worst SIte Ever - Avoid It Like The Plague

Reviewer: A Disgusted Ex Member from London UK

I saw some reviews and marketing so expected good things from this dating site. Unlike many, you cannot try it before you buy. I should have guessed why not, but only discovered the reasons once I had paid my subscription. On entering the site, I immediately saw l had been scammed by clever advertising hype. There are differences between marketing and reality but the huge disparity I found there was incredible.

I do not consider this a good dating site. I've used many paid and free dating sites. This is the worst I have ever seen. My experiences there were not positive at all. I include here some examples of things that I discovered on match.com UK.

Overall the site quality was poor. It looked dated, almost unfinished, more like a demo than a working system. The site layout was dreadful and showed distinct lack of proper design. The navigation options I found were quite limited. It frequently hung and ran slowly in most browsers on several different machines and operating systems.

Its search options were deliberately restricted; one has to pay extra for options other dating sites provide as standard. That alone makes it is more expensive. The graphics were very low... (Read the full review)

Problems problems problems

There was a time when Match was excellent. This has been my second subscription.

But this time the site and customer service is continually dreadful.

Firstly, members may not always be getting the full range of people that are suitable. I've been experiencing a serious bug in the search facility which would show up only half the number of people that I can now see (because I've found a ridiculous work-around).

When I did a search and then increased the age range, the number of searches actually DECREASED...! And then when I took off the "with photo" filter the number halved - which can't be right, it should stay the same or go up.

One of the Match team did a test and experienced the same problems. Indeed at one point it told him he had 900 matches, oops and then it decide there were none... Despite this, Match are claiming there is no problem to be fixed.

Then Match has been deleting messages without any interaction from me. I get a notification, I see the message headline - but then some of those messages have simply disappeared, (but the member is still viewable so they've not left the... (Read the full review)

Wait until you need to leave...

Reviewer: Moomoo from Norfolk, UK

I have recently met someone (not on match.com but through a friend), so thought it best to leave match.com. I rang them up to cancel my automatic subscription but because one payment of £25 has gone form my account I am still liable to pay another £50 for another 6 month subscription which I do not want or need. When I asked whether cancelling my card would mean my credit report would be penalised, they said this would affect my credit rating. Completely out of order.

Plus, when I was actively using the site, I rarely received responses to my messages, and didn't receive many messages from men. Complete waste of time and money.

In summary, I would not recommend Match.com UK to a friend.
