My Match.com Experience
I'm always on the lookout for new ways to meet single people. I've gone to a number of speed dating events and tried the bar scene. I've also let friends and family play matchmaker. And last but not least, I've tried a couple free dating sites, which did not yield any results for me. I thought the reason for this could be because of the sites I was using, so I recently got myself a Match.com free trial and decided to try out this famous dating site to see what all the hype was about.
Right off the bat, I got a pretty good impression of the site. Not only is it pleasant to look at, it's easy to navigate and simple to use. Setting up your own profile is obviously the first step. I've heard many times that you should post multiple photos, so I ended up posting four. As for the content of the profile, I pretty much just copied what I had used on the free dating sites previously. Once all of that was set up, I was ready to begin searching for my ideal match.
Not to sound like a snob, but I found the members on Match.com to be more appealing. They came off as more successful, more accomplished people compared to the people I saw on free dating sites. When you think about it, this does make a certain amount of sense, since we're dealing with a pool of online daters who can afford to pay a monthly membership.
As for the response rate of people you contact, I did get more responses from members on Match.com. But the same problem that exists for free dating site still exists for Match.com, which is that you have to contact lots of people and be quite persistent to get results. Overall, however, I liked the site and plan to get a full membership when my trial expires. If you want to try Match.com yourself, head over to Datingcoupons.net.
Although Match.com works well for me, your experience may differ. For this reason, it may be a good idea to get free trials at a few different dating sites. Some popular dating sites to consider trying out include Zoosk, Eharmony, Chemistry.com, and Christian Mingle.
