match.com is for serious people looking to find love. Yes, it’s fun to look at all of the pretty people, but with match.com’s large database and myriad of tools, this app sets out to solve your “single problem.”
This Appy award-winning app seems best for people between 29 and 45 who are looking for something a little more serious. Since you have to pay to join, you know that the members are all people who have decided to take an active approach to finding someone.
match.com sends you Daily Matches, so if you’re off the app for a few days, you’ll have some potential daters waiting for you when you log back in.
match.com also shows you people who are “interested” in you. These are people who clicked the “Yes” checkmark in their Daily Matches.
A “Mixer” option similar to Tinder allows you to view multiple people quickly and choose them by swiping left or right.
Once you sign up, match.com guides you through the simple profile creation process. You can add your photo from your gallery or take a new one, but unfortunately there are no Facebook or Instagram options as of this writing. After your photo is up, you’re redirected to the site’s search feature so you can immediately start looking at other daters in your area. You can also return to your profile with an easily navigable menu and start filling in more information about yourself or what you’re looking for.
Intuitive search function with easy-to-use filters allows you to hone in on exactly what you are looking for.
“Events” lets you see any event happening in your area.
You can also join virtual events such as webinars, bar crawls, speed dating and more.
There are chat messaging options, ways to see who has viewed you, and a simple daily to-do list to help you meet more matches.
Boost your profile with “Top Spot,” a feature that puts you at the top of all searches for 60 minutes. A 10-pack is $20, a 5-pack is $12 and a single Top Spot is $2.99.
The “Sort” function allows you to choose how you want your matches to be displayed.

match.com has far fewer in-app purchases than other dating apps, so you can expect to enjoy the site’s complete wealth of features when you pay the basic membership price.
If you need help, there is a search feature that can help you troubleshoot common issues. There is also a “Most Popular Answers” field and a “Featured Support Categories” field to help you find your answer. If that doesn’t work, you can send an email to customer support.
match.com leads the way for relationship-minded singles to find others who share the same desire. The app is well built, and you can tell that a lot of time and effort went into designing it. The absence of a free tier may dissuade some people, but as with everything, you get what you pay for.
match.com was founded in 1993 and is currently the #1 dating site and app. More than 4 million people use match every month, making it one of the largest dating sites in the world.
