The Premium Dating Site - Match.com Review
Star Ratings of Match:
Chance of getting a date
Value for money
Match.com is a premium dating site that founded early(1995) in the online dating field. It has built their world brand and accumulated a really huge number of users through all these years. Thought it is not a dating site that claims for seniors only, but its high amount of registered user based makes it also a great choice for seniors dating.

The number of monthly visitors of Match.com goes high up to 26.2 million and there are about 4.29 million unique visitors per month. You can see that it is a really popular world wide dating site based on these traffic data. And this is something that no other dating sites can compare. With so many engaged members on site, there is great chance that one can find the possible matches in a much more easier way. You don’t have to worry as a senior dater since they also have featured landing page for singles over the age of 50.
The registration process takes a littler longer but it is convenient to fill out and really helpful in their match system. It won’t be that annoying if you are a serious dater cause all the matches recommend later by their site are all based on the information you have filled out during registration. The fonts on the site are a litter smaller than those are on SeniorMatch.com but it is clear and easy to navigate through. You can always find out what you need to check in your account without a problem.
"Search" function is considered to be one of the most important part on a dating site. And this powerful search feature on Match.com really impressed us during our test. It has been subdivided for many different criteria including age, distance, appearance, interests, background/Values, lifestyle and keyword search. As for distance, many seniors just like to receive contacts from local members and Match allows one to search within as close as 5 miles from the member’s zip. Other than that, one can still refine and filter the search results by “with photos”, “online now” and “Available for Chat” items. Hopefully you would get what you want by screening like this in detail. All these search criteria you choose can be saved so you don’t have to put them in one by one next time when you do a search again.
Just like their site name goes, Match has a terrific match system that would send you 5 possible matches on a daily bases. You can check “yes” to recommended members to show your interest in that member or simple ignore if you don’t like all of them. There is mutual match part that shows the members that meet your standards and you also match what they are looking for. You can also check the reverse match part for members who are looking for someone just like you.
There is one other feature that makes Match.com stands out from other mature dating sites. It has the guarantee that users’ who don’t find someone special within the first six months of searching receive another six-month membership for free. With that said, you may be rest assured that you can finally find that one for you on this site despite match.com costs a little more than some other older dating sites. It would be cost worthy.
