Singles website match.com

I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with this website. I have not had a date in a very long time and feel that I am ready to start. You have to pay for a membership which for me would be about $30.00 a month but they guarantee that if you don't meet someone in 6 months that they will give you six months free. Any insite would be greatly appreciated.

It worked very well for me, but it really depends on where you live. If you live in sparsely populated place, or with low internet penetration, it just wont work well. The last web stats I saw was Match.com was 60% female. Tinder though is 2 guys to every woman: https://mic.com/articles/110774/two-thirds-of-tinder-users-are-men-here-s-why#.u29TpoB5v

My experience was not that great on Match for the same reason OKCPirate mentioned - women out number men. I should also mention it was my very first foray into "dating" and I really didn't know very well how to filter, etc.

Match is great. Been on it multiple times. I'm on it now, I'm just filtering people now until my liquids phase is over lol.

Had a wonderful 3 year relationship with an attorney I met on it. We broke up because he ultimately wanted to spend most of his time overseas. We're still good friends.

And then had a very serious, longterm relationship with a guy who owned a construction company. We broke up recently, due to family issues, but we lived together, were just about married, and were very much in love. Still not over this one .

I had not so great experiences on there as well, but I'm - unfortunately- a professional online dater at this point, and eharmony was horrible, tinder is def just a hook up app, and plenty of fish isn't bad, but I like memberships that make you pay because I find these men are more serious.

It depends how old you are too. I feel like match is for older 20's to 60's and there are better apps for different age groups. If you're jewish or christian, i have friends that have met their significant others and married from j date and christian mingle.

That's my 2 cents!

I'm thinking of migrating over to Match myself. I am on eHarmony and like it but my matches have suddenly switched to being from Canada. I had a lot of matches in the US but now every match is in Canada. I don't have anything against Canadians but I don't want to deal with the hassle.

Ive had some not so good experiences with dating sites. 110% was related to my weight. I seem to be the perfect match for every guy I'm interested in..... until we meet in person. Ive even sent pictures of me before hand so i dont get such rejection. Doesn't matter. Also, most men on dating sites are either only looking for hookups, lying, married or just want fwb. Very few are truly after finding 'the one'. Not to say that its true in every case, because i have found some genuine ppl on there. But online dating is not for the weak or for anyone with low self-esteem. Just my opinion.

I went onto Match for one month. I did get dates but, there are a lot of scammers on there. People from overseas looking for money. Also, Match has "bait". Really good looking people to try and suck you in when there is no chance with them because they are set up on the sight to lure you in.
