My Matchcom Review - And A Few Tips
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I have been active in online dating off and on for about five years now. I have been on a bunch of sites, but today I am going to focus this article on one of the major ones, Match. This article will be my Match review.

As mentioned before Match is one of the larger dating sites on the internet. It is advertised on TV, so they have a lot of people signing up to use their website. One of the biggest advantages of Match is that it is widely known. Even if you do live in a rural area chances are there will still be a good amount of people on Match in your area. This definitely is not the case with smaller, obscure dating sites.

Another good thing about Match is that you can browse through profiles at your leisure. You can do searches for people based on physical traits such as height, eye color, hair color and probably a few others that I can't think off the top of my head. You can also search for people based on their interests, keywords in their profile, marital status, drinking/smoking habits, and many more. If you have a particular person in mind this makes it really easy to search for people that meet your criteria.

The bad things. If you're a woman and you have a good profile picture you could quite possibly receive 20 plus emails a day(no exaggeration). I have several female friends that have all told me the same thing. This can be a little overwhelming. On the other hand if you are a man, you might send out 50 emails(the daily limit) and only get a few responses which can be extremely frustrating.

I personally believe that dating sites are a great resource for women to use. You don't have to do much work and you will have guys sending you email after email. It can be a great resource for men as well, but you are going to have to work a little harder if you're a guy.

If you're a guy that is reading this don't discouraged by a lack of responses to your email. Keep sending out emails. Change your profile picture and see if you get a better response with the new picture. In my personal experience I have found that a picture with a warm smile, a profile that is funny, and emails that are funny get the best response rate.

If you're a woman, I would recommend that if you aren't getting a whole lot of emails you might want to change your profile pic and see if that helps. Also, don't be afraid to email men first.

Overall, I think Match can be a great resource when it comes to online dating. It might take a little effort, but I think in the end it is worth it
