Old grandads
by LauraAnneArt on 2019/05/22 08:04
Well. The app itself has a nice design and more modern. However, the people it matches you up with or people that are allowed to see your profile, either live too far away (despite setting an age/distance range), WAY too old for me at 24 and old enough to be my dad or too young. The people I have met on here have weird hang ups as well and are just downright strange. I don’t recommend for people who are young, I’d go elsewhere!! Avoid!
Unsafe for women
by Take90 on 2019/05/21 10:06
I am a woman using the app in London. I constantly get bombarded with messages from men abroad, many of these profiles look like complete scam. There’s also ton of notifications about views that I don’t care about. There is absolutely no filter to receive messages from UK only or from a certain age group. The privacy options even after paying a hefty subscription fee are a joke! Also why do I need to pay £10 per month extra just to be able to hide my profile? I just want to have meaningful conversations with people I connect with and don’t want to be bombarded with messages from scammers. This app is definitely not for young women and I can see why Bumble is now more popular.
Don’t waste your money
by gfctibv on 2019/05/21 07:07
Photos come up terribly...so zoomed in that I’m basically a nose! Search criteria doesn’t work....shows me people hundreds of miles away even though my settings are 20. Online help doesn’t work. Match coach says she changes your criteria the continues to show you the same type of user! Don’t bother, pof is better and it’s free!
Very poor response to messages
by whelmic on 2019/05/19 12:30
I am fairly attractive, have a well written profile and have sent carefully worded messages linked to peoples profiles, yet out of over 100 messages sent I have only had 1 reply! I can only assume that the site is full of bots not real people.
Generally bad
by zootlewurdle on 2019/05/17 07:02
I see no way to unfavourite people. When you sign up you seem to start with a load automatically. Even those you favourited manually seem impossible to change. The most aggravating problem are the search results. They return inappropriate people. E.g., you’re one or two years outside the age range they’re looking for. What’s the point showing me that person? It’s wasting my time showing me them and had I not noticed it’d waste their time reading a message from me. Deleted my account and the app.
Absolutely useless
by BrownEyes11 on 2019/05/15 09:43
If you want to chat with people on the site you have to make an account. They don’t offer you any trial to test the app out. You will get lots of fake likes and views when you are not subscribed; also messages from users that you can’t read. Also, if you are not subscribed users don’t know that you are not. Therefore if you don’t reply (you can’t unless you are subscribed!) they will think you are ignoring them. In addition, you get contacted by people all over the UK, even if you selected you are looking for people around your area. There is an option that supposedly would allow you to save a search, but this doesn’t work (May 2019). So every time you want to search for users you have to fill in the form with filters again. Also there isn’t a filter for diet. So say you only want to view vegetarians (vegans are not even on the list!) you can’t. Suggestions you get on the main page are rubbish. ‘Based on your favourites’ apparently. But no, nothing worth looking at. I regret subscribing; it’s expensive and you get very little interaction once you have paid, or you get people messaging and they are miles away so you couldn’t possibly date them on a weekly basis anyway. Match.com should offer a free trial, the possibility to send at least a few messages a day with users on a free subscription account. They shouldn’t have fake profile and send out fake views and fake favourites just to make you subscribe. I had over 1000 views within the first 24 hours of making an account, it made me think it was full of eligible bachelors-but as soon as I could view the likes and views, it went down to 100 a day. Generally speaking from a woman’s point of view men on this app are not very attractive and not very smart either. My advice? Ditch the app. Hop on meet up to meet people in person, in your area, with same interests, doing something fun, and without spending £10 per month!
Terrible !
by aceface83 on 2019/05/14 11:23
Why pay for this RUBBISH ? Plenty better apps than this with the same people like Bumble , it’s a total RIP OFF don’t bother !
Bad
by mshazmac on 2019/05/13 10:18
The service from Match seems to be getting worse. They constantly have the same people looking at your account which makes it look busy. Eventually these people are messaging you because they think your to shy to talk to them but you’ve never looked at their profile, so then you have to explain that it’s Match that does it. Also when I put someone as a favourite or wink most of the time it doesn’t go through and is also favouriting people I would never even consider due to age/location etc. Come on Match sort it out!
Money grabbing
by 13806875 on 2019/05/10 15:36
Let’s face it it’s just a cash cow . It amazing if you are a member you don’t get that many people to talk to but when your subscription runs out you get all kinds of attention 🤔🤔 also when you match with someone you still can’t talk to them without subscribing , so all they want is your money There is better apps out there peeps so use them
Not convinced
by SMiLEYSMiLE1966 on 2019/05/10 08:07
I’ve given so much money to match over the years looking for my ideal partner. I’m not convinced of its integrity to finding that special one. They are here to take your money only.
This app so buggy!!!
by KoEdo82 on 2019/05/09 15:18
...Sign up...subscribe...after that down frost the whole application...drop out a system...you can not log in again...money and time wasting!!!!!!!!
Just look at recent reviews
by apbm1 on 2019/05/09 05:17
Absolute garbage and non-existent customer support. You're better of with the free dating apps.
Absolute con, steer clear
by IdentityP45 on 2019/05/07 22:23
Match will entice you in with low rates only to fleece you later with full price once you’ve forgotten about your auto-renewal. If you do remember to cancel, match makes it as difficult as possible to do so. Cloaking your subscription cancellation at every turn. They are not to be trusted! The site, layout and messaging service really isn’t that great either. Not worth the money!
Free to look at profiles
by baldyhugs on 2019/05/03 11:54
You have to subscribe if you want to message anyone, can't see the point of the free service
They’ll steal your money
by Beakey0 on 2019/05/01 07:27
I tried this service and subscribed for what I thought was a fixed 6 month period. After that without reminder that my subscription was expiring match continued to charge me and gave no reminder/warning that my subscription was due, they just took the money without a word.
Save your money
by PencoedMum on 2019/04/30 16:01
This app is a complete waste of time. I cant get it to only show me new matches, I get messages saying X has viewed my profile and then hear nothing (thereby implying that they didn’t like what they saw) and 99% of the messages I do get from people I try to message are “Sorry, your invitation was declined” which is more soul destroying than if they’d just ignored me. Totally de-motivating. The details it asks you to fill out are stupid, like “what size are you looking for?” And then choose all from the list that apply. Why cant I just say “size doesnt matter”? I’d come off but Ive already paid upfront for 6 months. So instead I just get the endless X has viewed my profile emails. I presume there must be a way to turn these off but I cant find it.
Bs
by veryrub.com on 2019/04/21 21:02
This is a complete con. As with all dating apps, advertises as Free, but in order to view anyone who has shown an interest, you have to subscribe! Why send notifications telling me I have a message but charge £30 a month to view...?
Why did I bother subscribing
by spring0708 on 2019/04/20 19:21
Complete waste of money. I want a refund grrrrr no matter how many times I try & put the distance to 20 miles (I live in London) it keeps showing me guys from all over the UK. The rest of the search engine doesn’t work properly either. I specify what I am after & yet it shows me what I am not after. So annoying. Please don’t waste your money & time.
Don’t bother over priced says its free and it isn’t
by jimmychoo81 on 2019/04/14 17:14
Been on and off here few times it’s over priced what you get says it’s free and it isn’t
Not worth downloading
by pandyfandy on 2019/04/12 22:27
The app freezes, sends notifications but app doesn’t show them. I have to close it down every time before I use it. I rarely visit the site because of the poor app. It’s not easy to navigate and is better to visit the site on a lap top. Developers need to sort this out.
Dead app
by Pale shelter on 2019/04/12 16:17
As others below have said, this site is over. It's incredibly glitchy to use: over-priced: and difficult to cancel your subscription. The quality of matches is very low (I used this app a couple of years show and it was MUCH better). I guess everyone's gone onto other apps. The most interest I get now is from men old enough to be my dad! Good luck everyone.
One of the more decent sites but...
by Laur122 on 2019/04/12 09:01
Match in my view, is more user friendly than eHarmony but there’s too many fake matches. For example, if you click on a match that viewed you today, quite often they’ve not been on site for more than 3 months, or when you click a profile their physical preferences, hair, race etc is completely opposite to yours, or they have just one photo in their profile. The new ‘your profile is proving popular today...’ is also annoying. Before you’d get four notifications informing you that someone has viewed your profile. You still get the four same notifications plus the so called your profile is popular notification. Overall, a decent site so far - the site is better than the phone app.
Renewing
by Wastedeffort23 on 2019/04/10 21:15
Still yet you use this on your phone, but you cannot cancel. They want you to go to computer so they are trapping you into contract that will never end, unless you go to a computer. Poor app yet others allow you to use your mobile cancel so I’m still stuck in poor quality app. Shame on you to prey on people vulnerability 🤬🤬🤬
THEY WON'T DELETE FAKE PROFILES
by Buzzinfly on 2019/04/08 08:49
Waste of time and money. Don’t bother. Only get emails and “winks” when subscription runs out. Odd,that. Last subscription I made wouldn’t let me use paid for content. Finally got a refund from Apple,as match.com “support” said they couldn’t find my account details when I asked for it to be deleted after they had ignored my request for a refund. NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOG IN ON THE APP FOR A MONTH,SO BE WARNED IF YOU PAY FOR A SUBSCRIPTION YOU’LL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THE SO CALLED SPECIAL FEATURES ANYWAY,WHAT A SHAMEFUL RACKET. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT PAY FOR THIS APP AS YOU MAY END UP OUT OF POCKET LIKE ME. Priceless. Oh,sorry it’s not.
Don’t waste your money
by Stupidnicknameballs on 2019/04/03 09:50
This has to be the worst app I’ve used. I thought as Match are well established I could trust that the experience I received (for a £30 subscription plus extras) would be second to none. Wrong. The app itself is poor. Bad UI, intermittent notifications and a TERRIBLE boost system. Also, decent matches are slim pickings. Then, once someone likes/winks/favourites you, messaging them in nigh on impossible due to the fact the majority of users have free accounts and can’t view messages! I gave this a go because but keen on the shallow nature of apps like Tinder. However, Match is using the same swipe left/right mechanism themselves! With novelty rubbish thrown in for good measure. Just stick with Tinder and Bumble.
Problem on iPad.
by Davyayr on 2019/04/02 09:24
I use this app on my iPhone without any problem. On my iPad it’s a different story. When I go to type anything I can’t see the text so have hope it’s right. I can see the start on the words “Write a message” under the send button. Please fix.
Cannot write a message
by Swwitt on 2019/03/30 14:05
In the latest version 8.3.0 you cannot write a message on the app, it is just blank.
Corporate pigs
by mdt552 on 2019/03/29 22:55
So I’m 18, right? Looking for a nice girl haha! But the thing is, I’ve got 200 likes or whatever, but I can’t bloody see them without paying an extortionate amount of money!
No decent men
by no luck on here on 2019/03/28 19:55
No one around my age, all the men are desperate ugly or just plain simple, rubbish site
Hands down the buggiest app on the App Store!
by Glenbo on 2019/03/28 11:42
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve suddenly been jumped into another profile whilst reading the one I was interested in! Match simply doesn’t make any effort to get this right all they want is money! Their pick list contains people you’ve blocked or have blocked you! ABSOLUTELY hopeless! Appallingly bad! AVOID!
Disappointment
by whatiswrimgwithnicknameistaken on 2019/03/28 10:54
This app is a disappointment, freezes constantly not worth your money . More scammers and inappropriate members then on Tinder .
Problem with update
by Sandwarb18 on 2019/03/24 19:16
On my iPad with this new update, I can no longer type replies to conversations. Please fix!
Hideous
by Quijibo1993 on 2019/03/24 18:04
What on earth have you done to the messages feature? Why does it now show new messages as “chat requests” and why can’t I scroll through these new chat requests rather than viewing each one separately full screen? It’s absolutely impossible to use. Dreadful!
Problems loading app
by tbirdse25 on 2019/03/23 07:50
Was fine up until yesterday, now the app seems to get stuck on the loading page. Very frustrating!
Does anybody actually test these apps
by eggungsct6h55sv88 on 2019/03/22 21:21
There is always something that doesn’t work - this time have you tried to edit your details only if you don’t show the keyboard
Don’t waste your money
by yvie66 on 2019/03/16 19:08
I strongly believe now these sites are fixed. I have had one date since subscribing and another member also had the same experience. I was on zoosk and now I’m not a paid member I get a message every day trying to lure me back into handing over more money. Just a complete rip off and not easy to cancel as you can only do that 2 days before end of current subscription.
Don’t download
by Shaneyy1 on 2019/03/15 22:41
These guys must pay people for positive feedback. I understand having a subscription service but forcing you to pay £29.99 a month just so you can message someone is ridiculous...yes you heard me correctly, you can’t message matches or anything unless you subscribe. Sort it out.
Watch out
by rokkudan on 2019/03/15 11:59
Match will take money from your account whenever they feel like it apparently
App is pretty bad
by Miahannahbanana on 2019/03/10 09:15
The app is so buggy. I will get an email that I’ve received a message and then when I go into the app I have to refresh it a load of times and go in and out of the app before it appears. Then it will crash and go onto another part of the app. Sometimes will then have to repeat this process. I have the same problem on the mobile browser. Also, there doesn’t seem to be an option to unlike someone? It’s easily accidentally done that you like someone but if you don’t mean to I can’t see a way to change that. The distance is also incredibly inaccurate. I had someone from Paris and Dubai come up!! I get maybe they have to put others in outside of your distance if not enough people come up but surely I don’t have to travel to another continent! Also, even though I’ve turned notifications on the app, they don’t come up. Several people who I’ve spoken to on there say the same happens to them too. Hopefully these things get fixed so I can actually use the app properly.
Poor matching service
by Garden girl2 on 2019/03/09 08:56
No actual ‘matching’ logic and ignores your preferences when suggesting matches eg At 5’10’’ I’ve said looking for men 6ft and over... keeps recommending people under 5’9. No customer service support for issues. I tried using online contact and will not submit. If you cancel your renewal even with 2 months paid up front, this app does not show any new messages. It shows them in the count but not the actual message. You have to find the person from their user name in the email notification and click to message them... only then does their message show. Funny only happened when I cancelled the renewal. Awful dating site!
Terrible app and charged after deleting account
by RachC1993 on 2019/03/03 10:01
After following the steps to delete my account through the match.com app, it was not made clear that I would also need to unsubscribe through the Apple App Store to stop further fees being deducted. I have now been charged another £59.99 one month after deleting my account, and after researching it looks like there is no option to get this money back. Also, the app was terrible. I set my criteria and I still received messages from guys way out of my radius (including from other countries) and age range (had mine set 8 years older than me, but received messages from guys 40 years older). Such a waste of time and money. Just use the free apps like tinder and bumble which uses your set criteria only.
Matchless
by timbo333333 on 2019/02/26 01:20
Absolute bag of trash ....
Too complicated and self generated responses
by lotusman100 on 2019/02/22 22:51
The new discover view (default) users a tinder style swipe process. If the swipe right isn't reciprocated, it sends out an abrupt standard email and blocks you from further chat - all you did was ‘like’ the person ! There are more and more fake accounts. If you report them you get a standard response which use data protection as an excuse to do nothing about it. I will not be wasting any more money on this this app or Match. Avoid!
Don’t do it
by Jimmynopals on 2019/02/22 19:44
Pointless. Have more luck on tinder as a freebie. Tried this app due to the adverts etc. Signed up free like tinder and bumble. Within 2 days I’ve had 103 potential interests that want to meet but I can’t see them or message etc. That’s deliberate just to try and draw me in to subscribing and if I did they aren’t likely to materialise as legit interests. Preying on people looking for love 😊. Entertain this app at your peril .
Expensive
by Ry de ry on 2019/02/20 18:58
What can you actually do without a subscription ?!
Absolute rubbish
by Richard from Leeds on 2019/02/18 20:42
I’ve been a member of match for 3 years but this isn’t a review of the service, it’s a review of the new app and website. It’s utterly rubbish. So much so that I’m going to quit I think. I loved the old app where you could just see who was online in grid form and who’s around you in the same grid form. Not now oh no. No you have a ridiculous tinder style of yes or no to messages etc. You can’t even see who’s online without swiping yes or no to them. Gone are the old ways of doing things. The app doesn’t seem to know how many messages I’ve got either as I haven’t got any new ones but the app says I have 1. Also, rather than list them like any normal service, it asks me for a definitive “yes” or “no” as to whether I want to message them back? I don’t know whether these are new messages or old ones as there’s no date on them and they’re not listed on the list. Why oh why do people have to mess with things. Match have had £800 out of me since October 2015 but I’ve now had enough. A good service has turned to bad and I’m not going to pay good money for something that is rubbish to use.
Too much interference.
by username R on 2019/02/17 04:39
Match has a new policy of forcing traffic to see your profile, you’re not given a choice. So, you can’t tell anymore, on just who is interested or not. Just random people viewing, so you learn to ignore them and stop monitoring your own account, because it’s just a commercial idea on the part of Match.com that is annoying.
Rubbish
by Monkieyes on 2019/02/16 15:00
Seriously don’t waste your time or money.
No free trial
by TracyMuffi on 2019/02/14 09:21
Should be able to try for free! Don’t want to pay so much money for a service I’m unsure is right for me! Can’t send messages can’t read messages can’t do anything without paying through the nose!
Impossible
by Bazooka.Joe on 2019/02/11 08:09
I certainly don't have two heads but my experience of this site isn’t good. For example, this month I’ve sent 30 messages and received 29 of those standard match template rejection messages from women. This site is totally confidence destroying and all I have got out of it is serious doubts about how appealing I am to women. I cannot think why I should pay fir this. Update : another 10 messages sent today and another 10 automatic rejections. Update : another 5 messages sent, another 5 standard match rejections
Automated responses
by sunderlandgirl on 2019/02/10 18:59
Seriously guys add you to their favourites and wink at you constantly then you message them and they send an automated not interested response. Why waste my time then if your not interested! So many fakes expected so much more for a site you have to pay for!
App should have features
by RodneyTrout on 2019/02/09 07:57
Why is the app so much less functional than the website. Simple things like being able to un-favourite someone or hide rather than block a profile should not be difficult to add to the app. I suspect that most people now use the app more than the website so Match please put more effort into the app. It would be good if profiles that have not been active for over three months are automatically hidden too.
New update shocking
by Jiffy kid logo on 2019/02/08 17:42
New update makes it even worse than before. Have to go through a yes no or maybe just to read a message Someone has sent. Then if you don’t reply straight away-you have to go through the same process all over again just to get to it!!!!!! I just recently re-subscribed and can’t be bothered to go through all these messages with no idea when they were sent!!!! (There is no date) Can’t set any preferences for top picks of the day. Have had messages from as far away as Norway! Full of old profiles too..... and have to be very specific in what you put into search. Very frustrating. Won’t be renewing if it stays the same.
Rubbish two accounts created under same login details
by datemissing on 2019/02/06 21:58
Don’t waste time and money. This is painful! No reply from customer service You can not cancel directly through app or on mobile devices ( what century are they in) only able to cancel when you use a desktop!!
Not worth the cost
by Stavros the great on 2019/02/05 19:20
Pretty appalling app and company....you pay to download app and then you don’t get all the features and still have to keep buying top-up boosts. I regret signing up.
Crap!!
by MatthewFellowUK on 2019/02/05 10:35
What a load of crap!! You can’t do anything unless you UGRADE!! Want to open the app?! UPGRADE Want to take another breath? UPGRADE You can’t even send messages on the app unless you, UPGRADE Useless crap.
Useless place
by Mufasa8176 on 2019/02/04 02:43
Used to be just about ok .. now it turned to rubbish completely with this rejection system., Totally rubbish ., will not renew my subscription
Tinder with a subscription
by 10bluebell on 2019/02/03 21:41
I’ve been on and off this site for a couple of years and found it good. It’s last big update has seen the app turn into a swipe right Tinder format. Your ability to Easily search or view local people on line has gone. You wake up to the excitement of the message 10 people have viewed your profile to find out none of them are local and most don’t match your profile. I set my preferences to within 20 miles of home, Tinder!, sorry match ignores to make it look like your profile is popular. Don’t waste your money.
Bug
by En'so on 2019/02/03 11:28
Just wanted to alert you to a bug I’m having that wasn’t fixed in the last update. I keep getting visited by the same user. Yesterday it was 120+ times today is starting even worse. They have been blocked but still appear to have access to my profile. I don’t know who to contact in regards to stopping this fault. Please sort this ASAP
Pay to be hidden.
by devdubs on 2019/02/01 11:45
As a heterosexual male, once you’re a paid subscriber the views, winks etc suddenly plummet. To get the same visibility you then need to buy ‘boosts’ (which are capped at around 30 notifications). There’s also quite a few suspiciously fake profiles, and you unsurprisingly get more interest a week or two before the end of your subscription. Match are a great case study as to why the online dating industry needs regulating.
Absolutely rubbish don’t waste your money.
by Pika998 on 2019/01/31 16:28
So I decided to try this after getting a lovely message from a girl on here. So I sign up and pay the fee to rejoin and lo and behold no message, clearly it was just a tactic to get me to sign up again. The problem with apps like this although it has a great layout etc theirs loads of problems and bugs. Firstly like most dating apps it’s a double pay app so even though you paid once it asks you to pay more to be featured on everybody’s searches etc, and you can also boosts yourself and give digital gifts to people all at a cost so if your willing to pay more you get more while they laugh on their way to the bank with your money. Now on to the problems. Problem one the tinder part. Yes theirs a tinder part where you can swipe left or right but 90% of the girls in this part have not filled out their profiles so their not paying members so it’s pointless doing this. Second problem the search problem using the search menu your reminded that their laughing at you for paying for this again cause their is not an option to search for paying members meaning that although you can set it to search and it will bring up members you don’t know if their paying or not so if their not paying, so they can’t even read your message also if you live in London you probably get a lot more people but out here in Middlesbrough one person laugh all you can match you won’t be getting another penny out of me. you can also set it to search who’s online yet again you can’t set it to search for paying members so it’s pointless doing this. Third problem (yeah there’s more might as well complain on here) the coach yes apparently theirs a dating coach on this app a programmed cyber helper who is useless you apparently type in things and it’ll try and help you find profiles of girls, you if to be very per sliced or else you just get lead around in circles. The message problem wow girls are so savage no giving you a chance just shot you down straight away, excuse me this is a dating website not a reason to die Seriously you shouldn’t be able to shot people down with a message which wasn’t even written by you straight way I think I would rather just go back to being ignored. Also when messaging you can’t see if you already message them before so you could be wasting your time. Plus even if you pay unless you upgrade your only allowed 10 a day. Problem with help yes theirs help on how to write your profile etc or selling yourself problem is it says the bare minimum no what not to do or how not to do it, just be funny and your stuck thinking how is that helpful just be funny yeah that helps.
Don’t like the recent changes
by 357user468 on 2019/01/30 08:48
New main page is too time consuming, you have to now physically go in to each profile. The recent changes to the inbox features put you off initial messaging, getting no reply is one thing but a rejection message is worse! Who thought that up?!
Angry
by mae638394 on 2019/01/29 21:36
Match shouldn’t make you pay to see who likes you and wants to text you like that’s bull Tinder does not make you pay and that a really well known app for dating unlike this app and it’s making u pay rip off
Waste of time
by Ieu345 on 2019/01/29 11:42
What a waste of time and money this app is there is no one around you and when you put a search in it bring people up from bloody London which isn’t any help tinder and bumble are so much as I don’t like to admit plus they are so much cheaper it’s crazy £30 per month compared to £.

by daaahahaaha on 2019/01/28 09:35
If you want an old, fat, ugly, fake timing wasting profiles, or a slut with 12 kids, then this is the app for you 😂 Apprently it used to be good, 10 years ago 😆 So man up & go to a bar find a girl the real way.
LADIES PLEASE READ THIS...IMPORTANT
by Boomamaboo on 2019/01/24 10:11
Ok so I joined, paid my £30, started to get lots of messages, all good right? Wrong, In the 3 days I was using it I had endless fake profiles trying to obtain personal information from me, mobile numbers but especially after your email address. If you do engage in conversation with these people you can tell they’re not English by the language they use, how they say things, copy and pasted messages (which are usually duplicated). They tell you they need it as their subscription is about to lapse. The same photo ( of a very handsome man) will often be used on different accounts .... please please be aware of this, divulge personal info at your peril...... so ladies if it sounds too good to be true...it probably is!!
New interface is rubbish
by AcidTrest on 2019/01/23 18:50
Bring back the old discover interface. I know you want to get people showing on others profiles but this seems underhand on your part give us the option to look through without doing the tinder style yes or no lol
BE AWARE OF AUTO RENEWALS. No contactable customer service.
by Hughesie2012 on 2019/01/22 08:21
BE AWARE OF AUTO RENEWALS. This site will automatically renew your subscription and there is no easy way of getting in touch for a refund. They will block emails, phone calls and you will perpetually pay over and over for a service you may never wish to continue to use.
Garbage
by Poltice1984 on 2019/01/18 08:29
Absolutely garbage!! Can’t do anything at all without paying at least £60. Stick to tinder it’s far better
Aaah
by msnytttt on 2019/01/17 00:07
Frustrating this app is a waste of money and time, especially having to pay for it.. match you can do better
Renewal outta nowhere!
by Rszydlowski on 2019/01/15 18:58
I signed up for ‘1 month’ subscription and out of nowhere, with no warning about subscribing again, I’ve been charged £39.89! WTF?! Thanks for telling me Match! Other than being over charged, natch has been ok. A lot more maturer than tinder
Not worth it
by Zaa Zehuti on 2019/01/14 14:56
Gentlemen, do you want to pay a ridiculous amount of money each month to be able to send messages to women that then reply with an automated template saying you aren’t good enough? Well this is the site for you! You will get hundreds of views and not a single message, and you’ll end up feeling depressed about the whole thing. To make matters worse Match will autorenew your membership as well if you aren’t careful
Can’t use the site
by taylojo on 2019/01/09 22:07
Renewed subscription, funds cleared and paid 3 days ago , still can’t use the site . Asking me to subscribe each time I try to access my messages etc . Not happy , emailed Match waiting for a response.
Absolutely pointless
by Jimbob20142015 on 2019/01/08 23:09
Markets itself as a free service but other than creating a profile you cannot do anything at all without having to pay a substantial fee. It’s basically tinder but costs £30 per month. Baffles the mind, in a world of free dating apps this surely has its days numbered.
One star not two!
by bollieforme on 2019/01/06 00:29
Have installed the app cannot even get it to load the alphabet to type in my location! Have used match before as I believed the hype. Kind of pleased that I couldn’t get beyond screen one as a new user just shows how little it’s become user friendly! Really very poor Match get it sorted!
Got married
by Not working review on 2019/01/05 16:00
I met the man I married from this site .... keep looking folks it works!
Just a personal opinion but
by drugo2009 on 2019/01/04 23:36
This app is a waste of time and money. The only way to chat with someone is when both have a subscription, which is fair enough. The problem is there is no chance to know who have a subscription so you have to pay in order to message somebody m, hoping that the other one has payed as well or otherwise you’re just wasting your time, and your money.
Very poor experience
by The Unforgiven 666 on 2019/01/04 13:42
The app on the dating side is not great. However what most shocked me is the absence of compliance of this app and their marketing activities with data protection laws in Europe. I’ve opted out of all possible emails, and continue to receive marketing emails. That’s in breach of GDPR. Customer service is the least helpful and asks me to click on the « unsubscribe link » (not like I didn’t do that and it didn’t take me to the same screen that shows I’m opted out of everything and sent all screenshots to them). They continue to tell me to click on unsubscribe. I’ve rarely seen such poor customer service... and one that takes customers for idiots is a first. Run away from this app - they’re the worst. Not worth the money at all.
Can’t see messages
by lolz-123 on 2019/01/04 11:51
I’ve been using this app on and off for several years and the latest update is not good at all in respect that I can’t see new messages. It tells me I have a number of new messages but when I click the message icon there is only my read messages and no new ones. Unless there is another section of the app to view new messages there is an error in the new style app. It’s a bit pointless paying for a subscription to contact people if you can’t see who’s contacted you!! Will be giving the app another week or so before cancelling my subscription and deleting.
Appalling business practice
by Jayaki on 2018/12/27 23:37
I’ll start by saying that the app itself is pretty well structured and easy to use. However as a free user you’ll be completely restricted, which I guess is normal for these sort of apps. Now this is where they get you. The most popular subscription model is 6 months for 3x payments of £19.99 which again is pretty standard. Once you’ve subscribed your options for unsubscribing become very limited, you only get 24 hours to unsubscribe which will prevent any future payments coming out. After the 24 hours are up you’re locked into the full 6 months and the unsubscribe option will only become available again 48 hours before your next payment (in 6 months time) is due. Clearly this is put in place so customers will forget about it and it will auto-renew. Needless to say this is absolutely disgusting and borderline illegal. The reason for not being able to cancel before that time is due to “technical issues” ... sure it is. Frankly I feel that this business practice is extremely predatory and that Match has lost all of its integrity as a company. They will not be getting another penny from me. Appalling.
Don’t do it.
by lie locator on 2018/12/27 16:37
I would not go on here if my life depended on it! I signed up 8 years ago and after my subs ended few months later the money continued to come out of my account. I could not stop it or contact anyone. I was even denied renewed access and still am. I was livid. My e mail address is still ‘taken by another user’ as they say. That, being me! So a total mess.
Cost
by geordspark on 2018/12/26 10:01
To expensive for a dating app. Since i used this site three years ago it has doubled in price, used to be £15 a month and now is £30 a month. This app has cost me £90 and now I have stopped my subscription but still have the free profile which is just made me seem very arrogant and rude because I haven’t responded to any messages or can’t see any messages so what’s the point.
Pants
by Thribbly on 2018/12/26 08:03
Just signed up for a new subscription and already hugely disappointed by this app. Endless bugs telling me something has gone wrong, half of the pages don’t load first time or even third time round and then it crashes altogether. If you’re going to take such huge sums of money from people then SORT IT OUT Match as only a fully working, bug free app from such a large company is acceptable.
Latest version terrible
by Tom2345634 on 2018/12/23 18:07
Latest version is terrible. Replaced discover with a tinder like swipe system that shows a single picture and hardly any profile information. Pointless and just not right for match. If I want to swipe, I’d use tinder.
What have they done!?!?
by scotw on 2018/12/20 20:26
I really don’t like the new format of the discover page!!!! Please go back to the old format, you’ve basically copied OkCupid and it’s an awful format!!!
Very bad new interface
by bandit600 on 2018/12/20 18:47
Good example on how to do worst than before
New layout= awful
by Gav678378393 on 2018/12/17 23:09
The best thing about the previous versions was being able to browse photos, age and location of numerous woman on the ‘discover’ tab. Now that has changed and been replaced by a tinder based swipe system, where if I swipe right, they are automatically added to my favourites; bring back the old feature.
New update lost shuffle function
by R@¥M0ND0 on 2018/12/17 22:44
Why has the new update suddenly lost the shuffle function so now I can only search? Also I seem to be getting a lot of standard responses with just a slight variation.... seems automated to me 🤔🤔 Are these profiles legit?
Wtf is this?
by Silverballs77 on 2018/12/17 21:00
I think whoever has designed this app either is trying too hard to be different , or just a bit incompetent. The app is the least intuitive I’ve ever used. It’s a labyrinthine mess that leaves you confused and annoyed. You can’t find anyone local, and it chucks out suggestions for people that can be anywhere from 1 mile away, to 100 miles away. It’s also stuffed with fake profiles. Frankly you’d have more luck meeting someone walking around Tesco’s this evening
Save your money, don’t subscribe. This is a real review...
by SpecialDonut on 2018/12/16 10:29
I’ve never written a review for a App, it’s just not something I do, but I feel compelled to write this one. Match.com is littered with fake profiles. The quantity of profiles with fake images and the standard ‘automated’ replies and messages which are clearly generated by Match.com is frankly staggering. Whilst there are some genuine profiles, these are in the vast minority. March.com also make it very hard for you to leave too, so think twice about subscribing; there are other sites out there that I’m sure provide a better return. I’m sorry Match.com, but until you get your own house in order and police your own product, you will loose genuine people and your brand will suffer and your better managed competition will win.
Match
by mbytdyewhkl on 2018/12/15 21:41
How come messages are coming back the worded the same from different people , scam
Don’t sell your self respect
by Fdjidjrn on 2018/12/13 22:02
I’ve been a “valued” member of match for some time, and have been fortunate enough to meet 3 lovely girls that didn’t share the same outlook on life with:(. However I must stress that I’ve sent numerous messages and received (at quite a delayed and somewhat similar) context of very similarly worded replies that i know were automated 😡( I applaud you match for your deceptive tactics). Please think before you give these con artists your money, they’ll simply emotionally blackmail you for cash in your pursuit for love. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
It’s ok

Rubbish since the update
by KellyFels82 on 2018/12/09 10:37
I have had messages unread since the update that I’ve been unable to read! I have uninstalled, reinstalled and logged in desktop but to no avail! Sort it Match otherwise I will not be renewing
HATE the new system
by Trillian 46 on 2018/12/07 17:43
What’s with the ridiculous message view? Absolutely hate it. I want to see all messages thanks... not one at a time!
Utter Rubbish - Trash!!!
by JBondmyG on 2018/12/07 00:08
I am really baffled as to why this site even gets good ratings. I signed up for a month to give it a try and it was the most horrible mistake. Had mostly people 10/20 years older than me send creepy messages, despite stating the age range on my profile! The people on there don’t bother look at your profile and it’s shocking that Match.com can’t let you filter it age, distance, etc! This site didn’t do anything for me other than waste my money and time and highly advice people to not even bother joining!
Do not download
by Cass8190 on 2018/12/04 18:05
Worst dating app experience and god help you if you want to unsubscribe or make a complaint about match...can only unsubscribe by doing the following ‘You can cancel your subscription renewal from the section "My account settings", any time from 24 hours after purchase until 48 hours before your subscription runs out.’ This doesn’t work so your only choice is them on their premium rate number between 9 and 5 Monday to Friday...come on get out of the Stone Age....I also want to complain about match and there is no clearly identifiable link on their website as to how to do this...absolute thieves
What a waste of time
by FuZionz RAWR on 2018/12/04 08:15
Right so I’ve tried to put my snap and insta user in my bio so people can add me if they want to talk to me rather than having to match together first and the admins of the app just keep taking it down. And they show the people who are online and ready to chat they won’t let u talk to them and you need to pay to talk to the people who have subscribed to your account what a waste of timeeeee
Not bad but could be better!
by Zomow on 2017/10/16 18:23
Been on and off this dating site for a number of years now and only had 1 date, whether that’s due to lack of men my age group on the dating site or whether I’m pretty ugly, I don’t know! In terms of the app on the mobile, it’s not bad but could be made much better. It’s fairly user friendly and some nice features such as the shuffle, wink and being able to block or report unwelcome attention. The app could be made better by:- - Don’t like it if I tick someone in the shuffle that they end up in my favourites. - Allowing the user to edit any part of the text in the profile without having to delete parts so you read the end bit. - being able to delete searches saved - distance of a profiles being more accurate (several people live within 10 miles of me yet match states distance as 50 miles). - shuffle sometime has very limited number of profiles. - shuffle offers profiles that I don’t wish to be considered in my age group I.e. way too young or too old. - the cost of the app makes it expensive when you can only allow 10 messages per day. Sometime I don’t want to be rude so reply even if just to say not my type, but it’s used my allowance making me appear rude & ignorant if I don’t respond. - may not use any messages for several days but then may need more another day. -should be easier to cancel subscription. Ok, well I think I’ve covered everything. I shall live in hope at finding a date!
The best dating website, but expensive.
by Ross the photographer on 2017/10/16 16:31
I've used Match on and off a few times and tried a number of dating websites. Out of all of them, I feel I have the best chance of meeting someone on Match. This is mostly because it is well advertised and because it isn't free. Free websites attract all the wrong people and their users just don't take it seriously as a result. Not to mention endless fake profiles. The Match website, although an expensive service in my opinion, does appear to offer your best chance of meeting someone. It's pretty easy to use, but I don't think there are enough people on the site, though still more than other dating websites. If it was cheaper and more people used the site, it would get five stars from me. I do think Match should make it clearer that your subscription auto renews unless you cancel it a couple days before it renews. If you write a message to someone when using the phone app (iphone for me) make sure you write it outside of the Match app as when scrolling through a written message you write in the app, Match deletes it due to a bug. Write it outside of the Match app, then copy and paste it into the Match message window before sending.
Just ludicrous
by pixel.davey on 2018/01/26 17:05
I will give it 2 stars for functionality but that's about it. Think I used it for 2 days. I couldn't message anyone, when I received a message I couldn't read it. Couldn't wink at anyone either, all I could do was add to favourites, so for that one message I got and couldn't read, that may have been my true love will now be left to the ignorance of consumerism. Far too many rules and regulations with being a free non paying member. Seems like this dating business is a real money maker that I should invest in. I will not recommend any app or site that wishes to make an extortionate amount of money off lonely single, separated or widowed people, it's just infuriating. I have been on cheaper better sites long ago that I shall just take my chances with. Also you cannot deactivate your account unless you ring up someone in London at the cost of your phone bill. Says it all really.
DEAD APP - please read - Don’t even bother.
by Lee Carter on 2018/06/06 11:29
You are wasting your time if you get this app. first of all, to even message somebody, you have to subscribe by paying £30 a month, basically FORCING you to pay. This isn’t the worst part by the way. So by the time i paid for 1 month, i thought if i get a date or 2 then maybe its worth it. I would see myself as a decent looking man, i know where about my standards are. Let me add that I use TINDER & BUMBLE, i get a lot of matches and dates on there, so i know i can get interest from girls. Ive been on match for about 3 weeks, and guess what? Not one bit of interest, you know why? Cause the people that sign up use it for about a few days and leave their profiles open and never use it again, its full of useless dead profiles, i have message so many women around 30km from where i am, i think i have messaged about 200, at this point im absolutely desperate to get one match now. Heres something funny.... It gives you a feature that tells you who looks at your profile. Out of 200 girls, guess how many of them checked my profile after sending them a message?....... about 3!!!!! For the money i paid its an absolute disgrace. Until they make changes, this app will forever be DEAD. Dont waste your time, dont waste your money, check other dating sites out, you will not find love here.
What is the difference between this application and EA?
by catch(Exception e) on 2018/10/29 12:02
After using the app for awhile I have noticed it is potentially very good. However annoyingly you actually have to pay at least around £30 to see how has an interest in you, which would be one of the main features of this application and you have to pay an ludicrous amount of money to use it. Now I'm not a judge but I Think that paying £30 for a month or paying around £90 for 6 months. I can easily see the scale economy here, however that's a bit ridiculous. Check for a FULL YEAR membership in Xbox live or PlayStation plus is £40. Although I do you have an idea on how to make this app a tad bit better; Will be good to add these pointers that symbolise must haves? But of course I would recommend a limited amount of pointers.
One of the more decent sites but...
by Laur122 on 2019/04/12 09:01
Match in my view, is more user friendly than eHarmony but there’s too many fake matches. For example, if you click on a match that viewed you today, quite often they’ve not been on site for more than 3 months, or when you click a profile their physical preferences, hair, race etc is completely opposite to yours, or they have just one photo in their profile. The new ‘your profile is proving popular today...’ is also annoying. Before you’d get four notifications informing you that someone has viewed your profile. You still get the four same notifications plus the so called your profile is popular notification. Overall, a decent site so far - the site is better than the phone app.
Wishing I hadn’t subscribed
by snowy 12 on 2018/05/19 12:29
I’ve paid for 6 months subscription on the recommendation of an press article which said Match was one of the best dating sites for successful matches. However I am frustrated as the app says I have messages but I go to the emails and there are no new messages. Some profiles I suspect are old or redundant as the individuals never seem to be active. People have messaged me from 150 miles away and don’t seem to realise I’m that far away but I have entered my location. The email messaging in particular seems like I am wasting my time messaging people who are actually not paid up members (so they can’t reply) or are not active. I would like to know if someone is subscribed. On tinder you can tell who is a gold member. Overall totally underwhelmed. Fitness singles is better as is tinder and ok cupid.
Not worth it
by Specineff on 2018/03/19 23:19
Decided to take dive and shell out £30 for a month to see what, if anything, the experience is like. Yes you can pin point your types and that’s all good. It has all the features of all the other apps. But really the main thing I was looking for was less ghosting on conversations and more serious people. What I got was the same thing, but with the difference of most of the women i was being matched with were older despite filters being set. Match did nothing but the same but with the added BS of their match system, which frankly no one gives a crap about. Save your money folks. Match is not worth the fee to entry. You could get the same and cheaper experience with okc.
Worse compared to other apps
by Emiliya Ivanova on 2017/10/16 18:01
The technical part of the app for iOS is rather poor - it doesn’t have many core functions that the website has plus it freezes for no reason and you need to contact someone to change your current location, when trying to upload pictures from the app there is no way to exit this page, you need to close the whole app and reopen again to go back to the home page? The concept - I’d rather have my profile restricted for views and messaging only to the people who fall under the age bracket I’ve chosen, there are too many questions that people are usually asking anyway when they start a conversation
Pretty good but bit buggy
by Fezzilla on 2017/10/19 20:56
I really like the site and there’s a reasonable amount of fairly local women in my age group to potentially chat with. Its instinctive to use, and the shuffle feature is quite fun. My favourite things is quite a nice little addition to just the profile. It’s not 5 stars as I get false message notifications, and emails telling me I’ve had, like 7 messages or so, when actually I’ve had none. As an average looking bloke, I find I get maybe 1 response for every 10 I send, so it’s demoralising to get false message notifications. But overall, it’s a good app, a good product and yes, I have got dates!
App is pretty bad
by Miahannahbanana on 2019/03/10 09:15
The app is so buggy. I will get an email that I’ve received a message and then when I go into the app I have to refresh it a load of times and go in and out of the app before it appears. Then it will crash and go onto another part of the app. Sometimes will then have to repeat this process. I have the same problem on the mobile browser. Also, there doesn’t seem to be an option to unlike someone? It’s easily accidentally done that you like someone but if you don’t mean to I can’t see a way to change that. The distance is also incredibly inaccurate. I had someone from Paris and Dubai come up!! I get maybe they have to put others in outside of your distance if not enough people come up but surely I don’t have to travel to another continent! Also, even though I’ve turned notifications on the app, they don’t come up. Several people who I’ve spoken to on there say the same happens to them too. Hopefully these things get fixed so I can actually use the app properly.
I guess it might be better for a different age group
by Nowhere3456789 on 2018/06/20 21:12
I am 30 years old & joined match because I felt that the people on it would take finding a relationship seriously as you have to pay a high fee to join. Unlike the free sites. However once I paid the fee to join , I found that there weren’t any good matches for me, none of the matches were attractive, I searched quite far out of my area as well! I feel like I’ve wasted my money using this app. I will not be renewing my membership. It really is not worth the money at all! They should consider lowering the fees. I have stopped using it all together and I still have five months left of membership! What a disappointment & a complete waste of time & money.
Worst dating app ever.
by Londonista64 on 2018/10/12 14:51
Not only are my ‘matches’ incredibly low quality (far from the critical mass I thought would give me real choice) Match sets it up so if you join for 6 months you pay the lot in advance. Which is NOT clear. Then if you want to pause you still pay so the time you’re not on it is still on your bought time. AND they will auto bill and take payment for another subscription. You’ve no way to control who’s on your feed so will see the same faces. Again & again & again. Which means should anyone decent be on it it’s HIGHLY unlikely you will spot them amongst the dross. Even tinder is better and bumble is MUCH better. Oh and if you’re joining for events don’t bother unless you really want to learn how to make pizza.
Pay to be ignored
by Caaaarl! on 2018/10/10 19:26
I’ve tried a few online dating sites now with little success. I decided to try Match as in my mind I figured paying for the privilege would possibly prove that I’m genuine and that I’m looking for more than just ‘fun’. Unfortunately, I’ve just paid money to be ignored and made to feel pretty worthless if I’m honest. When paying for a boost to try and improve my chances, I get lots of views, but I suspect most of these profiles are fake. Apparently all of the ladies are chasing the same 10% of the guys. If, like me, you are not one of these lucky few blokes, I would strongly advise you to save your time and money. What I would like to see is a genuine dating site with ZERO fake profiles and a ban on clever camera angles and filters. Passport photos only!
Save your money
by PencoedMum on 2019/04/30 16:01
This app is a complete waste of time. I cant get it to only show me new matches, I get messages saying X has viewed my profile and then hear nothing (thereby implying that they didn’t like what they saw) and 99% of the messages I do get from people I try to message are “Sorry, your invitation was declined” which is more soul destroying than if they’d just ignored me. Totally de-motivating. The details it asks you to fill out are stupid, like “what size are you looking for?” And then choose all from the list that apply. Why cant I just say “size doesnt matter”? I’d come off but Ive already paid upfront for 6 months. So instead I just get the endless X has viewed my profile emails. I presume there must be a way to turn these off but I cant find it.
Absolute rubbish
by Richard from Leeds on 2019/02/18 20:42
I’ve been a member of match for 3 years but this isn’t a review of the service, it’s a review of the new app and website. It’s utterly rubbish. So much so that I’m going to quit I think. I loved the old app where you could just see who was online in grid form and who’s around you in the same grid form. Not now oh no. No you have a ridiculous tinder style of yes or no to messages etc. You can’t even see who’s online without swiping yes or no to them. Gone are the old ways of doing things. The app doesn’t seem to know how many messages I’ve got either as I haven’t got any new ones but the app says I have 1. Also, rather than list them like any normal service, it asks me for a definitive “yes” or “no” as to whether I want to message them back? I don’t know whether these are new messages or old ones as there’s no date on them and they’re not listed on the list. Why oh why do people have to mess with things. Match have had £800 out of me since October 2015 but I’ve now had enough. A good service has turned to bad and I’m not going to pay good money for something that is rubbish to use.
Very poor experience
by The Unforgiven 666 on 2019/01/04 13:42
The app on the dating side is not great. However what most shocked me is the absence of compliance of this app and their marketing activities with data protection laws in Europe. I’ve opted out of all possible emails, and continue to receive marketing emails. That’s in breach of GDPR. Customer service is the least helpful and asks me to click on the « unsubscribe link » (not like I didn’t do that and it didn’t take me to the same screen that shows I’m opted out of everything and sent all screenshots to them). They continue to tell me to click on unsubscribe. I’ve rarely seen such poor customer service... and one that takes customers for idiots is a first. Run away from this app - they’re the worst. Not worth the money at all.
Not A 5 Star Match
by 2$s on 2018/05/06 07:10
I picked Match because I thought it was the best dating site but I’ve been shocked at how bad it is. I filled out all the questions under the impression that it would refine my experience, sadly it doesn’t. I’m shown profiles from up and down the country and my profile is shown to people 20 years out of the range I asked for. Every time I get a message it says “Could this be the first in a long line?” even though it isn’t our first message. I paid a lot of money but still the number of profiles I can view is limited. I did the Trinder style swiping section assuming it would allow the app to learn my type, it doesn’t. If this is the best then Cupid has a better chance. Did I mention how expensive it is?
Poor matching service
by Garden girl2 on 2019/03/09 08:56
No actual ‘matching’ logic and ignores your preferences when suggesting matches eg At 5’10’’ I’ve said looking for men 6ft and over... keeps recommending people under 5’9. No customer service support for issues. I tried using online contact and will not submit. If you cancel your renewal even with 2 months paid up front, this app does not show any new messages. It shows them in the count but not the actual message. You have to find the person from their user name in the email notification and click to message them... only then does their message show. Funny only happened when I cancelled the renewal. Awful dating site!
LADIES PLEASE READ THIS...IMPORTANT
by Boomamaboo on 2019/01/24 10:11
Ok so I joined, paid my £30, started to get lots of messages, all good right? Wrong, In the 3 days I was using it I had endless fake profiles trying to obtain personal information from me, mobile numbers but especially after your email address. If you do engage in conversation with these people you can tell they’re not English by the language they use, how they say things, copy and pasted messages (which are usually duplicated). They tell you they need it as their subscription is about to lapse. The same photo ( of a very handsome man) will often be used on different accounts .... please please be aware of this, divulge personal info at your peril...... so ladies if it sounds too good to be true...it probably is!!
Unsafe for women
by Take90 on 2019/05/21 10:06
I am a woman using the app in London. I constantly get bombarded with messages from men abroad, many of these profiles look like complete scam. There’s also ton of notifications about views that I don’t care about. There is absolutely no filter to receive messages from UK only or from a certain age group. The privacy options even after paying a hefty subscription fee are a joke! Also why do I need to pay £10 per month extra just to be able to hide my profile? I just want to have meaningful conversations with people I connect with and don’t want to be bombarded with messages from scammers. This app is definitely not for young women and I can see why Bumble is now more popular.
Not very good if not subscribed
by kirsty2678836 on 2018/08/16 08:33
So far not had a very good experience as am unable to see most messages as it just says the name is ‘someone’ and doesn’t allow me to even read the message. I am also unable to see my matches, who liked my profile or if I am in someones favourites but I still get the notifications that I am but am unable to see who or do anything about it or without having a subscription. Members who do not subscribe should still be able to do these things without having to pay. Also I am still getting shown profiles and gettting messages from older men such as with a 10 to 40 year age differences which is not in the ages I selected that I would prefer.
So unreliable
by Tiktakpom000000 on 2017/12/03 23:14
Notifications only work half the time and even then, if it says I've got one message the little icon will show a random ridiculous number like 7. I sometimes read a message but the number of messages will still show as if message wasn't read. Once you have a few discussions the bottom ones get stuck and you can scroll down to click on them. I updated my descrption on desktop website and the old version is still showing in the app. Way too easy to click on a person's profile instead of on the message received which makes me look like a stalker. Poor.
Can’t see messages
by lolz-123 on 2019/01/04 11:51
I’ve been using this app on and off for several years and the latest update is not good at all in respect that I can’t see new messages. It tells me I have a number of new messages but when I click the message icon there is only my read messages and no new ones. Unless there is another section of the app to view new messages there is an error in the new style app. It’s a bit pointless paying for a subscription to contact people if you can’t see who’s contacted you!! Will be giving the app another week or so before cancelling my subscription and deleting.
I wanted to give this zero stars!
by Andyo10 on 2018/03/17 22:14
Seen this advertised and thought it would be good. I didn't always receive messages until many days or a week/s after they had initially sent it. My subscription expired and I received loads of messages from people I had messaged weeks and even months previously, thinking that they weren't interested. As my account had expired I couldn't reply to any of them and my only option would be to re-subscribe, which I definitely will not be doing. Personally would say to avoid using this site and wasting money on something when you don't even get the full service you are paying for!
Could be better
by Lou Everton on 2017/12/19 07:43
I have used this app on and off for a year and it could be so much better! Many improvements have been made but the notifications are out of sync with real time, e.g. message notifications pop up and badge icons appear but there are no messages, i have to wait 24 hrs sometimes to read the message - I feel like men are waiting for my response, they can see me online and are thinking I’m ignoring them! So annoying! So I uninstall and reinstall regularly.... come on Match! You can do better than this!
The app itself very good 👍🏻best Iv been on
by Uncle Purdy on 2018/11/07 21:19
The app itself is the best dating app I’ve been on out of the 5-6 Iv used. But sadly Iv had no joy with it as it’s always down to the women if they message you or not. Must have send 100+ messages to people and you can see they have viewed your profile but they don’t respond. Dating apps in general have made me quite depressed. My opinion ..... don’t bother with dating apps. Waste of time unless your a women.
windinmyhair
by Ma Codray on 2017/10/16 21:36
I’m surprised to see so many negative reviews and don’t recognise the criticisms that so many have made. I’m particularly surprised because it’s usually me that has problems when everyone else is singing an app’s praises I find the app easy to use and generally prefer it over my laptop. Unfortunately, I haven’t met that special person yet but even the best app in the world can’t organise that! If only it could.
Way too many emails and notifications
by ttbarnes on 2018/04/13 14:56
Since signing up I’ve been getting daily notifications (annoying) and also 2-3 emails per day. Unsubscribed from all. I haven’t even used the app properly yet. So much spam just from signing up, it’s very unnecessary. EDIT: after reading the other reviews I have now deleted the app. Seems you can’t do anything on the app without paying money - for example messaging people. It’d be cheaper to use Tinder which is also pretty frustrating. I think I’ll be giving up on these dating apps. Waste of my time and money!
It’s okay - could be better
by Jinxey91 on 2017/10/17 18:19
The application itself is okay, clean and easy to use. The daily notification at 07:30 is extremely annoying. I don’t need a constant reminder that there is new people on the site. I also hate the fact that if I do a location search I have to type in my home city every single time. Why can’t it remember it? As for the actual site, I signed up for a special offer because I was sick of useless free websites and thought I’d have more luck here. Wrong - I have nearly finished my six months membership (which I have taken off auto renew) and haven’t had a single date or found anyone who can exchange more than a few messages. There isn’t many people local to me, and those that are have either ignored my message or can’t hold a conversation. I won’t be renewing, Match offers nothing that a free site does not.
DO NOT JOIN!!!!
by cool sandbox x on 2018/03/26 20:32
When I first joined I read many reviews claiming that Match continued to take your money even when your subscription expired, this was apparently because of some ‘auto renewal’ small print in their terms & conditions. So in order to protect myself I specifically contacted Match upon joining and asked that they immediately cancel my auto renewal, they then emailed confirmation that my request had been granted. Imagine my anger when, 6 months later, I received an email confirming that they’d taken another £89!!!! I wish I’d listened to other people’s warnings, it’s been over 24 hours and still no response from Match.......
Do not download
by Cass8190 on 2018/12/04 18:05
Worst dating app experience and god help you if you want to unsubscribe or make a complaint about match...can only unsubscribe by doing the following ‘You can cancel your subscription renewal from the section "My account settings", any time from 24 hours after purchase until 48 hours before your subscription runs out.’ This doesn’t work so your only choice is them on their premium rate number between 9 and 5 Monday to Friday...come on get out of the Stone Age....I also want to complain about match and there is no clearly identifiable link on their website as to how to do this...absolute thieves
Sneaky money grabbing cheats
by Cytdyjkvxiucux on 2018/02/14 18:06
This company cheats you by offering you a £5 match subscription via iPhone and then signing you up via PayPal (which you can’t cancel through). Also when you cancel on the iPhone only the 1 month iPhone subscription is cancelled and the PayPal still active, then 1 month later they take your recurring subscription money. Also it is extremely difficult for you to contact them about it. Don’t let the nice advertisements and Martin Freeman fool you this is a conniving company who will try every trick in the book to get that extra months subscription money.
Tinder with a subscription
by 10bluebell on 2019/02/03 21:41
I’ve been on and off this site for a couple of years and found it good. It’s last big update has seen the app turn into a swipe right Tinder format. Your ability to Easily search or view local people on line has gone. You wake up to the excitement of the message 10 people have viewed your profile to find out none of them are local and most don’t match your profile. I set my preferences to within 20 miles of home, Tinder!, sorry match ignores to make it look like your profile is popular. Don’t waste your money.
Great App
by Magicberai on 2018/10/17 11:00
Great App and Website I had met the girl of my dreams on here! I got one free message and sent it to her and now six months down the line and we’re together and everything is going great! Would recommend Match! Only issue is now you don’t get a free message as my friend also tried this and didn’t even get the free message. For me this has worked thanks :)
It’s a joke!
by Olkikolki on 2018/08/22 15:35
I have been using this app for 6 months, even paid for the premium account.... and found a beautiful girl outside this app. It's a waste of time and money, the app is rubbish, once you wink someone, that wink disappears next day so you ending up doing it again like an idiot. People can't communicate with each other without paying for the account, so you ending up talking to the wall. And the last one, omg most of the girls looks like tramps with kids looking for idiots to pay for their mistakes. Don't waste your time, go out and look for that one girl that might change your life...
App doesn’t even work properly
by iconboy on 2018/01/30 09:16
Terrible site. This and so many other dating site don’t get their users properly. So many accounts on there dormant they should close accounts if they haven’t been used after 6 months to a year, but of course they won’t because they want you to think they have more users than they really do. Search function doesn’t work. Set the distance to 30 mile radius. Gave me people 100s of miles away every single time. Filters don’t work either. And they expect you to pay to subscribe to this kind of rubbish?
Shocking
by Starfox8699 on 2018/01/21 12:06
This app is terrible. My main disappointment with it comes from the fact that you can't see anyone who likes or favourites you unless you pay an absolute fortune up front to unlock the ability to see who likes or favourites you! I mean £60 for that "privilege" for a year is ridiculous! You should be able to see a certain number per day for free and then need to pay to see more, not pay straight away! The app is massively over priced to unlock the extra bits. Taking advantage of single people's inquisitiveness to make more money!
Simple and easy to use
by Face19882 on 2017/10/16 16:25
I’ve seen some of the other comments and generally I find the app useful. There are alerts on events nearby, notifications when someone has messaged and it was simple to fill out my profile. Having used other dating apps this one was one of my preferred.
Generally bad
by zootlewurdle on 2019/05/17 07:02
I see no way to unfavourite people. When you sign up you seem to start with a load automatically. Even those you favourited manually seem impossible to change. The most aggravating problem are the search results. They return inappropriate people. E.g., you’re one or two years outside the age range they’re looking for. What’s the point showing me that person? It’s wasting my time showing me them and had I not noticed it’d waste their time reading a message from me. Deleted my account and the app.
App should have features
by RodneyTrout on 2019/02/09 07:57
Why is the app so much less functional than the website. Simple things like being able to un-favourite someone or hide rather than block a profile should not be difficult to add to the app. I suspect that most people now use the app more than the website so Match please put more effort into the app. It would be good if profiles that have not been active for over three months are automatically hidden too.
Very very disappointing
by Kizzy bean soup on 2017/11/29 09:02
Match is not what it used to be. All sorts of silly technical problems that didn’t occur years ago. - I’ve put photos on. I can see them but they aren’t appearing on my profile anymore. They were for a few days and have now gone with no explanation. - 10 messages a day. This was not a feature years ago and means you have to be selective and in effect rude by not responding to everyone. Not good and I’m not happy with that as I wouldn’t have signed up if I’d known. - I’ve put descriptions under My Job And Dream Holiday and such using the App on a number of occasions and they keep disappearing - I’ve sent messages to customer services. You can’t choose what to send it’s all automated, doesn’t describe the problem and then won’t send. Really not worth your money. Try POF or Badoo. Free and much better functionality.
Waste of money, watch out for hidden extras in the contracts
by daniel.oldham on 2018/01/27 14:34
Having spent about 6 months on the app I would recommend not signing up to the app. Most people i spoke to on the app where not impressed with it. There are limited active meme era in your area. I’m in Nottingham and there were 5-10 active members in the area. Watch out if you do sign up. The read carefully the terms and conditions what you sign up to. A lot will auto subscribe you to longer terms and everything on the app is an upgrade at additional costs.
UNKNOWN ERROR
by WorkshyRene on 2017/10/23 19:05
I keep getting “Unknown Error Occurred” and the only way to get rid of it and be able to log back in is to delete the app and re-install it. But it only lasts a few minutes and i have to do it again! I’ve done it 3 times and I’m not doing it again until I see an update. Please sort this out. It’s annoying. I’ll have to stick to my laptop which is not convenient.
Don’t get this app!!! ❌❌❌❌❌
by sprt_dm on 2018/10/09 19:53
I have paid 6 months subscription through App Store , I couldn’t use the match services because they don’t active my account which I have paid for. I have called customer care services and they asked my to sent my payment evidence , I have send all the evidences requested and still can not use the services . This is a fraud app and I can not recommend it at all . Don’t even think to paid a penny for this !!!! I gave one star because otherwise I can not sent this review !!
Don’t subscribe
by London GP on 2018/03/05 23:52
Think really carefully about subscribing because you’ll be stuck and not be able to get a refund. The site is full of profiles that haven’t been looked at in months. You can block a profile but it still appears on your search results which is ridiculous. The mobile app is appalling - you enter your search criteria and it totally ignores them and just searches random profiles - the help assistant is also a complete waste of time - save your money and don’t bother
Don’t sell your self respect
by Fdjidjrn on 2018/12/13 22:02
I’ve been a “valued” member of match for some time, and have been fortunate enough to meet 3 lovely girls that didn’t share the same outlook on life with:(. However I must stress that I’ve sent numerous messages and received (at quite a delayed and somewhat similar) context of very similarly worded replies that i know were automated 😡( I applaud you match for your deceptive tactics). Please think before you give these con artists your money, they’ll simply emotionally blackmail you for cash in your pursuit for love. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Old grandads
by LauraAnneArt on 2019/05/22 08:04
Well. The app itself has a nice design and more modern. However, the people it matches you up with or people that are allowed to see your profile, either live too far away (despite setting an age/distance range), WAY too old for me at 24 and old enough to be my dad or too young. The people I have met on here have weird hang ups as well and are just downright strange. I don’t recommend for people who are young, I’d go elsewhere!! Avoid!
Not worth it
by Zaa Zehuti on 2019/01/14 14:56
Gentlemen, do you want to pay a ridiculous amount of money each month to be able to send messages to women that then reply with an automated template saying you aren’t good enough? Well this is the site for you! You will get hundreds of views and not a single message, and you’ll end up feeling depressed about the whole thing. To make matters worse Match will autorenew your membership as well if you aren’t careful

Don’t waste your money
by gfctibv on 2019/05/21 07:07
Photos come up terribly...so zoomed in that I’m basically a nose! Search criteria doesn’t work....shows me people hundreds of miles away even though my settings are 20. Online help doesn’t work. Match coach says she changes your criteria the continues to show you the same type of user! Don’t bother, pof is better and it’s free!
Very poor response to messages
by whelmic on 2019/05/19 12:30
I am fairly attractive, have a well written profile and have sent carefully worded messages linked to peoples profiles, yet out of over 100 messages sent I have only had 1 reply! I can only assume that the site is full of bots not real people.

Absolutely useless
by BrownEyes11 on 2019/05/15 09:43
If you want to chat with people on the site you have to make an account. They don’t offer you any trial to test the app out. You will get lots of fake likes and views when you are not subscribed; also messages from users that you can’t read. Also, if you are not subscribed users don’t know that you are not. Therefore if you don’t reply (you can’t unless you are subscribed!) they will think you are ignoring them. In addition, you get contacted by people all over the UK, even if you selected you are looking for people around your area. There is an option that supposedly would allow you to save a search, but this doesn’t work (May 2019). So every time you want to search for users you have to fill in the form with filters again. Also there isn’t a filter for diet. So say you only want to view vegetarians (vegans are not even on the list!) you can’t. Suggestions you get on the main page are rubbish. ‘Based on your favourites’ apparently. But no, nothing worth looking at. I regret subscribing; it’s expensive and you get very little interaction once you have paid, or you get people messaging and they are miles away so you couldn’t possibly date them on a weekly basis anyway. Match.com should offer a free trial, the possibility to send at least a few messages a day with users on a free subscription account. They shouldn’t have fake profile and send out fake views and fake favourites just to make you subscribe. I had over 1000 views within the first 24 hours of making an account, it made me think it was full of eligible bachelors-but as soon as I could view the likes and views, it went down to 100 a day. Generally speaking from a woman’s point of view men on this app are not very attractive and not very smart either. My advice? Ditch the app. Hop on meet up to meet people in person, in your area, with same interests, doing something fun, and without spending £10 per month!
Terrible !
by aceface83 on 2019/05/14 11:23
Why pay for this RUBBISH ? Plenty better apps than this with the same people like Bumble , it’s a total RIP OFF don’t bother !
Bad
by mshazmac on 2019/05/13 10:18
The service from Match seems to be getting worse. They constantly have the same people looking at your account which makes it look busy. Eventually these people are messaging you because they think your to shy to talk to them but you’ve never looked at their profile, so then you have to explain that it’s Match that does it. Also when I put someone as a favourite or wink most of the time it doesn’t go through and is also favouriting people I would never even consider due to age/location etc. Come on Match sort it out!
Money grabbing
by 13806875 on 2019/05/10 15:36
Let’s face it it’s just a cash cow . It amazing if you are a member you don’t get that many people to talk to but when your subscription runs out you get all kinds of attention 🤔🤔 also when you match with someone you still can’t talk to them without subscribing , so all they want is your money There is better apps out there peeps so use them
Not convinced
by SMiLEYSMiLE1966 on 2019/05/10 08:07
I’ve given so much money to match over the years looking for my ideal partner. I’m not convinced of its integrity to finding that special one. They are here to take your money only.
This app so buggy!!!
by KoEdo82 on 2019/05/09 15:18
...Sign up...subscribe...after that down frost the whole application...drop out a system...you can not log in again...money and time wasting!!!!!!!!
Just look at recent reviews
by apbm1 on 2019/05/09 05:17
Absolute garbage and non-existent customer support. You're better of with the free dating apps.
Absolute con, steer clear
by IdentityP45 on 2019/05/07 22:23
Match will entice you in with low rates only to fleece you later with full price once you’ve forgotten about your auto-renewal. If you do remember to cancel, match makes it as difficult as possible to do so. Cloaking your subscription cancellation at every turn. They are not to be trusted! The site, layout and messaging service really isn’t that great either. Not worth the money!
Free to look at profiles
by baldyhugs on 2019/05/03 11:54
You have to subscribe if you want to message anyone, can't see the point of the free service
They’ll steal your money
by Beakey0 on 2019/05/01 07:27
I tried this service and subscribed for what I thought was a fixed 6 month period. After that without reminder that my subscription was expiring match continued to charge me and gave no reminder/warning that my subscription was due, they just took the money without a word.
Save your money
by PencoedMum on 2019/04/30 16:01
This app is a complete waste of time. I cant get it to only show me new matches, I get messages saying X has viewed my profile and then hear nothing (thereby implying that they didn’t like what they saw) and 99% of the messages I do get from people I try to message are “Sorry, your invitation was declined” which is more soul destroying than if they’d just ignored me. Totally de-motivating. The details it asks you to fill out are stupid, like “what size are you looking for?” And then choose all from the list that apply. Why cant I just say “size doesnt matter”? I’d come off but Ive already paid upfront for 6 months. So instead I just get the endless X has viewed my profile emails. I presume there must be a way to turn these off but I cant find it.
Bs
by veryrub.com on 2019/04/21 21:02
This is a complete con. As with all dating apps, advertises as Free, but in order to view anyone who has shown an interest, you have to subscribe! Why send notifications telling me I have a message but charge £30 a month to view...?
Why did I bother subscribing
by spring0708 on 2019/04/20 19:21
Complete waste of money. I want a refund grrrrr no matter how many times I try & put the distance to 20 miles (I live in London) it keeps showing me guys from all over the UK. The rest of the search engine doesn’t work properly either. I specify what I am after & yet it shows me what I am not after. So annoying. Please don’t waste your money & time.
Don’t bother over priced says its free and it isn’t
by jimmychoo81 on 2019/04/14 17:14
Been on and off here few times it’s over priced what you get says it’s free and it isn’t
Not worth downloading
by pandyfandy on 2019/04/12 22:27
The app freezes, sends notifications but app doesn’t show them. I have to close it down every time before I use it. I rarely visit the site because of the poor app. It’s not easy to navigate and is better to visit the site on a lap top. Developers need to sort this out.
Dead app
by Pale shelter on 2019/04/12 16:17
As others below have said, this site is over. It's incredibly glitchy to use: over-priced: and difficult to cancel your subscription. The quality of matches is very low (I used this app a couple of years show and it was MUCH better). I guess everyone's gone onto other apps. The most interest I get now is from men old enough to be my dad! Good luck everyone.
One of the more decent sites but...
by Laur122 on 2019/04/12 09:01
Match in my view, is more user friendly than eHarmony but there’s too many fake matches. For example, if you click on a match that viewed you today, quite often they’ve not been on site for more than 3 months, or when you click a profile their physical preferences, hair, race etc is completely opposite to yours, or they have just one photo in their profile. The new ‘your profile is proving popular today...’ is also annoying. Before you’d get four notifications informing you that someone has viewed your profile. You still get the four same notifications plus the so called your profile is popular notification. Overall, a decent site so far - the site is better than the phone app.
Renewing
by Wastedeffort23 on 2019/04/10 21:15
Still yet you use this on your phone, but you cannot cancel. They want you to go to computer so they are trapping you into contract that will never end, unless you go to a computer. Poor app yet others allow you to use your mobile cancel so I’m still stuck in poor quality app. Shame on you to prey on people vulnerability 🤬🤬🤬
THEY WON'T DELETE FAKE PROFILES
by Buzzinfly on 2019/04/08 08:49
Waste of time and money. Don’t bother. Only get emails and “winks” when subscription runs out. Odd,that. Last subscription I made wouldn’t let me use paid for content. Finally got a refund from Apple,as match.com “support” said they couldn’t find my account details when I asked for it to be deleted after they had ignored my request for a refund. NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOG IN ON THE APP FOR A MONTH,SO BE WARNED IF YOU PAY FOR A SUBSCRIPTION YOU’LL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THE SO CALLED SPECIAL FEATURES ANYWAY,WHAT A SHAMEFUL RACKET. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT PAY FOR THIS APP AS YOU MAY END UP OUT OF POCKET LIKE ME. Priceless. Oh,sorry it’s not.
Don’t waste your money
by Stupidnicknameballs on 2019/04/03 09:50
This has to be the worst app I’ve used. I thought as Match are well established I could trust that the experience I received (for a £30 subscription plus extras) would be second to none. Wrong. The app itself is poor. Bad UI, intermittent notifications and a TERRIBLE boost system. Also, decent matches are slim pickings. Then, once someone likes/winks/favourites you, messaging them in nigh on impossible due to the fact the majority of users have free accounts and can’t view messages! I gave this a go because but keen on the shallow nature of apps like Tinder. However, Match is using the same swipe left/right mechanism themselves! With novelty rubbish thrown in for good measure. Just stick with Tinder and Bumble.
Problem on iPad.
by Davyayr on 2019/04/02 09:24
I use this app on my iPhone without any problem. On my iPad it’s a different story. When I go to type anything I can’t see the text so have hope it’s right. I can see the start on the words “Write a message” under the send button. Please fix.
Cannot write a message
by Swwitt on 2019/03/30 14:05
In the latest version 8.3.0 you cannot write a message on the app, it is just blank.
Corporate pigs
by mdt552 on 2019/03/29 22:55
So I’m 18, right? Looking for a nice girl haha! But the thing is, I’ve got 200 likes or whatever, but I can’t bloody see them without paying an extortionate amount of money!
No decent men
by no luck on here on 2019/03/28 19:55
No one around my age, all the men are desperate ugly or just plain simple, rubbish site
Hands down the buggiest app on the App Store!
by Glenbo on 2019/03/28 11:42
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve suddenly been jumped into another profile whilst reading the one I was interested in! Match simply doesn’t make any effort to get this right all they want is money! Their pick list contains people you’ve blocked or have blocked you! ABSOLUTELY hopeless! Appallingly bad! AVOID!
Disappointment
by whatiswrimgwithnicknameistaken on 2019/03/28 10:54
This app is a disappointment, freezes constantly not worth your money . More scammers and inappropriate members then on Tinder .
Problem with update
by Sandwarb18 on 2019/03/24 19:16
On my iPad with this new update, I can no longer type replies to conversations. Please fix!
Hideous
by Quijibo1993 on 2019/03/24 18:04
What on earth have you done to the messages feature? Why does it now show new messages as “chat requests” and why can’t I scroll through these new chat requests rather than viewing each one separately full screen? It’s absolutely impossible to use. Dreadful!
Problems loading app
by tbirdse25 on 2019/03/23 07:50
Was fine up until yesterday, now the app seems to get stuck on the loading page. Very frustrating!
Does anybody actually test these apps
by eggungsct6h55sv88 on 2019/03/22 21:21
There is always something that doesn’t work - this time have you tried to edit your details only if you don’t show the keyboard
Don’t waste your money
by yvie66 on 2019/03/16 19:08
I strongly believe now these sites are fixed. I have had one date since subscribing and another member also had the same experience. I was on zoosk and now I’m not a paid member I get a message every day trying to lure me back into handing over more money. Just a complete rip off and not easy to cancel as you can only do that 2 days before end of current subscription.
Don’t download
by Shaneyy1 on 2019/03/15 22:41
These guys must pay people for positive feedback. I understand having a subscription service but forcing you to pay £29.99 a month just so you can message someone is ridiculous...yes you heard me correctly, you can’t message matches or anything unless you subscribe. Sort it out.
Watch out
by rokkudan on 2019/03/15 11:59
Match will take money from your account whenever they feel like it apparently
App is pretty bad
by Miahannahbanana on 2019/03/10 09:15
The app is so buggy. I will get an email that I’ve received a message and then when I go into the app I have to refresh it a load of times and go in and out of the app before it appears. Then it will crash and go onto another part of the app. Sometimes will then have to repeat this process. I have the same problem on the mobile browser. Also, there doesn’t seem to be an option to unlike someone? It’s easily accidentally done that you like someone but if you don’t mean to I can’t see a way to change that. The distance is also incredibly inaccurate. I had someone from Paris and Dubai come up!! I get maybe they have to put others in outside of your distance if not enough people come up but surely I don’t have to travel to another continent! Also, even though I’ve turned notifications on the app, they don’t come up. Several people who I’ve spoken to on there say the same happens to them too. Hopefully these things get fixed so I can actually use the app properly.
Poor matching service
by Garden girl2 on 2019/03/09 08:56
No actual ‘matching’ logic and ignores your preferences when suggesting matches eg At 5’10’’ I’ve said looking for men 6ft and over... keeps recommending people under 5’9. No customer service support for issues. I tried using online contact and will not submit. If you cancel your renewal even with 2 months paid up front, this app does not show any new messages. It shows them in the count but not the actual message. You have to find the person from their user name in the email notification and click to message them... only then does their message show. Funny only happened when I cancelled the renewal. Awful dating site!
Terrible app and charged after deleting account
by RachC1993 on 2019/03/03 10:01
After following the steps to delete my account through the match.com app, it was not made clear that I would also need to unsubscribe through the Apple App Store to stop further fees being deducted. I have now been charged another £59.99 one month after deleting my account, and after researching it looks like there is no option to get this money back. Also, the app was terrible. I set my criteria and I still received messages from guys way out of my radius (including from other countries) and age range (had mine set 8 years older than me, but received messages from guys 40 years older). Such a waste of time and money. Just use the free apps like tinder and bumble which uses your set criteria only.
Matchless
by timbo333333 on 2019/02/26 01:20
Absolute bag of trash ....
Too complicated and self generated responses
by lotusman100 on 2019/02/22 22:51
The new discover view (default) users a tinder style swipe process. If the swipe right isn't reciprocated, it sends out an abrupt standard email and blocks you from further chat - all you did was ‘like’ the person ! There are more and more fake accounts. If you report them you get a standard response which use data protection as an excuse to do nothing about it. I will not be wasting any more money on this this app or Match. Avoid!
Don’t do it
by Jimmynopals on 2019/02/22 19:44
Pointless. Have more luck on tinder as a freebie. Tried this app due to the adverts etc. Signed up free like tinder and bumble. Within 2 days I’ve had 103 potential interests that want to meet but I can’t see them or message etc. That’s deliberate just to try and draw me in to subscribing and if I did they aren’t likely to materialise as legit interests. Preying on people looking for love 😊. Entertain this app at your peril .
Expensive
by Ry de ry on 2019/02/20 18:58
What can you actually do without a subscription ?!
Absolute rubbish
by Richard from Leeds on 2019/02/18 20:42
I’ve been a member of match for 3 years but this isn’t a review of the service, it’s a review of the new app and website. It’s utterly rubbish. So much so that I’m going to quit I think. I loved the old app where you could just see who was online in grid form and who’s around you in the same grid form. Not now oh no. No you have a ridiculous tinder style of yes or no to messages etc. You can’t even see who’s online without swiping yes or no to them. Gone are the old ways of doing things. The app doesn’t seem to know how many messages I’ve got either as I haven’t got any new ones but the app says I have 1. Also, rather than list them like any normal service, it asks me for a definitive “yes” or “no” as to whether I want to message them back? I don’t know whether these are new messages or old ones as there’s no date on them and they’re not listed on the list. Why oh why do people have to mess with things. Match have had £800 out of me since October 2015 but I’ve now had enough. A good service has turned to bad and I’m not going to pay good money for something that is rubbish to use.
Too much interference.
by username R on 2019/02/17 04:39
Match has a new policy of forcing traffic to see your profile, you’re not given a choice. So, you can’t tell anymore, on just who is interested or not. Just random people viewing, so you learn to ignore them and stop monitoring your own account, because it’s just a commercial idea on the part of Match.com that is annoying.
Rubbish
by Monkieyes on 2019/02/16 15:00
Seriously don’t waste your time or money.
No free trial
by TracyMuffi on 2019/02/14 09:21
Should be able to try for free! Don’t want to pay so much money for a service I’m unsure is right for me! Can’t send messages can’t read messages can’t do anything without paying through the nose!
Impossible
by Bazooka.Joe on 2019/02/11 08:09
I certainly don't have two heads but my experience of this site isn’t good. For example, this month I’ve sent 30 messages and received 29 of those standard match template rejection messages from women. This site is totally confidence destroying and all I have got out of it is serious doubts about how appealing I am to women. I cannot think why I should pay fir this. Update : another 10 messages sent today and another 10 automatic rejections. Update : another 5 messages sent, another 5 standard match rejections
Automated responses
by sunderlandgirl on 2019/02/10 18:59
Seriously guys add you to their favourites and wink at you constantly then you message them and they send an automated not interested response. Why waste my time then if your not interested! So many fakes expected so much more for a site you have to pay for!
App should have features
by RodneyTrout on 2019/02/09 07:57
Why is the app so much less functional than the website. Simple things like being able to un-favourite someone or hide rather than block a profile should not be difficult to add to the app. I suspect that most people now use the app more than the website so Match please put more effort into the app. It would be good if profiles that have not been active for over three months are automatically hidden too.
New update shocking
by Jiffy kid logo on 2019/02/08 17:42
New update makes it even worse than before. Have to go through a yes no or maybe just to read a message Someone has sent. Then if you don’t reply straight away-you have to go through the same process all over again just to get to it!!!!!! I just recently re-subscribed and can’t be bothered to go through all these messages with no idea when they were sent!!!! (There is no date) Can’t set any preferences for top picks of the day. Have had messages from as far away as Norway! Full of old profiles too..... and have to be very specific in what you put into search. Very frustrating. Won’t be renewing if it stays the same.
Rubbish two accounts created under same login details
by datemissing on 2019/02/06 21:58
Don’t waste time and money. This is painful! No reply from customer service You can not cancel directly through app or on mobile devices ( what century are they in) only able to cancel when you use a desktop!!
Not worth the cost
by Stavros the great on 2019/02/05 19:20
Pretty appalling app and company....you pay to download app and then you don’t get all the features and still have to keep buying top-up boosts. I regret signing up.
Crap!!
by MatthewFellowUK on 2019/02/05 10:35
What a load of crap!! You can’t do anything unless you UGRADE!! Want to open the app?! UPGRADE Want to take another breath? UPGRADE You can’t even send messages on the app unless you, UPGRADE Useless crap.
Useless place
by Mufasa8176 on 2019/02/04 02:43
Used to be just about ok .. now it turned to rubbish completely with this rejection system., Totally rubbish ., will not renew my subscription
Tinder with a subscription
by 10bluebell on 2019/02/03 21:41
I’ve been on and off this site for a couple of years and found it good. It’s last big update has seen the app turn into a swipe right Tinder format. Your ability to Easily search or view local people on line has gone. You wake up to the excitement of the message 10 people have viewed your profile to find out none of them are local and most don’t match your profile. I set my preferences to within 20 miles of home, Tinder!, sorry match ignores to make it look like your profile is popular. Don’t waste your money.
Bug
by En'so on 2019/02/03 11:28
Just wanted to alert you to a bug I’m having that wasn’t fixed in the last update. I keep getting visited by the same user. Yesterday it was 120+ times today is starting even worse. They have been blocked but still appear to have access to my profile. I don’t know who to contact in regards to stopping this fault. Please sort this ASAP
Pay to be hidden.
by devdubs on 2019/02/01 11:45
As a heterosexual male, once you’re a paid subscriber the views, winks etc suddenly plummet. To get the same visibility you then need to buy ‘boosts’ (which are capped at around 30 notifications). There’s also quite a few suspiciously fake profiles, and you unsurprisingly get more interest a week or two before the end of your subscription. Match are a great case study as to why the online dating industry needs regulating.
Absolutely rubbish don’t waste your money.
by Pika998 on 2019/01/31 16:28
So I decided to try this after getting a lovely message from a girl on here. So I sign up and pay the fee to rejoin and lo and behold no message, clearly it was just a tactic to get me to sign up again. The problem with apps like this although it has a great layout etc theirs loads of problems and bugs. Firstly like most dating apps it’s a double pay app so even though you paid once it asks you to pay more to be featured on everybody’s searches etc, and you can also boosts yourself and give digital gifts to people all at a cost so if your willing to pay more you get more while they laugh on their way to the bank with your money. Now on to the problems. Problem one the tinder part. Yes theirs a tinder part where you can swipe left or right but 90% of the girls in this part have not filled out their profiles so their not paying members so it’s pointless doing this. Second problem the search problem using the search menu your reminded that their laughing at you for paying for this again cause their is not an option to search for paying members meaning that although you can set it to search and it will bring up members you don’t know if their paying or not so if their not paying, so they can’t even read your message also if you live in London you probably get a lot more people but out here in Middlesbrough one person laugh all you can match you won’t be getting another penny out of me. you can also set it to search who’s online yet again you can’t set it to search for paying members so it’s pointless doing this. Third problem (yeah there’s more might as well complain on here) the coach yes apparently theirs a dating coach on this app a programmed cyber helper who is useless you apparently type in things and it’ll try and help you find profiles of girls, you if to be very per sliced or else you just get lead around in circles. The message problem wow girls are so savage no giving you a chance just shot you down straight away, excuse me this is a dating website not a reason to die Seriously you shouldn’t be able to shot people down with a message which wasn’t even written by you straight way I think I would rather just go back to being ignored. Also when messaging you can’t see if you already message them before so you could be wasting your time. Plus even if you pay unless you upgrade your only allowed 10 a day. Problem with help yes theirs help on how to write your profile etc or selling yourself problem is it says the bare minimum no what not to do or how not to do it, just be funny and your stuck thinking how is that helpful just be funny yeah that helps.
Don’t like the recent changes
by 357user468 on 2019/01/30 08:48
New main page is too time consuming, you have to now physically go in to each profile. The recent changes to the inbox features put you off initial messaging, getting no reply is one thing but a rejection message is worse! Who thought that up?!
Angry
by mae638394 on 2019/01/29 21:36
Match shouldn’t make you pay to see who likes you and wants to text you like that’s bull Tinder does not make you pay and that a really well known app for dating unlike this app and it’s making u pay rip off
Waste of time
by Ieu345 on 2019/01/29 11:42
What a waste of time and money this app is there is no one around you and when you put a search in it bring people up from bloody London which isn’t any help tinder and bumble are so much as I don’t like to admit plus they are so much cheaper it’s crazy £30 per month compared to £.
1
by daaahahaaha on 2019/01/28 09:35
If you want an old, fat, ugly, fake timing wasting profiles, or a slut with 12 kids, then this is the app for you 😂 Apprently it used to be good, 10 years ago 😆 So man up & go to a bar find a girl the real way.
LADIES PLEASE READ THIS...IMPORTANT
by Boomamaboo on 2019/01/24 10:11
Ok so I joined, paid my £30, started to get lots of messages, all good right? Wrong, In the 3 days I was using it I had endless fake profiles trying to obtain personal information from me, mobile numbers but especially after your email address. If you do engage in conversation with these people you can tell they’re not English by the language they use, how they say things, copy and pasted messages (which are usually duplicated). They tell you they need it as their subscription is about to lapse. The same photo ( of a very handsome man) will often be used on different accounts .... please please be aware of this, divulge personal info at your peril...... so ladies if it sounds too good to be true...it probably is!!
New interface is rubbish
by AcidTrest on 2019/01/23 18:50
Bring back the old discover interface. I know you want to get people showing on others profiles but this seems underhand on your part give us the option to look through without doing the tinder style yes or no lol
BE AWARE OF AUTO RENEWALS. No contactable customer service.
by Hughesie2012 on 2019/01/22 08:21
BE AWARE OF AUTO RENEWALS. This site will automatically renew your subscription and there is no easy way of getting in touch for a refund. They will block emails, phone calls and you will perpetually pay over and over for a service you may never wish to continue to use.
Garbage
by Poltice1984 on 2019/01/18 08:29
Absolutely garbage!! Can’t do anything at all without paying at least £60. Stick to tinder it’s far better
Aaah
by msnytttt on 2019/01/17 00:07
Frustrating this app is a waste of money and time, especially having to pay for it.. match you can do better
Renewal outta nowhere!
by Rszydlowski on 2019/01/15 18:58
I signed up for ‘1 month’ subscription and out of nowhere, with no warning about subscribing again, I’ve been charged £39.89! WTF?! Thanks for telling me Match! Other than being over charged, natch has been ok. A lot more maturer than tinder
Not worth it
by Zaa Zehuti on 2019/01/14 14:56
Gentlemen, do you want to pay a ridiculous amount of money each month to be able to send messages to women that then reply with an automated template saying you aren’t good enough? Well this is the site for you! You will get hundreds of views and not a single message, and you’ll end up feeling depressed about the whole thing. To make matters worse Match will autorenew your membership as well if you aren’t careful
Can’t use the site
by taylojo on 2019/01/09 22:07
Renewed subscription, funds cleared and paid 3 days ago , still can’t use the site . Asking me to subscribe each time I try to access my messages etc . Not happy , emailed Match waiting for a response.
Absolutely pointless
by Jimbob20142015 on 2019/01/08 23:09
Markets itself as a free service but other than creating a profile you cannot do anything at all without having to pay a substantial fee. It’s basically tinder but costs £30 per month. Baffles the mind, in a world of free dating apps this surely has its days numbered.
One star not two!
by bollieforme on 2019/01/06 00:29
Have installed the app cannot even get it to load the alphabet to type in my location! Have used match before as I believed the hype. Kind of pleased that I couldn’t get beyond screen one as a new user just shows how little it’s become user friendly! Really very poor Match get it sorted!
Got married
by Not working review on 2019/01/05 16:00
I met the man I married from this site .... keep looking folks it works!
Just a personal opinion but
by drugo2009 on 2019/01/04 23:36
This app is a waste of time and money. The only way to chat with someone is when both have a subscription, which is fair enough. The problem is there is no chance to know who have a subscription so you have to pay in order to message somebody m, hoping that the other one has payed as well or otherwise you’re just wasting your time, and your money.
Very poor experience
by The Unforgiven 666 on 2019/01/04 13:42
The app on the dating side is not great. However what most shocked me is the absence of compliance of this app and their marketing activities with data protection laws in Europe. I’ve opted out of all possible emails, and continue to receive marketing emails. That’s in breach of GDPR. Customer service is the least helpful and asks me to click on the « unsubscribe link » (not like I didn’t do that and it didn’t take me to the same screen that shows I’m opted out of everything and sent all screenshots to them). They continue to tell me to click on unsubscribe. I’ve rarely seen such poor customer service... and one that takes customers for idiots is a first. Run away from this app - they’re the worst. Not worth the money at all.
Can’t see messages
by lolz-123 on 2019/01/04 11:51
I’ve been using this app on and off for several years and the latest update is not good at all in respect that I can’t see new messages. It tells me I have a number of new messages but when I click the message icon there is only my read messages and no new ones. Unless there is another section of the app to view new messages there is an error in the new style app. It’s a bit pointless paying for a subscription to contact people if you can’t see who’s contacted you!! Will be giving the app another week or so before cancelling my subscription and deleting.
Appalling business practice
by Jayaki on 2018/12/27 23:37
I’ll start by saying that the app itself is pretty well structured and easy to use. However as a free user you’ll be completely restricted, which I guess is normal for these sort of apps. Now this is where they get you. The most popular subscription model is 6 months for 3x payments of £19.99 which again is pretty standard. Once you’ve subscribed your options for unsubscribing become very limited, you only get 24 hours to unsubscribe which will prevent any future payments coming out. After the 24 hours are up you’re locked into the full 6 months and the unsubscribe option will only become available again 48 hours before your next payment (in 6 months time) is due. Clearly this is put in place so customers will forget about it and it will auto-renew. Needless to say this is absolutely disgusting and borderline illegal. The reason for not being able to cancel before that time is due to “technical issues” ... sure it is. Frankly I feel that this business practice is extremely predatory and that Match has lost all of its integrity as a company. They will not be getting another penny from me. Appalling.
Don’t do it.
by lie locator on 2018/12/27 16:37
I would not go on here if my life depended on it! I signed up 8 years ago and after my subs ended few months later the money continued to come out of my account. I could not stop it or contact anyone. I was even denied renewed access and still am. I was livid. My e mail address is still ‘taken by another user’ as they say. That, being me! So a total mess.
Cost
by geordspark on 2018/12/26 10:01
To expensive for a dating app. Since i used this site three years ago it has doubled in price, used to be £15 a month and now is £30 a month. This app has cost me £90 and now I have stopped my subscription but still have the free profile which is just made me seem very arrogant and rude because I haven’t responded to any messages or can’t see any messages so what’s the point.
Pants
by Thribbly on 2018/12/26 08:03
Just signed up for a new subscription and already hugely disappointed by this app. Endless bugs telling me something has gone wrong, half of the pages don’t load first time or even third time round and then it crashes altogether. If you’re going to take such huge sums of money from people then SORT IT OUT Match as only a fully working, bug free app from such a large company is acceptable.
Latest version terrible
by Tom2345634 on 2018/12/23 18:07
Latest version is terrible. Replaced discover with a tinder like swipe system that shows a single picture and hardly any profile information. Pointless and just not right for match. If I want to swipe, I’d use tinder.
What have they done!?!?
by scotw on 2018/12/20 20:26
I really don’t like the new format of the discover page!!!! Please go back to the old format, you’ve basically copied OkCupid and it’s an awful format!!!
Very bad new interface
by bandit600 on 2018/12/20 18:47
Good example on how to do worst than before
New layout= awful
by Gav678378393 on 2018/12/17 23:09
The best thing about the previous versions was being able to browse photos, age and location of numerous woman on the ‘discover’ tab. Now that has changed and been replaced by a tinder based swipe system, where if I swipe right, they are automatically added to my favourites; bring back the old feature.
New update lost shuffle function
by R@¥M0ND0 on 2018/12/17 22:44
Why has the new update suddenly lost the shuffle function so now I can only search? Also I seem to be getting a lot of standard responses with just a slight variation.... seems automated to me 🤔🤔 Are these profiles legit?
Wtf is this?
by Silverballs77 on 2018/12/17 21:00
I think whoever has designed this app either is trying too hard to be different , or just a bit incompetent. The app is the least intuitive I’ve ever used. It’s a labyrinthine mess that leaves you confused and annoyed. You can’t find anyone local, and it chucks out suggestions for people that can be anywhere from 1 mile away, to 100 miles away. It’s also stuffed with fake profiles. Frankly you’d have more luck meeting someone walking around Tesco’s this evening
Save your money, don’t subscribe. This is a real review...
by SpecialDonut on 2018/12/16 10:29
I’ve never written a review for a App, it’s just not something I do, but I feel compelled to write this one. Match.com is littered with fake profiles. The quantity of profiles with fake images and the standard ‘automated’ replies and messages which are clearly generated by Match.com is frankly staggering. Whilst there are some genuine profiles, these are in the vast minority. March.com also make it very hard for you to leave too, so think twice about subscribing; there are other sites out there that I’m sure provide a better return. I’m sorry Match.com, but until you get your own house in order and police your own product, you will loose genuine people and your brand will suffer and your better managed competition will win.
Match
by mbytdyewhkl on 2018/12/15 21:41
How come messages are coming back the worded the same from different people , scam
Don’t sell your self respect
by Fdjidjrn on 2018/12/13 22:02
I’ve been a “valued” member of match for some time, and have been fortunate enough to meet 3 lovely girls that didn’t share the same outlook on life with:(. However I must stress that I’ve sent numerous messages and received (at quite a delayed and somewhat similar) context of very similarly worded replies that i know were automated 😡( I applaud you match for your deceptive tactics). Please think before you give these con artists your money, they’ll simply emotionally blackmail you for cash in your pursuit for love. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
It’s ok

Rubbish since the update
by KellyFels82 on 2018/12/09 10:37
I have had messages unread since the update that I’ve been unable to read! I have uninstalled, reinstalled and logged in desktop but to no avail! Sort it Match otherwise I will not be renewing
HATE the new system
by Trillian 46 on 2018/12/07 17:43
What’s with the ridiculous message view? Absolutely hate it. I want to see all messages thanks... not one at a time!
Utter Rubbish - Trash!!!
by JBondmyG on 2018/12/07 00:08
I am really baffled as to why this site even gets good ratings. I signed up for a month to give it a try and it was the most horrible mistake. Had mostly people 10/20 years older than me send creepy messages, despite stating the age range on my profile! The people on there don’t bother look at your profile and it’s shocking that Match.com can’t let you filter it age, distance, etc! This site didn’t do anything for me other than waste my money and time and highly advice people to not even bother joining!
Do not download
by Cass8190 on 2018/12/04 18:05
Worst dating app experience and god help you if you want to unsubscribe or make a complaint about match...can only unsubscribe by doing the following ‘You can cancel your subscription renewal from the section "My account settings", any time from 24 hours after purchase until 48 hours before your subscription runs out.’ This doesn’t work so your only choice is them on their premium rate number between 9 and 5 Monday to Friday...come on get out of the Stone Age....I also want to complain about match and there is no clearly identifiable link on their website as to how to do this...absolute thieves
What a waste of time
by FuZionz RAWR on 2018/12/04 08:15
Right so I’ve tried to put my snap and insta user in my bio so people can add me if they want to talk to me rather than having to match together first and the admins of the app just keep taking it down. And they show the people who are online and ready to chat they won’t let u talk to them and you need to pay to talk to the people who have subscribed to your account what a waste of timeeeee
Not bad but could be better!
by Zomow on 2017/10/16 18:23
Been on and off this dating site for a number of years now and only had 1 date, whether that’s due to lack of men my age group on the dating site or whether I’m pretty ugly, I don’t know! In terms of the app on the mobile, it’s not bad but could be made much better. It’s fairly user friendly and some nice features such as the shuffle, wink and being able to block or report unwelcome attention. The app could be made better by:- - Don’t like it if I tick someone in the shuffle that they end up in my favourites. - Allowing the user to edit any part of the text in the profile without having to delete parts so you read the end bit. - being able to delete searches saved - distance of a profiles being more accurate (several people live within 10 miles of me yet match states distance as 50 miles). - shuffle sometime has very limited number of profiles. - shuffle offers profiles that I don’t wish to be considered in my age group I.e. way too young or too old. - the cost of the app makes it expensive when you can only allow 10 messages per day. Sometime I don’t want to be rude so reply even if just to say not my type, but it’s used my allowance making me appear rude & ignorant if I don’t respond. - may not use any messages for several days but then may need more another day. -should be easier to cancel subscription. Ok, well I think I’ve covered everything. I shall live in hope at finding a date!
The best dating website, but expensive.
by Ross the photographer on 2017/10/16 16:31
I've used Match on and off a few times and tried a number of dating websites. Out of all of them, I feel I have the best chance of meeting someone on Match. This is mostly because it is well advertised and because it isn't free. Free websites attract all the wrong people and their users just don't take it seriously as a result. Not to mention endless fake profiles. The Match website, although an expensive service in my opinion, does appear to offer your best chance of meeting someone. It's pretty easy to use, but I don't think there are enough people on the site, though still more than other dating websites. If it was cheaper and more people used the site, it would get five stars from me. I do think Match should make it clearer that your subscription auto renews unless you cancel it a couple days before it renews. If you write a message to someone when using the phone app (iphone for me) make sure you write it outside of the Match app as when scrolling through a written message you write in the app, Match deletes it due to a bug. Write it outside of the Match app, then copy and paste it into the Match message window before sending.
Just ludicrous
by pixel.davey on 2018/01/26 17:05
I will give it 2 stars for functionality but that's about it. Think I used it for 2 days. I couldn't message anyone, when I received a message I couldn't read it. Couldn't wink at anyone either, all I could do was add to favourites, so for that one message I got and couldn't read, that may have been my true love will now be left to the ignorance of consumerism. Far too many rules and regulations with being a free non paying member. Seems like this dating business is a real money maker that I should invest in. I will not recommend any app or site that wishes to make an extortionate amount of money off lonely single, separated or widowed people, it's just infuriating. I have been on cheaper better sites long ago that I shall just take my chances with. Also you cannot deactivate your account unless you ring up someone in London at the cost of your phone bill. Says it all really.
DEAD APP - please read - Don’t even bother.
by Lee Carter on 2018/06/06 11:29
You are wasting your time if you get this app. first of all, to even message somebody, you have to subscribe by paying £30 a month, basically FORCING you to pay. This isn’t the worst part by the way. So by the time i paid for 1 month, i thought if i get a date or 2 then maybe its worth it. I would see myself as a decent looking man, i know where about my standards are. Let me add that I use TINDER & BUMBLE, i get a lot of matches and dates on there, so i know i can get interest from girls. Ive been on match for about 3 weeks, and guess what? Not one bit of interest, you know why? Cause the people that sign up use it for about a few days and leave their profiles open and never use it again, its full of useless dead profiles, i have message so many women around 30km from where i am, i think i have messaged about 200, at this point im absolutely desperate to get one match now. Heres something funny.... It gives you a feature that tells you who looks at your profile. Out of 200 girls, guess how many of them checked my profile after sending them a message?....... about 3!!!!! For the money i paid its an absolute disgrace. Until they make changes, this app will forever be DEAD. Dont waste your time, dont waste your money, check other dating sites out, you will not find love here.
What is the difference between this application and EA?
by catch(Exception e) on 2018/10/29 12:02
After using the app for awhile I have noticed it is potentially very good. However annoyingly you actually have to pay at least around £30 to see how has an interest in you, which would be one of the main features of this application and you have to pay an ludicrous amount of money to use it. Now I'm not a judge but I Think that paying £30 for a month or paying around £90 for 6 months. I can easily see the scale economy here, however that's a bit ridiculous. Check for a FULL YEAR membership in Xbox live or PlayStation plus is £40. Although I do you have an idea on how to make this app a tad bit better; Will be good to add these pointers that symbolise must haves? But of course I would recommend a limited amount of pointers.
One of the more decent sites but...
by Laur122 on 2019/04/12 09:01
Match in my view, is more user friendly than eHarmony but there’s too many fake matches. For example, if you click on a match that viewed you today, quite often they’ve not been on site for more than 3 months, or when you click a profile their physical preferences, hair, race etc is completely opposite to yours, or they have just one photo in their profile. The new ‘your profile is proving popular today...’ is also annoying. Before you’d get four notifications informing you that someone has viewed your profile. You still get the four same notifications plus the so called your profile is popular notification. Overall, a decent site so far - the site is better than the phone app.
Wishing I hadn’t subscribed
by snowy 12 on 2018/05/19 12:29
I’ve paid for 6 months subscription on the recommendation of an press article which said Match was one of the best dating sites for successful matches. However I am frustrated as the app says I have messages but I go to the emails and there are no new messages. Some profiles I suspect are old or redundant as the individuals never seem to be active. People have messaged me from 150 miles away and don’t seem to realise I’m that far away but I have entered my location. The email messaging in particular seems like I am wasting my time messaging people who are actually not paid up members (so they can’t reply) or are not active. I would like to know if someone is subscribed. On tinder you can tell who is a gold member. Overall totally underwhelmed. Fitness singles is better as is tinder and ok cupid.
Not worth it
by Specineff on 2018/03/19 23:19
Decided to take dive and shell out £30 for a month to see what, if anything, the experience is like. Yes you can pin point your types and that’s all good. It has all the features of all the other apps. But really the main thing I was looking for was less ghosting on conversations and more serious people. What I got was the same thing, but with the difference of most of the women i was being matched with were older despite filters being set. Match did nothing but the same but with the added BS of their match system, which frankly no one gives a crap about. Save your money folks. Match is not worth the fee to entry. You could get the same and cheaper experience with okc.
Worse compared to other apps
by Emiliya Ivanova on 2017/10/16 18:01
The technical part of the app for iOS is rather poor - it doesn’t have many core functions that the website has plus it freezes for no reason and you need to contact someone to change your current location, when trying to upload pictures from the app there is no way to exit this page, you need to close the whole app and reopen again to go back to the home page? The concept - I’d rather have my profile restricted for views and messaging only to the people who fall under the age bracket I’ve chosen, there are too many questions that people are usually asking anyway when they start a conversation
Pretty good but bit buggy
by Fezzilla on 2017/10/19 20:56
I really like the site and there’s a reasonable amount of fairly local women in my age group to potentially chat with. Its instinctive to use, and the shuffle feature is quite fun. My favourite things is quite a nice little addition to just the profile. It’s not 5 stars as I get false message notifications, and emails telling me I’ve had, like 7 messages or so, when actually I’ve had none. As an average looking bloke, I find I get maybe 1 response for every 10 I send, so it’s demoralising to get false message notifications. But overall, it’s a good app, a good product and yes, I have got dates!
App is pretty bad
by Miahannahbanana on 2019/03/10 09:15
The app is so buggy. I will get an email that I’ve received a message and then when I go into the app I have to refresh it a load of times and go in and out of the app before it appears. Then it will crash and go onto another part of the app. Sometimes will then have to repeat this process. I have the same problem on the mobile browser. Also, there doesn’t seem to be an option to unlike someone? It’s easily accidentally done that you like someone but if you don’t mean to I can’t see a way to change that. The distance is also incredibly inaccurate. I had someone from Paris and Dubai come up!! I get maybe they have to put others in outside of your distance if not enough people come up but surely I don’t have to travel to another continent! Also, even though I’ve turned notifications on the app, they don’t come up. Several people who I’ve spoken to on there say the same happens to them too. Hopefully these things get fixed so I can actually use the app properly.
I guess it might be better for a different age group
by Nowhere3456789 on 2018/06/20 21:12
I am 30 years old & joined match because I felt that the people on it would take finding a relationship seriously as you have to pay a high fee to join. Unlike the free sites. However once I paid the fee to join , I found that there weren’t any good matches for me, none of the matches were attractive, I searched quite far out of my area as well! I feel like I’ve wasted my money using this app. I will not be renewing my membership. It really is not worth the money at all! They should consider lowering the fees. I have stopped using it all together and I still have five months left of membership! What a disappointment & a complete waste of time & money.
Worst dating app ever.
by Londonista64 on 2018/10/12 14:51
Not only are my ‘matches’ incredibly low quality (far from the critical mass I thought would give me real choice) Match sets it up so if you join for 6 months you pay the lot in advance. Which is NOT clear. Then if you want to pause you still pay so the time you’re not on it is still on your bought time. AND they will auto bill and take payment for another subscription. You’ve no way to control who’s on your feed so will see the same faces. Again & again & again. Which means should anyone decent be on it it’s HIGHLY unlikely you will spot them amongst the dross. Even tinder is better and bumble is MUCH better. Oh and if you’re joining for events don’t bother unless you really want to learn how to make pizza.
Pay to be ignored
by Caaaarl! on 2018/10/10 19:26
I’ve tried a few online dating sites now with little success. I decided to try Match as in my mind I figured paying for the privilege would possibly prove that I’m genuine and that I’m looking for more than just ‘fun’. Unfortunately, I’ve just paid money to be ignored and made to feel pretty worthless if I’m honest. When paying for a boost to try and improve my chances, I get lots of views, but I suspect most of these profiles are fake. Apparently all of the ladies are chasing the same 10% of the guys. If, like me, you are not one of these lucky few blokes, I would strongly advise you to save your time and money. What I would like to see is a genuine dating site with ZERO fake profiles and a ban on clever camera angles and filters. Passport photos only!
Save your money
by PencoedMum on 2019/04/30 16:01
This app is a complete waste of time. I cant get it to only show me new matches, I get messages saying X has viewed my profile and then hear nothing (thereby implying that they didn’t like what they saw) and 99% of the messages I do get from people I try to message are “Sorry, your invitation was declined” which is more soul destroying than if they’d just ignored me. Totally de-motivating. The details it asks you to fill out are stupid, like “what size are you looking for?” And then choose all from the list that apply. Why cant I just say “size doesnt matter”? I’d come off but Ive already paid upfront for 6 months. So instead I just get the endless X has viewed my profile emails. I presume there must be a way to turn these off but I cant find it.
Absolute rubbish
by Richard from Leeds on 2019/02/18 20:42
I’ve been a member of match for 3 years but this isn’t a review of the service, it’s a review of the new app and website. It’s utterly rubbish. So much so that I’m going to quit I think. I loved the old app where you could just see who was online in grid form and who’s around you in the same grid form. Not now oh no. No you have a ridiculous tinder style of yes or no to messages etc. You can’t even see who’s online without swiping yes or no to them. Gone are the old ways of doing things. The app doesn’t seem to know how many messages I’ve got either as I haven’t got any new ones but the app says I have 1. Also, rather than list them like any normal service, it asks me for a definitive “yes” or “no” as to whether I want to message them back? I don’t know whether these are new messages or old ones as there’s no date on them and they’re not listed on the list. Why oh why do people have to mess with things. Match have had £800 out of me since October 2015 but I’ve now had enough. A good service has turned to bad and I’m not going to pay good money for something that is rubbish to use.
Very poor experience
by The Unforgiven 666 on 2019/01/04 13:42
The app on the dating side is not great. However what most shocked me is the absence of compliance of this app and their marketing activities with data protection laws in Europe. I’ve opted out of all possible emails, and continue to receive marketing emails. That’s in breach of GDPR. Customer service is the least helpful and asks me to click on the « unsubscribe link » (not like I didn’t do that and it didn’t take me to the same screen that shows I’m opted out of everything and sent all screenshots to them). They continue to tell me to click on unsubscribe. I’ve rarely seen such poor customer service... and one that takes customers for idiots is a first. Run away from this app - they’re the worst. Not worth the money at all.
Not A 5 Star Match
by 2$s on 2018/05/06 07:10
I picked Match because I thought it was the best dating site but I’ve been shocked at how bad it is. I filled out all the questions under the impression that it would refine my experience, sadly it doesn’t. I’m shown profiles from up and down the country and my profile is shown to people 20 years out of the range I asked for. Every time I get a message it says “Could this be the first in a long line?” even though it isn’t our first message. I paid a lot of money but still the number of profiles I can view is limited. I did the Trinder style swiping section assuming it would allow the app to learn my type, it doesn’t. If this is the best then Cupid has a better chance. Did I mention how expensive it is?
Poor matching service
by Garden girl2 on 2019/03/09 08:56
No actual ‘matching’ logic and ignores your preferences when suggesting matches eg At 5’10’’ I’ve said looking for men 6ft and over... keeps recommending people under 5’9. No customer service support for issues. I tried using online contact and will not submit. If you cancel your renewal even with 2 months paid up front, this app does not show any new messages. It shows them in the count but not the actual message. You have to find the person from their user name in the email notification and click to message them... only then does their message show. Funny only happened when I cancelled the renewal. Awful dating site!
LADIES PLEASE READ THIS...IMPORTANT
by Boomamaboo on 2019/01/24 10:11
Ok so I joined, paid my £30, started to get lots of messages, all good right? Wrong, In the 3 days I was using it I had endless fake profiles trying to obtain personal information from me, mobile numbers but especially after your email address. If you do engage in conversation with these people you can tell they’re not English by the language they use, how they say things, copy and pasted messages (which are usually duplicated). They tell you they need it as their subscription is about to lapse. The same photo ( of a very handsome man) will often be used on different accounts .... please please be aware of this, divulge personal info at your peril...... so ladies if it sounds too good to be true...it probably is!!
Unsafe for women
by Take90 on 2019/05/21 10:06
I am a woman using the app in London. I constantly get bombarded with messages from men abroad, many of these profiles look like complete scam. There’s also ton of notifications about views that I don’t care about. There is absolutely no filter to receive messages from UK only or from a certain age group. The privacy options even after paying a hefty subscription fee are a joke! Also why do I need to pay £10 per month extra just to be able to hide my profile? I just want to have meaningful conversations with people I connect with and don’t want to be bombarded with messages from scammers. This app is definitely not for young women and I can see why Bumble is now more popular.
Not very good if not subscribed
by kirsty2678836 on 2018/08/16 08:33
So far not had a very good experience as am unable to see most messages as it just says the name is ‘someone’ and doesn’t allow me to even read the message. I am also unable to see my matches, who liked my profile or if I am in someones favourites but I still get the notifications that I am but am unable to see who or do anything about it or without having a subscription. Members who do not subscribe should still be able to do these things without having to pay. Also I am still getting shown profiles and gettting messages from older men such as with a 10 to 40 year age differences which is not in the ages I selected that I would prefer.
So unreliable
by Tiktakpom000000 on 2017/12/03 23:14
Notifications only work half the time and even then, if it says I've got one message the little icon will show a random ridiculous number like 7. I sometimes read a message but the number of messages will still show as if message wasn't read. Once you have a few discussions the bottom ones get stuck and you can scroll down to click on them. I updated my descrption on desktop website and the old version is still showing in the app. Way too easy to click on a person's profile instead of on the message received which makes me look like a stalker. Poor.
Can’t see messages
by lolz-123 on 2019/01/04 11:51
I’ve been using this app on and off for several years and the latest update is not good at all in respect that I can’t see new messages. It tells me I have a number of new messages but when I click the message icon there is only my read messages and no new ones. Unless there is another section of the app to view new messages there is an error in the new style app. It’s a bit pointless paying for a subscription to contact people if you can’t see who’s contacted you!! Will be giving the app another week or so before cancelling my subscription and deleting.
I wanted to give this zero stars!
by Andyo10 on 2018/03/17 22:14
Seen this advertised and thought it would be good. I didn't always receive messages until many days or a week/s after they had initially sent it. My subscription expired and I received loads of messages from people I had messaged weeks and even months previously, thinking that they weren't interested. As my account had expired I couldn't reply to any of them and my only option would be to re-subscribe, which I definitely will not be doing. Personally would say to avoid using this site and wasting money on something when you don't even get the full service you are paying for!
Could be better
by Lou Everton on 2017/12/19 07:43
I have used this app on and off for a year and it could be so much better! Many improvements have been made but the notifications are out of sync with real time, e.g. message notifications pop up and badge icons appear but there are no messages, i have to wait 24 hrs sometimes to read the message - I feel like men are waiting for my response, they can see me online and are thinking I’m ignoring them! So annoying! So I uninstall and reinstall regularly.... come on Match! You can do better than this!
The app itself very good 👍🏻best Iv been on

The app itself is the best dating app I’ve been on out of the 5-6 Iv used. But sadly Iv had no joy with it as it’s always down to the women if they message you or not. Must have send 100+ messages to people and you can see they have viewed your profile but they don’t respond. Dating apps in general have made me quite depressed. My opinion ..... don’t bother with dating apps. Waste of time unless your a women.

I’m surprised to see so many negative reviews and don’t recognise the criticisms that so many have made. I’m particularly surprised because it’s usually me that has problems when everyone else is singing an app’s praises I find the app easy to use and generally prefer it over my laptop. Unfortunately, I haven’t met that special person yet but even the best app in the world can’t organise that! If only it could.
Way too many emails and notifications
by ttbarnes on 2018/04/13 14:56
Since signing up I’ve been getting daily notifications (annoying) and also 2-3 emails per day. Unsubscribed from all. I haven’t even used the app properly yet. So much spam just from signing up, it’s very unnecessary. EDIT: after reading the other reviews I have now deleted the app. Seems you can’t do anything on the app without paying money - for example messaging people. It’d be cheaper to use Tinder which is also pretty frustrating. I think I’ll be giving up on these dating apps. Waste of my time and money!
It’s okay - could be better
by Jinxey91 on 2017/10/17 18:19
The application itself is okay, clean and easy to use. The daily notification at 07:30 is extremely annoying. I don’t need a constant reminder that there is new people on the site. I also hate the fact that if I do a location search I have to type in my home city every single time. Why can’t it remember it? As for the actual site, I signed up for a special offer because I was sick of useless free websites and thought I’d have more luck here. Wrong - I have nearly finished my six months membership (which I have taken off auto renew) and haven’t had a single date or found anyone who can exchange more than a few messages. There isn’t many people local to me, and those that are have either ignored my message or can’t hold a conversation. I won’t be renewing, Match offers nothing that a free site does not.
DO NOT JOIN!!!!
by cool sandbox x on 2018/03/26 20:32
When I first joined I read many reviews claiming that Match continued to take your money even when your subscription expired, this was apparently because of some ‘auto renewal’ small print in their terms & conditions. So in order to protect myself I specifically contacted Match upon joining and asked that they immediately cancel my auto renewal, they then emailed confirmation that my request had been granted. Imagine my anger when, 6 months later, I received an email confirming that they’d taken another £89!!!! I wish I’d listened to other people’s warnings, it’s been over 24 hours and still no response from Match.......
Do not download
by Cass8190 on 2018/12/04 18:05
Worst dating app experience and god help you if you want to unsubscribe or make a complaint about match...can only unsubscribe by doing the following ‘You can cancel your subscription renewal from the section "My account settings", any time from 24 hours after purchase until 48 hours before your subscription runs out.’ This doesn’t work so your only choice is them on their premium rate number between 9 and 5 Monday to Friday...come on get out of the Stone Age....I also want to complain about match and there is no clearly identifiable link on their website as to how to do this...absolute thieves
Sneaky money grabbing cheats
by Cytdyjkvxiucux on 2018/02/14 18:06
This company cheats you by offering you a £5 match subscription via iPhone and then signing you up via PayPal (which you can’t cancel through). Also when you cancel on the iPhone only the 1 month iPhone subscription is cancelled and the PayPal still active, then 1 month later they take your recurring subscription money. Also it is extremely difficult for you to contact them about it. Don’t let the nice advertisements and Martin Freeman fool you this is a conniving company who will try every trick in the book to get that extra months subscription money.
Tinder with a subscription
by 10bluebell on 2019/02/03 21:41
I’ve been on and off this site for a couple of years and found it good. It’s last big update has seen the app turn into a swipe right Tinder format. Your ability to Easily search or view local people on line has gone. You wake up to the excitement of the message 10 people have viewed your profile to find out none of them are local and most don’t match your profile. I set my preferences to within 20 miles of home, Tinder!, sorry match ignores to make it look like your profile is popular. Don’t waste your money.
Great App
by Magicberai on 2018/10/17 11:00
Great App and Website I had met the girl of my dreams on here! I got one free message and sent it to her and now six months down the line and we’re together and everything is going great! Would recommend Match! Only issue is now you don’t get a free message as my friend also tried this and didn’t even get the free message. For me this has worked thanks :)
It’s a joke!
by Olkikolki on 2018/08/22 15:35
I have been using this app for 6 months, even paid for the premium account.... and found a beautiful girl outside this app. It's a waste of time and money, the app is rubbish, once you wink someone, that wink disappears next day so you ending up doing it again like an idiot. People can't communicate with each other without paying for the account, so you ending up talking to the wall. And the last one, omg most of the girls looks like tramps with kids looking for idiots to pay for their mistakes. Don't waste your time, go out and look for that one girl that might change your life...
App doesn’t even work properly
by iconboy on 2018/01/30 09:16
Terrible site. This and so many other dating site don’t get their users properly. So many accounts on there dormant they should close accounts if they haven’t been used after 6 months to a year, but of course they won’t because they want you to think they have more users than they really do. Search function doesn’t work. Set the distance to 30 mile radius. Gave me people 100s of miles away every single time. Filters don’t work either. And they expect you to pay to subscribe to this kind of rubbish?
Shocking
by Starfox8699 on 2018/01/21 12:06
This app is terrible. My main disappointment with it comes from the fact that you can't see anyone who likes or favourites you unless you pay an absolute fortune up front to unlock the ability to see who likes or favourites you! I mean £60 for that "privilege" for a year is ridiculous! You should be able to see a certain number per day for free and then need to pay to see more, not pay straight away! The app is massively over priced to unlock the extra bits. Taking advantage of single people's inquisitiveness to make more money!
Simple and easy to use
by Face19882 on 2017/10/16 16:25
I’ve seen some of the other comments and generally I find the app useful. There are alerts on events nearby, notifications when someone has messaged and it was simple to fill out my profile. Having used other dating apps this one was one of my preferred.
Generally bad
by zootlewurdle on 2019/05/17 07:02
I see no way to unfavourite people. When you sign up you seem to start with a load automatically. Even those you favourited manually seem impossible to change. The most aggravating problem are the search results. They return inappropriate people. E.g., you’re one or two years outside the age range they’re looking for. What’s the point showing me that person? It’s wasting my time showing me them and had I not noticed it’d waste their time reading a message from me. Deleted my account and the app.
App should have features
by RodneyTrout on 2019/02/09 07:57
Why is the app so much less functional than the website. Simple things like being able to un-favourite someone or hide rather than block a profile should not be difficult to add to the app. I suspect that most people now use the app more than the website so Match please put more effort into the app. It would be good if profiles that have not been active for over three months are automatically hidden too.
Very very disappointing
by Kizzy bean soup on 2017/11/29 09:02
Match is not what it used to be. All sorts of silly technical problems that didn’t occur years ago. - I’ve put photos on. I can see them but they aren’t appearing on my profile anymore. They were for a few days and have now gone with no explanation. - 10 messages a day. This was not a feature years ago and means you have to be selective and in effect rude by not responding to everyone. Not good and I’m not happy with that as I wouldn’t have signed up if I’d known. - I’ve put descriptions under My Job And Dream Holiday and such using the App on a number of occasions and they keep disappearing - I’ve sent messages to customer services. You can’t choose what to send it’s all automated, doesn’t describe the problem and then won’t send. Really not worth your money. Try POF or Badoo. Free and much better functionality.
Waste of money, watch out for hidden extras in the contracts
by daniel.oldham on 2018/01/27 14:34
Having spent about 6 months on the app I would recommend not signing up to the app. Most people i spoke to on the app where not impressed with it. There are limited active meme era in your area. I’m in Nottingham and there were 5-10 active members in the area. Watch out if you do sign up. The read carefully the terms and conditions what you sign up to. A lot will auto subscribe you to longer terms and everything on the app is an upgrade at additional costs.
UNKNOWN ERROR
by WorkshyRene on 2017/10/23 19:05
I keep getting “Unknown Error Occurred” and the only way to get rid of it and be able to log back in is to delete the app and re-install it. But it only lasts a few minutes and i have to do it again! I’ve done it 3 times and I’m not doing it again until I see an update. Please sort this out. It’s annoying. I’ll have to stick to my laptop which is not convenient.
Don’t get this app!!! ❌❌❌❌❌
by sprt_dm on 2018/10/09 19:53
I have paid 6 months subscription through App Store , I couldn’t use the match services because they don’t active my account which I have paid for. I have called customer care services and they asked my to sent my payment evidence , I have send all the evidences requested and still can not use the services . This is a fraud app and I can not recommend it at all . Don’t even think to paid a penny for this !!!! I gave one star because otherwise I can not sent this review !!
Don’t subscribe
by London GP on 2018/03/05 23:52
Think really carefully about subscribing because you’ll be stuck and not be able to get a refund. The site is full of profiles that haven’t been looked at in months. You can block a profile but it still appears on your search results which is ridiculous. The mobile app is appalling - you enter your search criteria and it totally ignores them and just searches random profiles - the help assistant is also a complete waste of time - save your money and don’t bother
Don’t sell your self respect
by Fdjidjrn on 2018/12/13 22:02
I’ve been a “valued” member of match for some time, and have been fortunate enough to meet 3 lovely girls that didn’t share the same outlook on life with:(. However I must stress that I’ve sent numerous messages and received (at quite a delayed and somewhat similar) context of very similarly worded replies that i know were automated 😡( I applaud you match for your deceptive tactics). Please think before you give these con artists your money, they’ll simply emotionally blackmail you for cash in your pursuit for love. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Old grandads
by LauraAnneArt on 2019/05/22 08:04
Well. The app itself has a nice design and more modern. However, the people it matches you up with or people that are allowed to see your profile, either live too far away (despite setting an age/distance range), WAY too old for me at 24 and old enough to be my dad or too young. The people I have met on here have weird hang ups as well and are just downright strange. I don’t recommend for people who are young, I’d go elsewhere!! Avoid!
Not worth it
by Zaa Zehuti on 2019/01/14 14:56
Gentlemen, do you want to pay a ridiculous amount of money each month to be able to send messages to women that then reply with an automated template saying you aren’t good enough? Well this is the site for you! You will get hundreds of views and not a single message, and you’ll end up feeling depressed about the whole thing. To make matters worse Match will autorenew your membership as well if you aren’t careful
