Match.com is a very established and technically solid online dating site with a huge amount of members. But having such a large user base comes with problems. If there are 1000 men per woman, you can think for yourself how difficult it is to find a meaningful connection.
This may be the reason why match.com is requiring that members pay for a subscription before they can use the site in any meaningful way, and that they still can’t communicate with non paying members.
But it is not working as intended, in our opinion. If you get a trial period with all functions available, it would be a different story, but here you have to pay before getting to test the site fully.
The incentives is also high for buying a subscription for several months, since it is cheaper. This leads users to buy a product they may not want after testing it, and ends up with spamming other members to get more value for their money, which is a very bad thing for a dating site.
These main reasons are why we would recommend other dating sites, like Lust18.club or Flirtila.com.
