Borderline Scam 1/5
By A reveiw10124111
So this app is borderline a scam. I had a very poor experience using it for 2 months. They force auto renewal unless you cancel it, which they made it very difficult to figure out how to cancel (it's not in the app but on the website).
Every time my subscription expired, I received tons of emails saying I had new matches with new messages sent to me. They are not real, as soon as you pay I didn't see any of these matches or messages.
Most profiles are no longer active and or possibly made up, so active member count was very low. I don't recommend to anyone, your better off trying something else like tinder or just being more open around people you come across. It makes me sick to see this company take advantage of lonely people like my self. Their motive of money is very clear in the app setup.
This is ridiculous 1/5
I can’t seem to log in on the app. The web version works well but the app keeps timing me out and doesn’t log in!!!
I hate this
Makes you pay to see messages from folx, doesn't have a "bisexual" option (to see both binary genders), doesn't have an option to list as a gender besides male/female (feels exorsexist to me), and costs way too much for this "privilege" of being on their site. Thanks a lot.
Also, WAY WAY WAY too many f’n emails. There seems to be no way to turn them off, either. If I’d known what disaster I was getting myself into, I wouldn’t have downloaded it at all.
Trying to cancel membership through iTunes 1/5
I can’t find where to cancel my membership through iTunes. This is very frustrating.
Don't bother. Match is PREDUDICE . 1/5
They take your money and delete your account and don't tell you why. Just because you're white. Match doesn't like white males.
Not a fair site.
Waste money. 1/5
When I downloaded this app, I thought it would be different from other apps. However, this app is even worse than other apps.
First, I was located on east coast by this app even though I live in west. And it was impossible to change the location. So this app become useless to me.
Second, I used this app with my iPhone. But the same account doesn’t related to the app on iPad and website Match.com. Which means if I want to use on my iPad or website, I have to pay again.
Third, I tried to cancel the purchase, but there is no way to cancel, and it would keep charging my account. That is the worst app I have ever used.
Don’t use it. Just waste your money and time.
Remember to unsubscribe in setting!! 1/5
The app took 70+USD twice just because i didn't unsubscribe. My friend had the same issue.i want to say to match.com please think if you worth the amount of your customers payment. Nobody s money comes without effort. Your price is high while you don't think from customers side.
IT IS DEFINITELY A TRAP 5/5
I’m currently having the same problem with not being able to cancel my subscription. The app continues to send me in different directions as to how to cancel without there ever actually being a way to do so. Save your money. Do not subscribe to Match at all.
Too controlled-Disappointed 1/5
Too controlled and too expensive. You shouldn’t have to pay extra to be recognized. There are too many people without actual profiles or photos and should not be allowed. It takes up from ones who are genuinely looking. Also, what’s the point of putting parameters in your profile of what you’re looking for, just to be sent matches of what I’m NOT looking for and clog up your inbox of messages from men that could be your dad or grandfather. It’s disgusting. This system needs some work.
What a racket 1/5
Two big thumbs down. I feel like I need a shower after I paid. It was misleading and deliberately difficult to find how to cancel and get your money back and I was only five minutes into my recognizing I did not buy what I thought I was buying. I wish I could take a snapshot of the page. I only wanted to try to see if it was worth using. It’s definitely not worth it. I feel swindled and was.
This is a trap, online dating never works, etc.
Match.com just takes your money, recommends profiles of shallow girls who are only looking for Ryan Gosling or some rich sugar daddy. They have zero interest in actually finding a soul mate. They are shallow and never reply.
Hated it 1/5
This is a waste of time and money. Take my advice and don’t waste your time and money on this.
How much does it cost if you sign up for the 3 month package? Do they just take it out of your bank account every month?
No one online 1/5
There isn’t anyone in my area that is online or active on their profile
I subscribed to match for one month. During my time I had a bit of luck and even went on a few dates. Ultimately though, the experience with match was poor. The service seems very misleading, and I question how many profiles are of real, active users. I went 2 weeks out of my month subscription with zero notifications or replies. I didn’t auto renew my subscription, and literally the DAY my subscription expired I received 10 new notifications stating that someone liked or viewed my profile. Regardless I didn’t renew until almost a month later. Excited to see the new matches or potential matches, I signed in. To my displeasure the NEW notifications I received were actually notifications for profile views and likes I had ALREADY GOTTEN during my first initial subscription. Match seemingly deliberately mislead me into thinking my new notifications were from new interactions when they were actually from things I’ve seen before. WATCH OUT.
Poor relationship connection 1/5
By Dd- paradise
Match keep showing guys that not in my requirements such older guys, guys that have children, guys who don’t meet age requirements, over weight guys and guys of a type of race that I’m not interested in. I personally don’t think any of these guys on match are looking for serious relationship looking for a good time which sex.. not a good investment
Great 6 pm reminder 4/5
This is the best app to be reminded when 6 pm hits
I want to delete this app
Crappy design. 1/5
It really isn’t worth the amount you pay per month. They promise a lot, but deliver on absolutely nothing. Their matching algorithm is a joke. If you want an online dating platform that has a legitimate algorithm, go with ok Cupid. They at least ask you personally questions in order to attempt to match you with people. Match just picks random users without any rhyme or reason.
What the hell 1/5
By April Paw
Why there’s no handsome guy and did your company take my money?? And there no guys that are attractive send me back my money for 1 month and for 1 month how many money? I want you guys to send me people from far away.
Awful. Don’t waste your time on this scam 1/5
I just submitted a claim to PayPal to refund me on this scam. Here is the claim that was sent:
I want my money back for this scam. You’re taking people’s money for absolutely nothing, a promise of finding someone. The site is filled with fake and inactive profiles. You send a message to someone and they don’t answer back, they say you’ve matched with people, so you contact them and hear nothing, I at least expect to get an “I’m not interested “ in return. This site and everything they tout is a big fat lie. You can tell the fake profiles by the canned descriptions they give in their profiles. As a 10+ plus customer of PayPal I think you should stop doing business with match.com and the scam they run. They can come back and say but we have stats to prove. Well throw enough crap at the wall and it will stick. All in all you should be refunding me in full, I will be doing nothing but talking bad about this company.
I don’t need a developer response, you guys are crap, plain and simple.
If you’re a guy worth your salt, just save your money and time. 1/5
I think this is just a problem in general with dating apps but this one takes the cake. I can think of several other things I could have spent my $80.00 on than this app. This app seems to be full of nothing but fake profiles, self entitled single moms and younger obnoxious capricious little girls, all jocking for that top tier shelf of men. Which is great if you’re 6’6” and cut abs, hey, not gonna hate if that’s what you’ve got going for you. But for the regular joe, the trash pile of choices on this app is delusional and out of touch with what they think they bring to the table. Out of sheer curiosity, I wondered through male profiles to see what women were “bombarded” with and boy... then it hit me. If I wouldn’t go to the crappy side of town, in the worst played out club around that is full of d-bags, to meet someone in real life, why in the F would I shell out my money to replicate that experience online?! It really is that simple.
Canceling the auto-renew does not work 2/5
I followed the Match instructions to cancel the auto-renew but they renewed my membership anyway and charged my CC. I just emailed them so I’ll see if I get a response and get my $ back. I’ll update this review, either way, with the results.
The app is okay but I only met 1 person in-person, and had email responses from a couple. That was it. Not sure if people aren’t using it anymore and just leaving their profiles up or if the profiles are actually real at all. Or maybe it’s just me. :-)
Spam and annoying 1/5
Was going to try them out, but they seem to like to spam your email. They don’t make it easy to turn off email notifications through the app, also still sends you emails even after turning it off and unsubscribing, I was getting 4-5 a day after all that and decided to delete it, I’m sure they’ll keep annoying me even after deleting
March needs to be inclusive of Bisexuals 4/5
I’m bisexual /pansexual and I’m sick of paying Latch, which is overall a really good site, all this lonely and not being able to search for and chat with men and women at once. This is 2018 and we have 60+ years of research backing up Kinsey’s theory that 80% of people are bisexual in attraction, if not action. There is a need for this, why is Match refusing to meet that need and doubling down on a false binary?
Worst dating app 1/5
What's the point for showing prospect who has smart filter on. We spend hundreds of dollar and not a single reply from 200 prospect we email to. Your app shows them available from the location I am at but I can't get a reply back cause prospect has smart filter on who wants message from 10 miles radius. Your app needs to improve stop taking my money. When I didn't have subscription to your app I got 30-40 email when I join all those profile are suddenly disappeared and emails really shrunk to 1. How can I get refund?
Seriously I paid for match on accident for the second time...after I cancelled my membership. The app works, at best, once a month. I don’t want this anymore and I’m afraid I can’t cancel it. I’m thankful I moved and had to get new cards so my membership can’t renew in its own, even after cancellation.
My review 4/5
By Smoking gun 456
Very user friendly
SCAM!!!! Don’t download! 1/5
Can’t delete my subscription! Such a scam. Don’t add this app! Just a HEADACHE!!! Ugh!!!
Pay for love 1/5
I’m not looking to pay any money to just message a girl. At least with Tinder and Bumble, you can actually message these girls instead of paying a membership.
Waste of Money 2/5
They’re advertising says they have better matches - insert Kelly Kapoor shaking her head. People are all the same no matter which app you use. This is just another app that makes you pay for simple features. The missed connections feature is just creepy. I don’t need strangers knowing which streets I’m on/near. You can turn this feature off, but that takes me to their blocking feature- they basically don’t have one. You can block someone, but all it does is stop their messages from getting to you. They can still see your profile and you’re stuck still seeing theirs. If you delete a profile again they can still see yours. Now let’s get to the main problem- the problem the app is created to fix: matching. I don’t even bother going through the daily matches they provide. You’re never matched with someone with similar preferences. For example: A match could prefer an athletic person and my profile specifically states my body is not. Maybe if you pay more you get more, but after wasting $60 I’ll pass. OkCupid matches you better with others that are actually within the distance you set- and that’s their free version. Overall these apps just prove dating is bs and all they’re doing is capitalizing on it. Those who have actually found someone- congrats but I bet they haven’t delete the app.
I hate how it says 17+ on the App Store but then go on the app and I have to be 18... if I have to be 18 then why does it say 17+
Not impressed 1/5
By mex barbie
Non attractive men
My account was hacked and the customer service is terrible. The email and password were changed so I can’t deactivate the account
Profile update 1/5
So hard to update profile such as where I m looking for
By Cammi C.
A dating site where you have to PAY in order to even message somebody. Yeah, okay. Why the hell would I do that when there are hundreds of other dating sites that are free?
The prices are ridiculous too. Maybe if it was less than $5, I would consider it. But it’s almost $30 for a month. Sounds like a rip off.
This site is stupid and controls what you decide your dating life to be. They charge extra for every “upgrade” to make you believe your “person” is on the site and better than you because they’re paying more. Ridiculous.
Not a lot of options 1/5
No plenty of options, I seem to come across with the same people, very disappointed.
Fake and dead profiles are knowingly posted by this company. 1/5
Update — I quit Match and after a lot of back-and-forth by email with their staff, they said they took down my dead profile. One year later they are still using my pictures, and a corrupted version of the text in my profile— a friend sent me the link. It is clear that they would rather sell memberships based on dead profile accounts than respecting their customer’s right to delete their information, and to respect their privacy.
Previous version of this review:
They lie by omission to people about who is a member and who isn't. The two most egregious methods I know about personally are showing my canceled, hidden profile to my current lover thus creating turmoil, and showing the profile of a married former lover to me when she canceled her profile years ago.
These lies cause disruption in relationships, and unhappiness in their clients.
To guard against this, I had deleted my pictures, and completely changed my text to contain statements like I am no longer on Match. Those changes lasted for a while, and then they reverted my profile back to a previous version. Yes, it’ is really that bad.
Though there are more people here than many other sites, most of those accounts may be knowingly dead.
The money-grubbing nature of the site permeates the experience. They are always trying to figure out new angles to charge for features that used to be free, and thereby actually lessen the value of the basic membership by giving others an advantage. This practice has spread as the managing company now also controls Chemistry, Plenty of Fish, and OkCupid.
You find this app to be very helpful in finding a potential match. No pun intended. However, the app itself is extremely slow and does not perform as fast as most apps I have been on. It’s rather annoying when you have notifications but there seems too be no notification. This app lags in performance. I expect much more from a renowned site for online dating, especially one in which I’m paying for. Get it together already! It’s unacceptable.
Fake Notifications 1/5
I get 6-7 notifications a day from them. When I click on the notifications, it leads me to no where. No messages, no likes etc.
Also, when chatting with someone, it would appear they reply but I don’t see the messages for hours, sometimes a day. But the time stamp shows they replied immediately after I sent my message. Pretty frustrating.
Just like others are saying 1/5
Almost gone three months with dozens of likes sent and messages sent. I’ve noticed the same summary for lots of profiles and this is just the company’s way of trying to lure you into thinking someone is matched for you. The custom search is the only way of finding someone with all or most of your preferences, and even then there are so few people to be matched with. Zero dates and lots of regrets.
How to delete account because i don’t have money to pay
Unethical Business Practices 1/5
Title says it all. ‘Guarantee’ is garbage, with restrictions on phone-based subscription purchases (really??? You can’t honor the guarantee because I used my phone to make the purchase? Why was the ‘guarantee tracker’ active then?) Legal, probably, but I’d never do business with them again. Very dissatisfied.
Account hacked terrible customer service 1/5
By Hey hey star
My account was hacked of course this is not the fault of Match.com. However it happened several times when I called customer service to report it and requested a refund as I did not feel comfortable using this site, they said that they would not automatically renew my subscription but no refund would be granted. They have a major problem with reach in there security system and I would not recommend this site as your account will be taking over and messages will be sent on your behalf without your awareness for approval.
Women don’t bother 1/5
I am 23 year old female looking for men within my age. Not 35+ year old men. If you’re looking for a sugar daddy or older men don’t hesitate to look here. Ladies beware that men on this app are not quality men. They will call you babe within the first hr of texting. Don’t waste your money or time .
Do NOOOOOOOOTTTTTTT UPDATE! 1/5
“ This app is a solid four stars. How can we get that down to make it a cumbersome one star?”
- a board meeting at Match.com
You can no longer actually see the pics and it just isn’t smooth anymore. Wish I could go back. It was all good just a week ago.
It’s like eating your breakfast cereal with your off hand.
Not the best dating App 1/5
I should have read the reviews before purchasing the membership. I’ve been on more dates from other free apps than this site. It doesn’t really help you match with people, I was kind of hoping for some algorithms based on personality traits that would help. Wish I could get my money back!
Also trying to get my profile removed was a pain!
Waste of time 1/5
Pretty much a useless app. Most of the profiles don’t seem to active. Their daily match is one of the biggest jokes. You list what you are looking for, what you consider deal breakers and they match you with profiles that fall under dealbreakers, 9 out of 12 profiles each day. If you are under 5’8”, forget about it. Even the women under 5’ are asking for the guy to be over 6’. Save your money, this app is a scam.
Need to delete my account with you guys 1/5
Waste of time and money I want to cancel my account and I can’t not can some one help me please!!!!! This is my biggest mistake sign in in this app need help plz!!!!!!!! Match just cancel my account not much to say about this site is just a very bad dating app so just let people go don’t keep it make it easy for customer for delete our account
