Matchmaker boasts being the oldest dating site on the web, and they have certainly been around for decades, starting up in 1996. They have hundreds of thousands of members who stick around because of their innovative scientific matchmaking, with matches sent straight to your email inbox, and offer completely free services, even including some communication tools with no charge at all.
10 million active members, and a ton of extra flirty dating tools means you will never get bored at Matchmaker.
In addition to search tools and profile building options, Matchmaker is dedicated to putting some real fun into online dating. The Mingle tool is a great example of this, where you can mark whether you’re interested in a steady stream of passing singles, and you will be notified about mutual matches. Mega Wink is another awesome dating tool, allowing you to flirt with loads of new members at once.
You’ll never miss anything at Matchmaker thanks to the easy-to-use Activity tab, which shows profile viewed, likes, when you’ve been favorites or favorited others, and who is active and new on the site as well. This activity is known as Sparks, and you can head to the dedicated Sparks tab to see in detail who has been flirting with you on the site.
Along with the regular sign up questions such as your gender, location, and birthday, Matchmaker asks you to provide some interesting things about you.
They also ask for characteristics that you find attractive in other singles to generate compatible matches for you.
You will also be asked to describe your physical appearance, as well as your faith, occupation, education level, and whether or not you smoke or drink. While some of these questions are optional, the more information you give about yourself and the more you describe your soul mate, the better chance you have of finding true love.
There isn’t a dedicated safety tips page on Matchmaker which is a shame. However, the site seems really genuine and we didn’t spot any abusive or fake profiles either. The FAQ is extensive and you can get in touch with Matchmaker via contact form if you have any problems using the site.
MatchMaker.com offers a free sign up and membership. However, if you want to get the most out of your MatchMaker experience, you will want to upgrade to the Gold membership. They do offer month-by-month service, but the best deal is their 12-month subscription, which offers a savings of 66% more than their 1-month plan.
|OPTIONS||TOTAL COST||COST PER MONTH||SAVINGS|
|3-Month Membership||$69.65||$23.32||33% ($11.63)|
|6-Month Membership||$99.99||$16.66||52% ($18.29)|

The website is easy to use, if a little cluttered in places. All the activity and dating tools are found in the left tool bar, in an easy to understand list. The help section is organized into categories, as well as a search box for you to find what you need quickly.
We love the amount of one click searches you can find at Matchmaker. Ideal matches, based on your profile criteria and behavior on the site, matches who are closest to you, who are currently online, who are new on the site, or who are popular with other users can all be found with one click.
As well as this, try changing your search filters to adjust your results by any of the profile criteria completed on sign up, or simply enter a username or a keyword for more specific results as well.
