Upon signing up, which initially is free, singles are directed to a personality test to better sort matches and determine the mates they would receive via email or notification on the site. First look at the proposed mates seems to reveal body type matches more than personality matches, but the more a person’s profile is built, the more a match can be made. Besides suggested profiles, there is an extensive search function allowing the user to find mates in multiple ways.
Besides an in depth search function, users have a multitude of other features that are easily accessible Match.com gives uses an option of marking their proposed matches as “I’m Intrigued” or “No Way”. This function will better assist the sort levels of matches.
There are also IM and email functions available between users that keep each anonymous to a point with each message only showing up through the Match.com website instead of going to a personal location until the users decide to share more personal information.
This, however, is a paid function.
DateSpark and Stir are two newer functions. DateSpark is yet another personality question that asks questions about a user’s perfect first date and matches users in hopes that they will never have another horrible first date!
Stir is Match.com’s “mixer” or social addition to their site. With a little location information, a user can find information about where to meet singles in the area and hopefully have fun in a group setting. It is a first come first serve type of event setting and the event listing will tell users if it is “Full” or “No Longer Available”.
