Book Of Matches Review

Average: • 3.5 / 5 (by 4 Users) for BookOfMatches   View Add

BookOfMatches.com (BOM) is a 100% free dating site. At no time will they ask you for a credit card. This is unlike other sites claiming to be free, but that charge members for additional features or upgraded membership.

BOM offers the standard features one would expect from a dating site. This includes a fully functional search and messaging system. It is the extras which set this dating site apart, though. Not only does BOM offer instant messaging and live text chat, they also offer video chatting with web cameras. This is relatively unheard of in the free dating site world. BookOfMatches also has added a social networking element to their service. Not only can you create a “favorites list” but you can create a “friend list” as well. Having a member on your friend list allows them to view information such as your personality tests, blog posts and pictures in your scrapbook, which other members will not be able to see.

BookOfMatches also realizes that your privacy and the quality of members are important. With this in mind, they have created a “Quality Membership Score” which takes into account how a member uses the dating site. Every member has a quality score which is visible on the profile detail page. BOM also has good privacy features which allow you set the criteria of members that can contact you. You can specify a number of attributes including location, gender and age range.

If you are looking to try a free dating site, I would recommend becoming a member of BookOfMatches to see if they have members living in your area - it takes about 30 seconds to find out!

Positive Features of Book Of Matches

  • Completely free
  • Excellent privacy options; you can allow only people that meet your criteria to email you
  • Video chat–most free sites do not have this feature
  • Members have a quality score that indicates how active they are on the dating site
  • There are lots of things to do on this dating site

Negative Features of Book Of Matches

  • It would be nice if you could specify less than 50 miles for a search distance range for matches
  • The look and feel of the site seems a little dated when compared to some other dating services
