Match UK Review

Average: • 2.9 / 5 (by 6 Users) for Match.com UK   View Add

Match.com UK offers an excellent dating service for singles in the United Kingdom. They are also one of the top three dating sites in Britain. Match.com UK offers singles the ability to easily find numerous potential matches in just a few clicks, as well as the ability to communicate in a safe and fun environment.

A great feature of Match.com is their focus on expanding and improving their dating service to create an easy, useful experience for members. One example is the “Testimonials” feature introduced in late 2007. You can ask Match.com UK members or anyone else who is online to give you a testimonial. These testimonials help give other Match.com members a fuller picture of who you are. These testimonials help verify that the information you provide in your profile is accurate. Another great service Match.com has integrated into their service is matchMobile. MatchMobile makes it easy to check for mail and search for matches anywhere you want with your cell phone. Additionally, you get instant phone alerts when you receive new mail or a communication request.

flag_usa US and flag_canada Canadian singles, please read our separate Match.com North American review.

flag_ireland Ireland singles, the Match UK and Ireland dating service are virtually identical so this review applies to both. If you would like to try out Match please join Match.ie Ireland. This service works on phones as well.
