Want an easy woman? Go to SocialSex.com. Want a beautiful girl with some class that’s looking for more than just a piece of ass? Go to Match.com (or Xpress.com). We had a hard time putting Xpress.com ahead of Match.com simply because of reputation. Let’s face it, Match.com and eHarmony.com are the face of online dating sites.
- We like to look forward to the future and we truly believe Xpress.com will soon become the face of online dating. Just wait and see. This site will put Match.com and eHarmony.com to shame by 2015. We guarantee it. It’s about to really take off!
- It doesn’t take as long to get signed up and start contacting women on Xpress.com as it does on Match.com.
But we’ve already written an Xpress.com review. This one is about Match.com so that’s what we’re going to focus on. Besides, even though we’ve made it seem like Match.com isn’t any good, that couldn’t be further from the truth. If you read a review about Match.com that isn’t at least slightly positive, rest assured the people writing it are complete morons.
What’s there to know about Match.com? Oh, a lot of things! This is one of the biggest, most polarizing dating sites of all time. They offer virtually every necessary site feature you need (IM, email, video chat, audio chat, advanced browsing, etc.). And those features are kept up-to-date.
Match.com pumps a ton of cash into keeping their site functioning properly and up with the times. Whenever another dating site comes out with a new feature, Match.com one-ups them. That’s what happens when your programming budget is endless. The reason Match.com continues to be a dominating force in the world of online dating is because they have the money to be.
It takes money to build a great classified personal ads site. Marketing a product like this costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. In the case of Match.com, it costs MILLIONS. They bust out with new television and radio commercials, banner ads all over the web, and use virtually every marketing tactic to attract as many people to their website.
Match.com is very good at marketing towards a specific crowd, and that’s good news for you. They don’t just want anyone using their site. They want decent men and women signing up. We’re certain 99% of you have heard about and probably considered Match.com in the past. Heck, many of you have probably already tried out Match.com. Whether you’re new to the site or are an old-school Match.com member, we encourage you to not only read through this review…we’d like you to consider using the site.
Match.com: Results We Got Over 3 Months
- 270 email messages were sent to random women we hadn’t previously spoken to.
- 215 of those email messages were responded to by the women (please note: not EVERY response was genuine).
- 8 dates were set-up with different women between the 2 guys reviewing the website.
Before we begin going over our important events and occurrences on Match.com, we want to go over the details about our review process since not everyone of you has read our other reviews yet. First off, each of the sites were reviewed by 3 different guys for a period of 3 months. The idea was to see how many dates we could get set-up in those 3 months. We used the tactics and strategies we share in our dating guide on each site.
On Match.com, we had a lot of success. It wasn’t very hard to get dates set-up. Women were attractive (yes, there were some fuglies mixed in there just like any other dating site). We detailed our daily activities on Match.com and here were the key dates you might be interested in…
- Day 1: We began filling out the Match.com questionnaire and building our profile into the most badass profile we could come up with!
- Day 3: We were chatting with a few different cute girls at this point, getting close to setting up some dates.
- Day 5: This was the first day we got a date set-up and we’re quite pleased it occurred so quickly.
- Day 7: Another guy landed a date with an attractive girl today. Things are really going well in just one week!
- Day 18: Date #3!
- Day 25: Date #4!
- Day 39: It looked like we were going to have another date set-up but this girl just randomly disappeared off the face of the earth. Or, at least, off the Match.com website.
- Day 43: We shrugged off the disappointment of Day 39 by landing our 5th date on Match.com.
- Day 59: It’s been a little while, but…Date #6 is in the books!
- Day 75: Another drought that was ended…Date #7!
- Day 81: Less time in between dates scheduled. On Day 81, we picked up our 8th and final date on Match.com.
- Day 90: Our membership expired and we moved on to other classified personal ads websites.
For those of you non-Math majors, 8 dates in 90 days = 1 date set-up every 11.25 days, which is very good especially on an ultra-competitive website such as Match.com.
The Best Match.com First Emails That Got Results
We used a few different emails on Match.com but these ones were the most successful. Should you choose to copy and paste them into a message you send to a pretty girl you find on there, PLEASE make sure you do some editing and incorporate specific things about her (hint: read her profile!)…
“You’re a cool chick. You’re a cute chick. You’re my kinda chick! You like sports? That’s totally awesome for a girly girl like yourself. You look amazing in pink. But I’m not here to shower you with compliments (you’ve probably had 50,000 other guys this week do that). I’m here to ask you out for drinks. I think we have a lot in common and would have a mutually beneficial ‘relationship’. What are your weekend plans?”
“STOP!! I’m not a pervert! I swear! If I make one perverted comment in this email, you don’t have to respond back. Deal? Good. Okay, now that we have that out of the way I’m Billy (yeah, I know you can read my profile name and find that out, but I wanted to properly introduce myself) and I’d like to get to know you. Why do I want to get to know you? Because your profile really stood out to me. Not just your beautiful smile but also because we share an interest in Hockey. Been to any games lately?”
What We Didn’t Love On Match.com Ads
If we said Match.com was a perfect classified personal ads site, we’d be lying. It’s a great site, no doubt, but there were a few things we didn’t love on Match.com. They were…
- It’s an ultra-competitive site. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, depending on how you look at it. Because it’s ultra-competitive, there are a lot of very attractive girls. But on the downside, it’s not as easy to set-up dates quickly. You have to work extra hard on Match.com to meet someone. If you’re up for a challenge that you CAN handle, you’ll like Match.com. If not, maybe a site like Xpress.com would be better suited for you.
- It takes a bit longer to get going on Match.com than most of the other classified personal ads sites. There’s more to the sign-up process such as personality questions. They use the personality questions to match you with women you’d most likely be compatible with. Hence, why it’s called “Match.com”.
- There are millions of members on this site. And sometimes too many people can be a negative.
- It’s one of the more expensive dating sites. However, we do believe it’s well worth the cost.
Match.com Review: Is Match.com Any Good?
Match.com wouldn’t be around to this day if it weren’t any good. Sure, there are some crummy dating sites that hang around for years. But not sites as profitable as Match.com is. They make a ton of money and are constantly gaining new members. If the site sucked, that wouldn’t be the case.
So now you are probably curious to know what our recommendations are. We’ve spoke pretty highly about Match.com. But do we think you should join the site? Yes we do, however…
We think Xpress.com should be the first site you try out. Get acquainted with Xpress.com and then sign up for Match.com. We think you’re going to have more success on Xpress.comm than Match.com (or any other classified personal ads site), but you’ll be better off in the long run if you use both sites. And don’t forget to read our review on eHarmony.com too. That’s a great site as well and you should give it some consideration.
