Online matchmaking services are different from online dating services in several key ways. They devote more resources to facilitating highly compatible matches, have state-of-the-art communication methods, and support their clients through the process with various tools and libraries of information. Here are my recommendations.
Match is one of the early pioneers of online dating. Match provides you with the ability to do your own searches or use their matching technology to find matches based on the information you put in your profile.
There must be advantages to being one of the early innovators in online dating. They have grown up in the business, so to speak. So they must have gained some insights on what truly works and what doesn’t.
Match is one of the most recognized and largest dating services in the world with millions of members.
Matchmaker has been online the longest. Its emphasis is on long-term serious relationships.
I sincerely wish I could, but I can not recommend this service for these reasons.
- No specific criteria for physical preferences (tastes, attractions) such as body type (frame), weight, skin shade/texture, hair color & length, etc.
- Too much emphasis on religion. Important issue, but way too many questions.
- Hint – Co-founder, NCW, is a psychologist, theologian, and seminary professor.
- They send you a barrage of up to four (4) clever — get you to buy and upgrade — emails a day after signing up for something free.
I suggest joining several services that offer a free trial of some sort. Then buy the upgrade for the one that “feels” like the best match for you!
I hope you find an online matchmaking service that unites you with the love (ers) of your life! 🙂
