Need more privacy?

When you’re dating online, the power should always be in your hands. With Incognito mode, profiles won’t be notified if you visit them, and your profile will only become visible to people you’re interested in – so, spend less time searching and more time finding someone special.

We also have Zen mode for those meditative moments when your notification bell could do with being muted! In Zen mode, only people who match your criteria can contact you, so you can get on with yoga (or however you like to relax) in peace.

Is Match just for heterosexual singles?

Not at all! If you’re looking to start your online dating journey in the same-sex world or if you’re gender diverse, we are here to help you find other serious singles in the UK. Match stands for diversity and acceptance, and the safety of singles is our top priority. Online dating should be a fun and safe way to explore yourself – and perhaps meet someone else along the way!
