The secret to a successful search

At match.com, we don’t want anything to be a barrier to you finding your match which is why we’ve made our search options easy to conduct. You’ll see the exact type of matches you’re looking for in just a few clicks.

Quick search

“Quick search” allows you to find members according to:
• Age
• Postcode / Town
• Photo
• Online status

You can perform a “Quick search” on the homepage; fill in your chosen criteria and click on the “Search” button to view the corresponding profiles.

Advanced search

The “Advanced search” page is accessible from the “Search” dropdown menu.

This allows you to be more specific about your match; in addition to age and region you can also search by appearance, character, etc.

Tip: You can also filter members according to whether they have a photo, personal ad, or if they are online. Once you hit “Search now” and the profiles are on screen, you can select to display them in either “Detailed”, “Mini-profile” or “Photo only” view using the three icons at the top-right of the results list.

Perfect matches

Using the information provided in “About my date,” located in your “My profile” section, we can customise matches for you including:
“Perfect matches” (members who fit your preference)
“Reverse matches” (you fit their preference)
“Mutual matches” (you both fit each other’s).

So go ahead and have a browse!
