How to get the most out of your free dating trial

At match.com, we are offering a three days free dating trial, so you can try out our services and chat to our members before signing up for the full subscription.

With all these great features to try out and lots of lovely singles to chat to, we ‘ve put together our top tips to make the most out of your free dating trial so that you don’t miss out.

Once you’ve tried it, we’re confident that you’ll want to stay signed up.

Fill out all your profile details

Your profile is where other members can get a flavour for your personality and interests, so it’s really important you spend time filling this out.

Sometimes it’s hard to think of what you should write, so you may want to put it off until another time. Our advice? Get stuck in as soon as you sign up and commit to filling out all your details. Don’t worry too much about getting it perfect and polished as you can always go back and edit it later on. Your profile is your point of connection with other match members, so filling this out gives you the best possible chance of meeting your match.

If you need some inspiration on what to say on dating sites, read our advice on how to write your dating profile and our top tips for writing your online dating profile.

Add a photo to your profile

On match.com, the profiles which attract the most attention have a photo as well as a written profile which is no surprise. We recommend using a high quality photo which shows your face smiling in a flattering light, plus one full-length shot that shows you doing an activity. This will give the viewer an idea of the type of person you are.

Always make sure your picture is up to date as you want your match to want to date the real you, not an idealised image of yourself. We’ve got plenty of members on our site so be yourself and someone will like you just the way you are.

Wink & message members

Once your profile is up to scratch you’ll want to start contacting members to get the most out of your three day free dating trial.

Winking at other members is like smiling at someone you’re attracted to. You’re hinting at the other person that you’d like to get to know them and chat so it is a great way to make initial contact before sending a message.

Messages can be daunting to write so we asked our dating expert Kate Taylor for the seven steps to a perfect email.
