Match.com Needs to Update!!!

I know no one will read this, especially from Match.com but… Match.com is probably the oldest and claim to be the biggest internet dating service. Whether or not that’s true I don’t know. I’ve been on it since they started. So long I have a free account from when they first offered accounts. (*)

In this day and age of Web 2.0 or Web 3.0 or whatever you call things now a days there are sites like Google Plus

or the new Flickr

or heck, even Facebook to some degree

that are all LARGE PICTURES, fast to update, nice UIs. Then there’s Match.com which looks like it hasn’t left the 90s and dialup modems. Pictures are postage stamp size. The UI is all over the place. It’s like a throw back to geocities days.

Come on Match.com!!! KEEP UP WITH THE TIMES!!!

(*) Why I’m still single having been on match.com for ~20 years is another story but that’s beside the point. (T_T)

    The look or layout isn’t my problem with them. Being matched with men looking for “Big and Beautiful” or “Full Figured” women is. A man who lists “Slender” or Athletic and toned” isn’t going to be interested in me. I’m not looking to change anyone’s mind about what they like and don’t like, I’m just looking for someone who wants me.

    I’m also on a BBW dating site, but their matching system could be greatly improved. Very few locals for me to choose from. …I went to Match because I thought they would have a better matching system and figured they are so well known, that’s where the men would be.

    You’re probably right that’s a bigger problem but, that’s a problem with all dating sites, not just match.com.

    In particular it’s super easy to reject people online by just looking at their stats. I assume a lot of women reject me because I’m 47 where as if they met me in person first they wouldn’t guess I’m that old. In fact in the last year in real life I’ve had 4 women (28, 31, 33, 33) all declare their interest and yet online a 38 or 40 yr old woman won’t give me the time of day.

    I guess the lesson there if dating sites are not working for us we should try something else.

    Good luck in your search. My sister was BBW when she got married.
