I haven't been using this site for long but it has already been apparent that the whole set-up isn't anything but a gimmick. First of all, if you're not a subscriber, you can do zilch. Soon after you join so-called free, you are lured by a stream of emails, winks and so many viewers. But here is the catch: you can't even see who's interested until you pay to subscribe. This is when the well all of the sudden goes dry. Interestingly, members who are apparently interested (according to match.com which provides you with daily matches) seldom respond to the emails which you subsequently send. This can imply that many of these profiles are either fake or inactive and are used by the website to keep the charade going.
Shortly after I joined, I kept wondering: I am an attractive, highly educated lady. I should get lots of interest. So, why is this not happening? well, my former statement gives you the answer. The pool of potential matches is very small or perhaps non-existent. At any rate, match.com continues to make money off naïve hopefuls like me.
If you want to keep yourself occupied by surfing the website, you could do so for hours...
I don't think that anyone would find a date much less their soul-mate on this site. It is a gimmick , probably like all the other dating sites. It is there to make profit not to find us compatible partners.
