Free sign up to find love on match

With so many dating sites out there, you may be a bit hesitant to crack open the wallet for just anybody. Match.com is one of the world’s largest dating websites, and lucky for you, there are a number of ways you can use it for free.

Sign Up

How to Sign Up

Simply go to match.com and fill in your basic details on a welcome screen (are you a woman or a man, are you looking for men or women, age range, and your zip code). You’ll then be asked for your email and will get a message in your inbox. You can now begin using the site for free. Create your profile, upload photos, and browse singles.

Use Match for Free 

Want to enjoy the benefits of being a Match member without  committing to a monthly cost? Sign up to receive promotions to your inbox. While Match doesn't offer a free trial,  you can use the site for free with restricted access until you buy a premium package. 

What Does the Free Version of Match Include?

Like any member, you can create a user profile with photos and cruise through the site viewing profiles of other users both on your computer and your mobile device. You will also be able to send and receive “winks” from other users and see which ones are potential matches.

You’ll be able to chat with other singles, send and receive messages, see who’s viewed your profile, and attend Match events held in your area. In addition, you can catalog the users that you liked and filter out those who weren’t to your liking.

What Don’t You Get?

If you don't want to hand over your payment details and sign up for a full membership, you can set up a free account, though there will be limitations. You won’t be able to communicate with other members or send messages. You also won’t be able to see who has viewed or favorited your profile. It’s basically a way to take a spin through the site and see what it has to offer, without being able to play the field.

Ok, I Like What I See, Now What?

Now that you’ve taken Match.com for a test drive and you like what you see, you can renew manually on the sign-in screen by clicking “subscribe” and picking a subscription plan that works for you.

Bottom Line

Match is an industry giant that has become a synonym for online dating. The company has a wealth of subscription plans to offer and a proven track record in mass-scale matchmaking. And the best part? You can try it out for free, without making a commitment - until you’re ready.
