Match is easily one of the Internet's largest and most popular online dating sites with millions of members internationally. It has all the bells and whistles of the larger sites, and appears to change quite well with the times in terms of features and benefits.

As befits a big dating site, Match.com allows you lots of freedom. Profiles boast all sorts of great ways to define yourself, including not only the usual categories but more detailed questions such as "what was the last book you read?" or "what are your favorite travel spots?".

Searching is particularly fun on Match.com. There's a one-click search which uses your preferences, but the coolest feature is the site's use of "matchwords": members attach words to their profiles like "travel" or "fine dining" so potential matches can find them by simply typing in a simple phrase. Works great!

One great thing offered by Match that is rare in the online dating world is its guarantee: if you sign up for a six-month subscription (at the pretty darned low price of $16.99 a month) and don't find anyone suitable to your desires, Match.com will give you six more months free.

So really, what have you got to lose? Match.com offers a large base of members, all the features you need to search high and wide, and a guarantee for cryin' out loud. Online dating should always be this simple.
