Well, in the UK, Match.com is certainly the biggest. But is it the best? Who knows? We don’t. But one thing we can say for sure is that it’s good. Very good. And it should be, with its massive membership, wide range of easy to use features, fast response and smooth presentation. Although its features are mainly standard, it has a few things which separate it from the crowd. There can’t, for example, be many dating sites that have the confidence to offer a Make Love Happen Guarantee, and the site’s Windows Live Alert feature is something that’s of real interest to many. These immediately notify you of any contact through MSN, email or mobile phone which helps you to keep your profile active. Basically, Match.com UK is a well thought out and fun to use dating website, offering something for everyone.

If you’re looking for romance or friendship with people like yourself, this is a great place to go. That’s because it’s not actually a single website, but a collection of separate websites, each one designed to cater for specific needs. Once you’re there, you’re almost certain to find a site dedicated to people like you – you’ll find sites for mature people (50+), professionals, retired people, Christians....and more. Each site is crammed with members from all parts of the UK, is extremely easy to use, and offers totally free registration. We strongly recommend it - especially if you’re fed up of trawling the Web for the perfect dating and friendship environment.

One of marketing’s more overused (and abused) acronyms is USP. If you didn’t know (unlikely!), it stands for Unique Selling Point. Which is self-explanatory. Basically, every site should have one, but they don’t. One site that does, though, is Matchaffinity, in its distinctive Affinity Test - a personality profiling test which every member has to take as part of the registration process. It means that, the minute you complete the registration process and log on, you’re automatically linked to hundreds of people that share your interests, preferences and outlook on life. Sounds novel, and it is. But it’s not for the faint of heart – the test goes into a lot of detail about you (which some might think intrusive) and takes about half an hour to complete. Still, it’s a genuinely interesting angle, and one that’s used by a lot of people.
