Bianca’s take: Is Match worth paying for?
Match makes it hard for anyone with a free hoe werkt hiki subscription to interact with others on the app. To make your time worthwhile, you need to buy a plan. However, many Match reviews suggest that the website isn’t worth the money, stating that they weren’t meeting quality people and that they had trouble canceling their subscription plans. Of course, every user’s experience is different, and factors like location, age, and gender may affect it.
Despite their best efforts, Match’s UX and brand is dated. I strongly feel like the dating app and site could use a brand refresh to appeal to younger users. I don’t like the idea of paying for a dating app when other great apps allow you to meet singles for free.
However, because of the sheer number of people on the site thanks to the fact that it has a lot of brand recognition, and depending on where you live, it may be worth giving Match a chance.
