    Is match.com worth it?

    i am in my early twenties and a member of pof but it isn't working for me, ive dated a guy from the site but it didnt work out, i ended up getting hurt by it but things happen and we move on. anyway, my cousin met her now husband from link removed and they now have a 4 year old kid together, so it clearly worked for them, but i feel like if i actually join a site like that and actually pay for it, if it doesn't work out then it was a waste but at the same time ive heard that that site has more guys that actually are serious about finding someone, has anyone had any luck with match? i did make an account i just never paid for it yet, i kept debating whether or not to...is it really worth it?...thankss

    I'm using link removed right now.. Met 4 people in two months, no "matches" yet. Though, overall it's been pretty interesting. Due to the fact that people are shelling out 40 dollars a month, there are more "serious" people on that site than you'll see on PoF, which from what I have been told is mainly a hook up site. If you're looking for a relationship, I think you'll have better chances on a pay site.

    Like anything though, you get out of it what you put into it.

    I'm on eHarmony. If nothing happens with that I'm gonna try link removed. (I'm pretty sure they have a deal; "if you don't meet someone special in 6 months, we'll give you 6 months free.") I tried Okcupid but that was a joke. What is Pof?

    Give it a shot, I cannot promise you won't see the same thing since I'm looking from the male perspective but in general the vibe I get is pretty good.

    I really liked OKCupid. I was on it for a year, and I got a decent (for me) number of messages. If you're more nerdy/geeky/hipster/"quirky", it has a nice spread of people.

    I've been on link removed for four months and gotten almost no messages. It seems to be a site crammed with sporty, outdoor jock guys... not my speed at all. So, it also depends on what type of person you are looking for.

    I met my ex-girlfriend on link removed. My only caution is that most people who feel the need to use a dating website likely have some sort of emotional baggage that will rear its head down the road. Make sure that you address it before it blows up in your face.

    I'd say 80-90% of the people in the world have emotional baggage. I do agree with you though that it's wise to probe someone throughly before jumping into a relationship with them. I have a few things that I like to find out before continuing to date such as finding out when her last relationship ended (I steer WELL clear of being a rebound) and double check that her profile matches up with reality. Then, chemistry and conversation.
