Match affinity 21 comments

Given that we last covered the topic of there being a match affinity  rip off, coming from several comments and email that we had received at the time, we Have decided to take another look at what was said and see if any of the rip off comments still stand or if, given time Match Affinity have managed to cast off the doubters and provide the service that they pro port to provide.

So previously with comments like “how come match affinity dont give you 6 months free?” and “why would I pay for an add on to” and “should I wat till is upgraded?”

What the posters of these comments seem to have in common is that they didn’t use the “try before you buy” method! as you can get a free account on match affinity below, how on earth can you find yourself in the position of claiming its a rip off?

What all of these comments seem to have in common is that they do not take into account that affinity and are two seperate beasts, and as such should not be compared on a like – for -like basis.

Whilst one of these site aims to provide you the service of finding you a partner, the other is a collection of online tools that you can use to find you own “other half”!

We found in our match affinity review that this website was one of the best we have ever looked at, in terms of what you actually get for your membership subscription.

Why not take a look and see what you think.

is Match affinity rip off ?

We find it crazy that users are claiming that match affinity is a rip off, not only can you check out the site for free ( meaning that you dont have to spend a penny, for those that didnt get it first time) so rather than logging onto the dating site and then paying up for membership subscription within the first 3 hours, why not take the free test-drive and see of the service is actually what you are looking for in a relationship site.

    e harmony is awful if you’re in the uk. I got about 2 matches in several months compared to dozens and dozens on match and probably 4 dozen on match affinity. Currently got 6 months on match affinity. There are less matches than but they are closer to my own personality which is what I am looking for.

    Defiantly a major rip off. It’s exactly the same site(well all of the questions and pictures ect are) as dating direct. And surprise surprise there are only 3 people in my region.

    Eharmony works well provided that you actually write a meaningful profile that really reflects who you are and, what your passions and interests in life are. A clear and current, close-up photograph will also help. I don’t understand those who expect to be matched let alone responded to, without having supplied an appropriate photograph or, are either too vague, or too eccentric in their profile. I have come across people who blatantly sign up to Eharmony with a non-relationship agenda such as a quick fling, seeking financial gain or a boost to their low self esteem.

    I filled in all the forms for eharmony which was pages long you are asked are you married divorced seperated etc, i ticked seperated, got to the end of the questionaire only tobe told I could’nt join as i was’nt divorced, why not tell me this at the beginning so i don’t waste my time filling in forms.

    I have tried various sites, and quite honestly they are all pretty awfull. Match affinity is the lesser of the evils, however their affinity score system is on another planet. They are all by and large a total rip off. Essentially if you look at it as an investment into your future, but keeping a cl;ose check they are not taking you up the kin-yang. After all whats the alternative… Harmony is a dead loss, give your money to a charity, it’ll do more good. Match about the same as above. Though affinity are from the same stable, at least there is some sort of guidance, however dubiuos it may be. all the rest, just throw your money in the bin for all it will do.

    I signed up to match affinity 6 months ago, and for the first few weeks didn’t get many matches so decided to change my “wants” to reflect a looser profile and was sent on average , 9 good matches a day- 3 months ago I was pared with Richard, and plan on getting married next near!

    I suppose the moral of the story is to try it out for yourself, and be honest about what your looking for, the system deffinately works for some.

    But like anything, I you take a slapdash approach don’t expect much in return.

    I am 3 weeks into my first paid month subscription on match affinity- and to be honest I think the profiles that they have sent through are pretty much bang on what I have been looking for.

    So far I have communication with 3 ladies and plan on meeting one of them ( work permitting) in the next week.

    As far as being a rip off- I suppose you have to put a value on finding your soulmate ( not a nice thought, but valid if you are considering cost)

    I would happily mortgage my house for love, as i think there are more imprtant things in life than money.

    I think having the chance to find and connect with potentially the person that i want to spend my life with, and forking out fifty quid for help is an absolute bargain!

    I dint go into this expecting anything, other than to be connected with like minded ladies- in this respect the service delivers.

    Regardning the matches, you have to be realistic- and you have to put some effort in, yes the system will match you but only based on the information that you provide- If you are extreamly specific in what you are looking for then you can expect less potential matches- likeweise if you cant be bothered to take the time complete your profile properly, dont expect those that your details are sent to, to be botherd to respond.

    Give it a try on the free basis, with a good profile and set your “wants” loolsy- if the matches are what you are looking for consider paying.

    Wish me luck next week!

    I tried to join E-harmony and was rejected due to being separated and only discovered this at the end of the questionnaire. A friend recommended MatchAffinity and I paid for 6 months subscription and performed the searches and had several people that matched myself, but a lot hadn’t logged in for several months. I only used MatchAffinity once a week for a search and contacted a few people on there and had a few dates, one or two were scary! lol, towards the end of my subscription a new person joined MatchAffinity, I contacted her and she was on a free communication weekend with MatchAffinity, we exchanged contact information and to sum up we are now engaged and looking for a place together.

    MatchAffinity has worked for me, but my friend who recommended the website is still single.

    @Lesley – (Re: E-Harmony) I had exactly the same experience! I sent them a stinking e-mail! Why let you waste all your time completing pointless questions, just to be told you can’t join as you’re not divorced!! They don’t check criminal history, so don’t care if a murderer joins their site – as long as he or she isn’t SHOCK HORROR separated!!!!

    I like match affinity, I tried it out last week for free and I have quite a number of matches since im single. Buh to be honest I fink they should have at least give people full access in the first month coz im already bein asked to suscribe if I wanna keep sending msgs and that price is kinda too high in my own opinion to be honest

    Yeah – why don’t these sites just charge something like 10 pounds a month or something reasonable – then they would have more members. These members would get more matches and less people would leave after a month 39 squid short.

    On Saturday after, my daughter had been through a dreadful year I thought that I would cheer her up and we put her details onto dating web site.
    As 31 leads came through and you cannot see photo’s or message people until you register, I paid £77.00 for a package for her.
    We still could not access anyone so we went on the site help page. It was then that we realised what they had done!
    We had filled in all of my daughter’s information onto but without asking permission they had cloned all of the information and opened an account on, INCLUDING USERNAME AND PASSWORD !
    BUT we cannot access any of the lead without pay almost twice as much again!
    There doesn’t seem to be any way of contacting them and the telephone number on their site doesn’t ring!
    You also have to sign to say that they can KEEP taking money out of your account! WHAT A SCAM!

    I joined Eharmony in October 2014-rubbish! I had matches but I did not fancy any of them! Yesterday I told them to close my subscription-I was asked the reason why, when I explained that I was not physically attracted to any of the matches, I was told “we are a serious dating site”!!!!. The problem with Eharmony is that they appear to neglect the physical aspect of things : I am 6ft tall and I am expected to be ignore the fact that I prefer men that are taller than me just because we are mentally compatible? I asked her if a man preferred a petite woman should he then ignore this to suit Eharmony? I m happily on MatchAffinity:Rocking!!!
