Search Features

Match results are based on the information entered during your profile creation which is quite limited. This makes it difficult to find a perfect match with the few matching options available. 

Matchmaker does offer a variety of search features that includes basic, advanced and a “who’s online” search. A majority of profiles have at least a photo so you can do a search based on members with a photo.

Online Dating at Matchmaker.com

Matchmaker does a good job in what it was designed for, finding matches for people who are 30 and above who are looking for long term relationships. Enrolling in the service is free but sadly it ends there. Real functionality which is being able to communicate with other members is only available with paid services. Matchmaker is definitely a great place to start when you’re in your 30’s and searching for a serious relationship.
