During signup, Match.com asks users to identify themselves as men or women and to select whether they are seeking out male or female companionship. Users must also indicate their ZIP or postal codes in order to view matches from their particular areas. The next step is to choose a username and a password for the site and to enter an email address to receive messages from Match.com regarding potential matches. The last step is entering a date of birth, which is useful in finding matches within a desired age range.
Once registered, members have the option to post profiles with their photos and details about what they are looking for in relationships. They can also view other members’ profiles and communicate with Match.com members by emailing, instant messaging and by giving other members a virtual “wink.”
