Easy to Use
Once you start using the website, you will see that they really care about the quality of their service. They created a “Quality member score” which will evaluate how dedicate you are to the website and to which extent you have enjoyed the different features of the website. If you have a high quality member score, you will have a certified seal which will give you several advantages (you can share your phone number and email address to other people) and of course which will reassure other members regarding your seriousness and the fact that you are not a fake profile. In addition to that, there are a lot of features you can use. There is a match maker, the possibility to build a list of favorite, the possibility to do video chats and audio chats, forums, instant messaging, personal blogs, profile scrapbook, the possibility to make a friend list and also to send winks (similar to a like). So this website is not just a dating site it is almost like a social network!
When it comes to searching other singles, there is a search tool that you can use. You can use different filters such as location, gender, age range, relationship status, smoking and drinking preference,... You can also specify if you only want to see only profiles that have photos. And if you want to find someone who has a personality similar to you, you can look at the results of their personality tests if they completed some. Indeed, there are 20 personality tests available that you can share with the persons you have in your friend list.
Safety & Security
Regarding the privacy, there are privacy setting that you can modify in order to avoid showing your information to undesirable persons just like in social networks such as Facebook. Also, you have the possibility to use the invisible mode. That means that no one will be notified when you will visit their profiles. You can also choose to turn off the instant messaging feature if it makes you uncomfortable to receive messages from strangers. And also, you can report immediately any offensive or suspicious behavior and you can block someone if you don’t want this person to be able to contact you or to even see your profile.
So if you are looking for a website on which you will be able to meet singles easily and without paying anything, then BookofMatches might be a great option for you. Of course, the website is not perfect since the user base is not incredibly huge and the layout is a bit outdated. But except from that, they offer a great service! You can communicate freely with the different members in many ways, you can use the search tool to find someone that really meet your expectations and you can have a clear idea of who you are talking to since members have the possibility to build profiles similar to the ones they would have on social medias. The profiles have a lot of information, pictures, content and you can even have other members giving you a testimonial/shout out on your profile!
