Match is one of the most recognizable online dating sites. Started in 1995, the platform offers inclusive profile options, a user-friendly app, and algorithms that help singles find the relationships they’re seeking. It also boasts over 96 million users, so chances are low you’ll run into the same people over and over. “With Match, you can clearly see if someone is worth your time before matching,” online dating coach Megan Weks tells Glamour. “That’s the beauty of its long-form profile. You can utilize a whopping 4,000-characters, in comparison to 300 with Bumble.”

After setting up a profile, you can include up to 26 photos (way more than competitors) and preferences about your potential date. There are screening questions about lifestyle, relationship status, education, and faith, plus icebreaker prompts. According to the brand’s website, 44% of members are between 30 and 49, 37% are over 50, and 59% are single parents—making it a great option for more mature users.
