MatchAffinity.com is a very unique dating site. It uses a variety of ways to get singles to both choose the best possible choices, and interact with those choices as well. With a free membership, you can create a profile and upload a photo. In addition, you can contact any one of your “matches” initially for free (the first email), so that you can hear back from them immediately if they’re also interested in you. For paid members, there’s online advice which includes articles to read, and telephone and video chat.
Memberships range from 3 to 12 months and are reasonably priced. Each subscription automatically renews after the duration, but you can cancel at any time so it won’t cycle through to the next scheduled time duration, and customer service is easy to contact. There’s a lot to explore on the site and nearly unlimited possibilities of being connected to the “right” kind of person for your own unique personality. Taking MatchAffinity’s “Affinity Personality Test” utilizes state-of-the-art psychometrics for the best potential personality matches possible for each individual. The personality test is free to any member and is a very unique tool, one that was created especially for MatchAffinity.com. It’s unlike almost anything you’ve seen before.
Offering you the personality test and initial contact as well as being able to upload a photo for free is nice, but also somewhat limiting. You’ll feel compelled to upgrade in order to access premium services, like being able to send and receive multiple messages. The upgrades are reasonably priced, but only offered in British pounds and not the euro, which can be a bit of a pain to some people who enjoy paying that way. That one is allowed to stop his or her subscription “at any time” during a subscription time period is great. However, you’ll not be refunded any portion of the money already spent, so you must be very careful in keeping track of how long your subscription has been in place, and when to cancel it. This is an easy to use site, but the limitations for communication on the free version can be very frustrating for some people.

THE BOTTOM LINE
MatchAffinity is a great website for those looking for friendship, and something more long-term. Not the place to go if you are looking for a casual date or want to date lots of people.
