Aussie Match Maker Review
Just over 100,000 members doesn’t make Aussie Match Maker the online dating website for Australia, but it’s a respectably sized one and is well organized. The catchy orange and yellow color scheme is vibrant and cheerful, and probably much more inviting for men. After all, don’t they get easily spooked by all that hearts, flowers and cupids stuff?
This is a laid-back site with easy browse features, although you can’t get to the details on the profiles until you actually join. This sounds bad until you realize that joining is free – all you have to do is provide your email address and fill out the profile form. With this you can send a limited number of emails, respond to emails sent to you and send winks to members you’re interested in.
You can upgrade to a premium membership for a monthly fee. This entitles you to a higher ranking in search listings and unlimited email usage. It’s easy to sign up for the upgrade with a major credit card, but be aware that it will automatically renew, so when you’re done with your membership be sure to cancel the automatic charge or it will keep showing up on your bill.
The chat rooms are active and friendly, and the community bulletin boards are interesting. It seems that members of Aussie Match Maker have formed loose circles of friends and use the bulletin boards to regularly schedule their own “meet and greets” or, as some referred to them in the messages, drinkie nights, on a regular basis. A site that fosters this type of camaraderie can definitely be counted as a success.
Searches can be as broad as you want (any man with a pulse if you’re desperate) or as narrow as you need it to be (if you’re ridiculously picky, look for a non-smoking man from Queensland aged 40-45 with blue eyes, brown hair, and hobbies that include motorcycles, traveling and world music who is of European descent. No guarantees, but you can try it.). With this kind of range, Aussie Match Maker is a good site for spending some nights having fun searching and emailing to your heart’s content – and you might just get lucky and find “the right one.”
