Creating a profile, posting photos, searching for matches, and sending winks (a.k.a. flirting) is free, but any further contact requires a paid subscription ($39.99 per one month, or as little as $19.99/month for six). Features include: IM, matchMobile for access on your phone/ PDA, sending and responding to e-mail sent to your personal box via double-blind firstname.lastname@example.org address. If you opt for the 6-month "Love Package" as it's called, and you emerge single you can qualify for six free months—as long as you've fully completed your profile and emailed five new members a month.
Match.com has its own weekly online magazine called Happen. Archives dating back to 2005 promise tons of date ideas, expert advice, an astrology center and Q&As with stars like Richard Gere, Scarlett Johansson and David Duchovny.
