Millionaire Match is a popular site running since 2001 and with almost four million active members.
Design and Features
This matchmaker website and app focuses on creating an attractive minimalist interface that works on desktop PCs, as well as Android. (Apple IOS is coming soon). Users can search through user profiles and pictures or share “moments” in a similar manner to social media. The award winning website offers features like chat, certification of status (with an annual $200,000 minimum), local searches, dating advice from online counselors, and even a feature that lets you spy on who’s viewing your profile. The Tinder-like interface also allows you to swipe right or left to keep your search fast-moving.
Membership Fee and Prices
Standard or free members can not only preview the site but also create a profile. You can add up to 26 photos, search by country and state, send unlimited winks and create a list of favorites. When a Gold Member messages you, you can respond to their message.
However, in order to send a message to someone without an invitation you must become a Gold Member. You also get more options for chatting, emailing, filtering, security, reverse matches and even “view last login time” to help filter out inactive users. Gold membership costs $70 a month when paid by the month. However, you can get a discount if you purchase an advance of six months or three months, $240 and $135 respectively. Membership automatically renews and sometimes the company will need to contact you to verify your charge.
The site specifically caters to doctors, CEOs, athletes, lawyers, investors and entrepreneurs who make at least $200,000 annually. “Attractive” members are usually fit, models, or beauty queens. Some celebrities even use the matchmaking site.
Management also says the site is NOT meant for sugar baby or sugar daddy relationships, which means they stress “success” more so than gold digging and sexual favors trading. They even claim to focus on long-term relationships more than casual dating.
What could be a problem for some users is that the management does not actually do background checks for its users. It also only offers verification and certification services for paying members who want to put their verified status online to attract more users. It does not force any of its members to verify status.
Millionaire Match has been mentioned on high profile sites like CNN, Forbes, ABC, CBS and The Wall Street Journal. Why? Not only because of its popularity but also because of its long tenure as the “original millionaire site.” Popularity is good as it leads to more members overall. But be sure to spend some time getting to know other members, since the relatively easy screening process is not a guarantee of identity.
