As all free sites I came across a number of members simply looking for sex chat and some questionable profiles (scammers can create fake profiles).
Match offers a free sign-up and seach with limited contact functions however if you are serious about finding that special someone on match; in practical terms you will have to pay a monthly fee (something in the order of depending on length of term).
I found if you spend the time to set-up a comprehensive profile and (as with all dating sites) add quality pictures it is money well spent.
It did have an ‘approve or decline’ contact service which was at least one layer of screening although a little frustrating if you initiate the contact.
It was easy to block people and it had a social feel as it provided a list of chat contacts.
