Unique Features at Book of Matches
Book of Matches offers several unusual features for its members. Scrap booking offers Book of Matches members the opportunity to post any photo of anything (non-sexual). Any unwanted posts can easily be deleted by the picture poster.
Book of Matches members can also earn a "Certified Quality Member Seal" when they access the site enough times and perform certain activities to show they are real people and not a chat bot. Quality Scores show up on everyone's profile as a percentage, with 100% members earning their seal.
Tag blogs allows any user to write a blog entry, and then tag it with a series of words other users may find interesting. Book of matches members then search for tag blogs to read.
Finally, at the top of your screen whenever you log into Book of Matches, you'll see an ever-changing header that shows you who looked at your profile last. When a link shows up to another member, you can click on it and peruse their profile, without them knowing you are doing so.
Book of Matches Membership Costs
Book of Matches is a completely free dating site, with no fees whatsoever.
Book of Matches is a low-tech site, in that it offers a lot of ads and not a ton of bells and whistles that paid dating sites usually offer. Having said that, there are a large number of users active on the site. I personally found the site focused almost primarily on casual encounters rather than dating or long term relationships, and the forums were a difficult place to spend any time, as the moderation seemed minimal at best when I visited. Therefore, I wouldn't recommend Book of Matches as anyone's main source of dating fodder, but it might compliment some of the paid dating sites or allow access to a larger number of users that might not be found elsewhere.
