Our Review

IndiaMatch is one of People Media, Inc.’s niche dating websites. This particular dating site provides a platform for Indian men and Indian women residing in the United States and Canada, to meet and form relationships.

The dating site only advocates for serious relationships, which is why important features such as messaging are not free. Since its launch more than 10 years ago, the dating site has gained more than a hundred success stories.

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • Majority of members are of Indian nationalities residing in America
  • High member activity
  • Most users are within the age range of 25-34
  • Members are usually looking for love and serious relationships

Since the dating site is only available in the United States and Canada, most members of IndiaMatch are residents of these countries who have Indian blood. There are some who are half-Indian, while most are full-blooded Indians who grew up in the United States.

IndiaMatch has a high number of registered members for a niche dating site (over 400,000 users and growing). And its member activity is also considerably high. However, when you visit the search page of IndiaMatch, the default results do not refresh. Also, there is hardly anyone online in the chat box on the right sidebar.

Signing- up in IndiaMatch is a quick and easy process. You just need to provide basic details such as your birthday, gender, email, country (the US or Canada only), and zip code. You also need to choose a username and nominate a password.

Making Contact

IndiaMatch Search
  • You can send a flirt for free to members you like
  • Sending and replying to messages is a premium feature
  • You can add members to your favorites list
  • Instant matching available
  • Member search display rarely refreshes
  • Members are rarely online in the Chat function
  • There is a chatroom

The premium membership of IndiaMatch allows you to experience the dating site’s important contacting features. A free member can only send flirts and add appealing users to his or her ‘Favorites’ list. Other than that and the search feature, the hands of free members are tied when it comes to contacting others.

As for premium members, not only can they send messages, but they can also see who have sent them flirts, viewed their profiles, and who have put them in their ‘Favorite’ lists. These features are beneficial to have especially if you really want to find a partner through IndiaMatch.

Profile Quality

indiamatch profile
  • Your profile remains invisible until your profile photo is approved
  • Profiles feature basic details and self-written paragraphs
  • Members can upload up to 30 photos on their photo galleries
  • There are active status indicators on every profile displayed on the member search display
  • Profile information and photo galleries are visible for all users
  • Profile photo and profile information can be changed later
  • The profiles are poorly detailed

Profiles in IndiaMatch do not show many details about the member. It only displays the information you initially gave out during the registration process, along with the ‘About Me’ paragraph that is optional to write.

Right below, two interaction buttons can be clicked by any other member. The first button is the ‘Send Message’, which would either take the person to an upgrade page (if a free member) or a message text box (for premium members). The other button is ‘Send Flirt’ which would notify that particular member about your interest.

There are three tabs found in every profile in IndiaMatch, underneath the two interaction buttons:

  1. About - displays the basic details such as age and zodiac sign, as well as the self-written paragraphs that are optional to fill out
  2. Photos - shows all uploaded photos
  3. Our History - recounts all interaction with the particular member you are viewing

If you find the personally written paragraphs empty on another member’s profile, you can send a request for him or her to fill it out. There is a ‘Send Request’ button which when clicked, would notify that member about your request.

App

    IndiaMatch does not have a mobile app.

    Real Life Review

    Being a minority in the US, it’s kind of hard to date people from the same roots if you wish to. I’m an average guy, in my mid-20s, full-blooded Indian, but grew up in the US. I’ve dated an American girl back in my college days. We broke up because of cultural differences. We just couldn’t compromise! And so I’ve decided to date someone who understands me completely. Meaning, an Indian at heart, but has also picked up the culture here in America. So I went on IndiaMatch, which my brother recommended to me. I’ve been a member for over a month now, and I am enjoying my time so far. I’ve had really nice conversations with other girls, but haven’t gone on a date yet. Hopefully in the next month.

    Design and Usability

    The web design of IndiaMatch is good for navigating across all the features it offers. The features are neatly organized on the top menu bar and on the left and right sidebars of every page.

    On the search page, suggested members are presented in a grid layout. Search results are shown through rows of profile photos. On each side of every profile photo, the following details are displayed: username, age, and location. The ‘Save’ button that puts users to your favorites list is underneath this information.

    Editors Conclusion

    Chris Pleines
    Overall, IndiaMatch is a competent website where Indian singles can talk and find their rightful match. However, one can only do so much with a free membership. The good thing is, IndiaMatch offers a fair price to performance ratio, so signing up for a premium membership deems to be worth it. If you reside in the United States or Canada, and are looking to date someone that shares your roots and cultural background, you can sign-up for free in IndiaMatch. And, if you think you are going to use IndiaMatch for more than three months, we recommend subscribing to the six-month package as it offers a really good deal.
