PerfectMatch.com is a matchmaking site similar to eHarmony.com (*Est. $60 per month)and Chemistry.com (*Est. $50 per month). Relationship expert Dr. Pepper Schwartz created the Duet Compatibility Profile, which you can take for free, that includes questions on personality, lifestyle, values and preferences. Reviewers say the tests are detailed, though most questions are true/false, giving them a black-and-white feel. PerfectMatch.com allows members to include only wording from the tests and not their own words, which disturbs some reviewers and users. Unlike its competitors, namely eHarmony.com and Chemistry.com, you can also search profiles yourself. A guarantee on all multi-month subscriptions ensures you'll get a certain number of suggested matches each month.

PerfectMatch.com isn't a favorite with either the male or the female editor at NextAdvisor.com. He feels the test, with its true/false questions, is too simplistic. She's disturbed by the lack of personal input from users on their profiles and feels the "In My Words" part of the profile should receive more emphasis.

Editors at DatingSitesReviews.com give PerfectMatch.com its 2010 award for most innovative dating site because of new features like uploading videos (though no instant messaging yet) and comparisons of profiles of potential matches. Editors also like the guarantees and detailed questionnaire, though they grumble that it takes a while to fill out.
