At Match, we’re all about when it’s mutual.
You know what you want (and how you want it). So we say, do you: Keep your safety, wants, needs, and comfort at the heart of your dating journey. Whether you’re just joining Match or are a seasoned dating app pro, stay content with consent.
What is consent?
When someone freely communicates agreement or permission for something to happen, that’s consent. It’s all about recognizing and respecting boundaries: And only moving past them when both of you are on the same page.
As a general rule of thumb, “yes” means “yes”: So if you don’t get spoken consent, you don’t have consent at all.
What consent means, for them and you:
- Be your own compass.
Guide your dating journey based on your intuition. Communicate your likes and dislikes with confidence. If something doesn’t work for you, own it!
- Trust your intuition.
There’s no pleasure in people-pleasing — especially when it comes to self-expression. So be real and only say yes to experiences you’re 100% sure of: The right partner will meet you right where you are and won’t pressure you otherwise.
- Respect (and reflect) boundaries.
No means no, no matter who it comes from.
- Lean on us.
With dedicated technology and teams monitoring our platform, you can be rest assured we’ll stop scammers, spammers, and bad actors in their tracks. Do your part by reporting behavior that makes you uncomfortable: You deserve to feel safe every step of the way.
