12StepMatch.com Introduction and history of site
12StepMatch.com is a dating site devoted to single adults in any 12 Step Programs of Recovery or just living a sober lifestyle. Besides finding sober love, you can also find friends and support. It was founded in 2009. I have to admit before stumbling onto this sobriety dating site I was not aware there were dating sites for recovering alcoholics. It’s a pretty neat concept.
Amount of members at 12StepMatch.com
12StepMatch.com has approximately 35,000 members, is a very active site and continues to grow rapidly.
In the course of completing our 12StepMatch.com reviews we saw that in many basic ways that the site is designed and functions very similar to major dating sites in that it is very easy to navigate through the site. Besides offering many of the same features as the largest dating site our there, 12StepMatch.com has a drop down list where you can search for other members based on your own personal 12 Step Program of Recovery and then continue your search with more in-depth and advanced search features. You can also do a quick search based on sex, age and zip-code. Pretty cool customizations!
Cost for members Due to the nature of the site, the developer has kept the fees extremely low. The site is free to join, post profiles with photos and search for other members. The only time there is a fee involved is if you want to initiate contact with another member; you would then purchase what is called an “All-Access” membership. It is not necessary to have an All-Access membership and there is no fee to respond to other members who write you. All-Access Memberships are sold by the month, starting at $19.95 for one month; a 3-month membership is only $24.95; a 6-month membership is $34.95 and a 1-year membership is only $44.95

Concluding comments as far as our impression of this site: 12stepmatch.com helps you to search and connect with other sober singles and adults knowing that all members of the site are living a similar lifestyle as you are. Also noted is that most 12 Step Programs are based on spiritual foundations so you would have that in common with many members, as well. 12 Step Programs and communities are very tight-knit and supportive communities and the added benefit to search for other members by your own 12 Step Program is very unique.
