Humsafar Matrimony helps bring people together in harmonious matrimony. You can find partners who suit your particular preferences and members can include their personal contact details so you can call or visit them. The site’s in depth profiles allow plenty of information to help improve matches, including photos and details on religion, languages spoken, horoscopes and more.
The site is quick and easy to join, and you can even perform a search without being a member. That means that profiles are public, so you’re more likely to receive attention. Basic membership allows you to browse the site for free, view a limited number of search results, and you can reply to personal messages from paying members. This is a great bonus because it means that you don’t need to pay in order to talk with others. However, free members cannot initiate contact, so if you’re interested in pursuing someone on the site then you’ll have to upgrade.
Paying members can send personalized messages and receive messages which convey interest in them. You can also access members’ contact details so you can get in touch without using the website. This makes the site somewhat redundant if you happen to get talking to someone quickly, as you can then move your conversations to another site or use an instant messenger, Skype or other medium to talk. Still, it means you don’t need to keep paying membership fees once you’ve found someone whose company you enjoy.
Membership prices vary depending on the length of your contract. Longer contracts also come with added benefits, such as being able to access a wider range of personal information, use horoscope features, access the advanced search facility and more. However, we weren’t completely convinced that the more expensive options really added much value over their cheaper counterparts. We also assume that the quoted “Personal touch” package price is an error, since it’s so much more expensive than any other package.
You can find members by performing a search, or by simply browsing a variety of categories. Key categories include religion, community and location. As free members, our search results were somewhat disappointing as we only received two pages of potential matches. To receive more results you need to upgrade your membership. We were pleased, however, to see an “ignore” option which allows you to remove a profile from future search results, so you don’t keep receiving profile matches for people you’re not interested in.
You can view featured brides and grooms, exploring their profiles and photos. There are also success stories to read, allowing you to find out about couples who found happiness together.
Live support is available if you need it, which requires you to include your phone number for the site’s team to call you back with any assistance you require. An FAQ is also available, although it is very brief. To further develop their support, we would like to see HumsafarMatrimony include a more detailed FAQ and some community features so that members can help each other. This would also build a more lively and engaging atmosphere around the site.
There are other areas for development around the site. It’s quite lacking when it comes to communication tools. You can send notes of interest or personal messages, but there are no live chat options or webcam tools to take advantage of. Given the price of upgraded membership, we would expect these features to be included. We assume, however, that a chunk of the membership fees goes towards providing the free profiles and allowing free members to respond to messages.
Essentially, HumsafarMatrimony.com is a useful site for meeting potential partners, particularly if you can’t afford to pay for membership. Being able to respond to messages for free is a great benefit, and if you can afford to pay membership fees then you have the power to initiate contact. Whilst the site is lacking some key features, it’s definitely worth performing a few searches to find matches, or you can simply create a profile and await messages from paying members.
