Geoff, an online dating newbie, joined match.com in the summer of 2012. Amy, a match.com vet, had just re-joined the site to spice things up for the summer. One random July day, Amy came across Geoff’s profile. Not only was she drawn to his uncanny resemblance to Brad Pitt, but she also loved the fact that his profile lacked shirtless selfies.

Today we’re highlighting our last #MatchMade Scholarship Contest finalist –Austin! Austin just started classes at North Central Texas College, Corinth Campus after graduating from Lake Dallas High School earlier this year.
Austin’s video was chosen as a finalist because it sweetly showcases how Austin, an only child of a single mother, always wanted a father. After meeting the new man in his mother’s life way back in 2003, he knew it was “Dad at first sight” and their family began to grow!
Today we’re highlighting the fourth of five #MatchMade Scholarship Contest finalists –Dacia! Dacia attends the University of Wisconsin, River Falls, while working three jobs part-time to make ends meet as a college student.
Dacia’s video showcases the story of her mother and stepfather, step-sister Aevean and their two younger half siblings Iris and Asa. Their story is a testament to long distance relationships, blended families, and taking that big leap of faith.
Laure and I dated briefly right after high school, in 1996. Life took us both in different directions, for nine years. We both married and divorced and I moved about 120 miles south, while Laure stayed in the same town we’d both gone to high school in. Read more…
Today we’re highlighting the third of five #MatchMade Scholarship Contest finalists –Olivia! Olivia attends Newton North High School in Newton, MA, just outside of Boston. She lives with her new sister Lucia and her two moms, Amy and Oona!
Olivia’s video showcases her two moms and how they found each other on Match - with only three days left until her subscription ended, Olivia’s stepmom found her future wife, and a new family, just in time.
Today we’re highlighting the second of five #MatchMade Scholarship Contest finalists –Noah! Noah and his MatchMade family live in John’s Creek, Georgia, a quaint suburb of Atlanta, where Noah attends Johns Creek High School as a freshman.
Noah’s video charmingly showed us how Jim, Marci, Noah and his baby sister Lindsay came together as a family through Match, and gives people a glimpse into a tale we at Match so often hear — a single mom ultimately finding love with a man who initially said he didn’t want children on his Match profile!
Today we’re highlighting our first of five #MatchMade Scholarship Contest finalists – Rachael! Hailing from Abilene, Kansas, Rachael attends Abilene High School (go Cowboys!) and hopes to one day become a journalist and enjoy studying abroad in college.
Rachael was chosen as a #MatchMade contest finalist because of her video entry’s heartwarming nature, and her ability to bring us into her family’s MatchMade world. Her video uniquely told the story of how Match helped to bring her parents together—Rachael’s single mom and a charming soldier overseas—and how love and family know no distance.
We’re excited to announce the five finalists in our first-ever , a video contest open to kids of parents who met on Match. The five finalists, ranging from 14-20 in age, will be vying for the $50,000 grand prize, with voting open to the public beginning today! Read more…
