Authenticity. Truthfulness. Today it’s never been tougher to live by those values and to stay true to ourselves and towards others. Between fake news and social media that pushes us to display a distorted and filtered versions of ourselves, it seems that fake is now part of our daily lives.
Online dating is no exception to that cultural shift. Singles are under more pressure than ever. The rise of “easy to use” dating apps has transformed romance into a game: Catch them all, or play again. We’re used to binge consumption; now too many of us are binge dating. No wonder 57% of single women ﬁnd modern dating exhausting*!
Match is determined to continue to ﬁght for real connections and has what matters the most: committed singles ready for real stories.
“Match isn’t a free dating service. Our subscription is a commitment in itself. We believe our singles are truly committed to – and involved in – their search for love. They know why they are here. They don’t pretend or have fake intentions », declared Emilie de Fautereau, VP Brand & Communication Europe – Match Group.
It’s what matters and how we can fight back in a world of fake.
In order for online dating to do its job: help people to start real stories.
This is why we launch our new brand platform and tagline :
MATCH. START SOMETHING REAL.
Match wanted to express this new positioning through a bold and impactful creative campaign. Created and orchestrated by Marcel Worldwide, directed by Helmi, the campaign displays a world drenched in fake and artificial, in order to emphasize the true emotions and authenticity of a real story on Match.
