How to Change Your Date of Birth on

If you find this useful please share it!


There are any number of reasons that one may want to change or update one’s age and birthday information on, including that you accidentally entered the wrong date of birth when you signed up, or that you intentionally put the wrong birth date (particularly the year) in order to ‘trick the algorithms’ (which is the excuse that most people give when they cop to having lied about their age on a dating site). Whatever the reason, if you now want to correct your date of birth on you may find that it seems impossible. But it’s not. Here’s how to update your date of birth on

The reason that it seems impossible to update your age on is because you can’t do it from the most obvious place, i.e. your profile.

What’s more, it would seem like you should be able to, because on your profile your age is hotlinked, with an ‘edit’ icon next to it!


This is not the place to update your DOB on

When you click on that ‘edit’ icon, inexplicably you find that all you can change is your gender!

At which point you may well give up, or even create a whole new profile just to have the correct information associated with your profile.

Or, you go searching for information about how to actually change your date of birth and age on, which is probably how you ended up here.

So, here you go.

  1. OMG… same situation with me. It is so annoying that you can’t change your DOB because you don’t know the incorrect DOB. I hate and stuck for 6 months with them.

  2. The above would work great, however, I can’t remember the birthday date I originally entered. I have my pw, but w/o the b’day, I’m out of luck, correct? I’ve emailed Match repeatedly to completely reset my account, but all I get are canned autoresponses that do not address the problem. Any advise?
