SAN MATEO, JANUARY 20, 1998--Match.Com (, the online  matchmaking service, has entered into a partnership with WorldRes, Inc.(TM) to add a new element to Match.Com's Web site—online hotel reservations for singles seeking a romantic getaway.

"Match.Com is rapidly becoming the one-stop location for singles online. With partners like WorldRes, not only will we provide the resources for getting people together, but for keeping the relationship thriving."

This new partnership allows Match.Com members to easily search WorldRes’ database of hotels by destination, price range, date of arrival and other criteria, view a list of properties with real-time rates and availability, make a reservation and receive an instant confirmation--all online. Each hotel listing features detailed property and guestroom descriptions with photographs, and the site highlights a number of special offers and discounts.
Customers can opt to receive special e-mail promotions targeted to preferred destinations they select during registration.

"We are pleased to add Match.Com to the WorldRes network of marketing partners," said Scott Potter, WorldRes' vice president of business development. "This agreement demonstrates how easily our technology can be adapted to add value to special interest Web sites worldwide."
