Members of online dating service Match who use the application will soon be able to request to speak with a dating coach over the phone for guidance and tips.

As an online dating service responsible for brands like Match, Tinder, OKCupid, and OurTime, Match Group aims to help people in all stages of dating find what they're looking for in a partner; however, online dating is not all sunshine and roses even with all these digital tools that measure your potential compatibility with another person.

To help users with the human element of dating successfully, the company has introduced AskMatch to the Match app, a feature that connects service members to dating coaches who can offer "some expert guidance, actionable tips or even just a listening ear" over the phone.

These relationship experts are available to members both on- and offline and have experience speaking with thousands of single people about dating. They can help users with a wide range of topics like how to craft messages and how to cope with a breakup.

According to Match's head dating coach Katie Wilson, "We've heard it all, so we can offer you a supportive sounding board and straight-forward advice, no matter what you're going through."

AskMatch will be available first to paid users in New York City this month via the Match app. By 2020, the entire United States is expected to have access. – AFP Relaxnews
