SCRUFF Match Guide

SCRUFF Match Guide

SCRUFF Match is powered by the relationship status and open to sections of your profile. Visit your profile settings to make sure you see the kinds of members you’re into.


If you select single or widowed for your relationship status and relationships in the open to section of your profile, we’ll only show you members who are single or widowed and open to relationships when you open Match.

You’ll match with members who are looking for dates and relationships with someone like you.


If you haven’t selected single or widowed for relationship status or relationships in the open to section of your profile, we’ll only show you members who haven’t selected those things either.

You’ll match with members who are either single or coupled and open/poly and who are looking for fun, dates, chats, or random play.


You can update the relationship status or open to section on your profile at any time to change who you see on SCRUFF Match.
