IJL- It's Just Laughable
I almost fell for the scam. I didn't realize I was being given the hard sell when I called to find out more about their services. I was very clear that I did not wish to date men who were still raising their minor children. The first date they called to set me up on was with a man with two kids under 12. When I said that wasn't acceptable, her response was "You need to be flexible." What am I paying $1700 for, if not for personalized attention? When I said the most important criteria in a man is his sense of character and values, she responded by telling me about potential dates' music preferences and hobbies. Sheesh, I can slog through all this on a free online dating site. I am paying to be matched with men meeting my criteria.
The best part is when I called to complain and potentially work out these difficulties- she started telling me how I was wrong. She never took the time to even listen to my complaint to see if she could resolve it. Then she pressured me to either commit to their service (again without even listening to my problems) or they would place in the "Undesirable" category and never allow me to use their service. Who treats clients this way? For over $200 per introduction (not date, intro only) I expected much better service. It's like they couldn't be bothered. I cancelled my contract within the three day time frame so I should be refunded my fees. We'll see.
