Great expectations dating service out business mamas boy reality dating show
I joined may of 2007 so I don't remember the wordes of her sales pitch I just remember she put alot of pressure on me. Avoid this company unless you are fond of high-powered sales pitches.
The "Relationship Expert" conducted the interview - nearly 2 hours long. Having recently suffered through a relationship break-up, I was quite vulnerable and the "Expert" was quick to pick up on this.
Of course, I couldn't afford to pay that amount of money.
With her "kind heart" and saying that she felt I was "special, " she offered to let me use one of her "family and friends employee discounts." I was cautioned to not tell anyone about this. I KNOW that I should have done my homework on this company before visiting their office, but we all make stupid mistakes especially when we are emotionally fragile.
The company was being sued in Pennsylvania, so maybe there is hope for us in other states.
It was very important to be 'self-aware.' So you'd get ads like: 'Astrologer, 27, psychology student, desires to establish non-superficial friendship with sensitive, choicelessly aware persons who are non-self-oriented, deep, and wish to unearth real, personness relationships.' " The service achieved some notability, but it never overcame stigma.
There were also apparently other video dating services like Teledate and Introvision, but it's nearly impossible to find anything about them online. A bulletin board system for romance started by Jon Boede and Scott Smith.
Matchmaker grew to 14 local BBSs throughout the US.
In order to date online, you had to pay an additional twenty or thirty dollars a month, in addition to the outrageous membership fee I mentioned earlier.
I did not receive one date-I got to talk to a girl on the phone for a lousy five minutes. I wish I had known about the class action lawsuit, so I could have gotten my money back! This dating service should be taken off the market.
It is one of the most deceptive services I have dealt with. Once they get you into their office, they won't let you go.
