Warren says that he used Match.com because it doesn’t limit the age range of the people you search for and it shows pictures up front.
“She’s a lovely woman and right now I’m getting ready to pay for her to get a Visa so that she can come and visit me. Bless her heart, her mom was sick and I was able to help pay for the hospital expenses. Now it’s time for us to finally meet in person.”
Warren says that even though he’s pleased with finding his match, he’s upset at Match.com.
“When Olga first messaged me, she gave me her email address so that we could communicate via email instead of through Match.com. Within three days I knew it was love and I requested that my account be cancelled. However, Match.com still charged me the following month!”
When asked what affect him finding love at Match.com would have on eHarmony.com, Warren said that it didn’t matter because he had cashed out his 10 million shares of eHarmony to help with Olga’s expenses.
“There are Plenty of Fish in the sea,” said Match.com’s CEO, Thomas Enraght-Moony, “and Yahoo!… Personals do work.”
