I wanted to try out to see if the site lived up to the advertising hype. Unfortunately, it didn't. Here's why:

» You are limited to viewing 5 matches a day, so if you find the ones presented to you to not be appropriate you have to wait to receive more matches.

» You are given a Chemistry Profile based on a series of questions. This profile (major and minor personality types) is then used as part of the matching criteria. Your profile description includes rankings of which personality types match best with you. So I was surprise to find men with each of the different personality types all described to me as a "Great Match". It does not seem that the Chemistry Profile holds the necessary weight in selecting matches. Especially, as the men I found the most interesting WERE the ones, according to my chemistry profile description, which were considered the best match.

» This may seem minor, but what ended up really irking me was the large number of matches who seemed illiterate or extremely careless in typing. These were discounted immediately (and I saw 2-3 of these a day!) I recommend if you are trying to find a mate that you use a spell-checker, or better yet, have a friend review your statement.

I had paid a premium to join believing that their matching criteria would be more accurate. I was sorely disappointed to find it was not.
