Mini Online Dating Service Review #1

Mail viewer limited to paying members. I pay to send and receive my mail but many of my sent messages never get read because the recipient is a non subscriber.


Mini Online Dating Service Review #2
Dating Site: LavaLife

Don't waste your time with this site. I would say that most of the female accounts are total fake. They have people working for them, to send smiles to guys, and even chat with them via MSN, just so that they shell out the money, but it leads nowhere. A few years back it was alright to met a few nice people, but overall, the fake accounts are totally out of control and as a guy you end up wasting your cash for nothing. That's not what men want from a dating site. LavaLife is no longer a good dating site. They are a pathetic shell of their old self. They wont get any more of my money.

I am overweight. I am attractive, outgoing, healthy, funny, intelligent, financially and emotionally stable, etc. I have received 63 matches from within two months. I have not met one yet. Most close out immediately; others never respond. Some women are not up front about their weight or looks...guys say they hate that. I have asked if they could weed out the guys that have no interest in meeting someone who is overweight and they said there is more to relationships than looks...duh???? I have one open communication going...good thing I have some self esteem and a sense of humor...

I decided not to renew membership after 12 months. Although I received a number of matches, none went beyond the open communication stage. The men who really wanted to meet me were almost 20 years older than I and I am not interested in that age disparity.

There is no purpose in having so many reasons to close communication. Who wants to read "I don't feel any chemistry"? Also, I think that there are many more women on the site than men. Although I have no real proof, I think the people on the site have a somewhat conservative bent.

Try it for a few months, but don't waste your on a year's membership.


Mini Online Dating Service Review #5

Reader Review Submitted By: Adriene H.

Rating: 2 (out of 10)

Anyone thinking about using this service should be aware of the fact that 1 in 5 people who fill out the survey are 'unmatchable' according to their current methodology. That means that based on the answers you submitted, you fall outside of the personality categories they have defined and they will not make any attempt to match you. I fell into this one in five. I have to say it is frustrating to spend almost an hour filling out a questionnaire only to find out they somehow consider me a freak. Oh well.

Reader Review Submitted By: Sarah J.
Gender: Female

Rating: 4 (out of 10)

I gave a lot of chances, but by the fourth month I had had it. Net Net: the guys I met weren't attractive at all to me. No one seems to put their picture on till the very end of the process and I think for me, at least, I like to know the person I am emailing sooner. Also I think the question process is stilted. I actually feel I get to know people on much better than I ever did on I decided to quit after about four months. I don't think it works.


Mini Online Dating Service Review #7

Reader Review Submitted By: Maggie S.
Gender: Female
Age: 53
Rating: 3 (out of 10)

I joined in the Fall of 2003. I was given three matches in four months. I communicated via email with only one who did ask me to call. I did not receive his email and by the time I did and replied, he had listed on his choices "geographically too far." The other two matches also listed the geographic distance as too far to pursue. When I contacted and requested that the men that they were matching me up with were too young, I was told that I could not raise the age range - only lower it? And, I was told that this was the only option. Their customer service department offered me one month gratis and during that month I was never offered one match. Surprise, I was unable to reach a live person and and I attempted over and over to reach them. I cancelled my subscription. They are dishonest and a ripoff.

I was only on for about a month. I went on three dates. The first one was OK. He was very nice, but not compatible. The second was a total loser. The third and last was perfect. We didn't have the chemistry; I wish we'd been friends first. AWESOME guy though. We are the best of friends now.

It all depends on how you go into it.

Chin up.
