Mini Online Dating Service Review #1

Dating Site: eHarmony.com
Reader Review Submitted By: T. G.
Gender: Female

Rating: 1 (out of 10)

Review
My brother wanted me to log onto eharmony to see his profile and give him feedback. Since then, I have been spammed to death by this pile of trash called eharmony. I've tried closing my account and it is impossible. I've sent emails with no response. The site won't give me any of the options the directions say are there. This is not a user friendly program and they don't give a care about you at all. IF I were a single person, I would not consider using this place. They are trash and I think they will have to be sued to stop emailing me.

Mini Online Dating Service Review #2
Dating Site: eHarmony.com

Rating: 5 (out of 10)

Review
I have been an eharmony member for two months and one week (and counting). Besides having to screen out the men who don't give their real names, or those who give alias e-mail addresses, if you actually meet and talk with a real person, it's a bit like a job interview. Then, if you actually survive two dates with a total stranger, you realize that all those things that you skipped over so joyfully in the personality profile reveal themselves in ugly detail. Read that personality profile carefully girlfriends, because it's very accurate - and you are in the driver's seat at that point. - from an experience eharmony user.

Mini Online Dating Service Review #3
Dating Site: eHarmony.com
Reader Review Submitted By: CD Bailey
Gender: Female

Rating: 1 (out of 10)

Review
First, for all my time and effort, I was matched with only 2 men in a 30 day period. So, I must ask, myself, what's wrong? Is it that men are not interested in professional women making high 6 figures? I guess not. Second, the impression is a match by personality, but that isn't toally true. No man will respond without seeing a picture first. if you refuse, then they cut off communication also. Not that I have physical flaws, but I was really hoping that my person was more important than my face/body. Seems like I was wrong again. It is also not a good sight for non-Caucasians. There were few African Americans, etc... Overall, it was not pleasant experience to be told you are wonderful, but let's see the picture.

Mini Online Dating Service Review #4
Dating Site: eHarmony.com
Reader Review Submitted By: Susan Hedman
Gender: Female
Age: 47
Rating: 4 (out of 10)

Review
While I found the in depth questionaire to be useful in determining personalized matches, I ended up feeling rather helpless as I waited for eharmony to make matches and for matches to respond. I received many matches, but few chose to communicate. This left me feeling rejected and lead to an overall negative experience. I also wondered what percent of matches were members and actually could respond. Being matched to non-members is not useful. I wrote to eharmony with my concerns and received boilerplate responses from their customer service that did little to solve the problem.

Mini Online Dating Service Review #5
Dating Site: American Singles
Reader Review Submitted By: David Glenn
Gender: Male
Age: 41
Rating: 1 (out of 10)

Review
Every other month some woman not of USA birth emails me via American Singles. I pay the money to enable myself to read the email not knowing who it is from. I respond but never hear back from them. It makes me wonder if they are shills for the American Singles service.

Now I have some Russian chick who says her primary languguage is English and that she lives in a small town in NY asking for my home address. Makes me think this is some kind of way of trolling for information to steal my identity. Her profile says that she grew up in Ecology. If I could see the profile of the person before I have to pony up $25.00 to read the email, I would never give these type of women a second thought and definitely wouldn't sign up again.

I cannot recommend this service at all.

Mini Online Dating Service Review #6
Dating Site: eHarmony.com
Reader Review Submitted By: Karen Bushey
Gender: Female
Age: 48
Rating: 1 (out of 10)

Review
I have been a member of eHarmony.com for almost 6 months. I am an attractive, low maintenance, 48 year old woman. I am fun, active, love the outdoors, etc... In six months, eHarmony.com has matched me with only three men. The first match was found immediately, (of course, they want your subscriber money). This match lived 175 miles away, and for a month would not take the time to come meet me in person. I finally closed the match for that reason. The second and third match never responded to any communication. The point I am trying to make is, I AM NOT HARD TO MATCH, and eHarmony.com has only found THREE matches for me in SIX months. To say the least, I will not be renewing my subscription to eHarmony.com, and I think all the hype is a scam. I have been much more happy with Match.com, which is a lot cheaper, and I have been out with several great guys. If I were you, don't waste your money on eHarmony.com.

Mini Online Dating Service Review #7
Dating Site: Match.com
Reader Review Submitted By: Stephanie Smith
Gender: Female
Age: 43
Rating: 4 (out of 10)

Review
It's important to do a search on your profile to make sure that it appears in the search criteria. I found my profile did not appear 2 weeks after becoming a subscriber. I spent great deal of time with their customer support and the problem is not resolved. Also had technical problem with my photo. Based upon customer support information, some profiles do not appear when utilizing search tool and it seems to be at the discretion of Match.com.

Mini Online Dating Service Review #8
Dating Site: LavaLife
Reader Review Submitted By: Jim Geyer
Gender: Male
Age: 43
Rating: 2 (out of 10)

Review
I agree with the review published here but would like to emphasize a few items. One, LavaLife is not well written - is crashes my system a lot, is very slow, and not easy to use. My biggest annoyance is that it costs a lot to use. In order to meet someone, they charge for both chatting and email - these charges can add up very fast and you will easily find yourself paying more then the monthly charge sites. The single biggest problem is if you buy a chat and have to leave before your time is up... you lose the rest. For example, if you buy an hour chat and only use 30 minutes, you lose the other 30 minutes - what a scam! From my experience, my advice is to use one of the other sites.
