Meet Japan Lady.com MJL.com A dating service whose Japanese female members are either unavailable or "flake out on you" Internet
*Consumer Suggestion: Solution
The company claims to have many Japanese women as clients. The reality however is quite different. Most of the women are trial members who cannot be reached when you request contact with them. Most of the women have been on the site for the entire duration of my membership which was about nine months. I wanted to relate some of my experiences with the women that I was able to contact.
The first woman I met was here in United States and actually local to me. I had requested several times to meet in a particular area that was close to both of us, but the woman continued to steer me to something that was convenient to her gym which was miles away. She eventually complained that I had the opportunity to meet her but that it was my fault that I wasn't able to do so.
Next, I corresponded and had phone conversations with a woman who lived in Japan. She never seemed to be available, and canceled several of our planned phone conversations. Eventually I had to take a trip back east and she continued to try to set up another phone meeting with me. I told her that I would be able to speak with her in about a week. One week later she was engaged to be married.
Another woman that I had contact with, became more and more difficult to reach by phone claiming that she was not feeling well and so wasn't able to talk to me. Eventually each time I subsequently spoke with her she had less and less time to speak with me. By the time our last phone meeting took place I told her that I was traveling to Japan to meet her. I was never able to reach her by phone again before my trip.
Since I wanted to travel to Japan, I wanted to meet several ladies while I was there. I requested from the organizer of the website to meet several additional women who were either trial members or full members. None of the trial members were available to correspond with me and I did not hear back from the organizer about the other ladies before I eventually canceled my trip for lack of female contacts through the site.
Finally, and main reason I eventually canceled my membership asking for refund which I never received, the woman that I was most interested in and who I had corresponded with for close to two months, cancelled with me one week before my trip. I had spent close to $1000 on a nonrefundable ticket and had booked several hotels in anticipation of meeting this one particular woman. The night before I was going to have my last conversation with her, I received an email telling me that she no longer wanted to see me, without any explanation. My understanding was that this woman had done the same thing to another male subscriber right before I contacted her. This was less than a week before my scheduled trip. I had taken two weeks vacation time to make the trip. All for naught.
I therefore canceled my trip to Japan and wrote the organizer requesting a refund because of my experiences. The organizer refused to refund my money telling me that she worked too hard and that there was no guarantee of me meeting anyone so she would not under any circumstances refund my money.
These women members do not seem particularly sincere nor willing to do much to let you know that they are interested in you. None of the women went out of their way to do anything in terms of planning for my arrival in Japan. I would have to pay for all expenses (hotels, dinners, travel), if I wanted to meet them. This service feels more like a marriage agency (mail order bride) than it does a dating service.
