*Consumer Comment: Really now
Then I found out another thing: the most important match, i.e., race and physical features that folks are looking for in their dates, were not matched FIRST. Unbelievable. Everyone knows that for most folks, it's all about the looks first. Everyone knows that you can match up socially BUT if you're black, big and beautiful and he's looking for white, tall and toned, it will never work from the get-go. So now when I get so-called matches, the first thing I look at is what they're physically looking for in their date. I'm doing a lot of work that I thought I had paid Match.com to do. Ditto with smokers v. non-smokers, drinkers v. non-drinkers, children, etc. These characteristics are deal-breakers for most folks.
Also seems a lot of folks just leave those fields blank. Match.com shouldn't allow that. I hate that--it's wasting everybody's time. Everybody should know whether or not they like a certain ethnicity for their date--this is no time to be "politically correct." So fake. And everybody should know what body types turn them on. Again, fake. Casting the net wide just looking for anybody and hoping to get somebody is not "matching" at all and a waste of time. I might as well be on a free dating site.
Finally, the hard cross-selling of Chemistry.com is ridiculous. If I wanted to use Chemistry.com I would have gone to their site and paid them. Innocently I answered one of their flashing questions and the next thing I know, I was getting bombarded with emails from Chemistry.com 2, 3 times a day. It took me a week to get them to stop emailing me with so-called "matches."
When I spoke to Match.com about these glaring problem with their match-making, and the unwanted bombardment from Chemistry.com, they seemed surprised that I had a problem with getting matches that aren't looking for persons with my PHYSICAL characteristics. They responded by making me free offers to stay. What a crock of ----. I cancelled my renewal immediately. Don't go for the madness, stay away from paid dating websites.....
