Over 7-8 years, they delivered Top Quality Canvas Prints (over 30 Large Prints). On the last order, the wood used for the frame was too heavy to hang on the wall (3 small prints), and Customer Service offered zero value when they finally responded to my email. The 3 prints are a total waste of money. The order prior to this last order took extra weeks before I received it. Poor Quality Product PLUS Poor Customer Service EQUALS Lost customer.

People always state that dating websites are full of scammers from around the world, but this site is a scam itself.
One of the Profile Visibility options is "Women looking for Men" and this option was removed from my profile. The only way to remove the option is for the site to specifically program the options through the system settings. This is a practice by thaifriendly.com to control who sees who on the website, which is also discriminatory.

Subsequent to the review, thaifriendly.com blocked my account, stating that they received complaints about my account. Since I do not initiate email communications to people on dating sites, especially international sites where I do not live, and my replies to emails received are positive, Thaifriendly is a LIAR. Or does Thaifriendly.com view all Black people as Nigerian Scammers. Thaifriendly.com definitely didn't view my account as a scammer when I was a previous paying customer (and still didn't initiate emails to people). Appears to be a RACIST SITE.

Hi!

Thanks for your feedback. We give members the option to hide specific genders from being able to view their profile. This increases the privacy for members and allows them to only be contacted by genders that they are interested in. I notice that you complain that there is no option to hide "Women looking for Men" from your profile. If your profile is set to male and you are looking for women then it would not make sense to block this group of people from being able to see you so it is not available. If you change your preferences to looking for men or transexuals then you should then be able to block women looking for men from viewing your profile. Let us know if this clears things up for you alternatively you can contact us if you are still not sure about something. Thanks for using ThaiFriendly - the biggest Thai dating site in the land of smiles!

Similar to most online Interracial dating sites, its customers/profiles include a high proportion of African-american Females, and very, very few non-African-american Females, therefore the site has a high proportion of Inactive Customer Profiles. Unfortunately, a high proportion of Females's Profiles lack personal qualities that would attract a diverse dating partner. Example, over-weight, multiple children, bad photos (dress to impress in a dating photo that markets oneself), lack of education, incomplete profiles, no photos, etc.

The above review is based on me creating a profile, and then reviewing profiles in the Los Angeles Area, and subsequently, the United States. Creating a Paid Account will result in throwing money away.

The 1-Star rating for this site is based on the technology for the website and the app, which operate without errors.

I am comparing BlackCupid.com to a long list of dating sites targeting African-Americans (including BlackPeopleMeet.com).
Pros
The technology (website and app) work
Good site for African-Americans with many children (if both partners have kids and seeking a partner with kids)
Good site if you are interested in casual dating, but nothing more
Cons
Lack of Quality and Active Profiles
Profiles with no photos
Becoming a Paid Account Member is a form of throwing money away.
Expect to receive email notifications of people viewing your profile from South Africa, Kenya, and other areas.
This is a generic site designed for African-Americans, but African-Americans are not a generic ethnic group

The above review is based on me creating a profile, and then searching the Los Angeles area, and subsequently, the United States.

The objective of dating sites is to make money, and dating sites are data driven decision-making scams, specifically, POF.com is the leader of the group.

1. Excessive number of scammers on POF, and based on the trends of scammers that I experienced, I have a good reason to believe that they were POF induced scammers.

2. The purpose of using an online dating site to be exposed to people outside of your circle, BUT POF determines who sees your profile and which profiles that you see. I view hundreds of profiles profiles, but the only women who viewed mine were athletically-challenged women and I hadn't viewed any of them. Using a photo of me dancing would attract women because most women like to dance therefore a photo of a male dancing would certainly attract their curiosity.

3. I have sent emails within POF, and POF blocked the emails, preventing people from receiving them... I know because of tests that we conducted. POF manipulates your communications.

4. POF's "Meet Me" displayed 4 people selecting me, and minutes later, it indicated 3 people (there were no scammers at this time). As a result, you don't know how people are interested in you.

5. During research, two profiles in the same geographic area and age (different ethnicity), did not have access to the same set of profiles to view.

Scam 1: Per a phone reservation with Expedia.com, they sold me a non-refundable air travel ticket with no seats available, and then when the seats were made available, the only seats available cost an additional $260.00. So the choices were, lose all my money on a non-refundable ticket or be scammed by Expedia and Cathay Pacific for an additional $260.00.

Scam 2: I paid a premium for a private sedan with driver for transfers between the airport and hotel with Expedia, whose contracted supplier attempted to drop me off on the street in front of the hotel (not at the entrance to a hotel) AND drop me off at the wrong hotel in a minibus (not a private sedan).

Scam 3: It's one thing to drive to the wrong hotel, but failing to take the passenger to the front door of the hotel reflects the motives and integrity of Expedia and it's suppliers

There are numerous Online Travel Businesses, Buyer Beware of Expedia.com!

I wrote a review on Yelp that appeared for over a year, and then Yelp removed the review based on a so called "conflict of interest". Reality, the review was negatively impacting the subject of the review (a college), and the college with its government backing had Yelp remove the review.

So ask yourself, how many reviews submitted to yelp are actually displayed on yelp. SO if you read 10 good reviews on yelp, you have to wonder how many negative reviews did yelp refuse to post.

I have subscribed to match.com a few times as a paid subscriber. Being aware that Match segments their subscribers more than other sites, I performed a test by changing my zip code to different local zip codes within a 3-mile radius and the females who viewed my profile and daily matches varied by zip code, therefore just putting your profile on match does not mean your profile is automatically accessible to everyone.

Match.com is the No. 1 Dating Site (note that match is an advertiser to the sites that state that match.com is No. 1), BUT Match.com is the No. 1 Scammer based on my experiences:

(1) Match.com continuously gave me Daily Matches of women who are no longer on the site, women who did not post photos, and women residing outside of my geographic area. Match takes your money and delivers what you don't want.

(2) Based on singles that I know personally that are no longer on match, the site uses their profiles as if they are still on match.

(3) Failing to show a photo is a red flag that indicates that a person is either married, a criminal, or is hiding something, therefore delivering those profiles to me through Daily Matches leaves a red flag about Match.com. From my documentation, some days included 8 out of 10 Daily Matches with no photos.

(4) Most of the women (95%) on the site that I communicated with were not exactly honest about numerous aspects of their profile. Some are obvious - age, race, body size

(5) I had Scammers view, Like, Favorite, and email me. Profiles of Scammers are fairly easy to identify, but Match.com attracted a good number of them.

From experience, you have to date/meet at least ten people on match.com before you find someone decent, not perfect, honest or your match, just decent.

As Match.com receives your money, Match.com gives you the impression that you will fall within that small percentage of couples who really connect for a long-term relationship, but I have been on match.com a few times, and like most people, I am not one of the very, very few that they advertise to reach a Long-term Relationship.

Don't be Fooled!

I joined as a Male seeking Females (and there were no mistakes in my typing or preferred gender). The matches that the site gave me were men. IF the site can't get that correct, why would I trust them with anything else! Deleted Account in less than 12 hours.

Residing in a heavily populated Singles (Divorced, Widowed, Never Married) Westside area of Los Angeles, eHarmony fails to supply "Matches" for 2 straight days, and when producing "matches", we didn't share a lifestyle, nor are the majority of Matches" even in Los Angeles.

EHarmony recommended that I modify my criteria, as if they are paying me to fit into their database. Then, eHARMONY UNILATERALLY CHANGED MY PROFILE CRITERIA to produce "matches", which did not match the type of person that I am seeking. It was obvious that eHarmony changed my profile... so I changed my profile preferences back to my criteria... YOU CAN NOT TRUST eHarmony.

Also, some of the matches that eHarmony produced in West Los Angeles weren't even Current Subscribers of eHarmony (because I am in contact with them on other sites), which proves that eHarmony is running a SCAM.

EHarmony claims to be a "relationship" site that uses psychological information to match it's subscribers. I have researched over 25 dating/relationship sites, and have not found ONE person who had anything positive or neutral to say about eHarmony.

Since eHarmony produces matches that don't fit your criteria, it is an excellent dating site for casual and serial dating, don't expect to get your time and money's worth on eHarmony.

Over the previous 2 years, I have registered and reviewed over 30 dating sites, and found Spark.com to be in the very lower echelon of dating sites due to failing to attract a large number of people to register, and value for the money.

First, of the sample of women 40-63 years of age in the large metropolitan Los Angeles area, there are insufficient number of people registered on the site and a large percentage haven't used the system during the current 2015 year. Further more, most have not completed their profile. Example, I have found that a large percentage of women of dating sites (US and International dating sites) indicate that they like to dance. From a search on spark.com, the results include ONE WOMAN.

Second, from a "value for your money perspective", dating sites to Singles is like cruise vacations to Singles. Since cruises are targeted to couples, therefore the larger the ship the more Singles onboard and the larger the ship, the more diverse the lifestyles of the Singles onboard. Spark.com is similar to a small ship... too few people to interact with; little value for the money.

There are other dating sites that state that you can communicate; SEND and receive emails at no cost. Other sites that state that, actually allow you to SEND and receive emails without paying.

Tip for consumers:
Setting up a profile and photos on dating sites is time consuming! Most other dating sites are superior.
