First BEWARE Julie is now working under JULIE FERMAN LLC, but she still the same. Here's my review of Cupid's Coach.
BEWARE of Cupid's Coach. Look them up in the Better Business Bureau, Complaint Board website, Private Complaints website or simply look up "Cupid's Coach complaints". The negative reviews and formal complaints speak for themselves. Join Plenty of Fish and/or OKCupid for FREE. Join MeetUp.com and meet people that way too.
I'm writing an update because I have now received two calls from Julie Ferman pleading with me to take the post down. The first call she asked me if I would change my mind if she offered me free membership. I refused. I wish I would have been smart enough to have researched and read a review like mine or any of the others to have refused the meeting. I do not want anyone else to go through the horrible experience I went through with her representative Courtney Hughes. At the end of the interview when she walked me to the elevator and I had made it crystal clear that I would not be writing a check she said to me "Grace, I don't want to sound like a b*tch, but you really are starting to look 40." I will never forget that. She knew of my impending 40th birthday and knew that a single women would be sensitive and vulnerable to such a comment. I could have answered many things considering she was older than myself, unmarried and had an ugly telephone exchange with her teen age daughter while I was there filling out forms. Instead I told her that I looked 40 because I was turning 40 and that's what 40 looks like and that I was ok with that.
I wrote the post on Yelp to warn or at least arm ladies from what they would be greeted with at Cupid's Coach. Julie Ferman, the owner called me weeks later about my post. Julie said that my experience with Courtney was not how she trained her reps to behave and then when I refused to delete my post she said I was being "vindictive" because she wouldn't fire Courtney, when I had not suggested any such thing. BTW, Courtney is now at Organic Matchmaker.
The second call from Julie was Saturday (12/15/2012), where again she said she wanted me to delete the post because it was causing her to lose clients. I told her once again that her service was one of the worst experiences I have had as a single women. She then said that I should seek therapy for the "emotional scar" that the interview had caused. Again, no one said "emotional scar" it was a truly horrible and hurtful experience. The berating is part of Cupid's Coach tactics as confirmed by Julie's calls. BEWARE READ THE REVIEWS and even the satisfied ones because we know they are phony, like the service. Julie, do not call me anymore, unless it is for advice on how to better serve single people looking for love. I will not change my post. You are not a nice person in my opinion.
Please see Julie's track record by checking out Cupid's Coach and the better business bureau under Cupid's Coach. The name change is a transparent attempt to shake her past performance. See my review and notice how the positive reviews seem or are entirely similar to the ones in this company.
JULIE-please don't contact me to change my review again. The only reason I'm posting is because I received an email from one of your previous clients thanking me for my post and letting me know what you are up to. Shame on you.
Okcupid, match, eharmony and meetup.com for singles groups with similar interests are great ways to meet other singles.
If you need a dating coach, are over 40 check out Bobbi Palmer (DateLikeAGrownUp.com). Bobbi is one of her own success stories.
