This is an open letter I wrote to Match. Enough said. Steer far, far away. Complete waste of hard-earned $$. The 1st paragraph is their statement on the FAQ section.
"Match.com does not send members misleading communications, including notifications, emails, or winks. However, sometimes you'll receive a message from a Match.com member, only to receive a "Profile Not Found" error when you try to look at their profile. Or you'll be notified that you've received a wink, only to find that it's disappeared once you sign in. In both of these cases, the member who contacted you has, for whatever reason, hidden their profile or may no longer have a valid account with us."
The above is a statement made by Match.com in the FAQ section. It is absolutely an outright lie! You MUST be well aware of this! The above is the reason why I cancelled. You cannot be trusted. Why is it that ONLY when I was NOT a member (before and after) I suddenly was the most popular guy in the world, getting winks, flirts, hugs, messages, etc. etc. Beyond belief. Only to finally sign up and nothing was really there. I received email after email from YOU telling me about all these people who wrote me messages and were checking me out and were interested in me and so forth. From YOU... so to blame your elusive members who allegedly spend their lives doing the "wink and run"... is ludicrous. You really need to stop misleading and scamming people. Truly, for a site as popular and well-known as yours, you should be ashamed of yourselves. And for the record, I have spoken to several other people who have not pursued memberships for the exact same reasons. Extremely disappointed with your business practices.
