I had used the site two times. Met a younger woman, and lets face it, we all like women that are younger! First time fizzled out, as she was not willing to go to the next step. a meeting in her country. Was very disappointed, quit using the site. I received an email that came through as spam, I took a chance and I responded. I have been alone for several years, and thought maybe, just maybe, I might find a woman that was honest and really looking for a relationship. We exchanged a few letters, but she wanted to do live chat, so we did that for a short time, until I spent the required amount of money, by the site rules, where I could request her personal email address. It took several days for them to complete a ground check on me, and with her permission, I received her personal email address. We "chatted " for a few days and then she expected avery quick meet face to face. I was in the process of getting a Visa to travel to meet her. She grew very impatient, and we ended our communications.
One major problem for the men is that the women use the site for FREE. The more letters they send out to different men, the more money the site makes when the men respond to their letters. Letters cost up to $9 per letter after the first letter. Credits are used up very quickly at those rates. Chatting is reasonable as long as the woman is aware of the cost per minute. The woman I communicated with was not always quick to reply, so the minutes were used up while waiting for a reply.
I made multiple requests to the web site operators regarding my dissatisfaction with their process and I finally received a refund for my last credit purchase. My advice to any men that use the site, inform the woman immediately, that you feel a connection with, that quick chat responses and long letters are more desirable, unless you, as an individual have more money than you know what to do with!!!
