Mate 1 dating service complaints

When Telegraph Money spoke to one of Searchmate’s agents, we were told matchmakers would go to “great lengths” to find matches for singles, for example putting up posters in local sailing clubs (if the client listed sailing as a hobby), or even posting advertisements in newspapers. She said she sent several emails to Searchmate’s agents since November but did not hear back.

In the meantime, she contacted the Citizens Advice Bureau, which provided some information on her consumer rights.

After filling in the questionnaire, the man registered for the site and was delighted with the follow-up email he received.

It contained several profiles of highly promising matches all “waiting to contact him”.

One woman who is no stranger to the various pitfalls of dating services is Aileen Edwards, a 61-year-old health worker who cares for dementia sufferers. In her spare time she enjoys theatre, swimming and the great outdoors.

She says she “isn’t looking for a major spark” but is searching for a man with a good sense of humour to share her life with. The first blow was when she fell victim to a scammer on an online dating site.

The site explained that this was down to most of the gentlemen who were active within her area “going on hold”, meaning they could no longer be contacted.

Searchmate offered to upgrade Aileen to its “Platinum” membership, a service via which customers are assigned their very own matchmaker who will proactively look for potential matches outside Searchmate’s client base.

I will tell hubby that I am not too sure – to him that’s as good as saying yes, ha, ha, and I bet he will be straight on the internet looking for a willing girl. I admired her top and she said it had a designer label. In two seconds she pulled the top over her head and showed me the label – she was right. We have agreed to let my hubby think he has set everything up before we meet at home. I didn’t realize it was possible until I was deleting some files and came across this saved text.… continue reading »
