There are even 2 postings (in my age group of 40-50 yr olds) who are EXPIRED.Please, do not give Great Expectations your trust or your money.
DFW, TEXAS -- This is to warn all you single girls out there about this dating service company.They are not out to sell it, as a matter of fact all member files remain locked once you leave for the day, but they run your credit to see how much money they can get you for. They say the fee does depend on the length of your membership. You can have 6 people with a 12 month membership and they all can be paying anywhere from 5 to 50, depending on their credit and how much of a fight they put into the 2 hour interview. SCHAUMBURG -- You are offered the standard 3 business days to cancel your contract (you MUST include Saturday as this center is open Saturdays) yet, I was told I was not allowed to look at the database until AFTER your video and pics are done. I was told the large upfront fee (00 - 00) was all inclusive only to learn, there is a 0 maintenance fee to the database host every 6 months, and a 0 fee to upgrade your photos to look like the quality you are shown in your sales pitch.If you though buying a car had some ruthless salespeople, try dealing with the Relationship Specialists. Once you become a member, you are invited to join in the events they have. Even the staff that goes to the events has to pay (and they don't get reimbursed). Aside from the background checks and the events, GE is no different than match.com, plenty of fish, perfect match and all the other online dating sites out there, aside from the amount of money they get from you. I was denied an appointment within the three days hearing the photographer was "booked." Coincidence? Since then, I have found profiles on line w/o photos and w/o videos. I was told there were 100s (hundreds) of profiles in the age range I specified to select from.When you walk in, they give you a screener which asks for your personal information and some useless dating information.The only thing theyre after on that form is your social security number.To upgrade to global (you can select and be seen by all the other members in the United States, approx 56 centers) is an additional cost.To have a V-Gram which is a little email with your picture on it is another few hundred dollars.It has been more than 4 months since I joined and those men who I was told were "inactive" by electing to "freeze" their accounts are STILL inactive.I repeat: 60% of the database is on perpetual INACTIVE.I have checked weekly since that initial review to find little variance.Worse, I was shown 8 profiles during my sales pitch, 2 beautiful, seemingly smart, business women (to show I wasn't alone in making this BIG spending decision) and 6 attractive gentlemen.
