Great Expectations is a matchmaking dating service with more than 35 years of experience that caters to the busy working professional.
Great Expectations has merged today’s technology with old fashioned matchmaking methods to become a leader in the dating industry.
Apparently, one woman paid ,000 for a six month membership and met no one, while the other woman paid ,790 for the (no, seriously) "Marriage Program." Ah, no wonder the expectations were set a bit high.
State law apparently says dating services can't charge more than /month.
Whether or not you agree with the law (and it's not at all clear why such a law is needed), it still seems like these women entered into an arrangement where they knew what they were getting into.
In what world can their be a guarantee that you'll meet someone if there simply are no matches and no one wants to meet you back?
To learn more about Great Expectations call, 866-907-5046 or visit I usually do not fall for sales pitches but this time I was duped.
To further get my interest, I was showed pictures of men that fit my Criteria and those were practically the only men I found in their entire database and even they were non-responsive. I was told that people are to respond within 30 days of your inquiry.
The company, Great Expectations, apparently set expectations a little too high.The service, which started out nearly thirty years ago as one of those video dating services, has moved into the online world in a big way, and apparently thought that let it off the hook of the NY State "Dating Services Law." A judge thought otherwise and is forcing the company to refund the fees of two women, which could open up many, many more lawsuits.The company plans to appeal, but the really odd part of the story is just how much the service cost.If the company promised meetings, that's one thing (and one the woman in the four year program says she was promised dates, so perhaps there's a claim there), but it seems unrealistic to simply expect dates when there's the entire other half o the equation to consider.
While the fees being paid (and the idea of signing up for a four year membership that promises marriage) seems somewhat staggering, especially considering the competition, it just seems like these women made a bad decision in signing up for this service.I believe they have people who are just used to make it seem like there are eligible singles.
