This value proposition can't be beat. Reminds me of how Match had a companion "friendship" site years ago. Challenges: majority of people think matchmaking is not worth the expense, they will most likely have to spend a huge amount on marketing and they are going to have do deals with several big online players to make the most of their competitive advantage.

A word of caution, I paid thousands to meet the "right" women, educated, well employed like me, of the first 2 neither was available for a relationship ( already dating some one or wanted their old boy friend back) and neither were "well" employed. I want my money back.

Bob if you are not reimbursed for the money elove scammed from you. i am trying to contact others that have been scammed to file a lawsuit. I have a feeling there are hundreds if not thousands. please file a complaint with Mass District attorney. thousands of complaints will make Mass take action

I'd rather not post my name, but I'm a mid-40s bachelor that has dated for about four years and used online dating services. Dissatisfied and disgusted, I went to eLove. The concept is great. They seemingly take a lot of time and attention to "get to know you". After they get you all worked up, they drop the money bomb. $3000! WT!!!??? I "negotiated" my fee down to $2000 but was limited to 6 people.
In retrospect (driving home) I realized how I was pressured into signing. (I am ashamed of how I caved.) However, they promise happiness and they seem so sincere. And there really isn't any other way... What price true love, right?
After I gave her my CC info it was a different tune. THEN they let me know that the matches would be from anywhere in a one hour driving radius. "I want someone local," I said. (For $2000, I ought to get someone local, right?) Nope. You get what you get. They can't make special exceptions.
I got one letter explaining what my one paragragh introductory profile would say and then, three and a half weeks later, I got my first match letter. She lived an hour away. We didn't have a lot in common. Her boyfriend of several years had died about a year ago, and "she was ready" to meet someone. What kind of BS is that! Look, I just want my money back. Heck, I'd take a 50% refund at this point and gladly pay a $1000 penalty for just being stooopid. Seeing as that is very unlikey, I am going to stick it out, meet four more women and GET MY MONEY'S WORTH!
All the dating sites are BS. My opinion, I met the most compatible (intellectually) on EHarmony, I met the most ladies on Match (and the best quality), POF is free-but there are many skanks there. Zioosk is a complete joke. As far as eLove goes; there is no "e" to eLove. THey said they referred not to work by email, only by US mail. WTF???!!! that runs completely counter to what the COO says. A pox on all of them.
