THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER - Oct 19 - Mary Kane, an 85-year-old widow, said she felt lonely last month when she contacted Philadelphia Singles, a matchmaking service, seeking a companion after her husband died in May. She said she was pressured into signing the contract. "They said: 'If you walk out of here, that's it. You can't have second thoughts and come back and sign up,'" said Kane, who believed the firm did not come close to living up to its offer. Kane isn't the first to accuse Philadelphia Singles and its affiliates of bad business practices. "Generally speaking, women over 60 are demographically, statistically at odds with both matchmaking and dating," said Mark Brooks, CEO of the Internet Dating Excellence Association. "At this kind of price point and for her demographic, it's an impossible job. They have no business taking her on."
