Cougarlife.com / Not worth the money, not worth the time

Contact information:

The site charges the same price as premier dating site like Match.com and Jdate, but the quality is crap, and here's why:

1) Spam: There are probably more profiles that are porn spam than real people. There is a report button, and customer service told me they are actively monitoring, however, people I've reported over a week ago are still on.

2) Selection: There isn't a large selection to choose from. Most of the profiles of the women have only a picture and not a single sentence written by them. I suspect they are spam, but who knows.

3) No chat: Websites that charge $40/month have chat. This website does not. Chat worked well from me on other dating websites - In fact it works better than sending inbox messages.

4) False "Online" indicator: Every profile says the member is online. How can ALL members all be online ALL the time? This is probably done to give users the illusion that other users are active when in fact the website is doing very poorly. Customer service told me it's a glitch that they're trying to fix, but how long does it take to fix a small problem?

Many small business starting out on the web use fake profiles to get the website going. When I first joined I got a few messages from other "users" who were saying hello and asking me to tell them about myself saying if they like it they will respond. In other words, don't expect a response. It had all the markings of such in-house created profiles "welcoming" me to the site...

And now to the most outrageous one..
5) While on the phone with customer service discussing all the above, the rep said, "I'm looking through your inbox and it seems like you've been getting messages from real members". I was not asked for my permission to go through my e-mails. Clearly they don't respect their users' privacy.

Bottom line: Not worth the money. Not worth the time.

    This has to be the worst dating website ever. I have been on it for about a week and all I have received are emails for webcam, online pictures, and other freaky dating sites. Don't waste your money. If you do you will get ###ed, but not by any of the girls. I also emailed them about their crappy service and how I wanted a refund because of it and you will not get a refund. What they will give is a bunch of ### and excuses about the spamming and how they can't refund you. Again don't waste your money. Don't even join.
