I am a successful, educated, beautiful woman who has difficulty meeting great men because I am a single mother who spends my time mothering. I thought that Elite would be able to help me meet men of equal caliber who met my preferences and religious requirements. My matchmaker Summer was able to set me up on a date with a very nice gentleman for my first date who I got along very well with, but later found did not meet my explicit requirements that were outlined in my matchmaking profile. Elite continued to send proposed matches of men who did not remotely meet my requests, so I questioned them again as to whether they had the men that I was looking for. Their blatant disregard of my parameters caused me to question whether there was any intention whatsoever to match me up with someone who met my criteria. I asked for a refund and they refused, and when I talked to their Director she assured me that they had many men who met my criteria. I have not received any con
tact from them in 5 months, and believe that Elite is just a scam to collect large service fees from individuals with the intent of haphazardly throwing "matches" at them hoping something will stick.

I am a single mother who made an investment to help facilitate a dating life that would offer safety through background checks, and efficiency through effective matchmaking. What I received was a monthly payment that I have continued to pay, and the absence of any service whatsoever. I have seen several other clients mentioning working with attorneys but believe that the most effective way to battle a corporate entity with no integrity is via a combined effort class action. I would encourage anyone interested in pursuing a joint effort to contact me @ I just believe that if they are unwilling to offer their services, the LEAST they could do is refund money for services unrendered.

    Sorry it did not work for you but it for most of the members I know, maybe the issue is with you. From your review it sounds like you were too picky, that what happens when you stay locked up in the home with the kids for too long, you gain childish expectations. Stop belittling a great company.

    I have been a member of this service for the past 15 months. I originally signed up for a year service but I haven't found anyone within the year. I thought it would be best to sign up again because I did have some good luck with the dating. I met 9 girls within the year face to face and some of them actually lasted for a couple dates, one even two months. I admit that I am a difficult guy to set up (not the most main stream). They work with me, and help me make myself more dateable. They are not afraid to tell you the truth and work with people very well. The woman that they have in the service have all been suggested to me according to my specifications, and if they are not, it is only minor issues and not major ones. I feel like the service has been good to me, and the women I date also have told me that they were pleased with the service. One woman I dated wasn't pleased with the service and said I was her first date she had face to face and she can't get a good date with them. I don't blame the company for this, because I really wanted to end that date before it began. I don't see how anyone would want to date this woman. Most of the time when I read negative complaints about this service I think of this date and it reminds me that some people are just very hard to match up with to begin with. All in All I feel it is a good service, worth a second year of membership...

    I’m so happy I finally decided to walk into the Phoenix office. Gia was very nice and VERY polite. It’s not easy to just meet some stranger and give them a two hour interview about the person’s life and background. Gia made it look very simple. I’ve never been this happy with any other service at this price.

    About a week and a half later, Gia called me with a few different girls for me to date. All of them were amazing and in terms of ideas, likes and dislikes but still weren’t marriage material for me. The last girl however, was the one girl I never thought I could get. She was too perfect. Now she’s my wife.

    This is my advice to anyone out there who wants a serious relationship. Check this company out ASAP. You won’t be disappointed.

    Ok, now I know that you truly are lying about this company 'hotmama'. You have the same user name here and on a different site with the same garbage review. BUT, you have a different name on this page on this site than you do on a different page on this same site. You just went down ten pages in my book. YOU are a TOTAL SCAM, not the company that you accused of being. Not the company that helped me find my husband and helped thousands of other people in similar ways. You must really have no life. You SAY you spend most of your time mothering. However you probably spend all your time making up crap about different companies or even people. Then you take all your garbage and post it on the web. That's pretty low.

    But I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt and take your word for it that you are divorced with kids. If that's the case, then no wonder you're divorced. You're ex probably couldn't stand such a liar and a bitter person anymore so he left. Big surprise. I would've done the same thing. I was also divorced so I know it's hard but I'm not a little cry baby like you. I accepted my loss and moved on like a normal person. That's why I eventually got re-married. I'm mature and I don't have an enormous ego like you. Not only your ex husband didn't want to be with someone like you but I can see why no other normal man in the whole world would want to be with you. I pity your kids that they have a mother like you.

    For anyone who wants to read my beautiful story, please go to the other page where the liar above posted her lie.

    If they're sucha fine upstanding company then why don't they just refund my money, since they can't produce a single candidiate for me to even reject?? I suspect that Verenia, Jen and Kim may be sitting around making up pretty stories to post on this site instead of doing what we paid them to do.

    This company has my full respect. Three months went by after I joined in which I did not receive a single call or e-mail. I complained to them and explained how frustrating it was to sit and wait for such a long period of time and still not see results. They told me that I was right and that they completely understand my point. I wasn’t even going to bring it up, but when they offered me a 100% refund with an additional 20% bonus for wasting my time I agreed. Two weeks later I checked my account balance and saw that a $4200 deposit was put into my account. They weren’t right for me which is ok. But what I’m really impressed with is the fact that they were honest, reliable and very professionally courteous. They offered a refund and a bonus and actually delivered without me having to harass them. You can tell that this company is run by the most amazing people who care.

    I read all of these complaints online, and instead decided to trust my instinct and the advice of other members who are now married.

    I met with Suzie, who told me that although I was divorced and in my 40s, there was still a large dating pool available for me. After dating men on I was more than ready to meet people who had been screened.

    Suzie calmed my nerves and I signed the contract, which turned out to be the best thing I could have ever done because now, I am typing this in the condo I share with my husband Paul.

    My matchmaker Emily told me that I needed to trust her and the process and at first I was so hesitant to go out with the guy she suggested at first. I did, and although we didn't end up dating, he really was a great guy and I started to see the problem I was having with When you hire a matchmaker they know YOU and Elite delivered on finding me 3 dates all of whom I shared much in common with.

    My third date was with Paul, and we sat in at Smith and Wollensky's from 7:30 untill midnight talking and laughing. We have been inseperable since.

    All of the people who complained obviously were not open to the experience. A matchmaker cannot perform miracles, they can only work with what you give them. I am so happy I worked with Elite and thank God every day for my wonderful husband.

    Any nay-sayers out there can listen to my story and hopefully realize that had they given less constraints and more trust they might have found happiness too. It was the best money I have ever ever spent. Thanks so much Suzie and Emily!
