    The Good

    The site had a robust search engine.

    Each profile had one large photo that was viewable for free.

    The voice feature was nice. Under a person’s photo, there was a Flash player that let you hear the person’s actual voice. A far cry from video but innovative and appreciated, nonetheless.

    Full membership was free for women.

    The Bad

    Expensive! Mate1.com charged more per month than wealthy dating sites. It was double the price of “millionaire” dating site WealthyMen.com!

    Photo albums could not be accessed for free (paid members only).

    Tiny text and crowded navigation bars made Mate1.com a hassle to navigate. Larger links/buttons would go a long way toward improving site navigation and user experience.

    Although the search was robust, the “Your Matches” tab seemed broken. It gave me women from all over the world (not one from my city) and they didn’t even fit my age (my age was not within their desired age range). “Your Matches” was a misnomer.

    Most attractive women on Mate1.com were listed as “in a relationship.” While the honesty is appreciated, wouldn’t these profiles be useless to men seeking dates and serious relationships?

    The Ugly

    I could not find the monthly price anywhere.

    They only listed a 3-day trial for $1.95.

    When I clicked on a tiny link called “Terms of Membership” it stated the following in small, light-blue text:

    “If You do not cancel your Trial before the end of the specified Trial period, You will be automatically upgraded to Full Member status and billed or rebilled at a rate of $49.95.”

    Automatically “upgraded” at a rate of $49.95 per month?

    I would not want to be a customer service rep in their call center when a person who didn’t read the fine print gets that surprise on their credit card bill!

    Let me guess… they get a lot of chargebacks? Oh, their “Terms of Membership” have them covered (in ALL CAPS, no less):

    “YOU AGREE THAT IF YOU FALSELY REPORT CHARGES MADE TO YOUR CREDIT CARD TO BE UNAUTHORIZED OR FRAUDULENT AND ATTEMPT TO HAVE SAID CHARGES REVERSED BY YOUR BANK, YOU WILL BE LIABLE TO MATE1.COM FOR THE FULL AMOUNT OF THE CHARGES PLUS ALL PROCESSING AND PENALTY FEES INCURRED BY MATE1.COM IN DISPUTING THE CHARGEBACK.”

    It’s interesting (and telling) that the chargeback clause was emphasized with such vigor.

    Seriously, though. Burying the actual price in the fine print? That’s something I would expect from fly-by-night dirtbags, not an online business with over 4 million visitors in May, 2008. Poor form.

    The Despicable

    On the page where one submits credit card details, it showed a girl’s face and basic details. It was not just any girl – it was a cute girl in my area whom I had selected for my Hotlist. Near her, the words “ONLINE NOW” and “LET’S CHAT” were flashing.

    Lucky me, I thought! Pretty girl from my Hotlist is online now and wants to chat with me?

    Strange, though… It was 9:00, Monday morning (not a typical time for productive individuals to be on a dating site).

    When I went back to the profile search, she was offline. In fact, there was nobody online in my area at the time.

    I returned to the credit card page. It was another girl (a profile I had not even viewed). Again, “ONLINE NOW” and “LET’S CHAT” were flashing.

    Only then did I realize that the flashing graphics were animated banners that had nothing to do with the profile. Nobody was online and nobody wanted to chat with me. The proximity of the banners, however, gave me that impression.

    To me, that smacked of deception.

    It gets worse…

    As mentioned above, I created my profile at an odd hour with zero people online in my area. I wanted to check out the prices and profiles before investing time into creating a detailed profile or uploading photos. In other words, the profile was basically empty, had no photo and nobody in my area was online at the time.

    Strangely, I already had one new email (just minutes after creating my blank profile)! When I clicked on it, it said:

    “Want to read your email? It could change your life.
    -send & receive email
    -enjoy live online chat
    -see who’s viewed your profile
    -listen to voice recordings
    -view additional photos
    3 day trial – $1.95″

    Change my life?

    No. At that point, I doubted that it would.

    It definitely changed my opinion of Mate1.com, however, from bad to worse. Playing on a person’s emotions is despicable.

    Worth Visiting?

    No.

    Worth Subscribing?

    No.
