I just joined and I don't even want to participate. IT sounds like a big rip off. Has anyone thought of doing a class action lawsuit in TX against them?

Kristine , 21 Apr 8: I know somebody who is trying to sue already in Texas. Write me an email and I will send him your email so that you can talk. My email is klshirk msn. I hope that this really helps you. DD , 17 Jan 3: When I spoke with the "interviewer" on the phone I explained that it's a rare day off and I don't feel like getting dressed up today, can I go as I am? There were at least 5 comments made about how I look when I come in, as the GE staffer said, "You never know who you'll run into in here. I'm not ugly, I look okay without makeup. I asked the question, then I was made to feel less than whole because of the way I came in.
I gave up dating people that would make me feel less of myself 20 years ago, why would I fork over 5K to have someone tell me the same crap? What a set up and what a bunch of lies. There was a man there, very tall, nice looking.
I decided on the way home that he is likely a GE "plant", to entice me in. Probably on the inactive list. I will not keep my saturday appointment for 11 am. I will post my impressions wherever I can, and I am glad it cost me only my a ding on my credit report which was incidentally hit while I was in the office or shortly thereafter. I did not sign up as I would not give them a full credit card payment up front. What a crock of crap.
Thanks for adding to the feeling I had that this is just may be a complete sham. Zero in common and IJL can pound sand too. I am looking into the class action suit info online about them. I used this dating service and I met my wife. Four thousand dollars is a small price to pay for meeting someone that you will be with for the rest of your life I subscribed to it a few years ago, and after 7 months I saw her profile and we went on a date Bradley , 23 Feb Wrote a check - signed the contract and went home.
Interested to see the reaction from the company when they get the "stopped payment" check in a few days I'm sure that they'll try to enforce the contract, send it to a collection agency, etc Any Thoughts Anyone on how they'll react to the "stop Payment"? I don't think they'll go to court. GE is nothing if not practical, and will not throw dollars away in a quest they know is futile. My guess is they'll call and try to coax you back, possibly even try to intimidate you with the charge that you signed a contract, but as you intimate, their bark will be worse than their bite.
I've been a GE member for too long to have any hope of getting my money back, so I'll just offer my perspective on the experience. I've gone out on several dates and the women have been pleasant, but as yet, no sparks have flown. I've had a fair number of women contact me, but thus far only one who has aroused my interest. In its favor I would say that after paying all this money, GE members generally try harder. Some would say if you ultimately connect with that one person it's all worth the money, and yes, it would be, but the issue is that GE is an incredibly overpriced service.
If all ends well, the money becomes an afterthought, but in what percentage of cases does that actually happen? So, my money is gone, but might as well make the best of it.
From my experience thus far I don't see any special advantage to GE over a Match. GE offers a selectivity, but it pretty much amounts to selectivity based on income. I'll admit, I got sucked in, but as someone once said, "if you have a lemon, make lemonade. Mary , 25 Feb 5: The only thing certain about Great Expectations is once they bill your credit card you will never get a refund. The Dallas TX franchise is a total fraud. They advertise "lots of available professional men" in the Dallas area. You won't see or find them. The closest search their web service has to Dallas is a miles. The large majority of these men aren't availabe and probably don't exist at all.
Their contract is evidently written to prevent any refund pro-rated or not. You can't view any candidates until you have your photo session. Don't make the same mistake I did. If you do, don't expect any help from these scam artist via the BBB in trying to get a refund. Isaac , 6 Mar 4: I had no idea what kind of service this was. I was already a bit on edge from having them call me fairly often. I skipped our first meeting. I just got called again today and they pushed me to get an interview in tommorrow.
They kept saying they had "lovely ladies" etc etc and man - i felt like I was talking to a pimp. She said to bring 2 forms of ID and my credit card and said the word "selective" many times. Hey, im pretty easily flattered, but i didnt say anything relatively amusing so i was a bit taken back by that strange response. Also, FYI, they called themselves "Minneapolis Singles" very ungoogable so i did a google search on their address to discover they were really great expectations.
Kelly , 6 Mar I'm really surprised to see all of these negative comments. I met my husband through GE last year. I was meeting a lot of men that seemed to be playing around before this service. I had a lot of wonderful dates with men that actually wanted a relationship, which was pretty foreign to me.

My last first date was with the man I just married last week. To me the 5k I spent has been completely worth it. Kelly, it's wonderful when it works, but I wonder what the percentages are on that? If GE is as "great"as it claims to be, why not some leeway for those people for whom it has not lived up to "expectations? GE are still rip-offs.

We want to know how long your marriage will last when it is based on nothing but exclusive bucks. I was lied to and scammed. Sorry, chick, but no marriage is worth the suffering of others. See ya on the singles side when you are divorced, chickita.
Kacey , 10 Mar 2: This people are professional scam artists who will try to take you for thousands. They prey on the lonely, vulnerable people who have had bad dating experiences and are searching for a mate. This prevents you from conducting research on their company to see what they are made of. After long enough everyone can find someone. I asked how they know they about this value and the representative said that the ones that they are divorced come back to be members.

Here's another one of them that thinks they know it all. Goddamn it, cunt, why don't you come down from your fat fluffy cloud and get a real life. Not everyone in the whole fucking world are optimists, okay. Some people find optimism annoying and intrusive and it just annoys people to the point of being pissed off. Besides optimism, when you pay for something you don't get, you want something, no matter what it is, in return, duh!
