So, in my recent insomniac state I've been watching TV because what else do you when you don't want to think...Anyway, just saw a commercial for match.com that promised a “make love happen” satisfaction guarantee in 6 months or you get 6 months free use of the site. wtf? Since when has love become so commoditized? Why?
Are we under that much pressure to find a mate? Is this a new level of desperation? Have users expressed dissatisfaction/frustration at the site that they can't find someone to hold hands with? And if so, it seems crazy that the business has taken upon itself to guarantee it to the point they are offering free service. It all comes down to the quality of people they are attracting. What if said person is completely intolerable? What then?
Maybe I just don’t know enough about online dating, but maybe they should be putting the cost of forgoing 6 months of service payments to getting people some “mindfindbind” advice from Dr. Phil…
