The only contact they made with me was offering me a match with a woman who lives on the East Coast and meets very few of my critiera.
This company should be ashamed of itself for targeting gay and l*****n professionals who have limited avenues for meeting one another and who were willing to take the risk of signing up for a matchmaking service.
They figure that they can get away with their scam because few people are going to file a lawsuit saying "I was ripped off by a gay dating service." Well, if Gay Options does not follow through on their end of the contract-- and does not refund my money-- that is exactly what I intend to do.

When I called Gay Options, I specifically asked them how many women they had in their database who lived in my area (Minnesota) and who matched my criteria (age range, college degree, etc).
They claimed that they had over 300 women that fit my criteria within 100 miles of my location.
I questioned them on that, but they assured me that it was true.
As I told them, my biggest hesitation in signing up for the service was a lack of women in the database and, therefore, a lack of acceptable matches.
Well, I suppose I should have known better than to take them at their word.
I signed up for Gay Options 8 months ago and I have yet to receive one introduction.
