You have to be kidding me...proove you have a degree? Well, I suppose it prooves you're not lying and you're date doesn't go into the date expecting Albert Enstien or the doctor who found the cure for cancer only to find out the guy was kicked out of kidergarden for not shaving:).

Definitely very interesting article, thanks Debbie. I had no idea that any of these services refuse people because of some test results. If they really do it that strictly I would be interested in their success rate. Because if they deny people because of whatever they should have (at least from their point of view) the best "material" available and everybody must be highly placeable. So I wonder that they still have customers!?

I have experiences myself at match, lavalife and emode. emode also takes you through a psychological survey before you be able to place your profile and then matches your profile with others who's test results may be compatible. Nothing wrong with that because they also tell you about the results and what kind of personality you are (referring to their tests). But being refused without even telling you why....that's just about the limit!

Now, that has to be the most interesting thing I have read in some time. WOW! I cannot believe the man was turned down. I suppose it could be seen as a good thing maybe. He is such a great guy, there are no woman who meet his standards, maybe? lol Im not sure. I would guess it proves that dating sites are not as reliable as some like to think. It also proves, there is nothing that can beat a good ole in person connection. Love at first sight? No? lol Who knows. It was probably just a fluke that it happened to this guy, really. I think the sites are becoming so popular that they are turning people away, to keep the odds down to a minimum. These sites want to be successful, therefore if they turn a few away, it makes them seem like they really match people with soulmate material. I think it is a total fluke really. Just try another site is all this guy needs to do. Anywho. That is mine early morning opinion, not sure if it is accurate since i am still sleepy. lol
