The Good* Great use of graphics and art work on site * Free trial for two-weeks * Loads of members * Decent customer service *
The Bad*Takes a long time to fill out a profile * A member is matched and not able to choose a partner based on search criteria.
I didn't mind chemistry.com but I did get some fake people interested in me. What gave it away was the the poor spelling and vocabulary and the fact the man asked me to help him pay for a ticket from Europe. He was stranded after being robbed in the airport as he was heading home to Connecticut. Oh, he was also a high profiled attorney so he made a ton of cash he would later pay me back with. Hmmmmm.
I was able to try a one-month membership at $49.95. I believe a three-month one is billed at $33.32 a month in bulk and six-months at $26.65 but I am not 100% certain. There were a ton of coupon codes to use online, by the way.
There are many VERY specific and personal features while filling out the online profile. But a great feature to the site really is the two-week free trial. Once a paid member, one included in emails and chats. There is also a more in depth online security enhancement and customer care. Free and paid members are able to post and view full sized photos, too.
From my limited use on the site, I was not actually searching as much as I was writing my wish list for chemistry.com to fulfill for me.
Chemistry.com needs to do some major overhauling of fake profiles. I would say half of my matches were not real but the other half were somewhat decent. If they spent more time in blasting these charlatans from the site, Chemistry.com would have my blessing fully. Perhaps a higher membership fee would help in the costs of doing that?
It's not quite there. It's 50% decent and needs improvement. My guess is that out of the five million members, perhaps half of that have lame intentions and are not worth knowing. It's just a hunch of mine and based on my limited experiences there, which by the way was the reason my experience were just that...limited.
