I was foolish enough to fall for the ads in the flight magazines. ITS JUST LUNCH, IRVINE. But I thought, let's give it a try. Expensive? Yes, but I was led to believe the matching process was their core competency, much better than shooting the dice with online dating services. To begin with the crew at the Irvine location all go to the same school for 'phone talk'. They are very artificial and have an extremely annoying sing song tone. After going on 4 really bad dates where I had absolutely nothing in common with the dates, I submitted a complaint. The directory called me back, and swore she would manage my file, only to send me the same caliber and worse. They don't tell you up front that the ratio of men to women is very high.
Pros: You get to eat at some nicer places and the men generally pay
Cons: These are nightmare dates
