But will you walk away with the person of your dreams, or will you just end up with the money sucked from your wallet? Prior to the agency introducing him to his current partner, Sam met with two other men, but no sparks flew. However, finding negative feedback about Entre-Nous was not hard. John Freriksen is the owner of a successful business in downtown Calgary. The one thing missing from his life was a romantic partner.
He considered using Entre-Nous to match him with a potential mate. All he had heard about them was that they were good, but not cheap. This was a large investment, even for a successful businessman. In this time, John decided against signing up: I said, excuse me, I have not given you any permission to put this on my Visa. On Monday John got a call back from Montreal. Then it got more interesting. A week and a half later he finally got his money back. This is important because that agreement keeps you from disclosing your fee to other people including any prospective dates they send to you.
Indeed, regardless of the amount charged for membership, the product provided by Entre-Nous seems to come up short not just in Calgary, but in several other cities. His paper and Xtra! West have reported on several similar situations. West, Entre-Nous themselves admitted fees can vary.
As well, hesitancy may lower the fees, as another gentleman found out. Interestingly enough, dubious behavior in a matchmaking agency is not unique to the GBLT community alone. Again, like Entre-Nous, members of this service were not aware such price differentials existed. That being said, in our community small slights can get magnified to dramatic levels. I sent a list of my questions and concerns to Entre-Nous, with the hopes of including their side of the story in this article.
This was not surprising, because according to Kuhr, Entre-Nous has a reputation of being secretive when it comes to the inner workings of their company. That non-response, along with other concerns, might raise warning signals. And if you even think of comparing notes with another customer, there could be consequences. This means that if this agency is truly doing their customers wrong, they can count on the fact that most will not fight back for fear of outing themselves in more ways than one.
His philosophy toward business mistakes is to admit them, fix them, and move on.
