The ODA provides general information on common enquiries users have about dating services but will not deal directly with individual complaints which are properly the responsibility of member companies.
The ODA monitors enquiry and complaint levels and the issues complained about.
Even when members don’t ‘hook up’ romantically they generally seem to have a fulfilling get-together anyway – swapping massages, practising Tantric meditations, meeting at an interesting lecture or enjoying a walk in nature.
There have definitely been some deep and lasting relationships springing up out of the site although no babies have been born yet (that we know of).
Paid members can freely message, start discussion thread, no daily limit of disucssion board entries. Members only see intersection of what they are looking for and what other members are looking for. Free messaging and status posting for undergraduates (5 messages/day limit).
