I guess I don’t understand how Yelp works…it seems to have lost all credibility. There are positive reviews by clients that Yelp has hidden who have actually USED Bon Jour Matchmaking. As soon as they get something negative they post it. They shouldn’t be posting reviews of people who have never used the service. At the bottom of my page on YELP it says 20 reviews not currently recommended…click on that and read those reviews also!
Currently there is a post by a Kirsten S. who has never been a client of mine. She phoned me yesterday and I got up out of a sick bed and half asleep to chat with her. I spent an hour explaining both how Denver matchmaking and Denver dating services work. Going into great detail as to the differences in Bon Jour from the other local services. As always I spent a lot of time answering her questions as I’ve been in this field for 25 years and have a lot of information to share.
Towards the end of the conversation she asked me questions that left me thinking that the information I shared went in one ear and out the other. She never mentioned that she was in school for her Phd. so on her post I don’t even know if that is true. Reading her review she STILL doesn’t get it, can you imagine that with all the info on this site as well as an hour phone consultation…anyway, your FREE phone consultation is exactly for this reason.
I assessed that she did not understand the philosophy of Bon Jour Matchmaking or the structure so I suggested that she keep looking for a more suitable matchmaking service and wished her good luck. In short order she called back apologizing for I guess not getting it or not listening or something I presume trying to get me to reconsider, but it was clear to me that she would not make a good client. I am very protective of my clientele and only accept about half the people who phone me for the service to keep it upscale and safe. You can meet unstable people on the Internet and other services.
If her description of the service in her review had been correct I doubt I would still be matchmaking after 25 years. It is absolutely scary that just because I declined to accept her as a client she would go to this length. That has never happened before…ever! Can you imagine someone complaining because I did NOT take their money?
She has now posted the same negative review on Yelp.com, Pissedconsumer.com and Kudzu.com on Bon Jour. I sure made the right call on that. Instead of thanking me for saving her the money (I quoted her my lowest fee BTW), she is dealing with my honesty by bashing a service she has never used and clearly does not understand. I have another post on this Blog explaining that not all reviews are a reflection of the service, but rather the reviewer and their own issues. This is obviously one of those.
