Academic Singles Review-a dating app for educated ones
The latest matching App/site Academic Singles, released by an established German matchmaking sites/Apps developer Be2 S.à.r.l, is introducing a new service around the world, specifically targeting “academic” and educated people.
Be2 S.à.r.l. is the company behind be2. Their 15 years old signature matchmaking site/app has more than 700,000 users worldwide. They also operate two more sites: C-Date and Lisa18, targeting people who are interested in erotic encounters with no strings attached.
Academic Singles Verdict
If you are aged between 35 to 54, reasonably educated and looking for a partner in the same category, Academic Singles is for you!
Obviously, to be academic, people need to spend a fair amount of time in education; thus there aren’t a lot of members under the age of 25.
Caution! Their subscription service has a noticeable problem! In this digital society, they are only offering cancellation of the memberships via over post or fax?? 14 days before your renewal date…
Some reviewers expressed their concerns that they signed on the subscription because they were offering discounted promotions; however, when they wanted to stop it, they got charged because they did not know how to cancel it. Moreover, even a reviewer wrote a letter to request of cancellation and posted it, the reviewer got a letter from them after 6 months saying that they would take the reviewer to court due to overdue fee.
Be2 S.à.r.l seemed to replying to all negative reviewers to urge them to contact their office.
