They ruined it


If there was a 0 star that's what I would've given it. I have been off and on this site for a long time and it used to be very good and fun to be on. Now they've gotten greedy and completely changed the whole format. You can't even see the previous comment in a conversation, so if you don't get back to that person right away, you don't know what the heck you asked them! I've never seen anything like that on any other site I've been on, and I've tried many. But I always came back to AYI because they felt like family. If you didn't meet someone romantically, t least you made a friend.
When the format changed on 3/4/16, everyone was scrambling to give and receive phone numbers because we couldn't even find our regular friends. This used to be an excellent and safe site to take your time and get to know somebody without be intimidated. It also used to show the distance between you and another person which was nice because there was no sense in replying to someone you didn't see as being a candidate due to the distance between you. They've really ruined it. A lot of my friends said they'll be leaving the site also. It was nice the way it was. But the almighty dollar destroys once again. Don't waste your time.



(From a 41-year-old software engineer.) I was able to use this app for a while and would have given it 3-4 stars at that time. After an update, the "Connect with Facebook" login dialog box would take me back to the intro screen after I chose login, leaving me unable to use the app. After an update that was supposed to fix this issue: when I click "Conect with Facebook", I am shown a dialog that tells me I'm already logged in, but asks whether I want to allow the app to post to my wall and read mine and and my friends "Check-ins"; when I choose "Don't allow", I'm taken back to the intro page, unable to use the app's features. The service is very awkward and inconvenient to interact with through the Facebook site; if this app doesn't get fixed quickly, I will cancel my subscription. Uninstalling and re-installing this app does not fix the issue on my iPhone 4 with iOS 4.1.

Not what it's cracked up to be!

Even though I have met some pretty cool people on this site, you have to pay more $$$ to have a conversation with them. And when you do chat, you get knocked off the site. What's even more frustrating is that I keep getting matches and/or interest from individuals who are over 1,000 mis away. Really AYI? What part of <40 mis don't you understand. Lastly, the amount of people who are scamming and/or using false id's is very irritating. AYI should perhaps be more concerned over these interactions rather than monitoring and charging me for a legitimate chat! But I guess this holds true for most, if not all, dating sites.

P.S...AYI, quit sending icebreakers on my behalf that I didn't initiate. If I want to solicit a conversation with someone, I believe I'm capable of doing it on my own. I will ask if I need your assistance.
