The app was working great until the latest update. I have paid for a subscription, which is valid until June 7, but I cannot access all of the features now. (For example, I can't view everyone that has liked me.) Also, matches that I've unmatched or blocked are showing up again. This is very frustrating. An update is supposed to improve the app, not make it worse. Also, customer service is VERY slow. It took almost a week for me to receive a response. Please fix these issues! Thank you.

The app isn't all too terrible, the main problem is the distance filter. I've set the filter to 25 to 30 miles away and it'll give me at least 5 people with that distance and then immediately forget about the filter. The only other problem is the expense for subscription, I'd love an option to try it for a day and a cheaper option for a week, $20 is a bit much in my opinion especially when the distance filter is basically none existent. Overall don't hate the app, but I don't love it either

The range filter is horrible. At first you are shown local profiles and suddenly it switches to 150 - 300 miles away. Changing settings such are range works for about 10 minutes and then goes back to extremely long distances away. Contacted support, they said it is part of the app and they show you most relevant profiles. That sounds great in theory but who is going to drive 250+ miles to meet a stranger..
