Because Sean McGinn, of Brooklyn New York, is a really great guy when you get to know him. Sean's interests include long walks on the beach, candlelight dinners under the moon, contemporary novels, and filing dubious lawsuits.
Sean McGinn, of Brooklyn, who filed the lawsuit in New York federal court, accused Match.com of causing "humiliation and disappointment" for some members who feel rejected when their attempt to contact a prospective date gets no reply.
McGinn wants Match.com to stop "its deceptive practices" and demands unspecified damages.
Mr. McGinn's attorney, Norah Hart of Treuhaft & Zakarin, LLP, claims that, prior to Sean's joining Match and during his tenure as a Match subscriber, Sean was unaware that many of the profiles for eligible women shown by Match are inactive, or non-subscribers. In the course of sending 33 emails and hundreds of "winks" to a lady subscriber, Sean McGinn's heart was broken.
It couldn't be that a charming fellow like Sean McGinn couldn't, you know, take a hint. That Mr. McGinn was reduced to using Match.com, rather than more orthodox channels, to meet eligible lady friends, for friendship, entertainment, and perhaps a serious relationship, couldn't be a reflection on Mr. McGinn's social skills, nor could the fact that he sent at least 133 messages to an inactive account be a reflection on his intelligence, charm, and mulish intransigence.
Because Sean McGinn, who hopes his lawsuit against Match.com will be certified as a class action, now has a new interest to share with the ladies: Avenger of Broken Hearts.
