Connecting me with people from France?

I’ve only had the app a couple of days so am still getting the hang of it, I downloaded this because plenty of fish was overwhelming me with messages and once doesn’t work in that way where everyone can message you.
However I have had a few notifications that I’ve liked someone and been liked back but then I go to their profile and they’re from a different country, my distance selector should be making that impossible.
It’s disheartening to be liked back then find the guy doesn’t live in the same country or speak the same language.

Terrible ripoff app

Update: The app literally wants £8 to start any chat. I've had two chat requests so far, which would have cost the person two credits at £2 each. I then have to spend two credits to accept and reply. £8 to start a chat... What? You don't even know who they are before you accept unless you pay a subscription. Seriously? I can only assume these requests were fake to lure you into paying, because no female would pay £4 to attempts to chat to someone when they can get thousands of messages elsewhere for free. Don't get this tripe.

Before update: A nice concept, especially with some special computer or hand picked matches just for you... but having it a few days, you only get up to 4 potential matches each day, and every single one that has been sent has been quite literally hideous. I know I'm not the worlds best catch, but I'm aiming a little higher than inbred freak. Going through and 'rating' people to help find your best matches, I haven't seen such terrible people to rate so low, so why are they all being net my way as matches?

This app is a Money Scam BEWARE!!!

This app randomly selects people who rate you 4 or 5 stars and on a daily basis gives you ‘Fake Chat Requests’ These are people with a small circular picture (No other information displayed) And they want you to believe that they’ve used two coins to send you the chat request. Unfortunately it’s a con on so many levels, half the time the person is in a different country altogether. And if that wasn’t bad enough, I’ve asked a handful of people if they’ve paid real money to request to chat to me and they categorically claimed that they didn’t.

Developers if your reading; You can’t make out like they're are people requesting to chat when there isn't. in turn making somebody make a judgement call on wether to spend there own hard earned money on a tiny picture only to find out the person who supposedly requested the chat never did, neither did they pay real money in the first place. ITS CALLED OBTAINING MONEY THROUGH DECEPTION - PUT SIMPLY ITS A FRAUDULENT CRIMINAL OFFENCE!!! This app should be pulled from the App Store period.
