Profiles with photos are four times more likely to get communication from other members. For many, it’s the deciding factor whether to contact someone or not. That’s why it’s so important to make the right first impression. Make sure you post good quality photos that show you in the best light. Additionally, the amount of pictures you upload can make a difference. Profiles with four or more photos receive the most messages.
Do: Upload a variety of photos that capture who you really are. Photos that show your interests are more likely to spark a meaningful conversation.
Don’t: Miss out on potential opportunities just because you didn’t take the time to make sure your pictures were as good as they could be.

After your photo, it’s the first thing someone sees when they visit your profile. This is your chance to differentiate yourself and briefly encompass who you are. Don’t be afraid to share what you are looking for in a relationship. The goal is to find that special someone who is looking for the same goals.
Do: Check your grammar and spelling. Most people find poor grammar and spelling mistakes a major turn off.
Don’t: Use generic clichés that anyone could say like “I work hard and play hard.” Even though it may be true, there’s almost always a better way to say the same thing. Be original and you’ll stand out.
The more you share about yourself, the better someone will see what makes you special. You can move questions up or down as you like to create an order that you like best. Members who have completed their questions benefit from more communication whereas members that leave their questions blank tend to be seen as unserious or someone who may not be easy to get to know.
Do: Take the time to think about each question and answer as fully as possible. Here quantity and quality are both equally important.
Don’t: Over-exaggerate or bend the truth. Answer your questions honestly and stay authentic.
Trust is the basis of every relationship. With our text message verification, you can show other members that you really exist and that you have serious intentions. Members with a verified symbol are viewed as more trust-worthy and tend to receive more messages.
Do: Take the 2 minutes to verify your phone number and get the verified symbol added to your profile.
Don’t: Give out personal information like your phone number to other members until you are 100% comfortable. Make sure to screen out any matches that are exhibiting red flags and always follow your gut feeling.
Members who have a completed profile are twice as likely to receive communication from others. That’s why in addition to answering questions about yourself and sharing a personal quote, you can also add your hobbies, customize your background image, and even update “what’s on your mind.”
Do: Keep your profile up to date and make the effort to renew your profile on a regular basis. It will keep your profile interesting and give others a reason to visit your profile.
Don’t: Forget to have fun! Include your sense of humor into your profile where possible. Being able to laugh together is an important part of every relationship and a great icebreaker for communication with other members.
