Are profiles censored? Is there any limit to what I can put in my profile?

All member profiles must be reviewed and approved when they are originally created as well as when they are modified. Member profiles must abide by our Terms of Use, which are available for review from the Terms of Use link on the footer in our site pages.

We reserve the right to refuse any profile or photograph that we feel is inappropriate for the site its posted to. Also, we ask that you do not put any personal information in your profile, including but not limited to: your home address, a personal beeper, cell or telephone number, a "real" email address or personal web address. Any repeat offenders of this rule will be banned from using the sites until such information is removed from their profile. Because this is a violation of our Terms of Use, repeat offenses may result in the termination of your accounts without warning or refunds.

How long does it take to have my profile posted?

All profiles and photos are subject to our approval process and may take anywhere between 24-72 hours to review. Any photos or profiles that do not adhere to our Terms of Use or are deemed unacceptable will be denied.

What are some tips to remember when creating my profile?

The number of replies you get from other members will depend greatly on the quality of your profile. Here are some helpful tips:

Upload a photograph: People like to see who they're writing to: profiles with photographs get up to ten times more clicks as profiles without them. You can upload a photo from a digital camera or a scanner. If you don't have access to a scanner, we can do if for you (for a nominal fee). See the "How do I upload photos?" section for details.

Create a catchy title for your profile: When members search listings on the site, the title of your profile is listed next to your name. As a general rule, profile titles like "Hi!" do not catch people's attention, where as more personalized titles do.

Think before you write: Feel free to write as much as you want in our essay portions of the sign-up pages. Tell other members about yourself: your likes and dislikes, things you enjoy doing, what line of work you're in, what your personality is like, even your hopes and dreams. The better your profile describes you, the more likely it is that others will read and respond to it. If you can't think of anything right away, you can always add more later. And don't forget to fill out the optional profile questions - these will also help other members get to know you even better.

How do I temporarily turn my listing off?

To "turn off" your profile so that other members cannot see it, log into the site with your username and password. Then:

  1. Click on the "My Account" link in the top navigation bar of the site page.
  2. Click the "Profile Availability" link in the Account section.
  3. Select the "Make my profile temporarily turned off" radio button.
  4. Click the update button next to that section.

How do I permanently remove my listing and delete my account?

NOTE: Please make sure you have auto-renewal turned off before removing your profile.

To permanently delete your profile:

  1. Log into the site with your username and password.
  2. Click on the "My Account" link at the top of the page.
  3. Click on the "Delete Account" link in the Account section.
  4. Click on the "Permanently Delete My Entire Account" link.
  5. Enter your password and click the "Yes, delete my account" button.
CAUTION: Once you click on the "Yes, delete my account" button, you account and profile will be instantly and permanently deleted! There is no way to recover or restore your account. Please consider this before making your selection.

How do I update my profile?

To update your profile:

  1. Log into the site using your username and password.
  2. Click on the "My Account" link.
  3. There are three links in the Profile section that you can use to update your profile: "Basic Profile", "Personal Information", and "Physical Information".
  • "Basic Profile" contains the most crucial information about you (name, birthday, age, location, etc.).
  • "Personal Information" helps to fill in the details about you, such as your level of education, occupation, and marital status.
  • "Physical Information" contains vital data about your features, from height and body type to hair color.
