Keep your search criteria fairly broad as this will give you more search results. If you are getting about 20 or more pages of results, then you can be more specific in your search criteria and still get a decent amount of results. Remember you can always invite your friends to join!

This is an advanced search that allows you to be more specific. This search is recommended for experience users only as it will return much fewer results than a ‘Find My Matches’. Be careful with running too much criteria. If you get too specific you are likely to get 0 results back.

The ‘Find My Matches’ allows you to search in by a few criteria, such as ‘I am’, ‘Seeking a’, ‘From’, ‘To’. This is usually the best search to run to return profiles quickly but it will return more profiles than an advanced search.

Smileys can be added to most posts you type quite easily. When you type 🙂 for example, smile is shown. This works in message bodies, your profile, photo, and date idea descriptions, and comments you post.

Smile Codes
🙂 = smile 😉 = wink 😀 = bigsmile
🙁 = frown 😛 = tongue >: = mad

Messages are sent immediately you click the ‘Send Message’ button and a date stamp with the actual message is displayed above the text area. An error message will be displayed if the message is not sent. Therefore, if you do not receive an error message, your message has been sent.

Guys, don’t send a sexually explicit message to someone that you have no relationship with or even spoken to. You will never get a reply. Most likely it will result in your post or account getting deleted.

A good sense of humor is a big turn on. Say something funny in your messages. Don’t try too hard with it, just a little sweet comment here or there.

Don’t write a general purpose message and then send it to a bunch of people. Mention something specific and interesting about their respective profiles.

When contacting someone for the first time, don’t tell them your life story, just send them a short message that will intrigue them and make them want to reply to you.

Safety Tips for Meeting in Person

Meet for coffee or a drink for the first time. Don’t plan anything elaborate, or anything time consuming. This is the first time you are meeting this person. Honestly you may find that you may not be attracted to the person on your first date, and if that’s the case you’ll be happy you didn’t plan to be together for the whole day.

Folks, the world is a dangerous place, even for Christians. You never know who it is on the other end. Always meet in a highly visible and public place. Even if you feel you know the person, just meet in a safe place.

Email is a bit impersonal. Having a phone conversation will give you a better idea of their personality. The way someone sounds and laughs can help you decide if the chemistry is there or not. Know before you decide to meet them in person.

It is always a good idea to know what your date looks like before deciding to meet them in person. You don’t want to be disappointed right? At least if you have some pictures to look at you, you can tell if you have an attraction to the person or not.
