I'm not getting many views or messages, what can I do?

There several things that can result in this problem. 

  • Do you have a profile picture, which shows your face? If you don't have a profile picture you won't get many profile views. If your profile picture is of something other than yourself that'll also cut down on profile views.

  • Are you on here frequently? If you login once per day or once every few days you won't receive very many profile views or messages. Most members find new people from either "Feature Me" at the top of certain pages, or "Meet People". If you're not online you'll be harder to find in "Meet People". So stay active on the site!
