Even if they don’t write it, it’s a good idea to ask your friends for their assessment of your dateable qualities. Once you consider yourselves to be boyfriend and girlfriend, you must delete that profile. These subjects include your ex, your nervous breakdown, your criminal record or your fungal infection. If you meet someone you like, and they discover that you’ve lied, they’ll wonder what else you’ve been fibbing about. A: More than one (people will think it’s the only decent photo of you in existence), but no more than five (people will think you’re conceited). A: Whether you’re a man or a woman, a photo with your shirt off makes you look desperate and/or only interested in finding someone who’ll leave before breakfast. Weave in some questions naturally when (and if) you get a correspondence going. You don’t have to delete your profile or cancel your membership, but de-activating tells your date that you want to continue seeing them. Some things are best left unsaid until you’re a couple of successful dates down the line. A: Surprisingly few do, because they know it’s a pointless strategy. Q: Should I send a list of questions about their profile? Drop them a note to say hello, and mention one or two points in their profile that intrigued you. You’re supposed to be interested in them and their profiles, not spamming everyone with junk mail saying “hi, you’re great and I’m available.” Q: I emailed someone and they never wrote back. Q: How long should I keep someone waiting before I reply to their email? You won’t “keep them keen,” you’ll make them find someone else to date. A: If you’ve had a couple of dates and things are going well, you should both take your profiles off the active list. Your aim is to stand out from the crowd – and to look as though you’ve actually read their profile. However, don’t send the same email to lots of people at once. Do you really want to get an email that says “thanks but no thanks”? Don’t be over-keen and fire back an email within minutes, but don’t play hard to get either. If they take a day or two to reply, play it more cool. But as a rule of thumb, avoid too many smileys and steer clear of TXT SPK or capitalised words, or you’ll come across like a shouty 13-year-old. Q: We had a couple of dates and I’m not that into him. Q: How long after meeting someone should I take my profile down? Online dating moves fast, and there’s lots of competition. If they reply to you quickly, then you’re free to reply to them quickly. A: If that’s what you normally do, go ahead – it’s the real you. It’s very rude to block them simply because you don’t fancy them. Six emails in total is enough to know whether you want a date. If you’ve been out several times, you must deliver the break-up face to face.
If another member does not meet these criteria - for example location or age - then they will be unable to contact the member who has activated their Contact Filter.You will boost their ego by complimenting their appearance.They will also be flattered that you appreciate all the effort it took to set up the date.Each Member can access or request access to information concerning him/her in order to have it modified, deleted or to forbid any further use by us of it.Members can submit such requests for access by mailing their requests to the following address: International Limited – PO Box 64197, London, WC1A 9FG, UK or by filling out the contact forms, and each Member shall carefully identify the sender's personal information. However, don’t start the profile with: “I asked my friend to tell me why I’m a catch, and here’s what he said.” You’ll sound like a conjoined friend-twin who can’t think for him or herself. If they know you well, they may be able to see and articulate what you can’t. A: Only if you want to be fabulously crude, or you’re actively seeking a gold-digger.
