Frequently asked questions about online dating
We focus on a small team of elite clients who are looking for premium-quality matches – the rare and elusive singles that most people dream of meeting: Educated, intelligent, dynamic, kind, attractive, creative, and personally interested in you.
Our matchmakers have years of experience in understanding romantic psychology, what makes attraction occur, how people are perfectly suited for one another, and where to find you partners.
3.3 What's the science behind your matching algorithm?
The Search facility allows you to specify the types of profiles you want to see, according to being a 'best match', location or join date.
Recommended matches are then made on what you actually like/do on Lovestruck, not just what you say you like - ultimately going beyond conscious preferences that you have stated. Please note that pina coladas, walks in the rain, making love at midnight on the dunes on the cape, etc. (Please note that we're not making any promises.) It's also a great way to search for someone if you know their username. Keep seeing the same face every time you search, and have no intention of ever contacting them? However, you may want to take another look at your profile. Research shows that profiles with photos are 10 million times more likely to receive a response. Men in black tie and women with lipstick on do awfully well, we've noticed. Try to avoid the glass-eyed drunken grin photo if at all possible (good rule of thumb: if you can't remember the photo being taken, don't use it). Other Lovestruckers will appreciate it if you've made an effort. Blocking a member will hide your visit to their profile page. Then, to allow someone to see your profile, add that person to your Favourites and voila – they can see you in all your glory. Yes - all they have to do is click on your hidden profile and/or photo on your profile page. Either way, like back if you fancy them, don't if you don't - it's not a marriage offer, so don't agonise over it. If you're passionate about dorfball, German techno, Kir Royales, Playstation, sleeping, making sushi, Wikipedia, the Post, ultimate frisbee, wild strawberries, or gosh, whatever, then this is the place to put it.
Then, thanks to a couple of mad Doc Brown-types kept locked in a De Lorean, our behavioural analytics algorithm begins to get a real understanding of who you actually like by recording your site activity (views, winks, favourites and messages). Advanced Search allows you to narrow down your search to specific physical characteristics, background or interest by selecting the preferences and characteristics you are looking for. Ibiza, balloons, dog-walking - whatever the word, however odd, chances are someone will come up. Just set any – or both – of your photo(s) and profile 'Only my favourites'. 5.2 Can someone request to see my photo(s) and/or profile? Someone's saying they like the look of you, and before they succumb to the - gasp - huge commitment of an email, they want to know if you like the look of them, or if they remind you of an ex that you would move to the other side of Hong Kong to avoid. There's a like button on the Lovestrucker's full profile. If they like you, and you definitely DON'T fancy them, don't like back. Think of it as a quick sketch of who you are and your how you live your life.
Or, the scammer may appear to be somewhat legitimate and we give them the benefit of the doubt for a short time.
Just click on 'Hide this profile' on their profile page. Messages 4.1 How are the messages that I send to other Lovestruckers anonymous? You probably were just as adorable/funny/clever as you thought you were, and if you weren't, well, there's not much you can do about it. All mail that you send to others is automatically saved for you for up to one month. If you're pretty happy with your photo, try playing around with your Narrative section. Think of it as the bait that will reel in the many, many lovely trout that you deserve. Whatever.) 4.5 How do I block someone I don't want to talk to/receive messages from? We do want everyone to be friends and play nicely, but we also know from experience that sometimes you just don't want to see or hear from someone again. And, bless them, they probably really like you and it's far easier to just ignore them than to give them the cold hard truth (this is the true beauty of online dating). To block a Lovestrucker click 'Block this Member' on their profile. You'll then get an email with a link to their profile. If you're actually quite normal, with no oddball passions and you just like to have a laugh now and again, then again, this is the place to put it.
When I started writing Ask a Guy, I had no idea that it would take off like it has.
I am grateful to have such loyal readers who contribute great questions to me.
The reason that this happens from time to time is because the user that had tried to contact you was determined to be a scam artist.
Scammers are a very unfortunate element of the online dating world and we work very, very hard to eliminate them from the Black Christian Dating For Free community.
