Help chapter Profiles

Help topic What are profiles?

Your profile is your unique web page on this site, dedicated just to you. It shows your name, photos, friends, and facts such as your age, height, number of children etc. It contains your description of yourself, and the type of people you'd like to meet.

Creating your profile is the first and most important step when you join, and you should take some time to write a great description of yourself and upload some nice photos.

Help topic When will my profile go online?

All new profiles are manually reviewed by a member of staff here. We do this because some people try to bring the quality of the site by including content that is against our rules. For example you are not allowed to include email addresses, web addresses or phone numbers in your profile.

On average it takes us about three hours to review your profile, but it is always reviewed within 12 hours.

Help topic Why is my profile under review?

If you make a change to your profile, we take it offline to re-review it. On average it takes about three hours to re-review your profile, but it is always re-reviewed within 12 hours.

We re-review all profiles after changes have been made to ensure the profile still falls within our rules. For example we do not allow email addresses, web addresses or phone numbers in profiles.
