What are some tips to remember when creating my profile?

The number of messages you get from other members will depend greatly on the quality of your profile. Here are some helpful tips that will help you:

Upload a photograph: People like to see whom they're considering talking to and as a result, profiles with photographs get up to ten times more clicks as profiles that don't have one. You can either upload a photo from a digital camera or a scanner.

Think before you write: Feel free to write as much as you want in our description portions of the sign-up pages. Tell other members about yourself, for instance: your likes and dislikes, things you enjoy doing, what line of work you're in, what your personality is like, even your hopes and dreams. The better your profile describes you, the more likely it is that others will read and respond to it. If you can't think of anything right away, you can always add more later. And don't forget to fill out the optional profile questions - these will also help other members get to know you even better.
