A: You can follow these tips to grab someone's attention and get more responses.
1. Write more about yourself and your match.
2. Don't forget to add more photos.
3. The more personalized your email, the more likely others will respond.
4. Most people respond well to humor. Keep it light at first. Show them you are a fun person.
5. Try emailing more members. The more emails you send the better your response rate will be.
6. Sign in as often as possible at different times to meet as many members as you can.
7. The most important thing is to be honest, positive and patient in all uses of the site.
A: It is a quick, fun way to let someone know you're interested. You pick a one-liner from the list, and it's sent to the member of your choice. The member gets the wink in the webmail or email address and then can go to your profile and wink back with you.
All users can send winks for free. If you’d like to take it a step further, then upgrade to a gold member and send an email to start up a real conversation.
A: Searching allows you to specify the types of member profiles you want to see. You can conduct an unlimited number of searches by selecting the preferences and characteristics of your desired match. Start with zip code, age, and gender. Then narrow your search with physical characteristics, lifestyle practices, and relationship desires. Play around and try a variety of searches. You never know where you'll find your perfect match!
A: There are a number of ways to increase your number of matches. First make sure you have created a profile. Once you create your profile, our exclusive technology will compare your profile responses with those of other members to find the profiles that best match you. Already did that? The criteria in your profile may be too specific. Go to Search Profiles and try to broaden your match criteria. For example, if you have height requirements of 5'10" -6'0", try expanding those by a few inches.
A: Don't just wait for someone to respond to your profiles. Start initiating as many winks or emails as possible. Post a photo. Research shows that profiles with photos are 8 times more likely to receive a response. When contacting other members, remember to talk more about yourself and ask questions. That gives your potential match even more incentive to write back. Make sure to sign in to your account frequently. This will enable your profile to be higher up in the search results. On the more technical side, many people have more than one email address. Always make sure you're using your registered e-mail address. If you're not receiving any response at all, you may have a "spamguard" in place, keeping mail from NudistFriends.com from reaching you. Check with your service provider. If none of these solutions work, please contact us and we'll be happy to help.
