Email - how it really works
Once you have created your own profile, other members can start contacting
you. They'll let you know you have messages waiting for you by
sending a notice to your personal email address. If you are already
a Date.ca Premium Member, then log in and pick up the messages at your
personal onsite Inbox. The Date.ca message Inbox is available exclusively
to Premium Members. Once you are a Premium Member, you can read all
incoming messages, respond to the members who contacted you, and initiate
contact with whomever you like. With your personal onsite email, you’ll
always remain anonymous and in control.
See photos and profiles of everyone who's online. Add people that you're
interested in to your "favorites" list.

send them an instant message and see if sparks fly.
Check out the scene from home or office. In your business or birthday
suit, make yourself at home. They're open 24/7
What is a tease? How many times can I tease someone?
A tease is a quick, fun way to let someone know you're interested.
You pick a one-liner from our list of teases, and it's sent to the
member of your choice. The member gets the tease in his or her onsite
email Inbox and then can go to your profile and tease you back. You
can send up to 30 teases a day, but each member can only be teased
once. All date.ca members can send teases for free. If you'd like to
take it a step further, we suggest upgrading to a Premium Membership
email to start up a real conversation..
How do I keep other members from knowing that I looked at their
profile or hot listed them?
If you don't want other members to know when you've looked at their
profile or hot listed them, go to date.ca Profile Display Settings
in Member Services and select "hide" in the section called "Show/Hide
When I View Or Hot List Members."
Keep in mind that members who are most active on the site keep their
profile visible in all places because it ups their chances of connecting
with people. You never know, someone special may be looking for you
but never find you if your profile is hidden. Hot Lists have been a
real hit on our sites and have helped bring some unsuspecting couples
together! People keep telling date.ca that they contact
people simply because they saw in the hot list that a member looked
at their profile. So before you hit "hide," give it a chance
Why would members want other members to know when they look at their
profile or hot list them?
Date.ca members who are really active on the site like to let other
members know when they look at their profile or hot list them because
things up and often breaks the ice when it comes to emailing. So many
times we hear that one member contacted someone simply because they
saw that that person had looked at their profile or hot listed
them. Members also say that their hot lists lead them to meet members
that they might not have seen in a search otherwise.
Think about it. If you saw that someone had hot listed you and you
liked what you saw, wouldn't you be more likely to send an email?
Why does my hot list counter change?
Half of your hot lists tell you your activity on the site. Every time
you look at or contact another member, it shows up in your hot lists
and the numbers go up accordingly. The other half of your hot lists
tell you about other members looking at your profile or emailing or
teasing you. Every time a date.ca member looks
at your profile or contacts you, it shows up in your hot lists and
the numbers go up accordingly. Keep in mind, however, that some members
choose to hide their profile from showing up in your hot lists. Also,
in order to keep your lists up-to-date, date.ca periodically clean
out the members that have been in your "viewed" list for
a while. This also changes the counter.
Do people actually meet date.ca? Do they ever get married?
Thousands of people meet on our site daily and go on to date and start
relationships. Date.ca have had hundreds of marriages across many borders.

When someone emails me, where does the email go and how do
When a member sends you a note, it goes straight into
your date.ca message Inbox. We then send an email to your personal
to let you know that it's there. To read the note, simply login to
the site and go to your Inbox. If you decide to write back, simply
click "reply" in the
member's note, write your own note and send away. Your note will
go straight into the date.ca member's onsite Inbox, and we'll let
them know it's there with an email to their personal email address.
with other members stay onsite so that you never have to give out any
personal information until you feel completely
ready. Then when you are, you can exchange phone numbers and even
meet in person.
How do I edit my profile? How do I hide my profile?
To update your date.ca profile, go to profile at the top of the page.
Click edit next to the section you'd like to update. Be sure to save
changes at the bottom of the screen when you're done. Try to put
your best foot forward with at least one photo and snappy, detailed
The photo is key since most people feel more comfortable
writing to members they can see. Try to stay positive in your essays
and let the real you shine. To hide your profile, go to Profile Display
Settings in Member Services. Keep in mind, however, that members
who are most active on the site
keep their profile visible in all places because it ups their chances
of connecting with people. And you never know, someone special may
be looking for you and never get to find you if your profile is hidden.
