Who is a friend/contact?
know who you want to link to. Old friends, new friends, acquaintances,
colleagues - people you've met here on this website. You can be selective or gregarious. Some people just list one
friend who - someone who has written about them on their profile
"It's not what you know it's who you know"...
Adding friends gives your profile increased interest and
credibility. A lot of the worry about the whole Internet Dating business
is as to whether people are real and what is their motive. If you're linked to a
few reasonable looking people who say you're a nice guy then people are more
likely to take you seriously.
Don't just think Internet Dating - think Social Networking! This is a
great opportunity to interact with other people for your mutual benefit.
What can you do with
Double dates - parties - match up friends - find out more
about people ++
- "Hi Sazzles25 - I see you are
interested in salsa + and your friend Jennie72 too..."

for a concert next Saturday..."
- "Having a party next weekend -
with my friends..."
- "We're getting together for a meal
and need another two girls..."
- "I think your friend - Tony3 would

aren't members - what can I do?
You can also add non-member friends. Maybe they're up for

them to join. You just need to add a brief description of your friend - so

It depends. You have complete control over what your Friends gallery
looks like and you can 'hide' certain friends. Your Friends
