We are sorry, but this profile is closed...

What does it mean that a profile is "closed"?

It means that the profile is inactive, and it is not possible to send messages to the owner of the profile anymore.

Wow, that's lame... Can you tell me why this profile is closed? Please?

No, we cannot. This is confidential information. Sorry...

OK, but can you give me some general information about closed profiles?

The member may have choosen to close his or her profile for private reasons.

It may also have been closed by us. If it was closed by us, the most common reasons are if the member was:

  • Behaving rude
  • Asking for money
  • Offering or sending money (If no one ever offers/sends money, no one will ever ask for money...)
  • Offering prostitution / escort services or seeking prostitutes/escorts
  • Neglecting to report / flag certain offenses to us (in our site reporting certain offences is mandatory)
  • Creating more than one profile
  • Uploading fake or otherwise inappropriate photos
  • Uploading photos with children (even photos of own children or the member as a child is not allowed)
  • Committing Identity Theft / Impersonation or in any other way creating a fake profile with false information
  • Spamming by sending the same message to many different members
  • Advertising
  • Discriminating other members for their sexual orientation
  • In any other way violating our terms of use

How do you know when to close a profile?

We rely on help from you. In every profile there is a "Report Member" link. Use this link to report "bad" members to us. If the evidence is clear, or when a member gets a certain number of complaints, his or her profile will be closed.

All this talk about closing profiles gives me the creeps. Can my profile be closed too?

Relax... if you play by the rules there is no risk of your profile being closed at all. Just be nice to the world, and the world will be nice to you. It's really as simple as that.
