Use The Encounters Area

Encounters are slideshows of users who match your criteria – where you are presented with a “would you like to meet” option.  You can choose between:

  • No – You do not want to meet this user
  • Maybe – you might be interested but not 100% sure
  • Yes – you are definitely interested in meeting this user

Consider this area a quick way to view matches with 3 options to choose from.  If you choose ‘yes’ or ‘maybe’ you will show up in that users ‘want to meet you’ area, where they are given the same choices.  If there is a match on both ends of ‘yes’ or ‘maybe’, you’ll be notified as this can be a great ice breaker!  If you or the other user chooses ‘no’ – no additional actions are performed.

Use The Encounters Area

In the first section “I’m Here To” choose:

  • To Find New Friends
  • To Chat
  • To Find A Relationship

In the second section “With Who” choose:

  • The age range you’re looking to date within

In the third section “Distance Slider” choose:

  • The acceptable amount of miles your match should be within
    • Note: The larger miles allowed, the more results you’ll get

If you choose to further narrow your results, click the “Extended Search” link to be presented with additional criteria.

Use The Encounters Area

In the extended search area, you can refine results using up to three (3) of the following options:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Body Type
  • Hair Color
  • Eye Color
  • Sexuality
  • Status
  • Kids
  • Smoking
  • Drinking
  • Education
  • Star Sign
  • Language
  • Hobbies

Note: you should not limit your results too aggressively as this will result in fewer matches. These extended search attributes also assume the users have defined them in their profiles. These are not required fields! Do not miss out on matches by being too picky!
