How can I create or update my profile?

Your profile is where you can set and/or update/change information about yourself such as your age, gender, location, religion, education, gender preferences, and other details you would like for potential members to know about you.

Your profile is very important to a successful experience at CurvesConnect.com. Think of it as a first date. It is how you get to know another member on CurvesConnect.com to decide if you want that second date! The secret to success is to be yourself!

The key to a meaningful and successful relationship is to be open and honest. Building a CurvesConnect.com profile that is an honest and accurate depiction of yourself is the best way to start a meaningful and successful relationship in online dating. You should provide an overview of yourself--your lifestyle, your goals, your hobbies, and what you are looking for in a relationship.

Including a photo on your profile is important! We cannot emphasize enough how important good, easy to see, appealing photos are to your success in online dating. Uploading a photo increases your chances of receiving a connection by 30-40 times. And that’s no exaggeration! If you upload more than one photo, you are even more likely to attract someone’s attention.

Do not wait to do this later. An empty profile will not get you that second date. The sooner you complete your profile, the sooner you’ll be connecting with that perfect someone! To create your profile:

  1. Login to your account
  2. Hover over your profile thumbnail and click MY PROFILE
  3. Click EDIT on the fields you want to add or change
  4. Complete the information in each section and SAVE

REF

How can I add and delete photos?

Standard members can add one photo to their profile. Premium members can add multiple photos. There are guidelines for the type of photos that are allowed on the site. Profiles with a photo get much more attention than incomplete profiles, so when adding photos, it is important to know the reasons why they can be denied.

Only you can see your photos until they are approved. All photos are reviewed and approved by CurvesConnect.com before others can see them.

Immediately after your photos are uploaded they are placed in a queue for approval. We try to approve photos immediately. When the site gets busy, it may take several hours. While your photo is pending approval, only you can see it. We appreciate your patience during this process.

Rejected photos are removed from the site. If you have a particularly inappropriate photo, we may shut down your account immediately. In accordance with our terms service, these actions will be taken without notice or refund.

  1. The member has temporarily hidden his/her profile, or
  2. The member has removed his/her profile permanently.

REF

How can I find new members to connect with?

The Discover Feature is a quick and easy way to review photos and profiles of active members who are in your target age range. You tell us whether you like or dislike the member, and then you move on to the next profile photo. You can view the member’s entire profile by clicking on VIEW PROFILE above their photo.

Simply like or dislike the photo by clicking on the STAR icon for like, or the X icon for dislike. You will be presented with the next photo.

When you like a photo, the person whom you liked is informed of that like so that he/she can decide whether to like you back. If the person whose photo you like also likes your photo, then we inform both of you so that you can connect on the site.

If you dislike a photo, nothing happens. You simply move on the next profile. Don’t worry! The person you have disliked will not know that you disliked his/her photo/profile. You will receive an email notification that someone has liked you, and the member will be added to your “Likes Me” folder.

Access your Likes Me folder following these steps:

  1. Click the NAVIGATION MENU icon in the top left of your screen
  2. Click LIKES ME

This folder will show you who liked you, and you will also see tabs that list members you have liked, blocked, and hidden.

Star IconA star next to a member’s profile indicates that you have liked them. It does not mean someone has liked you. You must go to the Likes Me tab to see who has liked you.

Heart IconA heart next to a member’s profile indicates that you have both liked each other.

To discover members that are located further away than your current location criteria, simply change your location preferences on your profile.

If you accidently dislike someone, no worries, just follow these steps to re-like the member:

  1. Click the NAVIGATION MENU icon at the top left of your screen
  2. Click LIKES ME
  3. Click the DISLIKED tab
  4. Remove that person from the list

Once you go to your “Like Me” list, you will also see tabs that list whom you have liked and disliked. So you can go back and review what you’ve done and also change your like/dislikes.

REF

What is a flirt and how do I send one?

Once you find some members who interest you, view their profiles and send them flirts.

To send a flirt:

  1. Search candidate profiles
  2. Click on the FLIRT icon at the bottom right of the member’s profile picture
  3. When you click on FLIRT, you’ll get a drop down menu with the following list of flirt messages. Select one and your flirt will be on its way! And feel free to send us suggestions for more flirts.

When you send a flirt, CurvesConnect.com sends an email to that member’s personal email address (for example, their Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, etc) notifying them they have a flirt, and includes a link back to the site so that the recipient can quickly access their inbox on CurvesConnect.com to read your flirt.

Sending flirts is an easy way to test if someone is also interested in you. They may flirt back. However, the best way to get someone to respond is by upgrading and sending a message. This way that person can get to know you. It is important to send out a lot of flirts, messages, and to cast a wide net. Then log back in regularly to see responses and look for more members.

Don’t worry if someone you like has not been online for a while. Send them a flirt anyway. Anyone with a profile on the site wants to be contacted, even if their status indicates they have not been online in a few months. We find that new members who email members that haven’t been online in a while get the attention of those members. You’d be surprised how many success stories happen exactly this way! It’s definitely worth a shot. If a member was not interested in hearing from you, he/she would remove his profile.

If you’re a woman not used to making the initial contact, don’t worry! In the world of online dating, initiating happens both ways. Isn’t that what flirting is all about? Sending a flirt is a harmless and low risk way of getting someone’s attention. You can pick a flirt message that feels appropriate. A flirt is just a way to get the ball rolling.

REF

How do I initiate a conversation?

Once you find a member you’d like to meet, you can initiate a chat with them.

To start a chat:

  1. Search candidate profiles
  2. Click on the CHAT icon at the bottom right of the members profile picture
  3. When you click on the CHAT icon, you’ll be able to type a message and send it to the member.

When you send a chat to a member that is online, CurvesConnect.com sends an immediate (real time) email notification to that member’s personal email address (for example, their Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, etc) notifying them they have an invite to chat. And if the person is already online he/she will receive a push notification online. The member can choose to click on the notification and respond to your chat message. If the member responds, you will get a real time notification in order to continue the conversation via your messaging Inbox.

REF

How do I send and receive messages?

Only premium members can send a message to another member. Standard members who receive personal messages from a premium member will receive a notification and a link to the premium sender’s profile. Standard members must upgrade in order to read the message, but don’t let that discourage you from sending a message to a standard member. The vast majority of standard members do upgrade. So it is always worth sending a message. The standard member will receive an immediate notification of your message and that you are a premium member, and she/he will likely upgrade.

To tell if your message has been read. You can only tell if messages to premium members have been read. In your Outbox, you will see an envelope next to each message you have sent. The white envelope indicates your message has not been read. If the mail has been read, the envelope disappears.

Flirts (messages) to standard members are not opened on the site. Standard members receive a notification from us sent to their personal inboxes (Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, etc). So these messages will always have the envelope next to them.

An arrow to the left of a message indicates that you have already replied to the most recent message you received from that member.

REF

Where can I find older messages?

All of the messages you exchange with a member on the site show up together as one conversation. So you can see the entire back and forth conversation with that member all in one place. We do not delete any messages from your inbox. Only you can do that.

It is essential that your profile not contain any of the following: profanity; inappropriate content (e.g. pornographic content), personal contact information, attempts to communicate with members via your profile; comments on your membership status; disparaging comments about anyone; and/or information to contact you off the site.

When new profiles or changed profiles are rejected, we might send you an email explaining why. You will need to update/correct your profile in accordance with our terms of service. However, in some instances, at our discretion and without warning, we may ban you from the site for violation of our terms of service.

REF

Why is it telling me my password is incorrect?

There are several reasons you may receive an incorrect password message. Here are some things to check:

  • Password typed incorrectly. Retype the password to make sure there were no typos.
  • If you have recently changed your password, your browser may be automatically inserting an old password. Check your browser settings to disable your auto-fill settings if enabled.
  • You may have to reset your password.

If you still cannot login, please submit a support ticket.

REF

How can I disable the auto-filling I see happening in my browser?

Auto-fill is a feature found in some browsers that fills out online forms such as shipping or billing information. The steps to disable (or enable) are unique to each browser. Thus, we cannot give complete instructions for disabling this feature. It is best if you search for instructions specific to your browser. For example, type the following into your search engine: how to disable auto-fill settings for chrome (insert your browser name instead of chrome). Then, follow the instructions given for your browser.

Subscription & Billing

REF

What are the membership plan options?

Standard (Free)

As a standard member, you can create a profile, browse through our database of member profiles, use search options, send flirts to members, and receive flirt notifications from other members. This membership level allows you to “test the waters” to determine if you are interested in other members and if other members are interested in you. If you want to take a flirt to the next level and exchange contact information, you will need to upgrade to the premium membership.

Premium (Paid Subscription)

With premium membership, in addition to what you can do as a standard member, you can also send and receive unlimited personalized emails to and from other premium members, post unlimited photos, see the online status and last visit date of other members, know who visited your profile, block members from contacting you, and exchange contact information.

REF

REF

What are the premium prices?

There are several premium membership pricing plans available.

If you are a registered standard member, you can click on the UPGRADE link from your profile page, and you will see the Premium Membership Price Plans.

REF

How do the discounts work?

Purchasing a multiple month plan allows you to get a lower monthly rate by paying upfront instead of paying month-by-month by paying for those months in one lump sum up front.

When you choose a 3- or 6-month plan option, you get a discounted rate off the monthly membership fee. You must pay for all of those months in one lump sum at enrollment.

The discounted rate for 3 or 6 months is available only if you pay for the full 3 or 6 months at enrollment. We make this clear for you on the confirmation page and show you the total amount right above the confirmation button. If you only want to be billed monthly, you must pay the monthly rate.

REF

Why is my card being declined/denied?

There are many reasons why a payment comes back denied by your card issuer. The most common reasons are:

  • Insufficient funds available
  • Invalid card details
  • Your card has expired
  • Your billing address does not match the card statement
  • Your CVV/CVV2 number was incorrect or incomplete
  • Your bank does not often see you making payments online and is declining the payment as a precaution. This is the most common reason why debit cards are denied. In this case, simply call your bank and inform them you want to make this payment. They will then wave it through and the charge should be accepted the next time you try to pay online.

If your valid credit card is not being accepted, please contact customer support which is available from 8am to 8pm Eastern time at (800) 427-4145.

How does renewal work?

For your convenience and to avoid an interruption in communication with your matches, all subscription packages automatically renew at the end of the current subscription (unless cancelled before the renewal date) as agreed to during the purchase process. This step also protects you from rate increases by locking in the published rate that was in effect when you originally purchased your subscription. Rebilling will occur only when your current payment period expires and not before. However, often times your bank prepares the payment file three working days before the date of renewal, so if you discontinue your membership you must cancel your auto-renewal at least three days before the collection date.

You can see your subscription renewal/expiration date by following these steps:

  1. Login to your account
  2. Click NAVIGATION MENU icon at the top left of the screen
  3. Click SETTINGS
  4. Click MANAGE SUBSCRIPTION
  5. The renewal/expiration date is at the top near your account status of “paid”

What is your financial security policy?

We do not hold any card details on our servers or computers or other files. This ensures maximum safety for you. We process your payment using a state of the art, regulated, and supervised system which is watched carefully by various authorities. We do not keep your information anywhere on our own site. You can also pay by money order, although that is a much slower process.

If you choose this approach, be sure to give us 24 hours prior to your next renewal, in order to assure that your request is handled prior to the renewal time.

How do I reporting an abusive, offensive or suspicious member?

When you receive a mail from such a member, please block that member and feel free to report him/her using the reporting flag.

REF

What can be done about criminal activity?

CurvesConnect.com believes the safety and security of its’ members is important. However, in accordance with our terms of service, CurvesConnect.com shall not be liable for criminal activity experienced by members of the site.

If you have a concern about safety, crimes or any illegal activity, you should involve your local police. Of course, we would like to address all reasonable concerns. If you send us a police report, we will read it and use it to determine whether a profile should be removed.

Please exercise careful consideration prior to involving law enforcement. Consider discussing your concerns with a family member or other confidant to ensure that your reasoning is sound. Relationship issues can unfortunately prevent us from seeing the truth.

In any instance that you feel your life or well-being is threatened, you should contact your local police immediately.

REF

Do you conduct Criminal Background Checks?

CurvesConnect.com does not conduct criminal background checks of its members. If you have concerns about a member, please share them with us by submitting a support ticket. Please keep in mind that hearsay, “he said / she said,” and baseless accusations may not suffice to terminate an account.

REF

Can a member be removed from the site?

CurvesConnect.com reserves the right to determine what is considered inappropriate and what will be a violation resulting in a member’s removal from the site. Actions that may result in removal includes, but is not limited to anything lewd, fake, malicious, deceitful, or disparaging to members or to the site.

We receive many incoming requests to review member profiles and we unfortunately cannot review them all. When you submit a request to support for us to review a profile, please be as specific as possible about the complaint. Clear, concise, and specific complaints are more likely to be addressed and acted upon faster.

REF

How do you determine what is inappropriate behavior?

We use our best judgment in determining inappropriate behavior, and so should you. CurvesConnect.com is a platform for connecting people. We are not relationship counselors and do not offer relationship counsel and advise. We welcome a plurality of views, preferences and tastes. One easy guideline: If you post something that is likely to generate complaints from more than one person, it probably is not acceptable. Also, if you act in a way which we deem inappropriate or otherwise unacceptable, we may warn other members about your behavior.

REF

What about scammers?

Discouraging scammers is important to us. We use various technologies and tools to do so. We also use our own proprietary methods which we will obviously not disclose. We care about the quality of your experience on our site and make reasonable efforts to keep scammers off. You can judge for yourself whether CurvesConnect.com does a good job. We believe we do. But it is important that you understand that we cannot be responsible for scams that anyone falls victim to.

The best way to avoid scammers is actually really simple--Use your street smarts, be patient, don’t rush into relationships, and under no circumstance should you give anyone money or financial information about yourself. Read about Safe Online Dating Practices on our site and elsewhere online. If someone tells you they are from a foreign country, he/she is more likely to be up to no good. Block that member immediately and report that member to us. If you follow this basic advice, you will do more to protect yourself than any sophisticated technology out there.

Again, yes, of course, we care. And of course we do a lot to keep scammers off the site. But ultimately you are responsible for your actions.

What are some safe online dating practices?

There are some very important and basic rules to safe online dating that you should always remember.

Never share your financial information (Social Security & Bank Account number) with anyone online under any circumstances.

Never exchange checks and/or cash with anyone unless you have built up trust with that person over a long period of time.

Never send money to any member who requests it, even if that person claims to be in dire circumstances. This is a huge red flag and means you should cease contact immediately

Always report members who send you mail that seems like a scam or seems fraudulent by submitting a support ticket.

Remember that CurvesConnect.com members can only be from the United States or Canada. Access to our site from abroad is prohibited. Anyone who is abroad should not be trusted under any circumstances.

Never include your last name, e-mail address, home address, phone number, place of work, or any other identifying information in your profile or messages to other members.

Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing personal or financial information. Please report that person to us immediately by submitting a support ticket.

There is no substitute for acting with caution when communicating with any stranger who wants to meet you in person. If you choose to have a face-to-face meeting with another member, always tell someone in your family or a friend where you are going and when you will return. Always provide your own transportation to and from your date. And always meet in a public place with many people around. Never agree to be picked up at your home.

More information about safe online dating can also be found at the FTC.gov website.

Does CurvesConnect ever send out messages to members to “spur” activity?

Very simply stated: NO WAY! CurvesConnect.com does not engage in any artificial flirt or message sending WHATSOEVER.

Sending false or misleading emails is completely against everything for which we stand, and for which we strive in building our CurvesConnect.com community. We have ZERO tolerance for any artificial or fake activity. We would NEVER create a fake profile, generate a fake message, or fraudulently connect with our members as a way to falsely inflate member statistics.

Moreover, please understand that we go to great lengths to encourage healthy and constructive behavior on our site. Under no circumstances do we deliver messages or flirts that were not initiated by members on our site.

While this has been an industry practice, CurvesConnect.com does not condone the use of artificial flirting or message sending. You should always be cautious when online dating and use good online dating practices, but you can be assured that a flirt or message is from a registered member and not an attempt by CurvesConnect.com to artificially boost the number of flirts or messages you receive.

REF

Why isn’t CurvesConnect.com completely free?

Our goal at CurvesConnect.com is to provide a quality and clean online dating experience. To do this requires lots of behind the scenes administration of the site and therefore, administration costs. Our fees are set in accordance with these costs. We take pride in knowing we have been responsible for at least one wedding every week thanks to our site.
