What's this 'Loopylove bomb' thing all about?

It's a great matchmaking tool. Once a week, you get the chance to send a loopy lovebomb message.
This is a bulk mailing that goes out to around 100 members chosen according to your default search criteria.
Lovebombs are a great way to find potential dates and to make yourself known within our dating site.

I got an email saying I had a message, when I went to the site the message had disappeared. What's going on?

This person may have deleted their profile or been deleted from the site.
If someone deletes their profile all the messages they sent or that were sent to them are also deleted.
This is done to ensure privacy for people who wish to leave the site.

I deleted a message by accident and now I want it back

How can I stop another member from sending me messages?

If you really object to someone on the site and decide you never want to hear from them again, you can block them from sending you any further messages using our block facility.
At the bottom of the members' profile, you'll see a link that reads 'Block this person'.
Click on this link and you'll arrive at a page where you can decide whether to block them completely or not.
If you block another member you will be completely hidden from them, they won't be able to view your profile, view any previous messages between you, see you in search results or contact you.
