Any options that you have chosen to block from contacting you such as smokes or drinks or lives outside of your country will not appear on your My Matches list. They each need to be larger than 400 x 400px and are in a JPG, BMP or GIF format.
The reason that this happens from time to time is because the user that had tried to contact you was determined to be a scam artist.Scammers are a very unfortunate element of the online dating world and we work very, very hard to eliminate them from the Christian Dating For Free community.We actually monitor all registrations and all member activity day and night, 365 days a year!Even though we catch and ban many of these scammers, on occasion one or two may sneak through.Or, the scammer may appear to be somewhat legitimate and we give them the benefit of the doubt for a short time.If this happens, that scammer is able to view profiles or send a few private messages or winks before we retroactively ban the person.
When we ban them, all of the scammer's messages and winks are deleted with them so that you will not be bothered with their message or winks and so that you will have no chance of being scammed (many times they try to include their "personal" contact information including their email address so that they can get you outside of our protected environment). DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESS OR CONTACT INFORMATION UNTIL YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH THE PERSON YOU ARE TALKING TO.
SCAMMERS WILL OFTEN GIVE YOU THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS OR "PERSONAL INFO" RIGHT FROM THE VERY FIRST MESSAGE.
ONLY COMMUNICATE WITH OTHERS VIA THE CHRISTIAN DATING FOR FREE PRIVATE MESSAGING FUNCTION SO THAT WE CAN PROTECT YOU TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITIES. Our ultimate goal is to protect you from these people and to protect the sanctity, security and safety of your Christian Dating For Free Community.
We apologize for the confusion that this may create but we hope that you understand.
When you click on My Matches you will see some profiles that we think would be good for you based on your location as well as what you have selected in your "Account Settings".
For example, if you have set your preferred age range as 28 to 42 then you will see profiles of people in this age range - but ONLY those who desire YOUR age.
