2. Pop-ups We use pop-ups for launching the instant messenger. For all features of instant messenger to work your pop-up blocker should be disabled for https://www.longislandmatchmaking.com . For instructions on disabling pop-ups, look at the next post.
To have the best experience on longislandmatchmaking.com, it is recommended that you disable your pop-up blocker.

Some of the most common pop-up blocking programs are described below; the techniques for disabling other programs will be similar.

You can follow these tips to grab someone's attention and get more responses.
1. Write more about yourself and your match. 2. Don't forget to add more photos. 3. The more personalized your email, the more likely others will respond. 4. Most people respond well to humor. Keep it light at first. Show them you are a fun person. 5. Try emailing more members. The more emails you send the better your response rate will be. 6. Sign in as often as possible at different times to meet as many members as you can. 7. The most important thing is to be honest, positive and patient in all uses of the site.
It is a quick, fun way to let someone know you're interested. You pick a one-liner from the list, and it's sent to the member of your choice. The member gets the wink in the 'Message' or message address and then can go to your profile and wink back with you.
All users can send winks for free. If you’d like to take it a step further, then upgrade to a gold member and send a message to start up a real conversation.
Searching allows you to specify the types of member profiles you want to see. You can conduct an unlimited number of searches by selecting the preferences and characteristics of your desired match. Start with zip code, age, and gender. Then narrow your search with physical characteristics, lifestyle practices, and relationship desires. Play around and try a variety of searches. You never know where you'll find your perfect match!
There are a number of ways to increase your number of matches. First make sure you have created a profile. Once you create your profile, our exclusive technology will compare your profile responses with those of other members to find the profiles that best match you. Already did that? The criteria in your profile may be too specific. Go to Search Profiles and try to broaden your match criteria. For example, if you have height requirements of 5'10" - 6'0", try expanding those by a few inches.
If you're not getting the responses you are hoping for, consider the following:
1. If you don't have a photo, add one. This is the fastest and easiest thing you can do to increase your responses. Statistics prove that profiles with photos are up to 20 times more likely to receive attention than profiles without.
2. If you're not receiving any responses at all, be sure you're checking for responses at the email address you gave us when you signed up. It could be that your responses are simply landing at a different email address. If you are looking at the right address, also check whether you might have a Spam filter that's catching your GiftDating messages. Check with your email provider about how to add longislandmatchmaking.com as a trusted sender.
3. We recommend making a lot of initial contact attempts. It may also help to expand your search criteria in order to find more prospective matches. Be sure and take advantage of the custom search features of the site and experiment with different search parameters.
Reverse Matches search out someone like you based on your profile. The more specifically you describe yourself in your profile, the more accurate your Reverse Matches will be. If the selected matches do not meet your expectations, you can update your profile. To view your Reverse Matches, just go to the Search page and click on Reverse Matches.
A blog is short for "weblog". According to Webopedia, a blog is a Web page that serves as a publicly accessible personal journal for an individual.

A quick and easy way to find interested matches. "Let's Meet" shows you the photo of a potential match. You can heart them, or you can skip them. When you are using "Let's Meet", if you and another member both slide each other's photos into the 'heart' pile, then we'll let both of you know by sending a notification email. If either of you slide the photo to the 'x' pile, then nothing happens - if you don't heart someone, it doesn't mean they're hidden from you forever.
It means that if you made an in-app purchase in this App but on another device you can restore those purchases with your Apple ID log in credentials without having to pay again.
Some members have advised us that they have received emails asking for 'confirmation' of their usernames and passwords. Please do not respond to these types of emails.

Suspicious emails should be forwarded to email@example.com.
If you have already responded to a phishing email with your sign-in information, please sign into your account immediately and change your password.

The following are just a few examples of the phishing emails that have been sent to our members:
The Do's for Primary Photo:
What's a primary photo, you ask? This is the photo that appears on every page of your profile, and a smaller version shows up when other members search for matches.
In other words, this photo is how other members of the Longislandmatchmaking.com community get to know you. So make a great impression with these tips:
DO use a recent photo. Within the last six months is best.
DO make it a photo of just you. It's your moment in the spotlight!
DO keep it up-close and personal. Most people like to use a good headshot or head and shoulders.
DO have it look like you. Use an image of what you look in daily life, not all dressed up.
DO smile. Our site's members find a smile to be the most appealing image.
DO crop out the "white space" around the photo. Otherwise, your photo will appear smaller and the file size will be increased.
Do put your best frontal face.
Your frontal face which is not obscured will be more attractive.
The Don'ts for Primary Photo:
DON'T wear sunglasses or a hat. They obscure the real you. Ditto for other distracting head gear, accessories, or, a really loud scarf.
DON'T use a dark or blurry photo. It won't reflect what you really look like... and signals that you don't care about your photo.
DON'T submit that red-eyes shot. Even if it's one of your favorites, the sci-fi red-eye effect is a deal-breaker, trust us.
DON'T let the background grab all the attention. Keep the backdrop of your primary photo simple.
DON'T show too much skin. Photos that are too racy won't be posted.
DON'T wear a big pattern. In a small photo, a busy pattern can be distracting and unflattering.
DON'T cut people out of photos. Chances are, it just won't look right. Find another image you like instead.
DON'T use images of celebrities. Or copyrighted material, like an image of your favorite cartoon character.
DON'T submit photos of your kids without you. Photos of you with them are just fine, though.
