Do I need to post a photo? :
While not required, photos are important. Experience has proven that members are 14 times more likely to express positive feedback and engage in communication when photos are provided.
Though photos are recommended, there are those that strongly feel that photos should not be a prerequisite in the dating scene. These people feel that requesting a photo is superficial and should not be the predetermining factor when choosing to date another member.
You will be notified when a user tries to contact you using any of the available communication methods Harei At has to offer. You can see these notifications on your Dashboard (clicking "Home" in navigation bar.) You will also be alerted to the number of messages you have by a number on the mail icon located on the upper right section of the page.
