How do I update my profile photo?
Click on Profile page (on top menu) and then click on Change Profile Photo. You will be asked to upload a photo and crop it to smaller size. There is a minimum size for profile photo and if your photo is too small it might not be accepted. Please keep your images above 150px in width and height to ensure they are accepted. Please try to upload nice quality photos to ensure your profile (and our site) looks good (no low quality grainy photos please). Some members photos are displayed on the home page and the better your photo, the better chance of new members joining to talk to you!
You can also upload your Gravatar image however, please be advised that only profile photos showing your face are acceptable.
You cannot remove your profile photo – all members are required to have a profile photo of their face and those without will be removed from the site more sooner than later. We are strict about that so please do not test this theory.

What is the “Match %” sign on each members profile?
The Match is a percentage this member matches with you based on several criteria. Current matching algorithm includes: Age, Country, City, State, Relationship type seeking, Body type, Interests (small percentage). This might be adjusted when the matching feature is more developed. This should serve as a guideline of overall match based on several elements when searching for members on the list. If you are getting over 50% match with this member that means they either live near you and are similar age or they are similar age and are looking for similar thing (relationship or dating ) etc. If you are getting more than 70% then this person is likely very local to you and of similar age and looking for same type relationship as you. We hope this feature will become more attuned but it is not developed by us. We have requested more specific matching features, we will update you if and when it happens.

How old is this site?
We have started operating in September 2017.
What made you create this site?
We are an AMWF couple (a web designer and a teacher/writer) who met on a similar site few years ago (now defunct). We saw a niche and opportunity to recreate it but better. We are constantly improving and adding new features to the site to make it for a richer and fun experience and create a sense of community and understanding for our members. Thanks for joining us. We love working on this project.
Why aren’t there as many members on this site? OkCupid has zillions of members. I’ll go there instead.
We started this site with 0 members and have never engaged with any bots or fake profiles. All members who joined us are real as far as we know (with occasional spammer which we remove as soon as we are made aware of one) and we never plan to create fake memberships to attract members. As a result, it takes longer to grow the member list. We are not trying to be like and are not like the big guys, and we are a niche community so it’s harder to reach the right people to join. Ok Cupid or Match.com are open to everyone, we are open to Asian men and women who love them. When you go to a regular dating site, you don’t know who likes who and half the time, they are not interested in your race or type. Here you know they are. We also have Groups to specify closer interests such as AMBF and AMWF.
