Are my details on Completely Free Dating safe?
Is online dating safe?
As long as you act sensibly and responsibly online dating will be safe for you. It is important that you never publish your personal details such as your address, phone number, email address, bank details or any other personal information that could be used by others. There will come a time when you feel ready to chat to someone away from the dating website and it is at that time that you need to use your personal judgement on when you feel the time is right to give out your phone number or email address. For advice on online safety please see our article Online Dating Safety Advice.
I think I’m in contact with a scammer, what do I do?
If you believe you are in contact with a scammer or even just concerned, please inform us by using the “report profile” button on the members’ profile page. It is important that you inform us immediately if a scammer has contacted you so we can prevent them taking advantage as soon as possible.

How many members can I contact a day?

How many chats can I have?
You can keep as many chats open as you like, there is no limit. You might, however, want to remove some older chats you no longer require to keep things neat and tidy by deleting them. Also, unlike some other free dating sites, we don’t have a time limit on chats, allowing you to keep them for as long as you need.
I had been sending messages to a member, but their messages have gone. What has happened?
This is usually due to the profile of the particular member being deactivated, either by choice or by the team at Completely Free Dating. When a profile is deactivated, any messages previously sent by that member are removed.
I received an email telling me I had a new message, but there was not one there, where is it?
This usually means that the person who sent the message has been removed from the site before you have had a chance to read the message sent to you. When someone’s profile is removed, their messages are also removed. This is to protect our members from scammers out there trying to make contact with innocent members.
I’m having difficulty uploading my photo, what do I do?
If you are having problems uploading a photo onto your profile, please contact us at [email protected] and attach the photo(s) to your email and we will upload them for you.
Do I have to upload a photo?
No, you do not have to upload a photo onto your profile, but it is recommended.
Many people choose to only view profiles which contain photos, so by not uploading one you could be limiting your exposure to other members.
Having a good quality photo can result in you making a great first impression. For advice in choosing an appropriate photo to upload please read our articles how to write an online dating profile and choosing the right online dating profile photo.
