Messages

    Every time you answer a message a copy of it will be saved. Keep in mind that once a message is deleted it is no longer possible to recover it.

  • Where can I find the answers to the messages I sent?

    The messages you receive from the other HotDateX users are stored in the “Messages” page. The unread messages are stored in the “New messages” tab. Once you read a message it will be automatically moved to the “Received messages” tab. Please note that in the “Messages” section there is an “Archive” tab: the messages older than 30 days will be automatically stored there. This is to make the new messages easier to find and to make easier to reply to an ongoing conversation.

  • How can I customize the messages I send?

    Whenever you wish to contact another user you will get to the “write message” page. Our system generates automatically a subject for your new message, containing your gender and your age. If you don’t like the automatic subject you can write one of your choice directly into the “subject” field. You can either select a preset message written for you by the HotDateX team or write yourself a custom message. If you wish to save a custom message and subject you simply click on the “save” button. They will be saved and will appear at the top of the fast messages. It is possible to save up to three combinations of custom message and subject.

Contact proposals

  • What is a contact proposal?

    Whenever our system finds a partner compatible with your profile you will receive an email with the partner’s details. By clicking on the button in the email you will be able to see the partner’s profile. If the proposed partner meets your tastes you will be able to get in touch by sending him/her a message. By logging in to your private area on HotDateX you will receive further contact proposals. The contact proposals will contain all the information about the proposed profile: age, region of residence, physical appearance and preferences. If you particularly like a proposed profile you can save in your “Favorites”.

  • Why am I receiving fewer contact proposals lately?

    Starting from your registration to HotDateX our system will analyze all the available profiles to find out the ones that are most compatible with yours. You will not receive a fixed number of contact proposals every day, week or month. Whenever a user modifies his/her profile this will be again compared with yours and, if it matches your preferences, we will send you a new contact proposal. Please also note that setting very strict research criteria, such as a very small age range, you may receive a smaller number of compatible profiles.

  • Why did I receive a contact proposal from a person who does not live in my same location?

    There are people who look for erotic dates in the city they live in, while others look for romance in other cities or countries. For example it is possible that people who travel a lot and frequently visit your city may be interested in having a date with you, even if their residence is elsewhere.
