Why won't you approve my photos?
We're busy welcoming a lot of new members this weekend due to the "Free Week Weekend." Those who have never tried Cache' Connections before are enjoying free membership for one full week. If you'd like to take advantage of this great opportunity, contact us by midnight on Monday night!
One common question or issue with Cache' Connections is with regard to our primary photo guidelines.
FAQ #36: What are the primary photo guidelines?
Member’s two primary photos must include one head shot and one body shot taken against a plain wall or door. These must be recent photos taken of you (within 3 months) and must not misrepresent you in any way. Thereafter, you may post up to six additional photos. No suggestive photos are allowed, including nudity, obscenity or inappropriate clothing. For more primary photos do's and don'ts click here.
Why the primary photo guidelines? Before launching the website, our research revealed that one of the major complaints with online dating was stale or outdated photos. Because we are all about integrity at Cache' Connections, we strive to prevent any misleading information. Members who are diligent about having their headshot and bodyshot taken against a plain wall or door (no one said it had to be white!) are sending a message to their connections that they are serious about their intentions. It's not always easy or convenient, we know. We help by having a photographer at our larger events who will take your photos for just $15 - a great investment!
Photos are not required of our members, so don't feel that you need to have these available before you join. However, research also reveals that those with photos receive a much more positive response. So grab a friend and a digital camera, slap yourself up against a wall and say cheese! You're actually saying a whole lot more. If I can do it, you can too!
