Check out this section to learn everything about messages and how you can make a great first impression when chatting with other users.
- Why does nobody answer my messages?
If you are not sure why people aren't getting back to you, it might be due to the content of your message and therefore it may be beneficial to try another approach.
Try to be more creative and use something that will catch a user's attention. For example, rather than copying and pasting the same message to everyone you like, read their profile first, see what their interests are and send an appropriate message.
Additionally, don't forget to add pictures of yourself with of the best possible quality.
- Will deleting my message delete my match as well? As soon as you delete a message thread with a user, you also delete the match with the user. You will only be able to contact this user again if they message you after you delete the thread from your side.
- How can I view older messages?

You can also scroll through older conversations on the left side of the messenger window however please note that it is not possible to recover deleted conversations.

- What is 'Request a Selfie' and how does it work?
'Request a Selfie' is a new feature on Hot or Not, which adds an extra layer of security for our users. Female users can now request a selfie from male users, so that they know who they are talking to!
When the male user initiates a chat with a female user, she will have the option to request a selfie. This request will show up in the conversation, and the male user will be directed to take a photo.
Male users need to ensure that they have allowed access to their webcam or phone camera. The selfie is only visible to the user that has requested it, and is not added to the male user's profile.

Before you reply to a male user’s message, you can select 'Request a Selfie', and your request will be sent straight to him. He can take a quick photo of himself then and there using his webcam or phone camera, and it will automatically be sent back to you.
Just remember that you can only request a selfie before you have replied to his message and should the user in question decline your selfie request, you will see a notification.
