Frequently asked questions about Datecolumbians:
1. Why might members get lots of attention and engagement on Datecolumbians?
Our model connects free members with paid members of both sexes from across the world. This enables more people to benefit from the site, and can result in paid members receiving higher response rates and attention. Free members are attracted to the service and verified through our partners. To qualify as a free member you need to provide accurate and quality content for your profile, including photos, videos, and a profile description. You also need to be active on the website and follow the Communication Policy For Free Members. When reviewing a profile to see if it continues to qualify as free we consider the quality of content, profile description, and activity on the website. We use multiple patent-pending icebreaker tools on our products (Let’s Mingle, Boost) that facilitate member engagement. These tools are unique to our brand. We also attract members from various regions of the world who are highly interested in communicating and socializing online. We use our extended network of offline partners who verify free members in various regions and facilitate translation/interpreting services and communications. Some members don’t pay for services on Datecolumbians, which enables more members to actively participate.
2. Why is there no membership available that gives unlimited access to the site?
Our model is “pay-per-action.” Members only pay for services that they use (e-letters, chats, videochats). This may cost more than membership on other dating sites, but can also cost less. Members take the decision on how active they want to be. It may be the case that on other sites a customer purchases membership without receiving any attention at all. Fees that we charge customers cover the expenses of translators, broadcasters, photographers and partners that verify data and enable communication for free members. Fees on our platforms also enable premium customer support.
3. What are the benefits of global dating?
Datecolumbians services provide the opportunity for global online dating with people from over 40 countries. We believe that cross-cultural dating supports growth of cultural awareness and tolerance. We have created a rich environment and seek to foster safe communications online through our chats, videochats, live streaming, emailing, 360-videos, personal videoclips, and rich media exchange etc. We provide privacy protection for our members and enable them to learn more about each other before they decide to meet offline. We help our members connect to each other based on their mutual interests and similarities and not their location. Members are very different in terms of the goals they have in mind when registering on Datecolumbians. Members specify these goals on their profile. Some of our members are looking for a date, but in many cases they are very happy to find friendship, companionship, or online romance. Datecolumbians is not about hook-ups. Datecolumbians is focused on communication online.

7. Why is Datecolumbians a secure place to date online?
For us, the security of our members is a top priority. We follow legal regulations governing international dating. Therefore, we will never provide any personal contact information of one member to another member. Members are free to share or not share their contact information with other members.
We do understand that members exchange contact details in video chats etc, and obviously we do not prohibit this activity. However, we do warn our members to strictly follow the guidelines of our Dating Security Policy, which recommends not to provide any personal contact information (including links to SMM accounts, messengers, IDs, personal numbers etc.). We give this advice because no member can be completely sure how serious their partner is, and if communication happens outside of our system, we will not be capable of helping members who get into trouble.
We strongly recommend our members to follow these guidelines, given in accordance with New Jersey state law (NJ Rev Stat 56:8-171 : “Requirements for Internet dating services”):
(3) “Never include your last name, e-mail address, home address, phone number, place of work, or any other identifying information in your Internet profile or initial e-mail messages. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.”
(4) “If you choose to have a face-to-face meeting with another member, always tell someone in your family or a friend where you are going and when you will return. Never agree to be picked up at your home. Always provide your own transportation to and from your date and meet in a public place with many people around.”
