FIRST, SOME GENERAL GUIDELINES:
• You have to be at least 18 years old to use DMF. No exceptions!
Even if you’re just interested in being a ‘wingman’ you have to be 18 years or older. If you’re not 18 yet, come back when you are.
• You agree to create only one profile and to join only if you’re interested in dating or matchmaking for your friends. No lookie-loos.
• Use your own pictures and try to pick recent shots. You likely have some great pics from college, however if that was 10+ years ago, they’re likely a bit dated. Also, don’t use pictures with other people in them without everyone’s approval and don’t use pictures that you don’t own and/or have express (meaning legal) agreement to use.
• No children in your profile pictures ever. Even if they’re your kids and they’re super cute, you can’t upload photos that include kiddos (i.e. people under age 18).
• No pornographic material ever. Use good judgement when selecting pictures. We get that you’re all adults, but let’s keep the pictures to ones you’d be willing to show your Mom.
• Be yourself. If we discover you’re pretending to be someone you’re not, we’ll disable your account. And report you to law enforcement if your intentions are unlawful. Hopefully this won’t happen too often on DMF since your friends will be here to ‘keep you honest’ if you start stretching the truth. Your perfect match will like you for who you are so please don’t mislead or deceive.
• By using the Site, you represent and warrant that you have never been convicted of a felony involving domestic violence and/or sexual assault and/or are not required to register as a sex offender with any government entity. While we do not screen or conduct background checks on Daters or Wingman, we reserve the right to do so at any time. If you violate this provision, we will terminate your account and take any other legal action we deem prudent.
• Be respectful and use your best manners. We will not allow:
- Suggestive, obscene, threatening or harassing comments
- Offensive language related to race, ethnicity or sexual orientation
- Content that is defamatory, unlawful or libelous
- Mean or rude people
• No illegal activity or content that would create liability or violate the law.
• No spam or commercial activity. We’re about fun and dating, so if we catch you using DMF to spam or sell stuff, we’ll disable your account.
CREATING AN ACCOUNT
DMF gives all users the opportunity to play wingmen. You can also opt-in to be a Dater and provide us a bit more information so we can find you great matches. As we’re successful and your ‘single’ status changes to ‘taken’ you can opt-out as a dater and stay on as a wingman.
When creating an account, you must:
- Be the owner of or have a license to use any and all pictures and information provided both in your public profile and provided privately to DMF during the creation of your account;
- Do not post your contact information, including but not limited to, phone numbers, email addresses, social media accounts (unless DMF provides an opportunity to link your social network account with your DMF profile) or home address.
Daters cannot communicate with each other until after their respective Wingmen have had a conversation. So you must invite a friend, relative or confidant to join you in finding the perfect mate. As a Dater you can browse and save matches who you think are interesting. But your Wingman then helps you to find more about them and whether you will be a good fit. Choose your Wingmen wisely!
