Messages are the core of communication on hookupdatefree.
You can send a message to potential dates who are both online and off line, knowing that they can come back and pick the message up at any time, just like an email.
To send a message to a potential date via hookupdatefree click on their photo or screenname. This will bring up the member’s full profile.
At the bottom of their profile you should see an empty white box titled ‘Contact this match’.
Simply type what you want to say in this box and click on the grey button labelled ‘Mail>>’
To read your mail from potential dates, click on ‘My Messages’ in the menu bar on top of the screen.
This will take you to your inbox where you can view a list of your messages, starting with the most recent.
To open and read the message, simply click on the match’s name or message date.
Alternatively if you’ve opted to have email alerts, we’ll send an email to your registered address every time you have a new message, simply click on the link in this email (or paste it into your browser's address bar) to go directly to the message.
If you don’t want to receive these alerts click on ‘My Profile’ and check the ‘No’ button next to �New Message emails�.

Once a week members are presented with a Fast Flirt message so that they can make contact with as many matches as possible in one click. The Fast Flirt box will appear when you run a search.
Simply enter your message in the space provided. The message is sent to matches based on your default search criteria.
Once a member sends a Fast Flirt, the message goes into a queue for vetting by our moderation team. Upon approval the message is sent to matches. Please note that this may happen whilst you are offline and can take up to 24 hours to be processed. Fast Flirt messages cannot then be cancelled or deleted once sent.
If you don’t want to send a Fast Flirt simply ignore the panel.
