You can change your zip code to a different one and hope he doesnt find you in search, if you want to make your photos public.

keep your photos PRIVATE.. if you are interested in someone you can send them your private photos. This will also decrease the barage of msgs you get.


btw why cant they know you are here?

Yes. Keep your photos private and perhaps use a different post code.

Does anyone in your family know you're on here? Without wanting to delve into your private life but I wonder why you can't let them know.

You can only block someone after they contacted you. Never mind your middle name, OP, It won't mean anything to him.

Dear OP, you're 34 and have children / child. Surely you can express yourself and give yourself the right to do what you want. Why is your Uncle here? Is he scared of the family finding out that he, too, has a profile here?

Ummm...as far as clit ring, if I had one I wouldn't advertise it either. I dont even advertise that I have a tattoo on my shoulder.........I suppose I have now......lol. No one's business.

What makes the difference? Why on earth would anyone think that it is so bad being on a date site?

You aren't married?

Because i just had a look at Op's Posting History and she's posted a lotta stuff in the "Sex" Forums.
So,my guess is she doesn't want her Uncle to know it's "her".

According to what I've read, you can't block someone specifically, until they try to write to you. After you block someone, they wont know that you have, unless they try to write to you again.

If the guy you fear has set up a profile with his accurate age on it, you can block mail from his age range, without him writing to you first, you then have to accept that no one ELSE his age can write to you.

And as Cowboy said, this is a public site, as most dating sites are, and someone can find that you are on one, without themselves posting a picture of their own. I'd suggest that bit is time to get used to the idea that your family knows the real you.

Wouldn't your uncle have to implicate himself in order to expose you?

You can also make your profile unsearchable, so it won't come up in a search. If your uncle comes into the forums tho, he will be able to see your profile that way.
