About Tall Dates


What is a "Beta Version"?

Basically the term 'beta' describes the development stage of a technical project, when many changes are still being made. In the case of Tall Dates, we have gone through several rounds of testing and made a lot of changes along the way. We feel the project is solid enough to be on the web, but we're still working on a few features like an integrated chat function. While the site is still in 'beta', we would love to hear your feedback about Tall Dates, especially if there are any enhancements you would like to see.

How does the payment process work?

Our FREE membership is a great way to dip your toe into the dating pool. To be really pro-active about meeting guys however, you'll need to put yourself out there a little more.

You can usually find an "Upgrade" link near the top of every page, once you click it you'll be able to see all of the features available to each membership level. Once you've decided to switch to a paid level of membership, just follow the links to upgrade your account.

You must have a FREE Basic Account before you can upgrade to our Deluxe membership levels. All of our payment processing is handled through PayPal. Their fully secure systems have been reviewed by Trust-e and the Better Business Bureau's Online department. PayPal accepts payments via Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card and American Express. Over 35 million people trust PayPal with their money and you can too.

As soon as you complete the quick, and easy transaction in the PayPal system, you will return to the Tall Dates site. You will have to log-in to Tall Dates again to access your new membership level.

Is the 3-Day Deluxe Account a trial membership?

Our 3-Day Deluxe is set up like all of our Deluxe memberships. The only thing that is different is the time of the subscription. It's easy to pay $3 for three days so you can spend the weekend sending notes to other members and hanging out in our chat room. Like all of our Deluxe subscriptions, the 3-Day Deluxe Account will send you a warning before you are billed again and you can cancel your subscription or change your account type at any time.

Why do I have to log in again for CHAT?

The basic explaination is that it's something seperate and only for Deluxe members. We felt it was important to make our core service available, so we've concentrated our development resources on the main portions of the Tall Dates service. Now that the site is up and running, we will concentrate on improving our basic offerings. The more technical explaination is that the CHAT functions we currently employ are an "off the shelf" program that we tried to integrate into an existing system. Having users re-login was a quick "work around" integration solution.

Why can't I upgrade to a premium level?

We are taking a stepped approach with this project. We felt it was important to make our core service available, so we've concentrated our development resources on the main portions of the Tall Dates service. Premium features tend to require a longer development cycle to sort out an array of technical and integration issues. We have a few premium features in mind and hope to launch a premium membership level sometime in 2004.

Login and Registration Issues


Why should I register?

Registering as a FREE MEMBER is quick and easy. Registered members can access more profiles than unregistered users. The level of access depends on the membership account you belong to.

To register, you will need to specify a username and password, and a valid email address. Entering your email address will not leave you open to 'spam' because all messages sent between Tall Dates members are sent through our system. (Difference between email and Tall Dates Messages)

To complete the registration process, the Tall Dates system will send you an email with instructions for the final part of the registration, so a valid and working email is mandatory.

Why can't I login?

The majority of members having login difficulties are using an incorrect username or password. Double check your records and try typing more slowly. Sometimes it's just a case of transposing numbers (Making 12 into 21 for instance) The Tall Dates system can send you an email with your correct username and password if you can remember what email address you used when registering.

Sometimes people only think they've become a member when in reality they were just visiting Tall Dates as a gues. Do you remember registering for Tall Dates? You must register in order to login. Sometimes people check out the site and leave without registering. If you're sure you have already created a Tall Dates account, click the forgotten username/password link and the Tall Dates system can send you an email with your corect username and password.

Profile Posting Issues


How do I post a Profile?

You can post several profiles at the same time. To make the most of this feature, you'll need to decide a dating strategy. Do you want to find Mr. Right AND Mr. Right-Now?

Targeted profiles get targeted responses, so once you know what your objectives are, you can tailor each of your profiles to attract a specific type of guy. To post a profile:

Hey my profile is gone! I thought I saved it. How do I get it back?

Maybe you didn't complete the profile creation process. Tall Dates will save your incomplete profiles for up to two hours so you can complete the process in stages. To finish a personal profile:

If your profile was incomplete and you couldn't get back to it for more than two hours after you started it, then it is gone for good. Our system is automated to clean out the database and there is nothing we can do to get the data back once it has been scrubbed from our system.

If your profile was more than two hours old and you're sure it posted successfully, i.e. you saw it online and it has suddenly disappeared, please contact as to fix the problem.

Tall Dates Messaging Issues


What's the difference between email and my Tall Dates mailbox?

When you reply to a personal profile on Tall Dates.com, you're sending a message from your Tall Dates mailbox to the Tall Dates mailbox of the user who posted the profile. It is a closed system. E-mail on the other hand, can be sent to and from any email address on the Internet. Because it is not open directly to the Internet, you can't send or receive email directly to or from a Tall Dates mailbox.
