One of the variables I wasn’t sure about was time commitment. Should I invest half an hour each day, or check on my account once a week? When I first started –after it had built up to about 20-30 matches– I felt a need to methodically whittle it down to a manageable number. The problem was, they kept coming more than I had time for. Now, I focus on those that have contacted me and peruse open matches only when I get a minute. If you’re like me, though, you might find yourself thinking about match communications even when you’re not logged onto the site.
