This question is very frequently asked on RedHotPie and there are many answers to offer. Firstly, we would need to ensure there are no technical or system-related reasons for your lack of replies.
Please note that on RedHotPie, you will NOT get a reply from the other party if you simply send your private album. We believe the best contacts begin with a proper message with a good introduction and other important information. If you only send your album, the other party WILL NOT be able to reply if they are a Guest user. Send a message with some words and the other party will then be able to message you back.
Please also note that if you have set your profile to invisible, while the other party may be able to reply to you, they may not because they cannot see your full profile and work out if you're a match or not. As some users do receive a high volume of messages, only those with a visible profile may get a reply. If you are not sure if your profile is visible or not, check your notifications area. If your profile is set to invisible, you will be give an alert and a link to make your profile visible again.
Also, Guest users on RHP only have 7 days to reply to a message. We have this system in place to better facilitate matches and keep communication flowing. If you do not get a reply from a user, then it's possible that they are not currently seeking new contacts or have not logged on to RHP in a while. If you're sure that the user may be interested in your profile, then please try messaging them again.
Finally, please keep in mind that if you messaged a Guest user and you were the last person to reply in the Conversation, the next day, they will not be able to resume that Conversation so you will need to start a new Conversation with that Guest.
User Related Reasons
Please note that if you do not match what the other party is seeking on RHP, they may not reply. Most people do their best to let the other person know that they aren't a match, but as some people receive a lot of messages each week, if you are clearly not what they are seeking, it's understandable that they won't reply. Please don't take this personally. Instead, focus on people who are looking for someone like you. This means you should read profiles and note things about the other party instead of just writing to people whose photos you like, or just because they are new on RHP.
Keep in mind that if YOU do not have a fully completed profile on RHP, then it's very hard for the other party to work out if you might be a match or not. Many people have said that messages are the best way to find out, but given the volume of messages that some people receive, it's best to have as much information as possible on your profile to make life easier for others, AND to stand out from the pack. In our observations, people who have a good selection of photos, have a friendly write-up and are photo verified get the best rate of response. If you have NO photos, NO write-up and are unverified, please have a think as to whether you would bother replying to someone who is seemingly not that bothered to make an impression.
Lastly, please make sure you are polite and civil in your opening messages to people. We are aware that RedHotPie is an adult-oriented App/website but that does not mean that our members want sexually explicit messages as openers. If you wouldn't say it to someone at a bar or pub, then please don't write it to our members.
