I'm new to Match and just want to know if you should respond to form messages that say "he's interested"?  There's no personal note or anything.  I haven't contacted anyone so far, because I'm not real confident because of my age.  I did try really hard with the photos, though.  I have three posted.  I did notice right away that  some people are only instant messaging because they didn't buy membership.

It seems that every IM I have gotten they're asking me to download Yahoo Messenger so we can chat and exchange pics.  I don't know what the big deal is with Yahoo.  I never downloaded it.

I'm new to match also.  So far, I haven't posted my picture but I did get some messages.  I haven't responded because when I seee their pictures, it would be a waste of my time.

I would recommend at least two photos, one head shot and one full body shot.   I did take two of my shots using a timer, and one was taken at a party.  I did have the party shot worked on by a photography place, they removed a person out of the shot and brought it up a little closer.  I did not have myself photoshopped on any of my photos, because that could backfire on you later.  I have received messages by some men that they liked my shots.
