If you aren't getting matches, or match emails with people nearby, the first thing to check is your "Matchmaking Preferences":
  1. Clicking the person icon at the top-right corner, then click "Matchmaking Preferences."
  2. Set a "Distance" from your location, and click the red "Save" button at the bottom of the page.
If you're still getting matches from people outside of your area, it's likely because there aren't enough people that match your preferences in your area. (You can help MouseMingle grow by sharing our social posts, and talking about MouseMingle in your area.)
