Who is really signed up here?
Despite being a new member, you will receive tons of messages from different people during your first few minutes of successfully creating an account. This can happen because Spdate creates artificial profiles or bots as users when there is low activity inside the site.
Spdate said that the purpose of this provision is to prevent the interruption of members chatting, which is a key feature on the site. They also do this when the number of active users is decreasing.
You will know whether someone is an artificial user through an icon on their profile pictures next to their name that says "UP" which stands for "Unreal Personality."
If the UP icon on a profile is green, there is a higher chance that this profile will reply to you. If it is red, then the profile is currently busy talking to other members.
