He is the love of my life, and I wouldn't change anything for the world! —Guest blueeyes POF Dating is What It is POF dating is not that bad of a site. Know that it's a tool, and the rest is entirely up to us. My experience has been, on a scale of one to ten, a five.—Guest fishnetstockings Picky Women on POF Dating Site I have been on many dating sites, including POF.
Some pics are old or flattering, but for the most part right on. I would say expect 75-95% of any responses men send out to be ignored and not replied to in the least. Just have to find a fish desperate enough to bite at anything shiny whether it has a tasty smell or not. Its a database of people who are generally after the same thing; dating and meeting others. The bottom line is, men get far fewer messages, far fewer messages returned. Well, it seems to work for the site operator, he got rich.
Some you never meet because you figure out that you are 'off' on a few things. Women may get views but no messages, so my advice is start casting yourself and not waiting for someone to find you. It can work really well potentially for these on the upper end with GREAT pictures and looks. you can be a good looking well built man, but still get no messages or very few ever returned. It must work for the advertisers who are the site's paying customers, or they wouldn't use it.
I Found the Love of My Life on POFBack in '07 I started my account on Plenty of Fish (POF). But I told him I was really not into this internet thing, and that if he wanted to pursue this, "Here is my email..." After that, we exchanged numbers and talked for two months, and we've been inseparable ever since. The site can work, and I know many couples that met through POF are now couples and have married.
We have been married now for almost two years and have known each other for a total of five years. All the site can do is put us out there - it's up to us singles to make the right connection. I feel this way: if you are in it for all the right reasons, up front about yourself and your needs, it can work.
Their initial slogan was “put your credit card away”, indirect response to complaints made on other dating sites that charged in order for users to see other people’s profiles.
These days they themselves offer a premium upgrade, but they still rely heavily on people signing up for free and interacting with their site on a daily basis.
They say have more dates set up, more relationships made, and more visits to their site than any other dating site online.
Those are some big claims because most people are familiar with their competition, who advertise heavily on television and online.
Plenty of Fish — also known as POF — is a popular dating site for singles.
With more than 3 million users, it's one of the largest dating sites out there.
Dating web sites can also be way less high priced than going upon an actual day.
