I had met & talked through POF app with a # of women. (in 99 reviews)
▼ Sort by: recent
I'm a paid subscriber on POF and as a very handsome man bewildered that NOT ONE woman has taken the time to simply read my well constructed honest profile. They simply press a button if they find you attractive. This one aspect alone is very very strange.
When contacting the ladies (where there is mutual attraction), I take the time to craft a humorous, intelligent, original first message. No cookie cutter BS. A message that truly shows I'm sincere and read their full profile. Proofread for typos and hit send. Amazingly I've received NOT ONE reply! Not even a simple thank you. I get twenty (so & so wants to meet you) per/day.
I'll go back to Zoosk where I had much more action with sincere woman, not cupids. This site is a true joke. For crying out loud, I'm reaching out to women 43 to 52 years of age who paint themselves out to be evolved and intelligent. Sad that most profiles speak a good game yet there's not been one sincere woman in the whole bunch.
I'm a rare honest, intelligent, gift of a man with great life experience and good looks to boot. I'm monogamous in relationship and everything these women say they're looking for. So much for seeing what's standing right in front of you ladies. Stop acting like kids in a candy store. Wake the F up and stop playing games for it's not attractive. A true joke of a site.
User profile: (Bibittybob) Which I'm sure will now be problematic after writing this review however it is well worth it just to get my true feelings out there to the public.
PS: Don't be fooled by Mollie G's (or any review giving props to the free site) 5 star review as whomever this person is it's a phoney review. She states she met her soulmate here (going out on many dates) however without communication how could this possibly be true using the site as a Free service? Isn't communication essential just in order to even meet up let alone build the necessary trust to even wish to do this...the FREE site makes this an impossibility.
In order to read any reply to any messages you would have to be a PAID subscriber. The Free service does not allow one to reply to anyone? Don't bother to reply Mollie G cause I'm a straight up NYer living in the big city my whole life. I can smell a bad Fish a mile away and already know your POF's own Dept. running BS interference.
This pertains to any of the reviews stating they use the Free service and love it. The free service is made to frustrate the hell out of you till you pay to join.
I had never previously used a dating service but upon seeing a commercial for POF decieded to give it a try. I went on a few dates with some very nice men however there was no real sparks for the first few months however in my third month of using the site I was lucky enough to meet my perfect match. I cant begin to express my graditute to POF for providing this free service and allowing me the opportunity to meet such a wonderful man. I definitely recommend this site.
took the chance and upgraded, Big mistake< HUGE MISTAKE !!!!!
Nothing but a bunch of overweight,self centered, narcissistic, crazy psycho bi#ches that are looking for an ATM to raise their half dozen illegitimate love children from numerous baby daddies. If you want a fat bi#ch with an attitude that's on welfare, food stamps and has herpes then go for it.
WHO THE F#CK DO THESE WOMEN THINK THEY ARE???????????
I was never on this site--however, I would like to remind the women to perform mandatory criminal background checks on men. (and vice-versa)..been verified is a good one. Buster11956 is not to be trusted. He is on all the dating sites...ladies beware.
Site is a rippoff...closed my account for no reason and stole my money....this site is horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I tried plenty of fish in 2012. It was just a bunch of boys acting like men! Then I met someone. He was wonderful but it never worked out cause he was a momma's boy. Tried it again in 2014. Between a bunch of piece of $#*!, ass searching, dogs I found what I'm thinking is the last good one. We started dating and got married August 2015! I have to give POF a bit of credit cause I couldn't have done it without that site. But I definitely delt with a bunch of $#*! until my husband came alone.
Good luck! Don't expect too much though!
Not gonna lie... I'm not bitter at all and honestly I just wanted to hookup.... but the women on this cite are BBW's (which is not an issue, just not my preference) and extremely fine women... I find it hard to believe the fine women on this site is having to result to a dating website... They literally can have any man they want...
I believe it's just another form of indirect attention that some women thrive for.... They wanna be told about their beauty and such but don't want it to go further than that...
Site is full of rude qunts. 99.9% of the *itches never respond. The ones that do have no intention of going out with you One qunt had the nerve to call me creepy. I ripped her a new one. Another one just wanted to be a facebook friend. The games are never ending. These broads will favorite you and never send an email, nor will they respond to an email. I suspect POF sends these teasers to get you to upgrade. Another game is a young pretty gal, 20 years your junior, will say hi, you respond, and they want you to go to another dating site. I suspect the majority of the females on this site are fake and scammers The ones that do respond are fugly (fat and ugly) and/or 10-15 years older than you. At least the shunning is free. The POF staff should screen their applicants and kick the qunts off that do not respond. I am DONE with POF. It's the place where all the stuck up rude qunts take refuge. For those of you who blew me off...BITE ME!
I found this site filled with men that have been on this site for years, I found that these men were not really serious finding a relationship when they claim that is what they want.
Also alot of married men and cheaters looking for a hookup. Don't waste your time with this site.

I have had two unsavory experiences on PoF. The first came under the guise of a 'hopeless romantic' who wanted to connect with friends (and plainly stated he was there to avoid 'hookups' and casual sexual encounters). I thought he was sincere, and I most certainly fell for the guise as he continuously asked me out on dates (not hangouts, dates). It wasn't until, after being introduced to his friends, that I was given the lengthy silent treatment. I am so low-maintenance it is ridiculous and all that I do ask when in a budding relationship is that the line of communication stay open. Nothing, for days. No responses to simple 'Hello, how are things?' messages. I found out he was seeing several women from the website. He was too cowardly to simply say he wasn't interested and I suspect he liked the thought of having other women 'on the side'. The sad thing is I purposely sought out an older male to avoid these juvenile head games. Instead I found that PoF is full of divorced 'hopeless romantics' who are nothing less than emo, wannabe players. I get it, you want to explore casual dating -- at least have the decency to let the other person know you're spreading yourself thin. I would not have bothered otherwise.
The other gentlemen I encountered was just insane. No, really. He still texts me (after my repeatedly asking him not to do so) with updates on his therapy and medications.
PoF is a PoS masquerading as a dating site. They are all there for sex. If you have an account, delete it. Try the old-fashioned method.
Has anyone actually met on this site that ever got married?
Ooh, what a sensitive little bunch of $#*!es that look at and edit/approve profiles. Just because they are giving you upgraded service for wasting your valuable (or, apparently not) time, you fat $#*!es sitting at home? You are going to go to bat for (another) of Satanist Barry Diller's companies? This site is, always has been, and always will be the world's saddest dating site.
Their tagline should be: PoF - Free advertising for Hookers, housewives, and whores. Avoid, and they own Matchcom and OKCupid, and TICKETMASTER also. What a sad state of affairs that some fat, rich, satanist can sit and make more and more money every day. Consolidation is the worst thing that can happen to capitalism. Hey Markus, FU!
I have been on POF for one year. In September my profile was hacked into. POF sent me a message, asking me if I used any different method to gain entry to my account. Before I could answer them , they sent another message, saying they were closing access to my profile. I have emailed them 4 times, once in September & 3 times in October. The response is always the same. Thank you for contacting POF, we are having unusual amounts emails. We will have one of our service pros contact you. Try our help apt to gain access to your site. When they shut you down you're no longer able to access the site. Your email address ,and password no longer exist to POF. If you manage to find there phone # don't bother calling, you will get another robot asking for your life history. And that will say if you don't give the proper info no one will talk to you because they don't have the time. I still have 2 months time that I paid for, NO it's not Free if you want to chat with a possible date. POF sucks!!
Plenty of Fish...well this lake is not actually a lake. Its an office or dungeon with 40-50 year old computer sloths that run the show and play god! Conventional wisdom will tell us that love isnt something you go looking for, but at some point in your life bumps into you at the supermarket, at a football game, friends bbq, someones wedding etc etc. Yet for some reason we have all fallin for this fake fantasy that online dating is genuine and the way to go in this day and age. I am believer in love! Ive believed in it a few times in my life and will continue to do so as im an old fashioned romantic. I feel shame and regret in myself for being takin in by these so called "matchmakers". There are no sites at all in the online dating world that arent out for devastation and financial gain. Sure there are reviews about people citing all the great things about them but come on...we all no reviews arent formed by actual individuals. We are smarter than this. Heres my review ladies and gentleman...in poem form. Tonight we sit on our phones/computers piling through dozens of profiles of can he/she be the ones...hoping to find love and happiness in a digital age, glamorized ads that promise they are the best and all the rage...at what cost do we put on our hearts to find a match, all the while these heartbreakers are laughing at us while we look for a catch...im not impressed at how the year 2015 i was takin for my money, just to find a beauty i can call my honey...take heed all you lonely and dismayed, do not use any more dating sites because you are going to get played.
So theres a review you can take to the bank...oh wait it was 100% free!! Take care all you wonderful beings looking to find something that we all need and want! Love ya!
I heard it was a free dating site but it turns out that if you don't buy up grades you can't see who sent you a meet me .why do they say it's free and it isnt.it seems to me if u don't pay its no point in having the profile on that stupid site.
I was on this website and was talking to a couple of really nice guys when I got a really nasty message from one guy.My reply was as nasty as his but he had me banned.I haven't been able to create a new account or stay on without any issues with new names.I haven't used foul language, pictures or anything.I guess I should've just had that one guy banned in the first place but to make a long story short, don't use this website.They'll ban you for anything ANYTHING anyone tells you or asks them to.I guess I'll just stay single for another 10 -30 years lol
I can't even begin to describe how much I hate this site. I tried multiple times on here, deleting and remaking a profile. I have finally given up and here is why. This site is not for serious people trying to find a serious relationship. First of all, the majority of the people on this site are disgusting, ignorant, trash. And when you think you've stumbled upon a decent looking guy who seems to be normal, has a good job, and seems to have the same interests as you, one of a few things happen: they don't respond to your messages, they do respond but its only to insult you, they respond but only to ask you if you'll suck their d*ck, and finally they respond and end up being a completely fake profile. Then they claim that the matches and top prospects are people who are similar to you and what you're looking for and you have a higher % chance at finding love with one of these guys. This is complete and utter bull$#*!. There is NO possible way for them to really be able to determine quality matches personalized to you without requiring further questioning and analysis of who you are and what you look for. Yes, they have chemistry tests and a needs assessment test both of which are extremely long and neither of which is required to be done by users. So how can they possibly claim that they are determining the best matches for you when the basic profile questions hardly explain who you are and what you are looking for. Next, as far as the "UPGRADED" membership plans they offer, it is completely ludicrous that they charge people to "upgrade" because they only offer about 3 other additional features when you upgrade. Now I was never stupid enough to upgrade, but when I re-created a profile at my last attempt with this site, it somehow was giving me these upgraded features and saying that I was an upgraded user. Here is what an "upgrade" gets you: you can see if your messages were read or not, you can see who clicked YES in the meet me, and you can see when a user was last online. THAT'S IT! That is literally all you get when you pay to have an upgraded membership. Total complete bull$#*!. I didn't have high expectations to begin with seeing as how this is essentially a free dating site, but what I experienced horrible. I got messages from ghetto and trashy people who don't have jobs, an education, or even know how to form a proper sentence when messaging someone. I got replies from men that I thought seemed like someone I would be interested that were unbelievably mean and uncalled for. Instead of simply ignoring me or responding saying they weren't interested, they would call me names and say horrible things to me and tell me I was way out of my league. Now a lot of you will read this and think "oh this girl must be fat, ugly, and desperate. I can assure you, I am none of those things. I am simply someone who leads a busy life and doesn't think that picking up men in a bar is a good way to meet a decent guy. I would go to meet someone and when I showed up, they were someone TOTALLY different and had used someone else's images. I am not the kind of person who reviews things or complains even when I really don't like something, but this site is just complete and total bull$#*!. They market themselves as a dating site and talk about ways to find real love and relationships but offer no real compatibly testing. Not only that, they have nothing on their site about contacting them or their customer service. That right there shows me that they know how $#*!ty their site is and they could care less.
So ladies, if you are someone who is really looking to meet a decent man and maybe find a relationship, PLEASE do yourself a favor and DO NOT waste your time on this site. But hey, if all you're looking for is sex and are one of the trashy women i've heard are on this site then by all means knock yourself out. And yes, i've been told by guys on this site that most of the women who contact them are disgusting and offer themselves up like whores. So if thats the kind of women you are, a women who clearly doesn't respect herself in ANY way, or you're the kind of man who wants a women like that, then maybe this site is for you. But as for us normal and decent men and women, do yourself a favor and just pay for a respectable dating site that has genuine capabilities for matching you with decent and normal people and the reputation to back it up.
As far as match making goes pof doesn't know how to bait a hook. The "meet me" feature is just a picture show. It has not led to a single conversation. Their matches for me are not even close to my preferences. And those few contacts from the men on this site are from the unwashed unshaven unemployed miscreants looking for a quick hook up.
What I am most upset about is how they help themselves to your bank account with an auto renew that you can't turn off. There is no way to contact the company after the fact to make a complaint or get a refund. It took me 3 tries to delete my account because they would redirect me during the deletion process and ask a question then tell you you can only delete your account when you are signed in. I had to sign in 3 times and I am still not sure if my account information has really been deleted. I wouldn't recommend this site to anyone. Buyer beware.
One of the worst sites, wast of time. Full of jobbliss, broke, liers. To many women just use it as a way to get attention. Showing clevage shots to get peoples compliments and people to view them there profile. Witch are usually the ones that $#*! and complain when people message them about sex. Same woman are on there year after year. Just doesn't bet any worse. Don't wast your time.
Don't waste your time lads. The women on here have elevated themselves so far above what they actually are, they think of themselves as goddesses. Problem is, in the main, they are all so bloody god damn average and not worth the effort they want you to put in. I'm off it for good. Lets find someone in real life that's not up their own a*se xxx
This month and maybe longer has started charging people to see who likes them. For years I used it before because it was free. They are starting to charge certain age groups, socio-demographics, ect......the whole reason I used them for years was because they were the best FREE online dating service.....now...just deleted my account and will sign up with one of the other 12 other "free" online dating sites.....cya POF!
There's nothing on this site that I wouldn't find in real life. I admit most guys are shallow or liars, some are just nasty or already have a woman. Great site for cheaters, but not for good people like me. Still trying though, because meeting people in real life takes too long.
I went through jerks, pervs, one ok relationship and a few more jerks before finding a man that I talk to for a week, met dated a week fell in love and less than 6 months of dating got engaged! I am happily in love with this man just as we both gave POF one last chance. It takes failed relationships but so does relationships not found online.
I can't blame POF, but I was on for about 1 week and was contacted by a male that seem like a dream come true. Out of curiosity I searched the web for anything that may be out there for him. Totally frustrated, I put in his listed occupation and a scam site came up that had the exact wording this man used. I have since been hit by 5 more scammers. They end up asking for money. POF was one of the top dating sites used by male and female scammers. What sucks, is you have to be a member on these sites to report them. I reported him to POF and did not get a response. The women scammers are under stopscammers.com. I find, men want trophies on their arms and sex, no regard for the female's needs. But I can't blame POF, we just need to use caution putting ourselves out there. Oh I'm still out there, just a lot wiser.
I wanted to place an ad on this site. I submitted my ad and paid the money. They emailed me back saying that my ad was not accepted and would not refund my money. They told me that is their policy. That's called theft in my books. Don't pay these guys a dime for advertising or membership.
Nothing but a scam, no one ever replies and you have to pay to find out who wants to meet you. I wanted to find a girl to talk to that would allow a gentlemen as my self to show them how a lady should be treated, and not treated like a sex object by many men as many do. I just want to find me a lady that I can talk to and will give me a chance to show her that not all men just want to hit it and quit it but actually want to know them and build something special together. On POF that will not happen apparently!
Here a lot of guys were pro gun and country like. Well, a lot also expressed no fat girls or women of color. Same with the men of color. So, I looked out of town and landed in Texas. So I told my mom ( mind you I'm thick, didn't lie and I am pretty. And I have a good career, never divulge that) I was going to Texas to meet him. Family was great we are still cool. But he looked disappointed when he met me...he was way bigger than portrayed. So he drops me. Then we get back together.....the fifth time I go to TX all the truth comes out. And he doesn't want to care for himself....no way. One good thing, But I'm moving there because I love the city!!! 2.5 million people, I better find a date!! Six month rule always applies! Good luck people.
This site is very inconsiderate to there customers. The site itself is cognitively overwhelming and they will do nothing about it,and you are flashed the same pics of the same people for years in front of your face you dont have any interest in and never will and if you see someone that you do like through there matches they send you 70% of the time they are some that lives in another state or to far away nt to mention that they expect money and if you dont pay them you cant use the site effectively and keep in mind that 90% of the men and women are on a site Called ASHLEY MADISON and this site POF is turning out to be like Ashley Madison dating site which is for affairs only and this site has many men with no respect for women they are rude and post right in there profiles there sexual wants and then blatantly ask you for sex. and these men have no heart or soul So if your looking for a good man you wont find one your chances ae better finding a sexual devient or sociopath Well pof is taking on the same characteristics because most of the men on the meet me feature are without clear pics of there faces and you will be charged a fee to be treated like a whore from the meet me feature which they shouldnt charge for considering more than 90% of the men that use the feature are on the ASHLEY MADISON site and will treat you badly plus i was on this site for more than a year and never seen someone i was slightly interested in through that MEET ME feature so i wont ever pay for it and you shouldnt either this feature is not worth a dime. The men and women on the ASHLEY Madison site dont show there faces and ask for personal information like your email and contact phone number so you are giving your number to someone that you havent seen there face which is a security risk so it is making online dating more dangerous than it was from the beginning, and it is obvious that a person is on ashley madison because they will not present a clear pic of there face without sun glasses so beware of men that do this or use pics from a distance because there is a reason for them being so elusive and is that someone that you can really trust if they hide even there faces from you right from the start and only post 1 pic of themselves
Impossible to contact PoF pursuant to a hack of my paid account. If you NEVER have a question or problem, PoF is probably OK. Hacked and username stolen 102715. Lost all my contacts, communications, etc. PoF response to multiple emails = none. Had to open a new account...do not pay! Use a search engine to read about PoF hacks. Lots of them. Apparently, hackers can obtain your bank info if you paid for a membership.
If you're male, they will block you without notice, citing offensive behavior, I've always been polite. Have noticed after seeking who is in my area, all females who have said pretty offensive things, offering sex for money (even written in their profiles), insults about your looks (wtf? i'm not judgmental but you should see some of these women), are allowed to continue membership whereas men are blocked without reason. If you have met someone nice, they will block you before you can exchange numbers. Due to their policy, if you ask for contact info, they will block you, too. So what's the point? They keep your photos after they ban you, too. Most depressing and loathsome dating site I've ever seen.
Seemed like a fake site. The site would try to convince me that certain women were a match. When I'd message them, I wouldn't even get responses back. And if I did, it was it they were high on something. I couldn't even understand the response. And despite telling the site I wasn't interested in some women, they would keep putting them back into my yes/no folder. I wrote POF about this and got nothing but a staged answer back. Not will administered at all.
Tip for consumers: Save your money, and go to a bar. You'll have better luck there.Ask Freddy about POF
POF has finally hit rock bottom, After implementing age restrictions, photo restrictions and losing functionality in general, they have recently removed the interest search, and changed emails to block the user name of people who would like to meet you. The site has lost pretty much all of it's functionality, and it would be great for its next replacement to come along to put POF out of business, with all the great features POF had in the beginning.
