The POF flirt feature is only one direction. Women can send to men but men cannot "flirt" with a woman. Quite often, I receive a flirt, but do not check it because it is awkward to follow up - the process is convoluted. Even worse is the "want to meet" feature because the web site does not tell me that a woman clicked on it. And when I go to check "want to meet" it asks me if I want to meet a woman (picture only) and I have to click on a very small link to see who wants to meet me.
