My account got hacked someone has stolen my identity, and changed the e-mail address. I am getting tons of messages, and I can't open them. POF never responds to e-mails, or answers the phone. Stay clear if you care about your reputation at all, they clearly don't!
The simple truth is women control the site. There are simply too many guys on here for the amount of women so much so even unattractive women get attention and the result is a site full of big headed women who are deluded who are very very picky indeed for what they offer back which is a chip on their shoulder and Grandiose delusions
The site itself isnt that bad but as I said its the content, most women are too lazy to fill in the details and simply put to ask them or they put I have great friends and family and they dislike arrogance.
As soon as you join you will get tons of meet me requests from clearly fake women all advertising some sleazy site on their profile
If you go on the site it is very very hard work, the women are extremely ignorant and you get a reply to maybe 1 in 30 messages, the vast majority of these women offer so little they shouldnt be ignoring anybody , even then it is just one word replies such as yes, okay and good, one of the women claimed she was shy but how can you be shy on messenger? Just an excuse for being socially inept
Lots of the women lie and say they have degrees yet work as a cleaner or such menial jobs and cant spell correctly
There will also be lists they have, you must be over such a height (despite the woman only being 5 foot 2) you must like dogs, all stupid things she wouldnt dare demand on a night out. Thats the problem, its like a catalogue for the women, they sit back and get replies and become divas. The fact even the fat ugly ones develop an attitude show its true that men will hit on anything. One profile headline which is typical said non readers of profile will BE IMMEDIATELY blocked. What a lovely way to come across but they dont care they know dopey men will message them anyway telling them they're lovely. Remember when women were warm and friendly? They made an effort, well then internet dating came along and it made them lazy chasing a pipe dream
The headlines that do make me laugh at these fools are the ones that say no liars or cheats. Who is going to admit that and stay away?
I spoke to a few ones that seemed decent but they just stopped answering for no reason - I guess more fresh meat came along. I have even been blocked just for sending a message to some women, seriously? I cannot believe the ego's on these lot, they should buy tickets on themselves
99% of them have a stupid yellow halo on their photos. Apparently its a snapchat filter and no doubt they think they are hip and unique but they all have it
Finally this may be controversial but from what i see its the truth. I was told years ago that if a women isnt married by 30 or settled down then there is something inherently wrong with her. There are tons of women in their late 30s who longest relationship is LESS than a year. That should tell you all you need to know and avoid these diva wackos like the plague
GL if you play on here but dont say I didnt warn you
I subscribed to POF..I lost my phone like 2 weeks later..I tried to call and email them..no response I didn't want a refund be just to which to a new profile..what a joke!! All they care about is money..I don't even have the profile anymore and they still took money out my account!! They need to be investigated and shut down!! I'm going to make sure I call my bank and red flag them for scamming
As POF as I like using the site and find it simple and fun, ive had no dates yet. Period. And that is not what im spending money for. With WeJustFit I had a date in my first month and although I know that's unusual, I still think that after 2 months I should be moving offline more. I've had interest and ive been interested, but nobody has 'grabbed' me at this point. Even in a small city like edinburgh I would have expected slightly better.
Beware of user name "blackerthanblackkk" from he's a scammer, user, manipulates multiple women on the site, claims to be looking for relationship but sweet talks women, sleeps with them, then block them and goes back on the site a repeats the same disgusting pattern. 99% of theses guys on there got ex issues, crackheads, just looking to blow off a load. This site should be called "plenty of hook ups"! You pay for what you get . free=trash!
I have been on this dating site for 3 years and more. Lots of men who want cyber sex, scammers and liars. I have been on different dating sites and they seem to be the same taking advantage of people through there credit card. I am deleting my profile as I speak. Be careful.
Did u hear pof in the sun newspaper some vile woman was getting dates from men to come round and have sex with her ten yr old daughter then finally found her dismembered body omfg r you for real that is the most disturbing thing I ever heard she was on match.com too dis scusting
Too many women posting FAKE PICS they found on the internet. I use TinEye to detect and then report them, yet they stay up for days. And this site wants my money? Get serious.
And POF shows people as being online for some time after they have logged off, up to 30 minutes in one test I did. Most dating sites do this, to make it look like lots of people are using the site and therefore so should you. Technically this became CONSUMER FRAUD once POF started asking people to upgrade to paid memberships. But the internet is still the wild west so anything goes.
The POF site and app do have some good qualities, but there's just TOO MANY DUDES competing for the few real women on there. I'd like to see them give more serious benefits for those who upgrade to a paid membership, like putting your message at the top of the heap. As it stands now, there will be dozens of non-paying dudes sending messages and it's a lottery as to whether yours will ever be seen, even if you pay for upgrade.
I was under the impression that a membership was $10 and when I put in my credit card lo and behold it charge me $81.40 3 hours later when I noticed it I tried to cancel and they said I can't cancel but they can downgrade me and give me half of my money back if you're reading this stay away from this site it's useless it's worthless is nothing but a money scheme to steal your money and show you hookers and prostitutes no real people hardly are on here I would love to give this site a -10 Buffalo as it goes this one
I am already in a dispute with this company. I canceled my membership months ago and have not used this site since. Yet they charged my credit card for another year and refuse to refund it stating that they have a "no refund" policy. Why should I be forced to pay for something that I am not using? This is BAD BUSINESS. I am filing a dispute with my credit card company.
I've moved a few times for work and not knowing anyone in the cities I've moved to, this has been a helpful tool in meeting men. Sure, there are lots of things you can complain about - people who don't respond to a first message; people who don't bother to write much of a profile; sleazy people who may be fraudsters or scammers, etc. But if you're not in a rush to just meet whoever's profile pic might appeal and you take the time to ask some great questions, assess what people are looking for, and respect that people take the time to send a message, it's a good way to meet people.
I've dated men in every city I've lived in thanks to POF - and most of those relationships lasted a year or two. However, I didn't jump into bed with anyone nor did I jump into meeting men who I hadn't at least felt a spark in a few messages, then a phone call or two, then a meeting.
Beware the newly divorced or separated - sometimes they are in such a rush to put themselves out there that they haven't dealt with their "ex" issues. And avoid stories that just don't match or inconsistencies - those are red flags. But there are some great, sincere people - at least I've found it to be so. But if you're desperate to date and meet someone every weekend, that's not a recipe for success on POF. Patience, knowing what you want and waiting for it and having a positive attitude for what it is may offer some success (depending, of course, on what your idea of success is!)
Hey people ... it's what you make of it. I had no problems meeting nice men. It was fun and funny. If you go into it negative that's all your going to get. Be positive just remember sometimes you have to kiss alot of frogs to get your prince. POF treated me very polite and I would recommend them. Yes I did meet my fiance on this site. Thank you POF
Full of emotional guys not over their ex's. One guy I was seeing took me on holiday originally booked for him and his ex a week later he got back with her got with someone else he got me pregnant then went back to his ex then I met an alcoholic two ex alcoholics an ex heroin addict working and claiming benefits and an arrogant cry baby on benefits who is totally messed up! Don't bother it's a rat pit. I will NEVER use that site again!!!
Just treat this site for what it is -a joke
I would sum it up, very average women who are very picky
I did speak to a few but they had the personality of a snail and I only got one word answers, not very intelligent at all. Another one told me she had hundreds of messages and had been on loads of dates but no joy (the women must see it like a conveyor belt of men and they wont rest until they find their perfect man) so you already competing against thousands of men,
A lot of the women use text speak and swear in their profiles, not the type you really can see anything long term with. When you get a message back from someone who is 32 that's says "I am good wbu wuu2?" then you know its a sewer
It did make me smile, I was on it a few years ago 2012 and It didn't take me long to see old faces with the exact same pictures! I had to chuckle when one overweight woman who was 5'4 said in her headline Only guys 6'2 or over. The entitlement/pickiness is laughable and no way would they dare have the brass neck to act like such a diva off the computer when they would get ignored by 99.99 of the guys
Oh if you do join get ready for a ton of meet me from fake profiles who only want you to click on some dodgy adult site
to sum up
too many thick women, too many picky women, too many illiterate women, too many women with issues and too many women who are social misfits. Apart from that I higly recommend
I tried this site 3 times.All 3 times the site logged me off.When I tried to log in,it repeatedly said,my either my name or password was invalid,when I'm certain it was right.So,either the site has a bug or I wasn't a paying customer and it automatically shut me out.A total waste of time.I'm thoroughly disgusted,with this app.
People say 'You get what you pay for.' so I did not expect much using POF. After all it is a free site and my experiences tell me that most free sites are a waste of time. However, I highly recommend POF. Not bad for a free dating site and I am spoiled but absolutely fantastic dating sites like Mingle2day so it is not easy to impress me.
I just found out from my husband on sept 2nd that he has been talking with a girl on your pof site. They met 3 times in a parking lot. He got gonorrhea from her. Our marriage may not be strong enough to get past this but I wanted to let others know that there is a girl out there on your website spreading this. Her username starts or has Rebecca or becca in it. She is from Aurora, Co. and drives a older blazer or Ford Explorer. My husband deleted his acct and said they never swapped numbers. He could not remember her username unless he don't want to say. My husbands username is 1guy1978. I tryed reopening his acct or making another acct but no luck finding her to report it. I believe he was using a yahoo email. Just don't want this spreading!
I bought a month subscription, it automatically enrolls you in monthly auto pay. After a month I got an email stating that $19.99 was taken from my account, no problem right? Right away cancelled my auto-pay and called and asked for a refund as soon as the phone lines opened. Sarah in billing stated that there are only two physical people to talk to, and they are both in billing, so basically no customer service. I told her my situation and how I called and wrote two emails as soon as I saw the POF monthly charge, her response? Sorry, NO REFUNDS AT ALL. I stated that it was my fault but I called and emailed hours after the charge posted. Too bad, no refunds. I then asked to talk to her supervisor or somebody else, as previously written, no one else to talk to. And that was it, no refund, no one to ask about it. Sarah stated that I can email them but I would get the same NO REFUND response. I totally understand if I had asked for a refund a week or two into the cycle, but I emailed and called as soon as the charge was posted. This was a first for me. Sloppy business practice
