Not a site I’d recommend to anyone.
Ok. So I’ve been out a couple of dates. Was threatened and now stalked as I said no, then pof allow the user to stay on the site after reporting
Money stolen from my account!
Pof just ripped my account for 51 dollars. This after I specifically turned off the auto renew settings in my profile. This site has become a joke! Tons of fake profiles and a total waste of time. And now $51 dollars out of my account because of stealing scumbags like this..
I found my soul mate.
I went and joined POF in January 2018, I started talking to a few guys. But only meet up with one after taking for 2 weeks. Meet in a public place etc etc. and we are now coming up to our 2 year anniversary in feb and we also have a baby. Yes I understand that there maybe some men/women who are fake and not in it for the same reasons. But there is a diamond in the rough once in a while. Just be honest and communicate what you want
A beasts wonderland
Too much cat & mouse behaviours,elusiveness,too much non committals,casuals make this non refundable site a brothel scene..some overly macho types using motorbikes to-" sell themselves & appear-" larger than life..Too many tasteless Sleazo' s..Money wasted on a tasteless TRAP
Some nice girls. But!!
I've tried this site for a while now and have chatted to and on occasion met some lovely girls.
There are so so many fake female profiles.
The About me descriptions - almost verbatim on some.
Meet me - from girls which can only be generated by the POF system.
Meet me - from USA, Russia, Asia - seriously!!
The absolute tossers (yes that's some of us fellas) who ask for bed activity, bed activity preferences nudes pics or send manhood pics ruin it for the genuine ones. No wonder most girls (the majority) won't even reply to even a polite message.
POF seem to sit by and not police all this, happy to take users money and turn a blind eye.
Won’t refund membership after being scammed
I was scammed what I believed to be a POF email for a free video call. Some of their members are malicious. POF or ITunes won’t issue a membership refund. I have no confidence in this site!
To all the ladies out there!
In the last two months, i have been lucky enough to go on four dates. Nothing past a first date but a good start. If you are lucky enough to strike a conversation, ask questions and suggest to meet in person within a week. If they hesitate, run for the hills. Put your sixth sense in to work. I am fortunate enough to have a special gift of putting two and two together. The few lies i uncovered with the men i met was their marital status and current professions. Two of the men stated on their profiles that they were single but actually separat...ed. Agrrrrh! You are technically married mate! I gave them the flick. Too much baggage. The other two claimed to have masters degrees working as accountants. Oh boy!. The profile of the one of the two academically accomplished candidates was laden with grammar and punctuation errors.
You just got to know how it "works"
The first time i joined pof 2 years ago. I had no idea how it all worked. I was lame and timid in my messaging. Got no replys. Just got contacted by fakes ect. They easy to spot though. Block them immediately. Had a break for 12 months then got back on with a different "attitude". Firstly my new username was VERY suggestive. But kinda funny. And the chicks that did like it were the sort i was after...an easy hook up. I have had upwards of 10 hook ups. None ugly fat chicks either. You just have to be very polite, a little funny, know your target...and more than anything be creative in your messages. I very rarely say "hi" in a message. Just hit em with something direct like..."i noticed your fantastic red shoes. You wear them very well". On profiles where chicks write nothing try something like..."Gee Sarah you really gave me heaps to work with there lol...you like to make it hard dont you?" Bam!! The site does work....but we have to make it work lol. Its not easy. And i never paid a cent.
Very limited unless you pay
There is a "Meet Me" but you can't see it unless you pay for a membership
Someone wants to meet you, you get a notification but you can't see it because you need to "Upgrade" in other words PAY
You can search a criteria, but you can't search a user name.
It's free to create a profile and browse other profiles, but there are limits.
Been on it for years and years, had no luck finding a partner.
Some of the profiles are FAKE, a photo that could not possibly belong to a 65 year old, or some are foreign fakes, use photos of people in other countri...
Not even 1 star
I've asked for my password to reset 11-15 times- no emails received- or in spam- My account has been compromised for the 2nd time- Im annoyed - that i will never be able to access my contacts or message history- As a paid member-again - This is totally unacceptable- again- This needs to be rectified asap- 37000 plus are having the same problem- Whats going on POF- Terrible service- even worse responding time- Last time it 4 days now I'm passed 5 days- so what is going on- POF Replied 5 days later- with a reimbursement- Guess i will never have contact now with the friends i made - Whatever you do don't use POF- appalling at least
Beware of scammers
Women really need to beware of the scammers on this site. False profiles who either want money or want to use your bank account to transfer money into. Unfortunately I was persuaded to communicate on what's app so abusive conversation was not recorded on POF so cannot block this user to protect myself. He is going under the profile name Snak3 (47) and claims to live in Buderim Qld using the name Martin Cross. They certainly come across as well educated but thankfully when stories started to sound suspicious I backed away. I am one of the lucky ones thankfully.
Disgusting site with owners of site playing Hypercritical Moral Police!
The site is full of non stop sleaze, inappropriate behaviour, photos and comments from woman, who are nasty, rude and aggressive, yet as soon as a Male mentions the word 'breasts' he is kicked off the site. Another company that thinks because they own this crappy site they can be Moral Police to Society. Your site is CRAP!!!! Go elsewhere people. Username was Triumph1100
Found the love of my life
Thanks to POV I attracted the love of my life and forever am I in appreciation for this dating site. Great dating site for those in search of true love. Love is allowing and love has no expectations.
Questions & Answers
What does it mean when other persons profile pic disappears off private messages and their profile but u can still read their profile and messages. On profile it states they have private pics and to see them send them a message? Does it mean they have blocked you or maybe hidden their profile??
Can't really say. Possibly they're either really good looking, and so get bombarded with hits OR (more likely) they're really horrible-looking and are just hoping for a catch. Also look out for fakes - the worst are from the USA - either their location will be either a U.S. town or something like 'City' and then the name of a capital city in Australia. Just delete them
How do you unmatch a member on POF without blocking them? Google says this is the only way, but I’ve been unmatched and not blocked by someone.
Just ignore or delete they will get the message don't read any other messages from them in case they are abusive
Someone blocked me, can they still view me?
