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
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.

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?
