Honest Canadian site but dont expect to get a date unless you are Daniel Craig

published

50% of the female profiles are fake scams from central Europe or South America.
The attractive women know it and set their preferences for a man earning $150,000+ (good luck with that)
POF DO NOT Give refunds dont take out a 3 or 6 month membership.
With the premium membership you can see when the woman has read your message. One of the most heartbreaking moments is when you message a woman and it comes back UNREAD DELETED.
Suggest get a dog or join a dance class.

Some real people but lots of fakes

published

Just so many scammers and fakes and what I think are probably lonely kids who just fool around on this site. The good looking men and women are almost certainly fake profiles. Some are money scammers, some are just catfish, using the site for entertainment.

Not all men are bad

published

Met an amazing guy on here and we are still together.

I also met my ex online and he's nothing but a con artist and personally think that all women should be aware of people like this.
They will lie and leave you in financial hardship to get what they want. Becareful who sweeps you off your feet, if it's too good to be true then he probably is and there's a lot of them on POF.

Not free

published

Joining is free as are all off these single sites. When it actuall comes to meeting someone you have to pay. I have 10+ interested in me, i have to upgrade/join by payment. So nothing is free.

Some nice girls. But!!

published

I've tried this site for a while now and have chatted to and on occasion met some lovely girls.
But.
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.

I have had a great time on POF- met at least seven guys. The pool does dry up fast but hey I'm in my 50's and looking for a 50 year old guy (who doesnt smoke). It is what it is

Genuinely free a reasonably good site.

published

I've met some real people on this site. So while I'm still yet to find my ideal partner I have made some great friends.
I would say this and OkCupid the two best dating sites that I have found.
Both are genuinely free and have and real people.
Good luck and happy fishing.

pretty crap

published

the ONLY good thing i have to say is at least its free to send messages, other than that...complete garbage, fake profile views, fake mutual matches and fake messages on top of all the scammers...NEVER, EVER PAY TO UPGRADE, only use the standard free account because its all you need to reply to the rare genuine message you'll receive.

Free version of POF works just fine

published

The free version of POF is working just fine for me.
I've exchanged messages with plenty of genuine women, had coffee dates with quite a few and more than that with some.
Yes there is the occasional scammer but they are very obvious and there is a Report User function. It is easy to use and they get taken down immediately.
Basically it's just like meeting people the old-fashioned way only easier.

Poor Online Forum !!

published

Despite the odd occurrence of 1 or 2 people I know having a successful experience with online dating, it most definitely from my experience, is not the majority. What is more common is inactive members leaving their profile online, members having no interest in interacting beyond their device or phantom profiles wasting the time of every legitimate member who falls for them. Not impressed POF!

Looks like most women are actually escorts or looking for FWBs and offering services for money.

published

Been there for some time and as others mentioned, I'm too a reasonable looking man in early 40s but so far not a single positive outcome not even a date. Even I courted less attractive ladies with same outcome, either no response or rejection. So either these women are fake, have vision problems or are here for fun and wasting time. Or possibly gold-diggers which I wouldn't be surprised. I found actually several women here looking for ''relationship'' but on other sites looking for sugar daddies and offering escort services.
So guys save your time and hit the clubs instead of wasting your energy on online dating sites.

Not a bad site but problem with nude pics and fake profiles.

published

Site is not very practical but you get lots of free features like chat and email preferences. But be mindful from scammers posting as attractive women who want your email.
You get good choices of women but you'll find bad seeds here too who troll all dating sites in order to get their kicks out of insulting men who contact them or make a harmless joke. People are indeed losing it.

App is Crapp

published

This app is crapp! Lots of scammers & people that say they want to meet but never do.
I'd go as far as saying alot players & liars as well married men on here. I never met one person on here & I deleted the pof app! :)
PS Alot of them don't even have photos of themselves.

So many topless photos of men!

published

Continually come across topless & sometimes nude pictures of men even though there is a reporting system. Got many matches outside the radius I entered. Many men just straight up looking to grab a shag. Got more 'matches' when upgraded.? Scam for an advertised 'free' dating app!

Plenty of attempts to get you to renew...

published

I paid for a year, and fortunately made sure I unticked the auto-renew box..I received sporadic messages "Someone wants to meet you", sent emails and never got a response. Now that my paid membership is expired, I get these messages daily, but surprise, surprise, you can't contact that "person" without upgrading. Just another rip-off scam...

Account deactivated with no explanation

published

I have had my account deleted on many occasions. The only gripe is no reasoning or feedback is given and unable to contact the site fr any feedback. Just start to getting to know someone, then the account dissappears. Also of late i have received emails from ladies who straight up put there email and never respond on the site, or half naked woman who have easyminge.com at the bottom of their profile. Surely this is picked up when profiles are reviewed.

NETTY Dasked

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.
