PoF got its start in 2003 and is now one of the world's largest free dating sites. 32,000,000 members call PoF home, earning it the title of #1 free dating site worldwide in 2011. With 2.4 billion page views every month, members are guaranteed to meet a variety of singles on the site actively looking for friendship, casual dating, and serious relationships.
Don’t let the nonexistent price tag fool you – PoF is a fully functional site with every feature you would expect from a dating site (plus a few fun bonuses). It starts out with basic profile information about you and what you’re looking for. Initial signup questions cover children, marital status, interests, smoking and drinking habits, religion, profession, income, family situation, relationship history, and more. Users then personalize their profiles with a headline, an essay description, and a list of interests. An optional essay on first dates is also available.
The most interesting part of the profile comes next:the Relationship Chemistry Predictor. PoF makes the matching process fun with several questionnaires designed to assess compatibility. The Relationship Chemistry Predictor poses 73 statements about you and your personality, to which you must indicate whether you “Disagree,” “Somewhat disagree,” “Somewhat agree,” or “Agree.” The test measures five broad dimensions of personality, then users your responses to match you with other members who have taken the test.
Users also have the option of taking the Relationship Needs Assessment, which determines your known and hidden needs in a relationship. When the assessment is completed, you are presented with an action plan of questions and topics to communicate effectively with your matches. Other questionnaires include “Is Your Love Interest A Keeper?,” a “Psychological Assessment,” and “The Sex Test.”
Other fun features on PoF include Goldfish credits, login points, virtual gifts, testimonials, and roses. Goldfish credits can be bought and used to purchase PoF gifts, more creative Ice Breakers, and the ability to view sent message status. Gifts purchased with Goldfish credits are public and appear on the recipient’s profile for 3 weeks. Login points are earned automatically each day you sign into your account and can also be used to purchase virtual gifts. Gifts bought with login points are private and appear only in email.
If you have been added to a user’s favorites list, you can leave a testimonial for him or her. You can edit or remove any testimonial you have written, and can remove any testimonial written about you. Upon joining PoF, each user receives two roses. After a rose is sent to another member, you must wait 30 days to receive a new one. Because they are in such short supply, sending or receiving a rose is a momentous occasion. Choose wisely!
Some features on PoF are available only to users of a certain gender. Men have access to a page called “Hottest Girls,” which creates a list of the most desirable women in your area who regularly respond to messages. Women receive access to a feature called “Most Attracted,” which formulates a list of male users who have the highest likelihood of being attracted to you. The rest of PoF’s range of features – like chat, forums, Meet Me, and mobile apps for iPhone, Android, and Windows 7 – are available to all members.
A free membership allows for full access to the site, including searching, testimonials, favorites, and communication with other members, but paying has its perks. Members who upgrade receive highlighted profiles in search results, access to the Ultra Match advanced “Behavioural Matchmaking System,” the ability to see if sent messages were read or deleted, profile themes, unlimited gifts, the ability to see who viewed your profile and when, and ad removal.
Whatever PoF is doing, they’re doing it right. Dating Sites Reviews users voted it their favorite free dating site from 2009 to 2013, and it’s been ranked #1 or #2 in the UK, Canada, and the United States.
found my best friend here
I found that if you read the profiles, you do get what your looking for.. Although, there are some great liars out there. I went through alot of ladies here, till i found the right one. She is honest, hard working, and beautiful. We've been together now 5 years, 2 of which are married.
Ease of Use
It is easy to use, but seriously folks, read the profiles. Get to know them before you venture out. I had 2 bad encounters that i remember.Yes, you do get alot of notifications and wink/flirts, not all generated by another dater.
if folks would read the profiles, it would be alot easier to navagate the mine fields of this site. I simply mean, for instance, just reading what is written would be alot more helpful than looking at pics. I put, first line, that i don't date outside my race, but was bogged down by requests from ladies of another race. I also asked that if you didn't have a profile pic not to contact me, but here again i was bogged down. That said, one has to wonder if people merely look at the pics and jump, rather than read and see if they actually have anything in common with the intended person of interest.
Plentyoffish.com..enter at your own risk!!!
I commented on Michangelo's (?) review of Plentyoffish.com so therefore, I decided to write my own seeing how I once was a member and made great friends. I am now dating a guy that I met on Plentyoffish.com and he is a nice guy. For me...I'm pretty picky!!!
I recommend Plentyoffish.com for a brief visit if you go into their chat rooms because if you stay too long in the chat rooms they get boring and out of control. The people tend to start cursing and talking about sex all the time and that gets sickening, the way they talk!!! The site instructs you to report a person if they are out of control ( my own words) but they don't do anything and I feel it is because they want the people to become paying members and if they do boot someone it may give them a bad name...yeah right.
Now for the site itself, it is good and there is wide option of people to meet. You have to be on your guard at all times though because there is a lot of players on the site that lie about everything. That isn't the sites fault!! They do offer free ways to communicate with someone you find interesting to a degree because as I said above they do want you to become a paying member.
Over all, if you are interested in trying the site I say go for it. To each his own!!
Nice website, worth a try.
This website has two different levels of membership. A free one that allows a member to send a "flirt" message to a member, whether they are a free member or have a paid membership. A paid membership allows someone to send an e-mail via the website's mail server to another member, regardless of whether or not the other person is a free or paid member.
Additionally, you can opt to have a free 30 day, money back trial period of the paid membership.
But, sometimes, i get profiles for the same women, despite having not contacted them in the past, and they don't meet my specific search requirements.
