Why Hide your Online Status on Plenty of Fish Dating?

There are a variety of reasons people want to hide the online status on POF but the most common reason is when someone wants to scope out new members without having to communicate with anyone else during that time. For example maybe you starting talking with a lady or two (or three). You want to meet more new women but you don’t want to have to feel obligated to chat with the women you are currently talking to. Hiding your profile hides when and if you are online and thus maintains your privacy.
