    Frustrating site because although it's free, when they email you a potential match's profile name, you need to upgrade your account to see that person's profile. So the only thing I can do is not respond to someone who thinks I am a good match, but wait until someone actually sends me a real message. A lot of guys don't do that. Also, I think the site has a lot of imposters on it. Or, there are many guys who think they are Shakespeare. (Or can't write or spell at all!!)

    POF is a good dating site. It is free to join and there are many members. I have talked to a lot of guys on the site. You are given a lot of info about members in their profiles and can post photos as well. They do a good job with safety and security too.

      This is one of the best free sites that I have seen. I did meet someone on there, and we dated for about 6 months, but it didn't work out. I have been on other dates from people I met on the site, but still haven't found the right person. I feel it is a very safe site, and easy to use. I would recommend it.

      I've used POF for a number of years and it's great that you get a lot of features for free but I've had my profile hacked and I get a lot of phony winks from phony ads. They claim to be my age, (late 50's) but look 20ish, they also have their cell phone text number superimposed over their photo and are never on the site for more than a week before they pull their ad.

      Although POF is free, I paid the extra money so I could see who read my emails, as well as other benefits. I paid for 6-months. I immediately began corresponding with several women. Then I wasn't able to sign on anymore. I sent several emails telling POF of my issue but I never got a response back. I then googled "POF Complaints" and realized my account got hacked. I again wrote POF telling them my account got hacked and I wanted a refund. POF sends me a complete refund.

      After trying this app by creating a profile, I realized it was not for me. I was getting daily matches that were not of interest to me. They continue to ignore my request to allow me to remove my profile.

      It's full of ridiculously picky unattractive women with incredible demands, offering nothing in return. They don't even fill in their profiles, they say nothing about themselves but only talk about the perfect man they want. Things are 100% opposite on Seek4Her.com and you know why? Because women outnumber men there, so the men aren't so desperate, as a result the women are more feminine, open and friendly. They take better care of themselves, looking perfectly groomed and pretty. They have simpler, unspoiled personalities and adequate undemanding attitude. You don't have to be knight in armour or Rockefeller to be popular there. But on Pof you have to be perfect, you have to put in every possible effort to gain their attention, but ask yourself a question, is it worth it? Don't lose your time and dignity, brothers!

      I met my husband on POF. I’ve always been off and on but have been permanently off the site since Nov 2019. I’ve met others on here that were just looking for a hookup but eventually I found my soulmate. Thank you POF.

      People listen up. Do not use POF.. Every time you create your profile they will keep deleting it for no reason... Bumble and Tinder is way better. Trust me.... I'm telling y'all now and I do repeat don't waste your time with POF. Your profiles will be deleted every time you create a new one.

      Unfortunately, the password reset on POF does not work, I have not had access in over a week and sent multiple emails to POF customer service with no reply. This experience has been very frustrating for me and I cannot even get in to close my account.

      POF.com author review by Mark Brooks

      POF.com, also know as Plenty of Fish, is the largest completely free online dating site.

      • No Charge: While there are upgrade options available to further enhance your experience, POF.com is the largest dating site that allows you to have a completely free dating experience.

      • Profiles may include several photos: Users can provide photos of themselves in various settings as well as both full-length photos and headshots to provide the most accurate information about themselves for potential matches.

      • Advanced behavioral search algorithm: Along with allowing members to perform basic or detailed searches, POF also reacts to the profiles you choose to click on. In future searches, it will then refine your results by bringing you results that match both what you are asking for and what you are looking at.

      • Anonymous email network: Users can email potential matches through POF.com's own messaging service, allowing them to keep their identities and contact info private until they are ready to share it.

      • Profiles are screened before being posted: POF.com staff screens profiles and photos before posting to ensure only appropriate information makes it onto the site.
