    Online dating is very difficult. This site was easy to navigate and FREE. Dont believe in paying for a date, and find that the men are all about the same no matter what site you're on. Unfortunately I have given up on this, through no fault of the site, just a personal preference.

    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.

      I was in this app for 8 years, I met my ex here and we was together for 6 years, I came back to the app and after weeks of using it I noticed that I couldn't find anybody I like, found out I can only date guys around my age. I wrote them and they basically said that I have to date someone around my age and that's it... I hate that now I cant date who I want so now I'm using Meetme... I CAN CHOOSE WHO I WANT!!!!

      I have been a user of this site for the better part of a few yrs. Online dating is tricky. I have used 6 different sites. I have a few things on the ball, so I typically am fortunate to be able to get some traction, though I am selective. I just had my detailed account eliminated with no notice; no explanation; no recourse, nor right of Due Process. I don't know why. Tried to figure it out. It is possible my account was hacked--you will see that FREQUENTLY on this site. I did have one girl get mildly irked when I would not give my number out--she initially reached out to me. Maybe she reported me--but you think POF can see through this.

      I am contemplating re-signing up, but the quality on this site is FAR worse than 6 other dating sites or apps I have tried over time. I have also contemplated becoming a paid premium member--but for this lack of quality--and this unilateral elimination policy with no explanation or recourse (I have seen a LOT of complaints here & elsewhere on this!), I think I may stick to the other sites & hope to get off all of them once & for all. They also do NOT offer an affordable Short-term option, so you don't make a long-term commitment if the benefits are lame. Consider this site LAST, folks! The quality of participants overall is very poor--and the site features appear designed SOLELY for corporate income revenue, though most sites operate largely this way, of course.

      Original review: March 23, 2021

      Plenty of Fish is a free/subscriber online dating service. At best it has an unethical business model. At worst it is a site that has been allowed to violate an individual's right to due process. I was a member for a period of time beginning in February, 2021 until early March when my account was closed due to undisclosed "violations of their terms of use and/or Community Guidelines". I requested and received an unsatisfactory response from their customer service department. Simply, I was told, "We do not discuss reasons for account closures to protect the privacy of individuals."

      I asked again for a reason, citing the possibility of hacking, a client with misandry, someone who did not like that I did not respond to their advances. I pointed out that I made a conscious effort to respond kindly to those with whom I did not feel a connection. In addition, to respond to woman who lived in excess of an hour's drive. I was not afforded the opportunity to know what "violation" nor the opportunity to put forth an affirmative defense. They informed me that I had no recourse in the matter and they would not entertain any further questions in the matter. I was also told not to try to open another account under a different profile name because they would close it down immediately. It seems that POF is ripe for men and women who might wise to get even with members of the opposite gender. All one needs to do is to make a complaint against another subscriber and they are banned for life, without due process and possibly without just cause.

      I signed up for this service a couple of weeks ago first as an unpaid customer and then one day ago as a paid customer. Before I paid even though I consider myself just an average Joe I was immediately undulated by many women supposedly interested in knowing me but of course POF blocks the image until you're a paid customer. Just out of curiosity I decided to try it out officially and became a paid member. Strangely enough now all these hidden hidden women that were supposedly interested in me started to block me! Haha I did chat with a couple of interested women over the weekend they turned out to be simply online scammers I gave them my piece of mind for trying to rob me of my hard earned money before blocking them also.

      Wow to my surprise on the same day I became a paid member POF sends me an email accusing me of being an abusive member and if this occurs again they'll delete my profile! **? It appears to me POF is more in the scammer industry than the online dating scene and they're very supportive of these scumbags! All of these online dating sites are just platforms for scammers and customers will completely waste their time and money. If you think you're going to discover love there you'll be scammed twice both from the scammers and POF. Maybe they receive financial kickbacks from these guys. My best advice is to stay far away from POF or you'll have nothing but an miserable experience!

      I made an account in POF (plenty of fish) as a transgender woman. Yes my inbox got flooded for the 2 days I was in the site. Few of the guys wanting to hook up with me so bad that they would offer me money just to meet them up. I said no everytime because I did not wanna break any rules of the site. But for some reason I was still blocked and got my account deleted without telling me what I did wrong. I was only there for 2 days until I got banned. Like why am I the one who is banned when I'm the one being offered and yes I declined. Isn't that unfair for us transwomen? I do not understand why. Penalizing the victim much? So yeah when guys offer you money for sex, even if you decline, you will still be banned from the site.
