Waste of time - fake profiles
by Still in business on 2019/05/20 00:39
Signed up, within 10 minutes already had 5 messages from women! Thought this is great. Each one however was fake and simply gave a link to go sign up for paid for s** sites. Thought maybe this is just a bit of bad luck, so won’t having a look. Profile after profile has images trying to direct you to other sites. Clearly no moderation or checks on this app. Do not waste your time. Definitely do not give them money. All the real people have clearly long since left the site / app
spam/fake

Greed
by fire7372 on 2019/05/19 00:18
This app is no longer made for the purpose of bringing people together. It is simply made to make money for the creator. It is a distant remnant of the free dating app it used to be. Every aspect of the app has changed. The ‘meet me’ part of the app has become a paid privilege (though you can still see the profile picture of the person who wants to meet you if you look at notifications). This is a joke though as fake profiles have started appearing with no information on their profile, but provocative pictures....I say ‘fake’ as within 2mins of being on the app I got 2 ‘meet me’ notifications from two profiles with the same picture! These profiles target whoever just logged in as that is how meet me works and shortly after the fake profile disappear...I’m not entirely sure what they wish to achieve when they close their accounts within minutes. The people on ‘meet me’ are getting further and further away. No more people in my hometown...though if you happen to click yes for a cute girl 50 miles away them the next 50 people are from that town/city! They introduced VIP style profiles where you have a star against you profile. It allows you specially privileges such as viewing who has viewed you (which used to be free). When I see this star I tend to avoid looking at your profile! Recently it’s showing my best matches profiles below the main screen, which is fine...when it was only one person...now it is 3 people and their profile pictures are blurred out to encourage you to take stab in the dark and click a profile you wouldn’t normally click... this is because fewer and fewer people are actually signing onto this site. They are aware of the sleazy fake profiles on this site and even worse the real sleazy profiles. Before long they will have no choice but to make this app fully paid. That will be a desperate attempt to survive but will close this app as no one should pay for this trash!
Don’t bother
by dewaldlondon on 2019/05/18 16:35
I’ve been on POF before and it was great, but now it’s just rubbish. Only a few profiles per day to swipe through and keep on getting pointless notifications that I need to boost my profile and pay for it. If the free app was actually good and they didn’t charge a fortune for it, I might have considered it but there is no way I’m upgrading with them.

The update has made it worse
by kimbono5 on 2019/05/18 09:07
Have to continually switch my phone of to reset the app. Glitches so many times. Maybe this is a sign to stay single. Needs better filters as the amount of vile messages I get is unreal must block 20/30 ppl a day on it

by kagzy1 on 2019/05/16 15:32
Disappointed I wouldn’t buy membership again. The matches sent are very random in ages and live miles away. They need a section where you can put personal preferences of what your looking for and get matches sent to you that is appropriate. A chat room would also be good for general conversation

Pointless.
by ted1ba1r on 2019/05/13 21:25
Can do very little without paying and the price is not worth it. A lot of these dating apps are a joke. Spoke to a few women before and they told me they got a free upgrade because there is to many men!! That's well out of order that men are made to pay and women don't. Why should we pay for them as well? If they had to pay it would be cheaper us men to use!!

by tttulio on 2019/05/12 20:08
When I use filters POF disregards them and give me unwanted results. That makes the app useless. Imagine shopping for cars, you select Honda and the app changes it to all brands ‘to give you more choice’

by Colinhil on 2019/05/05 12:37
So been on the app a week or so now and 99.999% of accounts are fake. which has stopped me from subscribing. Not worth the time downloading.
Ruined the site,and it’s getting worse.
by Fat chance!!! on 2019/05/05 11:26
This used to be a great site,but they’ve made changes which are completely useless and they’re getting worse.Firstly,if you refine your search to hopefully meet someone local,it expands your search saying there isn’t anyone local.REALLY??? Secondly,the new VIP function sends you a profile everyday,wrong age range and great if you want to drive for 3 hours to meet your ‘date’.I’ll not be subscribing until they listen to the countless complaints and change it so you get what you pay for.Can’t see that happening tho,they don’t care!!!

Terrible App
by Manhattan235 on 2019/05/04 11:05
This app is absolutely shocking - the messaging system being one of the worst features (second only to the overwhelming number of bots and fake profiles. At least 20-30 messages a day of just “Hey there :)” followed by a link to escort sites. This could be easily avoided with modern techniques but the developers deliberately choose not to, probably because it drives more revenue than real users.) Trying to write a message either results in the keyboard constantly switching to capital letters mid-sentence, or the cursor repeatedly scrolling out of view. Also, the “last online” time in the inbox/sent items is incorrect until the app is restarted. Come on guys - you’re charging £20 a month for this, you could at least make sure the platform is solid.

Backwards and confusing
by Elliebibble on 2019/05/03 03:29
If a person has been (and usually always is) rude, unnecessarily explicit or just totally unpleasant towards you and you block them, why on earth would their profile show up in the lineup at the bottom and top of the app in the menus? You also can’t block someone before you send them a message or two first? Which I don’t understand at all. I’ve recognised plenty of unfavourable types that have harassed me elsewhere, whom I know to be inappropriate or not to my liking one bit, and can’t get rid of them to keep my use of the app simpler and stress-free. The keyboard also messes up too regularly when you’ve been using the app for a few minutes and every other letter just switches to caps. I’ve never known that on any other app, it only happens on this one. I keep seeing people that live the total opposite end of the country as “potential”, even though I haven’t set it for more than 15miles. The options/settings are practically hidden. They would rather fill the app with in-app purchase ads than keep it easy to use and safe for their users. I don’t get it. You’re censored in your bio and messages, but a LOT slip through the net and I’ve found many people send me totally unacceptable messages, and all the while I can’t even use the word “fecking”, or it says the message was sent, and hasn’t been at all.

Falling behind other apps..
by Becca.93 on 2019/05/01 20:11
What is it with the text/pop ups when your writing a message. Every word you write it brings a pop up box of some strange emoji/graphics (that are totally irrelevant) that blocks what you have written in the message box. There should be a feature to turn this off or even have it as an add on where you click a button to get the graphics. And another thing, please add an option to turn meet me notifications off! If I notifications for the app turned on I get endless amount of ‘meet me’ notifications. I only want to be notified if someone sends me a message (or favs me or something).

The update with the addition of the in-app chat is the ridiculously bad. There’s a delay and it put letters in uppercase when you don’t want them to be. It makes trying to have a conversation extremely difficult. There’s also no way I can see to report a problem. Pof also do nothing to prevent fake profiles or those who catfish. Reporting the profile does nothing.

by Grahamat on 2019/04/27 21:21
I’m sure that the concept is appealing to many people but, frankly, the number of fakes on the site is beyond belief. It wouldn’t be so bad if POF did anything about it but they don’t respond in any way to emails and obviously have no intention of supporting their members. Even the ones daft enough to actually pay to upgrade. I have been on POF for a while but there are far too many women with no intention of actually finding a guy and it mainly seems to be a dating site for hill walkers or just plain made up profiles. Don’t waste your time with it.

Fake profiles galore!!
by GeoNeo87 on 2019/04/27 14:17
This is the worst dating app for fake profiles by a mile. I cannot believe they haven’t put something in place during sign up to prevent this. It’s so simple. Bumble for example makes you take a picture of yourself in a certain, or doing a certain action, when you sign up, and you then have to be verified. It’s like these guys give a damn about this problem. All I ever get is messages from gorgeous looking women saying “Hey There :)” which turn out to be bots which are deleted 5 minutes later. I don’t get a single message otherwise. As soon as I log on, I get about 6 of these fake messages, despite not getting any when I’m offline. Pathetic. Sort it out POF, and stop letting these “people” making a mockery of your app!!

Well they should employ me
by Be3r on 2019/04/26 11:32
I seem to only match with every camera girl or escort going and not a single real woman . The other thing on here is the man or lady should be allowed to choose the age group by which she or he would like to be contacted to and not stuck to an age group by which this app thinks is appropriate. And sadly to this apps knowlege I don’t want to date a 49 year old lady unless I choose too and I would like to write to some one if they older than 18 unless they choose not to talk to me . And fake profiles matches on meet me just so you pay for the function only to find no one there that matches with you . Then girls on here won’t give you a chance so what’s the purpose I should be hired to fish the fakes out .

Unfair practice of banning. Chatted to a guy, went on a few dates (meanwhile I took profile offline as liked him). Turned out to be married and full of lies. Went to sign back in and I’m blocked. Can only imagine it was the ‘lovely’ gent I met. No way to challenge. Seems to be the latest thing to do to people.
Too expensive the fee

Need to give more offer on the membership
Rubbish

Constant likes / meet me from scammers all over the country/ world trying to direct you to port sites. The site ask for more money to be seen more. RIP OFF.
Has got worse not better
by Andie P on 2018/02/25 18:41
I have recently returned to POF having been off for a year or so. I thought apps were supposed to improve with updates not get worse. The most annoying thing is the “meet me” feature. It used to have the users town/city noted on the screen. So you could quickly see if someone was within a distance that suited you and along with their image you could make a quick decision to see if there is an initial mutual attraction. However, now I have no idea where anyone is. It’s too long winded to look at every profile. Surely the purpose of “meet me” is a quick fire thing. So now my inbox is invaded with lots of messages from mutual matches who live the other end of the country to me, which then leaves me either wasting time messaging these people saying we live too far apart or looking like a horrible person and ignoring them. It’s all so unnecessary, JUST PUT THE LOCATION BACK ON PLEASE! Finally in messages any new messages used to be highlighted and easy to spot, but that is no longer the case. PLUS another really annoying thing is whilst you’re reading/replying to someone if a new message comes in their little face shows in a circle above the message you’re writing. So it’s easy to get confused as to who you’re talking to. Whoever designed this clearly hasn’t used be app. Please make this app more user friendly again like it used to be.
Backwards and confusing
by Elliebibble on 2019/05/03 03:29
If a person has been (and usually always is) rude, unnecessarily explicit or just totally unpleasant towards you and you block them, why on earth would their profile show up in the lineup at the bottom and top of the app in the menus? You also can’t block someone before you send them a message or two first? Which I don’t understand at all. I’ve recognised plenty of unfavourable types that have harassed me elsewhere, whom I know to be inappropriate or not to my liking one bit, and can’t get rid of them to keep my use of the app simpler and stress-free. The keyboard also messes up too regularly when you’ve been using the app for a few minutes and every other letter just switches to caps. I’ve never known that on any other app, it only happens on this one. I keep seeing people that live the total opposite end of the country as “potential”, even though I haven’t set it for more than 15miles. The options/settings are practically hidden. They would rather fill the app with in-app purchase ads than keep it easy to use and safe for their users. I don’t get it. You’re censored in your bio and messages, but a LOT slip through the net and I’ve found many people send me totally unacceptable messages, and all the while I can’t even use the word “fecking”, or it says the message was sent, and hasn’t been at all.
Not worth your time!
by MichaelBainbridge on 2019/02/19 23:45
After using the free version for a week I decided to give the app a chance and pay for a subscription for a few months to see how it goes. The app has tried to be too much like Tinder. The only real popular way of finding other profiles to look at and to where you’ll receive most of your notifications is through the “Meet Me” feature which is basically swipe left or right if you find them attractive. It doesn’t match you into a conversation so there’s really no point in it as most people don’t take it seriously or follow up on their responses as you’ll have people answer that they want to meet you but not follow up with a message. By far the worst thing is the amount of spam/bot profiles purely for the intention of either “E-Whoring” (pretending to be a attractive female and sell nude photographs) or a genuine bot sending you links for adult websites. They all have the same cliche profile with a WhatsApp number or describing they only talk on Kik Messenger. Amongst outrageous profiles suggesting to meet for other things, but you get the idea. Won’t be good until they implicate some sort of verification process like Zoosk to verify profile photos to be genuine and make it harder to make a profile with some sort of other verification.
I have tried everything else other than to leave the app to protect my information etc etc
by Blairwitch68 on 2018/11/08 10:38
Profile and all details are available to anyone who has access to anything that I would prefer to be sorted as I have requested that you can get it sorted for the last time that I'm going to be trying it again after the payment of it being an upgraded account to come to the end and then I'll not be renewing it again for the reasons that I've stated to you more than once before and you still don't understand what exactly you are meant to do for your customer and your staff needs a lot more training to be honest about it and it's a safe place for whatever it professed is the aim of the site and service I am not receiving the customer service that I'm paying for you to monitor my personal account details etc etc so that I'm wanting to be resolved ASAP thanks for the information that is obviously not happening with my profile information etc so that you might have a chance to let me know when you have sorted the whole process out for sure xdebi
Search feature waste of time!
by Jonnycoop on 2018/09/24 14:00
What have you done to the search feature? Mile set to 100 and girls age between 21 - 39 and you’ve shown me about 20 girls, really?! Only 20 girls in a 100 mile radius?! Who ever is running the app needs to be sacked!!! How about you put it back how it was and let people decide the parameters. If I set it to 10 miles and girls aged between 30 - 40 and it only shows me a few results, guess what, I’ll change it myself, it’s that simple. I don’t think you have ever had the search feature working like it should. What is the point of giving people options only for you to decide for them???? Update: nothing has changed only now I can’t sign in at all, I’ve forgot my password and when using you recover password feature it says it has sent me a link to my email but nothing arrives. I’ve done this about 6 times now and each time I get “we have sent an email to you inbox” but nothing arrives! You guys running this app are 100% useless!!! Update 2: Still can not sign in. I use the reset password feature but receive no email to reset! Unbelievable just how useless you guys are!
Rubbish
by Shrek1974 on 2018/09/23 15:05
Well where do I start with this first off when you search for people there never seems to be anyone online it never saves your search details and changes them all the time and when you put 35 miles I’m in brings people up from miles away what’s the point of that needs sorting out. Meet me section why would you show people in there when on there profiles it clearly states there not a upgraded member so they can’t see you want to meet them so they shouldn’t be put in the meet me part. verification to slow down the scammers online with fake pictures and Profiles make each member verify themselves would be good. I can remember when everything on pof was free to see if they read your message the meet me section as well but as always these people get greedy then f—k the whole site up go back to the old days with the site I won’t be joking up again as it’s a complete joke when you message them they don’t even get back to you with answers stay away if your serious about meeting someone as you will only have a small chance unless you sign up for every extra they offer
Search is useless
by GatsoSml on 2019/04/01 22:11
Poor app. The search is useless as it overrides what you select and expands the search but gives unsuitable matches far too far away and of an unsuitable age range. I entered my criteria for a reason. I’m not interested in someone half or twice my own age 200 miles away! Otherwise it’s not a bad app for free but needs an incognito setting to allow you to look without showing as live online to stop those who don’t like that you haven’t immediately replied getting funny or those who you are chatting with think you are talking to loads of others when actually you may be just checking something on their own profile or clearing out messages you aren’t interested in. The “meet me” is pointless as most don’t have it and those that hit it have never read your profile. Room for improvement. Certainly not worth paying for but at least bit does let you message and do quite a lot for free so good on that score.
An upgrade is a must!
by Helen.se on 2019/04/21 00:05
POF app seems to be years behind other messaging apps. I like to send multiple messages to a person instead of writing one big one in a massive bubble. It’s just a preference of mine and I know people who like the same. Unfortunately every time I send a message, I’m taken back to a main mailbox and I have to open the chat again to send another message. Why oh why?? Also, the messages aren’t pushed automatically if I have a chat open. I will only get a little notification that a person sent me a message and it’ll only show if I click on that notification. Another issue is people’s ‘favourite’ meet me option! I never used it and, no matter how many meet me notifications I get, I never will. Why don’t you offer a choice of turning this option off and, as a price to pay, the profile will be excluded from viewing? Please, think about it!
Game not social meet
by Karmc99 on 2018/12/09 15:06
Like others before me, I have found that people treat this site as a game not a chance to find a potential friend and partner. The 'meet me' function is a one-way game where the players waste others people's time sending messages they don't mean. It's just like playing 'hot or not.' Most contacts do not read profiles, seem surprised when you are not their type. Support doesn't exist, no useful features like searching on interests, distances are all incorrect, and search returns are all inaccurate. The matches function returns all gender of one specific age. Some of the profile categories are pointless - sibling position (youngest/oldest), pets, drugs, etc yet education is vague until degree. There is no search on lifestyle such as bookish v sporty v travel so one could search on personality type. This might help with the suggested matches. Also introvert v extrovert would be helpful. Why do so many people want to walk on beaches?
Great intuitive application.....
by Frodo_84 on 2019/03/01 16:56
I love Plenty Of Fishes intuitive application and is much better than their website! I just need a potential date, to answer my messages! the only thing I do not like is their ‘Advanced Search’ section! okay you can see who is online first. But once you reach person No. 50 and exit that section to go back onto the main menu then go back into the ‘Advanced Search’ section. You have to go through the list again and sometimes their are new profiles which come up in the process of going through 50 odd profiles again which takes a good hour or more! Which is one of my pet hates when it comes to this app! otherwise it is a great app, keep up the great work Plenty Of Fish!
I thought this site was a dating site and not a chatting site
by Jackson/Sunny Girl on 2019/04/04 16:50
It funny how you come on to a datin site and all people what to do is chat rather than make a date, see if there is some sort of click and then take it from there, a chat on the phone to make sure you like the voice but to go backwards and forwards ping-pong text drives me absolutely crazy I cannot understand why people just don't meet and see how it goes and then slowly you can see if you're got that connection. I also cannot see the point of coming on a dating site with no photo and to start a conversation with just one word, hi or just hello how are you, why not read our profile and pick something out of a profile but makes it interesting to the both of you and you're trying to connect with, surely a proper conversation rather than a one word conversation is much better it also shows a bit of intelligence.
Second time I have set up a profile, second time it has deleted me!
by Ness20 on 2018/09/23 11:00
I really like the POF concept. I really love that you have to answer some personal questions and be clear about your intentions from the start. HOWEVER!!! I spent considerable time creating a profile - TWICE! First time I was able to use the app for about a month before it asked me to sign in and didn’t recognise my E-mail and password. (Before you ask - yes it was correct, but I still tried to reset it using the password link - no email ever arrived.) SECOND time was yesterday! Set up an account - try to get in it today and the exact same has happened! Even tried to log onto the website through safari and it still wouldn’t recognise that I had set up an account!!! Please please please would you sort this out - because I honestly do think this is the best dating site out there. Only if I could actually use it. 🤔
Anyone genuine..??!!
by Hoping for a miracle on 2017/11/23 06:00
Well,please please POF people can you do something with section ( Meet Me). Why would I want to meet someone from eg: Southampton/ Cardiff or even further when I live in the Midlands.!!! Also the Mobile Users. The distance below photo doesn't correspond with where the person lives. Please sort it out, it's embarrassing when someone ask to chat and you find out that they live the other side of the country..!! because the mobile section says 2 miles. Thank you Since I last wrote this you have changed the app again, even more difficult where you don’t show where the person is from!!! Why??? You definitely are making the app less available to those who not paying a fee, until one day you are like the others:-( Thank you
Used to be good
by slayqeen on 2019/02/15 10:25
This app was good back in the day I used it I got two serious relationship. Since I rejoin in December it’s deleted my account three times I had to sign up again . When i tried to login it does not recognise my email I even click forget password I don’t get the email to reset . This is the most annoying thing is that I only get to use the account for 2 days then I can’t get back into my account .the thing is you can’t contact the people at POF at all as I'm was worried about my pictures just being there when I can’t login it’s the app as be come ridiculously now . I made another account for the fourth time after 2 days of using it my account is deleted again I just don’t understand it need to improve massively. It’s very disappointing as this is the only dating app I have used for the last 5 years with no problem.?
Avoid it
by M_Anthony_br on 2018/12/15 11:32
The app is clunky and buggy with random crashes. You always appear online unless you log out completely so just closing the app work change your online status. POF will ban you for no apparent reason. The app seems to attract women who are impatient and/or jaded and rather than just ignoring your message they will block you which will result in your email/profile being banned for life from the app/website. This attitude towards blocking users is part of the POF culture so don't be surprised! The messenger isn't an instant messenger which is completely ridiculous in nearly 2019! The messenger is so archaic and reloads the page after every message you send and returns you the message list which means having a conversation with flow is extremely difficult. The class of women is low with many women expressing racist preferences.
Needs much better developers !
by Nuneaton reviewer on 2018/09/18 16:47
The Meet Me function presents profiles of people over 100 miles away. I live slap bang in the middle of the Midlands, equidistant from Birmingham, Coventry, and Leicester, but have been been presented with profiles as far away as Bedford, Cambridge, Gloucester, and Manchester ! The age range on the search functionality doesn’t work properly. I’ve tested this thoroughly and no matter what age range or distance I specify it returns profiles that differ from this considerably. For example, I set a distance of 25 miles from my postcode in the Midlands and it returns profiles from over 100 miles away ! Often hangs or reports an error, particularly on 3G, let alone 4G ! The App Support button on in the AppStore app just takes you to a load of frequently asked questions pages ! I’ve not been able to find a way to actually contact PoF !
Falling behind other apps now
by Amlister on 2018/06/04 22:33
Quite sad that POF developers aren’t interested in helping people or making this the best app. The reporting system is still limited, fake profiles still a huge problem for genuine people still. The meet me and matches page still don’t bring up those within your filter parameters. The catch of the day in a yellow border come up every 3/4 swipes which becomes annoying. Would be nice to develop a bumped into notification/marker/flag? Would be nice to develop a page for those that are free to meet page so for those that don’t have a lot of free time because of work and kids can set up times/ possible locations/ activities so people can have the opportunity to meet more?!!! Also the deleting of accounts with no helpline, no reason, no notification, no opportunity to sort anything just because someone reports you and wants you off is really tiring now POF, definitely better apps coming forward and your behind the times. Annoyed and frustrating as it’s getting worse, for those genuine it’s not working....it’s been a week I can’t get on. I’m above board, not rude, genuine pics, looking for long term and think it’s time POF gets smarter and bring yourself more competitive again...
Full of scammers & false profiles
by stevewmunro on 2017/09/24 06:21
Just horrible! I have very little experience of dating websites but if this is truly representative then I will have nothing to do with any of them. The site is absolutely saturated with fake profiles to the point that if you get a message saying someone wants to meet/has sent a message your initial response will get to be - another scam! The site do remove profiles very quickly (quite often by the time you look at who has 'liked' you their profile has already been deleted) but I can only imagine their disinterest in proactively stopping these profiles lies in the pride they take in their headline number of 'members' Lastly they automatically enrol you for automatic renewal so when my initial block finished I went to the site to ensure I wouldn't waste my money again and found a link which said go to iTunes to TURN ON automatic renewal (which would suggest that it's not currently!) so I assumed it was fine and yet got a message saying that they had resigned me, took my money and, despite my vociferous protests, refuse to refund me. I know it's hard but save your money, this is ruthless uber capitalism exploiting people's insecurities for money - it's everything that's wrong with modern society
So far-so not good
by Hypnotic_ on 2018/07/31 05:42
When someone blocks you-you should be notified. When you block someone you should be given the option of keeping your chat history in case you ever wanted to unblock them and patch things up. You can’t pick up where you left off and you’re left having to search for them again. I use the refine button to limit the amount of results that come up but I keep getting lots of profiles not suited to me at all. If I choose a certain race or religion for example-I get lots of profiles with any race and religion when I have quite clearly specified what I’d like to show up. I think there should be a nudge button where if someone hasn’t messaged you for a few days-and vice versa, you’ll be nudged and prompted to message them unless you have lost interest. People creating accounts with no display pic or a pic of a quote etc which isn’t actually them should be banned. It’s dangerous enough with online dating without people then creating a profile where their pic can’t be seen. Or the ones who won’t show their pic if they’re not interested. Online dating is daunting enough without people playing games and hiding their pic.
Awful
by Gsampsonfanzx on 2019/03/09 07:35
Pof has been down for the past 2 months. With the website deleting your account, even if you’ve made purchases in the accounts. Then it takes weeks to get a new account made as the page doesn’t load. Pof needs to sort this out. Once the page was up and running before all the faults it was fine, I met many people from the site, even had a relationship. People have met from the site and have got married and had children. The site let’s you see who has viewed you, you don’t have to talk to people you don’t like as you can block them. But Pof should only let pictures of the person on the account, I’ve had many unwanted pictures sent to me. Once the site is fixed it might be better. For the time being don’t download it, as you won’t be able to.
Curious
by gin sling and tonic on 2019/01/08 16:36
There have been several men who complain that I’ve been online and not responded to a message they sent me. I’ve been quite shocked by their attitude, calling me very rude and ill mannered. On each of those occasions I have simply either been too busy to respond immediately, or online but working, not necessarily monitoring the site. One ‘gentleman’ recently only gave me 1-2 minutes between sending more and more irate comments. At the time I was short of time, rushing to work and really upset, when I finally managed to check the site, to read his nasty posts. Is it possible to warn people that, we cannot always respond immediately and don’t appreciate being reprimanded, when it’s unfair?
Has a mind of it’s own
by doddlechops on 2018/08/05 22:25
Since the new update it doesn’t retain my search parameters. It changes them all by itself constantly. I could vaguely understand it doing it after closing the app and re opening it. But I can go to search, change the parameters and immediately it just searches with whatever parameters it likes....sort it out, it’s getting right on my nerves! Since I last wrote my review, I have discovered that on the search feature it doesn’t bring up every profile either. I select by last visit and nobody comes up as ‘online now’. The people that do appear that are in my area are about the same 5 people. What is going on? How am I supposed to get the most out of this app? It barely functions!
It’s ok
by GoopyGOk on 2018/10/12 18:13
I have met a few people off here so it is good in that sense as that’s the reason you go on! But the app is so slow and intermittent as to when it works sometimes when I’m typing a message I can’t even see what I’m writing because it’s stops showing up also tells me I have no internet connection when I do and I know it’s not my speed that’s a problem because everything else works. Also one major thing is the fake profiles surely there’s something more POF can do to verify accounts more sufficiently. All in all I’d say the app is worth using you can always exchange numbers with people to avoid the app issues just make sure there not fakes first!
Better than tinder by far
by justspreadingthelove on 2018/04/02 10:24
It's a dating app it's not going to be easy youl have to endure some weirdos meet some clowns but all in all is a good laugh iv met some real nice people off here and even had a few long relationships but best of all for any man is Iv had so much fanny off of here it is unreal and is easily the best date app about with the best results,the only one thing the should do is limit the amount of filtered pictures women can have you should atleast have two unfiltered pics so us men don't waste our time meeting fat window lickers who look great in a picture that's filter
More like Plenty of bugs & perverts
by Viky7258 on 2018/09/21 23:33
For those genuinely trying to find love, a partner, even a friend beware of perverts a plenty on here. The amount of user names men have to describe their no doubt flaccid member is insane, even the likes of “exxtra_long” as a name is eye rollingly bad... and then you’ll also find the “I’m 21 but I put I’m 42 as I want to meet older women” little boys on there too. Technology side of things is terrible, the app keeps freezing or lags like hell. Even as a paying member you can’t avoid this, it’s really bad and the interface just went from a nice dark background to the shade of Ross’ teeth in Friends when he bleached them.... both will blind you silly, what jerk made that interface change?! I won’t be renewing my subscription later on, as a freebie it’s fine but sod finding Mr Right thru this mess.
Plenty of Fakes
by iNBig on 2017/10/02 23:01
I had the pleasure of finding my previous girlfriend on this app and shared many happy memories. But since going back on the app I noticed the app is increasingly becoming plagued with a ridiculous amount of fake profiles. As soon as I would log in for 2 seconds to see any notifications I would be spammed with over 10 notifications about someone wanting to meet then to discover they're just spam accounts and it is beyond annoying. The meet me feature is so pointless because you can see who liked you in the notifications tab, and if they don't appeal to you, you won't like them back or interact with them, so really it's a pointless feature 😄. This app used to be alright but now it lacks quality in features and has led to disengagement.
Terrible App
by Manhattan235 on 2019/05/04 11:05
This app is absolutely shocking - the messaging system being one of the worst features (second only to the overwhelming number of bots and fake profiles. At least 20-30 messages a day of just “Hey there :)” followed by a link to escort sites. This could be easily avoided with modern techniques but the developers deliberately choose not to, probably because it drives more revenue than real users.) Trying to write a message either results in the keyboard constantly switching to capital letters mid-sentence, or the cursor repeatedly scrolling out of view. Also, the “last online” time in the inbox/sent items is incorrect until the app is restarted. Come on guys - you’re charging £20 a month for this, you could at least make sure the platform is solid.
Falling behind other apps..
by Becca.93 on 2019/05/01 20:11
What is it with the text/pop ups when your writing a message. Every word you write it brings a pop up box of some strange emoji/graphics (that are totally irrelevant) that blocks what you have written in the message box. There should be a feature to turn this off or even have it as an add on where you click a button to get the graphics. And another thing, please add an option to turn meet me notifications off! If I notifications for the app turned on I get endless amount of ‘meet me’ notifications. I only want to be notified if someone sends me a message (or favs me or something).
Why
by Buttons 1990 on 2018/01/13 07:50
If you don't like it don't use it. Everyone is entitled to use it how they like. If you don't like an individual, POF have made it very easy, you report said individual. Also just before all the negs rise up with there pitch forks, if you can't have a laugh, be a bit immature from time to time etc. Why the hell are you on a dating app!? If you can't laugh while getting to know someone, how do you ever expect to enjoy yourself if it turned into something more long term?! Anyway kids, my rant is over. Enjoy and happy new year to the lot of ya! 😜
Used to be ok. Waste of time now.
by Johnnylambretta on 2017/12/29 21:02
A lot of fake profiles, single muma ego boost club types and far too many filtered pig ears and nose pics too, POF should ban this kind of pic. Been on most of 2017 and managed to get two dates. Out of almost 1000 messages, had less than 30 replies, most of which were almost identical which makes me think they’re automated. When I did receive mail from a profile, it always said “Hey there”. When I replied, I either got nothing back or what again seemed like an automated message. If you’re the sensitive type (I’m far from it) this probably isn’t the place to find romance. You’ll be better off meeting someone in the real world, maybe take up some activities. I’d say it’s about 70-80% male members. Internet dating has had its day...
Like shooting fish in a barrel
by Llando griffin on 2017/12/01 12:38
Pof is a fantastic way to look at all the women in your area that just aren’t interested in you. I love the “judge by the pictures, then send a message if you think they’re attractive enough” mentality behind it. Sending lots of messages to people only to be either ignored or given a rude comeback is also a massive plus. In all I would recommend pof to someone who has spent the last year or so looking for love in their bin or the local bus stop. As, they’ll have just as much success with pof, but won’t catch a cold while doing it. I especially like the “upgraded” part of the app too... “you’re a minger and you’re never gonna pull, pay us some money and we’ll make sure that more people turn you down or ignore you’re messages” I think I’m future I’ll look for the love of my life in more likely areas, like the bottom of a crisp packet or in the hole in my sock. Thanks for all the hard work you put in to taking my money pof, and thanks for the many wasted hours contemplating why I’m such an undesirable piece of scum that wouldn’t be touched by the lowest humanity has to offer with a ten foot barge pole.
Decent but flawed still
by TdRitchens on 2018/04/10 11:36
Updates fix nothing. After i send a message i have random letters and numbers appear on the end of the message? Some users are “premium” so even if you match you cant message them. Even tho the note on the screen says you can “message a match” it wont let me message them because “this user only accepts message from matches” even tho i matched them??! Location filter isnt accurate. We checked this between a group of us and it said we were all diffrent distances away from each other? Benifits to i tho are the ability to message MOST people and if they reply its another positive 😂
Pof review
by 123987derek on 2018/06/06 21:25
Yeah nah was going to give it one star but it’s not the apps fault that everyone has a massive ego and won’t reply to messages. A lot of bots come up but they are easily spotted. I feel some sort of reward system would work well. The more active you are and more info you fill out, the more you stand out maybe? I’m fed up of blank profiles with no information filled out and they only way to get to know someone is with one word replies. Room for improvement but overall it’s one of the better of a bad bunch.
Not a bad site or app
by madmaxbitesyou on 2018/01/15 04:12
Not a bad site or app to be honest. However seems rather pointless having people communicating from the other end of the country unless you want long distance relationship. Also you can type a long introductory message press send and be told that recipient only accept messages from paying upgraded members. Also being a straight guy I find it off putting when searching females to find transgender women. Especially when I've examined their profiles totally unaware of what they encompass. So, there is a place somewhere from trans people to date, I just don't want to look at their profiles.
Sort the search filter results out

Easy to use but the Search functionality is very frustrating. It allows you to put in certain things like distance from you, preferred height range etc. But then brings back a load of results outside of your search criteria; too short, too far away. This is the only aspect that had frustrated me though. It does what it says on the tin and the quality of other people on there has nothing to do with the app. - that's just pot luck. There would appear to be quite a lot of time wasters on here and seemingly a lot of accounts that are no longer active. Maybe good to purge after xx days of not using / going on line? Just a thought! Also brings up ladies when using meet me randomly!!!
Don’t bother

What an appalling site. It’s been taken over by fake accounts and bots. Here’s a list of problems with it 1. When you log on, the fake/bot accounts can tell and suddenly you have half a dozen “meet me” requests from fake accounts 2. You do a search and it decides (it even tells you) “actually, we’ve ignored that and expanded the area and age range so it looks like you have more applicable matches” so instead of seeing between ages 30 and 40 in my area, I am suddenly looking at 46 year olds 200 miles away?! 3. Subscription is expensive and it doesn’t actually give you much more. The “extended profile” you can read is essentially 4 extra bits of info, 1 of which is saying how many kids her parents had and whether she/he is oldest, youngest or middle child 4. Fake accounts outnumber real accounts 5. To report a fake account isn’t easy, you end up having to justify why you think they should be deleted That’s just the immediate obvious problems, but believe me, there are a LOT more. Used to be a good site but seems to have been given up on by the developers.

Better than some similar apps but lack of functionality on the non-pay version means it is less useful. In particular still a lot of time wasted because you can’t specify a maximum distance you want your prospect pool from. I live relatively near london but not looking from someone from over 60/70 km so immediately I get a lot of people who don’t meet my criteria. I want to have properly qualified prospects - so my time isn’t wasted! Also bit of a complex interface; I still don’t think I understand all the app elements - but nothing I can see can give me a quick run through. With so many apps, each one has to be immediately self evident and give me what I want! 😊😎
Seems like made only by junior developers
by Carla_Costa on 2018/08/12 19:27
I don’t even know where to start... The app has sooo many useless features competing with each other for attention that is overwhelming!! Is the worst experience I have ever seen in a dating app. *You can’t choose people nearby unless you go on the option “nearby”, where it should be in general. *Every-time you sent a message, you need to go back all over again to the chat screen and the app automatically send you back to your list, making impossible for anyone to have a proper convo. *The chat interface gives you an input that you click thinking is to write the message as it is at the bottom of the chat screen, but NOOOO, is for you to upgrade the app, so you than realise it is to purposely confuse the user and make a purchase. So misleading! * near me, will responde (the most non-sense feature), meet me... all so confusing and useless, does this company invest in the user experience at all? If they do, fire the team, because they clearly can’t do their job! The app has potential but all wasted in the hands of terrible decisions makers.
Welcome to the pay wall
by Zombiesdgm on 2019/02/12 22:11
Let’s start with the positive things about the app… nope I’ve got nothing Now the negatives Too open to spam, yes it’s free but come on. Same spam profile wanting to meet several times a day with a different profile name Search feature, just remove it. Pointless putting in anything as they change the settings back to 100miles Meet me, sure i want to meet people from any area other than around me Nearby feature, again just remove it. Shows people near by and then you view their profile and they’re from several miles away More prospect, as above. Bit pointless when it’s people who aren’t in the area And finally. What’s the point in asking people to set their preferences/ what they’re looking for? All of these features seemed to work well a few years back, even the search feature allowed you to search by name. Brilliant when you saw a profile but didn’t have the time to message them and wanted to go back at a later date. I can’t say for certain but I’m pretty sure all these features work if you pay the monthly fee.
Well they should employ me
by Be3r on 2019/04/26 11:32
I seem to only match with every camera girl or escort going and not a single real woman . The other thing on here is the man or lady should be allowed to choose the age group by which she or he would like to be contacted to and not stuck to an age group by which this app thinks is appropriate. And sadly to this apps knowlege I don’t want to date a 49 year old lady unless I choose too and I would like to write to some one if they older than 18 unless they choose not to talk to me . And fake profiles matches on meet me just so you pay for the function only to find no one there that matches with you . Then girls on here won’t give you a chance so what’s the purpose I should be hired to fish the fakes out .
It’s ok. Kind of worried that I might have wasted my money
by Dalee451 on 2018/03/30 04:47
I’m not silly. I know how these dating apps work with all of their fake accounts to hook you in thinking you’ve got some easy matches. The problem is it’s really quite bad on here. Lots of adversity if for websites and call girls. I kind of wanted to meet real people. I would have thought that they would have spent a bit more time administrating thake accounts and keeping the site clean. I kind of feel like there are probably better apps out there, but I’ve paid for 3 months now so I’m going to have to wait it out and see what happens now I guess. Oh well...
Used to be the best now try the rest!
by Floyd462663626275 on 2018/08/03 09:21
This dating app is all about profit now, ok you will get views, meet me’s and messages for the first three days (the taster) but after that if you still haven’t met anyone you now seem to be hidden, I have noticed this after five / six times now of deleting my account and starting afresh (they are also getting onto this as last time I had to also delete the app because they set the app to removed profile so I could not set up a new profile). They have also added tokens as well as a subscription so even if you buy a subscription you still don’t have access to all features. Try another app instead as Pof plenty of fish is now plenty of greed!
My POF experience
by ifonlythisappworked on 2019/03/01 09:22
I can only speak for myself and the vibes I have encountered on POF that thankfully been positive. I have met some people from this site which has led to having long term friendships. So I would say that it’s a good site based on how I’ve presented myself and my description. Some People do read and that surely saves a lot of time and pre answered questions. On that note I’d like to say a Big Thanks to POF for giving me to the opportunity to communicate with others and make new friends.
Fake accounts
by armour man on 2019/02/08 12:06
Now I’m neglected to do this but after spending money on the app to upgrade, to save time wasting with everyone. Heres the sad reasons why I hate going on POF, As soon as I open the app I’m bombarded with several fake accounts asking to meet me? But what makes me laugh is the amount of accounts that do this all ask for or are the listed below; Fake Nudity Scams And just people asking you to join their web pages or cam chats! Or even asking you join other web programs where this sort of content is acceptable! If anything POF obviously do not monitor their site. Cause if they did I’d be able to focus on finding my true match and not spending all my time on POF report the several accounts every time I go on the app! I hope the people read this and Please fix This is why you got one star of me, and don’t give people any old rubbish just to keep them sweet I’ve been in POF for over a year now and the fake accounts numbers have multiplied rapidly ever since. Witch dose tell me your not monitoring the site anymore am I right?? Get in touch soon POF
PoF
by Splinter5043 on 2018/02/19 00:22
Whilst the initial concept of this Site is a wondrous idea... there are unfortunately those (male and from varied feedback, females too) who sadly completely try to take advantage of those who are genuinely on this Site. Incorrect information, much younger photos, even in my experience ...the pictures were of his more handsome brother!! However, lve been invited to two marriages of two friends who have met their now husbands on here, as well as four couples who have met each other on this Site, so fingers crossed if l don’t met Mr Right elsewhere...hopefully l will on here! 😊
Best dating app.
by Kneeeecapper on 2018/01/11 13:00
This app lets you write about yourself, rather than just a photo, age & location to be swiped left or right. Although it does have that feature, it doesn’t need to be used. You can easily spot boring women who say their hobbies including “nights out, but also nights in”... brilliant, I know. 😂 I’ve had two year-long relationships from this app in the past. I’m single again now and I’m happy to try the app again. I’d be happy to pay for the premium service, but not at its current price. Also, my landlord’s Broadband has a censor on it, so I have to access this via the cellular network. Apparently Sky Broadband Shield thinks this should be blocked until 9pm because it’s for adults. I think you should also allow people to get or give honest, anonymous feedback on profiles on request. So many people have awful profiles and they blame the app or other users. 😂
Go back to the way you was
by Smoothjt71 on 2018/08/07 17:34
Used to be really good, but not as free as it was, don’t like the fact you can’t search for who likes you, just starting to get greedy and forcing people to start paying for services that used to be free, P O F has built a good reputation for being totally free, but is a shame that it’s starting to go down the money making path, I personally won’t pay for any dating services, take away the path that forces you to pay for services and just build on premium accounts and make em better, don’t begin to restrict services that used to be free, people see greed a million miles away these days and could have the potential to damage everything you have built
World of fakes
by Aircooled75 on 2018/04/29 07:13
Well the pains of online dating (and I use that word loosely) driven by a needy bunch of the weird , strangely silent,rude and not ready for a cup of tea let alone dating . Ladies you will get photos sent to you of men’s working areas that I can guarantee. Gents if you think she is out your range trust me you will be right , mind you it seems even if she isn’t you will be also be right. To many people talking to much fresh meat to keep conversations lasting and interesting.... so if you fancy having what dignity you have left ripped from you in a way that only North Korea could do,then my advice is to crack on and sign up to a world of pain miserable eye stinging months of sending messages . To the mad world of idiots .

Hi POF I deleted my account when I met someone on pof but we broke up after some time, then when I went to create a new account within 24 hours it was deleted, I then went to make another account and within 24 hours it was deleted, what you’ll find is once you delete your original account you cannot go back, shame it’s a great app and theirs lots of people looking for love, I’ve contacted support multiple times but all you get back is the generic “we’ve received your e-mail someone will be in touch” only find you’ll never get responded to and when you try to send another e-mail it will just auto-decline because they’ve blocked you.

Waste of time - fake profiles
by Still in business on 2019/05/20 00:39
Signed up, within 10 minutes already had 5 messages from women! Thought this is great. Each one however was fake and simply gave a link to go sign up for paid for s** sites. Thought maybe this is just a bit of bad luck, so won’t having a look. Profile after profile has images trying to direct you to other sites. Clearly no moderation or checks on this app. Do not waste your time. Definitely do not give them money. All the real people have clearly long since left the site / app

Greed
by fire7372 on 2019/05/19 00:18
This app is no longer made for the purpose of bringing people together. It is simply made to make money for the creator. It is a distant remnant of the free dating app it used to be. Every aspect of the app has changed. The ‘meet me’ part of the app has become a paid privilege (though you can still see the profile picture of the person who wants to meet you if you look at notifications). This is a joke though as fake profiles have started appearing with no information on their profile, but provocative pictures....I say ‘fake’ as within 2mins of being on the app I got 2 ‘meet me’ notifications from two profiles with the same picture! These profiles target whoever just logged in as that is how meet me works and shortly after the fake profile disappear...I’m not entirely sure what they wish to achieve when they close their accounts within minutes. The people on ‘meet me’ are getting further and further away. No more people in my hometown...though if you happen to click yes for a cute girl 50 miles away them the next 50 people are from that town/city! They introduced VIP style profiles where you have a star against you profile. It allows you specially privileges such as viewing who has viewed you (which used to be free). When I see this star I tend to avoid looking at your profile! Recently it’s showing my best matches profiles below the main screen, which is fine...when it was only one person...now it is 3 people and their profile pictures are blurred out to encourage you to take stab in the dark and click a profile you wouldn’t normally click... this is because fewer and fewer people are actually signing onto this site. They are aware of the sleazy fake profiles on this site and even worse the real sleazy profiles. Before long they will have no choice but to make this app fully paid. That will be a desperate attempt to survive but will close this app as no one should pay for this trash!
Don’t bother
by dewaldlondon on 2019/05/18 16:35
I’ve been on POF before and it was great, but now it’s just rubbish. Only a few profiles per day to swipe through and keep on getting pointless notifications that I need to boost my profile and pay for it. If the free app was actually good and they didn’t charge a fortune for it, I might have considered it but there is no way I’m upgrading with them.

by kagzy1 on 2019/05/16 15:32
Disappointed I wouldn’t buy membership again. The matches sent are very random in ages and live miles away. They need a section where you can put personal preferences of what your looking for and get matches sent to you that is appropriate. A chat room would also be good for general conversation

Can do very little without paying and the price is not worth it. A lot of these dating apps are a joke. Spoke to a few women before and they told me they got a free upgrade because there is to many men!! That's well out of order that men are made to pay and women don't. Why should we pay for them as well? If they had to pay it would be cheaper us men to use!!

Ruined the site,and it’s getting worse.
by Fat chance!!! on 2019/05/05 11:26
This used to be a great site,but they’ve made changes which are completely useless and they’re getting worse.Firstly,if you refine your search to hopefully meet someone local,it expands your search saying there isn’t anyone local.REALLY??? Secondly,the new VIP function sends you a profile everyday,wrong age range and great if you want to drive for 3 hours to meet your ‘date’.I’ll not be subscribing until they listen to the countless complaints and change it so you get what you pay for.Can’t see that happening tho,they don’t care!!!

Too many fake profiles
Terrible App
by Manhattan235 on 2019/05/04 11:05
This app is absolutely shocking - the messaging system being one of the worst features (second only to the overwhelming number of bots and fake profiles. At least 20-30 messages a day of just “Hey there :)” followed by a link to escort sites. This could be easily avoided with modern techniques but the developers deliberately choose not to, probably because it drives more revenue than real users.) Trying to write a message either results in the keyboard constantly switching to capital letters mid-sentence, or the cursor repeatedly scrolling out of view. Also, the “last online” time in the inbox/sent items is incorrect until the app is restarted. Come on guys - you’re charging £20 a month for this, you could at least make sure the platform is solid.

You let all the prostitutes and fake profiles run rife 95 % of all messages I get are fake profiles so annoying you don’t do enough to stop this
They use your camera and spy on you!
by alguienfuetimafo on 2019/05/04 05:51
Be aware and take care. I had loads of girls getting in touch just to keep the app open. Since I realised and covered my camera they stopped annoying me. And suddenly no track of all those fake messages and photos not even in history!!!
Total rubbish
by garethmw77 on 2019/05/03 19:51
This app never works on any iPhone I’ve owned. You can download the app, open an account, but the you can’t send messages, you can’t get a search done. I’ve tried well over 30 times. I give up
What’s the point?
by lhudex on 2019/05/03 19:51
Why ask what age, distance etc you’re looking for and the app completely ignores it?
Profiles come and go

The app is good the women are just hard to pin down as most are fakes You might get lucky then again you might not
Awful app
by ekotan on 2019/05/03 17:05
Complains there’s no Internet connection over 4G even though every other app on my iPhone can see the Internet. In fact, I am posting this review now using the Internet on the same phone. Please hire some competent programmers.

Backwards and confusing
by Elliebibble on 2019/05/03 03:29
If a person has been (and usually always is) rude, unnecessarily explicit or just totally unpleasant towards you and you block them, why on earth would their profile show up in the lineup at the bottom and top of the app in the menus? You also can’t block someone before you send them a message or two first? Which I don’t understand at all. I’ve recognised plenty of unfavourable types that have harassed me elsewhere, whom I know to be inappropriate or not to my liking one bit, and can’t get rid of them to keep my use of the app simpler and stress-free. The keyboard also messes up too regularly when you’ve been using the app for a few minutes and every other letter just switches to caps. I’ve never known that on any other app, it only happens on this one. I keep seeing people that live the total opposite end of the country as “potential”, even though I haven’t set it for more than 15miles. The options/settings are practically hidden. They would rather fill the app with in-app purchase ads than keep it easy to use and safe for their users. I don’t get it. You’re censored in your bio and messages, but a LOT slip through the net and I’ve found many people send me totally unacceptable messages, and all the while I can’t even use the word “fecking”, or it says the message was sent, and hasn’t been at all.

Couldn’t read the full messages sent , only first half appeared , so didn’t know what people were saying
Falling behind other apps..
by Becca.93 on 2019/05/01 20:11
What is it with the text/pop ups when your writing a message. Every word you write it brings a pop up box of some strange emoji/graphics (that are totally irrelevant) that blocks what you have written in the message box. There should be a feature to turn this off or even have it as an add on where you click a button to get the graphics. And another thing, please add an option to turn meet me notifications off! If I notifications for the app turned on I get endless amount of ‘meet me’ notifications. I only want to be notified if someone sends me a message (or favs me or something).

The update with the addition of the in-app chat is the ridiculously bad. There’s a delay and it put letters in uppercase when you don’t want them to be. It makes trying to have a conversation extremely difficult. There’s also no way I can see to report a problem. Pof also do nothing to prevent fake profiles or those who catfish. Reporting the profile does nothing.

Fake central!
by Grahamat on 2019/04/27 21:21
I’m sure that the concept is appealing to many people but, frankly, the number of fakes on the site is beyond belief. It wouldn’t be so bad if POF did anything about it but they don’t respond in any way to emails and obviously have no intention of supporting their members. Even the ones daft enough to actually pay to upgrade. I have been on POF for a while but there are far too many women with no intention of actually finding a guy and it mainly seems to be a dating site for hill walkers or just plain made up profiles. Don’t waste your time with it.
Rubbish

Fake profiles galore!!
by GeoNeo87 on 2019/04/27 14:17
This is the worst dating app for fake profiles by a mile. I cannot believe they haven’t put something in place during sign up to prevent this. It’s so simple. Bumble for example makes you take a picture of yourself in a certain, or doing a certain action, when you sign up, and you then have to be verified. It’s like these guys give a damn about this problem. All I ever get is messages from gorgeous looking women saying “Hey There :)” which turn out to be bots which are deleted 5 minutes later. I don’t get a single message otherwise. As soon as I log on, I get about 6 of these fake messages, despite not getting any when I’m offline. Pathetic. Sort it out POF, and stop letting these “people” making a mockery of your app!!
Not what I expected

Makes decisions for you!
by fishykella on 2019/04/26 11:36
When I set a search area, I do it for a reason. I don’t appreciate it when the app then overrides this and sets a larger search area. What’s the point of having the choice in the first place?!
Well they should employ me
by Be3r on 2019/04/26 11:32
I seem to only match with every camera girl or escort going and not a single real woman . The other thing on here is the man or lady should be allowed to choose the age group by which she or he would like to be contacted to and not stuck to an age group by which this app thinks is appropriate. And sadly to this apps knowlege I don’t want to date a 49 year old lady unless I choose too and I would like to write to some one if they older than 18 unless they choose not to talk to me . And fake profiles matches on meet me just so you pay for the function only to find no one there that matches with you . Then girls on here won’t give you a chance so what’s the purpose I should be hired to fish the fakes out .

Unfair practice of banning. Chatted to a guy, went on a few dates (meanwhile I took profile offline as liked him). Turned out to be married and full of lies. Went to sign back in and I’m blocked. Can only imagine it was the ‘lovely’ gent I met. No way to challenge. Seems to be the latest thing to do to people.

Has got worse not better
by Andie P on 2018/02/25 18:41
I have recently returned to POF having been off for a year or so. I thought apps were supposed to improve with updates not get worse. The most annoying thing is the “meet me” feature. It used to have the users town/city noted on the screen. So you could quickly see if someone was within a distance that suited you and along with their image you could make a quick decision to see if there is an initial mutual attraction. However, now I have no idea where anyone is. It’s too long winded to look at every profile. Surely the purpose of “meet me” is a quick fire thing. So now my inbox is invaded with lots of messages from mutual matches who live the other end of the country to me, which then leaves me either wasting time messaging these people saying we live too far apart or looking like a horrible person and ignoring them. It’s all so unnecessary, JUST PUT THE LOCATION BACK ON PLEASE! Finally in messages any new messages used to be highlighted and easy to spot, but that is no longer the case. PLUS another really annoying thing is whilst you’re reading/replying to someone if a new message comes in their little face shows in a circle above the message you’re writing. So it’s easy to get confused as to who you’re talking to. Whoever designed this clearly hasn’t used be app. Please make this app more user friendly again like it used to be.

Not worth your time!
by MichaelBainbridge on 2019/02/19 23:45
After using the free version for a week I decided to give the app a chance and pay for a subscription for a few months to see how it goes. The app has tried to be too much like Tinder. The only real popular way of finding other profiles to look at and to where you’ll receive most of your notifications is through the “Meet Me” feature which is basically swipe left or right if you find them attractive. It doesn’t match you into a conversation so there’s really no point in it as most people don’t take it seriously or follow up on their responses as you’ll have people answer that they want to meet you but not follow up with a message. By far the worst thing is the amount of spam/bot profiles purely for the intention of either “E-Whoring” (pretending to be a attractive female and sell nude photographs) or a genuine bot sending you links for adult websites. They all have the same cliche profile with a WhatsApp number or describing they only talk on Kik Messenger. Amongst outrageous profiles suggesting to meet for other things, but you get the idea. Won’t be good until they implicate some sort of verification process like Zoosk to verify profile photos to be genuine and make it harder to make a profile with some sort of other verification.
I have tried everything else other than to leave the app to protect my information etc etc
by Blairwitch68 on 2018/11/08 10:38
Profile and all details are available to anyone who has access to anything that I would prefer to be sorted as I have requested that you can get it sorted for the last time that I'm going to be trying it again after the payment of it being an upgraded account to come to the end and then I'll not be renewing it again for the reasons that I've stated to you more than once before and you still don't understand what exactly you are meant to do for your customer and your staff needs a lot more training to be honest about it and it's a safe place for whatever it professed is the aim of the site and service I am not receiving the customer service that I'm paying for you to monitor my personal account details etc etc so that I'm wanting to be resolved ASAP thanks for the information that is obviously not happening with my profile information etc so that you might have a chance to let me know when you have sorted the whole process out for sure xdebi
Search feature waste of time!
by Jonnycoop on 2018/09/24 14:00
What have you done to the search feature? Mile set to 100 and girls age between 21 - 39 and you’ve shown me about 20 girls, really?! Only 20 girls in a 100 mile radius?! Who ever is running the app needs to be sacked!!! How about you put it back how it was and let people decide the parameters. If I set it to 10 miles and girls aged between 30 - 40 and it only shows me a few results, guess what, I’ll change it myself, it’s that simple. I don’t think you have ever had the search feature working like it should. What is the point of giving people options only for you to decide for them???? Update: nothing has changed only now I can’t sign in at all, I’ve forgot my password and when using you recover password feature it says it has sent me a link to my email but nothing arrives. I’ve done this about 6 times now and each time I get “we have sent an email to you inbox” but nothing arrives! You guys running this app are 100% useless!!! Update 2: Still can not sign in. I use the reset password feature but receive no email to reset! Unbelievable just how useless you guys are!
Rubbish
by Shrek1974 on 2018/09/23 15:05
Well where do I start with this first off when you search for people there never seems to be anyone online it never saves your search details and changes them all the time and when you put 35 miles I’m in brings people up from miles away what’s the point of that needs sorting out. Meet me section why would you show people in there when on there profiles it clearly states there not a upgraded member so they can’t see you want to meet them so they shouldn’t be put in the meet me part. verification to slow down the scammers online with fake pictures and Profiles make each member verify themselves would be good. I can remember when everything on pof was free to see if they read your message the meet me section as well but as always these people get greedy then f—k the whole site up go back to the old days with the site I won’t be joking up again as it’s a complete joke when you message them they don’t even get back to you with answers stay away if your serious about meeting someone as you will only have a small chance unless you sign up for every extra they offer
Search is useless
by GatsoSml on 2019/04/01 22:11
Poor app. The search is useless as it overrides what you select and expands the search but gives unsuitable matches far too far away and of an unsuitable age range. I entered my criteria for a reason. I’m not interested in someone half or twice my own age 200 miles away! Otherwise it’s not a bad app for free but needs an incognito setting to allow you to look without showing as live online to stop those who don’t like that you haven’t immediately replied getting funny or those who you are chatting with think you are talking to loads of others when actually you may be just checking something on their own profile or clearing out messages you aren’t interested in. The “meet me” is pointless as most don’t have it and those that hit it have never read your profile. Room for improvement. Certainly not worth paying for but at least bit does let you message and do quite a lot for free so good on that score.
An upgrade is a must!
by Helen.se on 2019/04/21 00:05
POF app seems to be years behind other messaging apps. I like to send multiple messages to a person instead of writing one big one in a massive bubble. It’s just a preference of mine and I know people who like the same. Unfortunately every time I send a message, I’m taken back to a main mailbox and I have to open the chat again to send another message. Why oh why?? Also, the messages aren’t pushed automatically if I have a chat open. I will only get a little notification that a person sent me a message and it’ll only show if I click on that notification. Another issue is people’s ‘favourite’ meet me option! I never used it and, no matter how many meet me notifications I get, I never will. Why don’t you offer a choice of turning this option off and, as a price to pay, the profile will be excluded from viewing? Please, think about it!
Game not social meet
by Karmc99 on 2018/12/09 15:06
Like others before me, I have found that people treat this site as a game not a chance to find a potential friend and partner. The 'meet me' function is a one-way game where the players waste others people's time sending messages they don't mean. It's just like playing 'hot or not.' Most contacts do not read profiles, seem surprised when you are not their type. Support doesn't exist, no useful features like searching on interests, distances are all incorrect, and search returns are all inaccurate. The matches function returns all gender of one specific age. Some of the profile categories are pointless - sibling position (youngest/oldest), pets, drugs, etc yet education is vague until degree. There is no search on lifestyle such as bookish v sporty v travel so one could search on personality type. This might help with the suggested matches. Also introvert v extrovert would be helpful. Why do so many people want to walk on beaches?
Great intuitive application.....
by Frodo_84 on 2019/03/01 16:56
I love Plenty Of Fishes intuitive application and is much better than their website! I just need a potential date, to answer my messages! the only thing I do not like is their ‘Advanced Search’ section! okay you can see who is online first. But once you reach person No. 50 and exit that section to go back onto the main menu then go back into the ‘Advanced Search’ section. You have to go through the list again and sometimes their are new profiles which come up in the process of going through 50 odd profiles again which takes a good hour or more! Which is one of my pet hates when it comes to this app! otherwise it is a great app, keep up the great work Plenty Of Fish!
I thought this site was a dating site and not a chatting site
by Jackson/Sunny Girl on 2019/04/04 16:50
It funny how you come on to a datin site and all people what to do is chat rather than make a date, see if there is some sort of click and then take it from there, a chat on the phone to make sure you like the voice but to go backwards and forwards ping-pong text drives me absolutely crazy I cannot understand why people just don't meet and see how it goes and then slowly you can see if you're got that connection. I also cannot see the point of coming on a dating site with no photo and to start a conversation with just one word, hi or just hello how are you, why not read our profile and pick something out of a profile but makes it interesting to the both of you and you're trying to connect with, surely a proper conversation rather than a one word conversation is much better it also shows a bit of intelligence.
Second time I have set up a profile, second time it has deleted me!
by Ness20 on 2018/09/23 11:00
I really like the POF concept. I really love that you have to answer some personal questions and be clear about your intentions from the start. HOWEVER!!! I spent considerable time creating a profile - TWICE! First time I was able to use the app for about a month before it asked me to sign in and didn’t recognise my E-mail and password. (Before you ask - yes it was correct, but I still tried to reset it using the password link - no email ever arrived.) SECOND time was yesterday! Set up an account - try to get in it today and the exact same has happened! Even tried to log onto the website through safari and it still wouldn’t recognise that I had set up an account!!! Please please please would you sort this out - because I honestly do think this is the best dating site out there. Only if I could actually use it. 🤔
Anyone genuine..??!!
by Hoping for a miracle on 2017/11/23 06:00
Well,please please POF people can you do something with section ( Meet Me). Why would I want to meet someone from eg: Southampton/ Cardiff or even further when I live in the Midlands.!!! Also the Mobile Users. The distance below photo doesn't correspond with where the person lives. Please sort it out, it's embarrassing when someone ask to chat and you find out that they live the other side of the country..!! because the mobile section says 2 miles. Thank you Since I last wrote this you have changed the app again, even more difficult where you don’t show where the person is from!!! Why??? You definitely are making the app less available to those who not paying a fee, until one day you are like the others:-( Thank you
Used to be good
by slayqeen on 2019/02/15 10:25
This app was good back in the day I used it I got two serious relationship. Since I rejoin in December it’s deleted my account three times I had to sign up again . When i tried to login it does not recognise my email I even click forget password I don’t get the email to reset . This is the most annoying thing is that I only get to use the account for 2 days then I can’t get back into my account .the thing is you can’t contact the people at POF at all as I'm was worried about my pictures just being there when I can’t login it’s the app as be come ridiculously now . I made another account for the fourth time after 2 days of using it my account is deleted again I just don’t understand it need to improve massively. It’s very disappointing as this is the only dating app I have used for the last 5 years with no problem.?
Avoid it
by M_Anthony_br on 2018/12/15 11:32
The app is clunky and buggy with random crashes. You always appear online unless you log out completely so just closing the app work change your online status. POF will ban you for no apparent reason. The app seems to attract women who are impatient and/or jaded and rather than just ignoring your message they will block you which will result in your email/profile being banned for life from the app/website. This attitude towards blocking users is part of the POF culture so don't be surprised! The messenger isn't an instant messenger which is completely ridiculous in nearly 2019! The messenger is so archaic and reloads the page after every message you send and returns you the message list which means having a conversation with flow is extremely difficult. The class of women is low with many women expressing racist preferences.
Needs much better developers !
by Nuneaton reviewer on 2018/09/18 16:47
The Meet Me function presents profiles of people over 100 miles away. I live slap bang in the middle of the Midlands, equidistant from Birmingham, Coventry, and Leicester, but have been been presented with profiles as far away as Bedford, Cambridge, Gloucester, and Manchester ! The age range on the search functionality doesn’t work properly. I’ve tested this thoroughly and no matter what age range or distance I specify it returns profiles that differ from this considerably. For example, I set a distance of 25 miles from my postcode in the Midlands and it returns profiles from over 100 miles away ! Often hangs or reports an error, particularly on 3G, let alone 4G ! The App Support button on in the AppStore app just takes you to a load of frequently asked questions pages ! I’ve not been able to find a way to actually contact PoF !
Falling behind other apps now
by Amlister on 2018/06/04 22:33
Quite sad that POF developers aren’t interested in helping people or making this the best app. The reporting system is still limited, fake profiles still a huge problem for genuine people still. The meet me and matches page still don’t bring up those within your filter parameters. The catch of the day in a yellow border come up every 3/4 swipes which becomes annoying. Would be nice to develop a bumped into notification/marker/flag? Would be nice to develop a page for those that are free to meet page so for those that don’t have a lot of free time because of work and kids can set up times/ possible locations/ activities so people can have the opportunity to meet more?!!! Also the deleting of accounts with no helpline, no reason, no notification, no opportunity to sort anything just because someone reports you and wants you off is really tiring now POF, definitely better apps coming forward and your behind the times. Annoyed and frustrating as it’s getting worse, for those genuine it’s not working....it’s been a week I can’t get on. I’m above board, not rude, genuine pics, looking for long term and think it’s time POF gets smarter and bring yourself more competitive again...
Full of scammers & false profiles
by stevewmunro on 2017/09/24 06:21
Just horrible! I have very little experience of dating websites but if this is truly representative then I will have nothing to do with any of them. The site is absolutely saturated with fake profiles to the point that if you get a message saying someone wants to meet/has sent a message your initial response will get to be - another scam! The site do remove profiles very quickly (quite often by the time you look at who has 'liked' you their profile has already been deleted) but I can only imagine their disinterest in proactively stopping these profiles lies in the pride they take in their headline number of 'members' Lastly they automatically enrol you for automatic renewal so when my initial block finished I went to the site to ensure I wouldn't waste my money again and found a link which said go to iTunes to TURN ON automatic renewal (which would suggest that it's not currently!) so I assumed it was fine and yet got a message saying that they had resigned me, took my money and, despite my vociferous protests, refuse to refund me. I know it's hard but save your money, this is ruthless uber capitalism exploiting people's insecurities for money - it's everything that's wrong with modern society
So far-so not good
by Hypnotic_ on 2018/07/31 05:42
When someone blocks you-you should be notified. When you block someone you should be given the option of keeping your chat history in case you ever wanted to unblock them and patch things up. You can’t pick up where you left off and you’re left having to search for them again. I use the refine button to limit the amount of results that come up but I keep getting lots of profiles not suited to me at all. If I choose a certain race or religion for example-I get lots of profiles with any race and religion when I have quite clearly specified what I’d like to show up. I think there should be a nudge button where if someone hasn’t messaged you for a few days-and vice versa, you’ll be nudged and prompted to message them unless you have lost interest. People creating accounts with no display pic or a pic of a quote etc which isn’t actually them should be banned. It’s dangerous enough with online dating without people then creating a profile where their pic can’t be seen. Or the ones who won’t show their pic if they’re not interested. Online dating is daunting enough without people playing games and hiding their pic.
Awful
by Gsampsonfanzx on 2019/03/09 07:35
Pof has been down for the past 2 months. With the website deleting your account, even if you’ve made purchases in the accounts. Then it takes weeks to get a new account made as the page doesn’t load. Pof needs to sort this out. Once the page was up and running before all the faults it was fine, I met many people from the site, even had a relationship. People have met from the site and have got married and had children. The site let’s you see who has viewed you, you don’t have to talk to people you don’t like as you can block them. But Pof should only let pictures of the person on the account, I’ve had many unwanted pictures sent to me. Once the site is fixed it might be better. For the time being don’t download it, as you won’t be able to.
Curious
by gin sling and tonic on 2019/01/08 16:36
There have been several men who complain that I’ve been online and not responded to a message they sent me. I’ve been quite shocked by their attitude, calling me very rude and ill mannered. On each of those occasions I have simply either been too busy to respond immediately, or online but working, not necessarily monitoring the site. One ‘gentleman’ recently only gave me 1-2 minutes between sending more and more irate comments. At the time I was short of time, rushing to work and really upset, when I finally managed to check the site, to read his nasty posts. Is it possible to warn people that, we cannot always respond immediately and don’t appreciate being reprimanded, when it’s unfair?
Has a mind of it’s own
by doddlechops on 2018/08/05 22:25
Since the new update it doesn’t retain my search parameters. It changes them all by itself constantly. I could vaguely understand it doing it after closing the app and re opening it. But I can go to search, change the parameters and immediately it just searches with whatever parameters it likes....sort it out, it’s getting right on my nerves! Since I last wrote my review, I have discovered that on the search feature it doesn’t bring up every profile either. I select by last visit and nobody comes up as ‘online now’. The people that do appear that are in my area are about the same 5 people. What is going on? How am I supposed to get the most out of this app? It barely functions!
It’s ok
by GoopyGOk on 2018/10/12 18:13
I have met a few people off here so it is good in that sense as that’s the reason you go on! But the app is so slow and intermittent as to when it works sometimes when I’m typing a message I can’t even see what I’m writing because it’s stops showing up also tells me I have no internet connection when I do and I know it’s not my speed that’s a problem because everything else works. Also one major thing is the fake profiles surely there’s something more POF can do to verify accounts more sufficiently. All in all I’d say the app is worth using you can always exchange numbers with people to avoid the app issues just make sure there not fakes first!
Better than tinder by far
by justspreadingthelove on 2018/04/02 10:24
It's a dating app it's not going to be easy youl have to endure some weirdos meet some clowns but all in all is a good laugh iv met some real nice people off here and even had a few long relationships but best of all for any man is Iv had so much fanny off of here it is unreal and is easily the best date app about with the best results,the only one thing the should do is limit the amount of filtered pictures women can have you should atleast have two unfiltered pics so us men don't waste our time meeting fat window lickers who look great in a picture that's filter
More like Plenty of bugs & perverts
by Viky7258 on 2018/09/21 23:33
For those genuinely trying to find love, a partner, even a friend beware of perverts a plenty on here. The amount of user names men have to describe their no doubt flaccid member is insane, even the likes of “exxtra_long” as a name is eye rollingly bad... and then you’ll also find the “I’m 21 but I put I’m 42 as I want to meet older women” little boys on there too. Technology side of things is terrible, the app keeps freezing or lags like hell. Even as a paying member you can’t avoid this, it’s really bad and the interface just went from a nice dark background to the shade of Ross’ teeth in Friends when he bleached them.... both will blind you silly, what jerk made that interface change?! I won’t be renewing my subscription later on, as a freebie it’s fine but sod finding Mr Right thru this mess.
Plenty of Fakes
by iNBig on 2017/10/02 23:01
I had the pleasure of finding my previous girlfriend on this app and shared many happy memories. But since going back on the app I noticed the app is increasingly becoming plagued with a ridiculous amount of fake profiles. As soon as I would log in for 2 seconds to see any notifications I would be spammed with over 10 notifications about someone wanting to meet then to discover they're just spam accounts and it is beyond annoying. The meet me feature is so pointless because you can see who liked you in the notifications tab, and if they don't appeal to you, you won't like them back or interact with them, so really it's a pointless feature 😄. This app used to be alright but now it lacks quality in features and has led to disengagement.
Terrible App
by Manhattan235 on 2019/05/04 11:05
This app is absolutely shocking - the messaging system being one of the worst features (second only to the overwhelming number of bots and fake profiles. At least 20-30 messages a day of just “Hey there :)” followed by a link to escort sites. This could be easily avoided with modern techniques but the developers deliberately choose not to, probably because it drives more revenue than real users.) Trying to write a message either results in the keyboard constantly switching to capital letters mid-sentence, or the cursor repeatedly scrolling out of view. Also, the “last online” time in the inbox/sent items is incorrect until the app is restarted. Come on guys - you’re charging £20 a month for this, you could at least make sure the platform is solid.
Falling behind other apps..
by Becca.93 on 2019/05/01 20:11
What is it with the text/pop ups when your writing a message. Every word you write it brings a pop up box of some strange emoji/graphics (that are totally irrelevant) that blocks what you have written in the message box. There should be a feature to turn this off or even have it as an add on where you click a button to get the graphics. And another thing, please add an option to turn meet me notifications off! If I notifications for the app turned on I get endless amount of ‘meet me’ notifications. I only want to be notified if someone sends me a message (or favs me or something).
Why
by Buttons 1990 on 2018/01/13 07:50
If you don't like it don't use it. Everyone is entitled to use it how they like. If you don't like an individual, POF have made it very easy, you report said individual. Also just before all the negs rise up with there pitch forks, if you can't have a laugh, be a bit immature from time to time etc. Why the hell are you on a dating app!? If you can't laugh while getting to know someone, how do you ever expect to enjoy yourself if it turned into something more long term?! Anyway kids, my rant is over. Enjoy and happy new year to the lot of ya! 😜
Used to be ok. Waste of time now.
by Johnnylambretta on 2017/12/29 21:02
A lot of fake profiles, single muma ego boost club types and far too many filtered pig ears and nose pics too, POF should ban this kind of pic. Been on most of 2017 and managed to get two dates. Out of almost 1000 messages, had less than 30 replies, most of which were almost identical which makes me think they’re automated. When I did receive mail from a profile, it always said “Hey there”. When I replied, I either got nothing back or what again seemed like an automated message. If you’re the sensitive type (I’m far from it) this probably isn’t the place to find romance. You’ll be better off meeting someone in the real world, maybe take up some activities. I’d say it’s about 70-80% male members. Internet dating has had its day...
Like shooting fish in a barrel
by Llando griffin on 2017/12/01 12:38
Pof is a fantastic way to look at all the women in your area that just aren’t interested in you. I love the “judge by the pictures, then send a message if you think they’re attractive enough” mentality behind it. Sending lots of messages to people only to be either ignored or given a rude comeback is also a massive plus. In all I would recommend pof to someone who has spent the last year or so looking for love in their bin or the local bus stop. As, they’ll have just as much success with pof, but won’t catch a cold while doing it. I especially like the “upgraded” part of the app too... “you’re a minger and you’re never gonna pull, pay us some money and we’ll make sure that more people turn you down or ignore you’re messages” I think I’m future I’ll look for the love of my life in more likely areas, like the bottom of a crisp packet or in the hole in my sock. Thanks for all the hard work you put in to taking my money pof, and thanks for the many wasted hours contemplating why I’m such an undesirable piece of scum that wouldn’t be touched by the lowest humanity has to offer with a ten foot barge pole.
Decent but flawed still
by TdRitchens on 2018/04/10 11:36
Updates fix nothing. After i send a message i have random letters and numbers appear on the end of the message? Some users are “premium” so even if you match you cant message them. Even tho the note on the screen says you can “message a match” it wont let me message them because “this user only accepts message from matches” even tho i matched them??! Location filter isnt accurate. We checked this between a group of us and it said we were all diffrent distances away from each other? Benifits to i tho are the ability to message MOST people and if they reply its another positive 😂
Pof review
by 123987derek on 2018/06/06 21:25
Yeah nah was going to give it one star but it’s not the apps fault that everyone has a massive ego and won’t reply to messages. A lot of bots come up but they are easily spotted. I feel some sort of reward system would work well. The more active you are and more info you fill out, the more you stand out maybe? I’m fed up of blank profiles with no information filled out and they only way to get to know someone is with one word replies. Room for improvement but overall it’s one of the better of a bad bunch.
Not a bad site or app
by madmaxbitesyou on 2018/01/15 04:12
Not a bad site or app to be honest. However seems rather pointless having people communicating from the other end of the country unless you want long distance relationship. Also you can type a long introductory message press send and be told that recipient only accept messages from paying upgraded members. Also being a straight guy I find it off putting when searching females to find transgender women. Especially when I've examined their profiles totally unaware of what they encompass. So, there is a place somewhere from trans people to date, I just don't want to look at their profiles.
Sort the search filter results out
by pjanon on 2018/02/18 23:44
Easy to use but the Search functionality is very frustrating. It allows you to put in certain things like distance from you, preferred height range etc. But then brings back a load of results outside of your search criteria; too short, too far away. This is the only aspect that had frustrated me though. It does what it says on the tin and the quality of other people on there has nothing to do with the app. - that's just pot luck. There would appear to be quite a lot of time wasters on here and seemingly a lot of accounts that are no longer active. Maybe good to purge after xx days of not using / going on line? Just a thought! Also brings up ladies when using meet me randomly!!!
Don’t bother
by Chappers821 on 2019/04/24 11:12
What an appalling site. It’s been taken over by fake accounts and bots. Here’s a list of problems with it 1. When you log on, the fake/bot accounts can tell and suddenly you have half a dozen “meet me” requests from fake accounts 2. You do a search and it decides (it even tells you) “actually, we’ve ignored that and expanded the area and age range so it looks like you have more applicable matches” so instead of seeing between ages 30 and 40 in my area, I am suddenly looking at 46 year olds 200 miles away?! 3. Subscription is expensive and it doesn’t actually give you much more. The “extended profile” you can read is essentially 4 extra bits of info, 1 of which is saying how many kids her parents had and whether she/he is oldest, youngest or middle child 4. Fake accounts outnumber real accounts 5. To report a fake account isn’t easy, you end up having to justify why you think they should be deleted That’s just the immediate obvious problems, but believe me, there are a LOT more. Used to be a good site but seems to have been given up on by the developers.
Feedback
by Seb south on 2017/12/10 13:00
Better than some similar apps but lack of functionality on the non-pay version means it is less useful. In particular still a lot of time wasted because you can’t specify a maximum distance you want your prospect pool from. I live relatively near london but not looking from someone from over 60/70 km so immediately I get a lot of people who don’t meet my criteria. I want to have properly qualified prospects - so my time isn’t wasted! Also bit of a complex interface; I still don’t think I understand all the app elements - but nothing I can see can give me a quick run through. With so many apps, each one has to be immediately self evident and give me what I want! 😊😎
Seems like made only by junior developers
by Carla_Costa on 2018/08/12 19:27
I don’t even know where to start... The app has sooo many useless features competing with each other for attention that is overwhelming!! Is the worst experience I have ever seen in a dating app. *You can’t choose people nearby unless you go on the option “nearby”, where it should be in general. *Every-time you sent a message, you need to go back all over again to the chat screen and the app automatically send you back to your list, making impossible for anyone to have a proper convo. *The chat interface gives you an input that you click thinking is to write the message as it is at the bottom of the chat screen, but NOOOO, is for you to upgrade the app, so you than realise it is to purposely confuse the user and make a purchase. So misleading! * near me, will responde (the most non-sense feature), meet me... all so confusing and useless, does this company invest in the user experience at all? If they do, fire the team, because they clearly can’t do their job! The app has potential but all wasted in the hands of terrible decisions makers.
Welcome to the pay wall
by Zombiesdgm on 2019/02/12 22:11
Let’s start with the positive things about the app… nope I’ve got nothing Now the negatives Too open to spam, yes it’s free but come on. Same spam profile wanting to meet several times a day with a different profile name Search feature, just remove it. Pointless putting in anything as they change the settings back to 100miles Meet me, sure i want to meet people from any area other than around me Nearby feature, again just remove it. Shows people near by and then you view their profile and they’re from several miles away More prospect, as above. Bit pointless when it’s people who aren’t in the area And finally. What’s the point in asking people to set their preferences/ what they’re looking for? All of these features seemed to work well a few years back, even the search feature allowed you to search by name. Brilliant when you saw a profile but didn’t have the time to message them and wanted to go back at a later date. I can’t say for certain but I’m pretty sure all these features work if you pay the monthly fee.
Well they should employ me
by Be3r on 2019/04/26 11:32
I seem to only match with every camera girl or escort going and not a single real woman . The other thing on here is the man or lady should be allowed to choose the age group by which she or he would like to be contacted to and not stuck to an age group by which this app thinks is appropriate. And sadly to this apps knowlege I don’t want to date a 49 year old lady unless I choose too and I would like to write to some one if they older than 18 unless they choose not to talk to me . And fake profiles matches on meet me just so you pay for the function only to find no one there that matches with you . Then girls on here won’t give you a chance so what’s the purpose I should be hired to fish the fakes out .
It’s ok. Kind of worried that I might have wasted my money
by Dalee451 on 2018/03/30 04:47
I’m not silly. I know how these dating apps work with all of their fake accounts to hook you in thinking you’ve got some easy matches. The problem is it’s really quite bad on here. Lots of adversity if for websites and call girls. I kind of wanted to meet real people. I would have thought that they would have spent a bit more time administrating thake accounts and keeping the site clean. I kind of feel like there are probably better apps out there, but I’ve paid for 3 months now so I’m going to have to wait it out and see what happens now I guess. Oh well...
Used to be the best now try the rest!
by Floyd462663626275 on 2018/08/03 09:21
This dating app is all about profit now, ok you will get views, meet me’s and messages for the first three days (the taster) but after that if you still haven’t met anyone you now seem to be hidden, I have noticed this after five / six times now of deleting my account and starting afresh (they are also getting onto this as last time I had to also delete the app because they set the app to removed profile so I could not set up a new profile). They have also added tokens as well as a subscription so even if you buy a subscription you still don’t have access to all features. Try another app instead as Pof plenty of fish is now plenty of greed!
My POF experience
by ifonlythisappworked on 2019/03/01 09:22
I can only speak for myself and the vibes I have encountered on POF that thankfully been positive. I have met some people from this site which has led to having long term friendships. So I would say that it’s a good site based on how I’ve presented myself and my description. Some People do read and that surely saves a lot of time and pre answered questions. On that note I’d like to say a Big Thanks to POF for giving me to the opportunity to communicate with others and make new friends.
Fake accounts
by armour man on 2019/02/08 12:06
Now I’m neglected to do this but after spending money on the app to upgrade, to save time wasting with everyone. Heres the sad reasons why I hate going on POF, As soon as I open the app I’m bombarded with several fake accounts asking to meet me? But what makes me laugh is the amount of accounts that do this all ask for or are the listed below; Fake Nudity Scams And just people asking you to join their web pages or cam chats! Or even asking you join other web programs where this sort of content is acceptable! If anything POF obviously do not monitor their site. Cause if they did I’d be able to focus on finding my true match and not spending all my time on POF report the several accounts every time I go on the app! I hope the people read this and Please fix This is why you got one star of me, and don’t give people any old rubbish just to keep them sweet I’ve been in POF for over a year now and the fake accounts numbers have multiplied rapidly ever since. Witch dose tell me your not monitoring the site anymore am I right?? Get in touch soon POF
PoF
by Splinter5043 on 2018/02/19 00:22
Whilst the initial concept of this Site is a wondrous idea... there are unfortunately those (male and from varied feedback, females too) who sadly completely try to take advantage of those who are genuinely on this Site. Incorrect information, much younger photos, even in my experience ...the pictures were of his more handsome brother!! However, lve been invited to two marriages of two friends who have met their now husbands on here, as well as four couples who have met each other on this Site, so fingers crossed if l don’t met Mr Right elsewhere...hopefully l will on here! 😊
Best dating app.
by Kneeeecapper on 2018/01/11 13:00
This app lets you write about yourself, rather than just a photo, age & location to be swiped left or right. Although it does have that feature, it doesn’t need to be used. You can easily spot boring women who say their hobbies including “nights out, but also nights in”... brilliant, I know. 😂 I’ve had two year-long relationships from this app in the past. I’m single again now and I’m happy to try the app again. I’d be happy to pay for the premium service, but not at its current price. Also, my landlord’s Broadband has a censor on it, so I have to access this via the cellular network. Apparently Sky Broadband Shield thinks this should be blocked until 9pm because it’s for adults. I think you should also allow people to get or give honest, anonymous feedback on profiles on request. So many people have awful profiles and they blame the app or other users. 😂
Go back to the way you was
by Smoothjt71 on 2018/08/07 17:34
Used to be really good, but not as free as it was, don’t like the fact you can’t search for who likes you, just starting to get greedy and forcing people to start paying for services that used to be free, P O F has built a good reputation for being totally free, but is a shame that it’s starting to go down the money making path, I personally won’t pay for any dating services, take away the path that forces you to pay for services and just build on premium accounts and make em better, don’t begin to restrict services that used to be free, people see greed a million miles away these days and could have the potential to damage everything you have built
World of fakes
by Aircooled75 on 2018/04/29 07:13
Well the pains of online dating (and I use that word loosely) driven by a needy bunch of the weird , strangely silent,rude and not ready for a cup of tea let alone dating . Ladies you will get photos sent to you of men’s working areas that I can guarantee. Gents if you think she is out your range trust me you will be right , mind you it seems even if she isn’t you will be also be right. To many people talking to much fresh meat to keep conversations lasting and interesting.... so if you fancy having what dignity you have left ripped from you in a way that only North Korea could do,then my advice is to crack on and sign up to a world of pain miserable eye stinging months of sending messages . To the mad world of idiots .

Hi POF I deleted my account when I met someone on pof but we broke up after some time, then when I went to create a new account within 24 hours it was deleted, I then went to make another account and within 24 hours it was deleted, what you’ll find is once you delete your original account you cannot go back, shame it’s a great app and theirs lots of people looking for love, I’ve contacted support multiple times but all you get back is the generic “we’ve received your e-mail someone will be in touch” only find you’ll never get responded to and when you try to send another e-mail it will just auto-decline because they’ve blocked you.
