DONT NOT USE
by mr.jwet on 2019/09/19 06:26
Worst dating app ever . Fake profiles & just wants money
Easy to navigate, lots of followers !!
by Islandinsc on 2019/09/19 06:12
Easy to use. I recommend it over the others that charge you see the same people on both.
New update is not good
by Ashley aka Southern Queen on 2019/09/19 06:01
Since the new update I have been having issues with the app. When you open a message or the app it sounds like noises in the background like as if I am watching a video and then it goes away. I’m not sure what’s going on but it only happened when the app was updated.
Help

Scam central
by dont trust to easily on 2019/09/19 04:34
I met a few guys on here but for the most part I was scammed by 2 “different” men. One of which I had my local police dept involved. The other I got scammed out of a lot of money. I wouldn’t trust this website. Beware ladies.

glitchy
by nythescienceguy on 2019/09/19 03:20
for some reason i can never log back into my account and when i try to use a recovery email it doesn’t work. i made a second account trying to see if this was just a glitch it did the same thing. Also the app was glitching and wouldn’t let me send people messages/would delete messages. They need to fix this.
Ridiculous
by Dmoney1525 on 2019/09/19 03:13
My profile was deleted several times. I broke no rules and did nothing wrong. Just magically disappeared with no reason.

Profile vanished TWICE!!! Don’t do it!
by Jag340 on 2019/09/19 02:11
So disgusted! Created my entire profile and about a half hour later my account locked up. When I tried to log back in it said wrong credentials. I figured maybe it was user error. No response when I requested an email for password reset. Went through all the trouble of recreating the profile ughhh and it happened AGAIN!!! VERY aggravated that my profile could very well still be active and I have no control. Will never recommend it to anyone!
Waste of time
by topekachu on 2019/09/19 00:43
I spent real thought and time putting my profile together and I got banned 18 min into talking with someone with no moderator oversight. There is no way to challenge the ban. All my pictures were appropriate and I was talking about my favorite Disney princess. I don’t understand how this is acceptable practice.
Confused

Price package
by mallymal223 on 2019/09/18 17:45
The price are ridiculous, you can’t buy separate months. You have buy packages, which is well over 30+ spending at one time.
Absurd redesign is the last straw.
by Santa Cruz Uber pro on 2019/09/18 17:12
Last night I canceled my premier membership. This ridiculous redesign is the last straw. Do you actually employee professional web developers? One of the first things you learn is to use as little bright white as possible on the screen. Your white backgrounds along with the neon colors make the images harder to see, the text harder to read, and wash out all of the photos. It’s like somebody driving towards you at night with their highbeams on. You can’t see anything else. The entire team that was responsible for this redesign should be downsized and put on the janitorial staff. It’s bad enough that you cannot control the fakes, scammers and frauds that constantly create false profiles. But to turn the user interface into a neon cartoon was, like I said, the last straw. You have lost my business.
POF owner Match.com - update is lipstick on a pig
by PJTG1 on 2019/09/18 15:57
Latest update is nothing more than lipstick on a pig and the pig is POF. POF is owned by Match.com (NASDAQ: MTCH) and is worth over $5,000,000,000 and their stock price is near All-Time Highs. It would seem that a multi-billion dollar company with a reputation to uphold and customers to keep satisfied and safe would want one of their products (POF) to not be full of fake profiles and scammers and thieves. Since someone from Match.com is probably reading this...how does your board of directors not discuss how to improve this app? Oh and by the way, your other prize property, Tinder, isn’t much different. They may be cash cows, but your responsibility is to keep your customers safe and produce a product that is not full of fakes, scammers, catfish, thieves, sugar babies and prostitutes. To allow scammers to thrive makes you a scam as well.
Be nice now...
by 109lee on 2019/09/18 15:13
Hi I am been booted off two times already. I am respectful to whomever I meet and I have tasteful pics. You have sent me emails one saying I am inappropriate and the other email apologizing that you made a mistake and deleted me and your sorry. Please don’t keep doing this to me as I am still searching for my person. I do however thank you for not deleting me as you said you would delete me if you see me sign up again thank you Lisa:)
Waste of time
by its ok!!!!!!!222 on 2019/09/18 14:57
This is a joke!! I spent time making my profile just for it to say I never had one! This happened not once but three different times!! Finally I just gave up!! Don’t waste your time on this app!
Won’t let me sign back in even with the actual pssw/ every time they say I’ll get emailed never came
by Chuli_Guzman on 2019/09/18 14:54
I made an account today and after I did the chemistry test, it wouldn’t load so I turned my phone off then back on. Getting back on it kept saying my password was wrong, yet I had the password on my phone. So I requested a password do over and never receive an email. Made another account and same thing happened!!!
Murderers
by BEYONCEiSTAN on 2019/09/18 13:37
So many women have been murdered due to predatory men lurking in this app. I don’t know how to feel about it.
Cam girls galore!
by 90supernova on 2019/09/18 13:30
This site is over ran by cam girls, you know the ones that try to get you to their cam site so you can watch them be naughty on camera
Wish I was giving more stars
by Jake_A_1989 on 2019/09/18 12:42
I like the layout of this app and how it works, but I get about 5-10 notifications from bots a day. It’s insane, and I don’t pay attention to the app at all because of how obnoxious the spam is, even though I have actually met some decent people on here. There are a lot of options for dating apps and the spam issue in POF is more than enough to rule it out. I would recommend almost any other option until they sort whatever they have going on out.
Login in issue
by shelz💋 on 2019/09/18 11:11
Had account a day log me out saying my credentials invalid tried to reset never email with a link there no support or customer service to help you no other way to reset it so never tried it out
Upset
by Masterstylz on 2019/09/18 10:56
They took my account for no reason, just all of a sudden woke up and my credentials aren’t valid but I auto sign in with my iPhone. The new account won’t let me add the same pic, and it’s blurry. I’m upset.
Fake profiles.

This site is chock full of spammers, scammers, and other ne’er-do-wells. You’re better off just hitting up local bars.
The sounds!!!! Make it stop
by lovethis2003 on 2019/09/18 10:11
What on earth are the new sounds with the update? I can not figure out how to turn them off. Nothing like going to check a message while around people and loud obnoxious sounds (some type of cheering) coming from your phone 🤬
Everytime I go into the app I gotta put my password
by missbhadie97 on 2019/09/18 09:24
When I put my password it says incorrect like ik what password I put 😪 gonna delete it 💯✌🏼 I'm not gonna keep on making a new account
Can’t log in
by Ranae00123 on 2019/09/18 09:14
I literally just downloaded this and it logged me out. I can’t get back in and it won’t send me a reset password.
Every match is a bot
by plenty of bots on 2019/09/18 07:58
I’ve had this app for several years. I wanted to wait to give it a fair review, because online dating is not a linear experience. I’ve met one real human being in person, and she admitted she was only on the app to troll guys. Every single other match I’ve ever gotten on this app has been a bot, or a sex worker, or a bot selling a sex workers website. They typically tell you to text them or add them on a third-party app. A lot of them use the same handful of girls as their profile pictures. This app is horrendous. I’ve never paid for the membership, and likely never will. If the real matches are hidden behind an absurd paywall, and you feed all the free users this nonsense, you are not interested in matching people at all. I am very disappointed. The app has so much promise and the developers have let it gone to hell. I will give more stars when I stop getting bots and apex workers.
App is broken, and website appears to be as well
by ElgrinFau on 2019/09/18 07:34
Tried signing in on both the app and the website, but it gives me a password not recognized error. I reset my password, and I still get the error. I tried to make a new account, and receive the following message: “Your username is only allowed to have letters A through Z, underscore (_), certain accented characters, and numbers 0 through 9. No spaces or other characters are allowed.” I’m not using any of those! I even tried removing capitalization from my username and password, which had no effect. I tried checking the help section and all it suggests is to check to make sure you have the latest version of the app (I do). No further advice or opinions given. Do yourself a favor and move on to the next dating app folks. This one is dead currently and maybe dead permanently given how utterly broken it is.
Plenty Of Prostitutes
by xriz1 on 2019/09/18 06:32
This is literally the worst fffffing app I’ve been on! They should really verify the people that get on here more better On it for a whole day Got plenty of bites but they were all soliciting prostitution or asking for credit card info And it’s lame because I actually paid for the subscription 😡 Worst fuqing experience
Dissatisfied
by RealTrillKhalil on 2019/09/18 06:05
I used to like this app a long time ago. I don’t like how you can only message certain ppl with premium accounts. Most un premium accounts are bots and a complete waste of time. This app would be much appreciated if you can do exactly what the app is intended for. If any bots and accounts with no profile pictures were removed I’d be a lot happier with this app.
Don’t bother
by Alitrek on 2019/09/18 05:06
It’s so glitchy I couldn’t use it for more than 2 minutes without it kicking me out, making changes on its own, or telling me my profile was somehow set to private. Every time I tried to change things back, it would kick me out or not save the changes. And it suddenly refused to acknowledge my login credentials twice. (Password was correct. Made sure to screenshot). There is no help from the developers and the App is absolute trash.
Too many scammers and fake profiles
by chapstickmom on 2019/09/18 04:43
Because it is free every scammer and creep has an account. Be very aware of personal safety on here. Better to go to a paying site where everyone at least has $100 to pay for a membership.
To many rules just to sign up
by shunshe on 2019/09/18 04:37
I personally don’t think that it’s even wroth signings up for they delete your account for any lil thing geesh 🙄 What does it matter if your married or wanna be discreet or talk about sex in your first email 🙄This is an adult site right? To many rules just to chat and met someone

The new graphics make my eyes hurt! Like what are y’all trying to do? Hypnosis or what!? Please change it back or give users the ability to shut it off? Other than that, I have no complaints.
Ugh
by Bambi323 on 2019/09/18 00:32
The guys on this app are tools and only looking for a hookup. I’m getting hit on by women when it clearly stays I’m looking to date a man. Too many emails from men and women looking to date in an open marriage or couples looking for a third party. Sooooo many fake profiles. I get invited to events I never signed my email up for. Needs to be a better way of filtering people.

by sierra2121 on 2019/09/17 22:17
I downloaded app, the next day I was not able to login or recover a password that would allow me to login on my newly created account. Lucky I only download one photo. This app is bootleg or easily hacked because the welcome email came back as unknown. Don’t use this BS. If the maker of this app reads this delete my one photo my account ASAP !!!

Not sure if I have a profile
by La20201 on 2019/09/17 20:38
Made a profile and was using the website then all of a sudden started glitching. Logged me out and when I try to sign in says my login is incorrect and will not reset password. So I assume it somehow deleted my profile but I feel uncomfortable not knowing since I uploaded pics. I hope this gets fixed been happening the last 3 days.
The new colors are terrible
by BennyBlades44 on 2019/09/17 18:37
This app sucked before now it’s 10x worse. The colors are all neon and it’s painful to look at. Whoever redesigned that crap should be fired. Deleting.
🤷🏾‍♂️
by floydboy82 on 2019/09/17 17:51

Worst App Ever
by TfIsGoingOn on 2019/09/17 16:37
It’s terrible it logs me out by itself and then went I enter my login information it says its wrong when I know it’s right and then ill try to reset it but it NEVER sends the email to my address I’m just over the whole app it’s a waste

Absolutely terrible app, I signed up and I receive requests from fake profiles several times an hour, I literally received 5 requests within 5 mins upon signing in. And I received messages from fake profiles attempting to steal my info, just a terrible app, I wouldn’t recommend downloading this app or signing up!
A lot of fake profiles
by jake-hockey on 2019/09/17 08:30
I use this app from time to time and nothing changes I see tons of fake profiles of girls who are selling them selves to make money. I could be scrolling through and see 5 of the same profiles with different bios but all the same pics. There’s a lot of catfishes on here more than any other dating app out there.
Waste of time happy I spend money on it!
by BossLonnie121 on 2019/09/17 06:57
Now don’t get me wrong there are very few people on here that are real but it’s way too many fake accounts that need to be pulled out! Plz we are tired of the fake messages.

Depreciated over the years
by JSMommyboo on 2019/09/17 04:35
When I first started using POF back in 2016. It was fun and friendly all you had to do was make a account. Now they literally want you to pay for everything. I definitely won’t be making a new account it’s a waste of time. I wish it was like the old days where you could just chat with people , see who viewed you , see if the read your messages all for FREE. It’s like most of these dating sites now want you to pay for everything and I feel that’s so unnecessary. You might as well just go out and meet people.

It has a thorough profile builder and the features are nice. The layout is cool so not confusing. But like most, no real people interaction Edit: after using it. Horrible experience and fake profiles. Just started writing bs when I actually could. Deleted it.
Annoying
by bro._.bro on 2019/09/16 21:12
Women on here are very picky, even the fat ugly ones. Most won't reply,at all, even when being very polite. And you see they are online all day everyday. I'm far from ugly. And when you do find an alright looking, down to earth woman who seems really into you. They're fake. They start trying to get you to go to these fake websites by sending links to you. And they say they will only meet you if you fill out your credit card info in there to make sure your a real person. It really lame and they're everywhere. Free to download, but 99% of features are disabled unless you pay like $20-30 a month or something, or pay like 50 bucks for 3 months all at once. Rip off. Most of the time it only let's you see about ten words of their message when they message you. Which is really annoying because you have to keep asking them what was the end of the message again. So dumb.

Too many bots and scammers
by my mother told me on 2019/09/16 12:09
Two years later site has many naked pictures from bots and duplicate profiles. Scammers are all over the place. The names is a dead giveaway. They have 5-10 numbers behind their name. Women that do not speak back should be kicked off the site. People that haven’t logged in 30 days should be deleted. Better yet delete all and start fresh to ensure each profile is legit. The admins done gave up on fixing these issues. No password retrieval. Same old updates that doesn’t fix old issues. Why pay when it’s so many bugs. Please delete all profiles with ———In headline. Those are bots. You can do a search in database. There are also profiles missing descriptions that should be deleted. Site should start with these modifications to improve.

Scammers
by okQueen1 on 2019/09/16 03:25
It never fail when I get a message from a male, after 2-3 messages they ask for my email address or share theirs for you to contact them. They say it’s a more private way to conversate or they ask for your phone number right away. This is a red flags for me, because POF provides tools to message and video chat. When I tell them no, I prefer to wait a little longer, they don’t reply. They always use a gmail account. So what’s up with this?? It’s very frustrating

Customer Service and Support was horrifying.
by 303858 on 2019/09/15 21:59
The customer service for this company is the worst I have ever been involved with. I actual felt helpless and that I have made a huge mistake. I don’t believe I have ever written a review before. The customer service department is in India which doesn’t really matter but they just don’t care and they are very hard to understand. The call center is extremely loud. I had to call them three times and I will never call them again. It’s unfortunate that I spent $77 bucks for the premium package because it hasn’t help and it did no improve their support. If I need support again I will just stop using the app, I will never call customer support again. When I ask him why they didn’t care he told me he didn’t like my attitude and that I wouldn’t listen anyway. I ask why they didn’t care and why they wouldn’t want me as a customer renewing my premium package and buying tokens and they said it doesn’t matter POF has millions of customers. If you don’t believe me spend 5 minutes reading their customer service reviews or any reviews for that matter. They also denied my request for a refund, one day after I purchased it. Don’t waste your hard earned money. Best of luck.

Y is there music playing from this app so annoying
Can’t get it to work
by BethieeB..! on 2019/09/15 16:54
I was really disappointed in this app. For one I constantly get logged out and try to log back in and can’t because it says I have the wrong password when I know I have the right one so I have to keep getting in contact with the POF team via email for them to delete the account and make a new one. Then when I was on it it kept saying my account was private and I tried to make it public and wouldn’t do it. This app by far is the worst.

Prejudice

THIS SITE IS RACIST OR PREJUDICE ITS LETS CERTAIN PEOPLE PUT UP CAPTIONS ON THEIR PROFILE WITH NO PICTURES BUT WONT LET ME POST COMPLETELY HARMLESS SAYINGS
Disappointed
by af87! on 2019/09/15 12:45
POF is an ok dating site, wish it had better filters for matches. I always have to change the filters cause it never seems to save it. The “meet me” is useless. Nobody sends messages anyway. Everyone just uses it to troll.

It’s cool
by Royalbelle31 on 2019/09/15 07:39
It’s cool you can meet nice people. But I don’t like that you have to pay RIDICULOUS prices to see who wants too meet you or see you. Pulse it tells me that I have messages and I don’t

Fakes and spam

If you like fake profiles and spam then this is the app for you. I am deleting it even though I paid for 3 months. Total garbage.
Over 1 Year User
by Niall'sTRUEprincess on 2018/09/29 15:14
I’ve used POF for over a year, and it’s well built and I have much more success building a relationship of any kind (friendship or otherwise) with the guys I find on here. I really love this app/site. It took a year for me to have a complaint. There is no way to contact them about a personalized issue that I can find. I just want to email them asking why they removed my main picture. The bot says it didn’t show my face, but that doesn’t seem to make sense to me. I know tons of people who have memes and stuff as their main pic, mine literally just had my hair covering one of my eyes. If that breaks the rules fine, but the real issue at this point is there’s no easy to find place for users to give detailed feedback to the makers of this app/site and dispute issues. And if you’re gonna knit pick girls profile pictures, please do that with the men too. Tons of them don’t have a pic of themselves, or it’s a chest pic which isn’t allowed, or they’re taking a pic with their gun or dead deer or something expensive car they saw in a parking lot, etc. which is clearly stated against the rules, unlike hair covering one eye.
Very disappointed in new POF
by CianneMcGinnis on 2019/06/08 08:14
I have been a member of POF on and off (mostly on) for nearly 18 years. I do NOT want my chemistry details to be on my profile! You did not state that it would show and we would not have a choice when we filled it out. I thought it was only a way for you to help find the right person for us, and not that everyone would be able to see it. Why would anybody want me when they can see on that chemistry profile that I have “a problem with self-control”? Why in the world would you want to post something negative when you’re supposed to be trying to help us find someone? Your search features are lousy. I would like very much to be able to search for a man within 50 miles who is in my age range. Why can't I do that? The men that you put on my recommendation list almost never even live in my city, which was a specification I provided. Most of them are from other cities and some of them are even from other states! And when you put me on their lists, I get mail from a bunch of guys who don’t live anywhere near me and it’s a complete waste of time. I think when you put just a picture and nothing else, especially the city and state they live in, there is no way we can tell if we are interested without opening the person’s entire profile and seeing where they live. You’re having us only judge them by their looks alone, and that is not how I judge a man. What a waste of time.
The review
by romeo james on 2019/07/28 22:55
Where do I begin let’s start with your personal programs that you have added into your system with all the fake profiles the fake likes only to try to generate people to pay monies for things they don’t need like your meat meat program aside from that all of the prostitution fake profiles and your scammer profiles all from Guam and places of that sort or Ghana You also have a few people who try to put a party together for their local bar and a Call it a mixer for POF people however it’s a joke and 90% of the time it’s a sausage fest let me give me the first big reason why you put it in the slums of the city pub or a bar that has no class at all is it going to attract classy upscale nicer people people don’t want to go somewhere park the car and worry about it being broken into just to try to meet someone that you’ve never met before it isn’t worth the risk also you should have some kind a real program in there where people have to upgrade your profile at least monthly so we’re not having pictures from 10 years ago when they first joined this is just the beginning of My complaints as I’ve said in many of my messages I’ve sent to you to get people kicked off the site or even block them you should be paying me to help educate you on making your profile a true wonderful place to meet people because it’s actually more like a swap with all the fake profiles and the scamming that you yourself do as a company POF you should be ashamed of yourself
Been using the service for 1 full year now.
by The House of El on 2017/12/01 04:08
As the title says, I’ve been using the service for one full year now and even have done so as an upgraded member (which I will not be renewing my upgraded status). I admittedly commend the POF customer service people for swiftly removing bogus profiles (there’s a disgusting amount of them). However, that leads me to point out one big flaw the site has, approving obviously bogus profiles. When you make a profile you have to wait for it to be approved making sure it follows the sites terms, however, a substantial amount of profiles breaking just about every rule in their TOS flood the site regularly. What is the point of the profile approval process if they don’t thoroughly review the profiles before approving them? It’s a good thing this site has so many features for free users that are lacking on competing services such Match, because without those the site wouldn’t be worth the time or effort to wade through all the profiles with “NSA/FWB”, or “contact me on KIK!” In their bios. All that aside, the app itself runs smoothly and I’ve rarely have issues being able to get where I need to or clicking on things. It has crashed a couple times and occasionally runs slow, but those are more or less minor inconveniences. The bottom line, do give the site and app a shot as a free user cause you’ll have nothing to lose, but don’t make the mistake I did and waste your money on being an upgraded user.
Complete waste of time.
by MilGuy1990 on 2018/05/07 23:56
I have messaged people on this app for a while now and received but one reply. This reply was from a bot trying to advertise. The time spent trying to create an account (putting your heart and soul into it) so you can hopefully meet someone that you would spend the rest of your life with is a waste. If you do not subscribe for paid services, you will be trolled by the app itself with random bot accounts. You will see people who are interested and want to meet but won’t find out that these people are obvious bots. Once you find matches you will go through an endless supply of “people” logging on to say they are interested and want to meet up but, they will never respond to your messages. The messages will go unread forever. This is Weird because if they were interested and wanted to meet then, they would respond. Also, I have been added to “people’s” favorite list at least 20 times over the past two days. Once you subscribe and try to find out who these matches are that found you so interesting.....you are let down because their account was deleted or removed by POF. Seems like a scam to give the perception that someone is always looking. If you want to waste your time and money....well really....your life.....download and pay for this app. I’m not sure what the legitimacy was given by the comments previous to mine but, they are wrong. Please don’t waste your time on this app.
Sort your life out mate!
by dont87care on 2019/08/25 05:32
Most things about this site are pretty good and standard. But there are a couple of issues I think need to be addressed. I have noticed that I just cannot send certain messages, or I cannot send messages at all, to certain people. Pof should, in no way, get to decide, or even provide provisions to not allow people to just message certain people. Just like in real life, people surprise you and turn out to not be what you expected and possibly someone you turn out to be interested in. The feature that prevents you from messaging certain people because ‘you’re not what they’re looking for’ should be removed. The people responsible for controlling certain aspects of this app do not have any interest in your personal endeavors and should not restrict the parameters of those endeavors as they are not aware of anything that pertains to a reasonable decision to act on anything more than the basics. You’re not Cupid’s or match makers.. you’re a bunch of people who know software enough to have that job. Therefore none of your decisions should play into any kind of restrictions placed on me or any other user. You’re providing a service. What good is your service when it prevents people from doing what they reasonably expected they could? Not good is the answer.
An extremely outdated app
by Twooit on 2019/08/21 21:23
POF is a perfectly fine dating app. It allows you to sign up, search, message and pretty much use all aspects of the website/app entirely for free. The problem is the app hasn’t had an update in years (it’s the same app I used when I tried POF out 5-6 years ago). They may do updates for bugs but the general design looks like something out of a bygone era of geocity websites. On the website you can send any length message you want, on the app messages simply don’t send after 80ish letters, there’s no gestures for swiping back a page (the entire app is button press designed and it’s horribly dated), anyone you’ve messaged still shows in the search listing and you have no idea if you’ve ever messaged them before (this includes blocked members), the app is EXTREMELY slow (being it was optimized for an iPhone 4/5 and not current phones), the “whose online” search listing is completely inaccurate and will show members who are currently online sandwiched between members who haven’t logged on in years, the “meetme” is exclusively used my bots and blows your phone up with notifications from nonexistent users, notification settings can’t be changed in the app, etc etc etc. It’s a solid dating website that is plagued by an unbelievably outdated, unoptimized and extremely user unfriendly app.
Deleted my account and won’t be going back!!
by _Dundee_ on 2018/12/24 05:38
This site has went to pure $#!T. I deleted my account earlier tonight and I won’t be back. The # of fake profiles are astounding!! They used to REQUIRE your main photo to be a CLEAR photo of your face but that’s went by the wayside and so many women use signs, dogs, cars, scenery and all sorts of other things as their profile photo. Those women are STUPID!!! I'm a man and I've been a non-paying member for years. POF used to be a really good site, but over the past few years I have seen so many fake accounts it's not funny. Here lately I've been seeing all kinds of accounts with nude women promoting sex sites and it's disgusting. What used to be a good site has now turned to garbage. It's just a matter of time before this site loses its traffic of real people and just goes down. I have reported all the profiles I have seen and yet they are still there!! I thought profiles/photos had to be reviewed before they could show up!?!? Somewhere along the line things have changed and the ball got dropped and now you see so many fake/scam/porn profiles it's not funny. I won't pay for any personal site just because this is what seems to happen to everyone of them. I'm thinking about deleting my account due to all the fakes. The search/match feature is useless in my opinion. I put in what I'm looking for and get everything but that!!
Lesson learned, don’t even bother
by gator416609 on 2017/12/23 20:32
Been using POF for a few years now. The app works fine it’s the company that gets zero stars. 10 million active users is a lie, I’m guessing from my searches on the pc that tell you if they are online, online today, online in the last week, online within thirty days, then all the others. All the other profiles that have not logged within the last thirty days is absurd. It’s false advertising. Then the meet me feature, they send unpaid profiles, “me” emails that specially tell you who sent it. Then you go to the meet me part of the app, WOW they are either the first or second choice. You click on the meet me, another WOW you matched, ROFLMFAO, I have messaged several asking about their choice. 1 in 25 said yes, the other 24 never responded back. Now to the scammers, catfishers, prostitution, thieves, and liars. It’s just not worth the hassle. My suggestion, purge your inactive profiles, delete them, put a time limit on inactive accounts. That would not be good for advertising, that’s not going to happen. Instead they will have people like me that will no longer use their service, if asked will tell everyone to stay away. You would have more luck at a bar. I’m sure you have seen this, POF stands for plenty of fakes. That is a very true statement. I should have listened to my friends when they gave me the advice to stay away. Nobody is this lonely.
My last choice for a dating site...
by Padoodle330 on 2018/01/02 02:11
This site is full of trashy people. I used this site and app for a good amount of time, even when I dated someone for a period of months I kept my profile in tact until I felt things were more serious. Having said that, I have some time invested and this is my experience. My profile was classy and very clearly showed my intent for long term, and that I'm family oriented, yet.. -The site is full of obnoxious guys who were dishonest, fake profiles, or had plain disgusting behavior, and I constantly had to sift through this crap. -I received way too many messages from guys who were clearly looking for a hook up along with other inappropriate messages. POF doesn't seem to care that I had to deal with these jerks constantly when I'm not displaying anything to invite that kind of harassment. It is harassment and it gets old. -I finally got fed up and responded to the last jerk who asked if I wanted any D (you can figure this one out I'm sure), and I said, I wish you were dead. A week or so later POF appears to have closed my account. Wouldn't be surprised if that gross pig of a man is still active on there though. In the end, thank you POF for closing it. I signed up elsewhere and the difference in quality of people is significantly noticeable. I only regret that I didn't try other sites sooner. What a waste of a decent persons time.
Scam scam scam
by justhonest33 on 2018/09/12 03:37
This used to be a pretty good site/app I met quite a few people on here in the past. This app has changed for the worse and keeps getting worse. I never wrote a review till now because I tried on and off hoping this app would go back to the good it was. It just never happened. People scammers I mean advertise pornography, prostitution, etc. First off that’s illegal second this was and is supposed to be just a dating site. That’s disgusting this app developer does not monitor that issue and ban these false advertisers for being on this site. The only reason I give this app a two out of five stars and not one or even zero is and was because I did meet people on here. Some good some not so good meet ups/ dates but that is dating and that is how this app used to be run. Either way I’m writing this review cause I did try this site a couple of times again hoping it would go back to the way it used to be but just did not happen. Anyone real in general trying to find someone on pof chances are very slim in my opinion because there’s a lot of scammers on this app. Will they fix it? I don’t know but I will not be back or try this app ever again. Plus I did have an upgraded account that I did pay for but again I got ripped off money wise, time wise, and in general of the purpose of dating wise. I will not be back on this plenty of fish app ever again.
Scammer Central.
by Couldn'tfindaname on 2019/05/22 17:56
POF, by far, has the most FAKE PROFILES I’ve ever seen on a dating site. I’ve had to report 15 profiles in the last three days and I don’t think POF is doing anything about it. They reach out to you and send you weblinks to porn, or sometimes straight up prostitution. I made the mistake of paying for the service but will certainly it be renewing. Buyer beware. You could do better with another service. Update: Seriously, steer clear of this app. I just came back to update my review after a month of usage. I’ve had to report 22 profiles in the last 3 weeks for being fake, scammers, prostitutes looking for business, etc. I have sent several emails to POF about this, asking if they take down fake profiles and all I get back in a generic form email thanking me for reporting the issue. I checked some of the profiles I’ve reported over two weeks ago and they are still there. Also, it’s such a sausage fest, as a lot of these sites are apparently, that people don’t read your messages. I’ve spoken to women on the site that day they get so many messages, that messages they receive get buried. Even after you pay the monthly subscription, which I did, they tell you to pay more money on top of that to get your messages put to the top of the line. All in all, don’t waste your time or money on this. There’s much better ones out there.
Tech gone wrong
by Happyostrich on 2019/08/22 22:54
I’ve used a few of these, including match and okc. I’ve found pof to have more real women on it that are looking to meet and not just have a text buddy while they hang around with their cats. It does have scammers that send you links but I kept reporting and blocking those and they dropped away pretty quick. The search function doesnt usually do anything. It’s really just random. I’m looking for women above 5’10 and it just sends whatever. The app loves randomizing what you see, like every window has a line of visible women in it. These reset on their own so if you saw on in the messages window and went to the message, any women you wanted to look at would be refreshed away. Stupid programming, it can be very frustrating if you see a woman and it deletes her. Bet you’ll never see her again! It also definitely is sending me false “she wants to meet you” pings. Lol you can see on her profile she never viewed you, or she hasnt been online in a week, and women arent sitting there swiping right. I paid to meet real women and that’s fraud. In conclusion the pool of cis women looking to meet is better, but like most things now the app is rendered near useless by faith in garbage algorithms and stupid marketing strategies.
Pointless
by Nikkosa on 2019/06/07 05:50
Basically if you aren't above a 7, have a robust lifestyle, have six figure salary, and a guy.. Don’t bother.. not even just for the woman who only seek superficial relationships but pretend they have integrity by lamenting that they don't want hook ups and only want a “real man”... yet still only swipe right on 7+s and men that either blatantly lie about their life for matches or just happen to be 6 foot tall etc. oh and 95% of your matches will be fake/scam/porn profiles ... basically if it looks to good to be true.. it is.. its actually quite pathetic though how far these scammers are reaching now.... now they are impersonating below average woman to make it seem more likely they’d actually swipe right... chances are they wouldn’t because most females on these apps have unrealistic expectations/standards... but then again, whoever manages this app virtually does nothing to exemplify this issue.. Ive been matched with the same person several times.. each time with a different name.. and goes the same nearly every time.. macro intro ...” whats up” “hey” etc. you say hi... and they respond with a PHONE NUMBER... then you proceed to text them .. then they almost simultaneously send you links to camwhore sites... just don’t waste your time here boys... females on the other hand... well guess that basically goes for every dating app and site in existence
It’s actually not as bad as what I was expecting
by Rotfl123456 on 2019/08/28 19:18
So I downloaded this app because I recently moved and was looking to start dating in my area. As a female I was expecting to receive loads of sexual harassment because that’s how it normally goes but I’d have to say I’m pleasantly surprised. Most of the people on this app are serious about what they want and are able to hold mature conversations. People also will actually read your profile before messaging. There are lots of things to fill out in your profile that can help you attract better matches. There are also filters to narrow down who can message you. It’s also nice that the app only matches you to people who are nearby unlike some other apps. So far 90% of the people who messaged me have been pleasant, with only the occasional creep here and there. I already have a couple of dates lined up from this app so I’m excited to see how it goes. My only criticism is that there should be an option to seek men and women, not just one or the other, because you know, bisexual people exist.
The "SEARCH" feature could use a little tweaking
by Very very concerned gamer on 2017/10/14 01:15
Overall POF isn't too bad as far as a dating site goes. My biggest aggravation with POF however is the "Search" feature. Seems like whenever I try to narrow down my search filters to meet multiple parameters within a closer proximity, like anywhere between 5 to 50 miles, it always reverts back to 100 miles. So I can NEVER see anyone who meets my parameters near where I actually live. The "Search" feature will only let me narrow my distance parameters from where I live to 75 miles.... which to me is still a little nuts. Now I know for a FACT that some profiles MEET my expectations within the closer proximity range. I know this because I have seen them when scrolling through the pages and pages of noise. But POF wont allow the simplified search using multiple filters combo'd with a short distance to my given location. Why? Perhaps the reason it doesn't work for me is because I live in a rural area and POF's programming tries to find me more than just a handful of results. But that'd actually be better for me to view just a handful of results. I'm sure that this aggravation stretches far and wide for others who live in more rural areas as well. Please say you'll make it happen POF.
Idk what happened
by tattedhope93 on 2018/06/04 23:10
I used to love this app, it was my go-to dating app. I deleted it for awhile because I ended up getting into a relationship with someone I met from the app. The relationship ended so I decided I would give the app another try. First it wouldn’t let me use my old account because it was saying my information was, which could have been true. But I try to use the ‘forgot password’ link and after I put in my email, it says it will send me a link to reset my password and I never get an email. I check through all of my folders and spam and it’s never in there no matter how many times I request to change my password. So I just figured I’d start over with a new email address. I get logged in and my profile all set up and it’ll work for about an hour. Then I’ll go back in and it’s logged me out somehow. I try to log back in and it tells me my information is incorrect, it shouldn’t be since I just made the profile, I know what my information is, but I try to reset my password on my new account and it does the same thing. I never get an email and it won’t let me access my account. I really wish they would get whatever is happening fixed because I would like to continue using this app.
Read Please
by D33PCFSHN on 2018/04/21 10:54
This app works. A lot of spam accounts but they get deleted swiftly. Your results might be determined based upon location. I've been on more dates in 2 months than I have in two years but once again your location is a big factor. I haven't found love but I have had a lot of no strings attached interactions. Keep in mind... I used this app in a different area and this app totally sucked, but in a different location I see the power this app has. Maybe this tip will help... I google searched which states have more single women than men and moved to one of areas lol. To give you an idea of my results...in two months I've chatted with maybe 25-30 women and have actually met 9 women. If you're a single man you know these are good results. 5 of those 9 were no strings attached encounters. If you're a single man you understand these results. My personality and looks weren't compatible with a lot of the women on this app or these numbers would be way higher. Hope this review helps. Also I didn't give it 5 stars or 4 because of some of the features, there's a lot of spam, and the intentions of a lot of the women are a bit sketchy... definitely not a squeaky clean app.
The little site that could, but didn’t.
by mr12voltz1 on 2019/05/06 18:33
Unfortunately the times that we are living has been influenced by people that feel that are untitled to the top 20%. And everyone else is beneath them. SMV (sexual market place value) is being ignored and because of this there a lot of lonely people out there. If your reading this just know education doesn’t mean intelligence. There are people out there that believe that if your well educated that you will find someone as educated or more that yourself. I believe the saying is water finds its own level. Unfortunately that’s not the case. Just know a man looks for different things that a woman does and a woman looks for different things that a man does. But now women act like men and men act like women. The hole situation is upside down. There’s no more ying and yang. No more complimenting each other. It’s much more about selfishness and resource Acquisitions. Maybe one day people will see each other as the complimentary to each other. But I will continue searching for the elusive unicorn. Maybe there’re out their. But if this elusive isn’t found it will be ok. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by friends and family. I’ll never be alone.
Needs more features
by Redemption1 on 2019/04/21 20:02
The amount of fake profiles on here is utterly insane there are more of those than actual real people on here..I signed up and as I was tryna set up my profile honestly I got 25 messages within a min..all fake profiles it’s insane and whoever runs this crap app does nothing about it also One of the things this app need is more features! Like turning on or off the "who wants to meet you" half those notifications are fake people bots..almost alway...there's gotta be a way to just turn that stupid feature off..also there's gotta be a age limit..I don't wanna see 18 year olds An 50 year olds there should be a way to only see a select Age rage..and if you block someone why do you still see them on your list?...if someone blocks you or you block them they shouldn't still be on there..POF has been around for a LONG time And I'm surprised they haven't changed or added any of these features yet..they can add stupid stuff like commenting on a picture? OkCupid did that..why not copy the better features of OkCupid instead..another thing I notice Is messages aren’t going through if you send a long message it won’t send..and I been finding others who have this same problem also..been like that for a very long time An they haven’t fixed it..
Scammers
by wiseseniorlady on 2019/08/04 02:49
To all the women out there, you have to be really careful I was scammed and it was horrible it was the most humiliating embarrassing situation I’ve ever had in my life I don’t blame POF for that I blame the scammers that are out there every day looking for women any women old young fan fat ugly it doesn’t matter to them they just want to scam you they want to take your money from you they tell you they love you they can’t live without you and that’ll go on for about a month and then they start asking for money little bits at a time, And I got suckered in to $1480 he sent a companies check that was bad deposited into my account through wire money it was a week before the bank even notified me then I had to pay the bank back the biggest thing about it was there there are lots of ladies out there and men that are being scammed every day by these horrible people. I think God every day that I am off the site and not interested anymoreI hope you ladies listen to my letter I don’t blame POF but I do blame the scam that’s out there Wise senior lady
Hope taken away every time I login!
by RnB_Comma on 2018/08/03 06:46
Absolutely filled with fake accounts. Clicked on multiple profiles with the exact same bio, heading, and even water marks on photos. (Some of which ask you to upgrade your service to message, and they are fake profiles. Pretty scummy) It’s like they don’t even try to filter these profiles out. In the meet me, I’ve swiped left on multiple profiles and weeks later they are back on my recommended matches. It’s like that whole feature completely disregards your choices. There’s no way to see the last time someone has even been active unless you pay. I’ve paid for the service in the past and got nothing from it. I don’t appreciate doing that and then when I decide to try the free route, I’m being pressured into paying again. This app really only stands out because it’s one of the very few dating apps that will allow you to interact with people without paying. If it wasn’t for that alone, I don’t think this platform would really be worth the effort, or the money....also when I paid I never saw a feature to only interact with others who pay. So I either missed it, it’s only on the females side of things, or it’s a complete scam to entice people to pay. Which would be pretty bad if so.
I am not going to do it, but look at all those that are beautiful and cannot get dates, either :-)

POF is nice that it's free to reply to messages. The initial sender of the message us to pay the monthly fee. so if a person on the free account once to show interest, they view the profile of the paying customer, causing them to appear upon the who viewed me list. They might even be able to send a wink. If they are really interested, The free customer simply means to view the profile of the person they like, every day. Their face will become familiar to the pain customer, and will always be near the top of the list when the paying customer sort by date, in their viewed me. So actually, that is like real life! OK yeah that should be like four or five stars for the POF rating. I still have never gotten a day off of POF though. I am a paying customer this summer, so may have to pay for professional profile help. I spent $600 last Tuesday and $400 last night at the Gentlemens club, just for lap dances so I can hug and caress slender women. I think most of the girls on POF that actually date, date those exciting guys who don't have any money and don't have a car and probably don't have a job. Therefore it is a societal problem, not really a problem with me.
Avoid this app
by Thumbs wayyyy down on 2018/05/21 08:23
So I’ve been visiting different dating apps for a while, about half a year now, and I have to warn people. This is one of the worst I’ve come across. I’m a guy, and I can’t speak for the girls review but for the guys, about half of the female profiles are fakes, scammers or secret porn advertisements. I’ve never seen so many fake profiles before, and it’s obvious they are computer generated with similar names and intro summaries etc. anyone could pick them out. Obviously PoF doesn’t screen anyone or provide a suitable dating environment. Aside from sifting through hundreds of fake profiles, you don’t know who is real or not. I didn’t have a single message or message reply, most of the messages I sent were (unread-deleted) without anyone even viewing my profile, so I’m not sure what’s going on with that but it’s highly suspect. Also, the distance and age you place on filters is completely ignored. From my perspective I think PoF purposely adds fake profiles to boost their member numbers, and ignores filters so you gain more meetings, etc. because the number of real users is pretty low. To say the least, stay away, you won’t get anywhere or meet any real women. Literally, you have better chances with any other app out there.
Terrible customer service
by artfoundry on 2018/02/11 02:02
Been using the service for a few years, and a week ago my account got hacked (even though I never give out my login info and never click on junk email)! I can't reset my password because the hacker changed the email for my account. The help section on the web site has NO information on how to contact them. There's an email address they list to remove from your spam filter, but it's just a return address - no one answering emails, not even an auto-responder. The only legit seeming email I found was in the forums. I sent an email and got an auto response saying they were experiencing high email numbers and would get back to me as soon as they could. That was a week ago! I still don't have access to my account, and who knows what crap the hacker is doing in my name! [Update] It took a complaint to the BBB (Better Business Bureau) and waiting another month to finally get a response from these people, and all they had to say was my account was closed for violations of their terms of service. So I don't get my account back, hell I don't even know if they still have my pictures and info still on their servers! Stay away from this app unless you're ok with rolling the dice.
Land of the fake profiles
by Carol Mallier on 2019/09/02 22:35
Last time I was single I enjoyed using the Plenty of Fish (POF) website. This time around not so much. About two thirds of the profiles are not real people but rather photos stolen from somewhere on line with profiles written by poor destitute people in either West Africa or Russia. For many it’s a quick one two hustle from an introduction to them trying to get you to part with your hard earned money. Their command of the English language is pigeon English at best. All proclaim to be Engineers yet can’t construct a proper sentence. All the men are widowers with no children (I guess it’s easier if the story isn’t complicated). All and all a waste of time. I can see this site going out of business if they don’t do something soon to correct this issue. I will add paying for “premium membership” doesn’t help either unless you select the option “only responds to other premium members” in which case you will be limited to a few dozen people. I can’t help but wonder why the owners of POF don’t just invest in some better firewall protection. Dating sites are a multi million dollar business but not when those users can never actually meet real people.
Male review.
by habndyman on 2017/11/14 21:59
They do a good job for a free site. It’s like others, ladies putting up old pics and saying their recent. Some are extremely demanding cause their pretty or whatever. I have been bold faced lied to way too much but that’s what you get for free. Hint: see who’s viewed you after you viewed them first try writing them. Suggest all pics should be 2 yrs old or less as a selfie is pretty easy. When I see 10 yr old pics posted I write them n say take them down, nobody cares. They always have excuses. Look at their worst pic and that’s closest to how they look now. Usually the last pic on the right. This site should push for current pics only as were on an honor system. Try to write a few times, suggest one shorter phone call and then you will learn a lot more if you ask 2 or 3 questions, then maybe a meeting for coffee or lunch. Some are out for a free lunch only and their the liars about the pics. Ask how many meetings they have had too. Ask if they meet Mr right will they eventually move in with him. If her place is full n small then no room for you. Ask yourself if you have room too
Ok....just wow
by gosuty on 2018/11/22 17:15
Okay gentlemen, let me be frankly honest with you. If you’re thinking you’ll have a bit of luck without the natural physical traits, you might want to redirect your attention to another app or rise above that storm by jumping out there in person instead of using an app with a bunch of shallow women and spam bots polluting the app with their garbage. This app used to be amazing and people actually RESPONDED!!! Now you dont get a single word from these people because either they arent interested or the bloody automatic filters is so strict and ridiculously unrealistic that the messages wont even go through and it doesnt matter how modest or clean you are. When you do get a message its only a simple “hey :)” literally you’ll probably get a crap ton of those though. Anywho It appears these people are more concerned about looks than anything else so theyll easily swipe right passed ya youre just a toy they didnt want. PoF appears to be so lazy to fix their gosh forsaken app and get rid of these sex driven robots and add insult to their app by posting other dumb robots claiming that the “user” only wants messages from a paid subscriber. Anyway if you somehow manage to get past all that and you find yourself in the 3% category of the successful people, congrats.
Customer Service and Support was horrifying.
by 303858 on 2019/09/15 21:59
The customer service for this company is the worst I have ever been involved with. I actual felt helpless and that I have made a huge mistake. I don’t believe I have ever written a review before. The customer service department is in India which doesn’t really matter but they just don’t care and they are very hard to understand. The call center is extremely loud. I had to call them three times and I will never call them again. It’s unfortunate that I spent $77 bucks for the premium package because it hasn’t help and it did no improve their support. If I need support again I will just stop using the app, I will never call customer support again. When I ask him why they didn’t care he told me he didn’t like my attitude and that I wouldn’t listen anyway. I ask why they didn’t care and why they wouldn’t want me as a customer renewing my premium package and buying tokens and they said it doesn’t matter POF has millions of customers. If you don’t believe me spend 5 minutes reading their customer service reviews or any reviews for that matter. They also denied my request for a refund, one day after I purchased it. Don’t waste your hard earned money. Best of luck.
It’s good, but...
by AlexBro201811 on 2019/06/12 21:03
The first few days I really enjoyed this app. Even without paying for the upgrade, it was fun, I could message people and I even met a few nice guys. But just today there was this jerk that got mad because I didn’t want to talk about inappropriate things with him. He reported me and got my account deleted! I didn’t do anything wrong at all! And I had this really nice guy I had been talking to. So I made a new account and it wouldn’t let me message anyone! I tried again a few hours later and it let me send like two messages then shut off my messaging again! Now I can’t message anyone, I can receive messages and it says I sent messages back, but when I go to the “sent messages” option, it shows that I didn’t. What the heck is going on? I thought maybe at a certain point you have to pay for more messages but it’s not giving me that option and I’m not sure if I do pay if I will even be able to message... please help. Is this just a glitch or is it something else?
Over rated
by Tschnepper on 2017/12/28 02:36
As a guy I find the site very dull. I am polite and am not looking to find hookups. I'm just a normal genuine nice guy. Like the kind of guy every girl on here claims they are looking for but never say hello to.. I get "ghost" pop ups saying "someone" just sent you a message. Or "so and so" want to meet you. When I open the app and check... Never any messages. My inbox is empty. My notifications is refreshed and still nothing. Girls don't message guys. The only ones that do are so scary I'm afraid they would eat me for dinner or are a fake profile and want me to click some like to some web site. So as a guy this site is very dull. All I do is vote yes or no on the meet me pictures, which only takes a second as only 5 or 7 pictures will load before going to a screen that says no more girls in my area. I live in Phoenix Arizona. I know there are more than 50 girls registered and in a 100 mile parameter. The only thing this site has that every other site doesn't do is free messaging. You get to send or read a message for free without having to pay a membership but again, as a guy... I don't get any. No replies either. I guess women now a days are scared of more than a two liner conversation.
Terrible (beware)
by Barias17 on 2017/10/25 04:34
First of all, I'd be willing to bet that all of the 5 star reviews on here are as fake as half of the accounts on here. The app itself is okay, but they want to immediately charge you for every feature that would actually get you noticed on there. If you don't pay them, your account will be "unpopular" and nobody will even get the chance to match or see you. Once you pay $20 for some "highlights" you'll get people wanting to meet you, which you then must upgrade your account to allow you to see them... this app is constantly trying to tear apart your wallet... Once you get matches, 45% of the accounts are fake catfish accounts and another 45% are nasty prostitutes trying to get you to pay them for sexual acts. The 10% chance that you do get a real person is first a hard thing to come by, but often times are way too far out of your distance because for some reason it won't let you change the distance gauge. In the end after you pay them your money, work to sort through the catfishes and hookers, you're left with a slim chance at finding someone worth any time. This app is a joke. BEWARE BEFORE GETTING TOO FAR INTO THIS APP.
Not all girls are looking for relationships and a lot of not good matches.
by Noahldavid on 2017/09/25 23:17
So I’ve had this app for a little bit and I’ve noticed that 1. There’s a lot of fake accounts asking for money or sex services. 2. Usually girls on here talk a big game and say their looking for dates and men but never actually go on dates with men or even message back. I’ve also noticed that they put some serious firepower into their profiles so that men will get there hopes up and than never response or just block you! 3. The matching system is weak and seriously outdated! You never get a true match it’s always the complete opposites that don’t have anything in common! A lot of boring girls too it’s unreal! Seriously this app is for people who have the patience and time to actually talk to people and build a profile. I’m waiting for the next big bad dating app to come out that basically makes these sites/apps change there approach towards dating and relationships.

by svetochka1993 on 2019/07/03 18:55
During 2 days I received more than 400 texts with a lot of compliments. It was exited to read how all of this men admired of me. Than I noticed all their profiles are similar- every man is very handsome with high salaries ( doctors, pilots, executives from oil companies), almost every man is widower with history of long care of deadly sick wife and than rising by himself a little daughter who is now in Europe with the mother of his late wife, all of them are on long business trip right now, some were born in Europe and have an accent. They want your email and phone number ( for the site credit they warning you) but their phones registered as text only. Funny how they call you - always broken connection and the accent are not from Europe but from Mid East. They like long chats on viber and soon say how they love you( after 10 min writing!). One pretends he lives in my little town near Santa Barbara ca but we can meet when he’ll “be back from California “, haha! Ladies, hope my review will be helpful and maybe some of my 400 men is real not fraud but I don’t have time and desire to check each of them. Trying to unsubscribe but so far can’t even find the link. Good luck!
Got hacked and customer service is not available
by Crexlvr on 2018/10/30 01:45
I have been using POF off and on (same profile) for years and tonight I got an email that my password had been changed, so I immediately went in and changed the password. My photos were swapped out for someone else’s with different height, ethnicity and location and she had messaged more than 10 men over the past hour... when I tried to see what had been written, of course they had all blocked her, so I can only imagine. Looked all over the app for a contact us number or chat- none available. Went on the full site- still none available. Tried to use the bot- it doesn’t understand “my profile has been hacked”. Googled customer care #- it’s a message that says they don’t check messages or respond. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED in a site that 5 years ago used to actually be a pretty decent way to meet people when you are busy and don’t mess with the bar scene. Managed to delete my profile on the full site, but who knows what damage has been done. I would appreciate a reply from customer care, because this is a horrible way to run a business- not having any contact info.
Absolutely poor
by LindsGood on 2018/10/09 05:06
I’ve reported issues multiple times and nothing ever happens. When you block people, they still show up ALL OVER the place. You also can’t block someone until you message them or they message you. I can’t view my own pictures without the prompt to upgrade popping up, making it impossible to view the photo. I can delete photos, but not add them unless I upgrade. You’ll get all the notifications for “Meet Me” whether you are upgraded or not. There’s no point whatsoever in putting preferences like age or location. The app disregards it. Also, 95% of the time, it won’t load anything on the first try and give you a “No Internet Connection” message regardless of your reception. Sometimes it will give me that message for hours (sometimes a full 12 or more hours) and unable to use the app at all. I could only use it on WiFi for a couple weeks. I deleted the app and downloaded it again to try to fix the problem and now it won’t log me in. I’ve done it again and now there’s not a shortcut on my phone anywhere. If I want to use the app, I have to go to the App Store and open it from there. Just trash.
Dear POF Developers...
by Hush I'm Speaking on 2018/08/21 12:59
So I downloaded the app with great intentions and moderate expectations that this dating app would be different from the others. I was mistaken. I bought the upgraded user item as well as the “coin” perk that was suppose to make your profile “popular”. And it worked a few times, and I spoke to a few people but not enough to meet in person. However, this is not my qualm with the app. After spending about $60 dollars on coins, my pictures from my profile automatically delete. “How Sway?” So I made sure I had the latest update for the app, deleted the app, downloaded again. ...And to no avail, I’m still not able to upload any pictures to my profile. I just continued to get a glitch about the network, and it’s not my phone network because all of my other social media apps work just fine. So my message to the developers of this app, and as a user who pretty much fully invested “coins” into this app. Get it together, please. There is no way that I should experience technical glitches with the amount of money I used to keep my profile afloat. I’m just saying. Respectfully, unsubscribed user. Thank you.
This site is a scam
by IhateZenPlanner on 2018/08/15 10:34
Don't be fooled by this app! They have a bunch of "members", many of which seem too good to be true - they usually are. A lot of fake profiles, people that look nothing like their pictures and guys who just want to be pen pals and never meet or who are just looking for quick hook-ups. Not to mention the other side of the POF member pool who are looking to get married and have babies like yesterday, maybe that's your cup of tea, but it weirded me out. The cherry on top is the almost non-existent customer support group. They take forever to respond, and their emails typically aren't very helpful. Be careful trying to call them, you're likely to reach a scam group located overseas that will try to install malware on you phone or laptop. Last, but not least, if you're a non-paying member, expect to have your account deleted every couple of weeks. They say that your profile was flagged by their algorithm, but it's really just their way of irritating you into upgrading your membership to paid services. Save yourself some frustration and try another app...or better yet, go out with friends and try and meet someone the old fashion way.
Dreaming of a better way
by wildingbugatoutlookcom on 2018/01/19 01:12
In this day and age, with the millions spent on dating sites, why can’t anyone build an algorithm that comes even close to matching people. Why does POF and other so called free dating sites call them self free when clearly their not. I’ve paid for dating site and tried so called free one but the only matching was location, age and gender.... nothing else even came close. Now I say something about the females I’ve received messages from, do you read my profile? I’m very clear and detailed on who I am and what I’m looking for, my profile unlike most is long and detailed and yet I get occasionally but not often a message sent to me saying nothing but “hi” , a few words more than hi would be great, I answer although and it never goes anywhere because we’re a million miles apart in a match but if they had read my profile the would have know that. I’m trying to be hopeful, trying to be open and dreaming of the day I find that special women.... Hi. Lol
Impersonated , No Help From Team
by Reid_my_hips on 2018/06/03 19:27
One night about a month ago I started receiving text messages from men saying we’d matched on POF and they’d seen my number on my profile and decided to text me. Problem is , I didn’t have a PoF. I asked the men to send me a screenshot of the profile , only two were able to do so because by the time the others had gone back , the page had been deleted. Someone made a fake page , used one of my pictures, and put my real phone number on the page. I tried to figure out who it was but couldn’t because the page was taken down. I tried to file a complaint with PoF but couldn’t without creating a profile. So I did so. I’ve sent in THREE inquiries about the fake profile so that I may be able to press charges against whom ever felt it necessary to put my personal information out there, but I’ve received no word back at all from the customer service team. That is ridiculous. All I want to do is get this information so that this person who violated me and my privacy can be punished. PLEASE have someone from your team contact me so that I may get to the bottom of this.
Waste of time
by MacMoeller on 2018/04/21 19:44
This app is an utter waste of time almost every other profile is a fake profile. I had to deal with one person twice that made a fake profile and acted like a 16 year old girl I told them I wasn’t comfortable talking to a 16 year old and they tried to get me to talk sexually and sent me naked pictures without me asking. These people are trying to trap people for some reason I’m not sure what they are trying to gain but they act like a 16 year old girl and say they are giving their phone to their parents, then the “parents” say they are going to report you to the police if you try to call them a guy with a heavy southern accent answers and say they are going to turn you into to police I didn’t send any inappropriate pictures or ask for any I actually said I wasn’t comfortable even talking to her so his statement that he was going to the police didn’t really make sense because I didn’t do anything wrong. Basically what I’m trying to say is this app is garbage they need a better and faster way of finding out if profiles are real or not but I would suggest just don’t even waste your time with it at all
Too Many Scammers.
by littlecreek21 on 2017/12/26 08:42
I get almost daily emails from women that state their age to be between 50 and 70 but their pics are of 20 or 30 somethings. Then their profiles are almost word for word the same. Bad use of words and broken English. They immediately request a phone number yo text. I've gone along with a couple of them and within 5 or 6 texts they're asking for money. Under my weekly matches there are rarely women that even come close to what I'm looking for. Under Want To Meet Me, well they rarely requested to meet me. POF made the request not them. Most of the women that are shown to me are from quite a ways away although my search states a max of 100 miles away. I'd say that 90% of the women that I contact don't answer back. They put their profile up and some almost beg for responses but if my profile doesn't fit their mold they don't answer. To me that's downright RUDE. And most of the women that do contact me do it with two words. HEY THERE, yet they want you to write them an essay......just for them not to answer. With all of that said I have been on a few dates from this site but haven't met my soulmate yet.
POF randomly deleted me!
by dmdpickle2 on 2019/08/31 11:40
I joined POF a week ago, had some nice pictures of me and my parents posted. I’m a professional, kind and pretty woman looking to get back into the dating world again after loosing both my parents last year, whom I took care of for 6 years. I was inundated with over 100 messages, and could not keep up with replying to all. So, I hid my profile for a few days, so I could catch up, and reply to each of them. I think that is the courteous thing to do. Then, I just found out my brother in law has stage 4 cancer, so I left town immediately to be with family. My profile was obviously still going to be hidden during that time. But, when I went to go back to my messages, and continue communicating with the men I liked, my profile was completely gone and deleted! I contacted customer care two times, but they never replied to me. I followed all the guidelines, am single and did nothing wrong. I was kind and respectful in all my messages. So, I’m pretty upset with POF, because after 6 years of taking care of my parents, I’m ready to date. Or was, until POF deleted my chances.
Tons of spam
by ChillOreo on 2019/05/27 05:34
I’ve owned a smartphone for over a decade and this is the first time I’ve ever left a review, positive or negative. With this app, I felt motivated to leave a review simply because of how atrocious it is. If anyone reads this, please know that your experience is likely to be filled with a plethora of spam, bots, and what not. Within seconds of me completing my profile, I was messaged immediately asking for me to send someone money or to visit their “naughty website.” It’s very obvious when you’re connected to bots, and if the whole point of your app is to connect humans to other humans, what’s the point? It’s the same thing over-and-over. You’re messaged by someone, it turns out to be spam, and repeat. This is bad because by time you spend 10 minutes on this app, your inbox will be filled with so much spam that real messages from real people are drowned out. The funny thing is that they use this google picture thing to combat bots but they still run wild. In all honesty, I’m positive I didn’t interact with any actual human being during my time with the app. This app is not good and there’s better alternatives.
Hacked
by Jozy1300 on 2018/12/09 13:31
I made a first time profile the other day and within thirty minutes my account was hacked and my login email was changed. When it kept telling me my password was wrong I thought it was strange and when I requested a reset email and never received it I was even more alarmed. I wrote to customer service who informed me my email was no longer associated with the profile I had just made. It has now since been over twenty-four hours and all POF has sent me is canned responses about high email volume when all I’m trying to do is confirm the profile that was stolen from me is no longer active. They also say if you’re an upgraded user to email them again and tell them and you’ll get priority. So I guess the people who can’t afford to pay don’t deserve customer service at all. They have zero cares about your safety and the safety of your information as a customer. I can’t even get a confirmation that this now bogus profile has been removed. A hacker could be using my profile and likeness to do irreparable damage and it’s been over 24 hours with zero response. Horrible!
Happy 😊😊
by AmorBlue on 2019/02/08 03:55
I wasn’t on POF long, because this was where me and my boyfriend met. He messaged me the day after i made the app and we talked and got to know each other better. When we met in person it was like we knew each other our entire life, it was amazing. I had a few weird messages here and there and i also had to block people that messaged me over and over after not replying to them, but that’s something that can happen on more than POF. I loved the fact that people could message you without both of you ‘matching’ with each other, because sometimes you either over look someone that might be a great person to get to know by mistakenly swiping the wrong way. I would recommend this app! I no longer have it on my phone, but just thought that i would confirm that it is possible to find love through this app!
Stinks
by country75boy on 2018/08/23 00:50
The app freezes up a lot and takes a long time to load. Very annoying. No other dating app I use does that. There is also a lot of fake profiles with people trying to get you to give out your email to hook up for paid sex. It’s supposed to be an app to meet and date which a lot of people don’t use it that way. Just fake people trying to get money. You block them and report them and more pop up everyday. Then the app changes to a new look which I liked a lot and a week later it changes back to the old look when I open it up. No updates to cause this to happen. The most annoying thing is the loading. Sometimes it’s takes 3 to 5 minutes to freaking load. Other times I wait 10 to 15 minutes and end up closing the app or sometimes it says no internet connection when I do have connection. The app is stupid. I know very well others have this problem. So why hadn’t this been fixed? Sometimes the app won’t work at all and I have to delete it and redownload just to get it to load. Very annoying cause it’s everyday this happens.
Too Regulated
by Fateless on 2018/11/08 13:54
I really and truly don’t like dating sites and apps that try to confine the age search criteria. I find it extremely conformist and confining. I understand that people are more likely to match with others who are their own age, but that still doesn’t change the fact that there is a large percent of exceptions to that pattern. Some middle aged people stay fairly naive and innocent and in-shape, and some young adults are extremely mature and experienced for their age. If you put them together they often make the perfect couple. But sites like POF want to completely prevent that from happening by restricting your age criteria to only 13 years. It’s extremely shallow and doesn’t help at all, so I rarely use them. Perhaps there were too many shallow and simpleminded people complaining about mixing with age groups they aren’t interested in, but confining everyone as a result is no solution. If people don’t like seeing other age groups in their feed, they should be able to change that in their settings, not regulate what others can or cannot do. This is NOT a solution, POF, it’s a problem.
90% fake profiles
by elguapo1911 on 2019/08/25 18:29
I have joined four of the major dating apps. While they all have occasional fake profiles, This site is inundated with fake profiles! Literally eight out of 10 are complete BS. There’s pictures of girls that can’t possibly be over 20 and the age says 59. Always short canned answers if you click on the message. The replies to any sort of drill down question don’t even match the question. They want to get you on a cam so that they can get you over to an adult website. And this site makes it extremely difficult to get rid of them out of your profile which makes it hard to find actual real human beings. And if you try to report one you have to write a message over a certain amount of characters or it won’t take the report which is just another way to slow down reporting fake profiles. The reason they’re OK with fake profiles is it makes it look like they have more people on their website then they do. I signed up for three months that I can’t get out of and I’ve already canceled it from being renewed. Move on to one of the other sites.

DONT NOT USE
by mr.jwet on 2019/09/19 06:26
Worst dating app ever . Fake profiles & just wants money
Easy to navigate, lots of followers !!
by Islandinsc on 2019/09/19 06:12
Easy to use. I recommend it over the others that charge you see the same people on both.
New update is not good
by Ashley aka Southern Queen on 2019/09/19 06:01
Since the new update I have been having issues with the app. When you open a message or the app it sounds like noises in the background like as if I am watching a video and then it goes away. I’m not sure what’s going on but it only happened when the app was updated.
Help

Scam central
by dont trust to easily on 2019/09/19 04:34
I met a few guys on here but for the most part I was scammed by 2 “different” men. One of which I had my local police dept involved. The other I got scammed out of a lot of money. I wouldn’t trust this website. Beware ladies.

glitchy
by nythescienceguy on 2019/09/19 03:20
for some reason i can never log back into my account and when i try to use a recovery email it doesn’t work. i made a second account trying to see if this was just a glitch it did the same thing. Also the app was glitching and wouldn’t let me send people messages/would delete messages. They need to fix this.
Ridiculous
by Dmoney1525 on 2019/09/19 03:13
My profile was deleted several times. I broke no rules and did nothing wrong. Just magically disappeared with no reason.

Profile vanished TWICE!!! Don’t do it!
by Jag340 on 2019/09/19 02:11
So disgusted! Created my entire profile and about a half hour later my account locked up. When I tried to log back in it said wrong credentials. I figured maybe it was user error. No response when I requested an email for password reset. Went through all the trouble of recreating the profile ughhh and it happened AGAIN!!! VERY aggravated that my profile could very well still be active and I have no control. Will never recommend it to anyone!
Waste of time
by topekachu on 2019/09/19 00:43
I spent real thought and time putting my profile together and I got banned 18 min into talking with someone with no moderator oversight. There is no way to challenge the ban. All my pictures were appropriate and I was talking about my favorite Disney princess. I don’t understand how this is acceptable practice.

Price package
by mallymal223 on 2019/09/18 17:45
The price are ridiculous, you can’t buy separate months. You have buy packages, which is well over 30+ spending at one time.
Absurd redesign is the last straw.
by Santa Cruz Uber pro on 2019/09/18 17:12
Last night I canceled my premier membership. This ridiculous redesign is the last straw. Do you actually employee professional web developers? One of the first things you learn is to use as little bright white as possible on the screen. Your white backgrounds along with the neon colors make the images harder to see, the text harder to read, and wash out all of the photos. It’s like somebody driving towards you at night with their highbeams on. You can’t see anything else. The entire team that was responsible for this redesign should be downsized and put on the janitorial staff. It’s bad enough that you cannot control the fakes, scammers and frauds that constantly create false profiles. But to turn the user interface into a neon cartoon was, like I said, the last straw. You have lost my business.
POF owner Match.com - update is lipstick on a pig
by PJTG1 on 2019/09/18 15:57
Latest update is nothing more than lipstick on a pig and the pig is POF. POF is owned by Match.com (NASDAQ: MTCH) and is worth over $5,000,000,000 and their stock price is near All-Time Highs. It would seem that a multi-billion dollar company with a reputation to uphold and customers to keep satisfied and safe would want one of their products (POF) to not be full of fake profiles and scammers and thieves. Since someone from Match.com is probably reading this...how does your board of directors not discuss how to improve this app? Oh and by the way, your other prize property, Tinder, isn’t much different. They may be cash cows, but your responsibility is to keep your customers safe and produce a product that is not full of fakes, scammers, catfish, thieves, sugar babies and prostitutes. To allow scammers to thrive makes you a scam as well.
Be nice now...
by 109lee on 2019/09/18 15:13
Hi I am been booted off two times already. I am respectful to whomever I meet and I have tasteful pics. You have sent me emails one saying I am inappropriate and the other email apologizing that you made a mistake and deleted me and your sorry. Please don’t keep doing this to me as I am still searching for my person. I do however thank you for not deleting me as you said you would delete me if you see me sign up again thank you Lisa:)
Waste of time
by its ok!!!!!!!222 on 2019/09/18 14:57
This is a joke!! I spent time making my profile just for it to say I never had one! This happened not once but three different times!! Finally I just gave up!! Don’t waste your time on this app!
Won’t let me sign back in even with the actual pssw/ every time they say I’ll get emailed never came
by Chuli_Guzman on 2019/09/18 14:54
I made an account today and after I did the chemistry test, it wouldn’t load so I turned my phone off then back on. Getting back on it kept saying my password was wrong, yet I had the password on my phone. So I requested a password do over and never receive an email. Made another account and same thing happened!!!
Murderers
by BEYONCEiSTAN on 2019/09/18 13:37
So many women have been murdered due to predatory men lurking in this app. I don’t know how to feel about it.
Cam girls galore!
by 90supernova on 2019/09/18 13:30
This site is over ran by cam girls, you know the ones that try to get you to their cam site so you can watch them be naughty on camera
Wish I was giving more stars
by Jake_A_1989 on 2019/09/18 12:42
I like the layout of this app and how it works, but I get about 5-10 notifications from bots a day. It’s insane, and I don’t pay attention to the app at all because of how obnoxious the spam is, even though I have actually met some decent people on here. There are a lot of options for dating apps and the spam issue in POF is more than enough to rule it out. I would recommend almost any other option until they sort whatever they have going on out.
Login in issue
by shelz💋 on 2019/09/18 11:11
Had account a day log me out saying my credentials invalid tried to reset never email with a link there no support or customer service to help you no other way to reset it so never tried it out
Upset
by Masterstylz on 2019/09/18 10:56
They took my account for no reason, just all of a sudden woke up and my credentials aren’t valid but I auto sign in with my iPhone. The new account won’t let me add the same pic, and it’s blurry. I’m upset.
Fake profiles.

This site is chock full of spammers, scammers, and other ne’er-do-wells. You’re better off just hitting up local bars.
The sounds!!!! Make it stop
by lovethis2003 on 2019/09/18 10:11
What on earth are the new sounds with the update? I can not figure out how to turn them off. Nothing like going to check a message while around people and loud obnoxious sounds (some type of cheering) coming from your phone 🤬
Everytime I go into the app I gotta put my password
by missbhadie97 on 2019/09/18 09:24
When I put my password it says incorrect like ik what password I put 😪 gonna delete it 💯✌🏼 I'm not gonna keep on making a new account
Can’t log in
by Ranae00123 on 2019/09/18 09:14
I literally just downloaded this and it logged me out. I can’t get back in and it won’t send me a reset password.
Every match is a bot
by plenty of bots on 2019/09/18 07:58
I’ve had this app for several years. I wanted to wait to give it a fair review, because online dating is not a linear experience. I’ve met one real human being in person, and she admitted she was only on the app to troll guys. Every single other match I’ve ever gotten on this app has been a bot, or a sex worker, or a bot selling a sex workers website. They typically tell you to text them or add them on a third-party app. A lot of them use the same handful of girls as their profile pictures. This app is horrendous. I’ve never paid for the membership, and likely never will. If the real matches are hidden behind an absurd paywall, and you feed all the free users this nonsense, you are not interested in matching people at all. I am very disappointed. The app has so much promise and the developers have let it gone to hell. I will give more stars when I stop getting bots and apex workers.
App is broken, and website appears to be as well
by ElgrinFau on 2019/09/18 07:34
Tried signing in on both the app and the website, but it gives me a password not recognized error. I reset my password, and I still get the error. I tried to make a new account, and receive the following message: “Your username is only allowed to have letters A through Z, underscore (_), certain accented characters, and numbers 0 through 9. No spaces or other characters are allowed.” I’m not using any of those! I even tried removing capitalization from my username and password, which had no effect. I tried checking the help section and all it suggests is to check to make sure you have the latest version of the app (I do). No further advice or opinions given. Do yourself a favor and move on to the next dating app folks. This one is dead currently and maybe dead permanently given how utterly broken it is.
Plenty Of Prostitutes
by xriz1 on 2019/09/18 06:32
This is literally the worst fffffing app I’ve been on! They should really verify the people that get on here more better On it for a whole day Got plenty of bites but they were all soliciting prostitution or asking for credit card info And it’s lame because I actually paid for the subscription 😡 Worst fuqing experience
Dissatisfied
by RealTrillKhalil on 2019/09/18 06:05
I used to like this app a long time ago. I don’t like how you can only message certain ppl with premium accounts. Most un premium accounts are bots and a complete waste of time. This app would be much appreciated if you can do exactly what the app is intended for. If any bots and accounts with no profile pictures were removed I’d be a lot happier with this app.
Don’t bother
by Alitrek on 2019/09/18 05:06
It’s so glitchy I couldn’t use it for more than 2 minutes without it kicking me out, making changes on its own, or telling me my profile was somehow set to private. Every time I tried to change things back, it would kick me out or not save the changes. And it suddenly refused to acknowledge my login credentials twice. (Password was correct. Made sure to screenshot). There is no help from the developers and the App is absolute trash.
Too many scammers and fake profiles
by chapstickmom on 2019/09/18 04:43
Because it is free every scammer and creep has an account. Be very aware of personal safety on here. Better to go to a paying site where everyone at least has $100 to pay for a membership.
To many rules just to sign up
by shunshe on 2019/09/18 04:37
I personally don’t think that it’s even wroth signings up for they delete your account for any lil thing geesh 🙄 What does it matter if your married or wanna be discreet or talk about sex in your first email 🙄This is an adult site right? To many rules just to chat and met someone

The new graphics make my eyes hurt! Like what are y’all trying to do? Hypnosis or what!? Please change it back or give users the ability to shut it off? Other than that, I have no complaints.
Ugh
by Bambi323 on 2019/09/18 00:32
The guys on this app are tools and only looking for a hookup. I’m getting hit on by women when it clearly stays I’m looking to date a man. Too many emails from men and women looking to date in an open marriage or couples looking for a third party. Sooooo many fake profiles. I get invited to events I never signed my email up for. Needs to be a better way of filtering people.

by sierra2121 on 2019/09/17 22:17
I downloaded app, the next day I was not able to login or recover a password that would allow me to login on my newly created account. Lucky I only download one photo. This app is bootleg or easily hacked because the welcome email came back as unknown. Don’t use this BS. If the maker of this app reads this delete my one photo my account ASAP !!!

Not sure if I have a profile
by La20201 on 2019/09/17 20:38
Made a profile and was using the website then all of a sudden started glitching. Logged me out and when I try to sign in says my login is incorrect and will not reset password. So I assume it somehow deleted my profile but I feel uncomfortable not knowing since I uploaded pics. I hope this gets fixed been happening the last 3 days.
The new colors are terrible
by BennyBlades44 on 2019/09/17 18:37
This app sucked before now it’s 10x worse. The colors are all neon and it’s painful to look at. Whoever redesigned that crap should be fired. Deleting.

by floydboy82 on 2019/09/17 17:51

Worst App Ever
by TfIsGoingOn on 2019/09/17 16:37

Absolutely terrible app, I signed up and I receive requests from fake profiles several times an hour, I literally received 5 requests within 5 mins upon signing in. And I received messages from fake profiles attempting to steal my info, just a terrible app, I wouldn’t recommend downloading this app or signing up!
A lot of fake profiles
by jake-hockey on 2019/09/17 08:30
I use this app from time to time and nothing changes I see tons of fake profiles of girls who are selling them selves to make money. I could be scrolling through and see 5 of the same profiles with different bios but all the same pics. There’s a lot of catfishes on here more than any other dating app out there.
Waste of time happy I spend money on it!
by BossLonnie121 on 2019/09/17 06:57
Now don’t get me wrong there are very few people on here that are real but it’s way too many fake accounts that need to be pulled out! Plz we are tired of the fake messages.

Depreciated over the years
by JSMommyboo on 2019/09/17 04:35
When I first started using POF back in 2016. It was fun and friendly all you had to do was make a account. Now they literally want you to pay for everything. I definitely won’t be making a new account it’s a waste of time. I wish it was like the old days where you could just chat with people , see who viewed you , see if the read your messages all for FREE. It’s like most of these dating sites now want you to pay for everything and I feel that’s so unnecessary. You might as well just go out and meet people.

by Fdjo14 on 2019/09/17 00:40
It has a thorough profile builder and the features are nice. The layout is cool so not confusing. But like most, no real people interaction Edit: after using it. Horrible experience and fake profiles. Just started writing bs when I actually could. Deleted it.
Annoying
by bro._.bro on 2019/09/16 21:12
Women on here are very picky, even the fat ugly ones. Most won't reply,at all, even when being very polite. And you see they are online all day everyday. I'm far from ugly. And when you do find an alright looking, down to earth woman who seems really into you. They're fake. They start trying to get you to go to these fake websites by sending links to you. And they say they will only meet you if you fill out your credit card info in there to make sure your a real person. It really lame and they're everywhere. Free to download, but 99% of features are disabled unless you pay like $20-30 a month or something, or pay like 50 bucks for 3 months all at once. Rip off. Most of the time it only let's you see about ten words of their message when they message you. Which is really annoying because you have to keep asking them what was the end of the message again. So dumb.

Too many bots and scammers
by my mother told me on 2019/09/16 12:09
Two years later site has many naked pictures from bots and duplicate profiles. Scammers are all over the place. The names is a dead giveaway. They have 5-10 numbers behind their name. Women that do not speak back should be kicked off the site. People that haven’t logged in 30 days should be deleted. Better yet delete all and start fresh to ensure each profile is legit. The admins done gave up on fixing these issues. No password retrieval. Same old updates that doesn’t fix old issues. Why pay when it’s so many bugs. Please delete all profiles with ———In headline. Those are bots. You can do a search in database. There are also profiles missing descriptions that should be deleted. Site should start with these modifications to improve.

Scammers
by okQueen1 on 2019/09/16 03:25
It never fail when I get a message from a male, after 2-3 messages they ask for my email address or share theirs for you to contact them. They say it’s a more private way to conversate or they ask for your phone number right away. This is a red flags for me, because POF provides tools to message and video chat. When I tell them no, I prefer to wait a little longer, they don’t reply. They always use a gmail account. So what’s up with this?? It’s very frustrating

Customer Service and Support was horrifying.
by 303858 on 2019/09/15 21:59
The customer service for this company is the worst I have ever been involved with. I actual felt helpless and that I have made a huge mistake. I don’t believe I have ever written a review before. The customer service department is in India which doesn’t really matter but they just don’t care and they are very hard to understand. The call center is extremely loud. I had to call them three times and I will never call them again. It’s unfortunate that I spent $77 bucks for the premium package because it hasn’t help and it did no improve their support. If I need support again I will just stop using the app, I will never call customer support again. When I ask him why they didn’t care he told me he didn’t like my attitude and that I wouldn’t listen anyway. I ask why they didn’t care and why they wouldn’t want me as a customer renewing my premium package and buying tokens and they said it doesn’t matter POF has millions of customers. If you don’t believe me spend 5 minutes reading their customer service reviews or any reviews for that matter. They also denied my request for a refund, one day after I purchased it. Don’t waste your hard earned money. Best of luck.
A lot of FRAUD GOING ON!!!!!
by Symphonygirl on 2019/09/15 21:09
Davidrobinson10 is a FRAUD and there are several on the site. This site has no way of verifying that members are honest and are who they say they are!!

Fake profiles to boost numbers
by yeah name on 2019/09/15 20:28
Way too many fake profiles. And they got the nerve to do a text verification. They do nothing about the fake accounts either.
Stop the music!

Y is there music playing from this app so annoying
Can’t get it to work
by BethieeB..! on 2019/09/15 16:54
I was really disappointed in this app. For one I constantly get logged out and try to log back in and can’t because it says I have the wrong password when I know I have the right one so I have to keep getting in contact with the POF team via email for them to delete the account and make a new one. Then when I was on it it kept saying my account was private and I tried to make it public and wouldn’t do it. This app by far is the worst.
Don’t waste your time
by PackerGirl1110 on 2019/09/15 16:34
I have mad 4 accounts in the pas 2 flipping days. For it to sign me out and say invalid user name or password. >:( it’s never done this. But I will never use this BS app again.
Prejudice
by 3901 redneck on 2019/09/15 16:11
THIS SITE IS RACIST OR PREJUDICE ITS LETS CERTAIN PEOPLE PUT UP CAPTIONS ON THEIR PROFILE WITH NO PICTURES BUT WONT LET ME POST COMPLETELY HARMLESS SAYINGS
Disappointed
by af87! on 2019/09/15 12:45
POF is an ok dating site, wish it had better filters for matches. I always have to change the filters cause it never seems to save it. The “meet me” is useless. Nobody sends messages anyway. Everyone just uses it to troll.

It’s cool
by Royalbelle31 on 2019/09/15 07:39
It’s cool you can meet nice people. But I don’t like that you have to pay RIDICULOUS prices to see who wants too meet you or see you. Pulse it tells me that I have messages and I don’t

Over 1 Year User
by Niall'sTRUEprincess on 2018/09/29 15:14
I’ve used POF for over a year, and it’s well built and I have much more success building a relationship of any kind (friendship or otherwise) with the guys I find on here. I really love this app/site. It took a year for me to have a complaint. There is no way to contact them about a personalized issue that I can find. I just want to email them asking why they removed my main picture. The bot says it didn’t show my face, but that doesn’t seem to make sense to me. I know tons of people who have memes and stuff as their main pic, mine literally just had my hair covering one of my eyes. If that breaks the rules fine, but the real issue at this point is there’s no easy to find place for users to give detailed feedback to the makers of this app/site and dispute issues. And if you’re gonna knit pick girls profile pictures, please do that with the men too. Tons of them don’t have a pic of themselves, or it’s a chest pic which isn’t allowed, or they’re taking a pic with their gun or dead deer or something expensive car they saw in a parking lot, etc. which is clearly stated against the rules, unlike hair covering one eye.
Very disappointed in new POF
by CianneMcGinnis on 2019/06/08 08:14
I have been a member of POF on and off (mostly on) for nearly 18 years. I do NOT want my chemistry details to be on my profile! You did not state that it would show and we would not have a choice when we filled it out. I thought it was only a way for you to help find the right person for us, and not that everyone would be able to see it. Why would anybody want me when they can see on that chemistry profile that I have “a problem with self-control”? Why in the world would you want to post something negative when you’re supposed to be trying to help us find someone? Your search features are lousy. I would like very much to be able to search for a man within 50 miles who is in my age range. Why can't I do that? The men that you put on my recommendation list almost never even live in my city, which was a specification I provided. Most of them are from other cities and some of them are even from other states! And when you put me on their lists, I get mail from a bunch of guys who don’t live anywhere near me and it’s a complete waste of time. I think when you put just a picture and nothing else, especially the city and state they live in, there is no way we can tell if we are interested without opening the person’s entire profile and seeing where they live. You’re having us only judge them by their looks alone, and that is not how I judge a man. What a waste of time.
The review
by romeo james on 2019/07/28 22:55
Where do I begin let’s start with your personal programs that you have added into your system with all the fake profiles the fake likes only to try to generate people to pay monies for things they don’t need like your meat meat program aside from that all of the prostitution fake profiles and your scammer profiles all from Guam and places of that sort or Ghana You also have a few people who try to put a party together for their local bar and a Call it a mixer for POF people however it’s a joke and 90% of the time it’s a sausage fest let me give me the first big reason why you put it in the slums of the city pub or a bar that has no class at all is it going to attract classy upscale nicer people people don’t want to go somewhere park the car and worry about it being broken into just to try to meet someone that you’ve never met before it isn’t worth the risk also you should have some kind a real program in there where people have to upgrade your profile at least monthly so we’re not having pictures from 10 years ago when they first joined this is just the beginning of My complaints as I’ve said in many of my messages I’ve sent to you to get people kicked off the site or even block them you should be paying me to help educate you on making your profile a true wonderful place to meet people because it’s actually more like a swap with all the fake profiles and the scamming that you yourself do as a company POF you should be ashamed of yourself
Been using the service for 1 full year now.
by The House of El on 2017/12/01 04:08
As the title says, I’ve been using the service for one full year now and even have done so as an upgraded member (which I will not be renewing my upgraded status). I admittedly commend the POF customer service people for swiftly removing bogus profiles (there’s a disgusting amount of them). However, that leads me to point out one big flaw the site has, approving obviously bogus profiles. When you make a profile you have to wait for it to be approved making sure it follows the sites terms, however, a substantial amount of profiles breaking just about every rule in their TOS flood the site regularly. What is the point of the profile approval process if they don’t thoroughly review the profiles before approving them? It’s a good thing this site has so many features for free users that are lacking on competing services such Match, because without those the site wouldn’t be worth the time or effort to wade through all the profiles with “NSA/FWB”, or “contact me on KIK!” In their bios. All that aside, the app itself runs smoothly and I’ve rarely have issues being able to get where I need to or clicking on things. It has crashed a couple times and occasionally runs slow, but those are more or less minor inconveniences. The bottom line, do give the site and app a shot as a free user cause you’ll have nothing to lose, but don’t make the mistake I did and waste your money on being an upgraded user.
Complete waste of time.
by MilGuy1990 on 2018/05/07 23:56
I have messaged people on this app for a while now and received but one reply. This reply was from a bot trying to advertise. The time spent trying to create an account (putting your heart and soul into it) so you can hopefully meet someone that you would spend the rest of your life with is a waste. If you do not subscribe for paid services, you will be trolled by the app itself with random bot accounts. You will see people who are interested and want to meet but won’t find out that these people are obvious bots. Once you find matches you will go through an endless supply of “people” logging on to say they are interested and want to meet up but, they will never respond to your messages. The messages will go unread forever. This is Weird because if they were interested and wanted to meet then, they would respond. Also, I have been added to “people’s” favorite list at least 20 times over the past two days. Once you subscribe and try to find out who these matches are that found you so interesting.....you are let down because their account was deleted or removed by POF. Seems like a scam to give the perception that someone is always looking. If you want to waste your time and money....well really....your life.....download and pay for this app. I’m not sure what the legitimacy was given by the comments previous to mine but, they are wrong. Please don’t waste your time on this app.
Sort your life out mate!
by dont87care on 2019/08/25 05:32
Most things about this site are pretty good and standard. But there are a couple of issues I think need to be addressed. I have noticed that I just cannot send certain messages, or I cannot send messages at all, to certain people. Pof should, in no way, get to decide, or even provide provisions to not allow people to just message certain people. Just like in real life, people surprise you and turn out to not be what you expected and possibly someone you turn out to be interested in. The feature that prevents you from messaging certain people because ‘you’re not what they’re looking for’ should be removed. The people responsible for controlling certain aspects of this app do not have any interest in your personal endeavors and should not restrict the parameters of those endeavors as they are not aware of anything that pertains to a reasonable decision to act on anything more than the basics. You’re not Cupid’s or match makers.. you’re a bunch of people who know software enough to have that job. Therefore none of your decisions should play into any kind of restrictions placed on me or any other user. You’re providing a service. What good is your service when it prevents people from doing what they reasonably expected they could? Not good is the answer.
An extremely outdated app
by Twooit on 2019/08/21 21:23
POF is a perfectly fine dating app. It allows you to sign up, search, message and pretty much use all aspects of the website/app entirely for free. The problem is the app hasn’t had an update in years (it’s the same app I used when I tried POF out 5-6 years ago). They may do updates for bugs but the general design looks like something out of a bygone era of geocity websites. On the website you can send any length message you want, on the app messages simply don’t send after 80ish letters, there’s no gestures for swiping back a page (the entire app is button press designed and it’s horribly dated), anyone you’ve messaged still shows in the search listing and you have no idea if you’ve ever messaged them before (this includes blocked members), the app is EXTREMELY slow (being it was optimized for an iPhone 4/5 and not current phones), the “whose online” search listing is completely inaccurate and will show members who are currently online sandwiched between members who haven’t logged on in years, the “meetme” is exclusively used my bots and blows your phone up with notifications from nonexistent users, notification settings can’t be changed in the app, etc etc etc. It’s a solid dating website that is plagued by an unbelievably outdated, unoptimized and extremely user unfriendly app.
Deleted my account and won’t be going back!!
by _Dundee_ on 2018/12/24 05:38
This site has went to pure $#!T. I deleted my account earlier tonight and I won’t be back. The # of fake profiles are astounding!! They used to REQUIRE your main photo to be a CLEAR photo of your face but that’s went by the wayside and so many women use signs, dogs, cars, scenery and all sorts of other things as their profile photo. Those women are STUPID!!! I'm a man and I've been a non-paying member for years. POF used to be a really good site, but over the past few years I have seen so many fake accounts it's not funny. Here lately I've been seeing all kinds of accounts with nude women promoting sex sites and it's disgusting. What used to be a good site has now turned to garbage. It's just a matter of time before this site loses its traffic of real people and just goes down. I have reported all the profiles I have seen and yet they are still there!! I thought profiles/photos had to be reviewed before they could show up!?!? Somewhere along the line things have changed and the ball got dropped and now you see so many fake/scam/porn profiles it's not funny. I won't pay for any personal site just because this is what seems to happen to everyone of them. I'm thinking about deleting my account due to all the fakes. The search/match feature is useless in my opinion. I put in what I'm looking for and get everything but that!!
Lesson learned, don’t even bother
by gator416609 on 2017/12/23 20:32
Been using POF for a few years now. The app works fine it’s the company that gets zero stars. 10 million active users is a lie, I’m guessing from my searches on the pc that tell you if they are online, online today, online in the last week, online within thirty days, then all the others. All the other profiles that have not logged within the last thirty days is absurd. It’s false advertising. Then the meet me feature, they send unpaid profiles, “me” emails that specially tell you who sent it. Then you go to the meet me part of the app, WOW they are either the first or second choice. You click on the meet me, another WOW you matched, ROFLMFAO, I have messaged several asking about their choice. 1 in 25 said yes, the other 24 never responded back. Now to the scammers, catfishers, prostitution, thieves, and liars. It’s just not worth the hassle. My suggestion, purge your inactive profiles, delete them, put a time limit on inactive accounts. That would not be good for advertising, that’s not going to happen. Instead they will have people like me that will no longer use their service, if asked will tell everyone to stay away. You would have more luck at a bar. I’m sure you have seen this, POF stands for plenty of fakes. That is a very true statement. I should have listened to my friends when they gave me the advice to stay away. Nobody is this lonely.
My last choice for a dating site...
by Padoodle330 on 2018/01/02 02:11
This site is full of trashy people. I used this site and app for a good amount of time, even when I dated someone for a period of months I kept my profile in tact until I felt things were more serious. Having said that, I have some time invested and this is my experience. My profile was classy and very clearly showed my intent for long term, and that I'm family oriented, yet.. -The site is full of obnoxious guys who were dishonest, fake profiles, or had plain disgusting behavior, and I constantly had to sift through this crap. -I received way too many messages from guys who were clearly looking for a hook up along with other inappropriate messages. POF doesn't seem to care that I had to deal with these jerks constantly when I'm not displaying anything to invite that kind of harassment. It is harassment and it gets old. -I finally got fed up and responded to the last jerk who asked if I wanted any D (you can figure this one out I'm sure), and I said, I wish you were dead. A week or so later POF appears to have closed my account. Wouldn't be surprised if that gross pig of a man is still active on there though. In the end, thank you POF for closing it. I signed up elsewhere and the difference in quality of people is significantly noticeable. I only regret that I didn't try other sites sooner. What a waste of a decent persons time.
Scam scam scam
by justhonest33 on 2018/09/12 03:37
This used to be a pretty good site/app I met quite a few people on here in the past. This app has changed for the worse and keeps getting worse. I never wrote a review till now because I tried on and off hoping this app would go back to the good it was. It just never happened. People scammers I mean advertise pornography, prostitution, etc. First off that’s illegal second this was and is supposed to be just a dating site. That’s disgusting this app developer does not monitor that issue and ban these false advertisers for being on this site. The only reason I give this app a two out of five stars and not one or even zero is and was because I did meet people on here. Some good some not so good meet ups/ dates but that is dating and that is how this app used to be run. Either way I’m writing this review cause I did try this site a couple of times again hoping it would go back to the way it used to be but just did not happen. Anyone real in general trying to find someone on pof chances are very slim in my opinion because there’s a lot of scammers on this app. Will they fix it? I don’t know but I will not be back or try this app ever again. Plus I did have an upgraded account that I did pay for but again I got ripped off money wise, time wise, and in general of the purpose of dating wise. I will not be back on this plenty of fish app ever again.
Scammer Central.
by Couldn'tfindaname on 2019/05/22 17:56
POF, by far, has the most FAKE PROFILES I’ve ever seen on a dating site. I’ve had to report 15 profiles in the last three days and I don’t think POF is doing anything about it. They reach out to you and send you weblinks to porn, or sometimes straight up prostitution. I made the mistake of paying for the service but will certainly it be renewing. Buyer beware. You could do better with another service. Update: Seriously, steer clear of this app. I just came back to update my review after a month of usage. I’ve had to report 22 profiles in the last 3 weeks for being fake, scammers, prostitutes looking for business, etc. I have sent several emails to POF about this, asking if they take down fake profiles and all I get back in a generic form email thanking me for reporting the issue. I checked some of the profiles I’ve reported over two weeks ago and they are still there. Also, it’s such a sausage fest, as a lot of these sites are apparently, that people don’t read your messages. I’ve spoken to women on the site that day they get so many messages, that messages they receive get buried. Even after you pay the monthly subscription, which I did, they tell you to pay more money on top of that to get your messages put to the top of the line. All in all, don’t waste your time or money on this. There’s much better ones out there.
Tech gone wrong
by Happyostrich on 2019/08/22 22:54
I’ve used a few of these, including match and okc. I’ve found pof to have more real women on it that are looking to meet and not just have a text buddy while they hang around with their cats. It does have scammers that send you links but I kept reporting and blocking those and they dropped away pretty quick. The search function doesnt usually do anything. It’s really just random. I’m looking for women above 5’10 and it just sends whatever. The app loves randomizing what you see, like every window has a line of visible women in it. These reset on their own so if you saw on in the messages window and went to the message, any women you wanted to look at would be refreshed away. Stupid programming, it can be very frustrating if you see a woman and it deletes her. Bet you’ll never see her again! It also definitely is sending me false “she wants to meet you” pings. Lol you can see on her profile she never viewed you, or she hasnt been online in a week, and women arent sitting there swiping right. I paid to meet real women and that’s fraud. In conclusion the pool of cis women looking to meet is better, but like most things now the app is rendered near useless by faith in garbage algorithms and stupid marketing strategies.
Pointless
by Nikkosa on 2019/06/07 05:50
Basically if you aren't above a 7, have a robust lifestyle, have six figure salary, and a guy.. Don’t bother.. not even just for the woman who only seek superficial relationships but pretend they have integrity by lamenting that they don't want hook ups and only want a “real man”... yet still only swipe right on 7+s and men that either blatantly lie about their life for matches or just happen to be 6 foot tall etc. oh and 95% of your matches will be fake/scam/porn profiles ... basically if it looks to good to be true.. it is.. its actually quite pathetic though how far these scammers are reaching now.... now they are impersonating below average woman to make it seem more likely they’d actually swipe right... chances are they wouldn’t because most females on these apps have unrealistic expectations/standards... but then again, whoever manages this app virtually does nothing to exemplify this issue.. Ive been matched with the same person several times.. each time with a different name.. and goes the same nearly every time.. macro intro ...” whats up” “hey” etc. you say hi... and they respond with a PHONE NUMBER... then you proceed to text them .. then they almost simultaneously send you links to camwhore sites... just don’t waste your time here boys... females on the other hand... well guess that basically goes for every dating app and site in existence
It’s actually not as bad as what I was expecting
by Rotfl123456 on 2019/08/28 19:18
So I downloaded this app because I recently moved and was looking to start dating in my area. As a female I was expecting to receive loads of sexual harassment because that’s how it normally goes but I’d have to say I’m pleasantly surprised. Most of the people on this app are serious about what they want and are able to hold mature conversations. People also will actually read your profile before messaging. There are lots of things to fill out in your profile that can help you attract better matches. There are also filters to narrow down who can message you. It’s also nice that the app only matches you to people who are nearby unlike some other apps. So far 90% of the people who messaged me have been pleasant, with only the occasional creep here and there. I already have a couple of dates lined up from this app so I’m excited to see how it goes. My only criticism is that there should be an option to seek men and women, not just one or the other, because you know, bisexual people exist.
The "SEARCH" feature could use a little tweaking
by Very very concerned gamer on 2017/10/14 01:15
Overall POF isn't too bad as far as a dating site goes. My biggest aggravation with POF however is the "Search" feature. Seems like whenever I try to narrow down my search filters to meet multiple parameters within a closer proximity, like anywhere between 5 to 50 miles, it always reverts back to 100 miles. So I can NEVER see anyone who meets my parameters near where I actually live. The "Search" feature will only let me narrow my distance parameters from where I live to 75 miles.... which to me is still a little nuts. Now I know for a FACT that some profiles MEET my expectations within the closer proximity range. I know this because I have seen them when scrolling through the pages and pages of noise. But POF wont allow the simplified search using multiple filters combo'd with a short distance to my given location. Why? Perhaps the reason it doesn't work for me is because I live in a rural area and POF's programming tries to find me more than just a handful of results. But that'd actually be better for me to view just a handful of results. I'm sure that this aggravation stretches far and wide for others who live in more rural areas as well. Please say you'll make it happen POF.
Idk what happened
by tattedhope93 on 2018/06/04 23:10
I used to love this app, it was my go-to dating app. I deleted it for awhile because I ended up getting into a relationship with someone I met from the app. The relationship ended so I decided I would give the app another try. First it wouldn’t let me use my old account because it was saying my information was, which could have been true. But I try to use the ‘forgot password’ link and after I put in my email, it says it will send me a link to reset my password and I never get an email. I check through all of my folders and spam and it’s never in there no matter how many times I request to change my password. So I just figured I’d start over with a new email address. I get logged in and my profile all set up and it’ll work for about an hour. Then I’ll go back in and it’s logged me out somehow. I try to log back in and it tells me my information is incorrect, it shouldn’t be since I just made the profile, I know what my information is, but I try to reset my password on my new account and it does the same thing. I never get an email and it won’t let me access my account. I really wish they would get whatever is happening fixed because I would like to continue using this app.
Read Please
by D33PCFSHN on 2018/04/21 10:54
This app works. A lot of spam accounts but they get deleted swiftly. Your results might be determined based upon location. I've been on more dates in 2 months than I have in two years but once again your location is a big factor. I haven't found love but I have had a lot of no strings attached interactions. Keep in mind... I used this app in a different area and this app totally sucked, but in a different location I see the power this app has. Maybe this tip will help... I google searched which states have more single women than men and moved to one of areas lol. To give you an idea of my results...in two months I've chatted with maybe 25-30 women and have actually met 9 women. If you're a single man you know these are good results. 5 of those 9 were no strings attached encounters. If you're a single man you understand these results. My personality and looks weren't compatible with a lot of the women on this app or these numbers would be way higher. Hope this review helps. Also I didn't give it 5 stars or 4 because of some of the features, there's a lot of spam, and the intentions of a lot of the women are a bit sketchy... definitely not a squeaky clean app.
The little site that could, but didn’t.
by mr12voltz1 on 2019/05/06 18:33
Unfortunately the times that we are living has been influenced by people that feel that are untitled to the top 20%. And everyone else is beneath them. SMV (sexual market place value) is being ignored and because of this there a lot of lonely people out there. If your reading this just know education doesn’t mean intelligence. There are people out there that believe that if your well educated that you will find someone as educated or more that yourself. I believe the saying is water finds its own level. Unfortunately that’s not the case. Just know a man looks for different things that a woman does and a woman looks for different things that a man does. But now women act like men and men act like women. The hole situation is upside down. There’s no more ying and yang. No more complimenting each other. It’s much more about selfishness and resource Acquisitions. Maybe one day people will see each other as the complimentary to each other. But I will continue searching for the elusive unicorn. Maybe there’re out their. But if this elusive isn’t found it will be ok. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by friends and family. I’ll never be alone.
Needs more features

The amount of fake profiles on here is utterly insane there are more of those than actual real people on here..I signed up and as I was tryna set up my profile honestly I got 25 messages within a min..all fake profiles it’s insane and whoever runs this crap app does nothing about it also One of the things this app need is more features! Like turning on or off the "who wants to meet you" half those notifications are fake people bots..almost alway...there's gotta be a way to just turn that stupid feature off..also there's gotta be a age limit..I don't wanna see 18 year olds An 50 year olds there should be a way to only see a select Age rage..and if you block someone why do you still see them on your list?...if someone blocks you or you block them they shouldn't still be on there..POF has been around for a LONG time And I'm surprised they haven't changed or added any of these features yet..they can add stupid stuff like commenting on a picture? OkCupid did that..why not copy the better features of OkCupid instead..another thing I notice Is messages aren’t going through if you send a long message it won’t send..and I been finding others who have this same problem also..been like that for a very long time An they haven’t fixed it..
Scammers
by wiseseniorlady on 2019/08/04 02:49
To all the women out there, you have to be really careful I was scammed and it was horrible it was the most humiliating embarrassing situation I’ve ever had in my life I don’t blame POF for that I blame the scammers that are out there every day looking for women any women old young fan fat ugly it doesn’t matter to them they just want to scam you they want to take your money from you they tell you they love you they can’t live without you and that’ll go on for about a month and then they start asking for money little bits at a time, And I got suckered in to $1480 he sent a companies check that was bad deposited into my account through wire money it was a week before the bank even notified me then I had to pay the bank back the biggest thing about it was there there are lots of ladies out there and men that are being scammed every day by these horrible people. I think God every day that I am off the site and not interested anymoreI hope you ladies listen to my letter I don’t blame POF but I do blame the scam that’s out there Wise senior lady
Hope taken away every time I login!

Absolutely filled with fake accounts. Clicked on multiple profiles with the exact same bio, heading, and even water marks on photos. (Some of which ask you to upgrade your service to message, and they are fake profiles. Pretty scummy) It’s like they don’t even try to filter these profiles out. In the meet me, I’ve swiped left on multiple profiles and weeks later they are back on my recommended matches. It’s like that whole feature completely disregards your choices. There’s no way to see the last time someone has even been active unless you pay. I’ve paid for the service in the past and got nothing from it. I don’t appreciate doing that and then when I decide to try the free route, I’m being pressured into paying again. This app really only stands out because it’s one of the very few dating apps that will allow you to interact with people without paying. If it wasn’t for that alone, I don’t think this platform would really be worth the effort, or the money....also when I paid I never saw a feature to only interact with others who pay. So I either missed it, it’s only on the females side of things, or it’s a complete scam to entice people to pay. Which would be pretty bad if so.
I am not going to do it, but look at all those that are beautiful and cannot get dates, either :-)

POF is nice that it's free to reply to messages. The initial sender of the message us to pay the monthly fee. so if a person on the free account once to show interest, they view the profile of the paying customer, causing them to appear upon the who viewed me list. They might even be able to send a wink. If they are really interested, The free customer simply means to view the profile of the person they like, every day. Their face will become familiar to the pain customer, and will always be near the top of the list when the paying customer sort by date, in their viewed me. So actually, that is like real life! OK yeah that should be like four or five stars for the POF rating. I still have never gotten a day off of POF though. I am a paying customer this summer, so may have to pay for professional profile help. I spent $600 last Tuesday and $400 last night at the Gentlemens club, just for lap dances so I can hug and caress slender women. I think most of the girls on POF that actually date, date those exciting guys who don't have any money and don't have a car and probably don't have a job. Therefore it is a societal problem, not really a problem with me.
Avoid this app
by Thumbs wayyyy down on 2018/05/21 08:23
So I’ve been visiting different dating apps for a while, about half a year now, and I have to warn people. This is one of the worst I’ve come across. I’m a guy, and I can’t speak for the girls review but for the guys, about half of the female profiles are fakes, scammers or secret porn advertisements. I’ve never seen so many fake profiles before, and it’s obvious they are computer generated with similar names and intro summaries etc. anyone could pick them out. Obviously PoF doesn’t screen anyone or provide a suitable dating environment. Aside from sifting through hundreds of fake profiles, you don’t know who is real or not. I didn’t have a single message or message reply, most of the messages I sent were (unread-deleted) without anyone even viewing my profile, so I’m not sure what’s going on with that but it’s highly suspect. Also, the distance and age you place on filters is completely ignored. From my perspective I think PoF purposely adds fake profiles to boost their member numbers, and ignores filters so you gain more meetings, etc. because the number of real users is pretty low. To say the least, stay away, you won’t get anywhere or meet any real women. Literally, you have better chances with any other app out there.
Terrible customer service
by artfoundry on 2018/02/11 02:02
Been using the service for a few years, and a week ago my account got hacked (even though I never give out my login info and never click on junk email)! I can't reset my password because the hacker changed the email for my account. The help section on the web site has NO information on how to contact them. There's an email address they list to remove from your spam filter, but it's just a return address - no one answering emails, not even an auto-responder. The only legit seeming email I found was in the forums. I sent an email and got an auto response saying they were experiencing high email numbers and would get back to me as soon as they could. That was a week ago! I still don't have access to my account, and who knows what crap the hacker is doing in my name! [Update] It took a complaint to the BBB (Better Business Bureau) and waiting another month to finally get a response from these people, and all they had to say was my account was closed for violations of their terms of service. So I don't get my account back, hell I don't even know if they still have my pictures and info still on their servers! Stay away from this app unless you're ok with rolling the dice.
Land of the fake profiles
by Carol Mallier on 2019/09/02 22:35
Last time I was single I enjoyed using the Plenty of Fish (POF) website. This time around not so much. About two thirds of the profiles are not real people but rather photos stolen from somewhere on line with profiles written by poor destitute people in either West Africa or Russia. For many it’s a quick one two hustle from an introduction to them trying to get you to part with your hard earned money. Their command of the English language is pigeon English at best. All proclaim to be Engineers yet can’t construct a proper sentence. All the men are widowers with no children (I guess it’s easier if the story isn’t complicated). All and all a waste of time. I can see this site going out of business if they don’t do something soon to correct this issue. I will add paying for “premium membership” doesn’t help either unless you select the option “only responds to other premium members” in which case you will be limited to a few dozen people. I can’t help but wonder why the owners of POF don’t just invest in some better firewall protection. Dating sites are a multi million dollar business but not when those users can never actually meet real people.
Male review.
by habndyman on 2017/11/14 21:59
They do a good job for a free site. It’s like others, ladies putting up old pics and saying their recent. Some are extremely demanding cause their pretty or whatever. I have been bold faced lied to way too much but that’s what you get for free. Hint: see who’s viewed you after you viewed them first try writing them. Suggest all pics should be 2 yrs old or less as a selfie is pretty easy. When I see 10 yr old pics posted I write them n say take them down, nobody cares. They always have excuses. Look at their worst pic and that’s closest to how they look now. Usually the last pic on the right. This site should push for current pics only as were on an honor system. Try to write a few times, suggest one shorter phone call and then you will learn a lot more if you ask 2 or 3 questions, then maybe a meeting for coffee or lunch. Some are out for a free lunch only and their the liars about the pics. Ask how many meetings they have had too. Ask if they meet Mr right will they eventually move in with him. If her place is full n small then no room for you. Ask yourself if you have room too
Ok....just wow
by gosuty on 2018/11/22 17:15
Okay gentlemen, let me be frankly honest with you. If you’re thinking you’ll have a bit of luck without the natural physical traits, you might want to redirect your attention to another app or rise above that storm by jumping out there in person instead of using an app with a bunch of shallow women and spam bots polluting the app with their garbage. This app used to be amazing and people actually RESPONDED!!! Now you dont get a single word from these people because either they arent interested or the bloody automatic filters is so strict and ridiculously unrealistic that the messages wont even go through and it doesnt matter how modest or clean you are. When you do get a message its only a simple “hey :)” literally you’ll probably get a crap ton of those though. Anywho It appears these people are more concerned about looks than anything else so theyll easily swipe right passed ya youre just a toy they didnt want. PoF appears to be so lazy to fix their gosh forsaken app and get rid of these sex driven robots and add insult to their app by posting other dumb robots claiming that the “user” only wants messages from a paid subscriber. Anyway if you somehow manage to get past all that and you find yourself in the 3% category of the successful people, congrats.
Customer Service and Support was horrifying.
by 303858 on 2019/09/15 21:59
The customer service for this company is the worst I have ever been involved with. I actual felt helpless and that I have made a huge mistake. I don’t believe I have ever written a review before. The customer service department is in India which doesn’t really matter but they just don’t care and they are very hard to understand. The call center is extremely loud. I had to call them three times and I will never call them again. It’s unfortunate that I spent $77 bucks for the premium package because it hasn’t help and it did no improve their support. If I need support again I will just stop using the app, I will never call customer support again. When I ask him why they didn’t care he told me he didn’t like my attitude and that I wouldn’t listen anyway. I ask why they didn’t care and why they wouldn’t want me as a customer renewing my premium package and buying tokens and they said it doesn’t matter POF has millions of customers. If you don’t believe me spend 5 minutes reading their customer service reviews or any reviews for that matter. They also denied my request for a refund, one day after I purchased it. Don’t waste your hard earned money. Best of luck.
It’s good, but...
by AlexBro201811 on 2019/06/12 21:03
The first few days I really enjoyed this app. Even without paying for the upgrade, it was fun, I could message people and I even met a few nice guys. But just today there was this jerk that got mad because I didn’t want to talk about inappropriate things with him. He reported me and got my account deleted! I didn’t do anything wrong at all! And I had this really nice guy I had been talking to. So I made a new account and it wouldn’t let me message anyone! I tried again a few hours later and it let me send like two messages then shut off my messaging again! Now I can’t message anyone, I can receive messages and it says I sent messages back, but when I go to the “sent messages” option, it shows that I didn’t. What the heck is going on? I thought maybe at a certain point you have to pay for more messages but it’s not giving me that option and I’m not sure if I do pay if I will even be able to message... please help. Is this just a glitch or is it something else?
Over rated
by Tschnepper on 2017/12/28 02:36
As a guy I find the site very dull. I am polite and am not looking to find hookups. I'm just a normal genuine nice guy. Like the kind of guy every girl on here claims they are looking for but never say hello to.. I get "ghost" pop ups saying "someone" just sent you a message. Or "so and so" want to meet you. When I open the app and check... Never any messages. My inbox is empty. My notifications is refreshed and still nothing. Girls don't message guys. The only ones that do are so scary I'm afraid they would eat me for dinner or are a fake profile and want me to click some like to some web site. So as a guy this site is very dull. All I do is vote yes or no on the meet me pictures, which only takes a second as only 5 or 7 pictures will load before going to a screen that says no more girls in my area. I live in Phoenix Arizona. I know there are more than 50 girls registered and in a 100 mile parameter. The only thing this site has that every other site doesn't do is free messaging. You get to send or read a message for free without having to pay a membership but again, as a guy... I don't get any. No replies either. I guess women now a days are scared of more than a two liner conversation.
Terrible (beware)
by Barias17 on 2017/10/25 04:34
First of all, I'd be willing to bet that all of the 5 star reviews on here are as fake as half of the accounts on here. The app itself is okay, but they want to immediately charge you for every feature that would actually get you noticed on there. If you don't pay them, your account will be "unpopular" and nobody will even get the chance to match or see you. Once you pay $20 for some "highlights" you'll get people wanting to meet you, which you then must upgrade your account to allow you to see them... this app is constantly trying to tear apart your wallet... Once you get matches, 45% of the accounts are fake catfish accounts and another 45% are nasty prostitutes trying to get you to pay them for sexual acts. The 10% chance that you do get a real person is first a hard thing to come by, but often times are way too far out of your distance because for some reason it won't let you change the distance gauge. In the end after you pay them your money, work to sort through the catfishes and hookers, you're left with a slim chance at finding someone worth any time. This app is a joke. BEWARE BEFORE GETTING TOO FAR INTO THIS APP.
Not all girls are looking for relationships and a lot of not good matches.
by Noahldavid on 2017/09/25 23:17
So I’ve had this app for a little bit and I’ve noticed that 1. There’s a lot of fake accounts asking for money or sex services. 2. Usually girls on here talk a big game and say their looking for dates and men but never actually go on dates with men or even message back. I’ve also noticed that they put some serious firepower into their profiles so that men will get there hopes up and than never response or just block you! 3. The matching system is weak and seriously outdated! You never get a true match it’s always the complete opposites that don’t have anything in common! A lot of boring girls too it’s unreal! Seriously this app is for people who have the patience and time to actually talk to people and build a profile. I’m waiting for the next big bad dating app to come out that basically makes these sites/apps change there approach towards dating and relationships.

by svetochka1993 on 2019/07/03 18:55
During 2 days I received more than 400 texts with a lot of compliments. It was exited to read how all of this men admired of me. Than I noticed all their profiles are similar- every man is very handsome with high salaries ( doctors, pilots, executives from oil companies), almost every man is widower with history of long care of deadly sick wife and than rising by himself a little daughter who is now in Europe with the mother of his late wife, all of them are on long business trip right now, some were born in Europe and have an accent. They want your email and phone number ( for the site credit they warning you) but their phones registered as text only. Funny how they call you - always broken connection and the accent are not from Europe but from Mid East. They like long chats on viber and soon say how they love you( after 10 min writing!). One pretends he lives in my little town near Santa Barbara ca but we can meet when he’ll “be back from California “, haha! Ladies, hope my review will be helpful and maybe some of my 400 men is real not fraud but I don’t have time and desire to check each of them. Trying to unsubscribe but so far can’t even find the link. Good luck!
Got hacked and customer service is not available
by Crexlvr on 2018/10/30 01:45
I have been using POF off and on (same profile) for years and tonight I got an email that my password had been changed, so I immediately went in and changed the password. My photos were swapped out for someone else’s with different height, ethnicity and location and she had messaged more than 10 men over the past hour... when I tried to see what had been written, of course they had all blocked her, so I can only imagine. Looked all over the app for a contact us number or chat- none available. Went on the full site- still none available. Tried to use the bot- it doesn’t understand “my profile has been hacked”. Googled customer care #- it’s a message that says they don’t check messages or respond. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED in a site that 5 years ago used to actually be a pretty decent way to meet people when you are busy and don’t mess with the bar scene. Managed to delete my profile on the full site, but who knows what damage has been done. I would appreciate a reply from customer care, because this is a horrible way to run a business- not having any contact info.
Absolutely poor
by LindsGood on 2018/10/09 05:06
I’ve reported issues multiple times and nothing ever happens. When you block people, they still show up ALL OVER the place. You also can’t block someone until you message them or they message you. I can’t view my own pictures without the prompt to upgrade popping up, making it impossible to view the photo. I can delete photos, but not add them unless I upgrade. You’ll get all the notifications for “Meet Me” whether you are upgraded or not. There’s no point whatsoever in putting preferences like age or location. The app disregards it. Also, 95% of the time, it won’t load anything on the first try and give you a “No Internet Connection” message regardless of your reception. Sometimes it will give me that message for hours (sometimes a full 12 or more hours) and unable to use the app at all. I could only use it on WiFi for a couple weeks. I deleted the app and downloaded it again to try to fix the problem and now it won’t log me in. I’ve done it again and now there’s not a shortcut on my phone anywhere. If I want to use the app, I have to go to the App Store and open it from there. Just trash.
Dear POF Developers...
by Hush I'm Speaking on 2018/08/21 12:59
So I downloaded the app with great intentions and moderate expectations that this dating app would be different from the others. I was mistaken. I bought the upgraded user item as well as the “coin” perk that was suppose to make your profile “popular”. And it worked a few times, and I spoke to a few people but not enough to meet in person. However, this is not my qualm with the app. After spending about $60 dollars on coins, my pictures from my profile automatically delete. “How Sway?” So I made sure I had the latest update for the app, deleted the app, downloaded again. ...And to no avail, I’m still not able to upload any pictures to my profile. I just continued to get a glitch about the network, and it’s not my phone network because all of my other social media apps work just fine. So my message to the developers of this app, and as a user who pretty much fully invested “coins” into this app. Get it together, please. There is no way that I should experience technical glitches with the amount of money I used to keep my profile afloat. I’m just saying. Respectfully, unsubscribed user. Thank you.
This site is a scam
by IhateZenPlanner on 2018/08/15 10:34
Don't be fooled by this app! They have a bunch of "members", many of which seem too good to be true - they usually are. A lot of fake profiles, people that look nothing like their pictures and guys who just want to be pen pals and never meet or who are just looking for quick hook-ups. Not to mention the other side of the POF member pool who are looking to get married and have babies like yesterday, maybe that's your cup of tea, but it weirded me out. The cherry on top is the almost non-existent customer support group. They take forever to respond, and their emails typically aren't very helpful. Be careful trying to call them, you're likely to reach a scam group located overseas that will try to install malware on you phone or laptop. Last, but not least, if you're a non-paying member, expect to have your account deleted every couple of weeks. They say that your profile was flagged by their algorithm, but it's really just their way of irritating you into upgrading your membership to paid services. Save yourself some frustration and try another app...or better yet, go out with friends and try and meet someone the old fashion way.
Dreaming of a better way
by wildingbugatoutlookcom on 2018/01/19 01:12
In this day and age, with the millions spent on dating sites, why can’t anyone build an algorithm that comes even close to matching people. Why does POF and other so called free dating sites call them self free when clearly their not. I’ve paid for dating site and tried so called free one but the only matching was location, age and gender.... nothing else even came close. Now I say something about the females I’ve received messages from, do you read my profile? I’m very clear and detailed on who I am and what I’m looking for, my profile unlike most is long and detailed and yet I get occasionally but not often a message sent to me saying nothing but “hi” , a few words more than hi would be great, I answer although and it never goes anywhere because we’re a million miles apart in a match but if they had read my profile the would have know that. I’m trying to be hopeful, trying to be open and dreaming of the day I find that special women.... Hi. Lol
Impersonated , No Help From Team
by Reid_my_hips on 2018/06/03 19:27
One night about a month ago I started receiving text messages from men saying we’d matched on POF and they’d seen my number on my profile and decided to text me. Problem is , I didn’t have a PoF. I asked the men to send me a screenshot of the profile , only two were able to do so because by the time the others had gone back , the page had been deleted. Someone made a fake page , used one of my pictures, and put my real phone number on the page. I tried to figure out who it was but couldn’t because the page was taken down. I tried to file a complaint with PoF but couldn’t without creating a profile. So I did so. I’ve sent in THREE inquiries about the fake profile so that I may be able to press charges against whom ever felt it necessary to put my personal information out there, but I’ve received no word back at all from the customer service team. That is ridiculous. All I want to do is get this information so that this person who violated me and my privacy can be punished. PLEASE have someone from your team contact me so that I may get to the bottom of this.
Waste of time
by MacMoeller on 2018/04/21 19:44
This app is an utter waste of time almost every other profile is a fake profile. I had to deal with one person twice that made a fake profile and acted like a 16 year old girl I told them I wasn’t comfortable talking to a 16 year old and they tried to get me to talk sexually and sent me naked pictures without me asking. These people are trying to trap people for some reason I’m not sure what they are trying to gain but they act like a 16 year old girl and say they are giving their phone to their parents, then the “parents” say they are going to report you to the police if you try to call them a guy with a heavy southern accent answers and say they are going to turn you into to police I didn’t send any inappropriate pictures or ask for any I actually said I wasn’t comfortable even talking to her so his statement that he was going to the police didn’t really make sense because I didn’t do anything wrong. Basically what I’m trying to say is this app is garbage they need a better and faster way of finding out if profiles are real or not but I would suggest just don’t even waste your time with it at all
Too Many Scammers.
by littlecreek21 on 2017/12/26 08:42
I get almost daily emails from women that state their age to be between 50 and 70 but their pics are of 20 or 30 somethings. Then their profiles are almost word for word the same. Bad use of words and broken English. They immediately request a phone number yo text. I've gone along with a couple of them and within 5 or 6 texts they're asking for money. Under my weekly matches there are rarely women that even come close to what I'm looking for. Under Want To Meet Me, well they rarely requested to meet me. POF made the request not them. Most of the women that are shown to me are from quite a ways away although my search states a max of 100 miles away. I'd say that 90% of the women that I contact don't answer back. They put their profile up and some almost beg for responses but if my profile doesn't fit their mold they don't answer. To me that's downright RUDE. And most of the women that do contact me do it with two words. HEY THERE, yet they want you to write them an essay......just for them not to answer. With all of that said I have been on a few dates from this site but haven't met my soulmate yet.
POF randomly deleted me!
by dmdpickle2 on 2019/08/31 11:40
I joined POF a week ago, had some nice pictures of me and my parents posted. I’m a professional, kind and pretty woman looking to get back into the dating world again after loosing both my parents last year, whom I took care of for 6 years. I was inundated with over 100 messages, and could not keep up with replying to all. So, I hid my profile for a few days, so I could catch up, and reply to each of them. I think that is the courteous thing to do. Then, I just found out my brother in law has stage 4 cancer, so I left town immediately to be with family. My profile was obviously still going to be hidden during that time. But, when I went to go back to my messages, and continue communicating with the men I liked, my profile was completely gone and deleted! I contacted customer care two times, but they never replied to me. I followed all the guidelines, am single and did nothing wrong. I was kind and respectful in all my messages. So, I’m pretty upset with POF, because after 6 years of taking care of my parents, I’m ready to date. Or was, until POF deleted my chances.
Tons of spam
by ChillOreo on 2019/05/27 05:34
I’ve owned a smartphone for over a decade and this is the first time I’ve ever left a review, positive or negative. With this app, I felt motivated to leave a review simply because of how atrocious it is. If anyone reads this, please know that your experience is likely to be filled with a plethora of spam, bots, and what not. Within seconds of me completing my profile, I was messaged immediately asking for me to send someone money or to visit their “naughty website.” It’s very obvious when you’re connected to bots, and if the whole point of your app is to connect humans to other humans, what’s the point? It’s the same thing over-and-over. You’re messaged by someone, it turns out to be spam, and repeat. This is bad because by time you spend 10 minutes on this app, your inbox will be filled with so much spam that real messages from real people are drowned out. The funny thing is that they use this google picture thing to combat bots but they still run wild. In all honesty, I’m positive I didn’t interact with any actual human being during my time with the app. This app is not good and there’s better alternatives.
Hacked
by Jozy1300 on 2018/12/09 13:31
I made a first time profile the other day and within thirty minutes my account was hacked and my login email was changed. When it kept telling me my password was wrong I thought it was strange and when I requested a reset email and never received it I was even more alarmed. I wrote to customer service who informed me my email was no longer associated with the profile I had just made. It has now since been over twenty-four hours and all POF has sent me is canned responses about high email volume when all I’m trying to do is confirm the profile that was stolen from me is no longer active. They also say if you’re an upgraded user to email them again and tell them and you’ll get priority. So I guess the people who can’t afford to pay don’t deserve customer service at all. They have zero cares about your safety and the safety of your information as a customer. I can’t even get a confirmation that this now bogus profile has been removed. A hacker could be using my profile and likeness to do irreparable damage and it’s been over 24 hours with zero response. Horrible!
Happy 😊😊
by AmorBlue on 2019/02/08 03:55
I wasn’t on POF long, because this was where me and my boyfriend met. He messaged me the day after i made the app and we talked and got to know each other better. When we met in person it was like we knew each other our entire life, it was amazing. I had a few weird messages here and there and i also had to block people that messaged me over and over after not replying to them, but that’s something that can happen on more than POF. I loved the fact that people could message you without both of you ‘matching’ with each other, because sometimes you either over look someone that might be a great person to get to know by mistakenly swiping the wrong way. I would recommend this app! I no longer have it on my phone, but just thought that i would confirm that it is possible to find love through this app!
Stinks
by country75boy on 2018/08/23 00:50
The app freezes up a lot and takes a long time to load. Very annoying. No other dating app I use does that. There is also a lot of fake profiles with people trying to get you to give out your email to hook up for paid sex. It’s supposed to be an app to meet and date which a lot of people don’t use it that way. Just fake people trying to get money. You block them and report them and more pop up everyday. Then the app changes to a new look which I liked a lot and a week later it changes back to the old look when I open it up. No updates to cause this to happen. The most annoying thing is the loading. Sometimes it’s takes 3 to 5 minutes to freaking load. Other times I wait 10 to 15 minutes and end up closing the app or sometimes it says no internet connection when I do have connection. The app is stupid. I know very well others have this problem. So why hadn’t this been fixed? Sometimes the app won’t work at all and I have to delete it and redownload just to get it to load. Very annoying cause it’s everyday this happens.
Too Regulated

I really and truly don’t like dating sites and apps that try to confine the age search criteria. I find it extremely conformist and confining. I understand that people are more likely to match with others who are their own age, but that still doesn’t change the fact that there is a large percent of exceptions to that pattern. Some middle aged people stay fairly naive and innocent and in-shape, and some young adults are extremely mature and experienced for their age. If you put them together they often make the perfect couple. But sites like POF want to completely prevent that from happening by restricting your age criteria to only 13 years. It’s extremely shallow and doesn’t help at all, so I rarely use them. Perhaps there were too many shallow and simpleminded people complaining about mixing with age groups they aren’t interested in, but confining everyone as a result is no solution. If people don’t like seeing other age groups in their feed, they should be able to change that in their settings, not regulate what others can or cannot do. This is NOT a solution, POF, it’s a problem.
90% fake profiles

I have joined four of the major dating apps. While they all have occasional fake profiles, This site is inundated with fake profiles! Literally eight out of 10 are complete BS. There’s pictures of girls that can’t possibly be over 20 and the age says 59. Always short canned answers if you click on the message. The replies to any sort of drill down question don’t even match the question. They want to get you on a cam so that they can get you over to an adult website. And this site makes it extremely difficult to get rid of them out of your profile which makes it hard to find actual real human beings. And if you try to report one you have to write a message over a certain amount of characters or it won’t take the report which is just another way to slow down reporting fake profiles. The reason they’re OK with fake profiles is it makes it look like they have more people on their website then they do. I signed up for three months that I can’t get out of and I’ve already canceled it from being renewed. Move on to one of the other sites.
