On the app. A few years back and match came up and she, he, it or whatever looked like a male and I told it so. I was reported or whatever, and was banned for life. Well if it looks like a duck then it is a duck. I don't care what your preference is but don't force me to live like that. Keep it to yourself! I don't recommend Plenty of Fish to anyone. Read a lot of reviews today and I agree 99%!

Many years ago when I was on POF, it was halfway decent. Now it's full of fake profiles and scammers. Many of the men who are on this site, never read their messages and even tell you they're not on the site very often. So why are they on a dating app if they're not using it? When you look at the customers picked for you, 50% of them give you a message to look elsewhere, this person is seeking something else. Again, this site used to be pretty good, it's gone downhill. I do not recommend. Tinder and Bumble are much better.

About 5 years ago I was a member of POF, had a few success meets but nothing of any substance. About 2 weeks ago, I joined again. Thus far POF has deleted 71 profiles that I informed them were fake. Apparently, POF does nothing to very little to nothing to verify the authenticity of the profiles. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT pay for any service that POF offers. Now it's very easy to determine a fake profile. The pictures are of beautiful women who list an age that is obviously incorrect. All you need to do is download a pic and do a reverse image scan using a free app and you will find 90% of the time that the pic is from a model, usually European. Please don't get fooled when you select the "LIKE" option feature and you receive a "Mutual" response that the profile you selected likes you as well. Do your research, the chances are of the response are extremely high. Better off getting a hooker at least you get something for your money.

I tried this site 4 years ago. Decided recently to check it out again. They redesigned the site. I don't believe there is a single legitimate person on the entire site. Tons of scammers. I'm thinking the site is in on it too. They give you 1 free message to send out every 24 hours. You can also pay for a 3, 6, or 1 year membership where you basically pay for the scammers to get your "likes" and you can put yourself in the front of this "Meet Me" thing where you will be first on display for the scammers to target you. And you can pay to send out a max of 50 messages a day. If you're paying for it, shouldn't you be able to send out as many as you want? I would avoid the paid subscription at all costs (no pun intended). The profiles that say "I can't see likes" and "I don't have Meet Me" are really great. Also the ones that send out likes and first contacts and then it says they disabled their profiles for messaging.

This site is a TOTAL WASTE of Time! No one contacts you when you reach out, also the women are sometimes not real or just a bit-type algorithm that keeps repeating on the site in order to draw you in. This site kept billing me, a month after I deleted my account. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE!!!!

They lie to you. They show preferential treatment to girls... They deny it But I proved it. They show you recommended matches and the matches aren't taking messages... Complain and they deny it, so is this a ploy to get you to fork out money for the same treatment? YES it is... And if you complain... they remove your profile.

I wanted to change the age preference of the men I’d like to meet. But it always defaulted to an age I was not interested in. I should be able to pick my own age of preference, not POF’s. Who I choose to date is of no concern to Plenty of Fish and therefore the ages I am interested in should be picked by myself.

Only likes of people 15+..your age...very hard to view the age group you want....paid for one month waste of time and money...at least years ago you can view maybe date decent people ...forget it. This is trash.

I tried the free POF dating site and when it gave me the option to upgrade, I chose the 1 month subscription but it boosted me to a 119.00 year long subscription without my consent. I have emailed the POF.com site numerous times and have never got a reply back. They took 119.00 from me and I got nothing. I canceled my subscription and did not use the service, I believed I would get my money back or my Regions Bank would cancel my subscription and get my money back to my account but because POF offers no phone support and no receipt of purchase my worthless Regions bank says I was responsible for getting that before I engaged in commerce with POF; although REGION'S BANK did not block the sale for 5 days because they said it was in a pending status. Beware of this site, it has no phone support and will boost your bank account and leave it in pending status for days until your worthless bank leaves you high and dry.

POF was once a trusted and wonderful site. In recent years, however the site has become home to plenty of fake and spam accounts. As quickly as you report them, the fakes return fast. POF takes no preventative action whatsoever against these fake accounts. In addition, I was issued a warning for being a "false reporter" of fake accounts when all of my reports were justified.
I have made some contacts and friends on this site. But the vast majority of accounts on the site are spam bots. POF needs to take a more preventative stance against fraud on the site, and also needs to treat reports as being made in "good faith". That includes taking no retaliatory action against reports because doing so discourages reporting of these accounts and also opens POF and its parent company up to legal action and liability.
POF.com author review by Mark Brooks
POF.com, also know as Plenty of Fish, is the largest completely free online dating site.
No Charge: While there are upgrade options available to further enhance your experience, POF.com is the largest dating site that allows you to have a completely free dating experience.
Profiles may include several photos: Users can provide photos of themselves in various settings as well as both full-length photos and headshots to provide the most accurate information about themselves for potential matches.
Advanced behavioral search algorithm: Along with allowing members to perform basic or detailed searches, POF also reacts to the profiles you choose to click on. In future searches, it will then refine your results by bringing you results that match both what you are asking for and what you are looking at.
Anonymous email network: Users can email potential matches through POF.com's own messaging service, allowing them to keep their identities and contact info private until they are ready to share it.
Profiles are screened before being posted: POF.com staff screens profiles and photos before posting to ensure only appropriate information makes it onto the site.
