51 ‘Plenty of Fish’ Reviews
I signed up for two months, I did not agree to auto pay or renewal. They charged my card without permission. There is no way to contact them. The phone is in Canada so my cell can't call it. They don't read their emails. This is a scam. I kept getting emails telling me to upgrade, when I didn't respond they upgraded me. Very sketchy company.
F*** Markus, I'm Suing. Who's with me?!!
Took my money and erased my account totally the next day and ignored every email about the issue. Will tell everyone I can about this and am starting a class action law suit. Anyone else who got screwed by POF, email me [email protected]
they owe me money!!!!! They suck!!!!!!! there is no way to get a hold of them...! they suck they take your money and give you shit... if anyone knows how to get their money back let me know!!!
It's just a con.
The meet me feature on Pof is just a con to get people to pay a subscription. I received an email saying someone wanted to meet, i found the person and sent them a message and they replied they had never used the feature.
I contacted POF to ask how to opt out of the feature as it was a con by themselves to get people to subscribe and their reply was.
Thank you for contacting POF! Unfortunately, we are not able to respond to all emails.
just pof trying to make money out of their FREE site.
plenty of fish
Both sexes seem pretty unhappy at this site. The men are just trolling for sex. Out of date photos, lying and many men that just like to post their possesions
My own experience was not positive. 95% of my attempts to contact a member of the opposite sex were never answered and I sent a lot of unique and thought out 1st contact emails. Many were deleted without being read, nor was my profile viewed. Some were deleted following a view of my profile and that's OK. Based on my personal experience I have to conclude a high % of the males there have no intention of actually pursuing a relationship, although that is the stated objective of 90% of the male profiles, unless a platonic conversation once or twice, followed by a quick sex act constitutes a relationship.I had the same experience with long outdated photos on male profiles, repeatedly. And apparently "a few extra pounds" does not mean the same thing to a man as it does to me. Probably half of the men at POF in my state are carrying around an extra 50 to 75lbs. And I quickly learned that Looking for Love, Seeking My Soulmate and other like female qualifiers were code for a delusional man with no interest or desire for intimacy. Although the word love did appear a number of times I did not come away feeling it would consist of much more than amiable companionship in a traveling companion for these males. It would seem for most males at POF any thoughts of being friends with their dating prospect dried up long ago. I'm sure there are successes at POF. But I am equally sure the nonsuccess rate is at least 50 to 1 over the success rate. Males and females seem to have a hugely differing view when it comes to the definition of relationship.
Do not pay to join!
POF keeps people on their site who have not been online for a year or more. I think they keep everyone on their site who has ever registered, even if that person has not purchased a membership. They did that with me. Unless you are very lucky, you will likely be wasting your money to join and pay POF.
Better a pay for site
Awful website. Good job it's free. First and not least is that you are not allowed to corresond with anyone in their 20s ro 30s if you are outside that age group.
Forget that it will not happend. Even if you decied on the age range in the advanced feature you are still not allowed to seach for anyone outside 10 years of your age range.
Better to pay for a site and know that everyone can see you and make their own decisions than decide on this site for free.
Lots of woman in their 40s and 50s looking for toyboys. Go for it.
POF truly means Plenty of Frustration
I deleted my POF profile two days ago after having nothing but PLENTY OF FRUSTRATION with the POF dating website. When I first went on it, I had in my profile listed-Seeks Filipina woman for dating & marriage who seek the same. POF only matched me with Caucasian women which want nothing to do with me whatsoever because I was married 31 years to a wonderful Filipina woman. I asked, begged & pleaded with POF to only match me with Asian women. POF has deliberately & intentionally kept me from being matched with Asian women on purpose. POF has been practicing white on white racism towards me. I'm white American of Irish-Norwegion ancestery & a widower. The majority of white American women(98%) that have never been around people that are originally from the Philippines & people of Philippine background don't want anything to do with me at all whatsoever. POF doesn't like it when black & white American men message & have Asian women on their favorites at all. POF has blocked me from sending messages to my favorites on purpose, they demanded that I immediately upgrade my profile if I want to send messages. I have called their SO CALLED customer service number. CUSTOMER SERVICE IS A BIG JOKE AT POF. My advice to all who are looking for an online dating website, STAY AWAY FROM PLENTY OF FISH, go to Christian Mingle.com, e Harmony.com, they are far better.
Lots of Frogs...Gotta Be Patient
Most of the negative Neds and Nancys on here leaving bad reviews are still single because they walk through life with a disgruntled attitude and cynical outlook...how can you attract positivity when you're projecting so much negativity?
Are there a lot of gold diggers looking for a free meal ticket or just straight up douchebags on the site? Yes. There are many...but there are also people, like you, looking for something of substance. Most people have heard the proverb "good things come to those who wait". This statement couldn't be more true about online (in general) dating. I
knew a friend who met their spouse on this site so I stuck it out for a while, even after a few bad dates and 1 straight up heartbreak.
2 years of dating and I'm now married to a man I met on pof. The site is freakin' free...and there are thousands of people to connect with. If you don't have an "instant gratification" type mindset and don't mind filtering out all the idiots, give it a shot. What do you have to lose?? Be patient and don't throw in the towel so easily.
Disappointing Dating Site For Free Members
I joined POF in April 2013. I'm a widower who is well off financially , nice looking for my age so I am told, and a gentleman. I've sent out SCADS of messages and have gotten no responses. I looked at who viewed my profile and numerous women who I messaged, did not view my profile. That raises a red flag for me. Wouldn't it stand to reason that someone who you messaged would view your profile to read about you? I'm sure some women on here are genuine but many are not. Very disappointing to say the least.
