As a woman who only been on POF for less than a year, I was sexually assaulted and I have had what appeared to be a pimp trying to get me to meet up with him, even sent me a very degrading message.
All men who messaged me wanted my phone number right away and when I first signed up and didn't know any better I would give my number which leaded to the men wanting to come to my place and wanted to sleep with me, so I stopped giving out my number and expressed just wanting to chat and getting to know people first, which leaded to men not talking to me anymore.
There are many stories of women being sexually assaulted by men on POF, so there's the answer to why many of you men can't find a woman who's so willing. Then there's also your married men or men who have girlfriends who want to just text you. Many are Construction workers who only have time to text, but not talk, so be aware ladies. I also had a few run ins with what I believe were pimps. I rather be safe than sorry. Guys, don't blame most of us women, blame the men who are the real ones making it hard for you by being dishonest and even going as far as assaulting women.
I even heard stories of women being full blown raped. What I learned from POF, if a guy is truly interested in getting to know you, he will respect you not wanting to give out your personal information right away.
He wouldn't mind video chatting or meeting up in a public place. Don't be so quick to go to his place or invite him to yours, or even give him your number.
This site is a huge risk. I'm sure there are some nice guys, but that's if you can make it through the crazy ones first. What can I say? POF still pretty much rules the roost. Sure there are some other contenders like WeJustFit worth trying if you havent already and maybe 2 or 3 others but overall I bet if you ask ten people on the street to name an online dating site then you can be sure 8 or 9 will say POF.
I gave this site two stars out of generosity. I should give them one. As you can see there are plenty of one star reviews for this site and that should tell you something.
You have to do a lot of searching before you finally meet a match if in fact that ever happens. A lot of writing and reading and nothing develops.
Even when you are matched with someone that is supposedly compatible nothing happens. I still have a profile on there but I have lost almost all hope. I go on there from time to time for maybe a minute or two and am done. A lot of fish but nothing biting. You are probably better off going somewhere to meet people than this online crap.
While not a paying member, I have been using this site for a couple of months and have met some nice guys. I insist on staying on the site for initial communications. Some never write back after that.
If they're that impatient, no great loss. Others do not read my profile in spite of the fact that I attempt, patiently, to direct them to it , and insist on asking me questions that are answered on my profile, or they say they've read it and have ignored the important parts.
And then there are those who say something like, "Ask me anything", and they don't answer when you ask, even twice. I've also seen two or three profiles probably with phony pictures that say exactly the same thing, word-for-word!
They say they have "No pets", but write glowingly about their dog, Max! There are lots of guys on there who are from other countries, and some don't say what they mean or the opposite!
They are so difficult to understand or communicate with that I generally try to steer clear of them, without being rude. Sometimes schedules just don't mesh! Sometimes they even show a picture of someone who "wants to meet" me click on the number of views at the top of the page , and if they're new, I can find them on "New Users" and click to see their profile. If you join, happy fishing! Maybe you'll find me! I am finding too many frauds lying about general information and fake profiles.
I can figure it out pretty fast so not sure what the fake profiles are trying to do. Very disappointing and aggravating! I'm in south florida and trying to find a decent man close to my age. I am 49 but considered really good looking and in-shape since I eat pretty healthy and workout. So can't find men with enough common interests and also good looking to me and in-shape with good personality.
I'm shocked how people in general don't take care of themselves where the weather is beautiful. And, yes, plenty of weirdos on here Should be called POW. I just deactivated my account. This site is a sewer. Do not pay anything for this site or any site. I searched for free on other site even paid ones you can search for free and I saw the same guys on most of the other sites as well.
I'm gonna grow old alone unless luck steps in and maybe I'll meet my guy IRL. Don't waste your money or your time! Go outside and play. Meet someone the old fashion way.
And those paying sights aren't any better! Spending money isn't going to make a difference. POF is not free at all, you have to upgrade; become a paying member to be able to do anything interesting. You cannot do it from the mobile site. You need to use your search , example safari and look up pof desktop version and go to the help in the top left.
It will walk you thru it , if I remember correctly. First, write to POF and explain. Now, and I mean NOW call up your credit card company and tell them what happened. I am sure POF will not contact you. Make sure to use the word "unacceptable" when describing the consumer service to the CC company about POF. Keep all emails too.
Please keep me posted. I've set several messages to women who supposedly were interested. Is this because I haven't upgraded? POF reviews Is this your business? Write a Review Ask a Question Share.

And when I tried to register again, with the same username that I had finally succeeded with last night, I was told that it was already taken! Apparently my new account was deleted almost immediately after it was opened, without ANY violation of their Terms of Service on my part and with absolutely NO notification to me of why!!!
