anyone been on pof for longer than a year?Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
Hi, i'm H

Just coming up to my second pof membership anniversary. Sometimes it can be quite despairing and sometimes it can be an absolute confidence boost... for a while

it's been quite an experience, though hoping i don't reach my third anniversary

oh thank heavens... though not you being on here so long

just don't seem to have the right kind of luck, though have gained some rather good mates on here (so i can't be that bad :)

i think if i'm on here much longer, i'll start getting gills

2008, that really is a long time, I hope in all honesty that you will meet that special someone on here.

I keep thinking is the more i could do, I created a new account thinking that it might make me more visible, i've changed my pics and re-written my profile more times than i can remember

i'm not wholly unhappy being single, its more the lack of shared experience that i miss, not having that someone to turn round to and say, did you see that, what did you think of that etc.

I've been on here for years as well,although this is a rare visit to the forums as i haven't been on them for yonks.
Even though i have been on here years i still haven't actually gone out on a date with anyone lol.
Made plenty of friends but no one i have got on with well enough or fancied enough to go out with.
Never been a serial dater so i always considered it wise to choose carefully as i get easily attached,i have been a bit to choosey i think.

I am very much a dating site veteran. This is my third separate spell on this site and my history re other daing sites stretches back some 15 years.

My head keeps telling me this form of contact witgh the opposite sex does not work for me, but I have found it very very difficult to bfreak the addiction.

No doubt, if there is a dating site up there (or the other place we are supposed to go to when we pop our clogs and become just spirits) I shall be on that one as well.

Been on here, in one guise or another,for more years than I care to recall. Like Bambi (above) I sometimes take some time out, so it looks like I joined far more recently than I did.

Been on a number of 'meet & greets' and a handful of dates, but still waiting to meet someone who shares my odd(?) outlook on life.

I came to the conclusion a long time back that internet dating is not the ideal way to meet someone, but it beats hanging around on street corners (just).

I spend longer on the Forums than actually using the dating side, which is why I probably appear to be almost always online.

Having said that, if anyone out there.........

Sometimes it depends what you expect ID to do for you.
Im building up a database of ladies who pop around for coffee, go out for meals etc.
I think at various stages of your life you need different things and although I think that we would all love to find the one most of us are inflexible and have built up our own little world based on survival on our own.

You may have shamed us into silence Freeborn, as most of us have smaller problems (far as I know).

Op yes, longer than a year and not for the first time - unfortunately I've joined the long-term unattached it seems.

Lot of truth in #12 re getting inflexible about disturbances to our carefully created living pattern, at least I'm a bit guilty of that.

I've been here for about a year, I was thinking now that I should try organisations like Spice in London... I never fancied going to a PoF meet, but the stuff Spice organises is pretty fun...I can't wait to go walking with wolves.. I hope they do it again soon.

This sounds like an ego boosting thread. What's the purpose wanting to know how long people have been on here? To make you feel better about how long you've been here?
