Why do I keep getting these messages?Page 1 of 1    
I will get a email saying such and such wants to meet me and click on the link to view the profile but it leads to nothing.. A user name search leads to nothing as well.. This is the 2nd time I've seen this.. I might of had more but I don't use this site much.

Learn to ignore the completely absurd "Meet Me" feature on this website.
Whether a single clicks "Yes" or "Maybe" it sends an automated notification to the recipient.
Concentrate on what messages arrive in your POF inbox.

Thanks I did not know that.. I just wonder why no user came up when I copied and pasted the user name in the user search box.

They could have a hidden profile or they could have been a fraud account that got nuked.
Meet Me is undoubtedly one of the corniest features of this website. Certainly not POF's golden moment!
There are countless forum threads about how horrendous it is and how it is such a waste of time.

When a profile is hidden, you have to be signed into http://www.pof.com/ to be able to view it. So sign in before you click the link to their profile. You can also use the Add Friend feature near the bottom of your Favorites page. Enter their name and add them to your list. Then click their name or photo in the listing to view their profile. Hidden users will be visible in your Favorites. If they don't show up when you add them, then their profile is no longer valid.

A Google search for their username might lead you to a cached version of their profile. You can get a last chance to view it if it is no longer active on POF. You can search POF specifically. For example, to search my name you would enter otto bonn site:pof.com for the search keywords.

I ended up seeing a small thumbnail picture of them on my phone as I got the message on the phone as well but when I check the profile was no longer on the site.
