Is there somewhere on someone's profile where I can tell if they are currently online?

The best Way is to add them to your Favourites List which indicates the Date & Time they have last logged into their E-mail.

Billy-Bob Appears on 27 members favorites lists and has 2 roses that can be sent.

Add to favorites


To so, either click on the Add to favorites Link at the bottom of a User's Profile

... or type/paste in the User Name at the Bottom of your Favourites List Page.

You can also check your Who Loves Me List ... those who have added you to their Favourite List, which is usually a little more accurate, as it reflects that User's current E-Mail Activities.

Note:If you have been E-Mail Blocked by a given User, or has a Hidden Profile, you will not be able to add that User to your Favourites List.

Is there any way to tell when someone was last online if they are NOT on your list of favorites?

If someone has added you to their Favourites List, you can see their approximate Time of E-Mail Logins from your Who Loves Me List, which is very similar to the Favs.

The Basic Search indicates Online Today, Online This Week, Online Last 30 Days.

Anyone at the very Top of your Viewed Me and My Matches are also either current or recent log-ins.

The information will be available to them, but they miight not access it.

They can click the "Who Loves Me" link at the bottom of their Inbox page,
On the Favorites page is a link "Find out who has selected you as a favorite" (which takes you to the list).

Depending on their mail settings they may have enabled that a message be sent to their private (non-POF email address) that user xxx (you?) has added them as a favorite.

Of course. Messages here are like email. They get them when they log in again.

sorry cowboy...i think i might be a little confused or confusing here.

what i mean was - if i log on to POF - my status will be "ONLINE NOW".

if i wanted to log into POF just to read messages - my online status would still be ONLINE NOW.

it was mentioned in a previous thread that if you disable the instant IM you won't show up as ONLINE NOW.

I just wanted to know is there any way where you can log in and not show as ONLINE NOW - if you only want to pick up messages sent.

am i making sense? or did i confuse everyone more?

" Online Now" means you signed into your email here recently.

Instant Messenger on here was disabled long ago so that's not even an option.

Yes, just as you have by having your profile hidden. You will NOT show as being ONLINE NOW except to those that have you listed as a favorite. I hope that answers your question.
