Still might come in handy, depending on how well your aim is...

I havn't been on POF for very long. So I wouldn't know first hand. But I'll let you know when and if it happens. If there's plenty of fish, like the site says, all I have to do is cast out and maybe one will take the bait. lol :)

I met my husband here on POF just this January and we got married last month. So this is a success story of POF. Downside is now we always fight mainly because of money. I am a thrift and he is a no care. I could go on and on but all I am saying is that I am not really happy with the marriage although there are happy moments but I feel like I never want to get married again if I divorced from this marriage.

I joined this site about three years ago after my marriage at 11 yrs split up. I was 49 at the time and had not been in the dating world in 21 years and wasn't quite sure how to get back into the swing of things. I did not want to date anyone I worked with so I tried this site and a couple of paying ones - eHarmony and Match.com. eHarmony was way too expensive and match.com was a rip off.
To be quite honest, I met a lot of men on here and I would sayh 99.8% of them were simply interested in sex. I learned to recognise them early one and avoided that type. I learned that when they started an emai with "Hi Sexy" and would bring sex up in the very first one or two emails; they were just looking for a booty call. And forget the FWB thing as they ONLY want the benefits part, and don't even want to try to cultivate the friend part.
I tried to be as honest as I could be in both my profile and my pictures and always made a point of telling any potential mate that I was just an average woman, no more; no less. And I refused to let past baggage bog my future down.
This past summer I actually did meet the most amazing man on this site and we are in a very healthy, loving relastionship. We are both looking forward to the holiday season and are planning a vacation in last winter.
Don't get me wr0ng, Jeff has his issues and some past baggage, and he told me early on that he had some quirks that some woman couldn't deal with. I happen to find them endearing; one of them was his tendancy to feed all the stray cats in his neighborhood. That just told me his heart is in the right place; especially since I am an animal lover as well.
I guess this gist of this post it that I DO think it is possible to find Mr. Right on this website; just be prepared to kiss a few frogs along the way and open you heart and your mind. And above all, be prepared to give someone a chance.

plenty of carp and other bottom feeders, so be careful of what bait you use.

^^^That's so funny yet sad to say, so true about there being plenty of bottom feeders. Or be careful you don't get sick (i.e. tired of online dating) after finding a couple of bottom feeders, and want to give up completely.

All I've found is a bunch of Men In Lust! They want sex after a few dates. Now now now, it's not like I haven't jumped in a time or two but I now have a 10 date rule or 3 month rule, and not because I like it.....but alot of these guys are just on the prowl for a little booty and that's it! But I keep trying :)

Quoting OWO here :just be prepared to kiss a few frogs along the way and open you heart and your mind. And above all, be prepared to give someone a chance.
I think that's the problem, a lot of people think they'll find their prince /princess charming the first (or at least 5th!) time they try. I've answered funny emails, strange ones, those that just post you as a favorite (and never a word or gesture prior) but it CAN work! Sort of like AA, it works if you work it. :)
I have finally met the man I think works perfectly for me and I'm lovin every minute of it. We are so very compatible !! Keep checking profiles, answering emails and the person you hope to find might be the next one you see.
Happy fishing , everyone and Happy Holidays

Yesss!!!!! I was the first one to be embarrassed and not have anything to do with on line dating. My roomate was using POF at the time and encouraged me to set up a profile. I had some lame encounters with a few guys, but that happens not on a site as well lol. I saw a picture of a cute guy and sent him a message. He messaged me back, and soon we were talking on the telephone. A few weeks later he asked me on a date. We have been together ever since. That was March of 2009. He proposed to me Christmas Day 2011, and we are getting married some time this summer. I would jsut like to say I was a total scheptic, and maybe I was just lucky, but I have to thank POF for introducing me to the love of my life!

I met someone on here only to find out he still has a profile and it anit just to get on the forms or other listed reasons. In fact he cant even define it for me so I told him to GTH, and I opened a new profile. Are we allowed to rat a profile out? Like a buyer beware thread? Or is that grounds for being kicked off POF?

I have been on and off here for the past year or so...I personally have not found what I am looking for at this point, but I am working on it. I do believe that both men and women can be dishonest on here, men lie about their age ...woman about their age and weight. Just be honest...your only kidding yourself in the end. The worst thing about any online dating is that until you meet in person, you really don't know who could be hiding on the other end behind their computer. I have spoken with a guy several times over the past year...finally I have decided to meet him...wish me luck!!

No not yet. Have talked to a few but thats about it. I sincerely believe we have to have patience. And not to get our hopes up to high.

I met a super guy a year and a half ago. He was super! After awhile there were some things that I knew would bother me more down the road, but wow! He was great!
