Ex's on pof?Page 2 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
Both my exes are on pof. Strangely, I felt nothing when I browsed their profiles. Feels good to be finally over dead relationships. The first one was especially nasty and hard to get over with. The second one was an easy peasy breakup. Pof is as much mine as their's.

He did write his faults on his profile, but made it look like it wasn't his fault or it wasn't a bad thing For example. "I am codependent and unemployed. Stupid economy."
Economy had nothing to do with it. He did not want to work, cause he was lazy and kept making up excuses. When he broke up with me, I told him about that, and it pinched a nerve with him. "I am a chronic over-sleeper and night owl." Translation, he stayed up all night playing his little videogames and then slept during the day. "
If you don't like to go out much, that's a plus." He had no money to go out, so there wasnt much we could do. Hell, he didn't even like to go out and do things that were free. So basically complaining that all we did was watch movies and cuddle wasn't really my fault. Also, he keeps saying he is a great guy and doesn't hurt anyone. WRONG..

Yes, I have an ex that I was seeing in 2006 and he just contacted me here. It was nice to catch up with him. He is a sweatheart.

I think pics of children should be banned. It is not right. They dont ask to be here and after all only the guy or girl is doing the dating. Men think that being shot with their children or their pets makes t hem more appealing. Not.......

He is still not over you I guess or was he abusive? Did you chat to him? Was it civil?

People are going to play up their strengths and downplay their faults on their profiles. You're not going to see things like, "I am a class 9 clinger that will go crazy if you won't respond to each and every one of my texts within a timely manner" or something else that may come across as obtuse. Why would anyone put in their profile that they like to play video games all night and then sleep the day away?

Personally, I think this thread is just a round-about excuse to bash an ex that you found on here. I hope you feel better now that you got to vent about him.

Yeah I signed up for this site then a week later my ex signed up and viewed my profile so now when I check to see who viewed me I can see when she online and she on long period of time. I spoke with her tonight and she said she has talked to several guys a friends and most of them wanted sex. I haven't gotten the first reply. I don't know what I'm doing wrong someone please help. Men I don't want your advice.so hold your thought for someone else. Only a woman can help. What is it I can do to attract a woman. I've tried several things and I feel too old to do anything because I get told I look to old. Every where I go there are young people. I think I'm apparently not attractive what are your thoughts.

Honest opinion, lose the shirtless pic and put of one that shows you doing something you enjoy.


Seriously, I'll get banned if I put up a post of myself wanking off to porn.... LOL

No kidding, HeartOn!! That PBJ guy is a hunk.

Autotech, I agree with SassyLassy -- loose the shirtless photo. Not only are they banned on POF, but they are just such a turnoff. Especially with bad angles and bad lighting. You could be such an uber sexy guy in person, but in the photo not so much. You might consider profile review here, sometimes those nuts over there are incredibly helpful.

Define Ex you mean as actual relationship? Nope see ladies that aren't very fond of me from teen years though, I was not a nice young man and we will just leave it at that.

i found 2 of mine on here. one i'm still in contact with and he has a normal profile but his pics were awful so i gave him some advice on how to do better pics, he did a good job of them. dunno if he's met anyone off here or not.

the other has a female profile despite being a guy, which is creepy to me (after my experience with him) but he may have just filled the profile gender in wrong.

Nope....he knows I'm on here and is best suited to not tread on my territory.
I stay away from his.
Mutual respect.

A female friend of mine in NY who is divorced recently went on Match.

She saw my ex & sent me the link.

We laughed our a$$es off.
Then we got scared.
We agreed, if all the men online are as delusional as him, that is who she was meeting ( & who I used to meet)

There are 2 sides to each story, sometimes one side is Fantasy Island.

On a 6+ year-old thread...

After breaking up with my GF, she turned up in my matches here. I won't lie; my initial reaction was to fold like GSP had just shovel-kicked me in the nuts. I quickly got over it, though, and told myself something along the lines of, "GTFO it, Arlo!"

I already spent a wall of text talking about seeing my ex on POF 10 years later so I won't get into much detail here...

I was going through the Meet Me pics, hitting check mark or x and on one pic I stopped for a second thinking that guy is really cute and likable and I hit the check mark. 10 seconds later the guy messages me and I have no idea who is is but he knows me then I find out its a guy I used to date and really liked but he dumped me. His profile was great and it described the guy I used to know. We talked a lot the first couple days and met a couple times but it fizzled for various reasons.

I catch myself every week or so visiting his profile and reading it (with my settings set so he can't see I look). I'm so pathetic about it. I know I need to let go and I've been dating other people but geez it sucks. One of these days I'm going to cave and message him, I just know it.

One of my friends was on Match. She noticed one of my past boyfriends was on it. She showed me the profile. He wasn't being completely dishonest. He had added a few inches to his actual height.

I can't understand the point of lying about your height. As soon as you meet and see the guy is shorter than you it's so obvious he lied. Back in my younger years I went out with someone online who lied and said he was 5'9 when obviously he was shorter than 5'8 because I was taller than him. He was a nice guy but I couldn't get over the height issue. For me height is the most important physical characteristic of a man I'd date and it's just a waste of both our times if you lie.

I know a woman who lied about her age (my cousin), said she was 27 when she was actually 37 and ended up dating a guy who was 22. She got pregnant, he moved in and then one day he was shocked to meet her 21-year-old daughter who told him her mom's real age. Now it's 8 years later and my cousin is really starting to show her age. I guess lying works for some people.
