Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

I like the forums on POF because I like the different view points from all different people, young and older. I date from here from time to time. Sometimes I want to know what everyone thinks about something...and sure enuff you'll get all kinds of answers...its fun.

I'm here for the forums. Dates are not so great but forum topics are pretty good. It's a great source to hear different point of view from people in your world. I recommend the horrible date stories. I still remember a few from 7 years ago!

I'd love to be here only for the forums ( i'm a perpetual lurker), however, since i use pof mainly on my phone through the app, it's not an option. I can only view forums while on a computer.

*sigh*

How can you enjoy the forums if heated posts keep getting erased/deleted? Then all you have left is fluff and gripes.
That's hard because as I said, I'm attracted to folks who communicate well and can keep their composure in heated debates. I can't tell that if there's nothing much to talk about.


I feel the same way, but I guess around here people like to keep things light and predictable. There's only so many "I'm not getting any replies" threads one can read and respond to.

I've been laughing for the last couple of days having just discovered the forum.
Comments and topics cover a really, really, really wide range.....some topics are just downright preposterous, some are really silly, other are serious and then there are the ones that are just RE-DONK-U-LOUS!


Most entertaining indeed....
Pass the popcorn please!

So much more interesting than the potential dates that may or may not be out there. It is the best forum on the dating sites I feel.

Enjoy.

Technoartisan- I still have a little hope there might be someone here, but I haven't had a lot of luck here either, the forums are mostly why I stay at this point.

Pizza? I've only found the popcorn and beer nuts... and the beer.
Geez, they're hiding stuff on me. How about Buffalo chicken wings too?

I'm only here for the forums. My profile is hidden so it's only
available via the forums.

I have noticed I get more mail now than I did before I hid my
profile.

I admit to wasting time here and sometimes I read entire threads
just because.

The forums often provide better insight into a person's genuine thought process than does their main POF narrative. They might well profess all 'kissy-kissy' in the 'bait' section, but involve them in frank give-and-take on some of the more contentious topics found in the various forums - and watch out! :o) That, plus the depth of discussion rarely goes beyond dew on a butterfly wing. Light entertainment at best. Sometimes, though, it takes more than a beer and slice of pizza to quell the queasy feeling one experiences after reading some of the thoughts expressed here. :o)

A great place to learn about social dating world and best to know my single world environment. It is a wonderful place for sociologists and psychologists pl ay ground. I do both but more of being on the forum.

I have been messaged at least four times while participating in the forums, I think a couple times with a picture and a couple times without one so it serves it's purpose. Most of the time however it is just a great time killer.

Like you, I came looking for a date. Once I realized how the people on here really have no intention of dating, I started really enjoying the forums. Now I come here for them, and nothing else, as I know I will never find anyone here anyway.

I gave up on dating and consider POF to be one of the worst of all the sites, but I still come to the forums. I dont usually start posts because they get shot down within hours, but it is interesting to add to the advice, try to be NICE to people here and read up on what others are going thru. I've learned some stuff.

There's ALOT of mean-ness here, so you have to sift thru the anger to get to the gems. There's actually alot of good advice, and good, solid in your face advice is a great thing, but the anger and assumptions that come with it from many here are not.

Pick and choose, grab the meaningful stuff, leave the spew.

VolcanoKing, the reason they shoot so many new threads down is because some of these people have been here for ten years and to them everything is redundant. Don't take it personally. And you quit dating? Seriously? If you had to give up I might as well surrender right now . . .

I browsed through some of the forums and comments this morning. Very interesting!!! It is a good way to express thoughts and get feedback.

Maybe this is a better way to meet than the "search" option....boy, that is getting redundant.
