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!

Anyone else only come here for the forums?Page 8 of 12    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)

Is that what you teach your kids, how to have good times and bad times and play both sides?


Is this directed at me?
If so....
None of your damn business what I teach my kids.
Wtf?

Yes...the forums also offer crackpots a little yip-yap.

I know you will recover, Helen.

In the meantime, it's great to have you back!

Thank you! And yeah, of course I will. Doing a lot better already.

It was a bit of a surprise to see quite so many familiar faces and monikers on returning - but a very nice one!

No, not directed at you. But when it comes to my damn business, it's my damn business when you 'take' my taxpayer dollars. If you do not take my taxpayer dollars, then none of my damn business.

I revert back to the "none of your damn business" then.

Im not sure what tax dollars have to do with POF forums but alas...
An open forum allows for all types of comment...regardless of validity...

Im tempted to start a thread entitled
'Who's tax dollars are you spending on POF'?
but I think it might be redundant....or at the very least 'wtf are you talkin' about?'

Edit to add: the forums offer much more than the 'only' part. Some are open to that, some aren't.

Not here solely for the forums, but also not pursuing. I enjoy the entertainment.

Pretty much here for the forums, dating in my area is painfully slim.
As well, I bought a huge case of popcorn and this place is the best for entertainment

I never understood why people watch reality TV.

But it must be something like PoF Forums.

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.

How could she take your taxpayer dollars? You two don't even live in the same country.

This might be the best thing I read on the forums today.

Forums are entertaining on here but I also come on here for dating as well. But mainly the forums are fun at times and other times a piss off as well then things get real heated.

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*

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.

I pretty much only come here for the forums anymore. No one even looks at my profile anyway.
