Funnily enough i've been thinking of leaving, had my 9th first date yesterday so a bit fed up with it now. I think I would of been better off if I never joined. The self esteem that ive lost means im not as good at the dating as I was when I started.

But how long do people give it before they just become 'forumites' and forget about actively looking for dates?


There is nothing wrong with just being a forumite and having a break from looking from time to time.

They say that sometimes someone will come along when you least expect it and in the most unusual circumstances.

Just the other day a very attractive woman with a huge cleavage asked me out when I held a shop door open for her.

My participation here is pretty half-arsed anyway, I'm not intensively looking, so I'll formally give up when I find someone, whether that be on here or somewhere else.

I will never leave.
I've had 500 women shagging me, just this week alone.

I must have a shower now.

Personally i tend not to bother with messageing to try and get a date on here any more and just like to use it for the Forums ,although that isn't to say i dont "View "the lovely ladies on here from time to time,it's just that i really can't be bothered that much with all the hassel of of trying to get a date so i don't think i shall be leaving here for some time to come as i really do like to read the "Posts"related to all the various different Topics raised and long may the site last !!

thats the thing with pof, it doesnt take up much space on your pc, so if you need a break, just take one, simply dont log on for a week or few weeks etc, it works for me :O)

Yep POF is getting that reputation for being a desperate site. Lots on here spoiling it for others .
Went on one date and I think she took her pics 20 years ago. Nothing like her pics at all.

I have been on this site since January 2007 and on other dating sites since January 2001 but still had no luck yet. I think the main reason is that there are more men on dating sites than women and so there is a lot of competition for women online and so not much chance of getting one online unless you are a rich guy and very good looking.
