Has anyone had a good relationship with someone on POF?Page 6 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
YES YES YES!!

I've had 2 very good relationships from here, one that lasted for about a year and a half, and now my current GF, which is going on 3+ years.

Trick was to let the ladies message me instead of me reaching out. I found that the quality ladies were the ones that took genuine interest in my profile and had the melons to send me a note. Of course, the better you can make yourself, the more positive the experience will be, regardless of the site.

I used average (and honest) pictures of myself, and most of the women who I ended up meeting always commented on how much better I look in person than in my pictures. I rarely had an instance where I didn't get a second date offer..........

I truly went on some great dates and met some very attractive and pleasant ladies here. Its been a very positive experience for me!

Not much success. Advice: stay away from the ones with no pics. There A REASON for the no pic. I found out the hard way. No harm done but a valuable lesson learned. Good luck.

Its funny that you ask that question, Its all in what you make of it and 95% of it is what the site is called plenty of fish,, And you are the catch of the day!!! Now whether you are the best that one person has ever had its all in part of the dating game. And it doesn't matter where you meet someone in the mall,, at the store ,, or even online. The fact remains the same:
HOW LONG CAN I TOLERATE THIS PERSON??

Before wanting to go out fishing again!!! You do the same when hanging out ,, clubbing or vacationing with girls guys night out!! You're gonna do it here as well.

You have this one life to live !! And you Can't renew like you Fix your Credit !!! So stay true to you Be your own super star and life will be so grand that you would be a friend and someone special to everyone you meet and your True And Number One FAN Is the person you give it all too without any doubt because like they say love is blind, It takes a strong man / woman to endure hurt. And never let it show because this is what it's all about loving life and enjoying it with someone who is truly a friend not your property and dating would be the easiest and best thing for you since sliced bread.

Yes, I have had two good relationships off POF. I wanted both to end in marriage, but what ended them was, we were not on the same page in life.

You ask for good advise, but , if you look at what I stated above, all my advise would be bad.

Had one that recently ended after 4 years. She wanted to get married then changed her mind, so that was that. I have a new GF that I also met on here, and a slew of them before the first one. Meeting people here isn't hard, it's meeting someone you want to spend the rest of your life with.

I'm still friends (like as in offline) with several girls I dated from here which I've known some for 5-6 years now, oh, and a couple guys I met as well that I'm friends with (in a very non-gay way... just thought I'd point that out).

Not sure how to answer... I had a relationship with the first man I met online for almost 1.5 years, and although I really enjoyed my time with him, he simply wasn't ready to give up chasing women. These dating sites are so much like a candy store for people needing a lot of attention, and he just couldn't stay away.

So was it a *good* relationship? I suppose so, in that we genuinely care(d) about one another. I just wish I were savvy enough at the time I met him to not have believed everything his profile said. lol I never would have dated him, had I known.

Yikes - the first one was an alcoholic (took me a few months to figure it out since he hid it pretty well), the second one had Borderline Personality Order (which meant I was either God's gift to manhood OR Typhoid Mary, depending on how he was cycling), another was a sexual deviant with a Cuckold fantasy and the last one had extreme anger issues along with adult ADHD - which means he had the attention span of a fruit fly and could be a mean son-of-a-b*tch with his hair-trigger temper.

Yeah, good times...good times...

If by "successful relationship" you mean dealing with a bunch of nut-jobs with emotional issues, dependency issues, substance abuse problems, anger issues and sexual deviants then by golly, the answer is yes. LMAO!


LOL..girl..that is not POF's fault.

Your picker is in need of adjustment...hang in there, and choose better mates. ;)

A lot of fun with various people, I gave many people a try that I didn't think I should but no one was close to a relationship. I got to experience things I never had and made some friends but there are just so many people here that I think it's a numbers game and you could lose out on some quality people because you get bogged down with crap. In other words, I think there are some serious missed opportunities here thanks to sleazy ass^ole%. The converse is also true. Men start to think women get a million messages but they are really looking for a slight modicum of wanting a connection.

Best of luck, it's numbers.

I met my boyfriend here on POF. We've been together for about a year, rent a place together (we're currently looking for a house to buy together), and we are discussing marriage in the near future.

It works if you're willing to meet people. In the end though, it's not POF's "fault" if your relationships with those you meet through the site don't work out. POF is simply a tool for meeting people, after the first meet, it's up to the two of you what happens.

Yes I have met a man on here that we are having a successful relationship with. We started dating in April 2012 and have dated many times. I always enjoy spending time with him. I have met many of his family and friends. I felt ready to date someone seriously after a divorce over 10yrs ago. We had a few rough spots but kept going. He is funny, we do lots of fun things that we both enjoy, and he let's me know everyday how special I am. Just keep the faith! Pray! Keep getting out there and keep conversations flowing. All the best! Greatheartgal

I love your name "maryapolis" very cute....anyway I'm back after a year and a half break from the site. I met a man on POF I love very much (so it is possible).....unfortunately we are not a match as far as our long term goals so I've ended that relationship but obviously I haven't given up hope I will meet the right man.

OMG there have been a couple of wrecks along the line here.. but there have also been a couple of good ones too ;)

People are people.. and few of us know what we want. That being told says we are only what we wanna be at the moment and time spent who we are. If it lasts.. great !! If it dont, then let it be on good terms. Thats all I got to say.

Still fishing for me.... 2 or 3 meetups with one of those leading to a 2nd meetup (then caputts) over several years!

Most of the women I talk to, if I they ever write back, stop writing after awhile. Almost like they are bored or just checking it out.

Its pretty disheartening to see so few relationships. I don't mean just friends. There seems to be some that last a few mo a couple a year & a couple longer. Of course this is just of ppl who are in forum who decided to answer so real kind of survey but I was a bit surprised.
