I'm new to the site but I've already met someone here who I'm happy to be entangled with. We're compatible in a lot of ways and have many commonalities in our lives besides our shared interests.

It's been fun, funny, amazing so far... I feel safe with him, comfortable, alive, and familiar.

We're trying to take things slowly. LOL

And there isn't any secret really.

I flirted with him, we e-mailed, then talked on the phone, texted, and finally met in person.

He was the second guy I met face-to-face from this site. I had plenty of offers in real life too.

But there was a comfort level established with this man in our interaction prior to meeting. And once we met, it was like we already knew each other.

I can't see the future, but where ever this goes, I feel blessed to share in this experience with him. Even if the romance faded for any reason, he is someone I would definitely want to remain friends with.

i do agree on most are very picky on outward appearances and very disrespectful on here to others. while most in here are only looking for one thing, some of us are not, and are actually looking for a long term relationship. i would talk to anyone that did message me, pic or not. i have not had a good relationship on here, cause most go by looks only and dont take the time to know someone as a person

Have been in my eyes quite successful on POF, yes I am single right now but have had a couple of relationships. One 2 years and another 1 1/2 years along with several short term relationships of a couple months.
Where is the problem with finding someone permanent, well since I am the common factor is all of them I guess it is me. LOL
Commitment issues, who knows????
Takes patience, a fairly thick skin and a good attitude to make POF work, no miracles here for anyone and it is not easy.

And for the men complaining about having no luck on here, take a look at my profile. I am a 55 year old smoker with more than a few extra pounds that is not going to win any contests based on looks. If I can do it anyone can. LOL
Like I just read on here "be interested to be interesting".

One of the first people I ever messaged on here replied within minutes. We chatted for maybe an hour and then moved the conversation over to Skype. And talked for 12 more hours.

We were together for about a year.

She hates me, but that's beside the point.

I wouldn't change meeting her.

Other than that, no. I met her the first day I signed up for POF. After we broke up, I dated for a month or two and then met someone IRL. (no credit to POF for this one.)

Outward appearances are very important and all we have to go by initially. Why would we bother to meet in real life with someone who doesn't appeal visually?? Taking time to know someone happens after there is a spark of interest and attraction. That is normal and natural. Nothing is real until you meet and sometimes not even then!!! Women in particular are very savvy about picking up info from facial features.

How many men have you actually met in order to find a few good ones even though you are not interested in them romantically or vice versa, it seems. Just curious. Some people give up wading through "a pile of crap" to find someone interesting eligible and attractive, especially women. I know a couple of gals that have met hundreds of men and not found a match. Not just from POF but other sites.

Well...I've had at least two LTR's that I met here on POF....

As a matter of fact, I was friends with one of those exes who has since come back into my Life...and now that we're BOTH in a different place, it seems like there MAY be something new there...

More will be revealed as time goes on I guess....

Who knew?

Long-lived threads like this one can be very interesting at times. I posted on this one 2.5 yrs ago, not too long after the final break-up of a 2.5 yr relationship with a man I met through the POF forums. Which was my second LTR met through the forums. When I last posted on this thread I was hoping to find a 3rd relationship from POF but here I am years later and still ambivalent. So I guess my answer is 'yes' I've had a good relationship with someone I met through POF but not confident there will be another.

Nope. I met one, but we didn't hit it off. We became friends, but I can only take her in small doses. After that, I have yet to meet with any other. She does tell me about all the others- are guys THAT strange? I knew a few others, (friends of my now ex) that were on here, and they told me stories about all the weird guys they met. I did meet a few of them- they were JUST as screwy as they were described to me. I wouldn't own up to knowing them. What, they saw in them, I have no idea. And I always thought they were pretty level headed. When I started out on here, I thought that it would be easy for me to meet a lady. Women that have known me for years, think that I'm pretty reasonable. I'm still friends with them. If they had issues with me, I doubt that they would call, just to shoot the breeze with me. A best guess is, that I don't present a challenge to most. I'm predictable. (Read boring) Oh well.

Not myself. My daughter met her husband six years ago, and two babies. They are a happy married couple. She's the one that suggested I get a profile here.

It looks like POF stands for Plenty Of Failures. I don't expect the site to be shut down because of lack of single people anytime soon.

The problem with any dating site is people are looking for and expecting to find a totally perfect person who happens to live in their area-no matter how much some claim to be looking for someone who is just "perfect for me"-which is a crock of BS. Then people get a stick up their butt when a totally perfect Prince Charming or Cinderella who is meant to be with them (in their minds) doesn't magically fall and land on their lap when they log on to their computer.

Ay! Forgot the milk for the coffee. On topic, I don't want a prince charming, I'm not six years old. I think flaws come with every human being (dogs, and cats are exempted from this flaw thing) lucky me I'm more mobile than I was a few years back, my kids are grown and can pretty much fend for themselves. I am not bitter, nor do I have endured the hardships of dating, this by my own choice. I can stop what I don't like immediately, so I really don't waste my time and effort. I live an uncomplicated life ( according to me, though that depends on the opinions of those close to me.)

There's this one highly elusive cyclists that lives in a place that's not on my map, that I would really like to have a cup of not so hot coffee, don't really enjoy getting burned specially when I'm bursting into laughter.

The real question should be "How many people have even gotten a date on this site?" I wish there was a way to see how many guys and girls on this site never get a single date. I bet the number would blow our minds. I would be willing to bet that out of the hundreds of thousands of people on this site, the monthly percentage of dates generated is probably around 5% of the total number of subscribers.

The woe is me is deep in this thread, I'm sure you'd be surprised at how many do get dates, or whatever it is they want from this site. I'm also sure there are plenty who aren't getting dates in real life either. It really doesn't matter what anyone posting has as a score card number, what you are looking for is how it works for you. If you aren't happy here and need to whine and vent, wouldn't leaving make more sense?

I met a couple of guys from POF in the past that were okay but nothing special. Had more success with another site and the standard seems to be higher there. No names.....

I've been on POF for 7 years and have yet to have more than 2 dates with anyone I've met. So, yeah, anyone who has some magic dust they can toss my way it would be appreciated lol But all the guys I've met are still here too -- I guess they just weren't looking for me :(
