Oh NOW we see the real reason, nothing to do with morals or complaints. They've made it available to upgraded members only, so it was all about money! PoF you should be ashamed of yourselves.


back to DHU and OKC for me!

Did you expect anything better from a site that uses 'Porn Star' Sara Jay as a source for dating advice?!

You can try and contact POF at csr@pof.com. Don't hold your breath for an answer though. They don't normally announce any changes to functionality and they very rarely explain it once it does happen.


The site owner makes so much money from POF that he does not care what we think.

I don't see IE as a jungle of scammers. I've chatted with people and met one. So, that scammer excuse is thin. It would be nice to get an answer for this. Not being able to search for IE is limiting.


It's called, "i think you people are losers so i'm gonna make as much as possible off you" marketing. POF is the only one scamming here.

POF is so dodgy and corrupt its a laughable lesson in how not to run a website.


Dodgy yes, but they have made a fortune off POF so they know what they are doing, until they price themselves out of existence.

Want to see a lot of Intimate Encounter profiles Go to Edit Profile and set what you are looking for to Intimate Encounter. Then have a look at My Matches and Meet Me. The thumbnails of others on IE profiles are more IE profiles.

Giggity.

they now want you to pay for the privilege of seeing how fake 99% of the intimate encounter people are.

something that we have been finding out for free in the past. just like I'm from the government and I'm here to help you.

its justlike that malarky they pulled with "expanded" profiles.

methinks there are too many overpaid people at the administrative level.

IE is garbage anyway, not something you'd want to pay for. There are better sites for hookups than POF. POF should learn from other sites. I was on match, and it's nowhere near as colossal as POF has become. The reason.....it's free. Looks like OKC will be growing sooner rather than later.

This just happened overnight, because it was working yesterday. Bunch of crap, especially giving users no notice of this change. This site has gone downhill a lot in the last year.

And IE isn't full of scammers - I've met several through it and had a great time.

Way to go POF... :(

It appears the Intimate encounter is now only available to the "upgraded" members. I remember when I signed up to this site it said...... 100% free, we don't charge and we never will........ Yeah it seems to be moving bit by bit to a pay site. It looks like the advertising revenue isn't enough now.

POF is becoming very poor at implementing changes to the site. They are really trying to push people to pay or leave the site. I don't use the IE option but I had a look and it's odd that they just removed it. Men and women both used it and now it's just another way for POF to try and get money out of ppl. With all the BS changes I've been looking at alternative sites. POF is simply looking to run itself in the ground!

Just a scam to get people to pay to look at intamate encounters, becoming a friggen porn site if they want to scam $$$ to look.

As of midnight Saturday night, in order to search for intimate encounters, one must be a paying member of POF.

However, there is an easy work-around this whole situation. In the future, if someone wants an intimate encounter, just sign up for DATING, and in the section on INTEREST simply say "intimate encounter. " With this method, anyone on POF can search for the intimate encounter just by searching for those words in the "INTEREST" section.

Of course, POF could get wise to this and try to block anyone who writes "intimate encounter" in the section on INTEREST, but then everyone could use some other code word such as intimacy or cuddling. The only way POF would be able to stop the search is if they tried to charge everyone who uses the website.

I'm sure most people have recognized by now that most women who say they are interested in cuddling are really interested in something else.

So if I was looking for an intimate encounter of sorts on here what way would be the best way to get my profile seen without it being in the wrong place andgetting people upset? Go with hang out/ casual dating or hang out casual dating? or am I better to go to one of the other sites mentioned by people here like OKC or DHC any ideas would be great. Thanks
