Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

Thank you!

Could be a bunch of reasons, maybe found somebody else, maybe doesn't want to hurt your feelings, I have chatted with a few women on here and they just stop for some reason...I try not to over think it too much. Good manners would help a bit, but what can you do.

Good luck

Men and women do this - if someone loses interest it's common for them to stop responding. They can be blunt about it, or not. It's the same deal.

For the most part I believe that people do start off stating lack of interest, and then they get backlash, insulted, or someone who tries to fix/change themselves to stay in the running, or someone who ignores that you're not interested and continues to message. Some people can't deal with a person not being interested for some reason. Eventually they learn to just stop responding when they're no longer interested because it causes the least amount of grief.

Usually the more you talk to (assuming you can find more than one you have interest in) the less you notice the ones who drop out of rotation. Chalk it up.

Can be a few different reasons from losing interest to their wife walked in on them and they had to terminate quickly. Bottom line is don't waste the time or energy trying to figure it out. Move on to someone that is interested and available.

e4shan: You are young, slim, blonde and hot. If you actually make first contact with any of the millions (literally) of men using PoF who are lucky to get one reply in 250 messages, there is a darn good chance you will get a nibble.

I see you have a long list of filters. That's good; be picky about who you message, because you are in a pretty good position to be picky!
