for some reason, the site has changed the location for the photos it posts at the top of forums for me to look at. It used to be ladies from my area who would say no. Now its hotties from Illinois (hey, you dudes got some attractive ladies out there. Don't be such a friggin' hog).

I see that whasamatta got her holiday wish. She's been calling for her own ouster, now she can feel popular and part of the cool kid crowd who get sent to detention. Congrats, baby!

^^^"for some reason, the site has changed the location for the photos it posts..."

I mentioned that happening to me a while ago. It used to show local women at the top, and now it shows only women in the Vancouver area, which is about 2,500 miles away. A little far to go for a first meet coffee. Another poster mentioned she flew across the country for a first meet, but that's not my cup of tea-or should I say cup of java. I don't know of any way of correcting that. Does any POFer know how to change that?

What a trip.

Not only do I see pretty ladies 2,500 miles away, they're between 20-30 years old.

Sorry, I don't care how youthful she is, I still ain't flyin' that far for java.

Sure, I'll click and take a peek though :)

I never thought I would be griping about sitting home alone on xmas, with the what feels like every rotorooter guy cleaning my insides while my guy is in the hospital in another state while I am doing a job interview over the phone holding a bucket. Man, my luck has got to change! *toasting you all with my bottle of immodium* Merry Christmas!

That was my Christmas medication for about a week leading to Christmas. My daily holiday routine was washing all of the bedding and couch cover, and cleaning any erroneous stains around.

No RANT today

No rant today, only gratitude for the spirit of the season and time spent with family and friends.

It's a dating site. Of course people lie about who they are and what they expect. POF is like a delusional wonderland. Anytime I have gone on dates with people who have had bland profiles, they seem a lot more intriguing than those with the exciting one. This is POF not Instagram.

the nice thing about standards that keep you out of dating...you can't ever be blamed for the failure of a date.

I'm getting sick and tired already fo reading profiles written by women who think they're god's gift to men, or somehow entitled to some totally insane fantasy ideal they've conjured up in their minds. People will hate me for aying this, but eff it - some girls are just stoopid ****es.

I was browsing girls in my area earlier tonight and found a profile from a girl I'd messaged last time I was on the site. Back then, she was bemoaning the lack of men in our town with 'good morals.' I'd messaged her to say hello and maybe strike up a friendly conversation. What I got back was a message simply saying 'you are not what I'm looking for'. No explanation why. No 'thank you for messaging me'. Just 'No. Bugger off.'

So, a year later, she's STILL whining that she can't find anyone good enough for her, and complains that the 'standard of men' in our town is 'very low'.

Uh... sweetie, I hate to break it to you, but you're clearly an effing IDIOT. You rejected me and god knows how many other guys at a glance, and now you're crying because you can't find anyone to take you to the ball. AW DIDDUMS.

Entitled little princesses like this make me sick.

If that is how you feel, get off this site.

Well, let's see....

Women, that are married...but separated are still married and are not available for dating...yet they disagree !
Women who buy into this Upgrade account, and only allow men that pay for Upgrade to contact them.
Women who use the meet me feature, knowing that we're required to pay to find out who she is.
Women with ridiculous settings on their messages, such as the length of message one can leave.
Women with profiles that are as long as a Novel.
TROLLS
People that have been here more then 2 years.

^ There seems to be a common theme running through your grievances...

Hey, did we ever get to the bottom of whether or not someone can just turn gay?

*Below: Less talk, more pics. And for crying out loud, put some imagination into them.

For God's sakes don't answer her. She's been trying to get me in a French Maid's outfit; sent to prison....

I'm pretty sure she's determined to try me as a test subject in her little experiment.

Newsflash - many of the people in here are "escorts" and pimps, talking to each other and pretending to not be, and taking the opportunity to assimilate information on people's dating attitudes and stances to help them in their marketing. I learned naively that I need to occasionally check certain "escort" sites, and I frequently find that the pics there are the same as some in here. Also, quite a few of them are 'shemales'...

...well, unless lots of people are stealing pics from these escort sites and using them in POF.

^ Well no, to be honest, I wouldn't say nasty. They are real people too, just like you or me. And have every right to be here or there and do whatever anyone else has a right to do to live. But...my post was only referring to some questionable and dishonest practices* - like being on a dating site but actually marketing yourself. This accounts for some of the anomalous experiences that people find frustrating or confusing in here.

*(Or not being upfront about your total gender status...though that one is at least partially understandable, given that there is always some intolerance of some sort to be found.)

I agree---anything fake stinks IRL as well as OLD, but as far as transgender stuff goes, who am I to judge? Everyone has a right to be happy :0)

Gross misrepresentation exists in both genders in OLD as well with transgendered & cisgendered people :0(

It is the misrepresentation, rather than the gender that is upsetting IMO.
