I am amazed that first this site is absolutely free....second, that I found it through a friend.

I am not lying when I tell you if you find a dating site without my name on it....they just hadn't made it yet. Then a friend sent me the link to this site.

Of course, i dreaded filling out yet ANOTHER profile but was late, i was tired....who'd care? Well, someone did.

I have met a woman from POF that,short of being over top goopy and mushy, is perfect as you can be and still be humble and respect commanding.

I messaged her never really expecting a reply, afterall, someone accepting someone like me nevermind actually loving me was a miracle never to did.

We messaged eachother back and forth....took advantage of POF's IM. Moved up and beyond to phone calls, meeting the first time for dinner, and several weeks later....we are not only in love with eachother in a good old fashioned way but are making arrangements for our wedding and future children.

Thank you POF for being the ONLY DATING SITE THAT PUTS LOVE BEFORE MONEY. Tammy and I thank you for everything that got us together on POF and for our future all do to you here on POF.

I would like to say that it can happen, you can meet the right person. I have only been on this site for a short time and I have only gotten a few replies from my ad. It is hard for me to meet that special person because I am overweight and a mother of two daughters. But I got a reply from a person on here. And after talking for a little bit, we decided to meet. And yes I am now very happy with that relationship. He was everything and more that he said he was. I was looking for someone to share my life with, and now have found it. Michael is very careing, and everything that I wanted in a relationship. I really never thought that it could work because I know that sometimes people lie about who or what they are. But I guess God was watching and sent me my angel. Michael is great and we have been together now for over a month, and still going strong. We are learning who each other is. And sharing everything. When you least expect it you can find that special person. You just have to believe and it can. I know we havent dated long but I thank God. That I could find someone so nice and gentle. Thank you plenty of fish and hope others can find happiness also. JUst believe and be true and you can find that someone also.. Thank You......Irishpixie1968

I think even more people meet on here than is bein admitted in the forums. Just last night I went to meet gixxerj for the first time after talking almost since I first signed up. I actually wish I could remember which one of us contacted the other first and what the message said 'cause as of about 2:30 this afternoon, we're officially dating. It's a pretty perfect match, too; we're both from small towns in Iowa, like to do the same things for fun, and have similar family histories (farm related).

And the funny thing was, about 2 or 3 weeks ago, I was ready to completely give up on finding a guy. You never know when it could happen to you.

Someone emailed me Tuesday and we met Friday. Nice chat, lots of laughs and interest. We've talked and emailed every day. Not knowing where this will go, but I can say I'm already losing interest and may soon change my profile to email/chat only. He is that rare combination of wit and intelligence and not only gets my offbeat humor but gives it back and challenges me on it. Oh, and much better looking than his picture, which is a nice surprise. We're planning our next date and I know I'm looking forward to it. BTW, he was a perfect gentleman, quick hug at my car and that was it.

met the guy i have been with for about 8 months on pof, in the chat room actually ( and yes we have met in person, obviously, as you can see by my pics) its working out great. he'll be moving here soon, so YES it is possible to fall in love with someone you meet online ( though the first few ppl you get involved with tend to not work out lol, i just view those as test runs before you find the real thing) anyhow, just wanted to share :) ~Lexi~

You would have to put me down as a POF success story. After receiving a simple "I love your profile....just wanted to say hi" email from Autumn2006 in June, we have talked every day. She flew to Michigan for a week visit in August, and I am planning a visit to British Columbia for another week together in November.

We had an amazing week in August, actually hitting it off better than either of us could have dreamed of!! We are currently up to 3 phone calls a day, and another hour a day on messenger, not to mention the numerous texts!!

She is truly an amazing woman and continues to surprise me everyday.

I have a success story to share!
First of all, when coming on to this site, I talked with many a feel for the place. After a while I had a few regulars I liked to chat with on a daily of the regulars was close to home....we met after a few months of emailing....we became good friends but i was leary...he was a hometown boy...HOW COULD THAT EVER HAPPEN?

Our wedding date is set for July 7, 2007....(we have known each other for a year and a half)
I just come back here to see how some folks are doing but other than that...who knew this would actually work!
Thank you POF!.....sounds so corney but its true!
Best of Luck to ALL!

I posted my profile in december 2005, a few day later I got msg'd by navynesop. We msg'd on msn from december until July 2006 when he moved here to Nova scotia from British Columbia. Military posting not for me LOL. We met in person twice during those 8 months for a few hours each time.
Now that he is here we have been dating and things seem to be going well. Have I found LOVE? Who knows only time will tell. Both he and I are taking it slow i guess.
Sometimes I am not sure how he feels but i know i really care about him and hey he's still around so i can't be that bad. LOL

It does work!! I mean I feel sooooo much younger than I did before I joined.

This wasn't exactly my intention...but hey I have discovered the 'fountain of youth' here!

I think there was an episode in the Twilight Zone movie years back about the fountain of youth.

Who would have thought? was just around the corner!

It's like going back and reliving High School all over again! The same immaturity, cliques, popularity contests, superficiality, and what-not! I guess some things never change. Heck maybe that is why we are as single as back in good ol' High School, eh?

I met a really nice little Christian lady. It is a long story. Some little gal was sending me notes. I got talking to her and told her I was going to go to the ALPHA COURSE at a church. She said she goes to church too. Then I found out her church is the same as the place I am going to start this Alpha course. So she said she will come with me to the course. Good thing she did because I would have been really intimidated and embarrassed going by myself. It was a free meal at 6:00 and the course afterwards. I have a friend now sit with me and eat supper with there and take the same course with me. Wow, cool I made a friend and I didn't even have to go out and get drunk at the POF singles parties. There is something for every body here .

^^^I don't have a relationship success story per sa, but I have met many friends here at Pof. And I wanted **Kookies to know that she is counted as a blessed one. I met here almost a year ago. In these forums and we cliqued right away. We are sister-friends and she knows that I care about very much. I consider that a success story.

^^^and **KillerSmooch I am very happy for you and I hope this works out for you for the long term. It truly sounds like a good basis for a relationship..I have read many of your wise words in here. And you sound like you are ready to move on .. God bless and take care of you and yours..We are here..hope you stop in every once in a while to say hi..Optim aka LD

Notice how 9/10 success stories are posted by women?

Lovemysox is actually quite attractive.

Yep, even for people much older than you.
