Hey divorcedgirl...the scammers from Nigeria message men too...the sad thing about that is...there are still fools out there who get taken by the Nigerian porn spam.

Yes ... Baby Boomers.com; BBPeopleMeet.com; Love and Seek.com; Yahoo Personals; and Match.com; and they were all a waste of time. Am considering E-Harmony, but hesitate because you can't choose the guys you want to contact; the site chooses them for you, presents your profile to them, and they contact you if interested. What's wrong with this picture?

Yeah I am on more than one dating site and this is the only free one I've found. But the other one is for members of my religion, so I'm willing to pay. But it doesn't have the forums and activities that this site does.

I have never paid for a dating site. With all of the forums out there, who needs to pay for it.

I met my last BF on a ecommerce forum of all places.

Yes, and I am still on it. I did manage to get a lifetime membership there. Scary eh. If I had to pay month to month tho I don't know if I would still be there. Only for the funds part of view. If I had money I would. However it is more like a friendship site than a dating site. It also has message boards, im's and a chat room. I have also met some really cool people there that are now good friends of mine.


And now one of these days I am going to go to a pof event.

Yes, and I was surprised at the lack of response by the women. Even when I ask for any feedback, good or bad, I got nothing. It just proves that my confusion is not just me.

I have paid for too many sites, I always come back to POF. The forums are the best on the net. You have a great service here.

never paid for it, but I have liberally abused many a Free Trial. Of all the pay sites I've seen, Match.com is the only one worth the greenbacks. Otherwise, just go here.

Yes...and the odd thing that exist...you're baited! False or fabricated profiles abound. Payed for a month, nothing, then all of a sudden you're 'contacted'. So, being the curious beings' we are, end up paying another month's worth to find who they are. Then no response from the 'contacter'. Its been proven that fake profiles keep baiting us all on ALL dating sites. And i mean ALL of them folks. They bait you into renewing with false profiles. Think about it for a second...'who' ends up contacting you? The match you set your limits or parameters to. Be aware...I speak from experience.

yes. I am on 8 sites, mostly the free offers but I have paid on several.Mainly, I paid when I got a good hit but I couldn't respond without a membership then I cancel like one month later. I figure it into the cost of my social life like new clothes, nails, hair, etc. I can't believe how many single men pay for several sites. I see lots of folks on more than one. I like POF because it is free and the forums... seems like real people talking. Also, I like the honesty of what people are looking for. You can't always tell on other sites... some have better profiles than others.For my area.. cupid.com has the rattiest male members so I avoid it now. The only thing that frustates me with POF is when I go to look at matches... there are not enough for my area so it goes to state level. I'm not interested in dating someone 8 hours away (unless he is very rich and has a private plane!) LOL And when you do to look at someone it brings you back to people who were on close to the last match. For bigger cities,probably not a problem.
Plus... I like to see if a sent message was read or unread deleted.

I have naively paid for a dating site in the past, but soon learned it's just about as frustrating as paying for dinner and drinks with a category five clinger! I think you'll find a quantitative reduction in those subscribing to yours because it's a free site and offline folks want bang (pun intended...j/k) for their bucks!
But this site has a quality that makes it more appealing to me than any other site. This goes for the quality of potential mates as well. I hope I do find "the one", or we find each other. And I hope it's trolling in this cyber sea called Plentyoffish.com.
You ever wonder if newbies that google dating sites look at POF and think...hmmmmmm...what's this? Plenty off-ish? Ample wierdos?
Anyway, it's amazing for this American ex-goalie to see the multitudes of absolutely gorgeous Canadian women on this site. American women, you're gonna have to step it up a bit! I know you can do it! lol. Anyway, thanks for being here!

yes, I paid for a year of eHarmony. Got lots of matches from their opinion but they were definitely not my type. Will never pay for another again. I think they don't send you matches to get more money out of you
