Can you block someone from seeing you at all?Page 1 of 1    
Once you blocked him that took you off his favs list and he will not be able to add you again. The only time he will now see you is if you show up in his searches and stuff...or as someone that previously viewed his profile. He will not be able to check your log in times like he did when you were on his favs.

Beware that he can start a new profile at any time and re-add you...

the unfortunate side, when they removed the option for you too see who has you on their favorites, they removed your ability to remove him to accomplish what you want. It was great before, now you are at his mercy. All you can do is block him if he writes you.

OK so they removed it from your profile page where it was easily accessible. Thank you.

I am pretty sure that a person can go into the mail settings in their profile and choose if they want people to know you have viewed their profile. So if you haven't changed your mail settings and you viewed someone's profile, they definately would know you viewed them and vice versa.

Also, I think that when someone blocks you from messaging, it blocks you from viewing their profile too. I have heard this. What do you think? I have no idea.

Wrong. The only thing blocking does is to disallow that person from sending you a message; that's it. They can still see your profile and they can still see your posts in the forums.

I think it would be great to have blocking as an option, any time. Just insert the user's name, and they're blocked from contacting you, period. Why not? They don't have to know, it's the internet. I just don't want to have to see them. Hopefully blocking them would keep them from coming up on your matches too. It doesn't seem to be that difficult of a task, other sites do it.

Hey, if you block someone does it delete messages he holds too or does he get to keep those and it only auto deletes from my inbox?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure it deletes all the messages, both incoming and sent.

Yes, simply hide all your pics and no one is likely to bother going to your profile except a stalker or fellow Forummite. And "bad" email from a stalker is easy enough to deal with, with nothing more than a well trained mouse. New ones can be had for less than 10 bucks now if your current mouse is UNtrainable.

I think that maybe only paid members can currently hide their profiles completely.

I think if you block someone then they should have no right seeing your photos at all. I blocked a guy and some how he just start to talk to me again. Won't let me block him just ask if I want to upgrade. The guys a jerk. I would never date him again.

Yes. I have experienced this when someone has 'blocked' or I have blocked someone there is a pop up POF notice that says doing so will delete ALL message exchange between the users.
I have noticed that everything in my 'sent messages' & my conversation thread is then gone.

I am finding more and more things about pof that I do NOT like. This dude is creepy, and all "So, you're back online." It very unsettling and doesn't make me want to use this site. I feel I have to hide/unhide my profile... the fact that I BLOCK someone means I don't want them around, not just not message me. BLOCK ONLY APPLIED TO MESSAGES IS CREEPY AND UNSETTLING AND MAKES FOR A BAD USER EXPERIENCE, POF!!!!!!
Are other sites better? I don't want to set up an account just anywhere. I hate this scene that dating has become. It's all weird.

So I have a question about this "online status" thing when people are blocking.
Had a situation with a girl where we met for dinner and I thought it went well, it was a long drive for me too. But she met with a girlfriend of hers, we had dinner and both were laughing and it was a good time. Then we walked around a bit and they showed me the downtown area of their small town.
Then after I said bye and drove home I noticed she blocked me (this was on snapchat). So I send a message on here and she blocks me as well. No explanation, nothing.
I was pretty damn puzzled by this so I actually made a second account just to message her asking what happened? She sent one reply saying I was cheap with the tipping amount for the waitress, a few other things... I gave her a hug, which I thought was nice, and after she said like two times that she was cold as we were walking, because it was cold out, I offer to put my arm around her like hey, I'll keep you warm, but she pushed it away. And that's it, she blocks me again a few minutes later. So basically I'm thinking this girl is nuts.

But the point is I can still see her profile on POF, I mean the green username indicating she's online. Which is often. Even after she blocked me. And that kind of sucks. What I am wondering MORE about is can she still see that I'm online too?? Does she see my username in green showing I'm online, even after she blocked me?
This question I can't find an answer to on google searches or the forums here. I do wonder if she's checking her inbox randomly and just seeing that I'm online. And thinking of me "what an A-hole" or whatever she must be, every time.

The only thing blocking does is prevent a person from messaging you. That's it. Nothing else.

Hi,
I can tell you that when I have blocked someone, all messages to and from are deleted.
So I could not see if or when you have been online. I guess if I somehow found your profile, I might be
able to see if you are online now, I don't know. I have not tried that. But if she blocked you, all the messages between
you have been deleted.

Hi, thanks for that. I thought that's how the message deleting worked.
However have you ever viewed POF from a PC browser, or from your phone's using Desktop browser mode? If you are looking at your Inbox screen, it will show small green letters the names of people you have messaged in the past, who are online now. And even if a girl has blocked me, I can still see her name there when she is online.
That is what I am wondering about. Can she still see I'm online even after she blocked me? And just sits there knowing I'm online, haha. Probably to her frustration. Well I hope so because it gives me a little bit of evil satisfaction, if a girl blocked me for no good reason. That she has to still see my presence there :P

Keep reading ^^ that ^^ until you understand it.

Your profile is still view-able. Your online status is still available. This goes for the blocker and the individual blocked.
