Two of the options that are available under basic search are conflicting with each other. I joined this site because I would like to make new friends. So when I search for people I select friends from the list in one of the filters. But then there is another filter right next to it regarding dating/relationships. Since I don't want any of that I don't check any of the boxes, and then the filter shows up as "any". So when i press search I get people who are looking for a relationship or casual dating.

Basically, I just want the people who are not seeking a relationship or any kind of commitment, but the filters won't let me narrow the search down to that.

Or maybe there is a way and I haven't figured it out yet. If there is , let me know. ty

There is a 'not seeking relationship' option, I'd suggest this as appropriate.
You need to accept that POF is essentially a dating site, not an offshoot of Facebook or Twitter et al - the intended function is totally different.

My Basic Search works fine - this might be a USA problem?
Give it a day or so & try again......
