I have a dude with the Pof appPage 1 of 1    
Hi, everyone. Im spanish, so I'll try to speak in english.
I broke with my girlfriend one month ago, so I decided to open a profile in Pof to meet new people, not cheating, just for not being alone because Im not looking for a new relationship right now.
The problem is that everytime I enter the app, I see my ex girlfriend's profile in the nearest profiles. So, I can't forget her and every time I open Pof I'm wondering where she'll be and with who.
I could block her profile, but so she'd know I have visited her.
Is there any way to do this without she couldn't know I have visited her profile?

Your profile has been open for over a year. Perhaps you meant "unhid".

No way for you to stop seeing her profile (easily; I believe there's a way with different browsers and/or adware blocks).

My profile is unhidden.
I could hid it and she could 't see my profile, but I still see her profile and anybody could see me because I would be hidden.

You can look at her page without her knowing it. Go to "Edit Profile", then "mail settings", then say "no" to the question "Allow users to see that you've viewed their profile". Not sure what good that'll do ya, though. I don't know of a way to block a user from your view unless there has been an email exchange. At that point, you can choose "block" and you won't see her page again. If there's another way, it's one of which I'm not aware.

I can help with part of it....go in to your account settings ( in edit profile) and set your profile to not show when you've viewed a profile. Then she cant see that you've viewed her. You can delete people from your 'Ultra" match list, but not sure if you can have them removed other than that.

Nah, if you block them from a message, it only blocks them from sending any further messages; their profile pic will still pop up on various pages.

So... There isn't any way to block her from viewing her profile in the miniatures every time I open the app in my iPhone?
At least... To block her, I can put my profile in hidden mode, visit her profile, block her and then turn back in unhidden mode, right?

I don't think that'll help. If he already saw hers, it's not going to come up again like on OKC & Match. And by now he's moved way down the list from hers. At this point, no need on that...

No... that's not blocking. To block her, write her a quick message. Then click on the Sent Message, and you'll see a link that says "Block User". Click on that. You can only block someone in which there's been any communication with.

Cool thing is, she won't know its you. It'll be blank. Your profile info won't show up. Just someone by your user name.

With that said, the Block isn't 100%. She's not going to come up in your searches or in the Meet Me. She may still show up in thumbnails though.

Totally blocking out a profile from browsing photos or 'found nearby' cannot be done unless there is a specific appeal made to management about special circumstances (i.e. a restraining order or court mandate) and proof is given. It doesn't happen too often because the terms of what gets defined as harassment or threats needs to be quite specific, and it usually is solved by one or both of you losing the privilege to be an active member on POF.

If even the mere sight of her photo gives you discomfort, it's probably time to seek some counseling. It's a photo. That is ALL it needs to be. Heck, you don't even know for sure if she is the one behind the profile - she may be letting a friend use her image to search out potentials. Learn how to shed old baggage and realize life goes on - with OR without her around.

Blocking via messages only blocks them from messaging you. You will still see their profile pic and they can still see yours. They will still appear in searches and in Meet Me. They will still pop up randomly on various pages. There is no way to block a person from seeing your profile unless you hide it. You will still see there's.

Unless you use adware/different browsers. Apparently there is a way to block their ad from appearing.

You can block their image from appearing by right clicking on their pic and selecting the relevant option (this is using adblocker or similar).

I blocked a gal 2 years ago. Didn't see her in searches. Ended up seeing her in thumbnails at the top after a while tho.

I feel for ya OP.

There's one gal whose photo raises my blood pressure, and not between my legs either.

Makes me want to throw the remote at the TV screen in disgust...

So try another dating site. POF is not the only game in town.

maybe message her with tons of naked private photos and she'll get mad and block you, IDK, talk to admins, there has to be something you can do.

or you can just message me awhile and she won't even bother you anymore. like.. at all..

Revoskeepnus has a corny photo. Or maybe some guy asked to see her ear.
