Which is the best dating site?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Cause it sure as hell ain't POF!

For a start, POF promotes age discrimination. I, as a 28 year old man, cannot see 18 year old girls.

LEGAL girls.

OK Cupid has about 12 profiles in my area.

Tinder is full of fakes and mutes.

Are we in a weird limbo period where all the dating sites are shit?

Btw, I work 10 hour shifts in a garage, I don't see women day to day.

if you move out of your parents' garage, you may have better chances :)

actually, I suspect phone apps are turning date sites into the next VCR. Its more instant. But if they fill with fakes too, maybe we'll have to try a new trend...picking people up in bars.

he's do better with the 18 yr old girls, considering his sense of humor. Mike Hock, wow, never ever heard that before over the phone. I guess Mike Hunt was too intellectual for him.

Now he's gone for greener pastures. Oh, such a loss! at least he can return back to the oil change garage, and practice pulling his plug and being a drain.

Try the dumpster behind 7-11, or maybe the one behind a porn shop, or maybe that rest stop on a lonely highway - look for the numbers written in the stalls. Yeah, all the classic places still work. Oh, you didn't want to put any effort into it...?

Its "age discrimination" when a nearly 30 year old man can't pick up on a girl still in high school.
No buddy, you aren't being oppressed because the red carpet isn't laying out for you to exploit very young girls for sex.

I still think POF is best just because of the pure volume of people on it and its the most wellknown. I signed up for a bunch of different sites when I first came back to online dating but POF has way more people in my area.

Most of my OLD experience has been from POF and Match. I had relatively better results from Match. More emails and dates along with a few short term relationships.

For me, POF has been the best dating site. I have met more men on POF. The best success has been with POF as well (ie - one three year relationship 2014-2017 and currently in one - January 2018.)

IMO, most of the time, the men I met on POF were on Match as well as other sites. I find POF site very easy to use in comparison to Match, OK Cupid, eHarmony, Single Parents Meet, Chemistry or Zoosk. But, that's just me.

When I got back into OLD in December, I did Match for approx four weeks. The site had changed so much from years ago, I did not like it. I tried eHarmony for a week - ugh. POF was.....simple. Now, POF does have its issues but all the sites do. There will always be pros/cons about most everything.

IMO, people need to try different dating sites and decide for themselves which one(s) suits them best.

I prefer meeting people offline. I don't think any internet dating website is any good. Most people I know that used POF, Match and other internet dating websites told me POF was worse. For example, they got more vulgar emails on POF. I know there are examples of people finding a significant other from internet dating. I guess once in a while people can find a piece of gold in a pile of trash. LOL.

There is some overlap. But that doesn't necessarily mean people are active on both Match and POF at the same time. Whenever I joined Match, I wouldn't delete or hide my POF profile. But I would be more active on Match since I was paying for it for a limited amount of time.

Recently on REDDIT, I saw a chart for most popular dating apps for 2017. Understand it doesn't mean it's BEST for you - it's merely what people are using ( or claim to use ) https://forums.plentyoffish.com/addpost.aspx?PostID=16691498&x=45&y=8

74% - Tinder
7% - OKC
5% - Grinder
4% - POF
3% - eHarmony
2% - Coffee Meets Bagel
2% - Match
<1 % - Bumble
<2% - All Others

Whichever one you find what you're looking for on is the 'best' one I'd say. It's a very individual preference. The only one that mildly worked for me was OKC - and by "mildly worked" I mean I met 2 boyfriends from there; one long-term and the other short-term. The others (Match, POF, Tinder, Bumble) all resulted in just a bunch of dates but no relationships.

none of them are. basically the internet is for lazy people who can't be bothered with relationships and need an easy way to hook up behind their partners back.

i think people seriously looking for someone else should go to the socials arranged, not just on POF but others sites. get out there and meet people, act like you're really interested in meeting someone else.

dunno if anyone else said that but i cba to read comments on here any more so excuse me if they already did.

I like POF best. I've been on several others and for people my age(64) POF is easily is as good or better than the rest .I met more people here and get more messages and dates than any of the other services I have tried.I've never tried Tinder but I'm not looking for a hookup plus I am too old that. I used to like OKC before they screwed the pooch by eliminating direct messaging.

Are there still speed dating events going on, or have they become obsolete, with so many options of meeting potential dates now via the internet? I never tried it, because I don't like the concept of having a short interview with a stranger to see if there's any chemistry or attraction, and hoping to be picked out in a line-up with a bunch of other guys who are competing for the same woman. Is Tinder the internet equivalent of speed dating?

"Are there still speed dating events going on"
I see adverts all the time for the Chicago area.

"Is Tinder the internet equivalent of speed dating?"
Absolutely not. Too different.

I thought about it myself. I think each pair up should have a few minutes. 30 seconds just isn't enough time to figure anything out other than whether you would want to sleep with them. I find that the women I would most want to sleep with after a brief encounter are usually the last ones I would want to marry.

All in all I like POF.
The forums have kept me here for years.

is that like Hershey's Kiss?

POF is free, and you can't beat that price. you can test out what works in a profile or photo for free. and then up your game in one of the paid sites.

I liked Ourtime when I tried it. I wasn't quite fifty yet at the time but was always attracted to older so went that route. It didn't end up in an actual relationship but I met a few decent people while on it.
There's actually a dating site called Grinder? I'm so out of the loop :-).
