Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

Welcome to Plentyoffish's Forums

Here are a few tips to help you get going ... and to make your (and others') stay enjoyable.

  1. The best thing to do when you arrive is to go to your own Local Forum and introduce yourself saying: "I'm New", in the thread called: "Introduce Yourself Here" ...

  2. No threads looking for sex, one night stands, affairs or dates.

  3. No broadcasting for contact, your profile and email are for that purpose.

  4. No bashing, libel, insults ... nor intense profanity and disgusting sex-based comments. That will be cause for immediate removal of your posting privileges and/or account.

  5. Please do not post threads or posts warning others of previous dates or meetings you have had in order to embarrass, slam or humiliate them. That is potentially considered libel and can put you or the site at legal risk.

  6. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the posting rules found as the first thread in any forum.
