Some people will say different, but i love P.O.F. and met a beautiful lady ive been with several months now. Without P.O.F. i wouldnt have done that, and its always a fun site to hang on and see how people are doing, its much more than a dating site..........

No, POF doesn't seem to work. Of the twenty or so people in the last month I've contacted, only 3 have had the decency to even REPLY. Of those, 1 was downright rude, and the other 2 were disinterested.

That's just communications trying to find people to talk to -- I imagine if they're THAT selective about who they talk to, I'd have several orders of magnitude harder time find a "significant other".

On the bright side, even if I don't find friends/contacts/signifcant others here, I'll still have learned a few interesting things and it won't even have cost me a penny.

Has not worked for me either, but in my case it is understandable.

While it may work for women (I doubt it) it sure as hell doesn't work for men or perhaps I should say me. I have a killer profile, and most women are just gameplayers and like to play on the computer. They definitely are not serious in my opinion about meeting a man for even marriage and/or a long term relationship. So POF is an ego trip for many of them. I haven't even come close to meeting anybody desirable, and those that I do message, simply ignore the request for interest if any. Nah, POF is a sorry excuse for a dating site. I think also that becaue it is free, many feel they do not have any financial interest in their "search" and thus have very cavalier and trivial attitudes about meeting anybody. Many of the women on here need a board certified psychiatrist and/or a psychological counselor.

Maybe, maybe not...honestly I don't really care. Just be yourself. If people can't like you for you, oh well that's their loss. At the end of the day, never change YOU for anyone. Some take it seriously and some don't. My opinion, I guess it can work, but you might be here awhile...then again, every person is different as well.

musicman212...Trust me, I've learned to take pof as a grain of salt. Like people have stated, the fact that the site is free you're going to get a lot of people would just come here to past the time and whatnot. Also, people have a lot of choices and will sometimes overlook who could be the jem in the ruff. So that's why I say it's their loss. I cannot say this site does not work because I met my ex here. the site technically did it's purpose. It's up to the parties to make it work. In my situation I thought it would go somewhere but it didn't.

You've never discussed anything with me and you're probably projecting about the age issue. If you're thinking I'm suggesting you're nonsensical, lying, and stupid to boot, well, for once you're correct.

I can only WISH to have had similar erxperiences as those mentioned above but alas for me, it's been about a year now and all I've experienced thus far is MANY Read but never replied to or Read/Deleted :(

Do note that the only reason I am mentioning it here is only to give a more realistic version of what happens on this site :)

This is my second time here. I joined a few years ago and found it quite sucessful. Had some lovely dates and short term friendships. Had no problems at all.

Coma White, you're correct in what you say about some being married. My dear nephew who is 32 had a bad experience from this site a while back.

Talked to a lady for ages and decided to take her out for dinner. Evening went well..... drinks afterwards in a quiet bar then her HUSBAND turned up! She ran over to him and said "this guy wont leave me alone!"

My nephew felt the force of this man's fist many times. He no longer uses internet dating.

I am happy that some people have been successful finding a mate. I have not found anyone from this site. I think it is the area that I reside. There are not that many quality men in this area. When I first registered, I was receiving many email from prospects that did not fit my criteria. I have a variety of nice, good-looking, and ambitious men while living in Europe, but since, I have been back in the US...Nothing. I really think my perceptions have changed, and I don't think I would be happy with an American man.
