Well don't count it out because it hasn't yielded results for you. There are other free sites out there. And I get tons of responses and I'm in the US. To each his own. POF is a great site.

I'm in the US and I've been on pay sites as well as this one. I get plenty of responses, but the quality of responses on this site is poor compared to that of pay sites. I received inappropriate messages on sites like match and yahoo, but there seemed to be a lot more possibly legitimate people on those sites. 90% of messages I get on this site are rude/ sexually oriented/ incoherent/etc. On pay sites, at least half of my messages seemed worthwhile.

I think most sites, pay or free, are only good for people under 35 or people looking to hook up for casual sex. Period.

I stay with POF because of the forums.

I've made a point of checking around.
(nice job, by the way plentyoffish!!)
Been single, had a few profiles.
You have to really check around for the right kind of site for what you're looking for.
True as fox pointed out-many...and I do mean many sites are full of young kids or older lonely parents. If you're looking to ruffle a few feathers sexually,
those sites are a big messy pond of horney people.
If you want to meet quality people there, you'll find they've picked up a bit of attitude along the way or they've gone elsewhere.

We all want certain things, some of us have an oppertunity to find it here, for free-
thanks fishgang, much appreciated.

I think it is all timing. It is possible to meet someone anywhere at anytime and being on a site like this just increases your odds. Just don't expect too much out of it or get frustrated if there are no results immediately.

[qutoe]Every girl I've messaged has either:

a) not replied because they weren't interested, whatever.
b) replied, and then when I replied back said nothing, again, whatever.
c) replied, several times, to the point where we arranged to meet, and then stood me up.

and then I ran out of local girls who interested me...


MEGA DITTO!!!

I think the real problem is that the internet is too easy to use, so people don't go out as much to meet others, but it is true the bar scene isn't any fun; there are lots of people but no one wants to give any one a real chance, they always think they can do better than what is available in their area, pretty soon there is no one left to choose from; no matter what site you go on it's all like that. I love the forums, most stes don't have that, all we can do is keep Music and POF

Average_gurl...

well I think you might be missing the main benefit of POF, and thats these forums... its through the forums that you get to express yourself as you truly are... I know that most of the people I've talked to is through the forums... yes there are people that come on looking for just sex, but they are the ones that have very few posts in the boards... and it becomes obvious after a couple of posts wether a person is looking to get to know people or just looking ot hook up...

Although I havent 'met' anyone through here yet, I did run across someone I already knew but never had the chance to talk to...

and for those who are whining about sending emails to people and not getting any responses, do you think there might be a possibilty its because of the emails you've sent???

If your here expecting to have the first (or even tenth) person you talk to to be the ONE, then you are probably not going ot be very happy... think about it this way... if you go to a bar, there are likely at least a hundred people there, and how many 'responses' do you get there?? besides offers for casual sex that is....

just my two cents... lol

and on the same note... if you check, you'll find that there are over a million posts on the boards... sorta makes a person wonder how it is that someone could meet no-one if you were actually trying?? you obviouslly know where the boards are if your reading this... lol

I was flooded with mail when I first signed up, now I don't get many, but I stay for the forums. I have met a couple of nice people from here, and have 1 that I am trying to get up the nerve to email .... all in all this site is the best I have ever encountered.

@ chronictom

Maybe because no locals are interested? Just because someone is having no success it does NOT mean they are not trying.

I get email and IM from guys who are 5+ hrs away...very little local interest...and the bulk of ALL the mail is looking for "intimate encounters".

the not trying was in reference to the fact that she a total of four posts... you have 380 or so... that is part of the trying... its the difference between stickin a sign on your car saying for sale, and advertising in all the methods availble to you...

My point is that REGARDLESS of how much and how you advertise, if there is no market for the product, you are not going to make a "sale".
