Why are guys online so biased against black women
Posted: 7/18/2017 11:38:49 AM
I'm white. I find black and Asian women more attractive. White women all seem quite samey in terms of what they want, and how much time of yours they'll waste.

Workaholics
Posted: 7/18/2017 11:37:09 AM

That would never work for me. I have tried dating women who are busy all the time and it doesn't work for me. I find that a lot of women now want a guy that they can fit in for a couple hours here and there. I work steady afternoons so for me the only time I really have to spend with anyone is on weekends when I am off. Most of that time I spend at my trailer relaxing. Its very hard to find a woman that wants to do that most weekends.


Perhaps they want to go out at weekends rather than sit in your trailer??

Why doesn't pof send the message via email
Posted: 7/18/2017 11:34:45 AM
It'll be a dodgy profile that's messaged you. It would only have been a link to pay site, anyway. It's like all those fake friend requests on Facebook from amazingly busty women who all hail from the same town nearby. Jeez, I've never seen any of them!

OP - by the sounds of that, you came across antagonistic, and since women are always in the driving seat when it comes to the game of love, she thought "Five more have just messaged me. I'll look up them instead."

Bait and Switch
Posted: 6/27/2017 12:05:42 PM
I wouldn't start asking about a second date while I'm on the first - that puts too much pressure on.

When the date ends, agree to msg each other later, and take it from there. If it's going to happen, it will happen. If it won't, it won't.

Disappearing Correspondence

No, when they block you, EVERYTHING disappears in to/from messages.
If just one side disappears and their picture goes blank, it's because POF have kicked them.

more and more members
Posted: 5/28/2017 6:27:19 AM

Have you guys noticed more and more members online are fake. And also asking to be only contacted by paid members. Hmmm a little fishy to me.


Bear in mind, those women are NOT using paid profiles, either, so it makes no sense.

Offensive advertisement
Posted: 5/28/2017 6:24:36 AM

The thing is, those are Ad-Sense ads and as such the ad that shows is based on a few things up to and including your browser history.


If Google are inadvertently running ads containing nudity, they won't be running them for long. They soon crack down on that.

Strange disappearing profile... What does this mean?
Posted: 5/28/2017 6:22:23 AM

I had the same thing. Was getting on great with one lady, she have me her number and we chatted for one and a half hours, to which afterwards, she messaged me and said she would love to meet, with kisses on the end.
I messaged her the next morning as arranged and her profile is still there along with our conversations, just minus her photo and it's constantly off line. It wouldn't appear as though she's blocked me and had no reason to.
Could it be because she published her telephone number on a message to me?
POF: could you provide an answer please as this lady was smoking hot and we got on soooo well?


If the messages on one side of the conversation have gone, then POF have removed her account. I had that happen after a date with someone, which wasn't leading to a second, but I knew she was clearly real and the least offensive date I've ever had, so I presume she'd been blocked too many times and they kicked her.

If ALL messages disappear from your page - to and from, then she's blocked you.

Occasionally, a woman's sent a msg before blocking me. I can't read it on my PC, but I can still read it on the mobile app. Then when on the moble app, you can block her back.

If only POF would do something about all those accounts which DON'T use any sort of face pictures, eg. I saw one was an album cover; and you can report those to try and get rid of them but POF take zero action.

All those profiles which are simply a picture of something other than a person, eg. a poster for something on one I've just seen.

It gives you the chance to report them. You do so. Nothing happens.

ask you to email their personal account
Posted: 4/19/2017 8:45:47 AM
After a couple of messages, two women have suggested Whatsapp instead. Both sounded interested but then only replied sporadically. What a waste of time... for the one that's still on POF. The other account has disappeared.

Still, as one person said on here "Nothing is real until you meet"

Deleting viewed/viewed by me
Posted: 4/13/2017 1:28:05 PM
Sadly, no to all of these.

On PC, I just block the image if it's not someone I'm interested in, so they don't show up again (unless they change their profile pic) although this is more useful for the general searches.

And I just ignore the circle thing above.

If they were interested, they would reply. If they're logging in without replying, then they're not. If you've been messed about a couple of times, then to save the hassle of wondering if they'll reply, just block and move on. Their loss.

Blocked? or deleted Account?
Posted: 4/6/2017 3:47:50 PM
JZeeJr - POF have deleted her account. You have not been blocked.

As has been observed, if people are blocked enough times, the account will be deleted. It could've been because they were fake, but not always. I once went on a date which didn't work out, but our last exchange was still in my inbox and two days later, her account was deleted, so others could've blocked her and so this happened. I know she wasn't fake because I saw her in the flesh.

remove from search results feature?
Posted: 3/29/2017 3:52:56 PM
I just block the main images of women I'm not interested in, or aren't interested in me. Of course, this only works for PC, and until they change their profile pic, but if it's a fake then they rarely change theirs.

Hence, if they're blank, I can easily skip them without thinking about it.

Isn't snapchat the thing where the pictures disappear after a short time? What's the point?

And if she was interested, she'd reply. She doesn't, so she isn't. The end.

Hidden Profile Feature Gone?
Posted: 3/25/2017 4:02:52 PM

Yes it's annoying..I don't want public to see my photos and have them private, but a lot of women don't know how to go into the profile settings and change them? lol...I have instructed them before, but they just don't understand lol..are guys just better at these things?


If you have no pictures, you'll get zero messages. That's even if they haven't been put off by your title "Decent women only! No crazy feminists or snobs NO" or your appalling use of apostrophes and grammar.

Blockgate
Posted: 3/24/2017 1:06:16 PM

One particular time made me mad though. I had been going out with a girl for about 6 months. Spent hundreds of dollars on her and a ton of time. Then, she spontaneously blocked me because we were "looking for different things". It really took her that long to figure that out?? Bottom line is that yes it is rude, yes it is cowardly, but I would probably act the same way if I was a woman. Because men cant handle rejection


You were dating for six months and your ONLY form of communication was still POF??

As an aside, it'd be better if when someone blocked you, their name didn't keep coming up every time they're online, as you have no way of getting rid of that until after about a month.

And in response to the OP, as for admin deleting accounts, this place is full of fakes so it clearly doesn't stop people setting up new ones.

pof girls eat and leave
Posted: 3/24/2017 11:09:23 AM

Who doesn't reply? How about a woman who's had a man physically abuse her after hearing "NO". Doesn't matter that you sent a message....you have her phone number and you've seen her face. Abusive people can go to extreme lengths to harass others.

Apparently, you though you were too "cool" to just let her go without a parting shot, since you OBVIOUSLY knew she was going to say no. You couldn't have been conflicted, could you...?


So we've gone from a date with a drink to a polite message to you banging on about men abusing women. This says much more about you than anyone else.

And I never had her phone number anyway. We conversed on here, even on the day of the date. Still, keep making assumptions, since you know what happens when you make assumptions....

Geting late replies from Messages... Like, REALLY late...
Posted: 3/23/2017 12:46:48 PM

Drop them. If they weren't interested enough to keep in contact back then, they're just throwing shit at the wall to see if it sticks.


This! Do what I do - message them, they don't reply, you see they're still on POF regularly so they'll have read your message without replying... just block them. If they were interested, they'd have replied. If they're keeping you in reserve as mentioned on here, they're taking the mickey and they're no good for you.

Only thing that confuses me, is with this particular woman already showing signs of non-interest--you take her out, three times!


Same here. You know when a woman is not showing interest. I once had a date where I thought we were getting on while chatting in a restaurant (just having drinks - well, one. It lasted 90 mins to 2hrs and I did ask if she wanted another as she wasn't volunteering but she said no), and then I got the feeling a second date wouldn't be on the cards, but I did message her the next morning to ask, and she took 4 days after the date to reply. She said no. I didn't even reply! Who takes FOUR DAYS to state the obvious? She can't have been *that* conflicted?

Asking a girl at work
Posted: 3/10/2017 9:10:23 AM
Is there a way to gauge interest subtly? eg. if you've chatted about something previously and can send off a quick email to see if the conversation continues, "Hey, I meant to ask...." and if she doesn't reply, or if it fizzles out after an exchange or two, then you know it's a non-starter. That way, you haven't "asked her out" and there's no embarrassing feeling, but you have your response. That's what I'd do, and have done.
