Thank you!

The New Advanced Search Feature
Posted: 6/26/2013 1:04:26 PM
I went to the internet and found a zip code map.
I picked a zip code that was on the border of my state, in the next state.
I did a 50 mile search.
I received results in both states.
Then I did it again at a three-state border.
I received results in all three states.

It's not the state code.
I played around with it a little bit.
I found if you put in at least one Sun sign (Aries, Taurus, etc.) that you'll have results.

Women can fix this!
Posted: 6/4/2013 6:55:38 AM

Women only want friendly chat when they want friendly chat, and men are supposed to know that. When they want it, they will survey the recent ones to see which one she likes - just like she only looks at the ads in the current Cosmo. Maybe you'll get picked!

I once had a good friend who mantra is "Timing is Everything!"

give date feedback on inbox

wooby --
Okay, I see that.
If only paid members can see feedback,
and non-paying users cannot,
then the problem people can just target the non-paying users,
since it's so easy to identify the paying members,
and the non-paying users have no idea of the dating feedback of the problem people. (Unless too much negative feedback results in account deletion?)

Will that then inspire more to pay? We'll see, I guess.

Except that CallerID gave a truthful number (at least before spoofing came about).
Feedback can't be depended upon for truthfulness.

Juicer benefits!!
Posted: 5/22/2013 9:34:00 AM
This is a test to see if this post will post.

I love my Champion Juicer, which I acquired in 1989.
I only use it occasionally.
I enjoy my juice tremendously every time I use it.
It is such an uplifting experience.

^^^ Great Idea of the Day (dating feedback)

Surely those who have been having conversations or have struck up relationships on here should have at least had the courtesy of being able to make alternative arrangements should they wish to do so.

Markus, in his sent message to everyone's inbox, did not clarify that the restriction only applies to men. Did that change?

If not, then now that the women know, and if they want to continue contact, they can message an alternative that is offsite. But, if they take Markus' message literally, they may think that all is lost. . . .

Oh, and, gee, I don't know how I got Markus' message, as I'm 18 years older!

My name is Markus and I created POF/Plentyoffish. When I created POF, I wanted it to be all about finding relationships with the right person. For the first 7 years this worked really well, I got the site to 10 million users without any employees people and POF was generating a ton of relationships. Around 3 years ago, everyone started using the website via mobile phones. Today about 70% of POF use is via a mobile phone and unfortunately about 2% of men started to use POF as more of a hookup site mostly due the the casual nature of cell phone use.

In sticking with my vision that POF is all about Relationships, I'm going to make a bunch of changes to ensure it stays a relationship-focused site.

1. Any first contact between users that contains sexual references will not be sent. Anyone who tries to get around this rule will be deleted without warning. This rule has actually been in effect since last month and it's made the site so much better.

2. You can only contact people +/- 14 years of your age. There is no reason for a 50 year old man to contact a 18 year old women. The majority of messages sent outside those age ranges are all about hookups. Anyone who tries to get around this rule will get deleted.

3. Intimate Encounters will go away in the next few months. There are 3.3 Million people who use the site every day, of those there are only 6,041 single women looking for Intimate Encounters. Of those 6,041 women, the ones with hot pictures are mostly men pretending to be women. Intimate Encounters on POF can be summed up as a bunch of horny men talking to a bunch of horny men pretending to be women.

In short the vast majority of people will not be impacted. This is because the vast majority of people are not going around spamming women saying "let's have sex tonight". I can't change POF alone, I need your help to get the word out there that POF is all about relationships!

POF Search Error

"It's him, not you."

That is, it's the POF server, not your computer. Wait it out.

Posted: 5/19/2013 6:28:23 AM

there is a noticeable pause, I can easily count to 3, before the list appears

Not for me. I just checked every drop-down list on the Adv. Search page, and they came up immediately.

my normal search defaults to age ranges that I haven't selected

Again, I've never had that problem.

Things men and women don’t know about each other?
Posted: 5/18/2013 7:49:15 AM

(msg 41) Pure confidence is an illusion. Every time we face rejection, it erodes our confidence.

When you believe such a concept, that is what you will manifest.
When you learn to not take rejection (in whatever form it occurs) personally, your confidence, by consequence of this mental action, will build up accordingly.

WHERE the hell do you find this forum through POF?!?

You can go the roundabout way
by clicking on an event from your inbox page
(if you have any events listed),
then clicking "detailed event thread here."

And now that you're here,
you can bookmark the page.
