The app itself let's you create as detailed a profile as you wish. The search criteria are limited and I don't know think It's that clever at matching, but there are at least some real people on here and some of them read and respond to your message. There is however a problem with there being lots of profiles that are of questionable purpose. For example only one photo and a kik ID. Easy to spot them and focus on the others. Great messaging if you're a paying member and you can see when a sent meddage has been read. I recommend this app.
Fake profiles are a big issue. And not just ones that people make. The app itself will send you notifications saying someone wants to meet you but the profile doesn't even exist. They send those to keep you on the app. When you are a free member you wouldn't even know they are doing this. Unless it's a mutual match, you are not able to view the people who want to meet you. I did decide to try and pay and it's crazy how many fake requests the app will send out.
It's an overall great app to pass the time, interface is simple, and it's 100% free. It's just a bit challenging meeting people on here, and there's a handful of fake profiles on here which aren't hard to spot at all. Luckily for me, I met my match on here after a long time of waiting, so I do thank pof for that. If you give it time and patience, I guarantee you'll find your match too.
Mostly scammers on here asking for money. They hook you in with conversation then ask you for money or send you to a website to plug in your credit card info for a POF dating certificate. really?! a dating certificate? there are a few real profiles (very few). the matches or messages you do get are from people that aren't even close to the criteria you submit. oh and almost forgot they change your criteria on you too
This site or app is ok but needs serious work. Way too many fake people on there and way too many people posting pictures of their private parts and it doesn't even let you block that person or profile until they message you. So this site needs some serious work!!
This app was recommended to me by a friend. So far it's been ok. I'm specfic about the type of women i'm interested, but receiving notification about women that are not my type. I'm also hoping to met someone that lived in the NYC area. The app tells me to expand my distant which leads to women who are geographically unatainable.
