It’s not badI’ve been using this app on and off for the last few years. Can’t say that I’ve had a horrible experience here, but I neither can I say I’ve been super successful. Few issues I have are: way WAY to many fake accounts. It’s beyond palpable that this happens. Makes it difficult for you to enjoy it. Money, money money... yes this is a business and like all businesses in the dating industry they thrive on “pay for love” and if your a Male, get ready for a paywall everywhere you navigate. Want to upload or change your pictures? Gotta pay to have that privilege. Overall it’s a well balanced app, great UI, all be it slightly laggy from time to time. The only let downs are fakes, paywalls & many many people pretending to be something they’re not. Use caution when dating online. Good luck!.Version: 7.11

Data Miners and Perception ManagersThis app (since its inception) is a predatory app. It houses paid employees, bots, shills, gatekeepers, agents (military and government) and other orders (Freemasons, Jesuitical and RCC) who insidiously sit on this site and poach real unsuspecting people. There’s a reason why everyone is looking for sex, no one can meet up, most are illiterate, and plenty of profiles regurgitate leftist liberal Marxist socialist ideologies and mantras. The sock puppet accounts will use perception management, and Neuro linguistic programming (NLP) to control people and sway their opinions or emotions based on nonsensical rhetoric. It’s basically mind control. Fake accounts are easy to spot; some have the same pictures up for years... but they play their scripts well, and deflecting as much as possible. Many accounts will make people think that they have a problem, through there “role playing”. And so, by demoralizing people through shame compliance or guilt compliance to act, behave and surrender to the will of the corrupt world. Divide and conquer is a strategy also employed by the agents on social media sites like this. As well as gang stalking, harassment. The theft of personal photos to be used by agents to perform their black operations is also in full swing, as many profiles have been spotted in other countries, especially dead soldiers from the military. POF plays on people’s insecurities and dangles the carrot in the face, all in an attempt to get information on people, and log it. It uses false accounts to create artificial popularity and then targets people for profiling. Basically, it’s the Catholic Churches modern day “confessional” like all the social medias they own and oversee. POF is corrupt to the core. Any real man or woman wouldn’t dare set foot on it. If you do, you get what you deserve for your ignorance and blindness..Version: 13.41

Same old, same oldI always see the same woman, is no one joining? App need a modern look update..Version: 7.70

Customer Service and Support was horrifying.The customer service for this company is the worst I have ever been involved with. I actual felt helpless and that I have made a huge mistake. I don’t believe I have ever written a review before. The customer service department is in India which doesn’t really matter but they just don’t care and they are very hard to understand. The call center is extremely loud. I had to call them three times and I will never call them again. It’s unfortunate that I spent $77 bucks for the premium package because it hasn’t help and it did no improve their support. If I need support again I will just stop using the app, I will never call customer support again. When I ask him why they didn’t care he told me he didn’t like my attitude and that I wouldn’t listen anyway. I ask why they didn’t care and why they wouldn’t want me as a customer renewing my premium package and buying tokens and they said it doesn’t matter POF has millions of customers. If you don’t believe me spend 5 minutes reading their customer service reviews or any reviews for that matter. They also denied my request for a refund, one day after I purchased it. Don’t waste your hard earned money. Best of luck..Version: 11.30

Ok....just wowOkay gentlemen, let me be frankly honest with you. If you’re thinking you’ll have a bit of luck without the natural physical traits, you might want to redirect your attention to another app or rise above that storm by jumping out there in person instead of using an app with a bunch of shallow women and spam bots polluting the app with their garbage. This app used to be amazing and people actually RESPONDED!!! Now you dont get a single word from these people because either they arent interested or the bloody automatic filters is so strict and ridiculously unrealistic that the messages wont even go through and it doesnt matter how modest or clean you are. When you do get a message its only a simple “hey :)” literally you’ll probably get a crap ton of those though. Anywho It appears these people are more concerned about looks than anything else so theyll easily swipe right passed ya youre just a toy they didnt want. PoF appears to be so lazy to fix their gosh forsaken app and get rid of these sex driven robots and add insult to their app by posting other dumb robots claiming that the “user” only wants messages from a paid subscriber. Anyway if you somehow manage to get past all that and you find yourself in the 3% category of the successful people, congrats..Version: 9.30

Anyone genuine..??!!Well,please please POF people can you do something with section ( Meet Me). Why would I want to meet someone from eg: Southampton/ Cardiff or even further when I live in the Midlands.!!! Also the Mobile Users. The distance below photo doesn't correspond with where the person lives. Please sort it out, it's embarrassing when someone ask to chat and you find out that they live the other side of the country..!! because the mobile section says 2 miles. Thank you Since I last wrote this you have changed the app again, even more difficult where you don’t show where the person is from!!! Why??? You definitely are making the app less available to those who not paying a fee, until one day you are like the others:-( Thank you.Version: 6.80

Dont upgrade to premium and my account got deleted for no reasonLast september i bought one year subscription on this app and someone from POF deleted my account last month . I contacted their so called customer care and they are saying that they deleted my account on error and they cant refund my membership subscription or transfer my membership subscription to my another account. Such a new way of scam . Even my friend had the same problem and probably they are doing this to many so that they can earn more money . Such a beggers. Go and get a life you beggers..Version: 15.00

Filled with spambots and very unsafeI’ve used POF many times on and off through out the years. Just recently when I joined again I noticed all the fake profiles, spambots, cam models. Every week I’ve been getting 15-30 fake messages from spambots asking me to click on links, message them on other sites, also soliciting sex services as well. Their profiles you could tell are fake and not real members. Then this past weekend I noticed somehow my account was hacked and whoever took all of my pictures down and added up pictures of a lady in revealing pictures and then they also messaged a ton of guys, also I saw I received 25 messages from guys as well. I immediately deleted my account and I’ll never use POF again. It’s very unsafe and turned into a very sick site. Just this summer I saw people were posting up pornagraphic pictures with websites and also numbers in their profile pictures as well. Here POF never removed them or anything. I never give out my phone to anyone or any of my information nor do I ever use somebody’s phone or computer and use it to log on. My profile definitely got hacked by a sicko. With all the spambots and catfishing and fake profiles on it it’s not even worth it. The moderators just don’t even care and don’t take it down.Version: 11.63

So many shallow women it’s pathetic!Good app with good design & features but as the title says “So many shallow women it’s pathetic!”!!! I must have sent over a hundred messages to women to get about 3-4 replies! I’m a reasonable looking guy with all the qualities and more than most women want and guess what??? They don’t care! All they care about is if you look as good as Brad Pitt or George Clooney and if not then zero replies! Nothing to do with personality at all! I did get some “Meet Me” clicks but you have to pay to see them which should be free or cheaper than $50/month! Probably the most soul destroying experience I’ve ever had! I’m giving it 1 Star simply because you can message for free. If you paid for messaging like on Zoosk you’d be devastated and feel pretty ripped off! If you guys were smart you’d only charge a couple of dollars per month for the extras you get way more subscribers and probably make more money..Version: 6.50

Worst thing since WWIIPOF is the worst thing that has happened to personal relationships since the government drafted men and sent them to war to be killed..Version: 11.61

Hacked and cc data stolenBrutal. Within three days on being on my profile was hacked. My photos gone. No idea where. Some one else’s photos and details. My username and login. I deleted everything. Within a week, CC had fraud charges. Be careful totally unsafe app..Version: 15.50

Registration ProblemsThe multiple choice answers when completing the registration for membership are far too limited and some are too personal. Particularly because of those issues, there should also be the option not to answer certain questions. Wish we could bin the profiles that don’t interest us so they don’t keep reappearing every search. It’s so time-consuming and annoying. It would also be great to be able to search using keywords of our own choice..Version: 10.90

A hook up or scam app at bestI’ve tried using POF a few times now but rarely stay more than 10 days because it’s exhausting. I’ve heard that a lot of profiles are scammers or just looking for someone to pay for that nights dinner or ‘entertainment’ (SO many invites to the the 3rd...!!) So as a normal woman without Snapchat, you get swamped. Every time I logged in, I would get 30+ messages and hundreds of “Meet me” notifications (which are annoying as you can’t view who clicked yes) I tried having conversations but it was too much. So many guys just got aggressive or nasty if you either turned them down or just didn’t reply quick enough! There’s no controls or protection to stop it - insufficient filters to limit who can contact you. And blocking does nothing worthwhile; more than one guy simply started a new profile so he could verbally attack me for blocking him! I used to register and hide my profile, so I could browse in peace (provided I did it quick enough, because those who’d already contacted could still see I was online) but it seems that feature has gone too. Every time I’ve joined, I’ve learned to be happier that I’m single if this is the alternative..Version: 14.50

Best emojis ever!I am on POF because I like texting, and it seems that men are the only people who still will. I did want to find a forever love, but as a fat woman I seem to have Buckleys of that in this forum though, because dating websites have spoilt men (and women) for choice. I think it has made it so that no one gives people time to build a relationship anymore- it's all just an immediate yes or no. It's a shame because it has made it so superficial. Oh, and fellas- what's this thing with the automatic blocking? It's unnecessary and disrespectful. You can be assured that just the "no thanks" text gets the message across.Version: 9.70

Avoid this appSo I’ve been visiting different dating apps for a while, about half a year now, and I have to warn people. This is one of the worst I’ve come across. I’m a guy, and I can’t speak for the girls review but for the guys, about half of the female profiles are fakes, scammers or secret porn advertisements. I’ve never seen so many fake profiles before, and it’s obvious they are computer generated with similar names and intro summaries etc. anyone could pick them out. Obviously PoF doesn’t screen anyone or provide a suitable dating environment. Aside from sifting through hundreds of fake profiles, you don’t know who is real or not. I didn’t have a single message or message reply, most of the messages I sent were (unread-deleted) without anyone even viewing my profile, so I’m not sure what’s going on with that but it’s highly suspect. Also, the distance and age you place on filters is completely ignored. From my perspective I think PoF purposely adds fake profiles to boost their member numbers, and ignores filters so you gain more meetings, etc. because the number of real users is pretty low. To say the least, stay away, you won’t get anywhere or meet any real women. Literally, you have better chances with any other app out there..Version: 8.00

Don’t waste your timeWhat a horrible app. There are no real girls on this app. After installing the app, filling up an annoying for and uploading some pics, you’re ready to go. After 10 minutes I was inundated with heaps of notifications about girls wanting to meet me as well as some messages sent by these girls. At first, I thought this would work, but after replying to some of these girls, they messaged me back with links about se x webcams, scor ts and spam I don’t care about. I spent around 40 mins trying to see if there were actually real girls on this app but nothing. I got like 30 messages from this bots, sending me links and bs. So I deleted this crappy app straight away. Do not waste your time, You’re better off using tind er.Version: 9.90

PointlessBasically if you aren't above a 7, have a robust lifestyle, have six figure salary, and a guy.. Don’t bother.. not even just for the woman who only seek superficial relationships but pretend they have integrity by lamenting that they don't want hook ups and only want a “real man”... yet still only swipe right on 7+s and men that either blatantly lie about their life for matches or just happen to be 6 foot tall etc. oh and 95% of your matches will be fake/scam/porn profiles ... basically if it looks to good to be true.. it is.. its actually quite pathetic though how far these scammers are reaching now.... now they are impersonating below average woman to make it seem more likely they’d actually swipe right... chances are they wouldn’t because most females on these apps have unrealistic expectations/standards... but then again, whoever manages this app virtually does nothing to exemplify this issue.. Ive been matched with the same person several times.. each time with a different name.. and goes the same nearly every time.. macro intro ...” whats up” “hey” etc. you say hi... and they respond with a PHONE NUMBER... then you proceed to text them .. then they almost simultaneously send you links to camwhore sites... just don’t waste your time here boys... females on the other hand... well guess that basically goes for every dating app and site in existence.Version: 10.60

Terrible customer serviceBeen using the service for a few years, and a week ago my account got hacked (even though I never give out my login info and never click on junk email)! I can't reset my password because the hacker changed the email for my account. The help section on the web site has NO information on how to contact them. There's an email address they list to remove from your spam filter, but it's just a return address - no one answering emails, not even an auto-responder. The only legit seeming email I found was in the forums. I sent an email and got an auto response saying they were experiencing high email numbers and would get back to me as soon as they could. That was a week ago! I still don't have access to my account, and who knows what crap the hacker is doing in my name! [Update] It took a complaint to the BBB (Better Business Bureau) and waiting another month to finally get a response from these people, and all they had to say was my account was closed for violations of their terms of service. So I don't get my account back, hell I don't even know if they still have my pictures and info still on their servers! Stay away from this app unless you're ok with rolling the dice..Version: 7.20

Age discriminationThis app was better last year when I first joined. I found someone in the my preferred age group and we dated for a bit. I came back a second time and they have changed the age criteria. I can no longer search for someone who is 10-15 years younger than me but it sure as hell is showing me people who are 10-15 years older than me. It’s just not for me. I also found that people put different ages in rather than their actual age because they know how this site changed the criteria. I emailed them regarding this and got nowhere. C’mon POF! This is ridiculous!!!!!.Version: 14.20

What’s with the updateThe latest update doesn’t allow to log out, constantly shuts down. Please fix!.Version: 15.60

You will have to pay for this in timeTHIS IS NOT FREE. You cannot do almost anything, see who likes you, click on profiles to look at those who like you etc. unless you pay for their service. This is set up so you can infrequently match with some locals, but inevitable need to buy a subscription to effectively communicate with anyone or even just browse profiles. Technically, yes, you can get away with doing this entirely free, but what really is free is setting up and having your profile. If you want to legitimately meet anyone, go ahead and just buy the subscription because you will have to, they make you. They even give people the option to only receive messages from upgraded accounts, which is pretty much all the legitimate accounts on here. While in the app, most of the functions lead you to a link to buy their subscription, and you cannot do anything other than watch people on live stream or browse through their selection of “potential matches” which 99% of the time will not include anyone who has already liked you, forcing you to pay for a premium membership just to see these members. I would give this app zero stars for misleading all of their users, but sadly I cannot. Outside of this huge issue, I would still only give the app 3 stars..Version: 13.10

Not Accessible with VoiceOverIt is easy to create a profile on this app, but once you have and wish to search for matches or read their profiles, you cannot read or search for certain criteria such as whether they take drugs, smoke, drink, or whether or not they have or want kids. I do not recommend any blind people purchase a subscription as it does not improve the app's accessibility..Version: 13.20

PofA lot of fake accounts and scammers.Version: 15.50

DO NOT USEThis app has so so many security risks, so many opportunities for women to be completely exposed. Way too much info is visible, Men can message you directly without you matching, send photos and gross messages without an easy way to block them. Simply deleting their message doesn’t work, they can message you again and boom they are back in your inbox. It’s extremely difficult to delete your profile and your email inbox is spammed with every like, message or notification. Trying to block someone or report for offensive messages is also difficult and hard to navigate with justification needed and an explanation. Girls, women, protect yourself and your information and I would have to say use bumble or tinder. This app is built by men, for men, with no thought given to the security or safety of women. They know exactly how far away you are, within 500m. They know everything about you and your profile can not be hidden. You information should be your choice to share. Avoid at all costs to your safety..Version: 11.80

Second time I have set up a profile, second time it has deleted me!I really like the POF concept. I really love that you have to answer some personal questions and be clear about your intentions from the start. HOWEVER!!! I spent considerable time creating a profile - TWICE! First time I was able to use the app for about a month before it asked me to sign in and didn’t recognise my E-mail and password. (Before you ask - yes it was correct, but I still tried to reset it using the password link - no email ever arrived.) SECOND time was yesterday! Set up an account - try to get in it today and the exact same has happened! Even tried to log onto the website through safari and it still wouldn’t recognise that I had set up an account!!! Please please please would you sort this out - because I honestly do think this is the best dating site out there. Only if I could actually use it. 🤔.Version: 8.90

Pof bad date experienceI went on this one date met this woman talked and stuff then she starts bagging for cocaine many times through the night and trying to get me to purchase and join her on her drug addiction so ditched her and left her then she decides to file a complaint and ban and block me anyways enjoy your plenty of whales app you can have em loool.Version: 15.10

I thought this site was a dating site and not a chatting siteIt funny how you come on to a datin site and all people what to do is chat rather than make a date, see if there is some sort of click and then take it from there, a chat on the phone to make sure you like the voice but to go backwards and forwards ping-pong text drives me absolutely crazy I cannot understand why people just don't meet and see how it goes and then slowly you can see if you're got that connection. I also cannot see the point of coming on a dating site with no photo and to start a conversation with just one word, hi or just hello how are you, why not read our profile and pick something out of a profile but makes it interesting to the both of you and you're trying to connect with, surely a proper conversation rather than a one word conversation is much better it also shows a bit of intelligence..Version: 10.20

RubbishWell where do I start with this first off when you search for people there never seems to be anyone online it never saves your search details and changes them all the time and when you put 35 miles I’m in brings people up from miles away what’s the point of that needs sorting out. Meet me section why would you show people in there when on there profiles it clearly states there not a upgraded member so they can’t see you want to meet them so they shouldn’t be put in the meet me part. verification to slow down the scammers online with fake pictures and Profiles make each member verify themselves would be good. I can remember when everything on pof was free to see if they read your message the meet me section as well but as always these people get greedy then f—k the whole site up go back to the old days with the site I won’t be joking up again as it’s a complete joke when you message them they don’t even get back to you with answers stay away if your serious about meeting someone as you will only have a small chance unless you sign up for every extra they offer.Version: 8.90

The recent update is terrible - March 2020The recent update is really bad. You can’t see who is online anymore where it would show you that along the bottom on the main page. It just has this on the message page at the top. Pleasd change this to how it was before on the main page where you could see people who were online along the bottom. How are you supposed to find people. You search option doesn’t even work properly. What was the point in doing this change, when you have made the app poor to use, taking away visibility to see who is online. The whole purpose is being able to see who is online so you can chat. Please do another update and add this back in so it is easier to find potential matches who are online to chat to..Version: 12.60

Good but could be betterYou should add a feature to turn of recurring billing. Almost every other app has that option. Should be able to get 6 months with one time payment..Version: 15.50

Account deleted for no reasonI have used POF on and off for years, most of the time I’ve been a paid premium member. This time I went on, it was great, I was more popular than I’d ever been and although I’d only been signed up for a few hours, had started talking to some great guys. The next morning I went to go and log in and couldn’t. I thought I must have messed up my passwords when signing up so requested a reset and got nothing. I thought the system was down until my friend texts me asking why I deleted my account so quickly. It appears that admin have both deleted my account and blocked me from ever signing up again. For no reason. They have rules on when they will do this but NONE of these had I breached in my profile or messages. My only thought is that someone that I was not replying to reported my account for a bogus reason and admin just deleted and banned me without looking into it. I’m actually devastated about this POF and if I knew how to find someone to talk to, I would take this matter further..Version: 9.60

Network errorI've downloaded it twice and it still tells me I have a network error I've even switched my internet on and off is it the app ??.Version: 4.80

Been using the service for 1 full year now.As the title says, I’ve been using the service for one full year now and even have done so as an upgraded member (which I will not be renewing my upgraded status). I admittedly commend the POF customer service people for swiftly removing bogus profiles (there’s a disgusting amount of them). However, that leads me to point out one big flaw the site has, approving obviously bogus profiles. When you make a profile you have to wait for it to be approved making sure it follows the sites terms, however, a substantial amount of profiles breaking just about every rule in their TOS flood the site regularly. What is the point of the profile approval process if they don’t thoroughly review the profiles before approving them? It’s a good thing this site has so many features for free users that are lacking on competing services such Match, because without those the site wouldn’t be worth the time or effort to wade through all the profiles with “NSA/FWB”, or “contact me on KIK!” In their bios. All that aside, the app itself runs smoothly and I’ve rarely have issues being able to get where I need to or clicking on things. It has crashed a couple times and occasionally runs slow, but those are more or less minor inconveniences. The bottom line, do give the site and app a shot as a free user cause you’ll have nothing to lose, but don’t make the mistake I did and waste your money on being an upgraded user..Version: 6.90

Full of scammers & false profilesJust horrible! I have very little experience of dating websites but if this is truly representative then I will have nothing to do with any of them. The site is absolutely saturated with fake profiles to the point that if you get a message saying someone wants to meet/has sent a message your initial response will get to be - another scam! The site do remove profiles very quickly (quite often by the time you look at who has 'liked' you their profile has already been deleted) but I can only imagine their disinterest in proactively stopping these profiles lies in the pride they take in their headline number of 'members' Lastly they automatically enrol you for automatic renewal so when my initial block finished I went to the site to ensure I wouldn't waste my money again and found a link which said go to iTunes to TURN ON automatic renewal (which would suggest that it's not currently!) so I assumed it was fine and yet got a message saying that they had resigned me, took my money and, despite my vociferous protests, refuse to refund me. I know it's hard but save your money, this is ruthless uber capitalism exploiting people's insecurities for money - it's everything that's wrong with modern society.Version: 6.50

To many Fake profilesI’ve been using this app for a while, and there’s a number of issues that I think need to fixed. 1st the pictures. The profile pics have to be with in a certain guideline. Which a lot of them are not. Example your profile picture has to show your face with no filters of any kind. No topless body shots either. Well that’s what you see in a lot of these, phones covering the face body shot and no shirt 2nd I get messages from the “same” person all the time. But they magically don’t remember either. Even though they sent me a message from a different profile name not more then a minute ago. There a lot of fake people, half the profiles on this app are fake. 3rd to much phishing, no pun intended. Most of the fake profile are sadly posing as military. Example: I’m over seas, and I wont be back in the US yet. But I’d like to know more about you. The question they ask could easily be used to steal your identity. But the icing on the cake, is when they ask you if you have kik or whats app, to get to know you better. Because they are to busy to keep messaging you on the app. both kik and whats app are bad apps and have been used in trafficking. I’m not telling you shouldn’t use it, because I have meet some nice people on here, real people. I’m just saying if you do use it be careful..Version: 13.60

Sort your life out mate!Most things about this site are pretty good and standard. But there are a couple of issues I think need to be addressed. I have noticed that I just cannot send certain messages, or I cannot send messages at all, to certain people. Pof should, in no way, get to decide, or even provide provisions to not allow people to just message certain people. Just like in real life, people surprise you and turn out to not be what you expected and possibly someone you turn out to be interested in. The feature that prevents you from messaging certain people because ‘you’re not what they’re looking for’ should be removed. The people responsible for controlling certain aspects of this app do not have any interest in your personal endeavors and should not restrict the parameters of those endeavors as they are not aware of anything that pertains to a reasonable decision to act on anything more than the basics. You’re not Cupid’s or match makers.. you’re a bunch of people who know software enough to have that job. Therefore none of your decisions should play into any kind of restrictions placed on me or any other user. You’re providing a service. What good is your service when it prevents people from doing what they reasonably expected they could? Not good is the answer..Version: 11.21

The reviewWhere do I begin let’s start with your personal programs that you have added into your system with all the fake profiles the fake likes only to try to generate people to pay monies for things they don’t need like your meat meat program aside from that all of the prostitution fake profiles and your scammer profiles all from Guam and places of that sort or Ghana You also have a few people who try to put a party together for their local bar and a Call it a mixer for POF people however it’s a joke and 90% of the time it’s a sausage fest let me give me the first big reason why you put it in the slums of the city pub or a bar that has no class at all is it going to attract classy upscale nicer people people don’t want to go somewhere park the car and worry about it being broken into just to try to meet someone that you’ve never met before it isn’t worth the risk also you should have some kind a real program in there where people have to upgrade your profile at least monthly so we’re not having pictures from 10 years ago when they first joined this is just the beginning of My complaints as I’ve said in many of my messages I’ve sent to you to get people kicked off the site or even block them you should be paying me to help educate you on making your profile a true wonderful place to meet people because it’s actually more like a swap with all the fake profiles and the scamming that you yourself do as a company POF you should be ashamed of yourself.Version: 11.00

Bots, so many bots...In the first half hour of downloading the app, I got over 20 messages, all saying essentially the same thing, “come see this website” or “I don’t talk here much, come talk to me on kik”. Now, there are obviously some real people on here, and I’ve had the app for a week, but filtering through the bots is tedious and I just don’t have the patience for it anymore, hence I’ve deleted it. If you have the patience to figure out where the real people are, I guess the app is alright, a few other things to improve would be refreshing messages and maybe a little bit more direction as to how things work..Version: 8.70

Stuck in the StoneageThis entire pof system is in dire need of an overhaul. The website is dated enough, but the app isn’t much better. The search feature is a joke and there’s too much focus on filling in profile details that the majority of people don’t read anyway. The sole advantage pof has over other options is that it’s free to view and message, but by being free, it’s become a hub for trolls, scammers and deluded people with either really high, or really low expectations. As stated above, needs an overhaul. Features that enable users to ‘delete’ people from their personal search results for one (save accidentally messaging someone who’s not interested again), remove the ‘meet me’ feature as that’s just one big joke, and better circulate ALL active profiles. I wouldn’t ‘recommend’ pof by any means, but as a free application, it’s not going to hurt by having an account, though it may drain you mentally upon the realisation that you, and the majority of other users aren’t going to get anywhere with it. It’s probably worth mentioning too that there’s a strong 4:1 male:female ratio on here too, at least in the town radius I live in, I imagine cities to be similar. In short, guys swamp girls, so unless you’re a guy that attracts shallow or easy, don’t hold your breath!.Version: 11.40

Avoid...You basically get spammed as girl by over god knows how many people. The support feature to report people don't even do anything if you receive abuse or inappropriate messages. People are vindictive on the site when you turn them down and I've personally had people use a loophole of messaging me on numerous different accounts just so they can block me so many times. And apparently I've read according to the website policy if you are blocked so many times your account is taken away and you can't get it back. Imagine the surprise I get when trying to log on that day to have my account taken down for someone else's games. There isn't even a support number to ring, and if it is it's only machines. There is no support email at all to request an enquiry as to the account situation. But I'm kind of glad because this app is the worst dating app by far I've come across..Version: 10.80

Has a mind of it’s ownSince the new update it doesn’t retain my search parameters. It changes them all by itself constantly. I could vaguely understand it doing it after closing the app and re opening it. But I can go to search, change the parameters and immediately it just searches with whatever parameters it likes....sort it out, it’s getting right on my nerves! Since I last wrote my review, I have discovered that on the search feature it doesn’t bring up every profile either. I select by last visit and nobody comes up as ‘online now’. The people that do appear that are in my area are about the same 5 people. What is going on? How am I supposed to get the most out of this app? It barely functions!.Version: 8.50

Restore Purchase DOES NOT WORKIf you delete the app from your phone, you cannot restore your purchase when you reinstall. AND there’s no customer service!!.Version: 15.50

Not too badSeems pretty good so far.Version: 5.70

POF messagingI do like the POF app, and I like the fact that you can read messages for free, which is a rarity on dating sites. The only thing I find annoying is the emojis (unlocked after so many messages). They actually start to become really annoying when you’re typing. The other thing I find after the emojis are unlocked, is that my keyboard plays up and starts auto-capitalising each letter, so I have to keep going back to correct it. I’m a fast texter (and a good speller), but it takes ages to write a short message with all the corrections I have to make. This also messes up the auto correct on my phone, which only makes matters worse, as the correct word comes up, and then reverts back to my spelling mistake (again I have to go back). I do not have this problem on any other app, or through texting, etc..Version: 10.70

Fake appThis app not allow you to chat or let you see who’s interested in you unless you are a paid member. Not worth..Version: 12.00

Garbage wasteland of an app with people the likeA gave this app a couple of tries, and each time I regretted it immensely. My account got hacked and that was the final straw. I’ve never had to deal with ANY account of mine being hacked anywhere. The lack of customer service, ignoring customers across social media platforms and lack of access to getting assistance/a resolution made me completely say I will NEVER use this garbage app ever again. My personal information, my PHOTOS are floating around this app, with what I assume a scammer is using to harass other members. It disgusts me, the lack of security on the site, responsibility and disregard for people’s information and pictures is baffling to say the least. In most reviews across social media platforms, the users are what most people speak of being mediocre, but when it’s the actual site itself and lack of security? That’s completely unacceptable, hope someone shuts this site down. Don’t even waste your time, if you value it, your peace of mind and your sensitive information and pictures. Don’t get this app or make an account EVER. Just look at the reviews across the Internet, speaks volumes, while POF doesn’t even make a whisper about these issues..Version: 11.50

Used to be goodThis app was good back in the day I used it I got two serious relationship. Since I rejoin in December it’s deleted my account three times I had to sign up again . When i tried to login it does not recognise my email I even click forget password I don’t get the email to reset . This is the most annoying thing is that I only get to use the account for 2 days then I can’t get back into my account .the thing is you can’t contact the people at POF at all as I'm was worried about my pictures just being there when I can’t login it’s the app as be come ridiculously now . I made another account for the fourth time after 2 days of using it my account is deleted again I just don’t understand it need to improve massively. It’s very disappointing as this is the only dating app I have used for the last 5 years with no problem.?.Version: 9.80

Terrible dating appPlenty fish may have been here for some time but definitely not a good option now. Full of scammers and other unsavoury people. Not worth the money. It keeps erasing my bio info when indicating I do not give consent for using any of my info or pictures. It’s actually zero stars..Version: 15.50

Scammer CentralThe app it’s self is good but there are sooooooooo many scammers it’s not funny. If anyone asked for a “video chat” they are scamming you. 3 within 2 days it kinda makes you want to delete the app. Can’t help but feel like they need to make you confirm your identity better or something to try remove this issue. Ruins an other wise decent app..Version: 8.10

AnnoyedMessages are not sending at all.Version: 15.50

Profile picAm writing to complain that my profile pic of scenery was taken down yet i see mostly pics of scenery, torso's, celebritities...everything i was then told i cant put up. But mayb what you dont realise is that i actually had a better response from no pic, due to what i wrote on my profile, because then guys were interested in getting to know me. I have not had fake profile or as many unsavory unsuitable guys bothering me. As adults you think we should have the freedom to show a puc of outselves or not & let others decide if they want to contact us or not!.Version: 8.00

Worst dating appThe worst dating app. I’d say 85% of profiles are fake, being operated by real people but scammers none the less. The girl profiles that are real are so snowed in with attention that there is rarely ever a reply. The more effort you put in, the more soul destroying the outcome. All the girls on there crying out for a good man that won’t send D pics- those guys sending d pics have to have a had a reply from that girl otherwise they couldn’t send a picture- says something both about the standard of girl and the standard of guy. It’s basically a massive hub of negativity and it’s really needs to be cleaned out and started again. OH AND THE OTHER THING- if you swear in a message, even the word cocktail, it will say it has sent your message but it has in fact just been senators and deleted- as if modern dating wasn’t hard enough.....Version: 10.50

Way to ruin an appThis app worked until you brought Lives in it from Skout and MeetMe. Now you removed the favorite profiles feature allowing us to see which DATING profiles we prefered rather than just favorite streamers. And since the last update it says all my messages haven’t been read (I’m premium) and it says I got new messages when I don’t and keeps having lag and connection issues. PS: It keeps saying that “*match* is looking for other types of people, so why not message one of your matches instead?” when SHE IS A MATCH?!?!.Version: 13.90

What a terrible designHonestly, who in **** name have you got designing your UI for the latest incarnation of this app (August/Sept 2020). It’s completely unusable. You have no intelligible search results, can’t filter easily, and are promoting all This TikTok rubbish. This is a dating website not a social media like fest. Get with it and stock all the prostitution advertisements, allow people to search for people they WANT to meet and not who you think they should be forced to me. Allow search options and stop this horrific moronic UI that no one understands unless you spend all day everyday learning what each button does. Your UI from a year ago was soooo much better and didn’t require any investigative work to use. Each incarnation of your app has got worse and worse since I started using it over 10 years ago..Version: 13.80

AwfulI used to use this app a couple of years ago and it was really good, but now I’ve tried to use it again and it’s impossible. Started to create an account, went back a couple days later and couldn’t log in so was able to reset my password, still wouldn’t let me log in so deleted the app and then reinstalled. Finally then I was able to log in and complete my profile. I then went back to the app an hour later and couldn’t log in again as saying my credentials were incorrect, well I know for a fact they are correct. Tried sending another password reset and nothing came thru, have tried several more times and no emails come thru. It’s ridiculous. I’m not going to waste my time with an app that makes it impossible to log in..Version: 11.50

GreatIt's free and easy to use..Version: 3.70

App is fake & full of bots!I understand every app needs to make money to survive. And most apps/games method is somewhat not considerate but acceptable. However this app straight deceives you. Bots will send you request to meet up but in order to see who they are you must spend. To me that’s acceptable as long as it’s true. After payment open the list of all the request only to find out every person has closed their account. DECEIT. You get a lot of people wanting to meet up (fake) I think there’s a 10min refresh, all the requested meetup are deleted and app says don’t worry they’ll be plenty more later on. Fake fake. As for the Last fake I still don’t know if it was real person or bots. But story goes girl starts initial communication and only 5 in she wants to videocall. No hot girl willingly to videocall after 5 min delayed chat. She insist and kindly helps you setup video( additional cost on top of monthly fee) I didnt buy had feeling fake. I’m saying HOT! Personally I think they’re real people hired to lure people to activate videocall. This review is made from the perspective of a person who has only used this app for 1 day. But rarely am I wrong..Version: 8.80

Great app.I’ve had a change Hart. It works well. I signed up paid 12 months subscription but some scammer hacked my account and used my profile for about 24 hours. I got in touch with POF team they resolved my issues they have a number to call. As there are so many members but the only catch is you have to guard your account. If any of the scammer member they ask you the get verified or send you a link to fill out your personal details. Immediately block that person and report it to POF. I still use POF and hope to meet my beautiful women here..Version: 11.50

Like waterNothing is easy, fluid or natural. The messaging system kicks you out once you've sent something. Your profile feels forced and there are just too many platforms pushed on you..Version: 9.70

Can’t message people backI try and message guys back and it never actually sends..Version: 15.60

Long list of issuesTo start the latest update keeps saying that I don’t have internet access when I do. Can access internet through browser, get on yt etc but the app doesn’t seem to connect!? As far as the app when it does work, it’s gone downhill fast. Most profiles that use the meet me part are all bogus accounts trying to lure you to bs websites. Can’t turn that part off either, the notifications are annoying. Now also seems to be lot of profiles that require you to upgrade to be able to talk to them. Not sure why but that seems like a scam to get you to upgrade. The quality of people are questionable to say the least. I’ve been contacted by prostitutes, people wanting to score drugs and people wanting money, rides or a place to live. It’s like being in a virtual trailer park at this point. Guys are at a huge disadvantage (as on most sites) because the women have a smorgasbord of men to choose from. So unless you have some killer first line then you will never stand out. It’s better to go out and meet people doing real activities rather than sit online and deal with screwed up individuals that lie and hide things about them. No longer worth the hassle considering app doesn’t work and the annoying scam profiles..Version: 11.50

MoneyIncredibly limiting with what you can do/see/respond to unless you pay! Consider a “trial weekend” or similar with full access to really see if the difference is worth paying for.Version: 11.30

Horrible and disappointingI have used this app for many years and its by far the worst app i have ever used to start it kept deleting my profile out of no where so i would have to create a new one every other day so i had stopped using it i literally went 2 whole years without using it because of that i just recently created a new profile 2 days ago and the app still is disappointing first i got sever messages by the app its self saying my pictures were inappropriate when they were just regular pictures of me and they deleted my pictures off my profile because they also said that it was not me in the picture🙄🙄🙄 then i got another message saying that i got reported for harassing another member when i had just made the profile and i haven't even got a message or talked to anyone on the app like how is that even possible and also when i talk to some one we can talk but after a certain while it wont let me talk or reply to any messages it wont let me like people’s profiles or anything and if some one messages me i cant reply o say nothing to them at all the app does not let me if you guys really want people to upgrade and pay the monthly subscription to pay for the full POF app you might want to consider fixing all that before because i really wanted to pay for it but not if this continues to happen all the time its annoying🙄🙄🙄.Version: 13.41

Don’t pay for the appHey everyone, you will get a decent review from me. I signed up for the app after a breakup. I’m a male 33 years old. I signed up for a few dating apps after a bad breakup. One thing that I have noticed especially with POF is the fact that they don’t verify people that sign up. When this happens you will notice HUNDREDS of fake accounts. You notice it when people message you and they are very “robotic” In their responses. I wouldn’t pay for this app at all. DONT PAY for it. Use it for the free version but paying will NOT get you any further. They don’t regulate these fake accounts. As a matter of fact I’m almost convinced that it is the app themselves that make these fake accounts. I did a few image searches of the profile pictures and they are literally other people from other countries etc. you might stumble on actual people but they have been bombarded with fake profiles to the point where 50 % of the conversation is is trying to make sure we are talking to a real human being lol. Other than that the developers can make a conscious effort to regain the Integrity of online dating. They need to crack down on these fake profiles. And people promoting there “only fans” or their “snapchats” etc..Version: 15.10

Lesson learned, don’t even botherBeen using POF for a few years now. The app works fine it’s the company that gets zero stars. 10 million active users is a lie, I’m guessing from my searches on the pc that tell you if they are online, online today, online in the last week, online within thirty days, then all the others. All the other profiles that have not logged within the last thirty days is absurd. It’s false advertising. Then the meet me feature, they send unpaid profiles, “me” emails that specially tell you who sent it. Then you go to the meet me part of the app, WOW they are either the first or second choice. You click on the meet me, another WOW you matched, ROFLMFAO, I have messaged several asking about their choice. 1 in 25 said yes, the other 24 never responded back. Now to the scammers, catfishers, prostitution, thieves, and liars. It’s just not worth the hassle. My suggestion, purge your inactive profiles, delete them, put a time limit on inactive accounts. That would not be good for advertising, that’s not going to happen. Instead they will have people like me that will no longer use their service, if asked will tell everyone to stay away. You would have more luck at a bar. I’m sure you have seen this, POF stands for plenty of fakes. That is a very true statement. I should have listened to my friends when they gave me the advice to stay away. Nobody is this lonely..Version: 7.00

Do not use. It will get hacked!TLDR; got hacked TWICE and a bot sent a message to everyone in my messages to upgrade the app. I downloaded this app on a Wednesday. I checked it out and I wan’t a fan of the old school layout. It reminded me of an app you’d find in 2007. I checked it out a bit that night. And in the morning when I was back the next morning. My account was gone. Like it never existed. Strange! So I thought maybe it was a glitch. I kept checking in on the app but my credentials weren’t working. On Friday. I decided to try to create one AGAIN. using the same user name and email to see if I was blocked. It let me create a profile and I didn’t think my much of it. Throughout Friday. I checked in on the app and I noticed it said I reply to every single message I received I thought that’s weird I haven’t even opened half of these. I kept trying to check to see what the message was and when I finally found an account that I wasn’t blocked in it was a link that was promoting people to upgrade the app. It sent an automatic message to everyone in my messages which caused people to block me and I lost my account. This happened twice already so be where I wouldn’t download this app if you want your stuff to be hacked all your photos to be erased and for people to block you..Version: 11.40

BrokenApp doesn’t even work... have tried reinstalling three times logging out each time and tried creating a new account. No search it returns 0 results, yet same search on desktop works fine. I’m a developer - this is rubbish - do you even QC??.Version: 8.50

Seems to have a virus in itOpened it up on 7 April 2018 and are all these ads and fake profiles littered all over the matches part of the app, suggesting malware or something as this wasn’t there about a week ago, and in previous years. Surely it’s not advertising..Version: 7.60

App review, not online dating reviewFree App works, is stable, allows plenty of browsing and searching in the free version, shows what capabilities can be used if upgrading to paid version, paid version upgrade is a single transaction (ie not buying tokens or messages). Seems reasonably self-governing regarding spamming, prostitution - even has guidelines on clear profile photos (you can report crappy photos or dickpics) Can search on a number of parameters: distance, personal attributes, recent activity. Can customise notifications and email alerts. Can 'favourite' other people without matching or liking. Can message others directly without previously Liking (so can get busy/noisy).Version: 6.90

Bots bots botsTired of all those regular dating sites witch actual people on it? Yuck! Then look no further! We promise there won’t be a single living thing in this site! And as a bonus all the bots would love to see you right now! Just follow the link they send you and you’re off to the races! No need to make pesky small talk just give them you’re credit card info and hop right in. :).Version: 11.80

Too many fake profilesWay too many fake profiles and scammers on here. Speaking from the point of view of as a victim of being scammed, watch out for men with jobs such as doctors and engineers (this is to try and impress you) and statuses such as being widowed (this is aimed at pulling on your heart strings). Also, be weary of lots of gushing compliments very quickly (this is to hook you in), and requests to chat via WhatsApp or similar after just a couple of exchanges of messages. Chatting on a more private platform is way less safe. They will try and tell you they hardly ever come on this site etc.... This is often a ruse to get you chatting somewhere more private. There seems to be a lot of men who do actually live where their profile says. Don’t believe their stories if you query this. It’s often wrong. Be wary of spelling and grammar errors, as this can indicate they’re not from where they claim they are. Bottom line, if a profile seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Just please be careful using an app like this!.Version: 14.90

I have tried everything else other than to leave the app to protect my information etc etcProfile and all details are available to anyone who has access to anything that I would prefer to be sorted as I have requested that you can get it sorted for the last time that I'm going to be trying it again after the payment of it being an upgraded account to come to the end and then I'll not be renewing it again for the reasons that I've stated to you more than once before and you still don't understand what exactly you are meant to do for your customer and your staff needs a lot more training to be honest about it and it's a safe place for whatever it professed is the aim of the site and service I am not receiving the customer service that I'm paying for you to monitor my personal account details etc etc so that I'm wanting to be resolved ASAP thanks for the information that is obviously not happening with my profile information etc so that you might have a chance to let me know when you have sorted the whole process out for sure xdebi.Version: 9.20

My last choice for a dating site...This site is full of trashy people. I used this site and app for a good amount of time, even when I dated someone for a period of months I kept my profile in tact until I felt things were more serious. Having said that, I have some time invested and this is my experience. My profile was classy and very clearly showed my intent for long term, and that I'm family oriented, yet.. -The site is full of obnoxious guys who were dishonest, fake profiles, or had plain disgusting behavior, and I constantly had to sift through this crap. -I received way too many messages from guys who were clearly looking for a hook up along with other inappropriate messages. POF doesn't seem to care that I had to deal with these jerks constantly when I'm not displaying anything to invite that kind of harassment. It is harassment and it gets old. -I finally got fed up and responded to the last jerk who asked if I wanted any D (you can figure this one out I'm sure), and I said, I wish you were dead. A week or so later POF appears to have closed my account. Wouldn't be surprised if that gross pig of a man is still active on there though. In the end, thank you POF for closing it. I signed up elsewhere and the difference in quality of people is significantly noticeable. I only regret that I didn't try other sites sooner. What a waste of a decent persons time..Version: 7.00

Not impressedMy first account was hacked and my profile was marketed as offering online sexual services. My second account was taken down without reason. It’s incredible to me that there are tons of people breaking guidelines on here, and EXTREMELY abusive users, and my account is removed for doing nothing wrong. This app has been an absolute headache and waste of time, I don’t recommend it whatsoever. I’ll never pay for a membership here and will use other online dating services going forward, this isn’t worth your time..Version: 14.90

Don’t do itWasn’t having much luck on tinder so thought I would try here. Very few matches and nothing I was interested so tried to delete my account. Cannot delete my account only hide it and not even hide it from the people who have seen it previously. This is a violation of privacy. Don’t do it!.Version: 9.40

Too many bots and scammersA month later site has many naked pictures from bots and duplicate profiles. Scammers are all over the place. The names is a dead giveaway. They have 5-10 numbers behind their name. Women that do not speak back should be kicked off the site. People that haven’t logged in 30 days should be deleted. Better yet delete all and start fresh to ensure each profile is legit. The admins done gave up on fixing these issues. No password retrieval. Same old updates that doesn’t fix old issues. Why pay when it’s so many bugs. Please delete all profiles with ———In headline. Those are bots. You can do a search in database. There are also profiles missing descriptions that should be deleted. Site should start with these modifications to improve. Women blocking men jus for saying hello shouldn’t be allowed. If the person doesn’t date a certain height, race, etc then those should come in the search! A lot of these women should be kicked off the site for not completing profile not speaking! It’s a waste of time! Once account is flagged many times Remove them! Add a new complaint for lack of communication since this is a dating site!.Version: 11.40

Crap - also bombarded with notifications you can’t turn offIt’s terrible. I’m getting messages from people who live way to far away, you can’t do much on the preference side of things and can’t be specific about what you do and don’t want people to see. I got so fed up of the notifications in the end I deleted it. I got loads of emails and took me ages to try and turn that off (I managed to do some but not all) but my phone notifications were even worse. I had a free account. I would get notifications about messages which was fine, but every time someone ‘liked’ me, I got a notification even though I can’t see who did because I’m using the free option. So why keep telling me if I can’t see. On top of that I received notifications every hour or two and when I clicked on it, I just kept getting taking to a page saying why not upgrade for so and so a month. Had enough, way to pushy on the upgrading!.Version: 15.61

Hitlers Dating AppThe app only lets you meet people that the designers think you should and it forces you to either lie, or enter personal details that you don’t want to share. Search filters automatically reset to the app defaults, limiting who you can actually find on the app. Then there’s the stupid “prefer not to say” response, which in 99% of cases implies whatever response is perceived as negative. How about you give users control of what personal information is visible on their account? E.g. Body type. If a user selects “prefer not to say”, then why make the body type field and response visible? It doesn’t change anything, except removing the implication that the user is fat or ashamed of their body in some way..Version: 11.80

POFThis site is full of ladies who are nit in here to actually meet - it’s a social media outlet for these unhappy married women who just want to play a game with people ..Version: 10.80

Homophobia and False profile deletion without reasonGod I have so much to say it doesn’t even make sense.... so let’s start from the beginning, I have been with POF for 3 months now and for some weird reason my profile keeps being reported for sexual harassment, and when I emailed POF they told me they can’t give me information on as to why my profile was deleted. So that’s been a constant battle since January. Then not to mention it’s MANY profiles on there who show naked butts, private part prints, homophobic comments or slurs, I’ve even reported people WITH inappropriate photos as a profile picture and nothing happens yet I post a picture of me with a dress on and it’s an issue, standing by a car is a problem for them As well which makes absolutely no sense, I go on that app to get away from the world we live in and the times were in as of now, yet I can’t even live on an app to express who I am and find love because I’m constantly being attacked, not only by the people, the owners themselves. All I’m going to say is this, don’t make an app where people are allowed to be themselves and try and use “community standards” as a way to bully or antagonize or dehumanize other people to make everyone else feel comfortable. THAT goes against MY community standards of bullying and harassment..Version: 15.41

So far-so not goodWhen someone blocks you-you should be notified. When you block someone you should be given the option of keeping your chat history in case you ever wanted to unblock them and patch things up. You can’t pick up where you left off and you’re left having to search for them again. I use the refine button to limit the amount of results that come up but I keep getting lots of profiles not suited to me at all. If I choose a certain race or religion for example-I get lots of profiles with any race and religion when I have quite clearly specified what I’d like to show up. I think there should be a nudge button where if someone hasn’t messaged you for a few days-and vice versa, you’ll be nudged and prompted to message them unless you have lost interest. People creating accounts with no display pic or a pic of a quote etc which isn’t actually them should be banned. It’s dangerous enough with online dating without people then creating a profile where their pic can’t be seen. Or the ones who won’t show their pic if they’re not interested. Online dating is daunting enough without people playing games and hiding their pic..Version: 8.50

Deleted for zero reason....I wake up one morning.. and I’m removed?! I’ve never had this issue with any app. Not even this till now & I’m hearing many others go through the same thing. I barely even use the app to be doing anything “bad/improper”. I’m always friendly and nice mindful & considerate to everyone yet I get removed?! I’m extremely disappointed with POF as I thought they were better than this. I can make a new account. But I want my new account back that just got removed as I am well over 5000% confident I have done Nothing to warrant such treatment even with Zero notification or email suggesting a warning or implying why they assume I shall be blocked. Even if they did I could explain I’ve done nothing wrong. I don’t even have to prove anything because I know with zero doubt. I feel maybe someone has been continuously reporting me to get me removed or something because they’re afraid I’ll find someone on there which is not my concern. If that was the case, POF should block the person spam reporting me instead. I googled reasons why you could be randomly unfairly removed and that was one of them. I literally am super confused. However POF I hope you get back to me and return my innocent using account back to me please and thank you..Version: 14.41

Fake & scamAs far as the app goes, it’s clunky and could do a lot better, although it functionally works (barely). So far as the membership base goes, it is full of scammers and fake profiles. While you’re a standard user you are very popular to lure you into signing up. Once you’ve paid the money you realise all the profiles are fake or scammer cam girls. After being signed up for a month or so the scammers give up on you and you’re left with a massive database of non responsive profiles. I cannot actually remember having even a single conversation with a real human on here. This app is a total waste of time and money. The POF people as a company should be totally ashamed that they are selling such a blatant scam ripoff service. Apple should should be ashamed to let such a terrible app on their App Store..Version: 12.10

I’m actually not gayYeah no matter how many times I set my preference to females it only shows me males. I’m not gay, so this is a pretty big problem for me on a dating app. So yeah thanks I’ll be deleting after my hour long profile set up.Version: 15.50

Banned for no reasonThis company loves sending automatic emails saying “If your account has been banned it’s because you’ve violated the following terms” LIES I dare you all the contact me through a REAL live customer representative and have them review my entire account. Because I guarantee you I haven’t violated anything. I have only even messaged 10 people and all whom messaged ME first. Secondly I only have 3 pictures on my profile all which have been taken from the shoulders up, no filters no nudity. Secondly my bio and summaries are each one sentence saying “Heyy I’m Ari” there was absolutely nothing about my account that was in violation. And it’s funny how I look this up and found thousands of other people with the same problem saying how they got banned out of the blue for no reason. What kind of service is this? There’s actual men on there who sexually harass women and get to keep their accounts yet you all ban the users who have done nothing wrong. I wish I could rate this less than one star because your app deserves none. What a waste of my time as well as all the other innocent people you have stolen money from. I will be sending in a report about this company. You all will not get away with theft..Version: 12.20

Has got worse not betterI have recently returned to POF having been off for a year or so. I thought apps were supposed to improve with updates not get worse. The most annoying thing is the “meet me” feature. It used to have the users town/city noted on the screen. So you could quickly see if someone was within a distance that suited you and along with their image you could make a quick decision to see if there is an initial mutual attraction. However, now I have no idea where anyone is. It’s too long winded to look at every profile. Surely the purpose of “meet me” is a quick fire thing. So now my inbox is invaded with lots of messages from mutual matches who live the other end of the country to me, which then leaves me either wasting time messaging these people saying we live too far apart or looking like a horrible person and ignoring them. It’s all so unnecessary, JUST PUT THE LOCATION BACK ON PLEASE! Finally in messages any new messages used to be highlighted and easy to spot, but that is no longer the case. PLUS another really annoying thing is whilst you’re reading/replying to someone if a new message comes in their little face shows in a circle above the message you’re writing. So it’s easy to get confused as to who you’re talking to. Whoever designed this clearly hasn’t used be app. Please make this app more user friendly again like it used to be..Version: 7.30

Rubbish, can’t restore purchase and forces you to pay through their websiteThe App forces you to purchase through their we site if you delete your account or lose access, you can’t restore your purchase. The “restore purchase button” doesn’t work meaning they force you to pay through their website which is more expensive than through app. You end up having two active subscriptions one through Apple which won’t work because you can’t restore purchase and the other through their website. It’s of the only apps I’ve used that prevented restoring purchases, had a one month subscription and lost access and couldn’t use the premium features at all. Apple please sort this out very bad business practices and I have all the evidence of this.Version: 15.41

Do not useThis app is a joke. There isn’t any option to disable email notifications which is horrible when about 90% of the likes are from fake account’s so your email (even though it’s my spam email) is being bombarded. It’s like someone is making so many fake accounts so the user would spend money on a subscription. But when you receive more than 10 like in under 5 minutes from suspicious profiles it’s just horrible. I wanted to try it because I have two friends who have had success on this app a long time ago. But now I’ll just say no to this app. I have to wait for 24hours before deleting and the app doesn’t even give you an option to delete account from within the actual phone app. It’s bad when you literally have to google “how to delete pof account on mobile”. Too many fake and suspicious profiles and because of that it’s also worrying having your pictures on the app. Stay away. But for those who genuinely found someone on this than you’re really lucky..Version: 13.10

Delete profileMost sites give you the option to delete profile under settings. Settings only allows for log out. You have to jump through hoops to delete profile.Version: 8.40

Another crappy dating appThis app seems to have gone the way of Tinder and the rest in that it is filled with fakes and bots and the genuine matches can only be accessed by wasting money to upgrade. What’s more you can’t control your preferred age range, I was always being matched with highly unattractive women 10 years older than me. These were once good apps but have now been taken over by greed and robots. Don’t bother. Also if you want to delete the app for whatever reason, firstly you can’t do so within the first 24 hrs of creating it (terrific security right there) and also u can’t even delete it from the app they make u go to some website to do it.. garbage site, bumble is much better!.Version: 13.50

Waste of timeThis has to be one of the worst experiences I’ve had with a dating app. The search options never show you what you are really looking for and you end up scrolling through for hours to the text someone that probably doesn’t use their profile or they won’t reply because pof has allowed men to spam woman with repulsive texts, this then affects people like me who aren’t like that and basically ruined my confidence as the women now treat you like every other man on the site. You search for people near you and there’s nothing, you have to search 50 miles and scroll for ages to then find the people near you. The amount of fake profiles is a joke as well! If you are a nice genuine person I’d personally avoid it as it makes you hate dating which is the opposite of what you’re there for.Version: 13.90

My account was DeletedMy account today was deleted for no reason. No warning, nothing. I just can't log in anymore. You won't send me a email to retrieve my account. On the Good side, good Lord is your app full of fake accounts that try to attract you to pay for premium stuff that doesn't do any good to anyone. Garbage website and App..Version: 10.60

Can’t post pics that are within POF rulesWorst dating site. Have not evolved like the rest. Now I know why ppl make fun of POF “That’s so 2011!” They are correct.Version: 11.10

Worst dating app and money wastageThey will encourage you to upgrade with misleading discounts that amount will be charged monthly but for whole year they charge once . There is no refund even when I reported within 12 hours . Ripping off! Messages don’t have a chat like experience and you will be directed to main screen . Search will not save your preference and once you click a profile from search result you will again be directed to home page which I don’t want . Have to give search parameters again and again. Don’t waste your time and money on this application..Version: 8.31

Be awareA lot of frustrated men who insult women for no reason.Version: 15.00

Tech gone wrongI’ve used a few of these, including match and okc. I’ve found pof to have more real women on it that are looking to meet and not just have a text buddy while they hang around with their cats. It does have scammers that send you links but I kept reporting and blocking those and they dropped away pretty quick. The search function doesnt usually do anything. It’s really just random. I’m looking for women above 5’10 and it just sends whatever. The app loves randomizing what you see, like every window has a line of visible women in it. These reset on their own so if you saw on in the messages window and went to the message, any women you wanted to look at would be refreshed away. Stupid programming, it can be very frustrating if you see a woman and it deletes her. Bet you’ll never see her again! It also definitely is sending me false “she wants to meet you” pings. Lol you can see on her profile she never viewed you, or she hasnt been online in a week, and women arent sitting there swiping right. I paid to meet real women and that’s fraud. In conclusion the pool of cis women looking to meet is better, but like most things now the app is rendered near useless by faith in garbage algorithms and stupid marketing strategies..Version: 11.21

They manipulate search resultsLike most dating apps, this app will lure you in but is geared around taking your money and nowt else. It is probably the lamest dating site you could ever possibly use. This app 'pretends' people are online when they actually aren't (have proof of this). They will also only let you see the last 3 people who viewed you, so if you get a lot of views in one day you won't be able to tell who they were - until you pay to upgrade app of course! If anyone 'likes' you - you have to pay to find out who. This site also gets a bad rep for false profiles - they are rife! The only thing POF has going for it is its amount of users (probably because it deems itself to be 'free' - but to reach anything like a decent amount of people you will need to pay). It will prefer to show you plenty of people miles away (I mean like 100 miles away) rather than anyone particularly local. It's algorithms are designed to show you little, unless you pay to upgrade. If you have any technical issues, don't expect a quick response (they took my money but didn't upgrade the account in my case). You're likely better off waving a "I'm single" flag at a bus stop than using this site..Version: 15.20

Real badBad quality of girls and overpriced for the upgrade version.Version: 5.90

The "SEARCH" feature could use a little tweakingOverall POF isn't too bad as far as a dating site goes. My biggest aggravation with POF however is the "Search" feature. Seems like whenever I try to narrow down my search filters to meet multiple parameters within a closer proximity, like anywhere between 5 to 50 miles, it always reverts back to 100 miles. So I can NEVER see anyone who meets my parameters near where I actually live. The "Search" feature will only let me narrow my distance parameters from where I live to 75 miles.... which to me is still a little nuts. Now I know for a FACT that some profiles MEET my expectations within the closer proximity range. I know this because I have seen them when scrolling through the pages and pages of noise. But POF wont allow the simplified search using multiple filters combo'd with a short distance to my given location. Why? Perhaps the reason it doesn't work for me is because I live in a rural area and POF's programming tries to find me more than just a handful of results. But that'd actually be better for me to view just a handful of results. I'm sure that this aggravation stretches far and wide for others who live in more rural areas as well. Please say you'll make it happen POF..Version: 6.50

Logging & UserKeeps logging me out and asks me to register again.Version: 4.10

Search feature waste of time!What have you done to the search feature? Mile set to 100 and girls age between 21 - 39 and you’ve shown me about 20 girls, really?! Only 20 girls in a 100 mile radius?! Who ever is running the app needs to be sacked!!! How about you put it back how it was and let people decide the parameters. If I set it to 10 miles and girls aged between 30 - 40 and it only shows me a few results, guess what, I’ll change it myself, it’s that simple. I don’t think you have ever had the search feature working like it should. What is the point of giving people options only for you to decide for them???? Update: nothing has changed only now I can’t sign in at all, I’ve forgot my password and when using you recover password feature it says it has sent me a link to my email but nothing arrives. I’ve done this about 6 times now and each time I get “we have sent an email to you inbox” but nothing arrives! You guys running this app are 100% useless!!! Update 2: Still can not sign in. I use the reset password feature but receive no email to reset! Unbelievable just how useless you guys are!.Version: 8.90

Good but needs improvement.I enjoy the app and it has some great parts, but as a first time user. It’s a little complicated, for starters a lot of stuff is blocked off by a premium mode. But every time I use the app I’m constantly being bugged about updating, which makes it hard to use. I can’t seem to find age settings, to change what ages people appear to be. And if they do it’s really hard to find, and it’s frustrating. You can see who views your profile which makes things really awkward, along with the age settings parts of the app are hard to use. And they use a tinder style slide for part of it which feels slapped on and u can’t even fully use, unless u upgrade. In short the app is fine and I enjoy using it, but there’s annoying things I notice..Version: 10.70

Too many bots.There are things I like about this app. And there are things I absolutely detest about it. First and foremost is the bots. Within a few minutes of logging on, like clockwork I will get a “x person would like to meet you”. A short time later this person just disappears. And this happens like clockwork. I receive identical messages from people. And sure. One or two people I would get. But it’s not just one or two people. I am convinced these people are bots. My second huge gripe is it showing people substantially out of my area. I can’t count the amount of people who I thought would be a great match, only to notice that for some reason I’ve been sent a match for someone 160 miles away. It’s very frustrating that I feel I need to check every single person to make sure they aren’t on the other side of the map..Version: 11.90

Website Not User friendly/terrible customer serviceI started to create a profile on POF a long time ago but was stopped in the middle of the process and never completed it. Nonetheless I get emails from POF about new matches. One day, I decided to log back into the account and just delete it. My password didn’t work so assuming I had forgotten it since it had been a long time since I signed in, I used the option to reset my password via email. I received the email for reset, followed the instructions and successfully updated my password. However, when I tried to sign in with the new password, it said my credentials were incorrect. I tried to sign in multiple times to make sure I wasn’t mis-keying my password, but had no luck. I tried to reset my password again. No luck. I decided to contact customer service which is difficult to find out how to do. Contact for support is nowhere in their website. I reached out to them on Twitter and they said they responded to me via email. I check my email. They tell me the account is inactive and I need to sign up again. I try to sign up again. It says my email is already in use. I tell them this. They say I’ve updated my profile and it’s active but I didn’t because I was never able to log in and I couldn’t create a new profile. I try to reset the password again. Reset was successful again yet I still can’t log in. Still no resolution..Version: 12.90

Worst Dating App EverThis app is so convoluted and discombobulated like no other dating app I’ve ever come across to-date! There’s so much going on in so many different areas and too many options that I don’t even know where to look for what or who half the time (and I’m a techie kind of guy); and I’ve been on plenty of the other dating apps before. Plus I’m in a major metropolitan area and the matches weren’t quite what I was expecting. It’s so bad that I even had two and a half months left remaining on my membership and I still deleted this app. BUT here’s another and MAIN reason I deleted it as well; there is NO option for you to delete your account at all. Yes, sure they will allow you to cancel your subscription... but that’s not the same as deleting your account. I didn’t want my account just left out there if I’m no longer using the app; I wanted an option to delete it like EVERY other dating app provides you with. So then (for me and my preferences), I had to go into each single area and put in different info and/or wipe out the info it would actually allow for. This might not be an issue for some... but to each their own. Two things I do not appreciate with any membership or subscription is: 1) You have to “call them” to delete your account (which POF doesn’t even do that) or 2) You do not have the option to delete your account from the app or even online. That’s a no-go for me!.Version: 14.41

Messages not being sentI’m sending messages but they are sadly not being sent, I’ve contacted the support team and they said they are too busy to deal with my request... if I can’t send messages then this app is of no use to me..Version: 12.51

Bots and fake accounts galoreGo ahead and fork out money to subscribe if you like the idea of being inundated by fake accounts and bots wanting to “meet you” or send you messages trying to get you to go to a malware or phishing link to “enable video calling” in POF. I spent all my time just deleting email notifications from scam accounts that disappear and checking meet me requests from obvious scam accounts written in broken English where every “woman” is completely subservient and just wants someone to cook and clean for. Biggest waste of time and money. There is obviously no checking of any kind to ensure anyone signing up is a genuine human and in the location they claim they are, and security is so poor that it’s obviously a simple matter to hijack accounts and repurpose them. Stay well clear..Version: 11.90

Not worth the hassleI created an account, put time and effort into it, and about 12 hours later it logged me out and refused to let me log on, and I received no email when I clicked ‘forgot password’. I re-created the entire account, only to have the exact same thing happen 5 mins later. Entire account deleted again. No reasons, no infringements that would warrant a closure (normal pics and I had only sent two messages) I would recommend if you like getting frustrated.Version: 11.50

CuriousThere have been several men who complain that I’ve been online and not responded to a message they sent me. I’ve been quite shocked by their attitude, calling me very rude and ill mannered. On each of those occasions I have simply either been too busy to respond immediately, or online but working, not necessarily monitoring the site. One ‘gentleman’ recently only gave me 1-2 minutes between sending more and more irate comments. At the time I was short of time, rushing to work and really upset, when I finally managed to check the site, to read his nasty posts. Is it possible to warn people that, we cannot always respond immediately and don’t appreciate being reprimanded, when it’s unfair?.Version: 9.60

Falling behind other apps nowQuite sad that POF developers aren’t interested in helping people or making this the best app. The reporting system is still limited, fake profiles still a huge problem for genuine people still. The meet me and matches page still don’t bring up those within your filter parameters. The catch of the day in a yellow border come up every 3/4 swipes which becomes annoying. Would be nice to develop a bumped into notification/marker/flag? Would be nice to develop a page for those that are free to meet page so for those that don’t have a lot of free time because of work and kids can set up times/ possible locations/ activities so people can have the opportunity to meet more?!!! Also the deleting of accounts with no helpline, no reason, no notification, no opportunity to sort anything just because someone reports you and wants you off is really tiring now POF, definitely better apps coming forward and your behind the times. Annoyed and frustrating as it’s getting worse, for those genuine it’s not’s been a week I can’t get on. I’m above board, not rude, genuine pics, looking for long term and think it’s time POF gets smarter and bring yourself more competitive again....Version: 8.10

Idk what happenedI used to love this app, it was my go-to dating app. I deleted it for awhile because I ended up getting into a relationship with someone I met from the app. The relationship ended so I decided I would give the app another try. First it wouldn’t let me use my old account because it was saying my information was, which could have been true. But I try to use the ‘forgot password’ link and after I put in my email, it says it will send me a link to reset my password and I never get an email. I check through all of my folders and spam and it’s never in there no matter how many times I request to change my password. So I just figured I’d start over with a new email address. I get logged in and my profile all set up and it’ll work for about an hour. Then I’ll go back in and it’s logged me out somehow. I try to log back in and it tells me my information is incorrect, it shouldn’t be since I just made the profile, I know what my information is, but I try to reset my password on my new account and it does the same thing. I never get an email and it won’t let me access my account. I really wish they would get whatever is happening fixed because I would like to continue using this app..Version: 8.10

Pass resetYour password reset doesn’t work so do I just have to make an account all over again? Why bother having the option to reset?.Version: 15.50

No customer support when you have problemsMajor problem with accounts being hacked. Private personal info stolen, including photos. You are not safe on this app. I challenge you to try to contact customer support through their website or through the app. You will discover you cannot. They have no customer support. You’ll find links and even 1 contact form. However, fill out the form and you’ll see the message does not send. You get a message saying ‘forums have been closed’ when you click send. Absolutely no customer support when you have problems. You can’t contact anyone. Links on the website say you have to be logged in to contact support. When you are logged in, there are no contact links. I managed to dig deep and found a contact form. When I filled it ima me clicked send, I got a message saying ‘forums have been closed down’. Avoid this app completely, they are uncontactable (pretty sure that’s not legal when you run a public service website like this). I have had account problems and now cannot access my account. I believe it had been hacked. I have no way of getting back in, my photos and personal information are on the account and I can’t access it. Also have no way of contacting anyone connected to this website. They are terrible. Avoid this app. Don’t go near it..Version: 11.21

Starts good but poor functionalityAlthough inundated with notifications at the start, these dwindle away and difficulty trying to conduct a conversation frustrated as the app doesn’t update messages, unless you go out of messages and then back in. This causes unnecessary delays and isn’t conducive to connecting with a potential mate. Additional notifications include every time someone ‘views’ you. A waste of time if there’s no communication as you can’t click on the person who viewed you without paying for an upgrade. Although better than Tinder as people need to complete some questions which gives an idea about the type if person and what they are looking for, when swiping you only see an age and the location they have nominated. Often a name can indicate if someone is serious or not. Alternatively being able to swipe through people who tick the boxes for you would be an improvement. POF also takes more time to scan through the answers most relevant to you, contrasting colours would make it easier to quickly scan info to find out if someone wants children, for example, before swiping left it right. The idea behind POF is good and makes more sense for someone looking for a relationship, compared to Tinder. That they have to enter some basic info about what they are looking for and about themselves puts it a long way ahead. However, the app requires much more development to improve the user experience..Version: 7.20

Terrible changeWhat are you guys thinking? You are working hard, so many major changes in short time, but the usage becomes nerve wrecking. Since all those gifs want to be loaded in, app slows down dramatically. Why no optout for gifs? I want to see someone adult using those oversized gifs in dating. Then notification doesn't reset when closing the reply window, app has to be called up and closed for that again. And then... you send notifications regularly even thou no one wrote or looked!!! Thats a huge trust misuse every time, because people have other things to do than getting fouled by an app 😉.Version: 10.50

Wow, Negative reviews!Was going to downtown this app but the negative reviews are massive, scammers,, Trolls, fake accounts,, overcharging,, deleted profiles... wow the list goes on.. how can this be possible?? 😯 amazing how hundreds of paying customers are venting their frustrations yet the app presenters are not answering to 95% of the customers?? 😯 update:: downloaded the app and couldn’t execute the process of actually using it, they were asking very personal questions like “ what’s your income” then they want to know your address and telephone number 😂 other dating sites are just a few clicks and your in without private information such as these guys require 😜.Version: 15.41

DisappointedI have been an on and off member for a while now of Plenty of fish on a friends recommendation. So I gave it a go not knowing what a mess I was walking into. Literally the only people I ever “matched” with were hookers or escorts. While the search wasn’t as bad as some it was kind of terrible. It never took into account where you were when looking for matches only where the majority of people were so if you weren’t in Seattle or Tacoma it would recommend a million people in Seattle and Tacoma because that’s apparently where everyone lives. It did give some recommendations near where I was but the digging I had to go through to find them was cruel. Then when you match someone and it could be a person! Nope, next thing you know your inbox is full of “hey sexy I’m an escort in your area!”... no just no while sending you your profile picture. And at least on the guys side you can’t get rid of your matches, I looked and looked and looked hoping to find where to narrow down my matches so it didn’t constantly say over a dozen, those dozen being the hookers that won’t go away. I know girls unmatched me but I can’t I match them so I’m stuck having to look at the escorts forever unable to delete them. And then as your going through the “meet me” side of it you decline someone and then three swipes later the same exact person appears in front of you. I just declined you? How many profiles do you have to show up that many times that quickly?.Version: 13.00

Privacy harvest appWill ask for every detail in your life including your address and income. I registered with a dummy new email and sure after I started to receive tons of spam emails. Move away from those app for your own privacy and security..Version: 11.90

Hope taken away every time I login!Absolutely filled with fake accounts. Clicked on multiple profiles with the exact same bio, heading, and even water marks on photos. (Some of which ask you to upgrade your service to message, and they are fake profiles. Pretty scummy) It’s like they don’t even try to filter these profiles out. In the meet me, I’ve swiped left on multiple profiles and weeks later they are back on my recommended matches. It’s like that whole feature completely disregards your choices. There’s no way to see the last time someone has even been active unless you pay. I’ve paid for the service in the past and got nothing from it. I don’t appreciate doing that and then when I decide to try the free route, I’m being pressured into paying again. This app really only stands out because it’s one of the very few dating apps that will allow you to interact with people without paying. If it wasn’t for that alone, I don’t think this platform would really be worth the effort, or the money....also when I paid I never saw a feature to only interact with others who pay. So I either missed it, it’s only on the females side of things, or it’s a complete scam to entice people to pay. Which would be pretty bad if so..Version: 8.50

Wouldn’t recommendThe app is confusing to figure out, you need to put way too much information about yourself before you can look at other people’s profiles and you need to wait 24 hours before you can delete your account..Version: 13.90

SpamToo many catfish accounts asking for email address.Version: 5.60

Fake datesTo many fake profiles!! This site should be better controlled because complaining about it does nothing!! Women need to feel safe and it’s not on here..Version: 7.80

Complete waste of time.I have messaged people on this app for a while now and received but one reply. This reply was from a bot trying to advertise. The time spent trying to create an account (putting your heart and soul into it) so you can hopefully meet someone that you would spend the rest of your life with is a waste. If you do not subscribe for paid services, you will be trolled by the app itself with random bot accounts. You will see people who are interested and want to meet but won’t find out that these people are obvious bots. Once you find matches you will go through an endless supply of “people” logging on to say they are interested and want to meet up but, they will never respond to your messages. The messages will go unread forever. This is Weird because if they were interested and wanted to meet then, they would respond. Also, I have been added to “people’s” favorite list at least 20 times over the past two days. Once you subscribe and try to find out who these matches are that found you so are let down because their account was deleted or removed by POF. Seems like a scam to give the perception that someone is always looking. If you want to waste your time and money....well really....your and pay for this app. I’m not sure what the legitimacy was given by the comments previous to mine but, they are wrong. Please don’t waste your time on this app..Version: 7.90

Twice made new profile that now don’t existI set up an account added all the information into it uploaded pictures and even started messaging people. To my surprise when I next went to go online it said my password was wrong. I went through the I forgot my password and it said if your email is registered then I will receive an email to which I never got. I checked my junk mail box too. So I set up another account and it allowed me to use my same email so clearly that told me that my account I created was no more. I done everything on this new account adding pictures etc and started messaging people again. This was last night that I set the second one up. I wake up this morning and go to log in and guess what. Incorrect password again. Go to forgotten my password and it sent me an email to which I haven’t received yet again. Poor app and if no one contacts me to sort this out then I will clearly know that no one behind plenty of fish actually care about the users on there..Version: 12.20

Deleted my account for no reasonI’ve had my POF account for about 6 years and use it on an off. A few days ago I tried to log in and my account has been deleted without warning and I’m unable to sign up again. I have no idea why. I followed all the guidelines, photos are appropriate, i have not been harassing anyone, hell, I haven’t even messaged anyone in a long time AND my profile was hidden! I have emailed them several time but have only received a generated replies. I’m really not happy about it. I wouldn’t recommend to any of my friends and I’ll be taking by business else where..Version: 13.70

App Works Fine, Platform is FlawedAs an application Plenty of Fish does what you would expect. The notifications work properly, the user interface while nothing exceptional or noteworthy gets the job done, and performance is responsive the majority of the time. One major issue though seems to be consistency. Portions of the app have been updated to meet a newer era design standard while other sections of the applications still match the website which is quickly becoming archaic in appearance and function. However as a platform the site is deeply flawed and I cannot recommend it. As others have mentioned the search parameters are often ignored if the search does not meet a nebulous criteria for minimum number of results. Over time the amount and type of information the platform displays has changed with little rhyme or reason. One of the biggest problems I have encountered is the sheer amount of spam bots and false profiles. On average I would say 3/4 of my matches are with profiles that are not real users and rather just a bot designed to get you to click a risky link. This level of turnover is unacceptable and goes to show the lack of scrutiny on behalf of POF. Overall there are much better dating platforms out there. I would seriously consider one of them before coming to fish in this sea..Version: 11.50

BuggedCan’t change the age on the search filters. Pretty fundamental problem. App is trash without that..Version: 15.60

The little site that could, but didn’t.Unfortunately the times that we are living has been influenced by people that feel that are untitled to the top 20%. And everyone else is beneath them. SMV (sexual market place value) is being ignored and because of this there a lot of lonely people out there. If your reading this just know education doesn’t mean intelligence. There are people out there that believe that if your well educated that you will find someone as educated or more that yourself. I believe the saying is water finds its own level. Unfortunately that’s not the case. Just know a man looks for different things that a woman does and a woman looks for different things that a man does. But now women act like men and men act like women. The hole situation is upside down. There’s no more ying and yang. No more complimenting each other. It’s much more about selfishness and resource Acquisitions. Maybe one day people will see each other as the complimentary to each other. But I will continue searching for the elusive unicorn. Maybe there’re out their. But if this elusive isn’t found it will be ok. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by friends and family. I’ll never be alone..Version: 10.41

Fix the siteI’ve paid to upgrade in the hopes of weeding out the fake profiles and to have a better experience with further options available with membership only to find that the websites information isn’t even correct. One persons apparently viewed me an hour ago yet it also says they haven’t been online since Monday. Another profile says online November but upon opening their profile it says last online February 11th. In messages it says message read however when I open it it says not read. So is it read or isn’t it??? I’m also constantly being matched with people in Perth...I’m in NSW Constantly being matched with drug users...I’ve stated I do not wish to date them in my profile. And this is just the start of the issues. Please fix the app ASAP or I will be seeking a refund.Version: 15.20

AlrightNeed more members , try to emulate facebook . Spread the word.Version: 2.40

WorthwhileAlthough meeting someone is a definite possibility and I do recommend the app, the app is consistently making false notifications, doesn’t actually hide the people you’ve blocked, is plagued with fakes and scammers, and messages are too heavily censored without letting you know that your message wasn’t delivered so you could be waiting for a reply without either party realising the censored message wasn’t sent. If it can detect a censorable word, then why not just deliver the message with the word redacted. Fake profiles are quickly removed once reported though. I would also just stick with the free version. There’s no real benefit paying for any of the so called extras, but having said that, some people that you would like to message only accept messages from upgraded members..Version: 10.20

Can’t Create a ProfileThe app is useless if it won’t let me create a profile. I have old ones I could also use, but there is not option to log in, only to create a new profile..Version: 15.50

Terrible AppTerrible app, banned three times in a row for no reason. Read every guideline available and didn’t cross any of those. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone..Version: 14.10

Pof reviewThink it’s needs some improvement needs to be more specific on what you are looking and can choose for example height, age, race, hair type for eg colour bald etc also body type a lot of the times people put there athletic or thin and there the opposite these options need to be better policed so you get what you put in as options!!! also need to police fake profiles there are a lot on here!! And also when it says they said yes not always the case. Because they haven’t necessarily looked at your profile or responded! And costing is a little pricey!!.Version: 8.10

Good but too many fake profilesI report fake profiles immediately. They are super easy to spot after a while. But I find that they aren’t taken down. When I hide my profile, I would prefer to have the choice to hide it from everyone including people that I have already had contact with. Profile pictures of flowers and sunsets should be eliminated. There should be a way of reporting that to help with it..Version: 11.50

TroubleI am having trouble logging into my account country1966girl.😕and I paid to meet my Mach and I can’t log on to my account, if it is not fixed so I can log on then I should get a refund. Bonnie.Version: 15.60

Deleted my account and won’t be going back!!This site has went to pure $#!T. I deleted my account earlier tonight and I won’t be back. The # of fake profiles are astounding!! They used to REQUIRE your main photo to be a CLEAR photo of your face but that’s went by the wayside and so many women use signs, dogs, cars, scenery and all sorts of other things as their profile photo. Those women are STUPID!!! I'm a man and I've been a non-paying member for years. POF used to be a really good site, but over the past few years I have seen so many fake accounts it's not funny. Here lately I've been seeing all kinds of accounts with nude women promoting sex sites and it's disgusting. What used to be a good site has now turned to garbage. It's just a matter of time before this site loses its traffic of real people and just goes down. I have reported all the profiles I have seen and yet they are still there!! I thought profiles/photos had to be reviewed before they could show up!?!? Somewhere along the line things have changed and the ball got dropped and now you see so many fake/scam/porn profiles it's not funny. I won't pay for any personal site just because this is what seems to happen to everyone of them. I'm thinking about deleting my account due to all the fakes. The search/match feature is useless in my opinion. I put in what I'm looking for and get everything but that!!.Version: 9.51

So much to fixThe app is largely fine, though the editing features on the messaging need work as often you have to delete everything after whatever you want to change to make a simple correction or the cursor keeps jumping back to the end of the message. You’d think this would be automatic? Biggest problems are with whatever the back end is. Search is pretty useless and ignores settings like distance and age filters which are pretty important. My favourite is getting a list of matches that pof generates daily only to find that I cannot message some because it’s ignored the other person’s filters when putting them into my match list - genius. The only real positives are the large number of users and the ability to message anyone without paying. But the flaws above and inability to do something as basic as delete your account are VERY off-putting. If you’ve got endless patience, great, but otherwise I’d stick with Tinder and at least enjoy swiping..Version: 14.20

An extremely outdated appPOF is a perfectly fine dating app. It allows you to sign up, search, message and pretty much use all aspects of the website/app entirely for free. The problem is the app hasn’t had an update in years (it’s the same app I used when I tried POF out 5-6 years ago). They may do updates for bugs but the general design looks like something out of a bygone era of geocity websites. On the website you can send any length message you want, on the app messages simply don’t send after 80ish letters, there’s no gestures for swiping back a page (the entire app is button press designed and it’s horribly dated), anyone you’ve messaged still shows in the search listing and you have no idea if you’ve ever messaged them before (this includes blocked members), the app is EXTREMELY slow (being it was optimized for an iPhone 4/5 and not current phones), the “whose online” search listing is completely inaccurate and will show members who are currently online sandwiched between members who haven’t logged on in years, the “meetme” is exclusively used my bots and blows your phone up with notifications from nonexistent users, notification settings can’t be changed in the app, etc etc etc. It’s a solid dating website that is plagued by an unbelievably outdated, unoptimized and extremely user unfriendly app..Version: 11.20

Scammers!!!This is the worst site by miles for scammers. They’re always good looking girls and say they’ll date smokers. That’s usually the first giveaway. Then they ask if you’re real and then they try to get you on POF video which I didn’t know there was such a thing or they try to get you on Whatsap etc. Why do they try to get you on Whatsap etc?.Version: 11.10

Too much questionsToo much question during signing up, It seems as a spying app for collecting data. Why should I enter my parent marital status or my siblings count? Why should I indicate my income?.Version: 14.70

This dating apps a totally fake appI don’t trust this site.Version: 15.41

Scam scam scamThis used to be a pretty good site/app I met quite a few people on here in the past. This app has changed for the worse and keeps getting worse. I never wrote a review till now because I tried on and off hoping this app would go back to the good it was. It just never happened. People scammers I mean advertise pornography, prostitution, etc. First off that’s illegal second this was and is supposed to be just a dating site. That’s disgusting this app developer does not monitor that issue and ban these false advertisers for being on this site. The only reason I give this app a two out of five stars and not one or even zero is and was because I did meet people on here. Some good some not so good meet ups/ dates but that is dating and that is how this app used to be run. Either way I’m writing this review cause I did try this site a couple of times again hoping it would go back to the way it used to be but just did not happen. Anyone real in general trying to find someone on pof chances are very slim in my opinion because there’s a lot of scammers on this app. Will they fix it? I don’t know but I will not be back or try this app ever again. Plus I did have an upgraded account that I did pay for but again I got ripped off money wise, time wise, and in general of the purpose of dating wise. I will not be back on this plenty of fish app ever again..Version: 8.80

Land of the fake profilesLast time I was single I enjoyed using the Plenty of Fish (POF) website. This time around not so much. About two thirds of the profiles are not real people but rather photos stolen from somewhere on line with profiles written by poor destitute people in either West Africa or Russia. For many it’s a quick one two hustle from an introduction to them trying to get you to part with your hard earned money. Their command of the English language is pigeon English at best. All proclaim to be Engineers yet can’t construct a proper sentence. All the men are widowers with no children (I guess it’s easier if the story isn’t complicated). All and all a waste of time. I can see this site going out of business if they don’t do something soon to correct this issue. I will add paying for “premium membership” doesn’t help either unless you select the option “only responds to other premium members” in which case you will be limited to a few dozen people. I can’t help but wonder why the owners of POF don’t just invest in some better firewall protection. Dating sites are a multi million dollar business but not when those users can never actually meet real people..Version: 11.30

RestrictionsAge is a big issue...also, there is not a basic information for gays. Top, bottom or versatile....Version: 15.41

Game not social meetLike others before me, I have found that people treat this site as a game not a chance to find a potential friend and partner. The 'meet me' function is a one-way game where the players waste others people's time sending messages they don't mean. It's just like playing 'hot or not.' Most contacts do not read profiles, seem surprised when you are not their type. Support doesn't exist, no useful features like searching on interests, distances are all incorrect, and search returns are all inaccurate. The matches function returns all gender of one specific age. Some of the profile categories are pointless - sibling position (youngest/oldest), pets, drugs, etc yet education is vague until degree. There is no search on lifestyle such as bookish v sporty v travel so one could search on personality type. This might help with the suggested matches. Also introvert v extrovert would be helpful. Why do so many people want to walk on beaches?.Version: 9.40

A dating site for bots and pros.Don’t bother. In the first day you’ll get a ton of messages from people. But all fake profiles. Some designed to get you to subscribe and some design to proposition you for ‘you know what’. Like all of these dating sites, pure scam to designed to keep vulnerable people constantly paying until they give up. How these dating sites are allowed to operate with so much negative feedback is beyond me. Like any product you should get your money back if it doesn’t work. If they can’t stop fake profiles and bots or make better system no one should pay. It’s garbage..Version: 12.00

So many addsHavnt been here for long but at this point I’m not expecting the results iv been lead to believe.Version: 12.50

Plenty of Catfish, trash app.If you're male, don't bother. You'll get 4 or 5 fake profiles a day, wanting to 'meet' you. What they really want is your email. If you have a brain, you'll work this out pretty quickly. The whole 'free' thing is rubbish. Paywalls everywhere. Most(real) women, who are very far from perfect, will encourage you to contact them but won't respond if you aren't Mr. perfect yourself. If you want to free online date, stick with Tinder, this is a demoralising, depressing waste of time(& money, if you are a bit naive & believe their constant, pushy claims that throwing down some cash will give you a better chance, I didn't but I guarantee it won't). Don't waste your time..Version: 6.50

Don’t report peopleThey have this new thing where every time you login on your phone they ask for your feedback...after seeing it 30 times I decided to give feedback on a guy that had a fake profile and when I asked him about it blocked me (which is very typical for fake profiles) the NEXT day my account was deleted! I’m the most respectful person and nice. The filthy things men have said to me and they stay on the site. UNBELIEVABLE..Version: 11.21

An upgrade is a must!POF app seems to be years behind other messaging apps. I like to send multiple messages to a person instead of writing one big one in a massive bubble. It’s just a preference of mine and I know people who like the same. Unfortunately every time I send a message, I’m taken back to a main mailbox and I have to open the chat again to send another message. Why oh why?? Also, the messages aren’t pushed automatically if I have a chat open. I will only get a little notification that a person sent me a message and it’ll only show if I click on that notification. Another issue is people’s ‘favourite’ meet me option! I never used it and, no matter how many meet me notifications I get, I never will. Why don’t you offer a choice of turning this option off and, as a price to pay, the profile will be excluded from viewing? Please, think about it!.Version: 10.20

Notnwhat you tv ad portraysSo many people on here still after having a break for 12 months that were hear 12 months ago that are still online looking for that “someone” special. So many fakes, superficial photo gorkers and liars on here that it makes it obvious that online dating is for the glamorous, or the pathetic, or the game players that pray on honest people looking for that someone special, which, online are very fee and far between. Then on top of that the profiles pof approve that are fake adult sites. In total is a good idea but with very little way to stop that idiots from stuffing it up for legitimate singles wanting to find something more meaningful and long term.Version: 8.40

HackedI haven’t used my account in probably over a year and I randomly got emails that I got a message. (A lot of emails that I am still receiving saying the same thing in fact) I figured I must be hacked so I tried logging in to an account who’s information I have long since forgotten but I was able to change my password at least. Then when trying to log in with the new password to see what the heck is going, on it wants me to verify my phone number, but the number was not my own which confirms to me my account has been hacked. I tried to just delete my account from their website that isn’t working either saying I input the wrong information. I’ve tried reaching out twice to the help page regarding the problem of which I received a generic reply saying “it seems like I can’t login” and gave me instructions on how to reset my password. I responded to that reiterating my problem and didn’t hear back. I filed another request for help explaining the problem again around three days ago and again, still haven’t heard back. The lack of haste regarding the issue of my personal information being hacked is unacceptable, I’m an easy going person and almost never leave negative reviews. But a company that has left me feeling violated with still no solution is not one I would recommend..Version: 13.30

Londoner UKPOF keep changing MY choices of ages and distance. I know it’s a free dating website, but...! I‘m an older woman living in SW Greater London looking for going out friendships. In ‘ Refine Search’ I put between 60 to 80, POF ALWAYS change it to FIFTY THREE to NINETY EIGHT ages! I also put in 15 miles as I’m looking for a local man, THEY ALWAYS change it to ONE HUNDRED miles! ONE HUNDRED miles is WAY TOO far away to be able to call/meet up with someone, on a regular basis, or make a spontaneous phone call to go out! It seems POF WANTS to look good in getting us matches, BUT..., doing THIS is just wasting ALL our time! Why DOES POF CHANGE ANYTHING in our profiles? The App IS FOR US, NOT POF! North American countries are HUGE. BRITAIN is NOT, so C’MON POF STOP CHANGING OUR choices AND take in to consideration smaller countries, like MINE, 100 miles is WAY TOO FAR AWAY to have a decent friend/relationship with someone. Another thing WHY can’t we look for BOTH sexes, in this day and age is just stupid. I’m straight, but, I’d love to also make friends and meet with local ladies too? Change THIS, NOT ages and distance, to suit POF!.Version: 12.90

God Awful AppThis app is one of the worst “dating” apps, if you can qualify it as such, on the market. First, there are next to no profiles in my area. Most of the profiles that show up are for people in the next state over. On top of that, the girls on there are of about the trashiest quality out there. On the homepage you can see a list of possible profiles to look at down at the bottom, but in the rare chance you see someone interesting after clicking another option, when you go back to the homepage the list of profiles has been shuffled and there are “new” profiles to look at. On top of that, I never had a conversation with an actual person. If I messaged someone I never got a response back, and the only profiles that messaged me first were bots trying to get me to sign up for their porn virus link. There are so many bots. Developers, please find a better set of algorithms or whatever to screen profiles before they sign up. The user interface is ugly looking from a graphic designer’s perspective. Don’t waste your money on premium either, I thankfully didn’t as I could tell it was already going to be a waste. The only real benefit of premium is you can message certain profiles that have blocked themselves from being messaged by the basic free account I signed up with. All in all, don’t waste your time with this app, you’re never gonna find someone on it, unless you like viruses from bots..Version: 11.40

Sorely disappointedI'm a paying customer because it was the only way for me to see who were supposedly wanting to meet me. Some I've messaged to simply say hi and they are bogus accounts or fake people pretending to be the person on their profile. Also my messages don't even get sent out to people I actually do find interesting enough to message. This dating site feels like a scam.. I've been a member more than once in the hopes of meeting cool folks.. but I'm being showing my matches are people that are way too young, or the opposite sex, and the constant glitches are ridiculous the app works intermittently. Before being a paying customer I had all the people supposedly wanting to meet me.. now I'm a paying member and nothing happens., then you want more money for some other feature to be seen first... or more...Like really guys.., the key is to keep customers coming back or spreading the word so that you get positive feedback and more clients. My membership is over in Aug.. which I'm sure on my last date before it expires .. I will mysteriously get people wanting to meet me. This app is like a fake gas station.. you pay for services not rendered... some of us have no time to find dates on the outside and the dating site is more feasible... now I'm not so sure.. and I waited and put off many times to give a review because I kept hoping for a different outcome.. no bueno, I don't recommend this dating site unless you have time to chat with a fake person or looking to screw..Version: 13.60

Great AppI have tried lots of dating apps the worst being tinder as they ban you for no reason and have no support base. There just taking people’s money they don’t care, but POF has great support when it comes to any issues you may or may not encounter. I myself have not had any issues with the site and have met some nice lady’s here. It’s run professionally and you can tell it is after familiarising yourself with the site and not giving up after a week lol. Sure you have the usual time wasters and woman who don’t reply but you will find there the same ones that never leave lol. Be patient and you will meet someone genuine..Version: 13.00

They do not delete your informationFirstly they do not delete your information. Even when you select delete account. Mine was active for weeks after and so tried to manually edit all my data. Also the app is very poor, you get notifications three times over, one in the message section, one in the notification section, one in the viewed profile section. So every time you need to clear three sections of the app to remove the notification. Extremely disappointed. No responses from emails. Simply the worst app I ever used in any category..Version: 7.60

Be waryI think this is the same concept as most other dating sites, but to me this method of dating doesn't seem very 'organic', or very safe. I started using dating apps as a teenager and continued into my early 30's but it is a huge risk to a woman's safety, and I seemed to be only given the option of men who were ironically either criminals, military men or police. Men also scoped me out just to say something about mental health, as if that was all they matched with me for, and that started when I was only 19 and flared up again for me at 33 years old. I never said anything out of the ordinary, or anything at all in some case before they started mentioning something about my sanity..Version: 13.20

Freezes.... EVERYTIME!Can’t use.. useless..Version: 9.10

Plenty of fakesI log on for 2 seconds and I get 5 fake profiles liking me and messaging me. Every god damn time for the last 4 months at least. Like you think pof would've caught on by now....Version: 9.70

Function are a bit lame but not to bad an appThe actual functions of the app are a bit lame. As in you set your age / location settings hit search and this app thinks it knows better so provides a larger range of people but outside those parameters. Why? You are searching within parameters for a reason. Also since the last update mine is constantly saying I’m not connected to the internet and the only way to use the ap is to turn off my phone then on again and it will work. It’s getting rather annoying and it’s only just started happening. People match then never speak. This isn’t a dating app as such more of a hook up site to 90% of those on it. Needle in haystack comes to mind. However I think that’s the way of modern dating it’s all internet based rather than actual talking and going out 🙁🤷‍♀️.Version: 11.50

Decent app too many botsThe app itself is easy to use, and intuitively designed. However the POF vetting process needs work - way too many spam bots can easily create accounts every day. All the bots seem to have numbers at the end of their profile names. The vetting process on bumble or tinder is a bit better, and there are less bots. Messages go missing, when trying to go back to older messages you get the error ‘this user has closed their account or had their account deactivated’ even if you were talking to them just hours ago..Version: 9.80

I am not going to do it, but look at all those that are beautiful and cannot get dates, either :-)POF is nice that it's free to reply to messages. The initial sender of the message us to pay the monthly fee. so if a person on the free account once to show interest, they view the profile of the paying customer, causing them to appear upon the who viewed me list. They might even be able to send a wink. If they are really interested, The free customer simply means to view the profile of the person they like, every day. Their face will become familiar to the pain customer, and will always be near the top of the list when the paying customer sort by date, in their viewed me. So actually, that is like real life! OK yeah that should be like four or five stars for the POF rating. I still have never gotten a day off of POF though. I am a paying customer this summer, so may have to pay for professional profile help. I spent $600 last Tuesday and $400 last night at the Gentlemens club, just for lap dances so I can hug and caress slender women. I think most of the girls on POF that actually date, date those exciting guys who don't have any money and don't have a car and probably don't have a job. Therefore it is a societal problem, not really a problem with me..Version: 8.10

Plenty Of FakesThe majority of female POF users are literal prostitutes who will generally initiate conversation with “hey” or “looking for me”. If the user name has plenty of numbers or random letters, that’s your first clue. They will then send you either a link to a dodgy looking website where you are expected to enter your credit card details or they may ask you to add them on Snapchat. Much of the dialogue appears to be automated. The app could be exponentially improved, simply by filtering out these fake profiles via enhanced verification. In its current state, I would give the app zero or less-than-zero stars if this were an option..Version: 10.41

It’s changedPOF has definitely changed over the years. I miss the days they had an instant messenger built in, was so easy to get talking to people. More and more options are getting hidden behind a pay wall these days. Everyone just uses the Meet Me feature which is not free, people just want to swipe right on all the studs with washboard abs and not much else. Tinder really killed POF.Version: 15.60

Keep showing males profilesI can’t change it.Version: 15.41

Painful app. Full of botsRidiculous app. Don’t pay a cent. You’ll regret it.Version: 15.50

Search is uselessPoor app. The search is useless as it overrides what you select and expands the search but gives unsuitable matches far too far away and of an unsuitable age range. I entered my criteria for a reason. I’m not interested in someone half or twice my own age 200 miles away! Otherwise it’s not a bad app for free but needs an incognito setting to allow you to look without showing as live online to stop those who don’t like that you haven’t immediately replied getting funny or those who you are chatting with think you are talking to loads of others when actually you may be just checking something on their own profile or clearing out messages you aren’t interested in. The “meet me” is pointless as most don’t have it and those that hit it have never read your profile. Room for improvement. Certainly not worth paying for but at least bit does let you message and do quite a lot for free so good on that score..Version: 10.20

Depends what you’re afterIf you’re a beautiful person then go for it as this app would be ideal. If like me you’re pretty ordinary I think you’ll have more chance finding someone in your local supermarket. Too many pretentious people who just love being in front of a camera and gaining likes. Been using it for so long and aside from the usual scammers who message you and pretend they are someone else, the rest ignore you. I really don’t think it’s worth the hassle of dating apps and may as well go to the pub and meet people and worst case scenario you can just get drunk. Costs a fortune on this app to even get noticed anyway and like I said previously unless you look amazing there’s not much point as you’ll still be ignored. Anyway rant over. If you want to give it a go then go for it and I wish you all the best..Version: 14.50

Too many fakes and bots.Far too many. Every time I log on I get 3-4 profiles that have been made in 1 minute trying to get me to click a link. How many “escorts in my area?” Lol. I know there’d be a few. But I can tell these because fake profiles are American women. And normally a hotties pic straight out of a magazine or the occasional average looking but kinky pics get many poor sod clicking haha. I’ve been scammed when I was 18 years younger. Make it impossible to make fake profiles or at least fess up and admit it. There are only 30 females per 1000 males. Yea?.Version: 10.90

Pictures and moreI’ve noticed that loads of male profiles are allowed to upload memes of quotes but when I upload one right away I get sent a message stating it’s against the pof guidelines. I’ve tried a few times to upload fun loving memes/quotes about love a few times not rude or abusive at all but Pof never let me upload any. Plus I’ve noticed before I could see whose viewed me but now you have to upgrade to see who has viewed your profile. And also I’ve put that I would not want a user to known I’ve viewed their profile and for some reason they can tell I’ve looked at their profile. Sorry to say most men on here are after one thing and that’s men in the over 40s bracket and then the younger ones want something serious. Going downhill this app is. I have deleted and rejoined so many times thinking it’ll be better but nope still the same. Not impressed with how they have done this app at all.Version: 13.00

Horrible appI got removed for absolutely no reason. I barely even go on the damn thing, I was trying to report someone for sex trafficking and right after I sent in the report my account was removed. wouldn’t recommend.Version: 15.41

Worst site everWorst site ever.Version: 15.50

Prevalent scams.1st 24 hours I had at least 4 scammers trying to take my off site to get my credit card info. Be very cautious. If you use this app. Or better yet don’t. It is also impossible to get ahold of them to get a refund. I asked after 24 hours and all I got was an e-mail confirmation that it was sent received and a code to say it was getting looked at. Legally they have to refund but it didn’t happen. So stay far far away from this app. Don’t waste your time or money..Version: 13.00

FailJust downloaded the app and nothing is working.Version: 1.33

Some areas to improveChatting is difficult - the app doesn’t refresh unless you move from one page to another so you don’t always see new chats unless you constantly refresh. Lots of random questions in the profiles - who cares if someone has a car? The descriptions of personality types have no meaning. People are constantly commenting that their details like age are incorrect and yet it cannot be updated. Cannot block someone unless you chat with them first. If you see the profile of someone you know - and do not want to interact with, you shouldn’t have to talk to them in order to block them. This seem like a basic self-protection requirement..Version: 9.70

Avoid itThe app is clunky and buggy with random crashes. You always appear online unless you log out completely so just closing the app work change your online status. POF will ban you for no apparent reason. The app seems to attract women who are impatient and/or jaded and rather than just ignoring your message they will block you which will result in your email/profile being banned for life from the app/website. This attitude towards blocking users is part of the POF culture so don't be surprised! The messenger isn't an instant messenger which is completely ridiculous in nearly 2019! The messenger is so archaic and reloads the page after every message you send and returns you the message list which means having a conversation with flow is extremely difficult. The class of women is low with many women expressing racist preferences..Version: 9.51

Too much porn advertisingOver the last few months the app has unfortunately become a lightning rod for porn advertising. While I find the functionality of the app itself to be quite good it’s just unfortunately become routine to block the endless messages stating “hi there :-)” knowing they are bots. While POF does a good job deleting those fake profiles it would be good if more work were done to prevent them to begin with. For instance bot tests for sending messages or even creating profiles are pretty commonplace..Version: 9.90

Used to be really good, not anymore......Used to be really good & I have met a few people off here in the past, then they decided to leave those annoying little red bubbles on the app that tells you “how many people have looked at your profile - if you pay a subscription you can see them all & the notification goes away!!” So that leads you to disable push notifications to get rid of annoying red bubble, which then leads them to halve the amount of “people interested in you” for some reason (just goes to show how many fake profiles there are on there), and screw up your matches - for example, my preferences are to meet someone no more than 10 miles away and I have a preference for athletic figures, now I’m constantly shown ladies that describe themselves as BBW & live over 200 miles away! Way to go POF, never again..Version: 13.50

Too many fake accountsThe amount of notifications you get for the “meet me” section is a joke.... 99.9% of the notifications get removed because they where a fake account..... messages are also fake with the standard message being “hey there :)” or “hi babe”.... female accounts have next to no details to what they want.... need to have some way to show legitimacy of accounts!. My honest opinion, only pay for an subscription if you want to see if they have read your message or when they where last online.... any other reason is pointless.....specially since the meet me section is just for the fake accounts to use.... *** if you are a guy and thinking of paying for a subscription because you keep getting notifications that girls are saying meet me to your picture DONT! They are fake accounts used to lure you in!*** Don’t know what it’s like for a female user but as a male user plenty of fish is a complete waste of time.... 0/5 stars!.Version: 10.10

AwfulPof has been down for the past 2 months. With the website deleting your account, even if you’ve made purchases in the accounts. Then it takes weeks to get a new account made as the page doesn’t load. Pof needs to sort this out. Once the page was up and running before all the faults it was fine, I met many people from the site, even had a relationship. People have met from the site and have got married and had children. The site let’s you see who has viewed you, you don’t have to talk to people you don’t like as you can block them. But Pof should only let pictures of the person on the account, I’ve had many unwanted pictures sent to me. Once the site is fixed it might be better. For the time being don’t download it, as you won’t be able to..Version: 9.90

Plenty of fakesI used to use this profile years ago and it was okay. Plenty of people to message for free, searches yielded a large number of women, thorough profiles etc. Now, this time, my phone blows up every time I open the app, but not from legitimate women interested in my profile, or real messages, but fake profiles liking me, sending repeated messages “hey there :)” and what’s even worse is there will be multiple fake profiles with the SAME PHOTO messaging or liking me!!! I really think plenty of fish has fallen off the dating list in my opinion. I also use ok Cupid, and this is NEVER a problem. My suggestion is to go with the odds and the masses and just use tinder for its sheer popularity, or ok Cupid for its effective filtering of the click bait that POF has been infested with. Save your money and go with the free version, believe me...I even regret the three months I paid for already UPDATE: now they have a feature that doesn’t let you message, I’d say 90% of members, with a prompt that comes up and says “this member prefers to only be messaged by upgraded users” plenty of fish is officially not free anymore. Total waste of time. You read someone’s profile, like them, MATCH with them, get your hopes up, then this comes up and ruins it. Nice job POF..Version: 11.40

Scammer Central.POF, by far, has the most FAKE PROFILES I’ve ever seen on a dating site. I’ve had to report 15 profiles in the last three days and I don’t think POF is doing anything about it. They reach out to you and send you weblinks to porn, or sometimes straight up prostitution. I made the mistake of paying for the service but will certainly it be renewing. Buyer beware. You could do better with another service. Update: Seriously, steer clear of this app. I just came back to update my review after a month of usage. I’ve had to report 22 profiles in the last 3 weeks for being fake, scammers, prostitutes looking for business, etc. I have sent several emails to POF about this, asking if they take down fake profiles and all I get back in a generic form email thanking me for reporting the issue. I checked some of the profiles I’ve reported over two weeks ago and they are still there. Also, it’s such a sausage fest, as a lot of these sites are apparently, that people don’t read your messages. I’ve spoken to women on the site that day they get so many messages, that messages they receive get buried. Even after you pay the monthly subscription, which I did, they tell you to pay more money on top of that to get your messages put to the top of the line. All in all, don’t waste your time or money on this. There’s much better ones out there..Version: 10.50

Bottom Barrel App (Most 4*+ reviews are fake. AVOID)Usually I would give a comprehensive review. But this app is just plain bad. Terrible UI, terrible mechanics. Cluttered. Terrible stacks(swipes) in far away places. Even if you use the refine feature it doesn’t work unless you use the meet me section which shows you people all over the entire country. It’s like the whole app is designed as an advertisement. You know when you get random pop ups in free games. It’s like that but with profiles. You get a notification for everything. Random people using live they don’t even have to be in your country. Random likes, random meet me’s from profiles that didn’t like or swipe on you. Most of which are fake or unresponsive. How is this app this bad. I have no idea how this app is average 4*. Shambles. Utter shambles. Can’t even delete my account, because the delete account button conveniently doesn’t work... tried in safari and in google chrome. They offer hide/deactivate account which also doesn’t work. Just wow. It’s beyond me..Version: 14.20

It’s okI have met a few people off here so it is good in that sense as that’s the reason you go on! But the app is so slow and intermittent as to when it works sometimes when I’m typing a message I can’t even see what I’m writing because it’s stops showing up also tells me I have no internet connection when I do and I know it’s not my speed that’s a problem because everything else works. Also one major thing is the fake profiles surely there’s something more POF can do to verify accounts more sufficiently. All in all I’d say the app is worth using you can always exchange numbers with people to avoid the app issues just make sure there not fakes first!.Version: 9.00
