I think all dating sites are corrupt mixed with a little bit of actually letting you connect with a real person. After spending over an hour of my time signing up, creating a profile, and messaging/receiving my first messages from people on POF, it's disappointing to discover I can't now log into the website via mobile phone or a desktop.
Any search for the site's logging in issues uncovers complaints on review boards going back as far as 2013 (one, on Microsoft Community/Microsoft Answers has been viewed by 161,000 people since then), which suggests they really don't care about a technology platform that clearly has problems; and care even less about users (the site can't be described as free as they're more than happy to bombard you with revenue-earning advertising banners and links to their other websites, but have so little respect for users, the password reset link they give on the website doesn't do anything). No reply to emails, matches are mostly over 100 miles away despite my profile stating 50 miles. I don’t even think there is an algorithm in this site.
The first people who ticked yes did not read my profile first, in spite of my headline strictly saying they should. Tried rewriting my bio many times, but to no avail - as in, nobody reads them anyways, let alone in full.
Every site I have come across forces you to pay to see who saw you, or locks ordinary features like messaging behind misleadingly free paywalls, or ends up removing features.
Po F's most recent example was the removal of the headline and all other than main image from the ' Meet Me' tab, and the exchange for increasingly ineffective algorithms. Administration team stinks, after ages looking I found a really nice man only to have his profile deleted by pof 'in error' with no excuse or attempt to get it back. THANKS A LOT It used to be a really good site but it is getting progressively worse and worse.
You can't get in contact unless you subscribe fake profiles don't waste your money My account that's plenty of fish has been hijacked by someone else so therefore I have lost my money plenty of fish has not give me back my money customer service doesn't seem to exist if is if it does let someone contact me on (07960) 606969 would appreciate it could not even log back in someone else's picture they are using my account all they have done is took my money After updating my profile from nonsmoking to smoking other profiles changed to accept smoking.
It also seems a lot of things were changed in my profile that I definitely didn't put in there.
POF seems to have more than its fair share of people with issues and problems...bunny boilers, psychos, neurotics, social mistfits, narcissists etc Maybe I was just unlucky but I won't be using that site again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
