Reviews dating website plenty fish
—Guest lee Hit or Miss, but Nothing Serious (Sadly)I have just returned from deployment and have been talking to a girl I met on POF while overseas.Well, everything felt fine, and I was happy to meet her after talking for almost a whole year.Frind readily admits that he only works a week on this site. It's a fully functional dating service without cost.Which leads us to our most important point: POF latched onto one, simple idea: create a totally free online dating site. Don't confuse this with other sites that say they are "free." Sure, they are free. may offer a free version, but it's just an inducement to sign up for the pay version.I have found that most women are only looking for a rich, perfect guy.Very few average women would even give me a chance!And with free registration and messaging, it's cost-effective and easy to use.
But we think it's also because the profile-writing requirements are so low. For our critque on a male POF profile, check this out!
You can create a profile for free, which will allow you to use the search function, create a profile, participate in the forums, and email members.
A premium membership, which costs between .95 a month (if you're paying for one year in advance) and .80 per month (if you're paying for three months at a time), is intended to allow your profile and messages to stand out to other members with a special gold star designation. But in those two weeks I was contacted by a guy who lived pretty close to me, and we hit it off. I feel that dating sites are like the new singles bar of the turn of the century, and most people are very visual and there needs to be communication with everyone on the same page.
You get some enhancements: featured on "Meet Me" up on the top of the page when you meet search criteria, the ability to use themes in your profile; send free gifts in messages; see if your ads were read or deleted, and post up to 16 pictures (which we highly suggest you do not, lest you look some some narcissistic crazy person).
Things to consider: Some upgrade claims are dubious: "Access to the best looking local dates who reply to messages." Really? In short, though it is cheap, the upgrade isn't worth it.
