It's a free dating website - sort of - because if you want some upgraded features then you're going to have to pay and even if you don't pay, expect every other dating website to be in your face because Plenty of Fish is not shy about using your information to target you while you're there (that's the easiest way to remember it) and then sign up for a free account - it's pretty self-explanatory as to what you have to do but there is one confusing part.
They ask you towards the back end of the sign up process to answer a series of questions so you match with potential dates better but you can easily skip that part.
Not surprisingly, POF has largely remained the hotbed of shirtless bathroom selfies..spelling atrocities, and baby-mommas that we recall from our days as actual card-carrying members.
True Confession: One of The Dating Gurus joined the site after her best friend's 20 year-old daughter (should have been the tip-off) lauded the free site, and urged her to try it.
By the way, if you want some strategies for getting better with Plenty Of or any other online dating site for singles then Okay, free is good - that's a good start.
When you create your profile, you can indicate whether you're a smoker, if you like dogs or cats, if you have kids, if you want to date someone who has kids, and so on.They also don't put you through a big song and dance to get your photos or profile approved - it's pretty instantaneous - which is great when you're just dying to send that pretty redhead a message.Also, they're pretty careful to limit guys to contacting women that are no younger than 14 years their junior - which I tell you guys all the time that you shouldn't be trying to go for women with too big of an age gap anyway - because there is such a difference in life experience and where you're headed - it's nearly impossible to build a long-term romance in May-December fashion.Plenty of Fish is another of the biggest dating sites that has transitioned to mobile.POF boasts sheer numbers, claiming 60,000 new singles in their community every week.The acquisition looks squarely focused on snagging a fresh pool of digitally active singles to feed into its portfolio of digital services.
