When I broke up with my ex-boyfriend, I was so sad and my friends suggested me to try Plenty of Fish. I didn’t know much about online dating but since POF is free, so I thought I’d give it a try. The sign up is very fast and you can answer most of the questions later if you’d like. I like the fact that most of the features are at no cost, such as instant messaging, smiles, compatibility matching, and forums. Back then, you even can see who has looked at our profiles at no cost. I thought that was a cool feature because that way I at least got to know who was interested in me. I’ve heard now you do need to pay a fee. I especially like their forums. It’s a great way of “meeting” people virtually. Some members organize some activities and events for people to attend, and you can really take advantage of that.
Because of POF, I did get to meet a lot of dates and make a lot of friends. And it helped me go through the difficult time back then. One thing to mention is if you do want to get serious with Plenty of Fish, you can use some of their premium features. By paying a fee, you can have your dating profile show up prominently in their search results, therefore, you will get more exposure. You can also buy credits to see the status of your sent emails (read, delted, not read, etc), you can also purchase POF gifts etc.
In addition, there are some fun stuff going on POF. They have a hot or not photo rating system, so you can rate those pictures. And what’s cool is you can also ban certain types of users from contacting you (such as blocking people from certain region or people only looking for sex), and of course you can add people to their personal favorites list.
So if you are single or you just recently broke up with someone, you may want to give Plenty of Fish a try. You have nothing to lose!
