I met my still now boyfriend on there and cant be any happier then i am now so thank you plenty of fish for finding my perfect guy :) Plenty of fish is not bad and offers some cool features for free whereas others make you pay. People on there seem more real then ither dating sites.Even though they view my profile after I message them they still don't reply back.
I've used POF many times over the years and I've learned many things about the site.
When I first started using the site I wasn't getting very many messages and I didn't know why. I had pictures I had an interesting bio and I even made the first impression most of the time but still no one would reply back.
I messaged a few of the same people who I messaged on my other account to see if they'd actually reply and they did.
More than half of the women replied back just because they preferred looks over personality.
While there are plenty of web-based services now available to help forge potential romantic connections, the online landscape was drastically different when Frind created Plenty Of Fish -- and not just with respect to dating.
"The web wasn't very interactive, and it was a social network before there were social networks," Frind recalled in a phone interview from Vancouver. You could talk to someone, you could communicate with other people, you could upload photos and do stuff, whereas every other site at that time was all about 'You're just reading static content that never changes."' By 2008, Frind had 15 million signups, million in revenue and doubled his workforce -- to two.There needs to be a better system in place as to what profiles can be deleted. I spend so much time making my profile just right to reflex the person that I am, and I have made connections with people that I couldn't get back. I would not recommend the POF dating site to anyone who is real and genuine.It was so upsetting and incredibly disheartening but I decided I'll dust it off and create another account. My experience with this company has been one of lies,corruption and the most impersonal user interface for meeting a friend.So a large amount of effort was spent around making sure that the service actually works and that people find someone and then leave with someone from the site. Those become our brand ambassadors, so to speak." POF maintains Vancouver as its hub, with a downtown office employing more than 70 people. Billed as the world's largest online dating site, the company said there are four million users daily, and the service is available in five languages.Frind said the site earns considerable revenue from ads and subscriptions.Canadian company Plenty Of Fish continues to reel in big numbers with the online dating site now surpassing 100 million users.
