Offering money for sex..."friends with benifits" I believe the words were. I even had a woman say if you want to do that holds do it yourself...liked to horse back ride. Not to mention africa ladies and "if you are a serious man you get on a plane and fly to see me" LOL ARE YOU SERIOUS? The site itself is functional, but the women seem to be pretty bitter about the whole online dating scene.You might think I'm not that good looking or little to offer. AND THE FEW GREAT LOOKING WOMAN GET ON ONE DAY THEN VANISH NEVER TO RESPOND TO YOUR AD OR YOUR MSG. My complaint, however is this: I received notice "congratulating" me on my 3-month prepaid membership renewal.The women say they are looking for guys with no baggage , but they them selves have all kinds of baggage , old relationships or flames that they really cant get over with , as an older man looking for a lady my age very hard as they have been independent and set in their ways , that they are unable to relate to things that the man relates to .In short I think most are looking for MR RITE in a playboy sugar daddy , that can wisck them around the world and treat them like crap .I have used this dating site for a number of years.In my college years, I was not as knowledgebale or serious, for that matter, about the site. It wasn't until I graduated and had the understanding of dating sites that I began to receive awesome results.
This looser makes fake accounts just to harrass me therefore he has also become a internet stalker.A number of mandatory sign up questions are also irrelevant, such as, are your parents still alive, how many chuldren did they have, were you the eldest, how much do you earn. Furthermore, I cant see where one specifies a geographical radius area for prospective matches & they want one to "upgrade" to see whose interested in you It's "fishy" alright. I don't want everyone that looks at my profile to know my income range.I think I may well look elsewhere I have always rated pof as a good dating site until now! Being a female that makes more than the average male in my area it makes it awkward ....As with any dating (FREE especially), you need to understand how to navigate the waters - so to speak.To close, I would say give this site a month, at least.
I found that the self description of weight was often understated by 50 to 80 lbs, where they stated that they had a few extra pounds yet were horribly obese. There are many good women on POF, but they seem to get lost with those who are so desperate for a man that they will say almost anything to get that first date! There is no reason that it is necessary for me to put my income range or my parents marital status or how many siblings I have is needed to complete a dating profile.
