Plenty of Fish.com: True to its name, POF (as users calls it) has more users than any free dating site, and the fourth most of any dating site out there.
Plenty of Fish Profile
This is a popular and frequently visited site. The sheer number of users increases your chances of finding a match and makes it a lot more fun. PlentyOfFish tells you how many are online, rarely under 500,000, and will break it down further into My Matches, My City and other categories. A word of caution: because it’s free, there may be many more lookers than daters. You can upgrade in a few different ways to a paid membership, but this is one of the best free online dating sites. There are over 40,000,000 “fish” to be caught. Like most free sites, you can purchase some additional features, such as seeing whether other users read your messages, but for the most part, you’re getting the full package free. This is great if you want free access to a large database of single people. It has a compatibility matching system that includes areas such as self-confidence, openness and family. A great starting point for people who have not tried online dating before and want to try it for free.
How it works
Plenty of Fish works by asking users to take a special POF Relationship Chemistry Predictor test, which measures self-confidence, family-orientation, self-control, social dependency and easygoingness. You’re then matched to those most compatible to you. You may search in the usual ways, but the site also offers a search by personality type. You can conduct quick searches; one click will deliver a list of age and location matches or a list of users online in your state. The service will also provide matches. Here actions speak louder than words and PlentyOfFish takes a more innovative approach than any other site. It will serve up potential matches by your clicks, not just your criteria. If you say you’re looking for a 40-plus professional with any body type, but you click on those ripped 25-year-olds, your matches will include some of both. You must answer questions in the Chemistry section. These questions assess your personality via five test: Chemistry, Needs, Psychological, Keeper, Sex. You cannot, however, save your progress as you go, which means that you must complete a test in one sitting. That makes answering the queries a massive chore as some sections contain close to 100 questions.
POF’s profiles provide lots of detailed information. You’ll find personal categories such as Birth Order, Personality Type and length of Longest Relationship, and explicitly state your purpose for being on the site (ranging from “No Commitment” to “I’m Serious and I Want to Find Someone to Marry”). POF also lets you weed out some of deal-breakers from the get-go. When filling out your profile you must clarify if you would date someone who is overweight, smokes, or has kids.
How much does it cost?
POF offers three premium plan tiers—$6.78 per month (for 12 months), $8.50 per month (for six months), $12.90 per month (for three months)–that let you read full profiles, place you first in Meet Me, upload 16 additional images, see if your messages were read or deleted, and more.
*This site lets you earn points you may spend on virtual gifts. The selection varies, but the chocolates are a good choice, when available. If you include a gift with your email, it will appear on the list in the inbox, a foolproof way to make your message stand out.*
