Everyday my user profile is being deleted 2/5
Not sure what big it is but be aware
And emails to confirm password never comes
After 3 new accounts I gave up
Once Great - Now Spam 1/5
What was once a great dating app has been overrun by spammers. The worst part is they don't seem to care.
Lots of Carp 1/5
Not a bad sight just a lot of weirdos on this sight. I think people who post pictures should have to have a verified profile picture. I have so many men who are on here that are Catfishing.
App is ridiculous. 1/5
Having to pay money to message people? What a joke!
Every time I make an account it sigh me out, and when I log back in it says there is no account.
This app used to be good, Now is a joke.
A bunch catfish, and trashy’s girl who is trying to sell their nudes pictures. What a shame
Used to be good.. 1/5
Just as bad as tinder with the fake profiles. Had to turn off my notifications because I was getting so much crap.
Don’t waste money on the upgrade 1/5
I canceled my subscription and won’t be back after this one. I feel like I was misled or ripped off. At least 90% of “meetme” and views come from fake accounts. Most messages are as well. In the beginning I was reporting them but I could not keep up with them. This service has a huge problem with fake accounts and there is absolutely no value to an upgraded account.
Worst dating site yet 1/5
By 1 star should be zero
Stupidest dating site yet. Thanks for the hook up of somebody 1000 miles away. Super helpful!
Too many fakes 1/5
By auck it
There are 3 types of profiles on this site... Women who are too far in distance
Women who never want to meet
TONS of fake profiles
Come on POF, get your IT Team to get the fake profiles under control. They are taking over your dating site. Seriously considering just deleting my profile, it’s getting that bad...
Too many bots/scammers. 1/5
Almost nothing but fake profiles. At this point all I’ve been doing is endlessly reporting them and getting their accounts deleted. They need to IP ban them or device ban them or something.
I’ve had to sign up twice tonight because it keeps saying my sign in credentials are invalid. For the few minutes I have been able to get on, I’ve had to upload my pictures 3 times and it doesn’t save my search options. Worst app ever.
My account kept getting deleted and I wasn’t breaking any rules! 2/5
It’s really frustrating when you create your account. You’ve gone through all of the basics, darn near writing an entire book about yourself on there, just to go back to your account to find that you cannot log on. Why? Because it was DELETED! I created an account 3 times just to have all three of them deleted. The first one was deleted the next day after conversing with very interesting people. The last two were just automatically deleted minutes after creating them. Thank God that I went out on a whim and gave one guy my number who’d informed me that my account was gone without a trace (he’s not my boyfriend, may I add, which is why I have the second star!) I’m unsure of what keeps causing them. I followed all of the rules. But I’m going to have to decline ever using pof again and I’m not recommending it for anyone.
Better than OkCupid, Tinder, etc.; and more free features. 4/5
Plenty of Fish strikes a good balance between the more traditional paid dating apps (like Match.com, eHarmony, Chemistry, etc) and the newer dating apps (like OkCupid, Tinder, Bumble, Zoosk, etc.) that require you to pay for certain features like finding out who is interested in you, being able to message someone back, and/or having to give up your Facebook information/privacy information in exchange for using the dating app; even though these apps typically portray that it is to verify the identity of user compared to their pictures, it really is about gathering that private information in order to send you targeted marketing ads.
The reason for not giving Plenty of Fish 5 stars, is it to contains advanced paid features, if you encounter any difficulties - customer/technical support doesn’t answer and you are left looking for the answer on your own, almost all dating apps are transitioning to photo-based profiles (using swiping methods, but how much can a serious person that is dating really learn from a photo alone; and they are a large group of people that are being left out of the dating pool, because people seem not to understand that some professions still require that a person is discreet even outside of their workplace - such as military personnel, doctors, lawyers, police, politicians, public relations personnel at companies, people in certain management positions, etc.), recently there has been an uptick in fake accounts - but Plenty of Fish was proactive in letting users know that they are taking care of the issue and it has started to decrease, and some of the people on the app also makes it difficult to know how much to write about themselves.
The great thing about the app is that a lot people use it, it truly is free to use, you can send and receive messages, after exchanging a few messages you are able to send various types of media (pictures, icons, etc.), it can search by GPS for users close to you and let you know how far away they are, you can include as much or as basic information as you want in your profile, it provides multiple search options, advises of local events that you might be interested in, you can control your privacy, you can see who is online, the ‘MeetMe’ feature allows you to swipe through photos to see if you might be interested in someone - and let’s you check out their profile before you decide, it tells you who viewed your profile, lets you browse profiles anonymously, and tells you who is most likely to respond to you. Overall a great dating app
Waste of time 1/5
Decided to give this a quick download to try out. Was immediately blasted with several dozen spam accounts trying to get my phone number and personal information.
The hoops I have to jump through to delete my account are also annoying. Complete waste of time, would not recommend, 0/10
Fake profiles 1/5
Left Pof and joined Bumble instead 1/5
By Lindsay R M
1. Can’t block people unless they message you. If you do they can still see your profile. For example see a ex or a coworker that you don’t want them to see your profile no way of blocking them from seeing you.
2. No way of verifying identity if they are real or a bot.
3. Location is way off
3. Can’t change your chemistry test.
4. No way to filter things if they smoke, drink, religion ect.
I’am a female and found that Bumble is better for authentication of people and you can do all the things above except they don’t make you do a chemistry test. Also the female must contact the man after a match with in 24hrs, if they don’t respond you unpatch jn 24hrs. Sooo much better.
PLENTY of FAKE.... profiles 1/5
Frustrated with phony profiles with only 1 picture (mostly in bras n underwear) or strange names attached.
Fake profiles 3/5
And un believable amount of fake profiles makes it tough to keep this app
Fake profiles 1/5
Constantly spammed from fakes
I personally really like the app
Search is messed up. 1/5
I can only view what’s in online now I can’t search if I do it only shows a few. But if I go to the online site I see more but if I select someone it might pop up spam
I want my money back 1/5
Literally everyone that interacts with you is a bot or a scammer. Stay far away from this.
This app is a con 1/5
POF creates fake profiles. If I check my matches, immediately after I close the app, all of sudden 3-4 notices of people that want to meet me or messages sent. The problem is, they’re all fake profiles and bots.
Bugs in the system 1/5
Your app/site is so filled with prostitution and fast hump scammers, it’s almost comical. On an average day I get at least 20 meet me request, trying to direct me to other sites. I’ve complained and complained, it’s fallen on deaf ears. It’s getting worse, and I’ve had enough. Good bye POF!
Mr. Alves 1/5
By G pro light
To many fake hits from computer generated pictures and not enough real responses
This app has to be run by idiots. They seem to have no way to stop fake/bot profiles from literally infesting the site. Obviously their approval setting are wrong and the site is now overrun by fake profiles. I’ve used this app both paid and free and there is no difference. Now it’s just a joke.
All the matches I get are bots trying to get my onto their fast hump site or easy holes. Don’t pay for it, if you’re looking to waste a bunch of time, here it is.
Fake profiles 1/5
I used this app a few years ago with great success. I never saw a fake/bot profile. I’m recently single again and got back on here thinking no worries pof is awesome. MY GOD!!! The difference is night and day. Very few attractive real females and TONS AND I MEAN TONS OF FAKE PROFILES!!! POF.. what the hell happened??? Your site sadly has gone to the crapper. Sad🤦♂️
Spam spam and more spam 1/5
App is pretty terrible now. Every message I receive is a bot trying to get me to “meet or chat” on some other site. Obviously profile verification isn’t a thing anymore.
One Giant Advertisement 2/5
This whole app is basically an online advertisement for itself.
Now, I’m a business owner, so i understand the need to push promos. but i’m literally getting push notifications for things that i can’t see unless i upgrade.
the ux feels like it was written in 1995 and abandoned when you could still get netscape browser on a cd rom.
Bad Servers 1/5
Has this app been abandoned? Not only are there a ton of parasitic robots but the servers are scrap. How do I know? My connection to other apps are fine. I can hardly ever connect to this peace of crap.
Idk. It’s 2019. I downloaded the app, give it a try I said. First thing it wants right off the bat...a nickname. Come here to meet your perfect match-albeit under false pretenses of a made up name! Didn’t sign up. Trashy. I have to assume it’s the MySpace of internet dating-meaning it’s a dead site.
By Master Choda
A lot of fake profiles, most responses are a web link to a sex site. And 3 out of 4 profiles the about me section is a copy and paste from who ever is making them.
Crap ap 1/5
By 6th attempt to send
Second message I tried to send and it locked up on me. Screw that
Rate the mobile app 1/5
I’m not sure if i am rating the use of the mobile app from a user experience or the quality of the dating site from my experience.
The performance of the app is awful, terribly slow to update. The login button is the smallest button on any app i have ever seen, sometimes i have to tap it 10 times to login, its not that i have small or large fingers either. Getting notifications from users on the ‘meet me’ feature is an incredibly annoying when you cant search for them, what is the expectation here ? Do you think if you continue to annoy everyone with the notifications that they finally leave the site ? Then its not a great marketing strategy...login’ing out is 5 pages deep, this cant possibly have been developed by someone with mobile user experience science background or is the concept to deter people from loggin out ? I log out as much as possible because the app is a battery hog ...aside from that, i lov it ❤️
The dumbest dating site I’ve ever used 1/5
By Joba Fett31
I have never seen so many fake profiles in my entire life. On average I get about 20 messages a day, and I’d say 90% are fake.
There’s also issue with your account automatically getting banned if so many people block you. Well, the fake accounts will block you if you don’t respond in a certain amount of time. Probably the reason why there’s more fake accounts than real ones.
This site has a lot of nerve expecting people to pay for this level of crap quality.
Such Promise that Falls Short 2/5
There are so many fake accounts that the people that show up in my matches or on meetme are almost exclusively those sort of accounts. And when that’s not the issue, I’m getting shown people that live outside my range preference. While 10 miles might be fine, I’m getting suggestions that are in other states, well outside any sort of reasonable distance.
It’s got a lot of nice features for what it is, but it needs a serious overhaul in how they run the site as a whole, including the whole profile creation process, if the number of fake accounts that clearly are violating the ToS is anything to take into account.
So many bots and matches you with people 80 miles away 1/5
The messaging and notification system is awful. When people simply swipe right on you, you get a message about them apparently intently “wanting to meet you.” I can’t find a way to access filters like age.
Complete lie of fake profiles
Fix it 1/5
POF was fun when they had launched it now they have bots and sex ads to have you go sign up on another websites.
It’s okay everyone is far out tho in my area but it’s okay. Why I’m giving it two stars because it keeps deleting my profile. Idk y but after a few months of using it pof deletes my profile. This is the second time it happened so I’m not gonna sign up again..
Terrible experience 1/5
If you want 200 notifications and emails a day from people wanting to “meet you” then this is your app. It’s full of fake profiles and non stop notifications from them.
Account access issues 1/5
I can’t even login my about made a new one have the same issue smh
Been using this ap for awhile and out of nowhere twice now my account has been “deleted” for no reason with no warning or explanation. Worthless site in my eyes....
To many fakes 1/5
The site should be pof but it should mean plenty of fakes due to the overwhelming number of obviously fake computer generated profiles on the site. Once you weed through the dozens and dozens of fake profiles you may run across one or two real ones, and out of those you may find one that’s not a prostitute selling her services on the site. The site is definitely not worth paying for the upgrade feature. Considering profiles have to be approved I’m disappointed in the very large numbers of fake profiles. If you enjoy funny entertainment, viewing half nude internet pics. Then this site is just for you.
My review after 2 months 1/5
There is not a filtering system for my profile matches. Example: I’m a Christian and would not expect half the people who respond to me to be non-religious. Many other examples. Too many different ethnic backgrounds bombarding me with likes. As if. I one even reads, just thumbs through. Only site I’m on but very disillusioning.
This app is one of those that makes me question why you can’t rate lower than 1 star. One of the biggest pieces of 💩 𐊦’ve ever downloaded. From the terrible matchmaking to the near 70% fake profiles, nothing is redeeming about it. 𐊦 only had it for two days & 𐊦 still wish that 𐊦 could get my time back.
Waste of time and money 1/5
Out of 100 maybe 1 girl was a real person. Not even joking!
