Two additional dating apps that have worked well for me in the past are Clover and Bumble. Both apps are similar to Tinder and less time consuming to use than dating sites with lengthy profiles. Sign in or sign up and post using a HubPages Network account.

Tinder vs POF: 5 Things That Really Stand Out
Unless you live in a rural area, you won't have a shortage of people to message. The site was around long before dating apps and it's still one of the largest free dating sites on the Internet. The app has a swiping feature similar to Tinder. See who viewed your profile for free.
Not all women I met on POF were flaky of course, but many were. Some girls would vanish for no reason, after agreeing on date plans. This works both ways of course. Women have stories about guys being flaky on the site too, but this occurred more on this site than any other. Almost every time a user would add me to their favorites list it was a fake profile. I would also receive scam messages too, but not often. The fake profiles are obvious to see in a basic search. No way to hide a profile.
You can block a profile, but you can't hide one, so you see the same profiles you've already looked at every time you do a search. Like POF, the site is free, however, OKC has taken away certain free features, like being able to see who viewed your profile. Members have the option to answer profile questions.
Reading the answers makes it easier to see if you have anything in common before sending a message. Unlike POF, the profile page is organized by multiple sections, starting with a self-summary. You can add ten photos to your profile, in addition to connecting your profile with Instagram to show those photos.
For some reason, the response rate on this site has always been better for me, but there were times when it was the opposite of that. Inability to see who viewed your profile. This feature was included for free for a long time, but now it's only available as an A-list upgrade. For a while it seemed like the fake profiles were less, but then it got worse. The match notifications are sent almost daily, which I thought was a little too much.
Notifications can be turned off.
The Truth About Plenty of Fish | Outside The Box
The girls on pof are the most narcissistic gold digging attention whores on the planet. Ladies please, stop being so damn shallow. If your old and busted with 3 bastard kids then you should be honored to even have an ugly guy write you. This is what social media has done to western women. You have so many thirsty pathetic beta males simping over average looking girls all day long that these womens egos are through the roof.
What a bunch of crap! I cant even believe you make money doing this. Lol, the truth hurts,. I had little luck on the site, but that depends on how you measure luck. When I was bored, I ran some stats and I messaged women over the course of 8 months. I received 36 responses.
None of which were negative. Eventually more than half just ghosted after a few exchanges or I excused myself as it was clear I was just on some back burner. I received another 6 first messages from women. Not counting spam bots. All in all from 42 women I talked to yielded 4 total unique dates. Interestingly I was blocked after sending 1 message about a dozen times… ironically by women I least expected to be blocked by.
Spread my fins and work on my tan I suppose. For transparency, here my actual profile. To those I say please move on. There are beauty pageants for that sort of thing. You just might not be as hot as you delusionaly think you are if you need POF as a beauty contest that you would probably not win in real life. There are lots of guys who will tell you anything to get your cooperation.
You know what I mean. So keep it real. Keep looking, and you just might find your current boyfriend on here. Is she going to bring a step ladder on every date so she can kiss the guy? But they are vastly outnumbered by the others. So good luck in finding her. Most of these clowns should be under a tent somewhere juggling torches while riding donkies.
The heffers are great. Stick some make up and high heels on these matures and they will be open to all kinds of expoiltation if you tell them they are beautiful. Simply use them as cum dumps and move onto the next.
I am a decent well mannered articulate man in mid 50;s so yes I can compose a well done profile. I am also a great conversationalist and can chat to anyone. I got lots of replies but met only one women and had many say the;d call me after giving out my number ,they made me wait over and over.
I started blocking them right until tonight when I deleted my profile. A few months after a crap break up, I thought I would try the dating scene again. Joined POF, first profile I saw was a picture of a friend of mine.
