In fact, the changes appear to take effect immediately.When you first login, you’re served a deceptively simple page: My profile page was the central point of interest in the beginning.You can tell which users are currently available, which ones are willing to chat and even get a list of users that have “Viewed” you.This is the most information about others I have ever seen on a dating site (admittedly, it’s been years since the last time).
Also interesting here, is that much of the interface lends itself to sending a massive number of messages (hint: use a templates message you just paste in for best results).POF also offers an upgrade for as much as .68 if you want to be highly featured.The last time I looked more than 171,000 users were online. While I have (at the time of writing) been single for close to 8 months – my core motivation for being on POF was curiosity.I went back to it several times to tweak my message.My intent was to make the message as simple as possible an include a few pictures that give others an idea of what I looked like.On this site, you don’t have to pay to message anyone, view profiles or meet.For this reason, POF tends to be a very popular site.Over the few days I was on the site I received a number of messages like “I’m curious too” or “Curiosity killed the cat”. This all reminds me of a joke a friend made some years ago about picking up women: “All you do is go up to every woman that look good and ask her to have sex with you – you bound to find one that says yes”. While on the site (or Online), your odds of others seeing you and interacting with you go up considerably.When you are online, your more likely to be featured on most of the interaction functions and contacted.After being inundated with “you should check it out” countless times by so many of my friends, I decided – “sure, ill check it out”.Plenty Of Fish (POF) is a dating site that professes to be completely free.
