Old fish dating site
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.As the signup progresses, you are then asked to pick a username (because of the sheer volume of users, expect to use random characters – I went with fcgx).Also, you are given a basic screening test to determine “matches” that the site purports to find.Instant messaging is supported, by way of what appears to be a flash module.I found it was serviceable, but not something many users would like.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.
What became immediately apparent after using the site for a few minutes – the intention here was for me to meet a woman by way of volume and speed.Given that, I could, in one sitting, send out more than 100 simple messages to prospective women easily; I had the feeling POF might have been designed specifically as the Twitter of dating sites.You could send a full long-form message to a user – but there was also this small, “Quick Message” box there starting at you waiting for you not to form a full sentence.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.
