10 Free Features on POF (Plenty of Fish)

Each dating site has some free features and for some, you have to pay. In my today’s post I’m gonna share with you what can you get for free on POF.

First of all, I would like to note, that on POF you don’t have to pass 500 questions first and only after that find out that you have to pay, as on many other online dating sites.

Right after you created and confirmed your account you can start using it and fill out tests later (like chemistry test and some other).

So, here is the list of free options on POF:

1. Registration

2. You can read messages. And it is unlimited. And I think this is the most important option on any dating site

3. You can see if your message was read. Actually, it is not a free feature but still, you can do it. And here is how!! (Plenty Of Fish – Plenty Of Bugs)

4. You can see who viewed your profile

5. You can see who wants to meet you. Also, it is not a free thing but you can do it (Plenty Of Fish – Plenty Of Bugs)

6. And view users too. Even those who has Updated profile (well, you can’t see updated profile, but basic, like description, pics,… you can)

7. You can see who favorited you

8. Add people in favorite too

9. You can use search and even advanced search option

10. You can post your pics

Maybe, this list is not that long, but it is pretty much enough to use the dating site for free (and even some premium features for free too). As most of the other, popular dating sites won’t let you use even the basic features if you didn’t pay for that.

Also, can’t mention that POF has a huge number of users, like about 100 000 000 registered users. And personally, it is my favorite dating site.

See you soon,



$238USD Spent Annually by An Online Dater

Some dating sites like OkCupid and PlentyOfFish are generally free to use with the option to purchase a premium membership, which unlocks reserved features like unlimited message storage and the ability to see who “likes” you back.

However, other sites like eHarmony and Match require a paid membership to use. Out of the 41 million Americans who have tried online dating, a large number have stuck to it and tested their faith by spending an average of $238 a year for memberships and other perks. This isn’t necessarily a large sum for people who might spend a lot more just for a night out.

Creepy Girl from POF

Messaged by a girl on POF. Let’s call her “Ashley.” One of those conversations that immediately took off and we were talking for at least 4 hours straight. We decide to go get dinner. She was even better in person. Beautiful, witty, laughed at my stupid jokes and the whole bit. We exchange goodbyes and that was the end of our evening. We’re texting until about midnight when she says “You’re going to hate me. We should just be friends.” So I’m like ok whatever. She calls me the next day and apologizes so I give her a second chance. At the end of this date, we start making out like we’re in middle school and she stops us before we get too far and says she’s not ready for that yet. Ok cool. I can respect that. So I get home and she texts me saying that I was just going to use her had we had sex and calling me a pig. Um….ok. Next day I get a text from Ashley’s phone asking if I knew where she was and I was the last person to talk to her. Her “friend” went to her house, where Ashley had apparently left her phone and her car and the front door was wide open. So I told this mystery person to call the cops. When she refused I said that I would and lo & behold, Ashley shows up. “I had just gone for a walk. Didn’t know you cared about me so much lol.” Yeah ok, I’m done with this situation. The next day I go to work. I usually leave my phone in my truck until lunch, so when I went out for lunch at noon, I had 115 new texts and 48 missed calls. Yup that’s it. I’m done. So I block her number and that’s it. Wrong again. She knew where I worked and the rough time I got off work, which is almost an hour and a half from where she lived. Tried following me home. I took a roundabout way of getting home and ran a few red lights but managed to lose her. It’s been almost a year and I haven’t heard from her since.

Be careful Guys!! 😉

Warm Welcome Message

Any Dating Site is the endless source of fun, stupid, hilarious, creepy,……messages and stories. So here is another short one.

Recently got a message from a guy on a Dating Site ….. ‘Hi. How are you? You look like my grandma’.

Hahaha. Seriously?

Not sure how to take it. As a compliment or as an insult. LOL

Online Dating Sites Review – Personal Experience

I’ve been registered not on many but various online dating sites in the last 3 years. And here is my opinion. (For the reference and comparison to say I had full info and the same profile pictures on all of them)

Elite Singles

I had paid account. In 3 days I got ZERO messages.

I searched the site and didn’t find anyone interesting.

Looks like this place doesn’t have users at all, even tho they claim that they have +45.000 new users every month and every 8 mins a single find a love.

Not sure about this statistic, but facts saying the opposite.

But can’t not to mention, that I requested the payment back. And they did refund the whole amount.


Here I had paid account as well. This time for a month.

I got messages. I would say lots of them. But the web-site interface…. I just hated it. Not convenient to use at all.

They saying their community has 38.000.000 singles worldwide. Well, I assume all of them live outside of Canada because I haven’t had even one date in a month.


Had paid account too. Been with them for 3 months.

Not sure about the numbers for this web-site. But can say that the choice is good. Search filters work well as well so I was able to narrow auditory and select.

Got ton’s of messages and went many times on the dates. Not without funny and creepy stories…..But still – got experience.

The only this I don’t like about them is that I deleted my profile permanently more than a year ago, but still getting emails from them saying that someone messaged me, liked me,….. even tho that before the deletion I removed all my pics. Weird and annoying.


Had free account. They provide enough free features, such as read messages and see who vied you, so don’t see a need to pay.

The general impression: OkCupid – OkStupid.

The quality of users literally poor. The worst online dating site I would say.


Free account. Also, can use some paid features for free. (How? Read here: Plenty Of Fish – Plenty Of Bugs).

Been here on and off for the last 6 months.

Love the interface and logic, even tho would improve some.

Millions of users of different quality. Thousands of emails.

Went on the dates. Met some good some bad guys. Lots of liars (but, common, you never know).

Still, think it is the best online dating site.


Short note for those who knows me personally: Calm down, I’m not gonna sell myself. Just curious to see what is all about 🙂

Well, I guess according to the name you already got what is it. But be honest just registered, haven’t uploaded the pic yet. So will let you know in the near future what is it.



Plenty Of Fish – Plenty Of Bugs

POF is free Online Dating Site, but some features to use, you have to pay. BUT, it has bugs and some not free features, can be used for free. Here is how.

Wanna see who reads your messages? 

Ager to know if your messages got to read? Then follow the next steps:

  1. Install POF app on your cell phone. No worries it is free
  2. Tap on ‘Inbox’ icon
  3. Scroll once to left. See ‘Sent Messages’ list? Here you can see all messages with Read/Unread status. For FREE


 Wanna know who wants to meet you?


  1. Install POF app on your cell phone if you haven’t done so yet
  2. Tap on ‘Meet Me’ icon
  3. Scroll once to left. Now you can check who wants to meet you. For FREE

Wanna see hidden profiles?

Are you sure he/she deleted the profile? Or just said so to you? Wanna know the truth? Here we go:

  1. First of all, you have to know the user’s nickname
  2. Now, make sure you logged out from the POF or open another browser which you usually don’t use (For me, I never use FireFox, but Google)
  3. Type the nickname in the browser and add pof
  4. Hit ‘Enter’
  5. If the user really deleted profile, then you won’t see this name with link to POF on the list of results
  6. If the user just ‘Hide’ his/her profile, then you will see it on the returned search list

NOTE: All experiments with fishing were done with Windows Phone. Not sure how it will work on other cell phones. But you can let me know in your comments 🙂

Happy Fishing!!!
