It used to be a really good site but it is getting progressively worse and worse.Don't get me wrong, I know that dating for men (on those sites) usually such but the problem with Pof is (as it seems) their matching algorithms changed and now they suck. numbers from Hitwise, the top niche dating sites are steadily gaining market share while their big mainstream counterparts stagnate.In March 2008, the top 5 overall sites held 7% less market share than they did one year ago (Plentyoffish and Singlesnet were the only sites to buck this trend individually).I wasn't blocked however I did block several men so if that was the reason for booting me off than Markus is pathetic. He's always sending unwanted emails to my inbox and it seems if I ignore and not act on them than he considers that a violation.I believe most of the men on the site are losers anyway and not worth it.Although I gave negative feedback I had done absolutely nothing wrong.POF seems to have more than its fair share of people with issues and problems...bunny boilers, psychos, neurotics, social mistfits, narcissists etc Maybe I was just unlucky but I won't be using that site again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
I returned it giving them a poor 2 stars politely stating that they are too commercialised now but it was unlikely they would act on my comments because POF is all about making money...30 minutes later my account was deleted!
I believe I have the right to my own privacy and not be bombarded with emails from the dating site owner. Markus your site is not great...it's lame and it's getting a poor reputation.. It's extremely rampant and the site does nothing about it. Just looking through the site makes you want to go in for a shot.
I think paying for one of the other sites such as match will be an improvement over POFOn another occasion I purchased a membership and then felt I made a mistake and asked for a refund within 24 hours. I filled out a profile, with a well thought out bio, also including I work, have my own home and car, pay my own bills etc, nice photos.
The particular interests mainly relate to sexual preferences, races, and religions.
Top sites include Adam4Adam, Manhunt, for homosexuals; Black People Meet, Black Singles, Black Christian People Meet for African Americans; and Christian Mingle, JDate, and Christian Café for the religiously-oriented.
I had not been on the site for a couple of weeks and when I went on to use my account again I was bumped off.
