Communication is unlimited, even on a free membership.
Profiles also contact detail on your relationship history that is used behind the scenes for matchmaking.
Questions such as if your parents are still married, if you are an only child or the oldest or youngest of your siblings and the length of your longest relationship which POF believes indicates clues to your background which may make you more or less compatible with other members.
The users are active with 3.6 million of those logging on daily and over 10 million conversations occurring per day.
The site boasts that over 1 million relationships are created every year.
POF is a mix between a dating site and a matchmaker service.
You can browse freely and search for other users that match criteria that you nominate, or you can utilise POF’s matchmaking capability Ultra Match which is the Top 50 most compatible members for you.
The only thing we struggled with on the app was deactivating our account.
Up until the 5th they were all enjoyable dates, but there wasn’t enough to keep dating.
Now I’ve seen my current date 4 times and things are going very well and I hope it continues.
A cool feature of communication in POF is that you can use your phone’s mic to record a voice message and send to another user.
Usually with online dating you don’t get to hear another person’s voice until you are feeling comfortable enough with exchanging phone numbers, so this is a great way to get to know someone safely.
