    I'm just starting with POF and its going ok. Been chatting to a woman for a month now, met once, really good. I'm naturally someone who gets a bit intense a bit quickly, so its been really good to read posts from women on here, saying how important it is to take things slowly. This is clearly my new friends' preference, so reading this thread has helped me.

    Thanks, lovely people.

    i done pof not long back, didnt last long for me, I come across very little in common, its completey rammed full of fake tans, unusual looking plastic surgeried females with fake eyebrows the half the width of the M25 and doing that god awful selfie pouting thing with a stupid add on picture of some sort of yellow/orange flower arrangement or butterflies round their head, or pics of people dolled up that I was convinced were blokes, cant help saying I saw some horror stories in pictures, and the intro's and the level of grammer, well, just bizarre, and what pof thought was a match for moi on that particular page, fookin ell,

    when I deleted my profile after two weeks, I thought I was going to be scarred for life ha. the modern magazine fashion looks men and women are adopting are proper scary. some of em dont even look human, they look like a 3 dimensional computorised idea of what a human looks like, well to me anyway. ah yes thats it, been trying to remembe rit form eons ago, who remembers max headroom lol.

    Had lots of dates via POF. Mostly interesting genuine women - perhaps I'm just a good picker! Or just lucky. Met my GF initially via POF but only had one date. Then met by chance and been together 9 months. She is a wonderful human being which proves that POF does have some decent humans there. Like everything else, it's a case of sorting out who's decent and who's a loon.

    Yes I am 100% in favour of POF. Many of the ladies on there (at my age) are far too open and give away far too much detail about themselves but they are so genuine and honest its actually worrying.

    Then again I am bombarded by Russian women half my age looking for a mug. I am sure there are Russian (etc) men preying vunerable women in the same way.

    A guy in work has just met a woman from a dating site, just gone down to Devon this weekend to meet her parents, she has been married 5 times already and he reckons she will move in with him soon.

    People on dating sites do not feel the need to share information about themselves that they feel would put people off. That's understandable but it does make you realise how little you actually know about them and how much they could potentially be hiding.

  16. #424
    I guess that's true about anyone you meet, wherever and however?
    I suppose its easier maybe to buy into someone's (possibly false) portrayal of themselves online?

    Not all hidden information is hidden to lie or cheat .. sometimes its easier to get to know someone first before you spill your spleen to them.. lets face it... you dont get older without having some history and perhaps even making mistakes..

    I agree but having multiple convictions for domestic violence, having served a sentence for credit card fraud and having CCJs for debt? A massive gambling problem and a paternity charge for a daughter he did not acknowledge?


    This is the 'nice guy' my stepdaughter brought home and spent Christmas and the new year with us last year before "borrowing" 400 off her and disappearing.

    Ouch! That's awful.. do you think dating sites should vet people? Would it even be possible?

    That is obviously the bad end of the scale .. I usually google someone once I find out their real name.. or even google their email address, or nickname.. amazing what you can find out..

    Thats a tough lesson for your stepdaughter to learn...

    Its wise to exercise caution. I don't see the rush to jump straight into anything.

    I know a really nice lady, good fun and genuine but not relationship material (for me) who at age 60 has buried three husbands. All down to cancer but she had them all well insured and she is now minted.

    life is a funny thing, but I have no desire to become number four

    People do though, its tragic really but people are so keen to re-instate what they had before. They want to re-establish their status/security/ position.

    As a sixty year old man, if I go on POF I would be inundated with lovely but very vunerable, ladies pouring out their hearts to me
