Plenty of Fish down for scheduled maintenance

By Peter Chubb - Mar 11, 2015

There are reports coming in that the POF website is down right now, although upon further investigation, the Plenty of Fish site is actually down for scheduled maintenance today, March 11, 2015. We currently have no idea how long its status will remain like this and what they mean by scheduled maintenance.

What we do find strange is how some of these down detector websites still show POF.com is still up and running, when a quick visit to the site clearly proves otherwise.

However, a few of them are starting to catch up by saying possible service disruption, but it’s clear to see there is more than a possibility.

Plenty of Fish down

The big issue that Plenty of Fish users have is that they had no indication that there was going to be any sort of maintenance, and so a heads-up would have been nice.

Let’s give the service the benefit of the doubt though because it’s been a long time since the website went down, and whatever they are doing behind the scenes will surely help improve things for users.

How long have you noticed POF.com has been down for?

  • Pilsner Urquell

    Is this…is this thing on? It is? EARTHLINGS! Bow to me, for I am better than you. We aliens assessed your puny site for any potential form of intelligent life, but we were sorely disappointed. So we left. So yeah. That was your first alien contact…and you blew it, because you suck.

    • mrperfect

      Lol ok dude what race are you then? Fricking loop

      • Pilsner Urquell

        • mrperfect

        • Pilsner Urquell

          What species of alien? That dumber than the last question you asked, dumbass. Tell me, Einstein, how many aliens do you know of already that mankind requires segregation of their physical and chemical components?

        • mrperfect

          You really are a hillbilly buddy there are thousands of species feeble minded yank

        • Pilsner Urquell

  • jay

  • voice for men

    POF was hacked someone smart got tired of the whores lmao

    • mrperfect

      Why are you calling them whores dude what if you had a daughter if she was on pof would that make her a whore

      • Estoria

        Or a sister!

        • mrperfect

          Yes estoria or a sister I hope you get a head case and she mucks you up

  • voice for men

    Pof is a sexist site that let’s women do what they want plane and simple.
    I’ve reported many women whom I’ve met that happened to be married and POF still allows them to mislead men.

    • xskittlesloverx

      They can’t do anything about that. That’s a dumb reason to report.

    • mrperfect

      I had a girl contact me got on well right before we were gonna meet she says she’s 15 so I report her and she still trying to lure men in

      • luvLA

        That’s very disturbing

        • mrperfect

          It’s bloody filthy and for not removing her takes the biscuit

        • luvLA

          very true, that is why this site has issues

        • mrperfect

          We had a pedophile programme here in England last year I looked it up and it was the same guys from.programme same 15 year old same pictures same profile

        • mrperfect

          We had a pedophile programme here in England last year I looked it up and it was them guys from that tv programme same profile same pictures filth

      • xskittlesloverx

        That is a reason

    • Shell

      You should have seen the message I got last night from a man looking for an affair. I assure you it goes both ways.

      • mrperfect

        Hey shell

  • C:UsersJason PietkaDesktop

    Well…it’s not like they have a banner that says, “We’ve been hacked….we trying to figure out WTF happened…give us a few to work it out you interweb people.”

  • Bobby38

    Of course they will say “scheduled maintenance”. No site is going to admit they got hacked or suffered major equipment or network failure. True maintenance on a system that large would fail over to a secondary system while the primary is upgraded or repaired. By my estimate it’s been about 9 hours so far. Way too long of a down time for scheduled maintenance.

    • xskittlesloverx

      That’s true!!!

  • mork bigford

    a reason to go thru the site is cuz it acts as a buffer between you and All the crazies that want to stalk you, you dont have to givem your number. When the hot chick from the site meets you at the bar and looks more like yer old fat granny yoU can politely say goodbye at the end of the date Then block them with no explanation when you get home and not have to worry about the awkward breakup with the violent time bomb that has nothing left but venom for you after knowing you for less than a half a day. Cuz bitches be crazy

    • luvLA

      lol… I guess you just have bad luck

    • Bruce Wayne

      F’real bro!

      • tskim

        Mysogynist, you dont deserve a weenis, hope you die alone, its what you deserve.

        • Gingerjuice69

          YES! Social Justice Now!!!

  • Lookingforsomeonefrom

    Down in Australia too…

    • Guest

      Worldwide most likely

  • PofSucks

    Pof is a joke, plain and simple. It caters to men, I have used the site for months and been deleted twice. Both times without warning, a bikini photo with my face visible is reason to be deleted but a guy with his shirt off and shorts pulled down to the top of his junk is perfectly fine?
    I’ve contacted the owners many times and won’t even get replied to, the second time I was deleted confuses me all together. I was flatout told by a member that he hated me and was going to report me and get me deleted, the next day sure enough couldnt login.
    It’s nothing but a pathetic hook-up site where guys can do no wrong and women are treated poorly, you people are better off..hope the site stays down for good.

    • luvLA

      I agree with you

      • Guest

        Checked POF Wikipedia site and hasn’t been updated in two weeks which tells me there’s no updates.

    • Guest

      Plenty of Fish 2003-March 11, 2015

    • Lookingforsomeonefrom

      I don’t agree with you.. I suppose living in Australia where all we wear are bikinis is just the norm … And there are so many single men here than females… Maybe think about moving here :)

  • Pilsner Urquell

    The retardation of some of these comments has caused me to lose any interest whatsoever into what apocalyptic hellfire this culture of fat idiots is slowly and idiotically casting themselves. Why, in the name of a dying god, would I want to date and procreate to carry on this asylum of frustration and disappointment? This site’s all about dat ass for me.

    • mrperfect

      Your not a phucking minister man shut up

      • Pilsner Urquell

        I minister the consecration of booty, my gentle lamb, not the divinity of a void.

        • mrperfect

          Lol ok dude what ever you say just because your a old fat slob who gets excited about a dating website get a life and earn your phuck instead of playing games with them most are messed in head from people like you

        • Pilsner Urquell

          Ah, I see, one must ‘earn’ a woman’s affections now, of course. As if women are something to be acquired, yes? Something to be budgeted and purchased? I would say it’s the economic metaphysics of late capitalism and its reconstruction of the grammar of the body that is more to blame for women being ‘messed in the head’, as you so subtly put it. But that’s just, like, my perspective, man.

        • Susan Y.

          U cant even properly comprehend what another man is saying to you because he is logical and u are …..something else!!

        • Pilsner Urquell

          I’m sorry, I don’t speak skankanese. Don’t ever start a conversation with me using ‘u’ instead of ‘you’. Also, I don’t think you really know what ‘logic’ is, do you, my faded flower?

        • Susan Y.

          The fact that u mentioned “skankanese” only proves that u know something about it while I have never heard of that. And using “u” as texting shorthand is perfectly acceptable, but then u dont understand logic so u dont understand that, nor do u understand that Im not ur anything, much less a faded flower. I am not faded…I have teenagers still flirting with me and I still get carded when I order a drink. But hopefully u will understand to not reply to me again because I wont answer u, and that is because u are a waste of my time, because I use my time for people worth a lot more than u. U should improve urself. But I think that logic is something u will never grasp. Its so sad the world is so full of men like you. But I guess every pond has its scum.

  • xskittlesloverx

    I checked mine around 4:30pm ET and it’s still down. I’ve never seen a site down this long! I just started talking someone too!:(

  • beautyqueenM

    So is the page coming back or not

  • daveo

    The fact that they didn’t even warn users first is all the evidence we need as to whether they are doing anything improve the site.

  • guest

    Has this ever happened to Facebook? I’ve had an experience with Facebook being down for only a short time but never like Plenty of Fish. With what’s going on with Plenty of Fish, I hope this never ever happens to Facebook or else I’ll be totally lost without it!

    iTunes had an outage for a few hours today and is back online.

  • KG

    Question: If you were planning on meeting up with someone, shouldn’t you have their phone number??

    • Pa guy

      That’s my point also.

    • guest

      On a safety note: If you had met someone from the internet and looking to meet in person, it is always a good idea too meet in a public place, ie Tim Horton’s, the mall, etc.

  • Pa guy

    Yeah I know pof is free, and everyone that’s worried about missing on a date if that person really cared they won’t have a problem making a second date

  • luvLA

    What can you expect from a free site

    • J

      You from la?

      • luvLA

        yes

  • JMJ

    Down???? why is it that i can still ping the URL and IP?????

    • YoureNotAsSavvyAsYouThink

      because the url is still functioning and so is the IP…..they didnt shut down, they merely limited user access and laid a image over top of everything that says come back later. The site is not actually offline….the mere fact that you can get a “We’re Sorry…..” page to load is proof that your pings were a waste of time since the server is clearly still online even if users can’t access the site.

  • jon.g

    Just my thought which I hope it isn’t real!! Don’t be surprised if pof lost all of its data which means every single pof profile got wiped out and now pof will have to start all over again from scratch. Like I said let’s hope this all didn’t happen for real. I hope pof will be back up and running as it was before!

  • R

    Hi

  • GODISGOOD427

    PA guy, POF is free!!!

    • badwolf

      there is a paid membership, also

  • J

    No, your not. That’s the right kind of mentality to have. People sometimes don’t seem to see the bigger picture, it’s called selective brain using. lol

  • guest

    It is blowing my mind that people seem more concerned with missing out on possible dates than they are with the possible breach of credit card and other personal information. Am I missing something?

    • mrperfect

      Lol summed it up there

  • PBJ

    Stop acting like it’s some World of Warcraft disconnection. It WILL be back….I think you all can live a day without, no?

  • msright_101

    This sucks balls man I was in the middle of a great conversation an that shyt happens wtf bullshyt ass site

  • PA guy

    Wow so happy I did not sign up for a membership I was thinking about it but now no way, and are there really that many advantages to having a membership

    • Jessica Goma

      Lol😁😁😁

  • J

    Being vain is a choice, not a job requirement & no being a model does not require 1 to be vain

    • Babe9

      You need to be confident, conceited and vein in order to succed. It’s harsh competition out there ahaha but thanks

      • J

        yes….. you need to be confident and intelligent, conceited not so sure about that 1, perhaps at the agency you work for, but regardless of being a model or not 1st thing you should know the difference between vain and vein. Intelligence is key!! no matter what your trying to become in life. Kudos to ya

        • lol…

          *you’re

        • Susan Y.

          u couldve just edited the your to you’re. There was no need for an addition comment…

  • the randster

    A second friend confirms now that pof did in fact suffer a data breach where hundreds of thousands of customer details, and paying customers account details were breached today

    • guest

      how come no one here seems concerned by this??????

      • lol…

        because just one random bs person said it… there is no validity to this statement.

        • stevo

          Hopefully not

        • guest

          well, two actually, but I’d be relieved to learn that it is BS. It is alarming however.

        • the randster

          Hey dude, I’m in Vancouver. I’m hearing this info right from a guy who works for the phone company. Just saying……

        • BecauseThatProvesIt

          wow, a guy who works right “for the phone company” huh? …..because that somehow means something?????

  • phillies210

    Liberalism is a mental disorder!

  • mrperfect

    A bit vain babe thought babe was a movie of a pig haha

    • Babe9

      I’m a model so it comes the job to be vein 💁

      • mrperfect

        So let me guess blonde hair pouting every photos lol

        • Babe9

          Black hair bright blue eyes looking hella fine 👌

        • mrperfect

          Lmao okay well would of been better with black hair and brown eyes but I’ll take your word for it

        • Babe9

          Black hair and bright blue eyes more like it 😛

        • mrperfect

          Well I’m gonna have to look you up then :) where you from im England

      • Susan Y.

        Someone can be a model without being vain or conceited…those are personal choices…and dont do anything to help your career. But maybe u dont understand that…maybe u dont even understand what vanity means or what humility is. I have cousins that are so frickin gorgeous you would scream with jealousy, but they have never been vain or conceited. They are thoughtful, sensitive, charming and humble. and have hearts that make everyone adore them because their inner beauty shines even brighter than their gorgeous looks on the outside. You should think about that!!!! Or would that break ur little head like a fingernail?

  • Lexy

    That’s bad that people use this site for a piece of ass people that really would lime to find someone is used “grow up” that’s why they have whores pay for it and if you can’t afford it no good person would want you anyway.

  • stanley

    Mines been down all day

  • Babe95

    I just joined the site had over 200 messages and an hour later the site crashes. Sorry guys I’m too hot :/

    • J450NP13

      Your B( . ) ( . )Bies were probably spilling out eh?

      • Babe9

        Oh so you did see my profile! Haha

        • J450NP13

          Where are you?

        • Babe9

          Vancity

        • J450NP13

          Is that like trailerpark?

  • JungleBunnyXtreme

    So, POF, eventually quit about roughly 2:53PM today.
    It’s now 9:27PM.
    Anyone pissed off ?

    • stanley

      I’m beyond pissed cause I was talking to someone and going to meet up tonight and now we cant

      • mrperfect

        It’s ok could be worse you could live in England like me

  • Yoohooo

    Any of you just thought of going out for a change?

  • Susan Y.

    I was supposed to go out with someone today but we didnt get a chance to schedule a time. Had we been given notice ahead of time we wouldve made sure to do that, but since we werent it ruined our possibility of finally meeting today! That was very inconsiderate of POF!

    • the randster

      Well Susan, I’m sure we could turn this forum into a dating site. lol
      I’m in BC Canada, you?

      • Kim

        Awe that’s really sad to hear I bet you got all ready and everything.

      • Susan Y.

        Im in California….and Im older than I look and think and act…I just had a 16 year old boy flirt with me the other day!! I am easy going and weigh less than 100 pounds. I am a good cook and believe in old school manners and taking care of each other. I like mist fun activities that anyone does but Im not gonna go parachuting or cliff diving or the like. And I hate sports on TV! Also I wont tolerate huge egos or smoking or drugs!

  • J450NP13

    So credit card #’s is the booty.

    • the randster

      Thus no prior notice of the shutdown

      • J450NP13

        I’m sure it will be back up. They’re probably seeing what they can do to better the security….not much they can do I imagine being in Canada…full of liberals…no guns…probably have to give hackers a fair chance at hacking them.

  • me

    I believe it too. It was only a matter of time this site crashed and burned…

  • the randster

    A buddy of mine at Telus in Vancouver. A super large tel co who supply the phone/data lines into the pof head office on Hasting St. in Vancouver tells me that pof were the victims of a huge data breach today, and that millions of accounts were compromised. I believe him.

    • Mrperfect

      So when will it likely to be up and running

  • jamblingo

    My bitches need me!!!!

    • Kim

      Lol mine too

  • me

    He means user info, Identity stuff. They make you fill out a lot about yourself. That’s not a necessity for a date site in my belief…
    any free site is going to be full of problems! Users risk

  • J

    I agree… it’s very unfortunate

  • J

    Yes, because they don’t care to fix the actually problems going on they only care about the number of people who sign on. A numbers game in the online dating business world. So stupid!

  • another J

    you can do a lot more than steal pictures as a hacker, some real sick puppies out there.

  • another J

    I agree with J….the site really needs maintenance. You tell them about it and they’ve been simply ignoring most of the complaints.

  • jp

    it is also down in Canada since this morning

    • me

      any knowledge if this happening in the past ? anybody …?

  • me

    The ite sucks and should be closed permanently anyways. Its full of creeps and hackers and stalkers. Identity theifs. Its garbage

  • J

    This site has a lot of hackers, I don’t think the users are aware of this

  • jwilltech

    To me they delete your account with lies from women.

  • The truth bringer

    maybe they are fixing that ridiculous age restriction big brother scam they have? Jeez what a joke that is. Just let women pick what ages they want someone to be to message them instead of playing dictator and telling someone.

    • Susan Y.

      seriously….they keep forcing old dudes on me that are fat when I already clearly specified time and time again that the age range I am interested in is younger and that someone must be with thin or athletic build. I already sent them a message about this and they didnt correct the problem!

      • Laura Kirk Johnson

        Yes, they keep trying to allowing people from over 100 miles away to contact me. Seriously, I just have no desire to be in a long distant relation. I’m not in a position to travel and I refuse to ask someone for more than I am willing/capable of giving in return (traveling back and forth). Not to mention the fact that I am not moving for anyone. My kids are here, my mom is here and she is not getting any younger. And have they fixed it when it was reported…..NO

        • Susan Y.

          same here….

  • Daniel55645

    Yea right. Any time a website goes down, it’s never for the better. It always comes back with some new interface that looks a hell of a lot worse than the last.

  • truetoself214

    POF needs to have the courtesy to announce when it will be back up! Make time to do so, if you have time to do an update, you have time to give notice which you failed to do (POF)!

  • Chubbs 2404

    Either way I just wish they would hurry. I’ve gotten plenty of ass off this site and I’m visiting a new city here in a couple days, and would like to prospect for new ladies. Just saying

    • Susan Y.

      That makes you nothing but a predator!!!

      • harry richard

        but the women are aliens to his home town so its kind of like alien vs predator

        • Susan Y.

          That comment is creative but stupid at the same time.

        • gill

          you are not creative and stupid at the same time…however i would stuff your vagina…what ya doing?

        • Susan Y.

          u would never get within ten miles of my vagina…keep dreaming…signing off now…I have better things to do

      • Chubbs 2404

        They could say no just as well as I could. Keep that in mind. No double standard

        • harry richard

          agreed…i have also gotten a fair share of ass from this site.
          most of the women were ugly so i boosted their confidence as well as taught them a thing or do in dealing with their sexual disapointment

  • Kevin

    How much are they loosing by taking the site completely down?

  • Laura Kirk Johnson

    Lie? Scheduled maintenance would either indicate a regular maintenance
    that happens on a daily basis which it doesn’t or a maintenance which
    had been previously announced, which it was not. So yes, it makes me
    very leary. Then again I am simply tired of sites that really do not
    screen their users. You wind up with everything from rapists to people
    playing all sorts of headgames and then you wonder why no one trusts
    anyone and now a site that is down for several hours with no advanced
    warning.

    • Susan Y.

      speaking of possible rapist look at the comment that Chubbs 2404 made up above!!

      • Laura Kirk Johnson

        Yes, the sad truth is that if you’re looking for an honest relation then you really don’t stand a chance. You have to lie, or sleep together or no one is interested. Just not what I am looking for. I’m too old for all the childish games

        • Susan Y.

          I hear ya, but Im not playing games with anyone …they will have to be a real man who deserves what I have to offer or they just wont be able to hold my attention for very long at all.

      • harry richard

        chubbs is my idol

        • Susan Y.

          so u idolize possible rapist?

        • harry richard

          i model my life around potential rapists

  • Casper the badass Ghostbuster

    I joined once… but no one ever returned my responses. :(

    I faced the reality that I was looking for love in all the wrong places (or maybe more to the point that I wasn’t liked/wanted), so I decided to delete my profile, and swore never to do online dating again. I only stumbled across this article because of ‘Disqus’.

    Anyone have any success in finding “love” on POF? Just curious…

    • jjhjj

      Ur probably ugly or fat.

      • mrperfect

        You shallow nort

      • Casper the badass Ghostbuster

        Hopefully I’m not as ugly as your heart!

        And by the way, I’m considered “cute” and skinny by my female friends.

        If you’ve got nothing nice to say, then please don’t say anything. It not only hurts others, but belittles yourself in the process.

        You might want to go seek some help, like go see a psychologist or psychiatrist to deal with your inner anger/hate problem there buddy.

    • taytaytins

      I did! I dated a guy for 2 years after meeting him on there! We are still friends to this day!

    • Susan Y.

      Maybe ur pics and profile were unattractive…no reason to give up…good things are worth waiting for, and its not doing u any favors to stay off there is it??

        Thanks Susan. :)

        No, I think I’m done with POF. I actually quit back in 2013. When I saw the title of this web link in my Disqus page, I clicked the link which led me here.

        I reminisce about the day I made my profile, all eager to start communicating with someone that I might be a match for. I’m not ugly (I think I’m rather handsome). I’m well-off, financially stable, and live in a good neighborhood with a house under my belt. :)

        Yet, I think it was either my profile (not exciting enough) or maybe it was my pics. (sigh)

        Oh well, I don’t care anymore. I just do other activities to make myself happy, such as going shopping or traveling or going to the movies or playing baseball/soccer, etc.

        Cheers.

      Not at all!. Most of the guys on there do NOT read your profile. what you’re interested in your likes and dislikes as well…which are important to know PRIOR to contacting someone. but NO you get all sorts of freaks and losers messaging you and have NEVER read your profile..and if they did, they really don’t care what you want or NEED in a match….just looking to get laid or pass the weekend in someone innocent ladies pants.
      I myself and tired of being the unsuspecting woman. I deleted my profile. and THANK GOODNESS!!

    maybe they are shutting the site down and all of us that paid for the upgrade are out the money. All i know is this wasn’t announced it just happened which is weird and it is far too many hours. Seems quite sketchy to me. Hacked? who knows. Something isn’t right. There are other sights to sigh onto for the evening especially if you paid for this why not pay for another site. This could have just shut down ….

  • heartoflove123

    Sign on to a different sight. this is not worth it.

  • J450NP13

    Why would they get hacked??? The only thing of value is all the women’s private nudes.

    • J450NP13

      Which but a few are not that great…:|

    • Ste

      You pervert get a life pal

      • J450NP13

        Why am I a perv???

        Women send them with out even asking….

      • Susan Y.

        The real pervert here is Chubbs 2404…just look at his sickening comment up above! He may even be a rapist! I wish POF could identify guys like him and do something more to protect women from guys like him!!

        • fat amy

          pof told me that if i didnt stay stop it was my own fault…unfortunately i have narcolepsy….sometimes you deal with the cards you are dealt

        • Susan Y.

          What happened?? If somebody hurt you go get an attorney…Narcolepsy is not consent!

        • pen15

          yes…yes it is

        • Susan Y.

          Wow three sick fucks in a matter of a few minutes…maybe the women should quit POF!! And when the descent men get pissed off enough maybe they will finally stop living with their tales between their legs and they would start kicking the perverts’s asses, or disposing of the garbage that they are.

    • Susan Y.

      thats not true…people put their phone numbers, and locations, and work place locations, and incomes and all kinds of stuff on there!! Use ur head man!

  • beenonlinedatingwaytoolong

    scheduled maintenance no one knew about = something really got “F”ed up, they got hacked, or they are making more features only available to paid members.

  • M.smitty_80

    Well since the site is down…I’m 35, SWM in Savannah Georgia. Good job and devilish good looks! 😉 Any ladies want to get a drink tonight?

    • amaranth

      Lol if I lived there I take you up on that

    • baltimorejosesito

      I do bud..

  • njnygal44

    My question is if people have dates scheduled wouldn’t you have other means of contacting that person other than through pof emails. Shouldn’t you have at least spoken to the person on the phone to be sure they are at least the gender they claim to be. Safety first!

    • DeepHouseMuzik

      The best way to know if someone is who they say they are, is have them take a picture of them holding a piece of paper with your name on it. Total full proof.

      • JustSayin

        fool proof*

  • Lyssa

    Been out since 2 for me here in Texas. Right in the middle of planning a coffee date for today at 3 and didn’t get a chance to exchange numbers. Thanks pof

    • DeepHouseMuzik

      If the person really likes you, they will reschedule sweetie. It’s ok. :)

    • Lisa Antuna

      I met an amazing guy and was in the middle of planning the same and we didn’t get there! 😩😩 I hope they come back up soon! Would hate to lose contact :(

  • Guest

    Pof is one of thee best free-ish dating sites and hope it remains that way! As for other dating sites don’t u just hate it when u submit a message to a profile and u have to pay in order to contact that person? ? I ain’t wasting money on dating sites!! !I can’t believe that we had to pay for some of these dating sites back in the ’90s which still exists today!!

    • Susan Y.

      I hate how those other sites mislead you and make u go thru the whole sign up only to discover u cant even read a message without paying! Pisses me right off!

  • edgeofreason

    Oh well that’s tomorrows date out the window, just in the middle of sorting one and we hadn’t yet exchanged numbers .

    • Gaye Woodage

      That’s what I was just saying

  • Gaye Woodage

    It’s been down since about 7.30 Pm UK time. On its application site it says it updating uploading images, now from device or Facebook. And email services and profile edit
    would be handy to send out a blanket info mail. Imagine all those people arranging dates for tonight or tomorrow. And now can’t contact each other ….oops

    • Susan Y.

      U are so right about it being handy to send blanket emails…!! I would like to be able to say good morning to everyone all at the same time without having to type my fingers off! And its so time consuming I get constantly interrupted by my new incoming mail!

  • jon

    Its 7:15 Toronto time and pof has been down since this after noon like maybe 2 or 3ish

  • Matt

    lets hope POF aren’t getting greedy like tinder!

  • David Bunting

    Friend of mine only joined the site a few weeks ago and was thinking of coming off. Now I guess his mind is made up for him. Freeonline dating UK is much better and it is 100% free AND admin actually will get back to you if you have an issue.

    • JonPaul Crain

      That’s great if your in the UK. I wish I was after seeing some of the ladies over there

    • teak

      oh yeah that’s great if you’re IN THE UK………..pof is def the better of the “free” sites….there’s no need to pay at all.

      • David Bunting

        Ah yes, sorry to all the guys outside of the UK. As some say, POF is a free site (ish). I was on it years ago and it was ok but, the biggest problem was that Admin hardly ever sorted out any issues or even replied. The site I mentioned (yes I know, in the UK) you can get admin to get back to you within 24 hours and it is vetted and yet still totally free. Good luck to one and all, I know my mate will not bother with POF again although I accept it works for some people and at the end of the day, if it works for someone then…enjoy.

    • land of the free here, now i have to settle for craigslist women to plow? they don’t post any pics and usually ends up being a middle-aged unemployed male bank teller pretending to be a schoolgirl.

      • DeepHouseMuzik

        That’s the worst scenario Ive ever heard. Not only are you getting duped by freaks, but you think you’re talking to and pursuing school girls.

        • Susan Y.

          If he is trying to pursue school girls he deserves what he is getting, and much worse! he should count his blessings!

  • Mark J. Bigford

    North Korean hackers, obviously.

  • Lisa Stoneyberg

    why would anyone pay for POF when its free lolll

    • Ben MacKenzie

      waste of money if you ask me haha

    • JonPaul Crain

      Exactly my thoughts Lisa why would you pay for à free site 😉

    • Aaron

      It’s called getting an upgraded membership. Look it up sometime.

    • Mohamed Khashaba

      true

    • S. Sc.

      I’d pay if it guaranteed me a date with you, Lisa 😉

  • same here sez I must pay now time to find a new bang site

  • @Eric check your email from POF

  • Eric

    @Rusty Source or proof of statement?

  • They are converting everything over to a pay site.

  • Kristy Blatt

    The longer it’s down they need to refund the upgraded members money back or extend their membership that much longer. Some of us are paying members here and so we should at least have a heads up about that!

  • lorcroft

    POF just tweeted about this. They say it will be down until further notice.
    EDIT: and now it’s gone

  • Walter Monroy

    POF has been down for while today. I doubt it is due to an scheduled maintenance. romeoslist is up

  • tony wainman

    how long is this down for

    • Jojo
