Plenty of Fish down

- Mar 27, 2014

We have just been informed that the Plenty of Fish website is down and this outage today was unexpected with no planned maintenance to our knowledge. As far as we can tell, the Plenty of Fish servers went offline within the last few hours and haven’t been down too long.

In the past couple of years we have heard about the popular dating website going down on a number of occasions, so this wouldn’t be the first time Plenty of Fish has gone down. You can see other articles reporting different issues with Plenty of Fish over the past few years on this hub page.


If you visit the website you will see the “failed to open” page in Safari and Firefox, although you may get different messages dependent on your browser.

It is worth noting that most sites offer an offline message, 404 page, or even other text when maintenance is planned. For the Plenty of Fish website to be completely blank means this could be a more serious issue.

Have you had problems accessing the Plenty of Fish website today? If the site is down for you feel free to share your location and for how long you’ve seen the outage.

We checked the official Twitter page and haven’t seen an update in the last 16 hours, which basically featured a tweet about Date Night. If you notice any messages on social channels about why Plenty of Fish is down today, then feel free to share a comment.

    • Sean

      Only joined a week ago, so can’t really comment on that.

    • POF-poof

      No, I haven’t had much success other than exchanging msgs with women, but I never met anyone in person. Then again, I don’t spend too much time on the site now. I’ve been a member since Nov 2013.

    • seductivevoice

      Nope I am in the same boat as you pawn igo weeks with no replies and imake get on when she has no one better to talk to πŸ™ lol

      • Exactly. Women will be apt to chat with a guy when they’re bored. Men need women far more than women need men! I wish I were a woman, so that I could get pretty much anything and anyone I wanted, even without having to be nice about it!

        • jess

          Im engaged to my man who I met on pof, by the sounds of it, we are very lucky to have found eachother πŸ™‚

  • Me

  • The site is down very likely because of the horrible winter blizzard the area it’s located in is experiencing. POF is based in Nova Scotia. Power probably went out

    • Homesick

      POF is in Vancouver, BC

      • seductivevoice

        But his hosting is with go daddy

        • Homesick

    • seductivevoice

      Lol don’t forget the divorce

      • Dave Nichols

        I’ll probably be dead before that happens! 😫

        • Sean

          Death could be a safer option πŸ™‚

  • Katiestadri

    The site has been down all day here in upstate NY πŸ™ Maybe they need a new host with bigger and better servers…lol

  • Jeanette

        • What’s a radom?

        • seductivevoice

  • GellerGal

  • jenny_penny666

    • Jeanette

      You’re not alone!

  • seductivevoice

    Been glitching since 12 pm last night in Niagara ontario canada

  • Wendy Grant

    its been down all day hope people dont think im ignoring them

    • Meh women ignore me all the time, I’m used to it.

      • Wendy Grant

        well i dont i have manners

        • Good for you, Funny thing is, I never, ever say anything unbecoming or aggressive to them. If anything, I tell hem how much I liked their profile and that I like their long hair, for example. Nobody’s obligated to reply, I realize that, but hey, out of, say, 20 messages I think I should expect just one reply at least, if only to tell me thanks but no thanks.

        • pofmanslut

          That’s funny because I just say, “Wow, you are so damn sexy!” and I have about a 60% reply rate. Quit respecting the sluts on there! They want to be dominated.

    • seductivevoice

      Why are you ignoring me what did I do πŸ™ lmao

      • Wendy Grant

        im not lol

        • seductivevoice

    We can choose to like or dislike but the proof is in how many people actually use this site…and there are millions. Whether you meet your soulmate or a new friend, or maybe just fill an evening it has brought alot of people together. So kudos to that! Hopefully it will be up soon, note the volume of users when it does come up. Have a great day!
