– Personal Thoughts of Plenty of Fish

Well, I am one of those who are a bit shy about this type of thing, I’m strange in a way that I only message someone if they have an impressive profile, just to tell them that and only that, since I’m not flirting, I just enjoy a good and expressive profile. I’m also persnickety as all get out, so I’m very reserved while talking to someone who messages me. However, I have joined Plenty of Fish, because it is free to use and find it to also be easy to navigate and use. I have talked with a few fellows, but I am an ‘entertain my mind, kind of gal’ and even though it has been interesting to talk with others, it seems that many users may just be out on the prowl. Of course, while filling out my profile, I opted for LTR or long-term relationship. You can choose from others. For the most part POF users are friendly. You will find many hot looking photos and some interesting people to talk with and or even meet if you so choose. Personally, I only check in while finding myself bored and am also considering either hiding or taking my own POF profile down, since I have other things going on here at home since the time I have joined the site.

However, I do think that as online dating site, that Plenty of Fish is a decent site that has its share of both the good and the bad as far as users go, but that is par for the course, when you are dealing with life as well as a free online dating site.

You do have to take care not to fall victim of scammers and they are on that site as well as any others. However, when you find a scammer, you simply report it and the BigFish – Markus makes sure that they are promptly removed. By the way, Markus runs this site, all by himself and does a pretty good job of it!
