But if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
An internet dating site which offers the promise of no-strings-attached "hook-ups" has been forced to tighten up its vetting procedures after it was revealed that less than 0.2% of its users were women seeking casual sex.
The Plenty of Fish website, which counts its membership at 55 million people worldwide, is to scrap its "intimate encounters" function after it became apparent that many of its female users were not what they seemed.
But the increasing use of smartphone apps had enabled a small core of men to use the site exclusively for casual "hook-ups", leading many women to complain of harassment.An estimated 2% of the site's male users "started to use POF as more of a hook-up site, mostly due to the casual nature of mobile phone use", Frind acknowledged.I've talked to a lot of people with a good sense of humour or with troubles. i couldn't say enough great things about her thanks POF I found this site through google...The funny thing is I found this site when I was searching for something about my hometown. But still there are problems and personality conflicts,one component is pritty flaigrent about it's authority and how it treats people,but POF is a foee site... There is no contract,as I see it POF is a private little dating group and it will continue to be good,aslong as they are young and single, But after they get old and hitched, POF w ill just tend to fade away as if to say that it was never even here to begin with...^J^Whatever..still cannot deny that POF has been a part of our lives because through it, we were able to meet the various personalities of men in different areas of the world which we could consider too mirrors of some part of life's scenes... i found someone who makes me happier than i've ever been. amazing what "completely free dating" will get you. For me personally though I've also found that it's interesting how MANY people I see here...For the first seven years, this worked really well.
I got the site to 10 million users without any employees and POF was generating a ton of relationships."The site had led to the birth of an estimated one million babies, Frind claimed recently.Lotsofish has the lowest Google pagerank and bad results in terms of Yandex topical citation index.We found that is poorly ‘socialized’ in respect to any social network.Too bad most of the awesome women in the forums are in Canada. I am gonna have to say, by far this is the MOST FUN, and ENTERTAINING dating site... Please name one site that does not include those things also.Makes a Texan like myself almost want to brave that frigid weather for a taste of what the counrty that gave us Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, and Phil Hartman has to offer . I like that it has the forums...which is kewl to see what people think... honestly this is the worst site I've come across so far for dating. Give it a chance here, you never know~ Is someone a loser because they hide thier identity?In an email to all users of the site, Frind said he had ordered an overhaul after finding that only 6,041 of the site's 3.3 million daily users were women looking for a one-night stand."Intimate encounters on POF can be summed up as a bunch of horny men talking to a bunch of horny men pretending to be women," said Frind.
