I started using POF when I was about 17 years old in 2011/2012. Right around the time the bodybuilding MISC forum was going ham with openers and everyone was talking about POF is the best way to smash random chicks. I had a lot of success on it over the years however I can say over the last 2-3 years (for my city at least) success has drop to NEAR 0. Before I could get a few dates a week easy, even as a 18 year old kid I was getting dates with MILFs and people were way more responsive.
I feel like today almost EVERY girl on POF has clued onto the bullshit. There are many girls who have "looking for a relationship" listed who seem to disqualify you for looking like a player. This could be my own anecdotal experience, but I'm wondering. My hypothesis is everyone looking for that D has gone to tinder and bumble. POF has a few core female users left for the most part and MOST of them are looking for a relationship. And women at least to me seem to be becoming more picky about who they meet up with because they're very aware a lot of us just want to smash and dash.
Add to the fact competition is increasing, more people coming online, more awareness of taking good photos, presentation etc. leading to more competition. Unfortunately my phone is banned from tinder and Facebook keeps deleting every new account I make because tinder was consistent. But POF is dying at least in my city
Anyone have thoughts on this? Maybe I need to go make to my "seafood and welches grape" openers but honestly those kind of jokes seem a little bit overused and corny to me nowadays. Obviously better pictures are always the solution. I'm just wondering if any other GLL's have noticed this trend on POF. 2012-2014 were the glory days
edit: just after I write this I get 4 girls from pof hitting me up and wanting dates. funny. still believe its changed a lot over the years
It's just like OKC, there are going to be random bombshells on there cause they're fed up with tinder or just stumbled on it. Xen just got laid off OKC and I consider that the same type of site as POF.
Ask dc7, I'm pretty sure he still gets laid on POF. It's also location dependent, we're in Vancouver. I've been trying to use it as well and I've had 0 success so far but he has great success. On the contrary, I do very well on tinder.
Use it and if it's not efficient then don't use it. Just try it out. That's the only way you're going to know if it's good or not.
I agree man. 5ish years ago I could have some good luck with it. Currently in a university town of about 100k and there's literally about 10 potential hookups on OKC, and who knows if those are active or real profiles? POF isn't much better. I've taken both apps off my phone.
Currently using Bagel and Bumble with limited success. Haven't tried Tinder for quite some, but might fire it back up when I start night-gaming more. Then again, I think the best option is to just go to bars and parties to meet girls in person. In the summer I'll add in boating and some other outdoor activities.
POF has run it's course and is rapidly seeing the same fate as MySpace and Yahoo Personals (yea I'm showing my age lol). It's mostly boyfriend/provider hunters, trannies and escorts now with the occasional chubby but DTF girl sprinkled in. I do majority of my gaming on Tinder now.
PoF and OKC have been replaced by tinder. Only issue is tinder is now pay to win, ever since they introduced boosts my matches have gone down 80%. I have a date lined up through OKC. In my city they seem to be nerdier / shyer types. Tinder is full of thots looking for dick, but if you're not paying for it you're going to get left out.
I'm buying a boost tonight at 9pm. It's the highest traffic time for tinder and apparently increases your views. There's just so many boosters on tinder that you can't ever get seen it seems. I know a guy who pays for tinder and reckons he gets 3-4 girls a month off it (so probably more like 1). I'll be posting results. If that fails I'll try hard resetting my account. At the moment OKC and PoF are doing better than tinder, at least you can talk to anyone on the site.
goals: don't fucking know not gonna commit to anything until I actually properly, live or die commit to it.
6'4", 30 yo, 7 lays (holy shit that's low)
Achieved so far:
- Overcame crippling, diagnosed social & general anxiety.
- Improved my looks (3/10 to 9/10 according to photofeeler).
- 40+ matches a week on bumble/tinder/hinge
I've been trying to spread this idea for a while, but dating sites go in cycles:
There's an early stage when things kick ass and the early adopter guys reap the benefits (Coffee Meets Bagel right now. Get on it if it's big in your city). Then shit starts to fall apart a little bit (Tinder just entering this phase), then the userbase just drops the fuck off and it becomes useless except for the best looking guys (POF).
You need to identify which sites are big in your city. These things are location and time dependent. In my city it's Tinder/CoffeeMeetsBagel/OkC. In your city it might be totally different.
The only that really matters is the size of the userbase. If there are enough people on the platform, you can make it work for you.
Throw out any crackpot theories about increased competition in 2018, because those aren't gonna help you. The only trend you need to be aware of is that looks are becoming more and more important as time goes on. Looks has always been the most important thing (even in Ancient Sumeria), but it's become a little bit MORE important now that society is balancing out and providing reproductive benefits to women.
Thanks for everything you guys. It's time for me to move on to bigger things!
Use all the apps.
I use a combo of POF, tinder, meetme, bumble and badoo. Between all of them, I get 1-3 dates a week.
Just send mass texts when your on the shitter, or swipe right when you're add a red light, some good lays are still to be had.
Guys I don’t know if this is the right thread but I needed some advice. I’m a newbie. This chick I met on POF is driving 40 minutes to see me... I’m pretty sure that means she’s DTF. We have plans to get a drink in my neighborhood. How should I play this? She’s not too attractive tbh but as long as she shows up and isn’t hideous I mean... appreciate any help!

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
