POF is not the sleekest dating site on the internet, that's for sure.
It doesn't have the widest variety of dating features and functionality either.
The main website is not the most attractive dating interface you'll see, let's get that out of the way.
Nevertheless, there's no denying that it's busy – hardly surprising given that most features on the site are completely free to use, including most forms of communication (back and forth).
I only saw a small amount of search results here in the discussions, so that's a good sign, right?
They were one of the original sites to offer all of the features of a paid dating site, but for free.
Recently they were bought over by the same company that own Match (), underlining their success in the market.
It's well known in the industry that their founder actually met his wife on the site, a nice story that doesn't hurt their marketing efforts either.
There's the ability to run standard searches or go through the 'hot or not' style of searching, where you flick through member images Tinder style ().
There's also a nice ' Chemistry Test', which aims to match users based on personality (also free).
