Hey there, Im 26, single and searching for a partner. Actually, I just created an account on couple o dating sites like POF, tinder and added some of the users in them. Now the thing that really hunt me down is, most of the poeple are claiming these sites are of no use and lots of users in them are not real. I mean they only do it for the promotions (just like that of cam sites). Therefore, can anyone guide me on this.

Im on most sites as well. The thing is my friends have had success and it makes me feel like i should too but I’ve been seriously striking out lately. Granted I am not the most photogenic guy but I think my personality can get me by. Anyways disregarding my own experience I believe there are a ton of fake profiles but you have to sort of decipher which ones are real and which ones aren’t. But I wouldn’t agree that they are of no use, even though so far its been no use for me haha

They’re legit. Let me rephrase, there’s many people, both men & women alike who are on those sites ready and willing to waste anyone’s time they can, they aren’t serious, even though they’ll say they’re “looking for a relationship”. Really the best way to put it is all those sites are hit or miss and I think more so the free ones which invites anyone & everyone. I would proceed with caution as far as if you’re looking for a serious relationship, I think what comes from them is far and few relationships and more B/S, drama and games. Unfortunate to put it that way and in this day and age the alternatives to meet people are far and few, but from past experience dating sites aren’t the most reliable form of matchmaking out there.
I can tell you that my B/F had concerns before we were in a relationship about what you mentioned regarding people not being real on those sites. I don’t feel I ever experienced that with men on there, but have heard that concern about the women on them.

yes it is legit, but you should get to know the person very well before trying anything. sometimes theyre on there for specific reasons and you dont want to get involved in some of the shit they do.

I’ve found good guys and bad guys on pof…. Just like walking into a bar there’s good and bad people every where
ViolaYParticipantSeptember 1, 2016 at 4:51 am #110319
Yes it is legit. Have you tried Luxy? When registering Luxy, it asks for ID and income verification to make sure the profiles are real.

I thought I would try using a paid online dating service called MATCH. Don’t!! They are a total ripoff and try to cancel your account. It’s near impossible and they try to continually charge you even after you have cancelled. Stick with the free ones. I thought that maybe I would find a more serious type of person because it was a paid site and I did meet a couple of nice people on it but I also met some nice people on POF as well. I just haven’t met the right one yet. Just don’t use MATCH.com It’s just a greedy website and doesn’t do anything any better than the free ones IMHO.

These sites are definitely a legitimate I’ve been on match.com, POF, Tinder and I’ve met people from all three. Hang in there.
tyragianaParticipantSeptember 6, 2016 at 11:26 pm #110635
these sites are legitimate sites it just that in dating sometimes you have to go through some crazy people to get to the right person. A lot of people think online dating is a sham just because they haven’t found the right one right away but even during face to face dating you encounter a lot of people who are not exactly your type before you find the right one.
AttributesParticipantSeptember 12, 2016 at 11:44 am #111039
Guys/ Girls on Tinder judge you by your looks, so I would recommend other dating sites because Tinder is just about the physical appearance
Louis RichardsParticipantSeptember 13, 2016 at 6:37 pm #111300
Is that a good app?
BrittanyloveParticipantSeptember 14, 2016 at 7:00 pm #111451
I think it’s good
samhbrum11ParticipantNovember 7, 2016 at 4:17 pm #116651
I’m on a number of dating sites/apps and have had some successes with meeting people on them. So, they are real. You just have to find the right person which sometimes takes a while so just be patient 🙂

Most of the sites are legit, Although you have to screen them out carefully. Some Women are just looking for free meals. My best luck has been on Match, the women I have met are generally Professional and well adjusted and since they are paying tend to be more serious about what they are looking for. Free sites such as POF because it is free has a lot of riff raff, although once in a while you might find a diamond on the rough.
