    any recommendations? I’m not sure I’ll necessarily find the love of my life but I’ve heard a lot of my friends meet new people on there in the area. Just curious what kind of advice you all would give..just a newb looking for advice

    Just go into it knowing what kind of person you’re looking for but don’t completely deny a friendship with someone even if it doesn’t seem likely they’ll be the best match.

    You’ll see a lot of mainstream profiles so stand out and describe yourself a little differently. Talk about stuff you like to do specifically instead of “I like to hang out with friends” you’ll stand out and hopefully you’ll find someone who does the same.

    In general there’s a ton of people on POF so keep that in mind. Some ppl start a profile, because it’s free and just never come back so try to filter things as much as you can!

    I’ve had hit or miss situations with POF. Some matches were definitely spammers and some occasions I found myself starting a conversation with someone but it would fizzle out anyway…
