If you’ve been looking for love online, you have probably come across Plenty of Fish.
One of the downsides of using the POF dating services is that you have to pay a monthly membership.
Whereas on paid dating sites the use of credit card authentication helps to weed out the less serious daters, and also prevents some (but not all) of the scammers slipping through. Their scam filters are also very good, and when combined with a little common sense, there is no reason at all why you can’t find you soul mate on a free site like Plenty of Fish.
Founded in 2003 by Markus Frind from Canada, Plenty of Fish (POF) has rapidly grown to become the largest dating site in the world.

Yes, the percentage of members on free sites looking for casual encounters is a lot higher, but it’s still within the boundaries of reasonable.
