If you want to get rid of the idiots on plenty of fish and get a date then you need to be aware of these key things relating to that dating website.
1. Be aware that it is a free dating site
Plenty of fish is the biggest and most well-known free dating site out there.
This means anyone can make an account quickly. It also means people can make multiple accounts with ease.
So you’re walking into a situation where anyone can join without any financial investment, meaning they can have any intentions are going on the website.
In my time on POF I communicated with around a dozen people who admitted either immediately or later in the conversation that they had no intention of meeting me. They were on the site for fun and to chat because they were bored, lonely or some other reason.
Basically they be using the site as a social network.
So you have to be aware that there are time wasters and scammers on the site, and a lot of this is down to being a free site.
2. Be aware of the chat trap
One of the top tips I can give you about plenty of fish is related to their dating app.
Because it is a chat app it’s very easy to treat it in the same way as you would whatsapp or Kik messenger.
This is completely the wrong approach when you are contacting people for the first time and sending a few lines as you would in a text message is a fatal strategy.
Use the desktop version of the site and write a proper email. Do not fall into the trap of using POF as a chat app.
3. Get your photos sorted on your profile
One of the secrets are plenty of fish is to have a great initial profile photo.
Because of the volume of people on the site it is usual for people to flick through the listings quite quickly. Unless you have a clear photo that shows you in a great light then you will be ignored.
You need a photo that will make people stop and click.
