There is one of the popular online dating platforms called PlentyOfFish (POF). It is created by Markus Frind and it became business that is full-time for him since 2004. Then, in 2008, he operated the site independently until 2008 which then he started to hire the other employees in the headquarters of the company. This online dating platform is popular in Canada, Ireland, Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Brazil. This platform is available in nine languages and the company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. PlentyOfFish online dating is free but this platform offers premium services as part of their upgraded membership.
To be a member of POF, you will be required to make your profile. In the profile, you can write about yourself like your age, your interests, your personality, your education and the type of woman or man that you are looking for. You have to make sure that you make your profile interesting. Then, you will also complete your profile with your photo. You also have to make sure that you upload your best photo with your smile face.
In the website of POF, you can make extended profile. To create POF extended profile, you can follow some steps below.
- First, you have to think about your profile. If your profile is slight, short and impersonal, the other members will ignore any messages from you. It is because the members who receive messages usually will check the profile of the sender first before they decide to reply the message or not. If the profile is interesting, they will reply your message.
- Second, your profile picture is viewed more often than profile that is without picture. If there are more people see your picture, the opportunity to find your match is bigger.
- Third, you have to make sure that you make a profile description with a lot of information about yourself. The more you write in your profile, the more people will identify you and contact you.
- Fourth, if you want, you are able to hide your profile. If you want to do that, you have to click the link beside: “To hide your profile from others, click here” that is under the table menu. But, if you have hidden your profile, the following members will still be able to see your picture.
– Members who you contact after you hide your profile.
– Members who got messages in your inbox.
– Members who are available on the favorite list of yours.
– Members who have you on their favorite list.
– Members who look for your username in Username Search.
The extended profile is made by editing your profile. You can add your education status, income level and the other information that when you made it was only for matching purposes. Well, when you use this platform, make sure that you always be polite and respect to the other members. Hopefully, you can find your dream match soon. Good luck!
