POF Free Online Dating has tens of millions of users worldwide, and although it isn't quite as direct as Tinder or Badoo, it's a better option for finding people with similar tastes and interests.
As with any free dating app, though, you run the chance of encountering casual users who want to dabble without committing to a paying plan.
The search function operates with your standard filter options—age, intent, ethnicity, and body type—plus the ability to search by the length of your potential match's longest relationship.
In the marital status section, it also offered a "not single/not looking" option, which seems odd for a dating app.
Strangely, in a later question, that status doesn't preclude you from having to answer a question about who you want to date.
Unfortunately, I found that even when I wasn't being terribly picky, my search would net a No Results Found response.
The search function can also be a bit laggy; most times that I tried to refine my search, it took a few extra seconds to run, whereas this function was instantaneous in my testing of most other apps.
It has successfully transitioned into the modern age, with both an i OS app and Android app, but it still has a desktop version if you prefer to go old school.That makes it one of the most immediately usable dating apps.While it's not as feature-rich and easy-to-use as our Editors' Choice, Match, it's a viable alternative for singles on a budget who are looking for love.Other asks include your income and information about your parents and siblings.After adding a brief description of yourself and a few interests, along with a photo, you can start looking for matches.Including the Will Respond profiles is a nice way to highlight members who are most likely to give you the time of day.Ok Cupid also offers users the opportunity to message for free, but doesn't make it quite as easy as POF does.When I signed in, a "who's chatting now" counter showed me that there were 136,882 conversations happening at that moment, although what qualifies as "chatting" isn't defined.Rather than ease you in one question at a time, POF hits you up with a parade of questions on a single screen, which makes the signup process a bit less user friendly compared with competing apps like Match and eharmony that have a more streamlined, if exhaustive, process.I primarily used the Android app during my testing, but I took a dip into the desktop site as well.As mentioned, POF is here to get you talking to folks.
