Plentyoffish.com – site review

Plentyoffish.com is a free online dating site. They report more than 135 million visitors monthly, and offer their services worldwide. They do have more members from the US and Canada than other areas however.

PlentyOfFish does offer several interactive features. They have a community forum where singles can mingle in the virtual world. Most questions regarding their features can also be found answered here. You can also find fun mini games to play, and take personality based tests to display on your profile. You can also find instant messaging programs, detailed ratings programs, and a gift program that will allow you to send and receive virtual gifts to other members.

While Plenty of Fish does advertise itself as free, there is an upgrade option. This upgrade will list your profile as a ‘serious’ member. This is supposed to signal that you are really trying to meet someone and not just playing around. This isn’t necessary, and you will still have full access to the site without a paid membership.

The old adage ‘you get what you pay for’ absolutely applies to this dating site. Finding good matches on Plenty of Fish will take some work. The profiles aren’t heavily moderated, meaning many will slip through that aren’t quite appropriate. You will find people looking for sex only, discreet relationships, and online/phone only situations. While many people want this, the site doesn’t offer a great filter for you to sort out requests from users who aren’t looking for the same thing as you. While many people have found compatible matches with Plenty of Fish, but many more have complained and moved on to other sites.
