Top totally dating sites
POF’s website isn’t very intuitive, which can make finding that needle in a haystack even more complicated.
Add to that a barrage of notifications every time someone so much as looks at your profile and it’s easy to see why some users get fed up and never come back.
Good messages were respectful, asked something about our profile, and displayed a sincere interest in getting to know us better.
Unfortunately, even on the best free dating site, OKCupid, we only received “good” messages 19 percent of the time.
There are also plenty of open-ended questions so you can share a little more about yourself and your interests.
POF has a reputation for casual dating, and it was obvious that many users weren’t trying too hard for meaningful connections.Profile questions were left blank and a lot of the messages we received were generic “hey’s” that made it hard to tell if we were talking to a real person or a spambot.Of the 114 messages we received, only five were from legitimate, interested users — 4 percent to OKCupid’s 12 percent.But if you’re interested in a long-term relationship, Match is worth checking out.According to a 2013 Pew Research Center study, Match had the most long-term relationships of all the dating sites surveyed.
A great matching algorithm doesn’t mean much, though, if it doesn’t translate into conversations and dates.
