No More Sex-Only On ‘Plenty of Fish’
It looks like all those who trawl through the popular dating site Plenty of Fish looking to hook up just for sex are going to find it a little difficult now. It has been announced by the founder, Mark Frind, that the “Intimate Encounters” option will be removed, in order to take back the integrity of the site, and focus on its original vision – forming relationships.
The announcement of the option change, along with two others was made to POF customers via the site. Frind stated that, “When I created POF, I wanted it to be all about finding relationships with the right person. I got the site to 10 million users without any employees, people and POF was generating a ton of relationships. But around three years ago, everyone started using the website via mobile phones.”
The three major changes to the POF website are:
1. First contact cannot be sexual. “Anyone who tries to get around this rule will be deleted without warning,” says POF.
2. Users can only contact others who are not more than 14 years younger or older than themselves. There is “no reason for a 50 year old man to contact a 18 year old woman,” according to POF.
3. “Intimate Encounters” have been terminated. According to POF statistics, there are 3.3 million people who use the site every day, and of those there are only 6,000 single women looking for intimate encounters. And of those 6,000 women, many are men. “Intimate Encounters” on POF can be summed up as a bunch of horny men talking to a bunch of horny men pretending to be women,” Frind stated.
Oh dear! There are some poor guys who think they’re chatting filth to a hot chick, but that hot chick is in fact a man… P*ssed! You often hear people refer to Plenty of Fish as a website for perverts only looking for sex, because it’s free to join. Hopefully Mark Frind will be able to change that view, but people always seem to find ways around these things.
