POF : Why do men on POF call women on POF fake?

POF : Why do men on POF call women on POF fake?


My profile just got stuck as male sure there were some women who had one photo and wanted to meet on Snapchat. But I looked at most profiles of the women they seemed legit. Women that I imagine could be judged easily but anyone could be. You could get to know them then you’d know for sure. I see some good looking women who seem pretty legit there. So why do you guys say they’re fake why not just say you don’t like the women there because you assume they all sleep around are too poor for you etc…. Personally when I was on POF I noticed a lot of men there would assume that just because I was nice and gave them the time of day despite actually being a rare 24 year old.virgin. you guys judge so so wrong most of the time. Didn’t even read my profile enough to pay attention to my religious background even.. No one can really help that they are attractive or unattractive. Saying someone who is attractive on a dating website doesn’t mean they’re a prostitute or whore. Just because someone is poor doesn’t mean they’re criminal minded. I wonder why men on POF are judgmental they can’t even meet the women they want to meet because they are their worst enemy sabotaging themselves. And when that happens how do you really expect successful results?

  1. Maybe someone thought that you responding to them was too good to be true, often is the case with fake/scam accounts. Take it as a compliment 🙂

  2. I’m fairly new to this sub-reddit so perhaps I’ve just been oblivious to it, but I haven’t seen a single person refer to someone from PoF as a « whore » or « prostitute ». I understand that you’re frustrated, but there absolutely is a major problem with bots on the site. Of course not everyone is a bot, and it’s pretty easy to differentiate real accounts from the fakes. Fake accounts usually have a name that ends in a random string of alphanumeric values (e.g. ad345 or 6754). Their profiles are almost always plagued by brevity, with a single generic sentence or too like « looking for some fun » or « looking for the right guy » and it will usually say « just ask me » in the section about personal details. 4/5 times the message they send is « hey 😉 » and once you reply, they send you a link to some malicious site.

    It’s possible your profile resembles these bot accounts in some way and that may be why you’re having little luck. If the first message I received from someone is « hey 😉 », I just block them immediately. I used to try and figure out which were fakes but there are so many that it becomes to laborious and monotonous. Make sure your profile description is unique and actually has some depth to it (i.e. no one liners or generic sentences).

    It’s annoying I know, and I’m not sure why the issue hasn’t been rectified if it’s persisted for so long. It’s a frustrating issue for both guys and women alike.

  3. The fake accounts come in waves.

    Assuming there is anyone actually working at PoF, they sometimes learn the patterns of the fake profiles and purge them, then a new pattern emerges. Here are the signs I look for:

    1. Only one picture
    2. Nothing in the summary or contact info in summary
    3. Picture is distorted (squeezed or stretched)
    4. Picture is professionally taken
    5. Person looks like a model or are out of your league
    6. Pictures are too sexually suggestive
    7. Physical features don’t match profile
    8. Any text seems like it wasn’t written by someone who is living in the country you are in
    9. Repeated lines across profiles
    10. There are no selfies

    Let’s assume that they seemed to pass all of those and you have made contact, watch for these behaviors:

    11. Generic responses
    12. Incoherent responses
    13. Too quick to offer contact information
    14. They are out of town for some reason
    15. They are having a crisis of some sort
    16. Quick responses
    17. Obvious shit (want to send/receive money, they know more about you than what is in your profile)
    18. They start asking questions that relate to security questions
    19. They don’t know their own profile
    20. They only want to talk about you

    My best advice is to not use PoF at all. They don’t care enough to make it hard for fakes and frauds to proliferate.
