Markus Frind, founder and CEO of Vancouver-based Plentyof Fish, the world’s largest Internet dating site, poses with newlywed couple Katy Severs and Mark Gomes, who met on the site five years ago.— JENELLE SCHNEIDER/PNGMarkus Frind is far too lean and thoughtful to be mistaken for a mischievous cherub, but he knows more than Cupid ever will about love potions.More than 3.5 million people log into the site every day, many of them visiting several times.Rivals such as may have more revenue, but POF’s more than 70 million registered users make it the world’s largest online dating service.i used pof for years, was thoroughly miserable enjoying myself at the fantastic pof parties, had first dates with so many people and stayed friends with several of them despite them being unable to put up with my positivity and inane jokes and compliments. Apparently some of you do not know what "100%" means.it is terrible that it is a great way for the bored, lonely, desperate and insecure to met people for free (or not to if you feel freaked out by them). It is absolutely not "100%" free as sone features require a monthly payment. From either a business or a client point of view it is technically false either [email protected] "features" are optional and totally unnecessary to send or receive email, flirt or to give your outside contact information.
As Valentine’s Day looms, Plentyof Fish founder and CEO Frind knows that the world’s desire for love, or at least a reasonable facsimile of love, is about to peak. Plentyof Fish sees spikes in new memberships after most holidays during which families get together, Frind says.“There’s pressure from family.And as for the photographs - when the hell did you last see a woman who looked like that and needed to use a free dating agency?Someone I know of examined a photo closely and was sure he could see the staple puncture holes where it had been cut out of a glossy magazine. having met the love of my life on the site- i don't know the etiquette these days No, you're wrong, because the way this works is like if you are given a car for free, but it doesn't have a CD player, therefore you go out and buy one, as well as seat covers and an air freshner... I just signed up, my profile wasn't even completed, my pics were not up and I received 12 messages? Find out the date and time someone viewed your profile. (instead of 8 for non paying members) Big whoopee on ALL of the above "features"!You went out and bought features for your free car. The site is free, but if you want extra features, that's what will cost you. It's obviously extracted directly from the site, 2 days into it now, and I have no Messages now.. They aren't necessary to contact/ meet that special someone, by any means.
