What PlentyofFish say about themselves
My name is Markus and I created plentyoffish.com. I created this dating site because I was sick of seeing faceless corporations prey on people looking for love. In my mind finding love is not about handing over a monthly fee to some dating site that only cares about making sure you stay another month to pay them again.
Our PlentyofFish Review
PlentyofFish or Plenty of Fish is a pretty amazing free dating site not only because of the sheer size of its database of members and how actively they participate but the fact that is was created and is run by one individual. The site was launched in 2002 and boasts well over 200,000 members and has grown through members spreading the word over the net. There was 8415 people online at the time of writing this review.
Sign Up to PlentyofFish
The first impression of PlentyofFish is that is very basic in appearance and lacks the sophistication of many sites.. but it works well and best of all is totally free so who is complaining !
Signing up is simple and you are asked the usual type of questions. You can add your own headline and description, and upload a picture all from one page.. a doodle really.
Once you have registered you can view you can choose to upload more images, up to 8 or add to your profile. You can also :
View your matches,
Matches are based on your age location and the things you choose to put as your interests. the matches that show up are also based on the other users preferences.
The search features on PlentyofFish are surprisingly good. You can search by age range, area, filter users you have contacted before, last online, online now etc.
This is a great feature hardly ever found elsewhere on dating sites. You can filter what type of people you do and do not want to contact you. You can choose which countries and age ranges you want contact from and you can block whole groups of people like married ones, people just looking for friendship or other types of relationships.

All in all PlentyofFish is hard to find fault with. There are loads of members worldwide and the site is extremely active. It would be hard to join PlentyofFish and at the very least not find people to chat to. There are adverts dotted around the site but they are static and do not interfere in the slightest with your user experience. Ok it isn't pretty but it functions very well and best of all it is 100% FREE
