Three or four weeks later I came back to Bumble, Tinder, and OKCupid.
However, I decided I was going to try to take the process a little more seriously, less mindless swiping, really try to meet someone etc., so I decided to change a couple of my photos so people would REALLY know what they were getting into as far as my personal views.
I wanted to see what would happen if I basically just existed on the site and didn’t do anything to invite messages my way.
Most messages flooding my inbox, of course, just said “hey how are you” because no one is original, especially on POF.
This situation, while annoying, inspired me to conduct an experiment.
If you’re curious, I’ve talked about them in my review of paid dating site upgrades and while I think there are many things wrong with the site, the thing that really set me off about them was when I encountered a racist on their site and they did very little about it.
I purposely did not reactivate my profile on POF because I hate the site, but at one point I was showing someone on Twitter how to hide her profile and I guess as I was going through the steps of how to do it and taking screenshots, I accidentally un-hid mine.
I wasn’t aware of this for several weeks until I saw an e-mail come through about getting a message.
I left the paragraph about not wanting to date Trump supporters in there, and just added the two photos and did nothing else.
I stayed off the site unless I got an e-mail about a message, I didn’t look at anyone’s profile unless they messaged me, I avoided being active on the site in really any way unless I got a message.
I found this site through google In the case of Intimate Encounters, Frind said, "There are 3. You can change this and find out more by following this link Close.
