Dating Email

When you use your POF login and reach your inbox you will notice something new. After years of a confusing mail system it seems as if Plenty Of Fish finally got the hint that their mail system was confusing and overall was not very up to date. The old system after delivery of an email response would then hide the user you emailed. So you would have to toggle to page 2 and then back to page 1 to reread the email sent. Not to mention the email would not be threaded, meaning you had to go back to a different screen to see the conversation between you and the person you were writing to. POF woke up and realized this was not very good and recently made some adjustment to their dating email system.

Now when you go to your Plenty Of Fish sign in you will see that once you check your mail that messages are threaded, much like a chat conversation. Other dating sites like Match have had this style of system in place for years, it just took POF some time to catch up with everyone else. This is a great enhancement for anyone who uses the site and it will make things easier and faster when conversing with other dating singles. It is now much more simple to view previous conversations with matches. The old system was a bit like primitive texting methods where emails would display individually. Now with threaded views you never forget what you were previously talking about.

Making The Best Of Your Dating Email

Communication has been the staple of humanity ever since the beginning of time. With a few simple grunts back in stone age time people were able to communicate a lot. Dating email is not different other than we no longer grunt. Communication has become a very complex process in which we develop complex relationships. Your dating email can make or break a potential relationship. As complex as language has become, the ease of reading someone wrong has also increased. There are a few simple steps to ensure you make the best of your dating email.

1. Be Direct In Your Email

Always be direct as possible. Your thoughts and ideas are completely different than someone else. Do not expect to say something cryptic and expect the other person to know what you are thinking. You are looking for a lover and not a psychic. While you may know what you are trying to say in your POF email, the receiving party may not. Take the guessing game out of the equation.

2. Don’t Go Too Fast

Pouring your heart out in a first email may be tempting. Especially if you come across a profile that you think you may relate with. Do not write a 10 page email containing your entire life. Leave a bit to the imagination and let these things be discovered in a future conversation. It will give you something to talk about at a later date and at a time when you know each other better. Not to mention you may be setting yourself up for disappointment. The person you are trying to email may be replying through the mobile app for example. Maybe they do not with to read and type a reply that equals a full article of information due to their mobile device. Especially during an initial conversation.

3. Be Yourself

Nothing works better than being yourself. On the internet where a lot of things are a bit anonymous people tend to embellish the truth at times. Always be yourself. The person you are communicating with may end up to be someone heavily involved with you ad your life. They may find out the real you and it may or may not be someone they like. So always be yourself when conversing in a dating email.

4. Do Not Take Too Long To Reply

A huge mistake is making someone feel as if they are not appreciated. If you receive an email and do not reply  for a really long time odds are you may not get a second chance. Sometimes online dating moves pretty fast and you can lose your opportunity to someone else by waiting a long time to reply. Things happen in life and we all get busy, but if someone is really worth your time then take the time to hammer out a quick email to them.


With dating email from Plenty Of Fish you have all the resources necessary to engage in a great conversation and a potential relationship. Make the best of your communication. Your communication in real life and through email is going to be one of the most important things you can do to nurture a relationship. Do your best in being attentive towards a dating prospect.
