You might have noticed some changes to your POF login process lately when using the web to sign in to your Plenty Of Fish account. In the past you use to be taken to your POF inbox where you could see immediately who emailed you. Not anymore. Now you are given a list of the people who “will respond”. According to the pof.com website, these are people who have used their login in the last 20 hours. The claim is this is suppose to increase your potential responses. Here is a quote from Plentyoffish:
If you want to increase your chances of receiving a response, read their profile and talk about something you have in common in your message. Users most likely to respond. Their last login was about 20 hours ago, and they are expected to be online again in the next 3 hours.
The dating site even seems to predict when they will login again based off of their typical habits.
Does this mean you are guaranteed a response? No, not at all. Some people when online dating or just on an everyday bases talk to anyone. Other daters are more selective on who they converse with. Some people take this with a grain of salt. Are they replying because they reply often, or because they are truly interested? Hard to say, only you can find out by contacting them and see how the conversation goes. If you find someone you are interested in on the list of people who reply frequently, don’t be shy. Send them a message and see what happens.
How To Show Up In This List When Other Users Sign In
If you want to appear in this list when other people login to their account, you might want to reply to your emails often. By the statement noted above, you may also want to access your account on a regular basis. This may increase your exposure to other people looking for a date. This in turn could lead to more dating opportunities. If you have a smart phone or an iPad, maybe install the app on the device to increase your time spent on POF. It is much easier to check your phone then get access to a computer in most cases. Unless you happen to work in front of one all day.
