I'm just curious if any of you guys have had success date closing with PlentyofFish. I myself as a girl have gotten number closes and asked out from guys on the site, but I get flaked on that day. It's been a month of sarging and no successful date yet. If you had success, what was your game plan and how did the date go?

I have had success girls messaging me back but number closing has become my biggest obstacle.. Ive gotten 2 # closes and that seems to be the biggest problem.. I guess I don't really know how to # close them girls well.. Ive asked for girls #'s and said I need to go but then they stop messaging me seems to be a constant..

I've found POF and really any dating site a waste of time. I found most of my success on facebook, and myspace much better then any dating site ever.

POF is the only online dating site that works. Since it's free you have a ton of girls out there and much better quality (compared to other sites). When you message a girl on there at least you know she is available, or why else would she be on there? Feel like facebook and myspace require WAY too much effort. 80% of the girls are confused as to why you are hitting them up and if any mistakes are made they have no problem ignoring you.

I have f-closed several girls on POF already this year (one of them was actually a pretty famous ex-porn star just looking for a laid back guy, she hit ME up) and I JUST came up with a better system to get a #-close within 2-3 messages, easily.

Okcupid also works.

POF in my experience has a wide range of girls when it comes to quality.

For attention. Do you have any idea how many girls that are on POF are simply on it to get attention from guys?

Only a naive girl will be confused to why a guy she doesn't know will be hitting her up on a social networking site.

I have met girls from POF, most only go as far as one date (various reasons as to why). But I never had a game plan when it comes to dating girls from POF. Making plans beyond where to go for the date is the worst thing to do really.

Personaly and honestly think 95% of people on there are a waste of time. Not a big fan of online dating but thought I'd give it a go.

Most women on there never reply, ok routines etc are good, but so should general curteous conversation.

Again, most people's Ego's are too big, think they are God's gifts. If they're so good, they wouldn't be on there looking for Prince Charming.

Can any male members who've had success with POF, please elaborate on how you go about successfully getting a lady's phone number and/or persuading to meet you in person (in terms of the wording you use).

girls have no problem ignoring you on POF or any site, maybe you're messaging the fatties though... i only message hot chicks.

well why don't you share it with us then?

and to the OP, it just sounds weird for a girl to say she was sarging

OKCupid is the best I've tried but is still vastly inferior to real life "sarging"[/quote]

I have championed POF for 6 months now but Im no longer impressed. I find too many girls are just there for their own egos, too many fake profiles, and too many flaky girls.

I just dont think its worth all of the effort. I still use it occasionally if im stuck at home and want some laughs or test a few convo techniques, but I no longer use it as a PU option, aiming for results.

That said, I have met-up with 7 girls from POF, got lots of numbers and so on. After the first few meets and disappointments with their real looks and personalities, I changed my game to get them Facebook so you can start to see what they are really like. That alone has stopped me from making many more mistakes and wasting time and effort. everyone can pull a picture or three that make them look good onto their profile, but most women have +100 photos on Facebook, this allows you to see the real them. Surprising how many gain 30lbs and age a good few years!

I spend my time now getting my real shit together, making a better lifestyle for myself and sarging when possible.

Its funny really because I have a number of good female friends now from POF, girls I hit on but having seen more pictures, not wanted. Nice girls who have actually set me up, in real life, with their friends.

Its the same with anything online; take what you want and need out of it, just dont expect anything to be as described.

+1 on the Ego bit.

I finally gave up on POF. I only joined the site because my moms friend whos 40 joined and she was talking about her dates that she went on. I went back to OKCUPID. I had success there in the past: 10 dates in 1 month but theres not many people on there from my area until now. I find that site easier to number close and flakefree.

I very rarely ask for numbers but I used to just say in my *second* email something like - this is kind of crazy just doing emails back and forth - give me your number so we can chat like normal people

BUT - there's no need for that just re-word it slightly and say "This is kind of crazy that we've done these emails yet we've not arranged to meet in real life..." and then suggest your 'date' OR "I don't know about you but I prefer to get to know someone better face to face, lets meet"

My experience is that you have to get it offline ASAP, text/chat/phone calls are really NOT needed to secure a meet/date. Suggesting meeting within 3 mails should be your goal - do NOT get strung along by timewasting girls - next them if they are uncooperative

I would say that I get a solid number of replies, prob due to me being good looking, but many girls on here are simply fakes or flakes. I advocate the rule that after about 3 or 4 messages a phone number is needed, or else the girl isn't serious anyways. So although I get a lot of replies, actual phone numbers are averaging only like 20%.

Talking to girls in person is better imo
