Meeting people on POF?

Ok well ive been doing the bar thing and its just not happening. Ive been thinking of trying POF. Any suggestions or advice on meeting people here. Just fyi im 37 no kids.

Update:

I was dating someone and she unexpectedly broke up with me. Her sister controlled her, and told her to break up with me for no reason. I then dated a psychotic older coworker and had to cut that off.

    I'm currently on POF after recently breaking up with my boyfriend. Here are my quick tips: post more than one picture of yourself and have at least one be a headshot with fairly good lighting. Personally it makes me nervous when a picture is taken from a mile away and I can't tell what the person actually looks like. Second of all, when writing your profile concentrate on what you want, what you like to do...what makes you unique. Don't feel you have to justify why you're on the site, talk about your last break up, or make negative statements...my fave "If you're a girl who is a clothes horse and into shopping give me a pass," because it makes you sound like a jerk. Third of all, when approaching women....message them once with a brief paragraph mentioning something you read in their profile. Example, "Hey, I just read that you enjoy cycling, so do I, have you ever done any races?" Message the person ONCE. If they don't message you back, their loss...don't message multiple times. When they respond, again...message back ONCE. Wait for them to reply before answering.

    I just dealt with a guy that came on very strong and sent me running for the hills. The first no-no thing he did was after we initially made contact he e-mailed me three times in a sixteen hour period. Not brief e-mails either...like two pages apiece, asking me over a dozen questions. This was information overload. When I finally responded, he had sent two lengthy e-mails again, then followed up with a "are we okay|?" e-mail because I was busy and didn't answer until the next day. Again, less than twenty-four hours had passed. He looked completely needy and desperate.

    The problem I have with POF, is when you don't pay anything then you can't expect much. I find a lot of the people on their don't tell the truth, and they are involved with others and just looking for something on the side. I also know they don't seem too much in a hurry to meet or talk on the phone. Everyone wants to text. I don't know.. it's free so try it. However, you get what you pay for.. so to speak. I would try Match first, instead of wasting my time with POF

    Criminal Records Database: https://wikimedia.im/background-checks

    Public records are named so because these are records that are meant to be obtained by public and when you say "public", it could be anyone. Public records can be used by anyone for investigations and other things like genealogy, verifications, and free background check. When you say it is public, there is no need to ask permission to the person who is named on the records or the person that you are investigating. You also do not need to ask permission from the government if you want to obtain such records by social security number. All you have to do is to visit them and follow the process of requesting the public records and then wait for the records to be ready for pick up. Once you already have the records that you need, you are now ready to perform a free background check.
