Plenty of Fish -PoF- Dating Site Review

Well, following the thread of online dating sites we have Pof, a website that invites you to fish for your next partner. Pof took very seriously that saying “don’t give him the fish, teach him how to fish”, that’s why they applied that saying to love and well, they won’t teach you how to get your perfect match but they will give you the fishing rod and the bait. Today it could be tuna, but… What if tomorrow the coveted salmon appears? You never know, so we invite you to get to work and see what Pof’s social sea has to offer.
