AGAINST
The layout of the site is not intuitive.

This matchmaking service has a sign-up process that is incredibly deep. In addition to answering preliminary questions about your age, race and body type, you are also asked how long your longest relationship has been, your birth order, and whether building and lifestyle choices matter to you in finding a mate. You can then show some personality by writing a short description of yourself and uploading photos. It’s optional to show your real name on your profile, which is nice if you’re concerned about your privacy.

This initial approach is followed by a chemical assessment comprising more than 70 questions. The questions cover a wide spectrum of personality traits and preferences as if you consider yourself productive, if you like horror movies, if you express yourself easily, and if people see you as stubborn or not. Answer all these questions in scale, so you are not forced to simply choose ” yes ” or ” no ” if you feel that you are falling somewhere in the middle.

You are only required to complete your chemical assessment, but there are other questionnaires available to deepen your dating profile, and we recommend taking them. There is a needs assessment with about 100 questions and a psychological assessment of 30 questions, as well as a caretaker test and a sex test if you want to take them all. This really helps to improve the quality of your matches. It took 20 minutes to complete the required part of the profile configuration. Only Elite Singles took longer. Although there are a lot of factors at stake in online dating and we can not say for sure that a more accurate profile will lead to better matches, it certainly does not hurt. That’s why we gave dating services with higher detailed questionnaires in our tests. Once you have taken these questionnaires, Plenty of Fish also shows you the results so you can get information about your confidence, openness, self-control and other parts of your personality.

There is free Plenty of Fish app to check your matches and messaging them directly from your phone. In general, users are moving to largely free mobile dating apps. According to the 2016 online dating survey for Consumer Reports, a Plenty of Fish has been ranked the fourth best online dating service in overall satisfaction, coming after OkCupid, Tinder and Grindr, an app marketed for gay men. The reasons are obvious: now we do everything on our smartphones, so why shouldn’t we use them for online dating? The Plenty of Fish app is intuitive and, just like the website, allows you to access user profiles and messaging without having to pay for membership. Photo messaging is available, but this feature requires a subscription fee.

For testing, we created three fake accounts and monitored the responses we got in a 24-hour period. On Plenty of Fish, our accounts received an average of 40 matches, the second highest number of matches of any service we reviewed. On the one hand, this large volume of matches is a bit of a confidence booster and gives you numerous options. The downside of all these options is that it could lead to users being more floppy about seriously going out a game because there are so many potential fish in the sea – and Plenty of Fish says you’re a game with all of them. Other sites, such as eHarmony, just give users a number of daily matches to eliminate this problem, so you should choose the site that best suits your preferences. Of the matches our accounts got, 22 percent of them were considered ” better prospects.”You can also see how many people have seen your profile if you are curious, for free.Plenty of fish messages is a bit hard to find on the website, but overall the function works fine. In our tests, our accounts received an average of 10 messages in 24 hours with the Man Seeking Woman account that really lowered the average because it did not receive any messages. In our experience, women can be very successful on this dating site.

Once you find your special someone, you need to dig into the help section of the site to delete your account. While you can use a lot of fish successfully without paying, a monthly subscription gives you access to special features. For example, you can see extended profile information and see if the sent messages have been read or deleted. These are not essential features, but some users may find the benefits that are worth it.
