    POF Technical guide

    I've used POF on and off for a while so I thought I'd share some tricks I've learned. This is not about game but might come in useful if you use that site.

    Notes on searching

    You can use google to search for what the sites built in search might not cover. Note that I use keyphrases from female profiles to identify them from male ones. Below are the two searches which will find woman from a certain country. Just add your own keywords/keyphrases to the end:

    For pof:

    Find women in canada:
    Code:
    site:pof.com "year old woman" Canada
    Find women in canada who have the phrase "no strings" somewhere on their profile:
    Code:
    site:pof.com "year old woman" Canada "no strings"

    For okcupid:

    Find women in the UK:
    Code:
    site:okcupid.com "f" "United Kingdom"
    Find women in the UK who have put their gmail address on their profile (you creepy bastard!):
    Code:
    site:okcupid.com "f" "United Kingdom" "@gmail.com" | "@googlemail.com"
    - note the pipe operator (|) means "or"

    See this page for more info on writing advanced searches:
    Google Search Operators - Google Guide

    POF removed the keyword searches from the advanced search page, except they didn't because their programmers are retarded or something. All you need to do is add "&interests=sex" or whatever keyword you want to the end of the URL at the top of the browser after doing a search. e.g.

    Code:
    http://www.pof.com/advancedsearch.aspx?iama=m&sorting=0&seekinga=f&wantchildren=&MinAge=22&MaxAge=40&smoke=&country=92&drugs=&City=&miles=200&interests=&state=1360&viewtype=1&height=&drink=&heightb=999&haschildren=2&secondLanguage=&car=&Go+Fishing%21=Go+Fishing%21&interests=sex
    
    You could also modify the search radius to a custom value:

    Code:
    http://www.pof.com/advancedsearch.aspx?iama=m&sorting=0&seekinga=f&wantchildren=&MinAge=22&MaxAge=40&smoke=&country=92&drugs=&City=&miles=13&interests=&state=1360&viewtype=1&height=&drink=&heightb=999&haschildren=2&secondLanguage=&car=&Go+Fishing%21=Go+Fishing%21
    Checking for fake profiles

    Many profiles on dating sites are either fake or recycled. Fortunately it's usually quite easy to check using google image search:

    Go to Google Images and click the small camera icon in the right side of the search box then drag the image or the image url in. Alternatively if you're using google chrome you can right click on the image then go down to "Search Google for this Image". If it appears on a bunch of other sites you can probably assume it's fake. Another site you could try is https://www.tineye.com which does the same thing basically.

    Obviously you could also try searching for her username on other sites, if you find her real name somewhere you could stick that into facebook to see if anything comes up. Sites like Free People Search | PeekYou might be able to dig up some information on them too.

    Auto meetme

    If you're lazy like me and can't be bothered spending a lot of time on the site you could try this trick, first you will need to install a browser plugin called iMacros available here:

    iMacros for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...s-for-firefox/
    iMacros for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...opmnlemp?hl=en

    Usage:
    1. Log into pof
    2. Open iMacros sidebar
    3. Click the "Rec" tab in iMacros
    4. Click "Record options" button then make and set the recording mode to "Use X/Y position"
    5. Click "record" button
    6. Click "Yes" on the meetme page of pof
    7. Click "Stop" in iMacros

    Your macro is now finished all you need to do is play it on repeat, so just select it set a max value to something like 10,000 and click "Play (Loop)". Sit back grab a beer and wait while your inbox fills up, don't be surprised by a low response rate though.

    On average I tend to get between 50 and 100 messages with 10,000~15,000 clicks - yes it's really that low on avg! I recommend running it on Friday and Saturday between 4:00pm and 11:00pm for maximum results.

    Happy trolling!

    Re: POF Technical guide

    Yeah most of them are going to be fat or ugly but for every 50 messages there may be 1 or 2 decent ones that are date worthy. I should probably note that you should probably not run it every day otherwise they will get pissed and complain to the mods -- had plenty of "wtf stop clicking my profile!" messages in the past lol

    I'm writing a chrome extension at the moment that will add buttons next to profiles in the POF search results that will send canned openers with 1 click

    Re: POF Technical guide

    This is hilarious - sorry, not trying to poke fun, but it's amazing to me that this happens, and I thought about it and just started laughing. Mostly at myself. I spent my time on POF reading, reading, and reading. I used the precision-guided method, as opposed to the carpet-bombing method. I would read about 20-30 profiles a week, chosen using meticulous search criteria, looking for common interests, values, or whatever. I would then message the two or three that had real potential. I would individually write the email to them, and make it specific indicating that not only I read their profile, but identifying what we had in common.

    I got about a 25-40% response rate. Not bad actually. But again, most women go after the top 20% tier of men, so they would date me, but leave me as "plan-B" in case the super-alpha drummer in a punk band came along, or if Mr. IPO tech-billionaire got in touch. They would get contacted by these better guys (who may have used your strategy and contacted every damn woman on the site) and then they would cease contact with me while they tried out that fake Mr. Perfect. Of course, then a few weeks later (when it didn't work out) come back with a "heeeeyyyyy, how r u?" type message.

    I'd always write back indicating that I wasn't interested anymore, that I'm nobody's Plan B. While some would protest that they were just 'busy', most of them didn't write back after that.

    Awesome contribution. Especially the Macro. This exactly fits the idea in RecGame of economizing sexual options.

    Your method is good (considering the response rate) but carpet bombing is more time-efficient.

    Efficient at meeting women with no potential. That wastes time and money. So the efficiency is only on the messaging bit, for actual dating, my method was more efficient in both terms of time (away from the computer) and money.

    Re: POF Technical guide

    It's a sad state of affairs when men have to resort to carpet bombing tactics or programming macros to spam messages to aspire to getting access to some smelly and bloody hole on a limited basis. There is absolutely no dignity left in dating or interacting with the feral and selfish opposite sex.

    You have a point, but really for men there is a very limited menu of choices [from what I think is most common to rarest]


    • Carpet Bomb Dating
    • Pay to Play [Professional]
    • Be gay [which has it's own drama]
    • Total Abstinence
    • Find a unicorn


    If you know an alternate solution set by all means please share.
    First date: A job interview in which a slot-c tries to determine a man's financial suitability in relation to its desire for children.
    Oxytocin, more dangerous than heroin.
    I am not going to sacrifice my freedom and wealth for your ideals.

    I advocate porn and a fleshlight.

    - No STD's
    - available any time and as often as you want
    - can go as long as you want
    - one time minimal purchase fee, no wining and dining costs
    - doesn't talk back, nag, bitch, whine, or complain
    - no unexpected pregnancies

    Sounds like the most logical and safe option to me.

    Re: POF Technical guide

    This is freaking awesome! I just kicked my girlfriend to the cub. Now I have a 5 br house in the suburbs and I drive a new Mercedes. She wanted the house and the car, but now I am thinking it will be an asset for me.

    I'm never, ever getting married nor am I letting a girl live with me again. I'm a decent looking guy and I have gotten plenty of action over the years. Now that I am going my own way, I see this method as a great time saver. If I get a fat women message me, I delete it. Simple as that. But if I score a hot chick with no effort, perfect! I am too busy making money then putting my value time into searching dating websites. This method should be cool. I am running it now.

    For all of you guys, do yourself a favor. Work hard, make money, stay in shape and keep healthy. When you are rolling along, you will have more action than you need; but as you go your own way, you call the shots. You control your time, your money and your life. Nothing better! So glad I found this site.

    I get that one, work hard, make money, stay in shape, and keep healthy, the rest does itself, i personally get all my tail through real world encounters, i'm fucking the girl that gave me a haircut a few weeks ago, works for me.

    EDIT: theres a barber's school nearby my house with LOTS of very attractive young women my age (early 20's), you can get your hair cut there cheaply by senior students who are about to graduate, a terrific lasting source of pussy for me for a while now.
