Those of you following @30dates on Twitter will have seen the calibre of some of the messages I get.
Lots of them are ‘mailshot’ style messages, where the guy clearly has a set message which he copies and pastes to multiple girls.
Most guys are pretty upfront about what they are looking for.
One 21-year-old user told the Independent: "I used to get all sorts emailing me, asking to be my slave and asking for sex. It seems people just want casual fun."Another, aged 29, said: "At first I was shocked, but it happened so often, it just became laughable.
I wouldn't say I'm very attractive but I was getting about 53 emails a day from men."Sometimes I would get alerts at 3am, from men telling me their wife wanted a threesome.
But the increasing use of smartphone apps had enabled a small core of men to use the site exclusively for casual "hook-ups", leading many women to complain of harassment.
An estimated 2% of the site's male users "started to use POF as more of a hook-up site, mostly due to the casual nature of mobile phone use", Frind acknowledged.
But if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
An internet dating site which offers the promise of no-strings-attached "hook-ups" has been forced to tighten up its vetting procedures after it was revealed that less than 0.2% of its users were women seeking casual sex.In an email to all users of the site, Frind said he had ordered an overhaul after finding that only 6,041 of the site's 3.3 million daily users were women looking for a one-night stand."Intimate encounters on POF can be summed up as a bunch of horny men talking to a bunch of horny men pretending to be women," said Frind."The ones with hot pictures are mostly men pretending to be women."Frind also moved to curtail members' ability to contact other users where the age gap was more than 14 years."There is no reason for a 50-year-old man to contact 18-year-old women," he said.Why go clubbing to find a shag, if you can go online from the comfort of your home, and check out hundreds of times the number of suitors than you could ever meet in one night in a club?So, for six months, I was pretty careful to try to seek out the eligible guys looking for a relationship, as opposed to those simply looking for another notch on their bedpost!Ironically, this technique is pretty obvious if you send the same message to the same girl every couple of weeks!
