The 2019 Editor's Top Pick - Free award winner is Plenty of Fish (POF). This is one of the harder categories to figure out. The top 3 free dating apps have lots of members but it is the combination of features and user feedback that in the end helped us make the decision. POF does not lack the features which make it easy to use and allow its members to find matches and start conversations quickly. In fact every day on the service on average 2.5 million users message each other. If you are in your thirties to forties then you will feel right at home on POF as a large portion of members are in this age range. Remember within a month of using the service, 30% of POF members report that they have found a partner, so it does not take long before you see results.
Plenty of Fish can be accessed from their website and dating apps (iOS and Android). It only takes a few minutes to initially signup and maybe another 10 to 20 minutes to get a decent profile started with some quality photos uploaded. It's always best (especially if you are new to online dating) to review your profile weekly and make any tweaks and optimizations to help people find your profile. The more information you offer, the better the chance someone you will like will find your profile and make a connection.
POF is free to use but they do offer an upgrade which give their paying members a few more perks. These include things like email read notifications and no online ads. An upgrade can cost as low as $7 a month.
