At first I was really shocked by it, 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 which would be alerted to on my phone.

Writing to members on Monday, Markus Frind, the Canadian founder of Plenty of Fish (POF), said that he had been forced to make a series of changes to its membership rules because too many male users are harassing women for sex.

The entrepreneur said that he had decided to scrap the “Intimate Encounters” option on the POF site due to complaints from some of its female users suffering unwanted attention.

In an August 2012 interview, Markus Frind stated that based on the millions of relationships and marriages Plenty Of Fish has created over the past several years, it is estimated that over one million babies have been born as a result of the website.

On May 20, 2013, Frind implemented several changes to the website with the stated goal of focusing on "meaningful relationships." Among these changes were the removal of the "intimate encounters" option.

At the time this received global media exposure and security experts blamed Plenty Of Fish for the security and privacy lapse specifically for keeping users' passwords unsecured.

On February 28, 2012, the parents of US Army Lieutenant Peter Burks sued Plenty Of Fish.Met at least 40 guys in person and only 1 was worth dating, dated him for 3 month then found out he was an illegal immigrant looking for marriage.I am a very attractive woman and most of the women there must be overweight and ugly, because most guys made me go on web cam before meeting as they did not believe I was real!!!While it is free to use, Plenty Of Fish offers premium services as part of their upgraded membership, such as who has "liked" a member through the service's Tinder-like Meet Me feature, and allowing users to see whether a message has been read and/or deleted.The website for Plenty Of Fish appeared in several music videos in 2010: in Lady Gaga's "Telephone", Natasha Bedingfield's "Touch", Ke$ha's "We R Who We R", Flo Rida and Akon's "Available", Jason Derulo's "Ridin' Solo", Since the alleged hacking incident, Frind alleges he has identified persons he believes are responsible for the hacking, and alleges he is threatening legal action in response to the widespread negative media exposure.Many men on there told me I was way too nice, real and good looking for the site .... I will never go on a free site again, i would rather spend thousands if I had to than waste the time involved with screening on POF.
