If you’re sick of POF, here are some Free alternatives similar to Plenty of Fish. They all have their pros and cons and you will have a higher chance of meeting someone on some more so than others, the most important factor being the ratio of males to females.
Users indicate their private information, name, surname and date of birth, gender and the place of living. Just a brief description of yourself and a selfie is enough. You will get to know the person in real-life

You don’t just join – you must be invited based on a strict screening process upon registration to ensure eligible singles with similar lifestyles. Members provide plenty of details about themselves and are selected based on their profession, education, age, interests and more according to the CEO.
If you’re a man, the greatest advantage of Inner Circle is that unlike POF and other dating sites there isn’t a disproportionate ratio of women to men. In fact, It’s so popular among women that the site owners had to have a one month ban on allowing new female members signing up. Also the Inner Circle hosts plenty of “exclusive parties” — held at some of London’s “most glamorous” venues. The Inner Circle currently hosts offline events on a regular basis for users located in Amsterdam, London, Paris, Milan, Barcelona and Stockholm.

This dating app is not recommended unless you’ve got a thick skin or very good looking. The disproportionate number of men to women mean you’ll have a hard time finding a date, even if you meet their criteria. Also some of the profiles will be spammers such as call girls. It caters more to guys than gals whereby and superficiality matters more than substance.
You signup through facebook and add a photo of yourself with just a few characters for the description. You swipe left to pass or swipe right to like when viewing other users profiles. If the other user swipes the same way then you’re a match. It’s somewhat similar to the Plenty of Fishe like function. Don’t expect to get a positive response soon as women are inundated by men trying to contact them.
One advantage of the app is the number of users. You should find people just about anywhere with the app and the live chat feature means you can talk straight away.
The paid version for $9.99 / month includes unlimited swiping, GPS spoof,a super like function and the ability to undo an accidental swipe.

Similar to Tinder in that Bubble’s main platform is a hot or not-style swiping game, in which you swipe left to pass or right to like. Also like Tinder the app requires facebook to signup but unlike Tinder communication is in the hands of females and is only available for 24 hours after a mutual match is made. This encourages females to be more active and initiate conversation. It also means men waist less time typing out a message to someone who is unlikely to respond.
It’s free to join and if you want extra functionality you can pay $9.99 a month. This will enable you to see people who have already liked you so you don’t have to swipe and wait for matches. It will also enable you to reconnect with expired matches, extend beyond 24 hours and provide an undo accidental swipe feature like tinder.

OkCupid is more detail orientated than Tinder in that users tend to fill out a lot more information about themselves, so you can avoid those who aren’t looking for a serious relationship. However just like Tinder, men significantly outnumber women. Unlike Tinder and Bumble anyone can contact you without matching first. This can lead to women receiving too much unwanted attention.
It used to be a very popular site but has decline in popularity due to the rise of Tinder and Bumble which offers a more geo-specific experience.
I noticed from a number of reviews that customer service isn’t always that great – even if you’re a paying member – with some members claiming it was difficult to contact customer service and how they’ve been scammed by some users. Also some users claimed they got blocked for no apparent reason after using the site for a number of months.

Happns is quite a sophisticated app created by computer engineers who came up with the idea of finding people you’ve crossed paths with (within a 250meter radius). The app is designed to save you from missed connections, “boosting luck again”.
If you’re shy about approaching that person who gave you the look, maybe you can contact them via happn. Happn’s popularity has skyrocketed with 100,000 people signing up for the app within the first five weeks.
Just like Tinder it anonymously creates your dating profile using facebook. It will then use GPS tracking to present you with a list of people near you. How many times you’ve crossed paths with them and a map of roughly where you crossed paths, their photos, name, age and profession and what you may have in common.
If you like what you see, you can hit the red love heart and if it’s mutual you can start messaging straight away. Even without a mutual like you can send a charm, which they’ll see.
The majority of those using this app are under 40 and conversations can be hard to come by.
