POF Advanced Search Feature
Lately POF has introduced a new feature on their website which is the POF Advanced Search. Through this feature, the users can search now not only in their own state but when they put in their requirements they can nationwide results meaning that they do not have to limit themselves to dating the people that are available in their own state but they can date people nationwide. This feature had people in conflict over whether it is a good addition or not.
The good thing about POF Advanced Search is that it does not limit people to their own small state anymore and they can spread out their wings all over the world but this same thing can be taken into negative sense such that how is one supposed to date a person who lives a thousand miles away from that individual and this a reason that this feature was not liked by people.
