POF.com, Plentyoffish.com, POF.com V TallSingles.co.uk, Plentyoffish.com V TallSingles.co.uk

Plentyoffish.com for those of you who don't know is probably one of the best known free sites.  It started off as a totally free site which grew membership numbers very quickly.  More recently it introduced a paid upgrade which gives additional benefits.

Here is an unbiased review of these two dating sites, we have come up with 6 topics you need to consider when choosing which of these sites to join.

#1. What do you get for free?

This is one major difference on TallSingles.co.uk you get the following services for free:

You can create a profile and upload pictures

You can search for members

You can view other member’s profiles

On plentyoffish.com you get all this for free, but crucially you also get to be able to send messages to other members and read messages from other members.  This is something that you only get with paid membership on Tallsingles.co.uk.

#2. What you get for paid membership

Plentyoffish.com gives you some extra benefits, the most beneficial are as follows:

Upload 16 images to your profile.

Unlock every user's Extended Profile.

See if your emails were read or deleted.

Show up first on Meet Me!

Experience POF ad-free!

Send three gifts per day.

Stand out in all searches.

See who wants to meet you.


With Tallsingles.co.uk paid membership gives you the following benefits:

Read and send messages

Put yourself in the Spotlight

Send gifts to members you like

Chat online with members

Subscribe to mobile alerts

Write your own dating diary

In order to message people on TallSingles.co.uk you have to join as a paid member and that crucially is the difference between Plentyoffish and any true membership dating site.  There are many reasons as to why TallSingles.co.uk has to make this charge, essentially it is to cover costs.  Pleantyoffish.com doesn’t require this fee since it makes its money from paid advertising.

#3. Mobile Aps

Both Plentyoffish.com and Tallsingles.co.uk have very good mobile applications which are accessible on both iOS and android.

#4. Mainstream V’s Niche

Plentyoffish.com is a mainstream online dating site, accessible to everyone across the UK of any age.  TallSingles.co.uk is a Niche dating site, which aims to help tall people find love online.  We only invite tall members to join our site, tall just means above average height.  So women have to be above 5’5’’ tall and men above 6’0’’.  We started the site because we understand the issues that tall people have when finding love.  We have created a community for tall single people.  All our members are tall and we want to embrace being tall and help tall people throughout the UK find love.

#5. Commitment

When you sign up for a free dating site there is no commitment there.  You might be signing up after coming home from a drunk night and your mates dared you into it.  Or you want to see if you can have some fun being chased, but you would rather not pay, so you can join for free.

But how do you, the serious dater, the one who actually wants to meet someone and start a serious relationship, know who they are so you can avoid them.  Do you get my point here?  You might actually fancy someone on a free site who has no intention of dating someone in a serious relationship.

The difference with a paid membership is that someone has actually made that choice.  They have decided that they want to meet someone and have paid to do so.  With membership of TallSingles.co.uk costing £79.95 and some more mainstream sites costing even more than that.  It’s not cheap and making that payment shows commitment, a conscious decision to find someone to date and fall in love with. 

#6. Membership numbers

One of the questions you will want to ask yourself when choosing a dating site is how many members does it have? And more importantly how many members live in your area?

TallSingles has 1,514,213 members in the UK, meeting our specific tall membership criteria which is women taller than 5’5 and men over 6’0.

Well unfortunately unlike TallSingles.co.uk, many dating sites do not want to give away membership numbers and Plentyoffish.com is no different.  Due to its free status it will certainly have more members than TallSingles.co.uk, but how many of those are serious about starting a relationship and how many are committed.

There is a couple of options to decide which site is best in terms of members and membership numbers in your area, these are:

#6.1. Join both sites for free.

As mentioned in #5 you can join both sites for free and then you can compare their member numbers by searching for members in your area.  When you do this, ensure you apply the same search criteria so that you compare the sites on a similar basis.

#6.2. Use a dating comparison site

There is a very good dating comparison site called comparedatingsitesearches.  All you do is complete a simple form and then they will email you back with the dating sites which have the most single members meeting your requirement in your immediate area.

We hope you have enjoyed reading this comparison and we hope it means you join the best dating site for you.

Are you tall and single?  Why don’t you consider joining tallsingles.co.uk and discuss this type of experience with others?  We are free to join.  A small fee is payable if you decide to make contact with other members, this covers our costs of running the site.  With 1.5 million members all across the UK so there is bound to be someone near you.  Plus we are 43% cheaper than the UK’s best known dating site Match.com*.
