So you’ve had enough of the bullcrap on PlentyofFish, you’re sick of the perverts, tired of not having any women respond to your messages, and generally fed-up with trying to find a date on this free mediocre dating site. If this is the case then it’s likely you’ve been trying to figure out a way to delete your Plenty of Fish account and profile. Unfortunately, Markus does not make this easy and for most people, they have an easier time finding the solution via Google search than through navigation of the POF site. But don’t fret, I’m here to help you out.
Click here if you want to delete your POF account and then follow the quick guide below if you need further navigation instructions, as it’s not readily apparent on the page where you need to go to remove your Plenty of Fish profile.
If you clicked the link above, you should come to a page that looks like this:
As you’ll see most of the page consists of misleading links that are basically either trying to get you to stick with the service, upgrade to premium (yea right!), or have some other interaction on POF. If you’re intent on deleting your account then I wouldn’t bother reading or dealing with any of these, just scroll past them towards the bottom until you find the “delete your account” link that looks like this:
You’ll likely get a pop-up that asks you to confirm the removal of your profile, so go ahead and click that too if you’re absolutely sure you want off of the site. Be forewarned though, once you delete your Plenty of Fish profile, you won’t be able to get it back. The only thing you’d be able to do is sign-up again and start over from scratch.
Now if you think that you might still want to use your Plenty of Fish profile in the future but need to take a break, like myself, then the other option is to put your profile into hibernation, hiding your profile, so that it is not visible to anyone else on the website. And then once you’re ready you can simply go back and re-activate the profile. If this type of thing interests you instead, then go to the same page and click on the link shown below, which is located about half way down on the same deletion page.
I know that this quick tutorial on deleting a PlentyofFish account probably seems a bit much to some people but I do get a large number of requests asking questions on removing profiles so I thought this post would help alleviate those peoples frustrations. However, if anyone is still stuck, please let me know in the comments below and I’ll try to help you out as best I can.
