PlentyofFish.com founder Marcus Frind just announced that the Intimate Encounters section of his site will be going away. His reasons for this state that the section doesn’t actually have (m)any hot females. Frind states, "Intimate encounters on POF can be summed up as a bunch of horny men talking to a bunch of horny men pretending to be women." Some are hailing this move as a cleaning up of online dating world. I am baffled.

We were scrolling through one of the features where the site suggests people it thinks you may be interested in. A picture of a dark haired, blue-eyed guy that lived about 20 miles away popped up.

I actually thought that pleasant statements really meant something about the person when I went on dating sites. But after a lot of email and phone conversations, and writing Create New Love, I learned my lesson. They had a Pollyanna view of life, or they had their profile written by a professional, or they combined all the positive traits in profiles they read! So I learned to read between the lines.
