    Default POF and divorced

    Hey all.

    I am divorced and on POF I can choose either single or divorced. I wasn't even married for that long, but some women have a bad image of divorcees.

    I am thinking about putting single. Are any of you in the same situation or have advice?

    Depends what you want, on POF youre not going to find anything quality. My recommendation is play the field and just go with single. If you want a real relationship, well then I would start with the truth

    I'd say go with single it's a first impression here and no need to rule anything out. You're not lying you're just holding back something that could be off-putting...

    If they ask be honest and tell them about it, if they ask why you didn't put it in your profile tell them the above... first impressions count.

    As the others have said go with single, build rapport and then break it to them later on.

    Default Re: POF and divorced

    I've had mine set to both at different times... I will say I get more replies with "single" (and also excluding the fact I have kids) using the say style openers. I've only had one girl completely freak out when she found out, but it does like it causing hesitation with the couple of others.

    Short version... I agree with the other posts... if you want a LTR, honesty upfront. It also does depend on the "type" of women you want to attract. Divorced women with kids are more likely to look for a similar situation where the guy understands.

    Default Re: POF and divorced

    Thanks for all the posts! I have been getting messages back from a good number of girls when I leave it as divorced. Maybe as single I can get even more. You guys are also right that POF is probably not a good place to find a woman for a LTR.
