Unlike a *lot* of the dating apps out there, with POF, you don't have to link to your Facebook account.
So this means that you can be anonymous and use a username versus your actual name, which definitely has its benefits.
For instance, if you crossed paths at a certain bookstore, you automatically have a common interest, which is a good start.
Plenty Of Fish (POF) made the top four apps and came in third place as the most popular dating app, with 26 percent of mentions.
According to Forbes, the United States alone has 2,500 dating sites, and about 1,000 new dating sites are launched every year.
