PlentyofFish Inundated With Marriage Success Stories

Plentyoffish has thousands upon thousands of marriages and its getting hard not to find people in your group of friends that haven’t found someone on plentyoffish  at least in Canada.

A few days ago I added a new section to the site that show cases hundreds of the tens of thousands of marriages that are formed as a result of using

According to exit polling when people leave,  Plentyoffish generates more relationships per year than any other dating service and in a couple of years we will have more marriages then any other services.  This is because marriages lag relationships by a few years.

The canadian market is split in 2,  people pay for casual dating on and all the serious daters use   Other then plentyoffish there are no serious dating sites that have marketshare in canada.    In the united states there aren’t a heck of a lot of casual daters using plentyoffish.  The average age of a plentyoffish user in the US is 39,  this is higher then any paid dating service.

    Markus. How was the SN conference in CA?

    I was actually dazzled when visiting “just married” page (^_^), many of them are marring this year.
    Also 45000 concurrent users on many nights is dazzling!

    In your earlier post your were saying that “As a free site I still have to pay $5.00 a member just like paid sites if you want to advertise.” When one buys advertising he can set up targeting by age for his campaigns to get the desired customer age so no wonder you get these numbers.

    I’m surprised that as a programmer you consistently get “then” and “than” confused. “Then” is like the programming construct “if … then …”, or like when you’re telling a story: “and then this happened”. The four uses above should all be “than” as in “greater than” or “less than”, another programming idiom: more relationships per year than any other, more marriages than, other than, it is higher than. Oh, and “it’s getting harder”, as in “it is getting harder”.

    Bit petty no?

    People will always look for something to take someone down a peg or two.

    Watch out for the grammar police. They’re everywhere.

    Ya I can’t spell.

  8. Joe Says:

    I wasn’t trying to put anyone down. I was trying to help Markus by using a context that perhaps he could appreciate.

    There are 5×71=355 entries in your new section where people talk about their success stories. 355×2=715 individuals reporting success. You take this number, you divide it by 2 (for two years 2005-2007), you multiply it by 100, and divide the result by the average number of members/year, and you get the probability of success per year of a Plantyoffish member. If you take a constant average of 1,000,000 members/year, you get 0.0355%/year. That’s approximately your chance to get a successful dating result as a Plantyoffish member. Perhaps not everybody reports his/her success story. If in reality for every member reporting his/her success story there are 120 others experiencing success but not reporting it, your chance of success becomes 1%/year (for every report of success you have 2 individuals). Not bad for a free thing. But can you call that a dating service? Would you still consider your financial broker if he tells you that there is only 1% chance that you will make money with him?

    Your math is pretty off.

    1. Its actually over 600, but I only took the best ones.
    2. Marriages normally lag relationships by 3-5 years.
    3. Plentyoffish grew 20 fold in the last 2 years.

    At the end of the day your chances of finding someone on a free site will always be far higher then a paid site. By the end of 2007 Plentyoffish will generate more marriages then Eharmony and combined as a result of relationships formed in 2007.

    Even using your math, Plentyoffish still has more marriages than Eharmony with its 10 million plus members.

    I was just on the site and have been enjoying it, but it is either down or unavailable in the midst of a conversation (on line chat)
    Does this happen often? It is my 1st time with this problem.

    Hi Marcus
    Thank you for pof, yes there are lots of funky people out there however your idea / concept is great and I love it when soulmates find each other. How successful is the UK site with regards to marriage, there appears to be lots of nerdy folk who just want to email forever actually ignore the word nerd I work in an IT co and technical folk are not like that!

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your content seem to be running off the screen
    in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post
    to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
