Online dating with Plenty of Fish can definitely be worth it. Though the site isn't flashy, it is functional and effective. Plenty of Fish has many success stories and it claims to be the largest dating website with more dates and relationships than any other site. It is available in many countries.
Plenty of Fish has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fox, CNN and other media. Advantages of the site are that most features are free, there are a high number of active daily users, the forums are popular, and the sign-up process can be quick because of the option to pass on some questions until later. There is a Chemistry Test available that measures self-confidence, family orientation, self-control, openness and how easy-going the user is to ensure compatible personality matches.
One disadvantage of Plenty of Fish is having to pass a relationship test in order obtain an upgraded membership. The upgraded membership does not give many additional features, but does allow the user's profile to stand out with a "gold star." Users need to be aware that they may have to go on quite a few bad dates in order to find "the one."
