You’ve come to the right place – I’ve got lots of examples to show you of the best ones, and I’ll explain why they work. POF is one of the oldest online dating sites around. It predates OkCupid minichat sign in, Tinder, Bumble – all of them!
Personally, POF was one of the very first dating sites I signed up for. It’s simple and I – like many others – like its layout, which is very different from Tinder. Ten different dating profiles are displayed on a single page alongside a photograph of the individual, one or two lines from their bio – and their headline.
And it’s this headline that can be the difference between someone clicking on your POF profile and taking a closer look at you – or continuing to scroll past you. If you can nail your headline, your ‘open rate’ will shoot up.
In this article, I’m going to take a look at 50 of the best Plenty of Fish headlines (25 for women and 25 for men) to inspire you so that you’re able to come up with an amazing one yourself.
25 POF Headlines For Women
This headline tells the man exactly what the woman is looking for. She wants to find The One and doesn’t have time for fun and games anymore. Being direct pays off.
What better way to grab attention on POF by telling men – in bold, capital letters – to STOP! Then, arouse curiosity by inviting them to come to take a lot …
Okay, hands up guys – which one of you wouldn’t want to message someone who’s dark, bitter and hot? She sounds dangerous but you’re not going to pass on this one! (I know I wouldn’t)
50 Best POF Headlines For Guys & Girls
I also like that she hasn’t just stated she’s dark, bitter and cold – she’s injected some much-needed humour and taken the edge off things by comparing herself to a cup of coffee.
If you’ve got a great sense of adventure, don’t just write “Great sense of adventure.” Put a twist on things by asking men if they want to join you around the world for the trip of a lifetime.
This headline works well because the woman is being upfront about what she’s looking for on POF. She doesn’t want lame-brains who are going to say “Hey.” She wants a guy who can actually hold a proper conversation.
If you’re looking to date someone who gets your sense of humour, try using a pop culture reference, like the one in the above image. It works like a charm.
There’s nothing wrong with creating a short bio in your headline as long as it’s not generic. Here we have theatre (something to do), adventure (outgoing personality) and laughter (doesn’t take themselves too seriously).
Sass won’t always have mass appeal but this kind of headline is laced with humour, it’s edgy and it gives guys an idea of what the girl is all about.
‘Warning’ is a word commonly used in marketing. It’s meant to subtly but playfully play on our worst temptations. We know we shouldn’t like a girl who’s going to take photos of her food all the time – but the fact that she’s already warned us about this means we’re going to go ahead and date her anyway.
If you’re a gamer looking to date a fellow gamer, it helps to add a video game reference to your headline – like this winner here.
Nothing says “hip” or cool as a line like this. If you vibe, you vibe. You dig, ladies and gents?
