First message blocked on Plenty of Fish?

    I tried sending a message to a guy on POF but the message was blocked - instead I got a notification saying that the guy "accepts messages only from certain users. Why not message one of your Matches instead?" We haven't even made contact yet, how does a guy block someone pre-emtively??

    Since it's you, the message was probably to some 20 year old, and you're probably 2 decades older than the upper age limit of the message restrictions on his profile. POF has this option for people to filter out messages from unlikely candidates, so that it doesn't become a creepy place like Grindr.

    After reading all these replies, I realised there are still 'mean little trolls' hiding in RJ.

    look at seekingyounger's other posts here... they're all about well, seeking younger. No surprise here. What's surprising is that Radd hasn't jumped in whining about how "ageist" POF is for allowing this option icon_lol.gif Better than having the message go through and still be ignored, I'd think.
