How do I change my About Me, Conversation Starters, or Interests?

Click here: http://www.pof.com/editprofile.aspx and scroll to the "Your Description" section.

Don't forget to click "Update Profile" to save your changes!

If your Description is not saving, it may be for the following reasons:

  • It’s too short. Tell us more about yourself!
  • It includes a series of numbers, random letters, or dates, or an email address or link to another site, or it includes words our spam filter will detect.
  • Your screen resolution needs to be higher, or your screen is too narrow. If you have set your resolution to anything less than 1280X1024 you will only see a change to the background color of your profile.

How do I change my answers to the questions I filled out when I signed up?

How do I edit my username?

The option to update your username is available to upgraded members on POF. To change your username, as well as unlock POF's best features, upgrade today! http://www.pof.com/upgrade.aspx

You can update your POF username by following these instructions. (Note, usernames can only be changed on the web at POF.com, or via the Android and iPhone apps.)

To update your username when upgraded:

  1. Click on "Edit Profile" in the top right corner of the page (or if using one of the apps, click on Profile, and then "Edit Profile")
  2. Scroll all the way down to the very bottom of the page (or, if using the iPhone app it's located just above Mail Settings)
  3. Update your username then click Update Registration (or if using the Android app, click the green 'save' check mark, and in the iPhone app click "Update Profile" to save your changes.)

If you tried to change your username, and it did not save, it's likely due to one of the following:

  1. You did not click "Update Registration"/"Update Profile" to save the change
  2. The username you have chosen is already taken (consider adding some numbers)
  3. The username contains invalid characters, such as @,'& etc
  4. The username contained a space - usernames must be one "word"

Please choose a new username, and try again!
