PlentyofFish has enlargened their security early ter 2011 due to several hacker attacks. This means the sign up process is a bit of a agony. They require you to choose a password that is so complicated that you’re corded to leave behind it.

Most profiles have at least two pictures, the basic form informatie, and a few lines of text that normally go along the lines of “I’m a nice man, I don’t know what to write here indeed so I’ll just say something hopefully humorous for the next sentence or two.” The form information includes children (wants/has), smoking, zodiac sign, age, religion, drug use, if they have a car, profession, drinking, marital status, and education. Things like hobbies, interests, and political affiliation are blatantly missing from the list.
