POF dating can incorporate not only quantity but quality in comparison.
No longer are you stuck trying to meet someone by going out on your only days off from work.
You have not only spent a ton of money on items such a cologne, hair products and outfits, but before the night is over you most likely are going to spend much more on drinks, club fees and even gasoline.
You may or may not meet someone and for most of the working world your time is limited to 2 days a week.
The traditional approach to dating is expensive, laborious and at times quite exhausting.
