Plenty of Fish, often abbreviated as POF, is an online dating platform with more than 150 million registered users worldwide. Founded in 2003, the company is owned by the Match Group, which owns and operates other popular dating platforms, including Tinder, Match.com, OkCupid, and Hinge, among others. 

When a user creates an account on Plenty of Fish, they are able to select preferences and provide information that is used to search for potential matches, including a minimum and maximum age range. However, there are certain scenarios where the website’s search engine, which contains an age range filter, will override the user’s preference. Instead of providing potential matches covering the entire desired age range, the platform limits matches to within a certain number of years of the user’s age. 

If you or someone you know was an active user on POF during the last 4 years, your rights may have been violated, and you may be entitled to compensation.

Client-Centered Justice

According to its platform, POF invites users to “become a part of a community of singles where you can come exactly as you are,” but we believe Plenty of Fish has violated the rights of millions of Californians by limiting the age range of potential connections on the platform. In addition, the age range may have been limited even further for women, making this a case of both age and gender discrimination.

If you fit the following criteria, you may be eligible for compensation:

  • Active user of Plenty of Fish between September 1, 2019 and September 1, 2023

  • Free or premium membership holder

  • California resident

California Age and Gender Discrimination Laws

Enacted in 1959, the Unruh Civil Rights Act is a California state law that specifically prohibits discrimination in business establishments on the basis of factors such as age, gender, race, color, religion, sex, marital status, national origin, ancestry, disability, and sexual orientation. This law is designed to ensure that all individuals have equal access to services and accommodations in California, regardless of their background or personal characteristics. 

Violations of the Unruh Civil Rights Act can lead to legal penalties and financial liabilities for the discriminating party. If you believe you may have been affected by Plenty of Fish’s age range limits, please contact Singleton Schreiber today.
