It really isn't meant to be offensive. All it means is that there are plenty of fish in the sea! So if you got heart broken by one, it's ok, because there are a lot of people out there who won't break your heart!
Online dating has a weird stigma, but it's really ok. Especially when you move and know *NO ONE* in a huge city. I moved to NYC a few years ago, and knew not a single person. I got on Plenty of Fish, and had steady dates, girlfriends, etc, while I was there. The site is great, and it works.
The only thing you have to do is set up your profile correctly. Ie, don't make yourself look boring. Some people put up photos they took of themselves in a mirror, by themselves. What does that tell me about you? It tells me that you're boring. So put up photos of you having fun. You're a sailor, put up lots of great photos of you battling the ocean, or cruising in paradise, etc.
By the way, since we can kinda guess you were looking for a "casual encounter" (haha), from your other thread, POF is also a great source to meet women who just want to smash private parts together! kidding! (not really)
