You may find that you are blocked on POF by someone. But, actually you want to send them a message because you have something important that you want to say to them. But, how to send a message to someone who blocked you on POF?
Sending Messages to Someone Who Blocked You on POF
When you try to send someone a message on POF, and then instead of getting the ‘message successfully sent’, you may get a message which says that you have been blocked by this user. It means that you are blocked by that person and you are not able to send messages to that person anymore.
There is no other way that you can do to send them a message. However, if you know the social media accounts of that person, you are able to try to send messages through it. But, you have to make sure that you send them a message not to disturb them. If it is because there is something important that you want to say such as saying sorry or the other positive things, then you can try to send them a message through their social media accounts. But if you just want to play around or disturb them again, it is better for you to stop doing it because they may be able to block you on their social media or even report you.
The Reasons Why Getting Blocked
There are some reasons why people are blocked by the other users on POF. Usually, people are blocked because they send offensive language, spam messages, inappropriate images, or any content which violates POF community guidelines.

Even the team of POF has the right to be able to delete any account which has violated one or more of the Community Guidelines. It is recommended for the members of POF to report violent behaviour to make POF a safe place for people to find their soulmate.
