This may mean he is on his honeymoon and not close to home which could result in Plenty Of Fish taking a little while longer to get up and running again.
I expect Plenty Of Fish to be online again sometime late morning or early afternoon.
‘I really want to see Spruce settle down with the right girl and after searches for potential mates at other Sea Life centres proved fruitless I thought it was time to look further afield.’ Seriously, if Spruce can’t get a date, what chance do us humans have?
Advertising him as a ‘single penguin looking for chicks’, the profile lists his likes as ‘seafood and swimming’, and favourite bands as Reel Big Fish and Noah and the Whale.
Thanks for sharing our penguin's dating profile @mags4dorset! He wants children, loves swimming and diving and his favorite bands are Reel Big Fish and Hootie and the Blowfish.
Help Spruce the penguin find love on @Plenty Of Fish - https://t.co/2KLj Ru Y5m Apic.twitter.com/N6r XMXx K8D— Weymouth SEA LIFE (@SEALIFEWeymouth) May 19, 2017They advertised him as a "single penguin looking for chicks" and a family man at heart. His love interest must be willing to move and she has to be the right fit.
Spruce spends his days swimming around and eating fish at Weymouth Sea Life Centre in Dorset, but he’s found romance pretty hard to come by.
All the female penguins are partnered up, and as they mate for life, poor Spruce is single.
Plenty of Fish is a great dating site but POF pisses a lot of people of, mostly, because of POF’s tendency to seemingly and randomly delete peoples profiles.
It’s pretty tricky to find love in 2017 – even if you’re an adorable penguin.
Spruce is a one-year-old Humboldt penguin who is desperate to find someone – so to help him out, his handlers have created an online dating profile for him on Plenty of Fish.
If you are single and curious, or if you are not single and wondering what people are talking about – let me show you.
At the signup stage you are asked for all sorts of basic information and essentially told that you “have to” include a picture.
It looks like the website has been down for at least an hour now ( am EST).
A connection timeout error with a website usually indicates a problem with accessing the web server (it took too long to respond).
Trying to comb through the details of potential partners, swiping left and right and crafting the perfect "About Me" section.
Not to mention the dating horror stories when you actually do meet up and find you're totally incompatible.
I tend to have an opinion about dating sites that would be best served in another blog post.
Needless to say, if I had met a women, that would be great – but it was not my core motivator.
