I have been on alt.com and now AFF for one month. I had some issues with alt.com, but nothing compared to AFF. For starters, AFF is totally based on making you pay extra for everything. For example, I joined for $20 for one month gold membership. In order to talk/email with standard women members, you have to pay an additional fee to read their email. You also get email messages from ambassadors and other women overseas who have no interest in you at. Next, there is the issue of points, gifts etc which pervade the entire AFF. In order to do anything at all, instant message someone, watch their web cam, send them an email or whatever, there is a continual and ongoing push for you to spend $10 and buy 1000 credits which you then send to the women.
Avoid AFF since it is a blatant scam. You will find your gold basic monthly fee is not the ceiling but the floor of money you will spend. You will end up spending another $8 to $10 a month on the standard email reading scam. You will spend, at least, $10 for 1000 points which don't last very long at all. You will spend extra money on gifts and flowers etc. In fact, if you don't watch yourself you will easily end up spending another $20 to $50 a month over the original $10. That doesn't include any live cam shows, for which you will get at least one or two notifications each time you are online there.
I also found that only three, repeat three, of the women who viewed me, out of 20, were within 100 miles of me. You know you are dealing with scammers when you get passionate requests from a 22 year old girl in Peru.
The bottom line is AFF is one of the worst dating sites I have dealt with. I have been on alt.com, zoosk, a couple of the MILF ones, which are total scams.
I will cancel my account, and hope they don't screw me on my bank account. I am very, very unimpressed with AFF, especially since they are the parent company for Alt.com. I never had the level and type of issues, especially reading emails, I do at AFF.
Again, avoid AFF unless you want to get constantly overwhelmed with scammers, fake profiles and a near total whining for money no matter what you are doing at AFF. It is also clear to me I screwed up by not coming here and reading all the reviews, the VAST MAJORITY OF WHICH ARE TOTALLY NEGATIVE AT ONE.
I learned my lesson about AFF. Based on my not nearly as bad experience with alt.com I assumed I was dealing with a good dating site with AFF. Boy, was I wrong. Like I said, I will cancel my account, lick my wounds, and move on. You should learn from my mistake with AFF.
One final thing I will note. In both alt.com and AFF they have some real issues with numbers of people listed. AFF shows 14,500 women listed as seeking men in Oregon. Of that number, and I counted them, page after page, 250 are active on the day you are online. Roughly another 1,000 are active up to 90 days. This means, just like alt.com roughly 85 to 90 percent of the people listed are dead accounts going back, in some cases, nearly a decade. This is something else to keep in mind when reviewing AFF.
I was getting pretty pissed off with online dating and havin no luck what so ever. A bit like london buses tho nothing for months then I found two at almost the same time. This one, adult friend finder, is keeping me busy in the dirty chat side of things (gotta love the younger generation for inventing sexting) and another site ive been using (hookuphangout.com) is going a step further, getting me some actual meetings with birds. Im not gonna say my believes are totally back but its def a step in the right way.
The results speak for themselves! I've had sex w/ five women I met on Adultfriendfinder. Five women in 12 weeks is not bad at all. Those of you who use hookupsites know what I am talking about. And five hookups in 12 weeks, well that makes this the second best result oriented site following CasualDating4u.com where I've met seven girls in 10 weeks. Let me summarize: Adultfriendfinder is a great source to bang girls!
Those of you who don't have any success using Adultfriendfinder I have some advise for you:
Completely avoid the superhot women! You may wonder why? There are two reasons for that. First, most superhot women are not even real. Often those are fake profiles with scammers behind them. Second, even if they are real they are contacted by so many men it makes it hard to get a response from them. If you are not a superhandsome fella yourself you should go for the average looking woman.
I would say this site is a good choice IMO if you are looking for NSA dating/ flings and is actually a lot better than iI expected it to be. You have to pay to use all of the features (in fact you have to pay to use the all main things, only searching is free if I remember right) but then thats the same with most of the top sex dating sites e.g Hookuphangout.com etc. So after you pay you get to send messages and read them as well, pretty vital, but its not expensive at all and you can get it cheaper if you take a longer option like 3 months or 6 months or whatever. Ive had some good nights because of this site and generally prefer it to a lot of the other sites out there so if you're reading this because your not sure then id say go for it but top tip is to make sure your check how many girls are in your area before you pay. Good luck!
AFF has been around forever and anyone claiming that it's a scam really needs to explain what he or she was expecting. Certainly there are several fake profiles but I'd consider that 'normal'. I haven't found any hookup site where I did not find fake profiles, not even on CasualDating4u.com, which is famous for the huge number of real and active members. I have been using AFF a few years ago but I was an active member and trust me: I got laid! And I am pretty much sure that this site still delivers and provides quality hookup dating.
The site has an ambassador program that allows women to earn points by sending emails to new standard members who are unable to read the emails unless they purchase a membership. The women can also earn points by interacting on the site via email in general, camming, etc. and the points can be exchanged for cash. Men have no way of knowing if a woman is really interested in them or if she is just interacting to earn points/cash.
I must admit i do like this site, I've had a mixed time of it so far but the good far outweighs the bad overall. Sometimes you can wait a while for anyone to get back to you but even the best sites in the online dating world like hookuphangout.com give you dry days. But when they do reply u know your in for a fun night cos its just that kind of loose sex site where the real girls are dreams come true in terms of not wanting relationships and all that BS. They don't have to be pretty, just game you know haha my kind of girls ;-) Would recommend but keep in mind not to lose faith, keep firing the messages and likes out and keep remembering its worth it when you reel one in!
Guys need to know that it takes more than just to join to get laid using AFF. Men outnumber women on every hook up site so what you need to do is to stand out from the crowd! Create a nice profile and upload some nice pictures. Don't ever send d#$ pictures. Never ever! Be patient and be creative.
It is also very advisible to use more than just one hook up site. CasualDating4u.com is an absolutely amazing site which will give you access to many female profiles. You may wanna use more than just one site to maximize your chances.
Whatever you do, don't expect to hookup within a week or so. It takes more time. You may be lucky and hook up faster but from my experience it takes a few weeks before you will have your first date.
I had known about AFF for years and thought I would give it a real try but quickly learned that most of the "people" are fake. I was getting contacted out of the blue by people hundreds or thousands of miles away and there was no reason for them to do so. One even said she was coming to my town on business. Yeah, sure. They would ignore my requests to tell me about themselves and would ask for my email address.
I also didn't appreciate the fact that if you blocked a profile, you could still be in their "hotlist" and you would get notified if they viewed your profile.
Toward the end of my subscription, I was even having trouble deleting messages sent to me. The site seems kind of flaky.
Tip for consumers: Subscribe for only a month and see how it goes. They have "verified" and "confirmed" profiles which may be indications that they are real people. I recommend you don't even bother with AFF to begin with but if you want to try, avoid a profile that isn't verified. They should actually have some options to enforce that: "don't show me profiles that aren't verified, don't let unverified profiles contact me".Ask John about AdultFriendFinder
For me this is 1 of the better sex search websites that youll find on the net. Its been around for years and years, has a big member base and is easy enough to sign up to and use. I use the iphone app quite a lot as was able to get it with a google search (couldnt find it in the app store but maybe I missed it). Helps a lot when you can use your phone for a dating site as a lot of the time your out and about or traveling places and thats when youve got time to send some messages or check for new replies. I like HookupHangout.com for the same reason, the mobile site works really well and keep you involved in the site even if youve not got your laptop with you at all times. For me this is 7 or maybe even an 8 out of 10. If I get lucky ill be pushing that a bit higher of course!!!!
i wanted to try one month gold for around 29.95 by using electronic check crooked ffing bastards switched it to a year for 240 dollars i contacted my bank had them close the check account and open a new one. then they come back asky why stopped payment i told them ffing crooked bastards. and on top of that you haave to pay another 9 dollars a month just to be able to send a message to someone. before that you didnt have to pay just to send a message to someone. adult friend finder worse dating site to go to find a woman.
I have been using adult hook up sites for four years now and you have no idea how many terrible sites you will find looking for girls who just want to get laid. I don't aggrandize when I tell you that over 90% of all adult hook up sites are useless!!! AdultFriendFinder.com is one sites which still delivers. In my personal opinion I'd rate this one of the top three sites among with CasualDating4u.com and CasualSexOnly.com (which is rather a new and smaller adult hook up site). Despite the average review I saw on SiteJabber I think there is no reason to complain. Some fake profiles? So what?! Get over it It is the internet!!!
Been using AFF for around 30 days now, decided to give it another month as its been a pretty awesome experience overall. Id put it alongside HookupHangout.com as the easiest sites for hooking up with chicks online. So far I've had quite a few showing an interest in me and had one meeting with a petite red head with a great body (but dont get me wrong, I've been working my ass off sending out messages as if my balls depended on it, which they kinda do)! Im hoping to see her again and meet with another couple of chicks that I've been sexting back and forth. All in all a damn good first month so lets see what the next one brings for me!
Wouldnt hurt to add more women of course but in general this is a site that I have been using quite nicely along with Hookuphangout.com and its a case of so far so good. I like the way the site works and its easy to contact members and check responses on mobile or whatever. I even had a chance to test the customer support due to an issue with my payment and that was top notch as well, so really have no complaints and once I start turing the dirty chats into sex sessions ill be a happy man!
They will randomly terminate your account after ~2 months just because they are money grubbing scumbags. $50 stolen by these greedy pricks and I vow to expose AFF far and wide, and will NEVER recommend them or give my money again. I suggest anyone on the fence about paying for AFF take the time to read these reviews so you understand it is NOT worth it, they are pathetic thieves, and there's better non-scam alternatives such as SLS.
Tip for consumers: Do not pay to upgrade gold membership for 12 months $50 deal or your account gets de-activate and the money stolen.Ask John about AdultFriendFinder
All those guys leaving bad reviews are most likely guys who believe every message they receive is real. Sure there are fake profiles on AFF but it is not impossible to spot them. Just use your common sense! I've hooked up with some girls I met on AFF and CasualDating4u.com so I know how the game works. On the other hand I have used other sites as well to see the difference between good and bad sites. And AFF is one of the better sites.
I like AFF, It's a pretty nice site, id say its a good one to use for a while, long enough to give you a chance to get a good number of replies back but short enough that you leave after you've checked out all the real women in your area. I tend to use this for a few months and then switch to HookupHangout.com for a few months and then back again. Works for me. Im unemployed at the moment but when I have a job ill use both together and then ill see some serious action!
