You’ve probably heard some things about AdultFriendFinder.
It’s been around since Clinton’s first term, so we’d be sort of weirded out if you hadn’t heard of it by now. This site claims the distinction of being the very first hookup site on the Internet, after it spun off from FriendFinder in 1996 (when people were talking about this hip new thing called eBay and were excited about a new group called the Spice Girls.
You might have heard a lot of people talking about how AdultFriendFinder is a great site, back a couple decades ago. Then again, you might have heard people ten years ago talking about how it’s outdated and no longer useful for hooking up.
However, what you might not have heard is that in 2007, AdultFriendFinder.com was purchased by Penthouse. They have poured MILLIONS into remaking this website into something awesome and culturally relevant—they’ve even released music videos for major artists through their platform during their rebranding efforts.
The good news is that this means the site is new, sexy, and very committed to hooking guys and girls up. The BETTER news is that AdultFriendFinder.com has decades of experience, and the biggest member base size of any hookup site on the Internet.
So, what’s kept this juggernaut around so long? Read on to find out.
The #3 Site For Meeting Women Online: AdultFriendFinder.com Review
We tried out AdultFriendFinder.com for our review site and were pleasantly surprised at how responsive it was. We’d spent quite a bit of time online looking to get lucky at this point, and were expecting more of the same, but probably a bit older, more outdated.
We were very startled at how good this site was.
Now, understand that we were coming from a place of low expectations. We weren’t thinking that AdultFriendFinder.com was going to be the place we got the most lucky—we were right, of course. No matter how good it was, AdultFriendFinder still can’t compare to our #1 pick, SocialSex.
However, the site was a lot better than we were expecting, and we DID get laid, quite a few times. It turns out, there’s something definitely to be said for experience. Hey, it’s why we’re not big fans of banging virgins, and it seems to work when applied to websites, too.
AdultFriendFinder.com isn’t terribly new (it’s older than some kids who are driving), but it continues to reinvent itself every year, becoming one of the most current sites no matter how many new imitations crop up while it’s busy hooking people up.
Our Results Using AdultFriendFinder.com: Why It Deserves The #3 Spot
We had an issue with AdultFriendFinder that we’ve never had with any other website we tried out: there were TOO MANY GIRLS to choose from when we were looking around!
At least, that was a problem at first. We did try to restrict ourselves to two emails each per day, but it was kind of difficult when there were so many hot girls we wanted to hook up with right away.
We did wind up sending out our regular 720 emails—and believe us, we could have sent out a lot more. Those were just the cream of the crop that we contacted.
Of those, we heard back from over 500 of the girls we contacted! It wasn’t quite as good a response rate as XXXLove orSocialSex, our top two websites for meeting women, but it wasn’t far behind, either.
Very few of them were scams.
We can’t say NONE of them were scams, but none of the scams were fake profiles that came from AdultFriendFinderm, at least. They were just a couple of women who were obviously out to get some money from us, but we spotted those and weeded them out easily. For more on spotting and avoiding scams on dating sites, check out our guide to the most common dating site scams and spams.
Of the girls that we emailed back and forth with, we wound up setting up dates with 49 of them, and actually had 45 dates! That’s a lot for one website over such a short period of time.
All in all, we were quite pleased with AdultFriendFinder.com as a way of finding dates. We’d happily use it in conjunction withSocialSex or XXXLove. Our preferred method of using these sites is to use several at once—check out our guide to using multiple dating sites at once.
What Worked Well On AdultFriendFinder.com: AdultFriendFinder.com Strategies For Maximum Wins
There’s one piece of advice that we can give you that works REALLY well on this website:
We don’t mean that you should play up the aggressive traits of your personality—play up the ones that feeds into the fantasy you’re trying to create. See the guide to setting up the best profile if you’re confused about what should go on that page.
What you need to do on AdultFriendFinder in order to maximize your chances of getting laid is make the first move, and make it big. This is not a site where you can go in with a little wink first, and maybe a chat if she responds to the wink, maybe an ice breaker or something if she’s not sure, or if you see her looking at your profile.
There are 40 million people on AdultFriendFinder.com. The women on this site don’t have time to waste, and you WILL find that girl you want to hook up with on a date with someone else if you don’t act quickly. Send an email as soon as you see a girl you like. If you need help thinking of what to say, check out our guide to the first email.
AdultFriendFinder.com Review: What We Don’t Love About AdultFriendFinder.com
There are a LOT of profiles left over on this site from years past, and it’s pretty obvious. Sometimes the filtering system gets messed up, and throws out a girl who hasn’t been online since we were eating Freedom Fries.
Our Conclusion On Using AdultFriendFinder.com
AdultFriendFinder is a fantastic website to go to if you want to meet women. There are a LOT of women there, and they’re eager to hook up FAST.
