If you’ve been around the social dating and hookup scene for more than a couple days, you’ve DEFINITELY heard of AdultFriendFinder.com. This site is the granddaddy of all hookup sites. It’s the one and only original, and it’s been around since Bill Clinton was running for office.
The thing that makes AdultFriendFinder.com so different from its competition is that this site has STAYED, while all the other sites that popped up around the same time have vanished. It’s like they say-you die a Geocities, or you live long enough to see yourself become na Apple.
The reason AdultFriendFinder.com has stuck around for so long when other sites have failed is simple. It’s simply better than the competition.
So, what exactly is it that makes AdultFriendFinder.com so much better than all the sites that came after? Let’s check it out.
AdultFriendFinder.com is one of those websites that seems like it’s always been around-and that’s a great thing!
Since 1996, AdultFriendFinder.com has been hooking people up. While that might mean for a lot of sites that they’re outdated or no longer relevant, but AdultFriendFinder.com makes it a point to stay as updated and consistent with modern web design as possible. Much of that can be attributed to the fact that while it was always a common brand name, it didn’t always have a lot of people. In 2007, Penthouse (yes, THAT Penthouse) bought the website, and COMPLETELY revamped it for a modern Internet audience.
Because the site is still relatively new, there are some great modern features, as well as it being one of the best, most comprehensive hookup websites out there today.
Another thing that we love is the fact that there are just SO many women on AdultFriendFinder.com. There are just so many people on AdultFriendFinder.com, period.
At the last count, and according to the research on WebTrends, AdultFriendFinder.com has over 40 MILLION members.
To put that in perspective, there are only 360 million people in the U.S., period, and 250 million of those are adults. That means that about 16 percent of the U.S. adult population is registered as a member on AdultFriendFinder.com. That’s a HUGE amount! If you have at least 400 Facebook friends (as most people do), you probably know at least 64 members of AdultFriendFinder.com, just according to statistics.
Yeah, even the hot ones.
Even though we think of the kind of girls who go on hookup dating sites as the kind of girls you don’t necessarily want to hook up with, going on AdultFriendFinder.com will show you that’s wrong. There are some REALLY hot babes on here!
Our Results On AdultFriendFinder.com Over The Last 90 Days
During our time on AdultFriendFinder.com, we sent out 900 emails. That’s five guys, twice a day, for three months. We wanted to make SURE we were getting an accurate portrayal of the dating scene on this website, so we made sure to give it the same fair shake as others.
We got back a very impressive 656 responses!
For a site that’s been around for so long, we’d assumed that the site would be…well, sort of dead. But there weren’t nearly as many inactive profiles as we’d expected, which was a pretty big deal. We wound up getting laid 24 times during our time on AdultFriendFinder.com, which made us VERY happy.
First Emails That Worked Well on AdultFriendFinder.com
Here are some emails that worked great for us during our time on AdultFriendFinder.com.
Email 1: “Hi, Sara. To save time, let’s assume that I led with a terrible pick-up line, you got annoyed, and I gave you a heartfelt apology that somehow made up for it (maybe it’s the eyes, I hear I have great apology eyes). With that in mind, let’s start over before we begin, because I think from your profile that you’re a very cool person (with GREAT taste in music, wow) that I’d really like to hang out with.”
Email 2: “Hi, Kelly. I tried to scroll past your profile, but something about your eyes kept bringing me back. Sure enough, as soon as I clicked, I found out you’re probably the only person on this site who has a car cooler than mine. How long have you been working on her?”
How To Maximize Your AdultFriendFinder.com Experience
Waaaaay too many guys on this site try to go the super-confident hyper-masculine douchebag route, trying to get girls by impressing them.
For some reason, that doesn’t work on this site! It’s great on some sites (it worked very well for us on EstablishedMen.com), but not on AdultFriendFinder.com.
We found that it was much more likely to get a response if we were very laid-back, and the funnier, the better.
What We Liked About AdultFriendFinder.com
The great thing about this site being around forever is that it has a LOT of features above and beyond the simple facilitation of helping couples hook up. There are adult videos, a magazine, and all kinds of forums and chat rooms for you to hang out with other members whenever you want.
This is one of the most full-featured sites out there, and we’re just thrilled with the wide array of opportunities.
What We Didn’t Like About AdultFriendFinder.com
While it isn’t enough to totally kill the site for us, there ARE a lot of inactive profiles. We’d suspected there might be, but it was still a let-down. Fortunately, there aren’t too many.
We also weren’t totally fond of how many advertisements we got on the site. Sometimes it was fine, but others it seemed like there were too many buttons to click, and we weren’t sure we were going to make the right choice.
Is AdultFriendFinder.com a Legit Site For Hooking Up? The AdultFriendFinder.com Review Conclusion
Quite simply, AdultFriendFinder.com is a juggernaut. This is one of those sites that’s been around for two decades for GOOD REASON, and there’s no reason to think that it won’t stay around forever. This site has stood the test of time. However, we can’t give it the edge over SocialSex.com. As many cool women as we met here, there were just more there, and more quality.
