    I would strongly recommend you stay clear of this site. Not only is it very hard to connect with others, the administration themselves are not honourable. I have been a member of Ashley Madison for a few years, and have had zero success. AM will tell you that it's my fault, naturally, but it really is a scam. I question how many members are real. Bottom line is, I decided to leave. In the process, I am sure my account got hacked, and I ended up buying over $100 for credits I did not want. I went back to AM, and requested a refund. I was elated when their first response stated "We would be happy to refund your most recent purchase, but we would like to consider.....". I emailed back, thanked them, and said I wanted the option of the refund. The next email from them stated I did not read the email correctly, and they have a policy of no refunds. So, they were not going to honour their email. Now, I am fighting trying to get them to honour their offer to refund. Bottom line is, the site is ineffective at meeting others, and the organization itself is not sticking to offers through a customer service rep. I would stay clear of this organization at all possible costs....they purely want your money. Don't fall for it.

    Replied to imaginative @imaginative.. I have had pretty good success on AM. I've only been on since the summer but I've met a great woman and stopped looking, even though I still have credits. I'm married and she's in a long-distance relationship. Since I work far from home, well, nuff said. There are some young, immature, single women on AM that are looking for the perfect "Hollyweird movie" husband, but that's their problem for joining the wrong site.

    But other than those annoying princesses contacting me and whining about "are there any good men left," the site works. AM doesn't hook you up with people, they just provide a safe forum for getting to know someone without an awkward first meeting. I personally think it's a great way to avoid wasting countless, precious evenings on liars who are looking for a free meal. There are psychos and stalkers of both genders, so it also weeds them out. And yes, I said "both genders" because God only made two of them, liberals and unethical surgeons made all the rest. That's another good thing about AM, over other dating sites, the only gender selections when creating an account are man or woman.

    But anyway, I advise anyone who is looking for extramarital sex with a like-minded individual to join. The keys to success are to post plenty of tasteful, yet somewhat revealing, everyday-type pics. Also, keep the OMFG freaky pics (yes, everyone should have some) posted in your private showcase that only you can give access to. Be brutally honest, and lengthy, in your profile comments. Talk about what you like & want, don't just check AM's stupid blocks. For example, I said that I am turned on by women who have a great personality, positive attitude in life, can speak intelligently about current events, have a flat stomach, are uninhibited in bed, and keep their intimate areas clean shaven. I made it clear that I don't want a supermodel princess or a woman that needs to spend everyday in the gym, or a salad nibbler. Looks don't matter.

    But on a side note to the ladies out there (especially the neurotic, manipulative, American women), just get over yourselves and have some fun, before the combination of gravity & mirrors puts you on a prescription of anti-depressants and white wine. And for crying out loud, turn off the reality TV shows and get some exercise. American men cannot stand a lump that is addicted to the Kardashians & Jersey Shore, yet has no time to keep her belly flat!!

    I am a 47 year old Female. I have been off & on AM since Spring 2010 and have met several men for coffee/lunch. Two have progressed to a great FWB situation. I will say that there are many desperate men on there. And many don't take the time to be attractive to the women. Their profiles tell us nothing about what they are looking for - only check the given boxes. Many men have old or unattractive pictures. Take some time...

    Replied to Q @Q Hi Q, yes I couldn't agree with you more, regarding your July 27th comments. See my last comments. I'm slightly younger than you but the woman I met, while working here in Hawaii, is your age. Many women have commented to me on AM that they are impressed at how confident I am with what I want and how I've so openly described myself, including public pics. And the private pics... ummm... those have gotten extremely positive reviews. :)

    But the bottom line IS to take the time to sell yourself, while being 100% HONEST. I gloss over female profiles that don't have a pic (and a face pic is not necessary, y'know the whole discreet thing) or just check the blocks. I love the thrill of chasing and catching a woman, but I at least need to know we're playing in the same ballpark; i.e., have some of the same likes & dislikes.

    But aside from the "chase" there are so many sex-starved married women on AM that don't want Brad Pitt. They are somewhere in the average looking range and want insanely uninhibited sex with average looking men. They don't want to leave their husbands nor to have some clingy guy falling in love with them. So WAKE UP guys! Start communicating more and selling yourselves. The site works and I have fun there. Go after them and remember - the gorgeous women only get you into trouble and fights... ;)

    And again, great comments Q!

    Yeah, real classy. You are denying your partner's the right to information they have a right to know, whether it's lying by omission or flat out lying. In business we call that fraud and we sue. In the bedroom, we say, oh, boys will be boys?

    Replied to katherinel @katherine l. No, girls being girls. It's girls the guys are screwing. Talk about fraud? Ha, include women at the top of the list. One minute they are innocent girls that never do anything bad, the next they're getting every hole plugged by random strangers.

    I can tell you that being new to this site is daunting and quite depressing. The two interests I got were from a woman hustling a live cam and another for soliciting a different adult site. The site will not show you when people leave a chat session so other than you paying money over and over again, the person you sent the message is gone and not even logged in!
    So yes it does prey on your loneliness and if you're a guy, good luck. I personally feel there's more employees hulking around the site to solicit credits so buyer be aware. You can sucked in and get pissed off real quick. Like the man said, how many women just come up to you out of the blue? The answer will be same here...Good luck my friend. I will be off when my credits run out.

    I found that Ashley Madison is inundated with posers, fakes, wannabes, and possibly a few employees. Of course there are a few real women on the site who actually want to experience a thrill outside of their marriage, or just want someone to make them feel pretty. For those people, Craigs List would be more beneficial. For all of the single women on Ashley Madison trying to find a guy; I suggest Match.com. Ashley Madison is very expensive to use and preys on human vulnerabilities and susceptibilities to secure the next purchase of credits. Whether playing alone, or with my wife, we have found that AFF is far more cost effective, the people on AFF are real, the comments from their encounters are also real, not just nebulous numbers at the bottom of a profile. My recommendation - take your play and money somewhere else.

    Replied to Rex @Rex My experience with AM was poor but expensive. It almost seemed like you get a lot of response about the time your credits run out. This way it seems to suck you into buying more. I actually have ten times better luck just going to bars. Sorry, I say save your money. You can buy a lot of drinks for the cost of this site.

    I am in a sexless marriage, but besides that it's good. I joined AM because I crave sex and my husband is no longer interested in having sex with me. What else can I do? If I am not getting it at home! I am not dead yet. Sex is healthy. A great way to relieve stress, etc. All my friends are still having sex and brag about it. This bothers me, as I feel like there is something wrong with us as a married couple. I don't want to die not ever having sex again. It's in all the movie's I watch. It seems everyone around me is having sex, but me. So I am not apologizing for doing something to make me feel good, when my husband won't help me in that way. It's because of men and women like that, who hold sex back that we both (men and women) have to resort to cheating.

    Replied to Louise_3269 @Louise Are you kidding? There is no justification whatsoever for cheating in a marriage. Why stay married? If you have a sexless marriage, there is a deeper underlying problem. Do something positive for you both and seek out counseling to get to the bottom of what's really wrong.

    This website is unbelievable. I didn't believe a friend when she told me about it, but yes Virgina, it exists. Why be married if cheating is Ok? Doesn't anyone respect one another as human beings at the very least, or are we all just objects to use and lie to at a whim?

    Replied to Luci @Luci Luci, please stop judging people and grow up. You personify the typical, nut-crushing, American woman. Your comment regarding not being married if it's okay to cheat is comical. That's because you American women use sex and the means of landing your husband and then you turn it into a control tool for manipulating your husband. You're scared to death that if your husband ever got tired of his every-three-month handjob, his twice-a-decade blowjob, or his four-times-a-year intercourse (which probably entails you putting a towel on the bed and flopping on it on your back & waiting for him to do all the work with no encouragement or participation from you), then he'd realize he doesn't need you anymore. If you typical American women could ever realize that American men are the most giving, caring, willing to please you in bed people in the world, then you'd have happier marriages. Instead, you teach your daughters to start planning their weddings at six years old, believing in "the perfect man" from a Disney fairytale, knowing they're going to be as miserable as you one day. In reality, your little girls are going to follow your failed marriage model, which is teasing and manipulating men until you see the first signs of crows feet in the mirror, then finally picking out the best stud in the stable to geld. After "your ring" is in place, you plan to change the things you don't like about him and chase away all of his true friends (you are not that friend) through sexual manipulation.

    But Luci, sleep uneasily tonight in the knowledge there are tens of thousands of Thai, Filipina, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, and other Eastern European women who would be supermodels in the US, willing (and trying) to sleep with your husband at every turn. So the internet, coffee shops, airports, and tons of other places are where these foreign angels are looking for your husband. And the truth is, us American men tell you ball-busting harpies that we're not attracted to foreign women, especially Asian women, because we don't want to hear your mouths any more than we have to. The truth is that EVERY American man has a true softspot for Asian women. It's only a matter of time...
