Adult Friend Finder is one of the largest and most popular dating sites on the net. After 25 years online, it promises to give you millions of hook-up opportunities. Because it is worldwide, your location plays an integral part, and once signed up, you can search to see who's nearby and hot to trot. The free service is limited, and only when you are a paying member can you really get into the details. As a dating site, it caters for just about everyone, and its main aim is to put like-minded folks together, whether that's for sex, flirting, cams or chat.
Read our guide on how to register and use Adult Friend Finder and have your questions answered.
The first thing you find at Adult Friend Finder is the registration form, and you need to complete that to move forward. It doesn't take long, but you must fill out all the boxes. After a couple of stages, you submit your registration, and receive a verification email within a minute. With that clicked, you can then explore further. Here’s how it works.
Make sure you complete all of the first box, else you will find an error after filling out the second, and will have to start again. This is what you are asked in the first box.
Once registered, you can enter the profile area beneath your username and fill out as much or as little as you like. Obviously, the more you put in, the more responses you will get, and your searches will be more accurate. Upload a profile photo, and you will get even more interest. Here is what you find in the drop-down beneath your Adult Friend Finder username.
Click to your profile page, and you have the option to add several details. These include ‘member since’ date, what you are looking for, date of birth, location etc. You can list your kinks, your compatibility details (i.e. what body type your preferred partner would have), bling (see below), and you can manage your top fans.
Adult Friend Finder has a thing called bling, which are small icons that show your personality. You can add these, or have them sent as gifts, and there is a bling/icon creator so you can get inventive. Like your profile pic, if you have a bling, you will likely get more responses.
Right now, Adult Friend Finder tells us it has 3,667,558 'connections.' Not all the profiles are real, though, and the site has been criticized for allowing bots and fake profiles (probably unwittingly). Sometimes you get a redirect to another site, and the girl or guy of your dreams is no longer a member, but their profile remains. It's fair to say, though, that new people are joining all the time. Along with profiles come some photos and videos, and although it's impossible to say exactly how many, the site claims to hold over 98 million photos.
Adult Friend Finder goes beyond dating and hooking up with its community area. There, you can join groups of like-minded people, read erotic stories and the magazine, and read other members’ blogs. You can also contribute, and much of what you see in the community area is free and required no upgrade.
Adult Friend Finder was probably the original hook-up site, and over its 25 + years, its interface has developed to be one of the most functional of all similar sites. Other members are presented in square thumbnails with basic details, and the main page shows you who's new, who is near you and who is a VIP member. Among the many interactive functions, you find a messaging service, profile creation, and places where you can add or view photos and videos. Here are all the details.
You have many search options, including:
Your search results are displayed in thumbnails, and you can change the layout. However, you can't see detailed profile pages or content until you have upgraded.
Looking along the top menu, you find the main areas of Adult Friend finder, and these have drop-down lists for further exploration.
Around all these interactive functions are various other nifty extras and links. The most important of these is your own information, as that is what will attract other members and bring you more content. Here’s what you can choose to have displayed:
Although registration is free, you only get the very basic service unless you take the Adult Friend Finder VIP membership. The best value membership is the 12-month gold at $14.95 per month, charged in one annual instalment of $179.40. Or, you can have a shorter-term recurring membership at $59.85 for three months or $27.95 for one month. They are all automatically recurring. Prices, currencies, and what packages are available may differ by country. Here’s how it all works.
Adult Friend Finder remains the most popular, free hook-up and chat site on the web, but it is not without its issues, and only the basics are free. To get the best out of the site, you will need to pay. However, the membership prices are fair, and the site has one of the most interactive and fun interfaces of all dating sites. Whether you're a guy looking for girls or guys, or a girl looking for guys or whatever you want, Adult Friend Finder is the place to go to check out who is near you. Its various functions make finding your perfect mate simple, but hooking that mate is up to you.
