No membership fee sex chat
But is this because its so easy to sign up - with no profile needed other than answering a few questions - or is it because most of its users are fake?Read on to find out."There are many single people on Ashley Madison that wish to meet attached people for various reasons.
What was different (and a bit disturbing) was that I was presented with six "specially selected" members in my area after having signed up - but none of the members could be found again in my town after I chose to skip sending them a wink. I tried to find this information both by searching the internet, searching Ashley Madison and by hanging out on the site for a few hours to see if anyone instant messaged me. Perhaps one of you has had more experience with the site and knows the answer to this question, but in my case, I honestly don't know.Separate from the unusual nature of the site - which promotes adultery, cheating and/or deceit between long-term partners - Ashley Madison also offers several very unique features and benefits: The most interesting of the bunch is the "Affair Guarantee", where users can apply to get a refund for their three-month subscription (1000 credits, which is $249 CDN/$199 USD) if they fulfill a long list of criteria, including: If after the three months the user still hasn't met someone in person to have an affair, the user can then apply to get their $249 USD plus taxes refunded to them, but "requests must be made within 30 days of Program expiration."Anyone can sign up for free, but it'll take buying some credits to really do anything with the site.$49 CDN gets you the Introductory Package with 100 credits, $149 CDN earns 500 credits and Elite status, and $249 CDN for 1000 credits is the Affair Guarantee Package.Most of the matches lived much farther from me than I wanted and most were much older than me... I couldn't see photos and I couldn't search on my own.But..weekend is a "free communication weekend" so I wanted to take advantage of it and picked the one guy who (at least based on profile) looked closest to a match. "I searched all over for some special promotional code that would let me communicate and finally figured out that the only "free communication" I'm able to do is send canned flirts and "guided communication questions." So I sent Dave a free, "Looks like we have a lot in common.In fact, the ONLY thing I could do was Decline his email (unless, of course, I wanted to pay $50 and join e Harmony.) And there was no way to even let him know that I was declining his email because I wasn't a paying member! Someone took the trouble to write me an email after I suggest "let's chat" and I have no option but to Decline and I can't even let him know why!
I got pretty upset about this and called e Harmony Customer Service, but they said there was nothing they could do. Well, their "Free Communication Weekend" is absolutely NOT Free Communication! We can't email people or even read or reply to people that email us.
I wasn't able to test all of the features, and I didn't talk to a lot of people who had success with the site, so as always with dating sites, buyer beware. One more thing that, yes, I've left until the end.
In late 2015, Ashley Madison's database was hacked and their membership lists shared.
As well, people showed up in my search results that were well outside my 'within 20-mile The layout and feel is different than any dating site I've encountered, and it lends itself to chatting as well as looking at other profiles at the same time. I was able to speak with a few members, however, to ask them if they were legit, and of the few I spoke with, all were real people who were genuinely looking for a hookup or something casual and low-key.
All members have the option of posting photos, but for obvious reasons most pages you'll encounter will have a badge in place of a photo that says, "please respect my discretionary requirements". One gentleman told me that he'd had great luck using the system to find partners while two others told me they hadn't heard a word from anyone other than me.
If someone suggests you go to direct communication, you will have no ability to let him/her know that you aren't able to do that. For a service that's promoting relationships and communication, I'd say their advertisements are very misleading.
