With the recent sad news in the UK about a young girl being lured to her death by a pedophile posing as a teenager on Facebook, we all need to know which dating sites are safe.
Adult Friend Finder or AFF for short is riskier. It is definitely not for the faint hearted. As soon as the site loads you will instantly be greeted with graphic photos representing what most members are looking for.
AFF is a site for open-minded people looking for NSA relationships (no strings attached). This may sound awful to most romantics who are not prudish but believe that sex should be between two people who love and trust each other.
Unconditional sex, like it or not, is a new phenomenon in today’s fast-paced society. These aren’t just lonely and horny men, it’s a popular craze for wealthy and successful careerists who don’t have time for a relationship but still have natural impulses.
This site allows you to almost choose your “perfect” sex partner. It’s a very different perspective and quite intimidating and certainly not for everyone.
From personal experience, two of the best relationships I’ve had have come from AFF, although this is not typical of the site. We met during the day and were dating, talked on the phone and texted a lot, we had built an emotional bond, but there were still strong sexual undertones.
Match.com, on the other hand, is a more “traditional” matchmaking site. You browse profiles and judge potential suitors not only on their photos, but also on their likes / dislikes, their personalities, and whether you can spot the humor in their writing. You can either “wink” for free or subscribe to send messages to potential matches.
The magic of Match.com comes when you send a wink to a member who catches your eye. The excitement when you receive a wink. Its school field stuff, but you never cultivate it. It’s an innocent and sweet way to date someone. You can tell after a few messages if the connection is purely attraction based or if it goes further. Sometimes messages dry up when you realize you don’t have anything in common, but when you click on it you can find yourself writing essay after essay. There is the dizzying excitement of checking your email to see if it has sent you a message.
In today’s fast-paced world, people find it increasingly difficult to find their “partner”. More and more people are turning to online dating as the stigma associated with it disappears as we become more familiar with social media online. It’s no longer the sad lonely nerd sitting at his computer trying to find a girlfriend; it is the lawyer, the doctor, the teacher, the students, the single parents and many others.
