Avoiding Scams and Getting Good Results
Stephen asks: ",I am attempting to find a ‘real’ adult dating site. It seems all that I have come across do not have real/true information. as if it has been hyped to get you to join. Fledgling Match is one for sure. The people on there either do not exist or are trumped up. I sent the company an email to complain, but they didn’t reply. And when I clicked on a picture, the city and/or state switched to someplace nearby.
what a scam. There has to be a legitimate adult dating site out there. Help?",
Finding a Legitimate Dating Site
Welcome, Stephen, and thanks to my colleague, sexiness accomplished Cory Silverberg, for sending you my way. To response your question: it depends on what you mean by legitimate. Are you looking for an adult dating site that caters to adult encounters or casual lovemaking, that isn’t utter of scammers or fake profiles? If that’s the case, I’ll admit it’s pretty hard to find.
It’s pretty hard for any site these days (especially the big ones) to stop fake profiles and scammers from signing up, but I think I get what you’re after. There are a lot of adult dating sites that don’t have a lot of users, or use sneaky marketing tactics like the bait and switch you’re referring to. We’ve all seen them – the ads display a bevy of beautiful women in your area, but when you sign up, you realize that the women were just ads that were geographically targeted to your search preferences.
Even sites that may once have been good can go bad. They may be sold to a different possessor who uses different standards or may engage in some of those shady practices to boost membership and use. It is a ",buyer beware", market.
You simply have to observe your back on any online dating site. Always be wary of the signs of an internet dating scam.

Recommendations for Dating Sites
These recommendations are just for a snapshot in time. Good sites can go bad, and those I don’t recommend may improve. Of course, fresh sites will debut that may or may not be of merit.
My very first recommendation would be to attempt Lavalife’s Intimate Encounters section, you sign up with them and then determine which of the three sections you want to be a part of (Dating, Relationships or Intimate Encounters). You can use different treats in each section under the same account too, so no one will be any wiser if you want to advertise for one thing in one place without ruining your chances for something more should it come up.
After Lavalife, I only know of a few others that are worth mentioning, albeit I’ve yet to find one that’s truly ideal. My preferences would be Club Intimate, Fling, Adult Match Doctor, and Get It On,
As for adult dating sites that I don’t recommend, see my reviews for ShagPal and Adult Friend Finder.
