Time to say goodbye very soon


I'm on the verge of deleting my account here. According to AdultFriendFinder, as of July 17th 2019, standard members can no longer initiate instant messenger conversations.

As a standard member, I have the options to either upgrade to Gold membership (enabling me to have unlimited chat requests) or use my points (which I had painstakingly accumulated) just to initiate a chat.

And I am one who's certainly not even going to consider upgrading my account to Gold because it is just ain't worth it.

Seems like the site owners do not really care about its members and only know about making profit.

It was a wonderful journey I had here on AdultFriendFinder. I've chatted and gotten acquainted with some really nice people. But I guess due to this new so-called regulation, I will bid goodbye very soon.

I will miss you guys.

The operators of the site have lost site of the where the money is, and not to pick, but it doesn't come from women, but from straight desperate men like every other "dating" site. Ok they might get some from gay men and couples, but really the right business plan is to attract and retain straight single women.

because as much as it might seems that all the straight men want to do is complain about how there are no real women on the site anymore that is actually the last thing that we want to do.

Not the Whole Truth but the truth that I can see.

It's all about business these days. And having the right strategy to make things work.

I'm not a businesswoman nor am I highly educated. But from what I can see, the way things are going on this site, it's going to lose quite a number of members. Which I think the site owners don't really care either.

The numbers have been in continual decline for many years so they are having to continually change things around in order to try and extract enough revenue from the sites in order to keep the lights on.

It sucks but you cannot argue against them trying to bring in revenue by charging for ways to contact other people - that's pretty much how the other mainstream dating sites work.

I always thought guys were having a difficult time and women just got their pick. If ladies are having a difficult time too it certainly stands to reason something needs to change in the model for customers. Of course the prospect of meeting a match is far more lucrative for a dating site than the actual hookup because if you're hooking up you're less inclined to use the site or pay more money.

True enough, i have moved on to another platform. Sadly. I did enjoy meeting people here but seems now its all abt making money.

I went from daily use to maybe once every other week. I definitely would not pay for such deceitfully poor service. Like if I want to "hotlist" somebody and I can't because my my Hotlist box has reached it's max. When I check there are a whole bunch of people on there that I did not Hotlist. AdultFriendFinder did it for me. Wasn't it nice of them to fill up my hotlist so I could not use it! Just like profile views. The site does that to. so if you see that someone checked out your profile, they probably didn't

    Quoting  :

there are so many changes to the site that happen daily that it's hard to keep up with them all. but have you tried to use the ICE BREAKER feature under your account settings?? i says it's for females and couples, i think you might have to have some type of pic on your profile though to qualify for the 'free' gold membership. if you try getting in on that, it may help extend you some more time to decide. i'm not trying to change your mind, just throwing out a suggestion/tip to consider while you're still here.

I've wondered too about the "better site" question. It would seem like there is a really good opportunity out there for someone to do a much better job then here to come up with something.

Putting together a site is hard. Marketing especially something that would be adult themed is hard. In some ways a f f makes it harder as given the less then great experience people have here, are they even going to be willing to try out another site?

Anyway best of luck to everyone no matter what you decide. Maybe we should all just coordinate via their blog system?

Silhouettes don't impress as very serious.
I know just the"F" is enough for some here.

Using more than all the road!

Have you considered opening a postbox here for private messages? The instructions are in my signature. Sure, it's not the same as chat but it's a way to receive messages from members and to respond to that message. At least you can stay in touch.

Need a way to message all members? Click here for instructions .

not familiar with postbox, but i have noticed a couple of other females bloggers actually using their blog to exchange messages and/or 'chat' with members too. that is another option just to consider.

I feel you on this. Few years back there was at least some form of functionality for standard members... We could communicate.... Albeit limitedly. But better than nothing.

Now it seems their taking that away as well.....if there's an alternative I'd be happy to switch overr
