I have used Ashley Madison off and on since 2005. I had not been on the site since ’06. I was in a setting where I was not looking for a man for a casual affair for many years. I created a new account a few months ago. Now, I just log on for entertainment.
For one thing, I live in an area where the pickings are not that great re: men if a woman is actually looking for a relationship. Even if a woman is younger and very pretty, it is still not so easy to find a quality man in this part of the USA. The men on Ashley Madison…please! There are too many single men who believe this is the cheapest way to get laid. Most of the men are demanding photos of women in all sorts of angles so they can get an “idea” of her but all I see if face shots of these fellows.
I am also a single woman but do not want the troubles of a conventional relationship. Yet, I do not want a single man because of the attitude of how they want multiple relationships which result in the risk of disease. I will be traveling later this year so I can change my location for that month out of town.
Even when living in a more densely populated area, it still was not easy to find a quality man. Many men feel they are truly the best thing around and believe that a woman is to put out on demand. Men, too, have fake profiles with the stock photos and the too-good-to-be-true descriptions of themselves.
I have really given up in this area.
