Dating adult friend finder
On top of the countless mainstream sites, there are specialized ones to help you find someone with the same religion, interests and sexual preferences -- whether you're seeking a friendly relationship, life partner or a one-night stand.
There are serious pitfalls to avoid, of course: dodgy sites, "catfishing" and, worst of all, online predators.
People who have used the casual dating site Adult Friend Finder may have some damage control to do, after a hacker broke into the site and spilled the beans on millions of profiles there.
The site, which claims 64 million members, enables people to outline their sexual fantasies and preferences and then tries to match them with profiles with similar interests.
Eventually that site and others joined the internet, and today, dating sites in the US draw nearly 30 million unique visitors per month.
Some of the profile information indicated that some users are government employees, and used their government-supplied email address to register -- which is against the policies of some agencies.The stolen data includes 20 years of customer email addresses and passwords, according to Leaked Source.com, an anonymously run website that sells access to stolen records.
