Transcript:How to Use Adult Friend Finder

Hi I'm Nick Jaynes for About.com and this is how to use Adult Friend Finder. With the easy access to Internet just about everywhere you go, our lives are changing. You can buy groceries online, book a flight, buy a car, find a date, or even find someone for a sexual encounter.

What Is Adult Friend Finder?

The best site for finding an encounter of this type is called Adult Friend Finder. It's sort of like a dating site geared toward sex. On it you can upload a pic, give information about yourself, and search other users nearby. Adult friend finder costs anywhere from $10-$39 per month for a subscription, depending on which features you would like and how long you sign up for. The longer your contract, the less you pay per month.

Carefully Choose a Photo for Your Adult Friend Finder Profile

But you'll want to be careful about what you put up online. For better or worse, you never know who is out there and who will see your profile. For pictures, you'll get more results if you show your face. The site is all about attraction. And verifying you've got a good-looking mug is important for people. But this can be risky. You could attract some unwanted attention from some undesirable people if you do show your face. Heck, even someone you know might see you on there, which could be potentially embarrassing. Whether to show your face or not is up to you.

Create a Descriptive Profile for Adult Friend Finder

What you should definitely do, however, is be descriptive in what you want and don't want in your profile. Leaving your profile rather vague won't help you or anyone else who's reading your profile. Being descriptive will weed out the people or types of encounters you're not interested in.

Adult Friend Finder has a search option that allows you to look for either members currently online, ones near by to you, or new to the site. From there you can limit your search results by age and what kind of encounter or relationship they're looking for.

Tips for Using Adult Friend Finder

Smartly, Adult Friend Finder has given you the option to block and flag users, if you need. Also you can send back blanket email responses to those emails you don't wish to send a personalized response to. Just like everything on the web, use caution and also utilize your best judgment. If you use common sense, you should have a good time.
