When Ashley Madison started in 2001, there weren't many places adults could go for discreet dating.
Meeting someone at work or through friends is too risky when discretion is your number one concern.
Many turned to traditional online dating websites, but found it difficult to connect with people looking for a similar type of arrangement.
And so Ashley Madison was created as the first website that was open and honest about what you could find there: like-minded people looking for married dating.
Every day thousands of people join Ashley Madison to find discreet relationships of all kinds. But if you’re looking to add a bit more of an air of mystery, you can use our blur or mask tools.
