It only takes a moment
It’s all too easy to get caught up in the routine. We count down the hours instead of enjoying our time and we long for something more, but in the end, we are left with the mundane, boring, everyday activities that make up our lives.
Once in a while, something special happens. A fleeting glance, an accidental touch, a returned smile: these moments show us a glimpse of something different, something more. We think about them and what they could mean for us, the path not taken and the life not lived.
But what if you could make those moments happen yourself? Feel the butterflies, experience the desire, and know what it is not to just live but to really come alive? Ashley Madison is the place to start your journey, to find your moment.

The first online dating site of its kind
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. As a place free of judgment, Ashley Madison revolves around the idea that consenting adults should be able to do whatever they want in private. What began over a decade ago soon grew to be the international leader in the affair dating space. Originally designed specifically for married men and women looking to have extramarital affairs in the most discreet way possible, it has since evolved to be so much more.
More than an affair site
Ashley Madison today is about so much more than infidelity. In fact, a large number of our millions of members around the globe are singles drawn to the site because they want the kind of discretion Ashley Madison has been synonymous with for over a decade. Many members are in fulfilling relationships and need a safe place to explore polyamory together. Others still are looking for same-s6x relationships but want to keep it separate from their personal and professional networks. Of course, there are still men and women seeking an affair on Ashley Madison, but we don’t let that define us and neither should you. Ashley Madison is the best place to find real, discreet relationships with open-minded adults.
