  2. Love them or hate them, Ashley Madison has a well-known reputation for one of the first "dating" sites that focuses on helping people cheat. I've reviewed Ashley Madison myself, however readers have clamored for years, asking for a real-world review from a female that had used, and succeeded, in meeting at least one person from the site for an affair.
