After starting and successfully selling the Internet’s first online personals site, WebPersonals.com, Andrew founded FriendFinder in 1996 which has grown to become the world’s largest online personals network. He served as CEO until December 2007 and again throughout 2014. He also founded Focalink Communications/AdKnowledge, the first company to centralize Internet banner advertising, Medley.com Ad Agency, one of the largest online affiliate networks, and W3, the first commercial website personalization software company. He received his Ph.D. in Engineering Design from Stanford University.
In 1994, Andrew Conru created the first online dating site, WebPersonals. After selling that site in 1995, he launched FriendFinder.com, an early social networking site, in 1996. Days after the site went live, Conru found that people were posting naked pictures of themselves and seeking partners for adult-oriented activities. As a result, Conru started Adult FriendFinder, which he described as "a release valve". FriendFinder has since established other niche dating sites, including Senior FriendFinder, Amigos.com, BigChurch.com, and Alt.com.

"I've heard great stories from friends about dating and meeting people online, but didn't believe in online dating… this was until I met David. He didn't expect much from dating sites either but things completely changed when we met. Naturally, we got to know one another at a deeper level and discovered how perfect we were together. David is now my husband to be and we are now planning our wedding. I’ve heard about many successful relationships starting from online dating and wish I would’ve joined Asia Friendfinder earlier. Thanks to Asia Friendfinder, I’ve found my true love and look forward to a life time of happiness."
