I found this on my homepage when I logged on today, and I honestly didn't like the content of it. I just wanted to present the article to the ATS
MSNBC article, cheating websites
Since the launch of the Canada-based Ashley Madison website in 2002, which created a sensation with its seductive slogan "Life is short, have
an affair," the numbers turning to online infidelity have soared.
I just broke up with my girlfriend of almost 4 years because of cheating on her part. It happened a year prior and I thought I could overlook it. I
simply couldn't. I did bad things too, mostly because of it. I don't condone what I did, but I did it for a reason. It was a reaction to her
Its something I would have never done to her, I had the chance before and didn't. The funny thing is she thought I was after her incident.
I could not think about it at times, but I never forgot it. It ruined our relationship.
"My guess, however, is that it has because there are many people who have a yen for sex outside their relationship but wouldn't have the
slightest idea about how to do it or do it safely," Schwartz added
This is one of the main parts that really gets me. They think they are doing it safely because its over the web. I don't think cheating can be done
safely. You never know what another persons capable of when pushed to this extreme. If they find out, have you just ruined your family? Or worse, have
you provoked someone to commit a serious crime, assault/domestic violence/murder. The consequences of such a thing are huge.
It is the worst thing most people could imagine happening (in their personal life) short of their significant others death or their own.
I just find it crazy that people do it in such a manner that it's almost normal to them. They shop for an affair like I shop for clothes on amazon.
Just wanted the community to weigh in on it and be aware such things exist. Sorry if its in the wrong forum.

I'm with you on this. A lot of relationships have suffered and ended since the advent of 'online' sites like that.
Still, it comes down to one's own integrity really, doesn't it?
You can walk into an orgy in progress, it doesn't mean you have to participate in it. You can walk out at any time.
It is the bombardment of messages like this, that seem like an undermining of faithfulness and monogamy on purpose.
It has become a throw away society.
I am a firm believer that 'cheating' starts in the mind, before it ever becomes actual physical cheating. If you are in a partnership, why the hell
are you on sites that consist of meeting people anyway?
It doesn't make sense to me.
I don't know why people have come to the conclusion now days, that sex with a partner must become boring after a time, and therefore seek it outside
of their partnership. It most certainly does not have to become boring. In fact, who knows 'you' better than the one who has already learned you who
I'm sick of Ashley Madison's tuckus to be honest. I'm sick of seeing her bent over ads in my face. Sick of what she stands for.
BS. Safely is... don't cheat. Why is it hard? I don't understand why it's so hard to comprehend. Work out all your perversions and kinky fantasies
with your partner. I think most people would be happy to go along with whatever that may be.
Or maybe I'm just a little out of touch.
