Portrait of an adulterer: secret shots of 50 married men I met on dating websites
But what is interesting is the sheer number of users. Who knew so many unhappily married people overwhelmingly, men were actively looking for an affair on this site alone? What sort of men are they, and how do they feel about their deceit? Natasha Caruana, a photographic artist, has had a unique insight. Her project, The Married Man, which has just been released as a book, comprises photographs of 54 men she met on affair websites over the course of a year. They are deliberately dark and grainy, which adds to the atmosphere of secrecy and deceit. The seediness of the encounters is reflected in the dirty beer glasses and grubby tabletops of pubs and cafes. All you glimpse of the men is a disembodied arm in a blue office shirt, the sleeve of a dark suit, or some questionable knitwear.
While I personally have not done this, I do get a fresh hair cut, put on some semi-dressy clothes, and get all dolled up and waste time in a mall, small restaurant, or similar public place. I do it to get looks from women. Same rough idea as your question. But in short, men do this for attention. Are dating sites even real? Is everyone a fucking robot anymore?
What kind of married man strays, and more importantly, why? Our reporter met three men through an adultery website to find out. To find out journalist Helen Croydon, 35, checked out maritalaffair. Big bed. I keep in shape and have clean teeth! Do I know these men inviting me to bed?
7 Dating Sites For Married People (Seriously)
But there's a darker flip side to online dating sites and popular apps like Tinder and Bumble — specifically, "married dating" sites, where cheating spouses-to-be can search for a willing partner in infidelity on the down-low. Husbands and wives may vow to be there for each other, forsaking all others through sickness and health, until death do them part, but statistics show married men and women alike are cheating more frequently now than ever before. And naturally, online dating platforms are well aware of this fact. While we can't blame the online dating sites for creating this dilemma, the fact that there's actually a decent market for dating sites dedicated to married people wanting to have affairs baffles me a little. Why even get married if you're just going to be cruising around the dark online world of married dating sites?
