OK, I have a real problem with this too.
There is another online dating service that people can join. A dating service for married people who want to discretely “date” other people. Their slogan? Life is short. Have an affair.
I know that people have affairs. But they shouldn’t. Isn’t this public promotion of seedy behavior going to far?
This site has apparently been profiled on Fox News, 20/20, the Ellen DeGeneres show, etc. A public spotlight on this stupid site, even one that is protesting it, only draws more attention and publicity to it. People don’t need help to have an affair. It’s bad enough that people often let themselves fall into one. Now, people who are just a bit unhappy in their own relationship, or who are simply curious, can have some one do the legwork to help them make this adulterous choice.
Rich made a really good point regarding the Part-Time Swinger post below. I’m paraphrasing, but basically: Go ahead and live your alternative lifestyle. Whatever. But when you publicly flaunt that alternative lifestyle, you can expect to be judged.
And I’m judging. It’s wrong. It’s selfish. It’s immoral. End of story.
