The idea is presumably to safeguard people from searching for their own spouses on the site - though how a husband would explain to his errant wife how he came to stumble across her picture on a website for adulterers, I don't know.
In order to fit in with the general ethos of the website I have invented a wife.
At 24 years old, single and raising a 2-year-old son on her own, Sue has been playing the game for three years now and has been burned several times.
There was the jail inmate she said somehow messaged her, asking her for some commissary cash. Says he prefers women that are younger than him," Sue said.
One woman sends me a message heavily laden with sexual innuendo and I come to regard her as the mistress of the single entendre. Another woman's first contact with me included a plan for a day out together, including visits to art galleries, a stroll round a park and then "a few hours under the duvet". I'm later propositioned by someone who tells me she has an hourglass figure.
Her photograph reveals that the hour has stretched to 90 minutes.
An app that promises to protect you from registered sex offenders and criminals. You don't know who was the happy hour, who was the dinner and now you are the dessert," Spira said. As for Sue, she's been on Gatsby for three weeks now -- with, she said, "zero drama." "It makes me feel really comfortable," Sue said.
I register, and enter the murky world of two-timing technology, taking note of the warning on the site: "Not all affairs have a positive effect on a marriage." What a masterpiece of understatement."My preference is for a man who is much younger than me with rugged features," says one. This is a way of paying someone a compliment without typing out the words. And over the course of a week I get almost 100 replies, messages and propositions.Postings such as: "I want a man who can look after me and knows how to treat a woman. I'm surprised and unsettled by the forward tone of some of the material. Determined to avoid the connotations, I reply: "The Beatles." I never hear from her again.I'm already starting to feel like I've had enough of this experiment.But if I'm going to find out what really makes these women tick, I need to leave the safety of the virtual world and see them for myself. I arrange to meet a 41-year-old mother of two who misses "romance and flirting", in a cafe in two days' time.And there's the time she was catfished by a 60-year-old man, passing himself off as his 25-year-old son. "I'm like, ' This is not happening.'" May 10, 2017, Aubrey, Texas.Four men using the dating app Grindr are indicted on hate crime charges for luring gay men via the dating app, and then robbing and beating them. Jarrod Roberts is charged with stalking two different women he met through the dating app Tinder.Our relationship, I note, has suffered because we don't spend enough time together (not surprising really, since she doesn't exist).After a quick search, I get the measure of the women on the site.And all of them are looking for an opportunity to betray their spouses. But I wanted to find out what sort of woman uses such a site.So I paid £119 for a month's membership, giving me an entre to thousands of faithless females.
