Start of University Leaves Parents Lost

gzvpgisn3vkt8ecjgk6h

As you wave your eldest child off into the world and out of the family home: a sea of emotions wash over you. Pride: that they are all grown up and off to conquer the world whilst recalling their first steps, anxiety: will they be okay without you? Can they cook a nutritionally rich meal? And finally, for many married couples: absolute panic as they look at each other for the first time in years and realise – it’s just them.

The love you feel for your children sucks you into a world where nothing matters quite as much as them, and certainly a Mother’s bond with a child is as beautifully unique as children themselves: nothing comes close. So now what? Who are we as couple? Are just a few of the questions married couples will silently spin around their heads as ‘empty nest’ alarm bells start to ring. After years of lavishing their love, attention, concern, and thoughts on their children, many wonder: can we reaffirm our own love and feel the highs of romance once again?

Intimacy is often the first element of a relationship to suffer upon the arrival of children, leaving the man feeling quietly unimportant and neglected while vying for what little attention his wife can summon, feeling exhausted yet ecstatically consumed by her new love. Fast-forward seventeen or so years, and the silent valley of rejection and resentment that has built over time, is simply for many, an unspoken immovable fact.

At llicitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest dating site for married people, this is a relationship dilemma we know well. With over 800,000 active members, and a nearly equal ratio of women to man: both sexes feel the same deflation and sense of loss as their children fly the nest. The dynamic has altered and both know it. Something is missing, something they can’t reignite together. For many ladies, they simply don’t feel the same passion or excitement for their husband’s as the years have passed. While many men find themselves struggling to fill a gap in their wife’s life, resulting in feeling an ineffective second choice and ultimately unwanted, physically and emotionally.

Rosie Freeman-Jones, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com adds: “Love is not the issue; our members love their partners and most would not dream of ending their marriage, but they cannot suppress a need to fill that void once the children leave home. They crave the romance, excitement and the attention they once gave each other, but as the dynamics alter over the years many cannot revive this successfully, and begin look outside their marriage. They are looking for a high, an all-consuming passion to make them feel alive, and whole again as adults.

Whether it takes meeting someone new to rediscover a part of themselves that has laid dormant in their marriage, or for the lucky ones – a rebirth of their love, the effect is positive for all. Feeling attractive, wanted, and important is something that we all need, whatever the circumstance – the need is universal. The self-esteem is instantly boosted, our energy returns and our relationships with others benefit when we feel good as individuals.”

IllicitEncounters.com’s ran a short survey in 2012, where over 50% of members said they could relate to, or had experienced empty nest syndrome, and of those 18% had cited it as one of the main reasons they joined the site. A year on, and with the same question asked: 63% are dealing with or have experienced empty nest panic, with 24% of those asked naming it as the sole reason they choose to become members.

IllcitEncounters.com offers a safe and discreet online dating service for those wishing to explore the possibilities of rediscovering romance, passion, and adventure. The site, now in its 10th year counts approximately 6% of the married population in the UK, with over 35,000 married people join up so far this autumn.

As London Fashion Week starts illicit dating site members aim to stay ahead of the trend

y1douaicil7ecwvijeac

With the fashion bug hitting London as the run up to Fashion Week gets underway, front row fashionistas are set to take centre stage at Somerset House in the latest couture, while the capital’s finest designers showcase their Spring/Summer 2014 collections. But be warned: if your other half takes more notice than usual of the latest trends and emerging designers, they could be looking to impress someone other than you. To coincide with London Fashion Week, leading married dating site IllicitEncounters.com, has conducted an extensive survey to their 800,000 UK members, asking about their fashion habits and favourite labels.

The female members of IllicitEncounters.com spend an average of £175 per month on designer clothing: a staggering £2,100 a year compared with figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), which shows the average spend at just £37.80 a month, and £463.60 a year for women. Men also splash out to impress their potential illicit trysts spending way above the ONS average of just £21.60 a month; men are likely to run up bills of over a £100 in order to stay on trend and up-to-date each month.

Not only is feeling good in your outfit an essential self-esteem booster when meeting someone new, personal grooming also plays a massive part in feeling your most attractive. Cosmetics, skincare, and hair styling are all part of the process to a new you, and the booming beauty industry is hot on the heels of fashion as a multi-billion pound business.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Mike Taylor commented: “When meeting a potential sexual partner, both women and men know that physical appearance affects your confidence. The clothes you wear make a massive difference to how you feel, certain colours lift our mood, while bold styles set out to impress. We have all had our confidence knocked by a bad hair day or the wrong pair of shoes, so it’s unsurprising that members on the site are investing more than ever in their appearance with new designer clothes, while making the effort to stay on trend and in vogue, as it can really boost ones confidence.

My advice when meeting a new lover is to wear colours that make you feel happy, cuts that are comfortable, and chose a smart/casual look to give you confidence without feeling over done – as there is nothing worse that regretting your choice of outfit on a date!”

Men and Women also revealed their top designer labels; Men chose Hugo Boss as their go to brand, followed by Paul Smith and Gant. While women’s top fashion houses where: Mulberry followed by Jaeger and Roberto Cavalli.

iPhone’s New Security Will Make It Number One For Illicit Daters

uqcybkhp9hwi0mvcp9pl

The new iPhone 5S announced today is surely set to raise some eyebrows with the introduction of “Touch ID” an embedded fingerprint sensor in the home button. Many will be questioning if it is more of a gimmick rather than a useful feature. But members of the UK’s leading married dating site, IllicitEncounters.com, seem to think it is a fantastic idea.

Whilst stats from the site show that over 35 per cent of all traffic is from Apple devices running iOS; it isn’t hard to see the benefits of the added security a fingerprint scanner will offer. A whopping 89 per cent of members who use an iPhone said they would look to upgrade if it is shown to have more security features.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Mike Taylor, said: “When conducting an extra-marital tryst, the weak link will always be the device that it being used to communicate with your lover. Desktop computers and browsers now having in-private modes, separate accounts and logins, but anyone can pick up your phone and with a swipe of their finger, have access to some of your most sensitive data and private messages. The inclusion of a fingerprint scanner will ensure that the only person who can assess your phone is you, and will not raise any suspicions with your partner.”

IllicitEncounters.com is also expecting a rise in the number of users logging into the site with iOS devices in the next 12 months, with Apple’s release of the iPhone 5c: a cheaper entry level of the iPhone which will be produced in a range of vivid colours – presenting an obvious rival to the low-cost handsets sold by Apple’s major competitors.

Back to school sends exhausted parents back to bed.

vqnehdaohcf4yy6agj5m

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading extra-marital dating site, has seen a massive 58% increase in new female members signing up in the first weeks of September. This continues the same trend as September 2013, during which the site saw an extra 10,000 married women joining up in weeks that coincided with the end of school holidays, and the start of a new school term.

As the summer holidays end and reality of ‘back work to blues’ set in, individuals are already looking for a fresh boost to relive the sun kissed joys experienced over the summer holidays. Trips to the beach, constant entertaining and not having to get the kids ready for school, seem a distant memory when faced with a working Monday morning again. The end of summer can mean that the house is now quiet during the day, with a buzz of activity missing. This can lead to people reflecting on their life, with it reported that one in 5 parents will consider divorce after the pressure of the 6 week summer holiday.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Mike Taylor said: “With the holidays over, many people are finding their houses eerily quiet, and with time on their hands – the faults in their relationships become scarily apparent by contrast; so they take the opportunity to join the site and look for a new illicit partner. Many of the new members often say they feel trapped in marriages that are romantically over, but they choose to stay together for one reason or another – particularly if there is a family unit at stake.”

The post holiday blues can also have an effect on office relationships; with a study revealing that affair seekers are more likely to start a office based romance in September than any other month, in search of some escape from the dull daily grind.
