IllicitEncounters.com the largest married dating site in the UK has revealed that 6% of their members are in fact single and not married or attached. With statistics released this week that report 42% of Tinder users are married – it seems extra-marital affairs sites are more relevant now than ever.
The 6% of members who are single admit so openly too, many prefer a relationship with someone that is attached – not wanting a full-time relationship but rather a part-time one where there is no confusion about their intentions. Dating a married man or woman can be more convenient for someone who is single and simply doesn’t want the emotional stress that comes with a conventional relationship.
Tinder advertises itself as a dating App that allows you to anonymously swipe members you like. But with features such as connecting your Instagram account or seeing their Facebook photos makes this App less than discrete. Now that stats reveal that almost half of it’s members are in a relationship this can be very misleading for the genuine Singles who have signed up to the site.
With an extra-marital dating site like IllicitEncounters.com what you see is what you get – the majority of members are married and admit so openly. The discretion is assured and allows married members to seek others in the same situation as themselves and not rock any boats within their marriage.
Susan, 41 year old single member on IllicitEncounters.com said ‘I’ve been down the route of what people call ‘normal’ dating, and it just isn’t for me. I do have a partner who is married and I wouldn’t want it any other way. We are very much in love and whenever we do see each other there is an incredible connection between the two of us – but I think I would shoot myself if I needed to spend all of my free time with him. I just don’t think men and women should live together, I like my own space and I like to invite him to join me from time to time. I respect he has a family to go home to, his wife – his life I say. I love my freedom, I am fiercely independent and enjoy my own space, that is why having a boyfriend who is married is very convenient for me.’
Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Claire Page said “We’ve all heard Tinder horror stories. There are countless sites that are dedicated to naming and shaming Tinder-weirdos, and many people sign up to the app then leave fairly quickly because of the strange communication they have received. As far as dating platforms go – Tinder is regarded as the one for ‘hook-ups’. Those members that are in a relationship are heading down a dangerous path as it will be hard to cover their tracks, not least because the App is installed on your device and phone probably in reach of a significant other.
|Top 10 Reasons to Date a Married Man|
|1.||No commitments. You can meet them as and when you agree upon, and you don’t have to feel bad about doing what you want when you want, or who you want.|
|2.||Married men are more honest. As you are not their primary relationship they will share more about their feelings because between the two of you – there is nothing to hide.|
|3.||A married man will give you more attention. They will shower you with affection because this is what they are normally missing from their married life.|
|4.||Married men put in more effort. The new found spark will revive them and that honeymoon period you so often see when you first enter a relationship is ever-present.|
|5.||You will never need to compromise your own life. Don’t have time to see him? That’s perfectly fine. Never will you need to cancel on an event, or fear seeing a friend because you don’t want to upset your partner – the married man will understand you have your own life to lead.|
|6.||No bunny boilers. Jealousy is a thing of the past, no need to worry about the green-eyed monster; you have an agreement that you are sharing each other.|
|7.||No emotional baggage. Their problems are their problems; you don’t need to take them home with you. When you enter a relationship you’re normally faced with that person’s baggage – but a married man’s suitcase don’t belong to you.|
|8.||You can leave him. Once you’ve fulfilled your own needs or desires, you have no obligation to remain in the relationship. You want out? There’s no need to draw up a list of pros and cons, you can simply walk away.|
|9.||It’s a secret. An illicit Romeo and Juliet. There’s just something saucy about it being just between the two of you, many people fantasize about a secret love affair.|
|10.||Incredible sex life. Married men are better in bed, they may be in a sexless marriage so they will try extra hard to please you in the bedroom.|
