Dating one person at a time is enough of a challenge for a lot of guys, let alone dating two people at once. Other than wondering: How do you find the time to date more than one person and still balance your work and personal life? The more intriguing question is: How are you able to get away with it?
Clearly, many men don’t, which the Ashley Madison data breach this summer reminded us after information about the “41,105,000 anonymous users” on the “Life is short. Have an affair” site became public. What’s even more revealing, after a look at the top 100 passwords used on the Ashley Madison site, most of the people must not have been too concerned about their privacy. The top three passwords were 123456, 12345, and password. If you have that much trouble remembering your password that you have to resort to using one of those options, you probably shouldn’t attempt juggling the multiple girls you’re dating. Or you’re just way over confident in your ability to hide your indiscretion.
“I don’t think I’ve ever heard of somebody who’s cheating ever feel they were going to get caught,” Dean Severson, creator and CEO of CheatingSupport.com, which serves as a counter to sites such as Ashley Madison, says. “Let’s face it, most affairs have nothing to do with love. Men and women who cheat are so desperate to get laid that they offer up personal information at some point during the affair. This personal info is a trail right back to your #1 girl.”
So, if you’re thinking about dating multiple women when you’re already in a committed relationship, we’re here to say: don’t do it. However, if you do decide to tempt fate, these are the ways you’ll most likely get caught.
