Infidelity Is Easier And More Addictive Than Ever – And This Is Why
You probably won't be too shocked...
Affairs have been going on since the dawn of time – but according to a new study, the internet is to blame for making cheating not only easier, but also more addictive than ever.
Psychology professors Andreas Vossler and Naomi Moller from the Open University conducted an anonymous survey of British people who have indulged in virtual infidelity, and found that a large number believed that technology – so Tinder, Facebook, dating sites… we could go on all day – has made cheating infinitely easier and even like ‘fast food’.
One subject wrote anonymously: ‘I tried to stop but neither of us could, it would start again and since (sic) so easy, with all the technology we carry around it was an amazingly comforting and sexy thing to have. With long working hours an online relationship is like fast food, ready when we are, naughty, cheap, very often eaten alone without the exhaustion of social niceties.’
Those surveyed also said that because the internet allows them to pretend to be someone else and portray false bravado and confidence, it makes the idea of cheating more palatable.
