The ability for people to engage in infidelity is at an all time high. With sites like Ashely Madison being found out to attract over 30 million users globally, it’s apparent that sexual gratification outside of the committed relationship isn’t a rarity.
Just a couple of days ago I was driving to town listening to a Seattle radio host plotting and scheming with listener on how they would catch their thought be to cheating partner on air for his escapades on Tinder.
Prior generations who weren’t afforded the app-lifestyle had to really invest a lot of time and energy into the seduction of a promiscuous fling outside of their committed relationship. But today we can be watching Netflix in the same room as our spouses, laying down on adjacent sofas while swiping right. Once you managed to navigate through all the pickings in your current location on Tinder but still haven’t found what you were looking for you can jump over to your POF app and scroll through even more temptation.
In the matter of five minutes your partner can go from having a disgruntled verbal argument with you to a spiteful match on Tinder that could possibly even lead to an intimate encounter that very same day. Gross, I know!
For those of you who have been even lingering with the idea of checking those apps out I would quickly suggest to you to never put yourself in harms way. And these apps are some of the biggest culprits of serenity. The seduction of marketing can bring crumble the best of us at times when we are at a place of weakness or pain.
Placing all interpersonal communication struggles and temptations aside you need to consider even more foundational genetic and chemical factors that could unconsciously influence you to make the massively destructive choice to cheat.
Don’t you dare consider using this science as a means to justify your actions when you are caught red-handed. “Honey I love you! It was me, it was my low vasopressin levels and the long alleles in my genetic code that made me do it”
