Greatlovelookup.com: A Boon for Adulterers

08/05/2009 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

Greatlovelookup.com e-mailed me today, introducing their site as a "Discreet Dating Community For Married People, and for Single People that want to meet and date unhappy married people."

The website is in serious need of an editor. Among the many grammatical errors is that the description should read..."for single people who want to meet and date unhappy married people." And I suspect they mean "unhappily married people," rather than downers.

Is it possible this e-mail came from a vindictive Nigerian I'd ignored? Why was I targeted? Did my husband receive the same opportunity? Should I be concerned that he's been online all morning?

The options provided are:

Press here if you want to have an affair with a married woman or man
Press here if you're in a relationship and want to have an affair
Press here if you want to have an affair with a married person

Missing is the reason that would tempt me: "Press here if you're happily married, but looking to hook up with politicians in order to have a voice in the nation's health plan."

If any group appears to be flourishing without online assistance it's the sub-section of the population involved in adulterous relationships. Could it be that this website was generated by spouses looking to catch their mates? Or by Mark Sanford's spiritual advisor? (I'm aware that's a sentence fragment).
