Is the traditional affair over?

Hola. Hope you are well.

What has happened to the traditional affair? One that happens organically, maybe with a colleague at work, or a chance encounter with a stranger in a bar.

Not one conducted via a website like Ashley Madison; where as long as you have an email address and a credit card you can order an affair. Plus, the old way, meant that if your partner did find out you could always say, you didn’t mean it to happen. This may be harder to believe when you’ve signed up to a site that specialises in affairs.

Having said that, these days people date online, so why shouldn’t they conduct their affairs this way? In these more technological times it’s conceivable that the whole arc of your relationship could be played out online. You could for example, meet your partner online, meet your affairee (not sure that’s a word) online, sort your divorce online, sell the marital home online, arrange access to the kids online etc… etc…
