The Modern Cheater: In search of 'The Grand Affair'...A primer.
I was in Paris and, while drinking wine with a friend, I casually asked: So, how’s the dating scene here in France?... My friend explained that so many people worked too many hours and had little time for fun, and even less time for sex and so they went in search of intimacy online.
It was just about two years ago when I first heard the word ‘Gleeden.' I was in Paris and, while drinking wine with a friend, I casually asked: So, how’s the dating scene here in France? The answer? Not so magnifique. My friend explained that so many people worked too many hours and had little time for fun, and even less time for sex and so they went in search of intimacy online.
Gleeden. It rolls off the tongue, no?
As soon as I returned to New York I went in search of this site, which my friend made sure to tell me was very female-friendly. I really had no idea what he meant, but I was definitely going to find out.
What I found was a site that billed itself as ‘The premier international dating website for married people’ and boasted a membership of over a million users. I remember thinking: Oh, another AshleyMadison.com.
Boy, was I wrong.
The first difference is that Gleeden was designed with women in mind. In fact, the two French brothers who started the site say they did it in response to complaints from women they knew who shared their stories about marital issues and infidelities.
When you take a quick peek at the homepage, you can already see a bit more elegance, a little mystérieux, almost from the first image that hits you. This isn’t a site that will knock you over the head with graphic images – no, the site seems to say that you will find women here, not girls. Women who know exactly what they want in an affair and are not intimidated by the conventional wisdom that says good girls wait to get what they deserve.
Wait a minute, did I just type the word ‘affairs’? Why, yes I did, indeed.
Gleeden is geared towards people in relationships. They assure users that their privacy will be protected and discretion shows up as the main word on almost every page. Anyone having an affair, or contemplating one, can sure get behind a site that says: We’re here to help you protect yourself.
To be honest, we checked out the site for you just because we care about your needs almost as though they are our own. TMC’s recommendation? Women, it’s a no-brainer. The site is free for you to use, unlike some of the other dating sites you might be contemplating. Men? It’s still a no-brainer. The size of its international client-base would be enough to make us curious, but the easy to use options make Gleeden one of those places you should at least check out – if only for research, you know?
With the U.S. launch officially in full-swing, no pun intended, it will be interesting to watch as more and more people you know begin to pretend that they’ve never heard of Gleeden or sites like it.
The truth is that you can scan almost any neighborhood in this country and find someone who is having an affair or someone who has contemplated having one. There’s power in honesty, folks.
As for TMC, we’ll be checking in on Gleeden every now and then. For research purposes, of course.
As always, stay classy. And if you can’t be faithful, be careful.
