We have encountered one another via an internet dating service established for the sole purpose of enabling married people to commit adultery.It may sound like an unpleasant niche website for a handful of amoral people to whom wedding vows never meant very much.I wonder if anyone has ever read this, seen the wisdom of it and decided not to join. "I'm witty, charming, handsome and modest, and I'm kind to animals," I write, hoping this description will have a fairly broad appeal, and also include a recent photograph.Your picture can be viewed only if you give a password to the person with whom you are conversing.I'm already starting to feel like I've had enough of this experiment.But if I'm going to find out what really makes these women tick, I need to leave the safety of the virtual world and see them for myself. I arrange to meet a 41-year-old mother of two who misses "romance and flirting", in a cafe in two days' time.And all of them are looking for an opportunity to betray their spouses. But I wanted to find out what sort of woman uses such a site.
All Paid users can message and post and they also have added benefits.
But it claims to have more than 100,000 members in the UK.
Many of them are middle-class, many have young children.
She seems rather on edge and sends me a text message at the time we're due to meet asking why I'm using the website.
I reply, telling her to come over and ask me face to face. She looks furtively around and asks me if I'm nervous. There is tension in the air like North and South Korea coming together to hammer out a treaty.
