Why is AshleyMadison.com, an affairs dating site, so popular? Approximately, 160 million people visit the site every year, and it currently holds about 13 million accounts. The website is for people who are in committed monogamous relationships to discretely cheat, or have an affair. So, it is a question of authenticity and honesty. We’re not talking about polygamy, open relationships, or casual dating where your partner or the other person typically knows that it is not a monogamous situation.

This is particularly relevant to men because most studies show that men tend to have more affairs than women. Besides this point, if you are interested in any type of monogamous relationship, then this is something that you should be aware of because it is so prevalent today. At some time in your life, it is probably going to affect you whether it is the girl having the affair or whether it’s you that gets tempted and involved in an affair.

Today’s guest is Jayson Gaddis. He is a certified psychotherapist, counselor, and relationship specialist working with men. He has also founded and led a number of men’s groups over the years for self-development, growth, and other purposes.

I came across him through some really interesting writing of his on the root cause of affairs and their impact on us. I found the interview very thought provoking and I hope you do to.
