    Are you surprised most women profiles on Ashley Madison were fake?

    According to a data analysis conducted by Gizmodo, the vast majority of the 5.5 million profiles for women on Ashley Madison were fake! Among those that were real, fewer than 10,000 responded to a message from a would-be cheating partner and (fewer than 1,500 ever checked their inbox). Note: AM had (31 Million accounts belonging to men)! My theory is any decent looking woman that wants to cheat doesn't have to pay hundreds/thousands of dollars to find a guy who will oblige her! It wouldn't be a surprise if some of the women are escorts using the site to leverage customers. Are men gullible?

    I was a little surprised at first because I know that a lot of women cheat. But after I thought about it I realized that we get hit on several times a day in real life so I don't think services like this are needed as much by women who look to cheat. Also, women are better at covering their tracks and wouldn't be stupid enough to sign up for an actual cheating service and leave evidence. And for the record, cheating is NEVER ok. If you're not happy then set your partner free so they can find happiness, too.

      Excellent points! (Women get hit on every day). I believe most cheaters aren't interested in replacing one relationship with another one. They're looking to "compliment" what they already have. Men aren't often known for {filing} for divorce.

      Sad but true.  What's used to compliment a relationship only ends up contaminating or destroying it.  But no matter how many times evidence shows the devastation, we keep trying to do it better than the last guy/girl.

      The reality is most cheaters don't believe they will get caught. I suspect this is why they don't concern themselves with the potential aftermath. I guess this true of all criminals, liars, or thieves. No one plans to be caught.

    Not surprised at all.  I'm sure the frequency of cheating is actually pretty even between men and women, but as it's been pointed out, most women don't need to pay money to find someone to cheat with.  I understand that there's supposed to be some comfort in knowing that the person you're cheating with is also married and thus less likely to tell anyone, but I think there's also the perception that men are less likely to become attached to a married woman and want to ruin her relationship - it's just sex.  I think the concern for a lot of men is that women are going to become emotionally invested and tell their wives.  Whether that perception is correct or not... I don't know.

    But I do know that, as a married woman, if I wanted to cheat on my husband I could have done it a hundred times over by now and could probably go out to a bar tonight and get it done within an hour.  Why on earth would I pay money to do it?

      "Why on earth would I pay money to do it?" - Exactly!
      And yet over 31 million men never gave that a thought!
      I agree with you the mindset of having "shared risk" may have been the attraction.
      According to statistics most affairs occur at work.

    I haven't given the matter any thought, because I am indifferent.  I personally find it funny.  It's pathetic enough that anyone would need to use such a site; so on some level, they deserve to be deceived.
    This makes me wonder how much deceit goes on with actual dating sites...

      I'm willing to bet there are a large amount of fake and inactive profiles on a lot of dating websites especially when it comes to women's profiles. Maybe eHarmony might be the exception since you're required to answer 400
