Find a Partner in Crime
People cheat. It’s a fact. And while there are plenty of fish in the unfaithful sea, it pays to cast your line away from work, your friends and the long arm of the law. At least, that’s what former lawyer Noel Biderman told us back in January when we interviewed him about AshleyMadison.com, a dating site for the unfaithful among us.
“What we are saying is that if you have decided to step outside of your relationship, don’t have an affair at work and risk losing your job as well, don’t go on a singles-dating site and lie about your marital status, and don’t break the law and seek out a prostitute.”
That’s good advice. But you, of course, have to pair it with some of the tips we just gave you. Call your partner in crime with a pre-paid phone, pay for hotels with a pre-paid credit card, and let Benjamin Franklin pick up the tab when you go out. And if you don’t think that’s good advice, walk down the hall, find the nearest divorced partner, and run some of those ideas by him or her.
