Mother’s Day comes around every second Sunday of May and every year, more women are left feeling disappointed and disgruntled. That’s why the Monday after Mother’s Day is when a lot of committed women seem to seek satisfaction outside of their marriage or relationship, like with an affair.
A popular dating web site designed for individuals seeking out an extramarital affair has found that after Mother’s Day, there’s a significant spike in the number of women who are signing up. On any other Monday, the site gets about 25,000 new members, but the majority (65%) of new affair seekers are men. However, on the Monday right after Mother’s Day, the number of new sign-ups increases to anywhere between 100,000 to 150,000, and this time, 65% of the new members are women.
So, what is it about this day that leaves so many women feeling unhappy in their marriages and relationships? “That day is a day of neglect,” says the site’s founder. “It just reinforces that their marriage is going the wrong way.”
A lot of women expect the royal treatment on Mother’s Day, but when their husbands, boyfriends, and kids fail to meet those high expectations, they’re left feeling frustrated, underappreciated, and oftentimes angry. It’s the same reason why more women sign up for an affair after Valentine’s Day.
For many of these disappointed women, it makes sense that they would seek out a sugar daddy to have an affair with. After all, who better to make you feel special than a handsome older man who has no problem showering you with flattery and expensive gifts. A sugar daddy is also more appealing because a lot of them aren’t looking for a serious, long-term commitment. There is often more flexibility with regards to the nature of your relationship.
We’re not saying that every woman who has a moment of disappointment in their marriage should rush out and find themselves a sugar daddy to have an affair with, but it’s definitely an option. But if an affair is something you’re considering, or already doing for that matter, just be prepared to deal with the consequences of getting caught.
What do you think: Did you ever cheat because you felt unappreciated in your marriage or relationship?
