An Ashley Madison Analysis

This would be funnier if I didn't see just how sad and lonely it is.
Almost None of the Women in the Ashley Madison Database Ever Used the Site

 "What I discovered was that the world of Ashley Madison was a far more dystopian place than anyone had realized. This isn’t a debauched wonderland of men cheating on their wives. It isn’t even a sadscape of 31 million men competing to attract those 5.5 million women in the database. Instead, it’s like a science fictional future where every woman on Earth is dead, and some Dilbert-like engineer has replaced them with badly-designed robots."

Repeat after me, "There are no women that want to meet men on the internet.."

At least not that way....

Before I married my current wife, I did the Internet Dating thing for several years, and I met some very nice women, and a few psychos, too.

eHarmony was the worst. Besides being expensive, all the women, except one, that they matched me with were totally incompatible with me.

They were either screaming liberals, hard-boiled, high-pressure business women, or neurotics looking to marry the first guy they met.

Yahoo Personals was pretty cool, but tended to have younger women.

I have nothing against dating younger women, but for a serious relationship, once the age gap gets too big, you really can't (or rarely) relate to each other. was the best, and that's how I met my sweet little wife.

It might be elucidating to read "The Disappearance", by Phyllip Wylie. Written someone in the 1950's, Wylie postulated a world in which 99.9% of the women in the world suddenly ... were no longer there.

The sociological effects of this apparently irreversible phenomenon were draconian, at best.

And then, after a few years, the women re-appeared, and no time had past.
And the men had to account for the heinous acts they had performed under the most stressful conditions imaginable.

fast forward to today, and we find people who are so socialogically and sexually stressed that they bypass accepted norms of social interaction, but with much less extreme stress.

the bottom line is that the world is a much more confusing place than it was in the 1950's, but large segments of our people haven't been able to adapt to the world which is NOT YOUR FATHER'S OLDSMOBILE!

We're going to see some very bizarre compensatory functions for a while. So as Bette Davis said: "Hold on, it's going to be a wild ride!"
