About the book: In this book the focus is on this new form of deception: people who deliberately seek to communicate in secret with other people through texts, chats, e-mails and dating sites, even though they are in close relationships.
Utilising the database of ashleymadison.com, the book exposes this new seduction and the impact of accessible, anonymous and affordable connections on modern-day marriages and relationships.
While the Internet can be a great place to meet new people, reconnect with old friends, or even start romantic relationships, online relationships are not a healthy substitute for real life interactions.
Online friends tend to exist in a bubble, not subject to the same demands or stresses as messy real-world relationships.
After all, it’s rarely the phone or tablet itself that creates the compulsion, but rather the games, apps, and online worlds it connects us to.
