Feel neglected on Mother’s Day? Today might be the day to join AshleyMadision.com – the dating website for married people. The site’s founder confirmed that the day AFTER Mother’s Day is the site’s second busiest day for women joining. (Read on to find out the first busiest day.)
“Noel Biderman, founder and president of AshleyMadison, confirms that is true year in and year out. “I think this is due to the simple fact that, for many women, Mother’s Day is a barometer of how her family and partner feel about her. That is not to say that all women are expecting to be lavished with gifts but they are expecting to be adored and lavished with gratitude, love and respect,” Biderman says. “If Mother’s Day, like so many other days, is once again hollow and absent [of positive] reinforcement … well, is it any wonder that they end up in the arms of another?”
“Biderman revealed to female-centric parenting site Momlogic.com last year that, on a typical Monday, between 2,500 and 3,000 women sign-up for the site. But on the day after Mother’s Day in 2009, AshleyMadison saw close to 24,000 new female members. (No surprise: The day after Valentine’s Day took first prize for most new female memberships on this site.) “
I would think a crappy wedding anniversary, not Mother’s Day, would be more indicative of how your husband feels about you. Wouldn’t a bad anniversary push women to join more so than a bad Mother’s Day? (I guess those numbers don’t show up because wedding anniversaries are on different days and not shared by women across the nation. Hmm.)
Do you rate how your family feels about your by your Mother’s Day treatment? What would be an acceptable day of appreciation? What would fall short? Do you think this statistic about AsheleyMadison.com is true? Would a bad Mother’s Day push you over the edge to step out on your marriage?
