  • I have never heard of people being addicted to dating site, but I guess anything is posssiblle, that it really something that a married man should not be doing though.

  • well unless he saw the girls on camera, anyone could be chatting to him and anyone can send pics off the internet. For all you or him know, these "girls" are 50-yr old men having a laugh at making him look like a fool. Wouldn't be the first time people have lied about themselves online.

  • no one can stop an addiction over night whether it be porn or drugs and alcohol.. If he is truly addicted he needs therapy and if he is making excuses he will not want to go to therapy IMO... But that is unacceptable in a marriage or even a relationship.. You need to set boudaries and decide if he will be apart of the solution or be the problem! Good Luck Hun!

  • JMO. He is not addicted. It is an excuse, cause you caught him. He told the truth when he said " I would still be doing it if you would not have caught me".

  • I agree with knm51504, if he's really addicted, then he can swear up and down and promise all he wants, but if he doesn't get help he won't stop.

    If he isn't addicted, he has no excuse, and he just doesn't respect you, or your marriage.

    Bottom line, what are you willing to put up with, and how will you ever trust him?

  • Here's the thing, too. Now that you've caught him, I seriously doubt he'll just stop. He'll probly be more careful about getting caught now. This just may make him more sneaky and learn how to do it without your knowledge. Its pretty easy to cover your tracks if you really learn how to do it.

  • I agree with Libraraianwomen.. Just because he is showing you his cell and all the stuff on it. does not mean anything. It is call erase everything so you do not know about it. It is ease to open different account you do not know about.  He probably did not change. Just change all his account so you do not know about them.  I hope we are wrong.
