Have a thing for your married boss? A steamy supply-room hookup might not be so far-flung, thanks to a racy new dating service calledAffair at Work. Launched last month, the site is designed to help married and taken employees “safely” cheat on their partners at the office. Here’s how it works:
- A wannabe cheater heads to the site’s homepage, where he or she can log in through an Instagram account, enter a co-worker crush’s handle and e-mail address, as well as his or her own.
- Then, the potential flame receives an e-mail declaring, “A co-worker wants to have an affair with you.” If they choose to go to the site — and happen to enter the other person’s Instagram handle and e-mail address — the two-timers get an e-mail breaking the good (?) news. “You both requested an affair with each other. Enjoy!” the service cheerily declares, along with their Instagram handles.
The site’s founder “Mike” says that way, “you’ll know they’re into it before you even make a move.” The 36-year-old software engineer, who asked to only be identified by his first name to prevent his life from going up in flames, thinks the site will be a game-changer for shy Jims and Pams of the world — and also believes it will crack down on #MeToo moments.
