Though the Internet is fun and useful, it can also present a number of challenges. For instance, with the rise in usage of social media and dating websites, it is even simpler for unfaithful partners to meet new people to date even though they're attached. According to DivorceMag, only 46 percent of men think that having online affairs is classified as infidelity. If you're concerned that your spouse might have an Internet dating profile, use common sense to discover the truth for yourself.

Step 1

Make a list of the most popular Internet dating websites — both free and paid. These include eHarmony, Match.com, Chemistry.com and others. You usually must create a profile of your own in order to search for others on the Internet website.

Step 2

Create a custom search for each website. Narrow down the search based on your location as well as other key attributes of your spouse. Some websites allow you to narrow down searches by many different attributes, including age range, hobbies, ethnicity, height and even eye color. It is unlikely that you'll find the person by name since many dating websites use screen name handles, but in some cases the person's first name might be listed in the screen name.

Step 3

Sort through all of the results to see if you find your spouse's picture on the websites on your list.

Tip

Before taking these actions, consider just talking to your spouse directly instead to find out the truth of whether or not he has a dating profile.

Consult with a professional marriage counselor or therapist for advice and guidance on this matter as it involves serious issues of trust.

Warning

Be sure to observe all state and federal laws when doing your search.
