Isabel10, I am suggesting in a very few words all the possible reasons why partners cheat - because they are bored with their partner, because an attractive alternative partner flatters them to seduce them, to prove they still have the magnetism to attract a new love, because the opportunity simply arises for them and they grasp it, like a ripe orange falling off a tree into your lap in Toulon, etc.

It seems to me like we've been here before.

Boredom.
Flattery.
The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.
"I've still got it".
Trying different sweetie jars in the candy store.
Spite.
Falling out of love.
Falling in love.
Money.
Opportunity.
Emotional immaturity.
Lack of physical gratification in stable relationship.
Lack of emotional gratification in current relationship.
"The devil made me do it."
"I have no idea what made me do it."
Probably several dozen reasons I've missed.

Sojo50, I take your excellent point about trying to comfort the suffering and yes, in the circumstances of yesterday, that is a form of help I could perhaps offer.

Hope7dre, I bow to nobody in th depth of my admiration for the courage, commitment and compassion of our police and emergency services; and one of my prime motivations in the face of tragedy would be to try and get out of their way, to give them space to do their job, rather than distract them from the job in hand by being one of the press of eager onlookers they have to control.

My deepest condolences go to the loved ones and friends of the brave police officer and the three other innocents (let us hope the final toll) murdered in Westminster yesterday, and to the dozens who suffered traumatic and, in some cases, life-changing injuries yesterday, due to a man's deranged and misguided ideological fanaticism.

That sounds horrible isabel10 - so your fear is being bitten again? I know you don't fear all dogs.

I'm not sure what my worst fear is - probably senile dementia. As a non-swimmer I'm quite nervous about entering small, unstable looking boats on the sea.

I'm sure there are innumerable reasons. but to be fair it's not a trait restricted to male partners.

Often degree educated, often have a secret they want to share with me, profile often filled with (as wapntake the suggests) the repeated words "I'll tell you later".

I am watching news coverage of the dreadful terrorist attack on pedestrians and police officers around the House of Commons today. I am struck by the large number of images that seem to have been contributed by members of the public, as if their first reaction on seeing people mown down by a car and hearing shots was to reach for their camera phones. In fact one interviewee said as much: "I realised something was happening so I started filming..."

A similar effect is often seen on motorways (freeways, autobahns, whatever you might call them). A crash happens on the south carriageway - and within minutes a far worse pile-up has happened on the north carriageway due to drivers there gawping at the carnage (here we call it rubber necking).

Is it just me, or is there something unpleasantly ghoulish about this sort of reaction? What is it in human nature - some human natures - that makes the immediate reaction to tragedy to try and get a better look, or even record the gore for posterity? I don't have the kind of skills that would be helpful to someone who had experienced such terrible trauma, and my reflex response is to be repulsed, and to try and put distance between myself and the human suffering taking place. So does that make me abnormal, or those people with their camera phones at the ready? Would you be trying to get the money shot in such circumstances?

I understand your concerns and they're perfectly reasonable. But all social websites attract a proportion of trolls and spammers, they come and go, and the reason they go here is that they are dealt with. The one way to encourage their activities would be to stop reporting them.

Both of you have been here long enough to know that we had a particular problem with spammers for a short time after the sad death of the original site owner, but new admin came on board and the spammers were ousted. Yes, we always have a few, that's life on the internet, but they don't last long. Admin can't be online 24-7-365, like the rest of us here on CF they have a real life out there; but this site retains great integrity, those of us involved with it work hard to keep it that way, and I'm confident admin will be along very soon to deal with our current handful of ne'er do wells.
