New Jersey’s Matchmaker is a traditional matchmaking service designed for commitment-minded singles.
In 2006, while using her boyfriend's laptop, Surrey found a copy of a marriage license.
Unsure of whose name was on it, she magnified the document to view it more closely.
She could hardly believe what she was reading: The name on the certificate was that of her live-in boyfriend.
"After I found out my significant other of nine years had gotten married behind my back, I was devastated," Surrey said.
"It took me a long time to trust a man again." Surrey, a Jersey City resident, confronted her unfaithful partner with the license that showed he had recently exchanged vows. Surrey said she had no reason to be suspicious of him as they had lived together for years — even after he married.
He told her his parents did not approve of their relationship because she was eight years his senior, so he married his wife to appease them. Despite the disappointment, in November 2013, Surrey found herself in a new relationship — but this one would be a business partnership.
Her longtime friend Gary Spivak approached her with the idea for Fidelity — a dating website aimed at people who have been cheated on.Fidelity is their response to popular cheaters' websites such as Ashley Madison.com, whose motto is "Life is short.Have an affair." "Having been a victim of infidelity, I thought it was a brilliant idea," said Surrey, 57."I thought it was exactly what many people I had met over the years told me they were looking for." It was what she had been looking for, too.In addition to running the website, Surrey is also among its 5,000 users. "The idea of starting a website for those that might have been cheated on or betrayed — but also for those looking to be in a faithful relationship, regardless of their past experiences — really appealed to me," said Spivak, who has been married for 19 years.Once a person signs up, he or she can search for a match based on proximity, sex and age.
