Is your relationship tired or unfulfilling? Do you feel ignored, taken for granted, misunderstood? Maybe it's time for a creative fling.

If you're a creative type looking to stray outside a stale and loveless partnership, Ashley Madison Avenue is here to help. The parody site, which launched Wednesday, mimics its infamous data-breached namesake in design, if not intent.

See that bearded hipster on the homepage? He's no unfaithful spouse. He's an art director seeking a copywriter on the side. Below are the results you'll find if you're a copywriter looking for some hot AD action of your own:

The site comes from The Terri & Sandy Solution, with co-founder and co-president Sandy Greenberg encouraging advertising types to write witty profiles and, perhaps, hook up (creatively). The objective: Cultivating professional endeavors, not hanky panky.

"We're giving license for creative partners to cheat and have fun," Greenberg said. After all, careers are short. Why not have an affair?
