Tall, smart and rich – if your husband is any of those, they’re more likely to be a cheat.
That’s according to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity,
The site studied over 10,000 profiles to find out what common traits link to create the archetypal cheat.
The most common trait among cheating men was wealth, with references to being rich, wealthy or affluent appearing in a staggering 45% of all profiles.
This was followed by height. To be exact, 40% of all male profiles on the site were 6ft or taller.
Finally, intelligent men who were educated to at least a university degree level made up as much as 38% of all profiles on the site, indicating that smarter men are more likely to cheat.
For women, the most common trait was actually their job. As many as 30% of all women on IllicitEncounters.com describe themselves as lonely.
This was followed by the 27% of women who described themselves with terms such as ‘virile’ and finally, housewives, who make up 20% of all female profiles on the site – it’s the most popular female occupation to boot.
The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:
“Our results show that men have a tough time suppressing their ego. Tall, affluent, smart – these men have it all… or at least, they think they can have it all. They want to have their cake and eat it too, and that includes having as many relationships as they see fit.
“Not to mention, as a smart, wealthy and tall man, you’re more likely to be attracting female attention, whether you like it or not, which only serves to fuel their ego and make them consider an affair as a plausible option.
“Women on the other hand, paint a different story altogether. Your typical cheating women isn’t driven by arrogance, ego or lust, but by a sense of loneliness, thanks to a lack of satisfaction in her marriage.
“This loneliness is further compounded for housewives, who potentially spend hours alone, only to further be neglected when their husbands come home.”
