Has your partner got any inexplicable, mysterious plans this coming weekend? If so, you’re right to be alarmed.
IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, can that this Friday 17th November is the the single most popular day for adulterers this winter.
‘Unfaithful Friday’, as it’s been dubbed, marks a last-chance getaway for adulterers, who set off for one last romance before Christmas is in full swing, and commitments to family and friends start to get in the way.
It isn’t just the 17th that’s busy however. In fact, last year, the entire week saw a 30% increase in activity – which includes the amount of photos uploaded, profiles created and the number of messages sent – compared with any other week in November or December. As much as a 41% increase already seen on the first two days of the week so far in 2017, with a 50% increase predicted for the week in total.
A survey of over 500 adulterers on the site also found that a tremendous 79% have plans in place to get away with their mistress/histress on Unfaithful Friday, while as many as 20% intend to spend the entire weekend with their secret tryst.
With Unfaithful Friday representing the last affair of the year for many adulterers, most aren’t skimping on their destinations, and plan to go out in style.
Paris (17%) is the most popular destination, followed by Austria (15%), just in time for its famous Christmas markets.
The remainder of adulterers are mainly seeking retreats closer to home, with Yorkshire (14%), the Scottish Highlands (13%), Central London (11%), and the Peak District (7%) all proving popular.
The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:
“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. The thoughtful gift you appreciate but in your heart of hearts don’t honestly like. Stuffing your face full of turkey. It’s Christmas, and for an adulterer, that spells trouble.
“From Christmas shopping to nativity plays to seeing the in-laws, Christmas is undoubtedly the biggest stumbling block for anyone seeing their mistress or histress.
“That choke point leads to the inevitable: a premature year-ending romp to see out 2017 in style, albeit prematurely.
“So, if your partner is being coy about their plans this weekend, then it might be best to apply a bit of pressure to the wound and see what they’re really up to.”
