- Over one in five married people admitted to cheating at the work Christmas party
- 30% kissed a co-worker or manager, while 10% slept with them
- 18% got drunk and insulted their co-worker or boss
- The results come from a survey of over 300 married people on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people
Employees across the country are hoping that what happens at the work Christmas party stays at the work Christmas party. That’s because IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, can reveal that over one in five married people admitted to cheating with someone from work at their Christmas party.
In a survey of over 300 married people who frequent the site, 22% admitted to cheating in some form with a co-worker. Of that 22%, a massive 50% inappropriately flirted with a colleague, 10% seductively danced with them and 30% kissed them
The remaining 10% went the whole way, having slept with someone from work.
While there are those who didn’t give in to temptation, they’ll still be hoping their colleagues have short memories, as 18% got drunk and insulted their co-workers or boss and a further 35% embarrassed themselves with a show of bad karaoke and ‘dad dancing’.
The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, expands:
“Another year, another Christmas party, another series of inappropriate work-based affairs.
“There are no great surprises here. Affairs between colleagues are some of the most common, and the Christmas party removes the boundaries that would normally keep two colleagues from acting upon their feelings.
“Make no mistake, unlike some affairs, this is purely driven by lust. You’re lying to yourself if you’ve not mentally ranked your colleagues in order of attractiveness – we all have – but these adulterers are the ones who take it that one step further.
“Unfortunately, the long-term effects of bedding your colleague can be pretty damaging. You’ll have to face your colleague, or your boss, when you return to work, and there’s no way that situation can be anything other than incredibly awkward for everyone involved.
“Our advice? Make sure your thoughts about your colleagues remain as just thoughts, and save the affair for a situation that won’t ruin your career.”
