- Vegans and vegetarians are more likely to cheat on you than meat-eaters
- The cheating habits of 1,000 veggies/vegans and 1,000 meat eaters on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, were studied, with veggies and vegans surpassing their meat-eating counterparts in every aspect
- Vegans and veggies engage in an average of four affairs a year, lasting roughly 5 months each, and just 55% show remorse or guilt for their actions
- By comparison, meat eaters have just 3 affairs per year, lasting 2 months, with 87% showing guilt or remorse for their actions
- With vegetarians and vegans denying themselves meat, it’s unlikely that they’ll place any further restrictions on their lifestyle, meaning they’re more likely to stray should the opportunity arise
Clean eaters, mean cheaters. While vegans and vegetarians take pride in healthy living, scratching the surface a little reveals that all is not as it seems.
IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, surveyed over 1,000 of their members who are either vegetarian or vegan.
As it turns out, veggies and vegans, on average, engage in four affairs a year, sometimes juggling more than one at a time. Their affairs also tend to last as much as 5 months each time.
They’re startling numbers, but the cheaters themselves aren’t alarmed. In fact, just 55% of veggies/vegans admitted to feeling remorseful or guilty about any of their affairs.
Interestingly, 38% admitted to cheating on their diet on multiple occasions, showing that they’re not necessarily able to resist temptation.
The site also surveyed 1,000 of its members who have no dietary restrictions, and as it turns out, they’re nowhere near as bad as their plant-eating counterparts. To be precise, they engage in just 3 affairs per year, not 5, with the average affair lasting around 2 months, less than half the 5 months for vegetarians and vegans.
To top it off, a whopping 87% of cheating meat eaters are guilt-ridden, compared to the aforementioned 55% of veggies/vegans.
The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains why this may be:
“The majority of vegetarians and vegans choose not to eat for their love of animals, and less so because of their objection to the taste of meat itself. By refusing themselves a pleasure that, arguably, is a natural human desire, they not only attain a higher level of moral superiority, they’re less likely to allow restrictions in other aspects of their lives.
“Their pent up tensions can’t be contained forever, and there’s only so many restrictions anyone is willing to place upon themselves. Evidently, a monogamous relationship isn’t one of them.”
