Here’s what male and female love cheats look like and how they behave in 2019.
The typical male cheat is a 43-year-old manager earning £58,000 a year – just over twice the national income of £28,400.
At 5ft 10in, he is an inch taller than Mr Average and his size ten feet are also one size bigger than the size 9 norm.
He drives a Golf, his number one hobby is also golf and his favourite TV show is Match of the Day.
He has dark hair with flecks of grey which he prefers not to dye.
The typical female cheat is slightly younger than her male counterpart at 39 – reflecting a trend which shows that people in the last year of a decade are more likely to be unfaithful because ‘watershed’ birthdays such as 30 and 40 prompt life changes.
She is also a white collar professional and, because of the gender pay gaps, she earns slightly less at £52,000 a year.
At 5ft 4in, she is also an inch taller than the typical British woman and she is also more likely to wear high heels on her feet which are a size 7, one above the average.
She drives a Mini, her main hobby away from work is going to the gym and her favourite TV show is The Great British Bake Off.
The typical profiles of adulterers in the UK were compiled by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people.
They looked at the most popular characteristics of 5,000 male and female cheats based on preferences in their profiles and questionnaires.
IllicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said: “What these two profiles show is that Mr and Mrs Average love cheat are richer than your ordinary person but in most other respects they are typical.
“They like the same TV shows, drive the same cars and have the same hobbies as anyone else.
“One other big giveaway for both sexes if you are trying to spot if your partner will be unfaithful is size. Cheats tend to be taller in both sexes and have a bigger feet.
“The other big warning sign is age, particularly if they are entering the last year of a decade. If your partner is turning 30, 40 or 50 this year, do make an effort to spoil them because they may be thinking of making a change.”
January is the busiest month of the year for IllicitEncounters.com with a 25% rise in registrations due to people becoming fed up with their partners over the Christmas holiday and acting on a New Year’s Resolution to spice up their love life.
Busiest week of all for registrations is this week – the first proper week back to work after New Year – when more people are said to file for divorce than any other week of the year.
