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.”

Cat Owners Are Most Likely to Cheat, While Dog Owners are the Most Faithful

  • If you own a cat, you’re more likely to cheat, it’s been revealed
  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, surveyed 1,000 of their members, with 26% owning cats
  • The second most adulterous pet owners were home to rabbits (17%)
  • They were followed by reptile owners (15%) and rodents (12%)
  • Unsurprisingly, the most faithful pet owners were home to man’s best friend, with just 7% of all respondents owning a dog

Suspicious that your partner might be cheating? Forget checking their emails, tracing their footsteps or stalking their social media feeds, but do be wary if they own a cat.

That’s because cat owners are officially the most adulterous pet owners in the country.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, found that over a quarter of 1,000 of its members own cats, making them by far the most adulterous pet owners.

The survey found that you’d also be inclined to be wary if your significant other owns a rabbit, with 17% of all respondents home to the pet perhaps best known for its virility.

15% owned reptiles, such as lizards and snakes, while as many as 12% owned a rodent of some kind, such as a hamster, gerbil or mouse; 9% of respondents are home to fish.

As for man’s best friend? Unsurprisingly, dog owners are officially the most faithful pet owners – just 7% of all respondents owned a dog.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, explains:

“It’s often been said that a person reflects the traits of their animal, so is it any surprise to see cats top the list?

“The jury has always been out on whether cats genuinely love their human companions, or whether their loyalty lies with whoever can best satisfy their stomachs.

“Simply put, cats will follow whoever can best satisfy their needs, no matter how long they’ve been with a particular human.

“It’s also no surprise to see rabbits, who have a pretty notorious reputation for their powers of reproduction, and reptiles such as snakes – not exactly known for their loyalty – closely follow cats.

“On the other hand, has there ever been any doubt about the loyalty of a dog?

“Their love is and always has been unconditional, and those qualities are often reflected in their owners. Simply put, if you want trust, love and a bond that’s almost unbreakable, marry a dog owner.”

Most Adulterous Pet Owners:

1. Cat (26%)

2. Rabbit (17%)

3. Reptile (15%)

4. Other/no pet (14%)

5. Rodent (12%)

6. Fish (9%)

7. Dog (7%)

Tall, Smart and Rich? You’re More Likely to Cheat

  • Tall, smart and rich men are more likely to cheat than anyone else
  • Meanwhile, women who describe themselves as lonely, virile and are housewives are more likely to cheat
  • The results show that men are driven to cheat because of lust, arrogance and their ego…
  • …while your typical women cheats because she’s being neglected by her significant other
  • The results come from lllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, who studied over 10,000 profiles to find out what common traits link to create the archetypal cheat.

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.”

Friday 21st July Is The Peak Day for Affairs This Year​

Friday 21st July Is The Peak Day for Affairs This Year​

  • Friday July 21st – dubbed Frisky Friday – is the peak day for affairs this year
  • Frisky Friday represents the last chance adulterers have to see their lovers as schools across the country finish
  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, has seen a 20% increase in site activity in the first two week’s of the month, and 45% in the third
  • It’s predicting a 65% rise on Frisky Friday – the busiest single day of the year for affairs
  • The site also surveyed 300 of its members and found that 75% were planning on staying in touch with their lovers while abroad, 20% plan on meeting up with them shortly after they return home and 5% are planning to meet while they’re on holiday

Warmer weather, clearer skies and longer days – summer is in full swing, and that means more people are cheating than any other time of the year.

That’s according to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity.

The site has seen a 20% increase in site activity in the first two week’s of the month, and this has significantly increased in the third week – to 45% to be precise.

However, it’s on Friday 21st July – dubbed Frisky Friday – that adultery in the UK for 2017 is set to hit its peak.

Frisky Friday represents the last chance adulterers have to see their lovers as schools across the country finish, and long summer holidays with their family soon to commence, and as much as a 65% rise in site activity is expected.

The site also surveyed 300 of its members and found that as many as 75% were planning on staying in touch with their secret trysts while they were holidaying with their family, while 20% plan on meeting up with them shortly after they return home.

Astonishingly, 5% have arranged and are planning to meet their fellow adulterer while they’re away on holiday.

Christian Grant, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, expands:

“While many of us long for the summer – the longer evenings, clear skies and generally upbeat atmosphere – the hidden truth is that it’s the season that’s ripe for adultery.

“Combine the feeling of a summer’s day, the fact that we’re spending more of our evenings socialising, and with all of us having plenty more skin on show, and you’ve got a potent cocktail that lays the foundations for cheating; it’s something that even the most loyal among us find hard to resist.

“For adulterers who are already in long-term affairs, the summer poses a different problem. Their children are home from school, and with a summer holiday on the horizon, meeting up with their mistress becomes tricky. So, the final week of the summer term sees adulterers meet up for what could be one last fling before September comes around.”

Theresa May Leads the Polls As She’s Officially Voted the UK’s Sexiest Politician

  • Jeremy Hunt and Theresa May are officially the UK’s sexiest politicians
  • With 24% of the female vote and 24% of the male vote, Jeremy Hunt and Theresa May top the list
  • On the other hand, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron (3%) and Shadow Home Secretary Dianne Abbott (2%) are the least desirable politicians
  • Men said that power (40%), intelligence (30%) and solvency (25%) were the most important factors behind their decisions
  • Women had a similar set of priorities; intelligence (44%), power (30%) and solvency (20%).
  • The results come from a survey of over 500 members on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

With the general election just weeks away, IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, has asked its members to take part in a slightly different kind of poll, with over 500 of its members asked on which politician they find sexiest.

Surprisingly, much maligned health secretary Jeremy Hunt topped the polls, receiving 24% of the female vote.

In second place was none other than Boris Johnson (20%), followed closely by Labour MP Dan Jarvis (15%) and, oddly, Jeremy Corbyn (10%),

On the other hand, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron received just 3% of the vote, making him the least attractive politician.

John McDonnell, didn’t fare so well either; with just 5% of the vote, only Tim Farron is less attractive than he is.

Other notable entries include former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who received 7% of the female vote.

Perhaps rather surprisingly, Theresa May was voted as the sexiest female politician (24%), with Yvette Cooper a close second (20%). Green Party leader Caroline Lucas rounded off the top 3 (18%).

There was no surprise when it came to the least popular female politician however: Dianne Abbott. Receiving just 2% of the male vote, she beat Emily Thornberry (4%) and Nicky Morgan (6%) to bottom spot.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson also featured,  as did Conservative MP Esther McVey;  both received 9% of the vote.

Men said that power (40%), intelligence (30%) and solvency (25%) were the most important factors behind their decisions, while women had a similar set of priorities; intelligence (44%), power (30%) and solvency (20%).

Christian Grant, spokesperson for the site, explains:

“It’s fair to say that, on the looks front, the British political scene is missing a Justin Trudeau, Emmanuel Macron or even a Sarah Palin.

“What we do have, however, are intelligent and solvent people, and that’s where the attraction seems to primarily lie. Theresa May kitted out in lingerie doesn’t really make for a sexy calendar, but for many people, power is attractive, and she’s definitely got that in abundance.

“The same can be said of Corbyn; he’s got that cute grandad thing going on. For Tim Farron and Dianne Abbot, however, well, the latter hasn’t even mastered the basics of mathematics for crying out loud.”

Most Attractive Politicians – Male

  1. Jeremy Hunt (24%)
  2. Boris Johnson (20%)
  3. Dan Jarvis (15%)
  4. Jeremy Corbyn (10%)
  5. Michael Gove (8%)
  6. Other (8%)
  7. Nigel Farage (7%)
  8. John McDonnell (5%)
  9. Tim Farron (3%)

Most Attractive Politicians – Female

  1. Theresa May (24%)
  2. Yvette Cooper (20%)
  3. Caroline Lucas (18%)
  4. Esther McVey (9%)
  5. Ruth Davidson (9%)
  6. Other (8%)
  7. Nicky Morgan (6%)
  8. Emily Thornberry (4%)

The Most Successful Words for An Online Dating Profile Have Been Revealed

  • The comprehensive list of the best and worst adjectives to use for your online dating profile have been revealed
  • Men are looking for a woman who describes herself as sexy, honest and confident, while women want honesty, intelligence and confidence
  • Women should stay away from describing themselves as shy, trustworthy and happy, while men should also avoid shy and happy, as well as curvy
  • Many men (4%) like women who describe themselves as curvy, but only 0.6% of women describe themselves in this way
  • Interestingly, women are more likely to describe themselves as sexy, but they’re less likely to ask for someone sexy in return
  • The results come from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, who studied over 400,000 profiles on their site

Struggling to get much attention on your online dating profile? Include the words “sexy”, “honest” and “confident” and your chances of success will significantly increase.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, studied over 400,000 profiles on their site to find what men and women were both looking for from their ideal partner, as well as how they described themselves.

If you’re a woman, then the key words to include on your profile are “sexy”, “honest” and “confident” as 15%, 10% and 7% of men respectively are after these traits more so than anything else.

In the meantime, stay well clear of describing yourself as shy (2%), trustworthy (1%) and, oddly enough, happy (0.3%).

If you’re a man whose profile is filled with references to how handsome everyone tells you you are, remove all of that and instead refer to yourself as honest (13%), intelligent (10%) and confident (9%); women value your character over your vanity.

In terms of what to avoid, there’s nothing that screams “undateable” quite like referring to yourself as shy, curvy or, again, happy; just  1%, 0.09% and 0.4% of women respectively are looking for these traits.

In terms of how people described themselves, you’re most likely to stumble across a man who’s honest (10%), intelligent (9%) and confident (8%), while women are honest (9%), sexy (8%) and intelligent (7%).

Interestingly, many men (4%) like women who describe themselves as curvy, but only 0.6% of women describe themselves in this way. Women are, however, more likely to describe themselves as sexy, but they’re less likely to ask for someone sexy in return.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explained the importance of creating a good first impression:

“With so much competition, the world of online dating is all about fine margins; anything that’s even slightly off-putting marks you as a liability.

“Many people struggle to strike the balance between confidence and arrogance, instead adopting an overly modest approach, but that rarely works. Who wants to go out with someone who describes themselves as shy and introverted? Nobody, that’s who.

“It’s no surprise to see that both men and women are looking for someone whose honest and confident, but there are some interesting differences between the sexes.

“Most notably, men are, on the whole, gravitated more toward someone who really sells their looks; words such as ‘sexy’ or ‘curvy’ are all-important.

“While these aren’t exactly unimportant to women, you’ll find that they’re more concerned if someone’s intelligent or affectionate  – without that, it doesn’t matter how sexy you are.”

The ideal number of sexual partners has been revealed, and 12 is the magic number

  • There *is* an ideal number of sexual partners to have had, and it’s 12
  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, surveyed over 1,000 people to find that 40% of men and 49% of women thought that between 10 and 14 partners is best, with 12 being perfect
  • 60% of men and 55% of women agreed that sleeping with as many as 12 partners is indicative of someone who’s sexually adventurous, liberal and transient.
  • Conversely, 70% of men and 66% of women said that anything less than 10 partners indicates sexual inexperience and a lack of adventure in the bedroom
  • Men and women disagreed when it came to sexual history; over half of men want to know how many people their partner has slept with – they want to know what the competition is like – while as little as 45% of women are interested

Is there an ideal number of sexual partners someone can have? As it turns out, yes, and that number is 12.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, surveyed over 1,000 people to find out how many sexual partners they’d want their new lover to have had.

As many as 40% of men and 49% of women said that between 10 and 14 partners is best, making it the most popular answer. Within that range, both men and women landed on 12 as the perfect number.

As it turns out, this represents an increase on last year’s finding, where 10 was seen as the ideal number.

Why 12? Well, 60% of men and 55% of women agreed that sleeping with as many as 12 partners is indicative of someone who’s sexually adventurous, liberal and transient.

At the same time, an overwhelming 70% of men and 66% of women said that anything less than 10 partners indicates sexual inexperience and, more importantly, someone who is a bit too conservative in the bedroom.

Both sexes also agreed that anything above 19 partners is a red flag, indicating that perhaps someone is too eager to jump from partner to partner, or simply too selfish and very difficult to please.

There is, however, one notable point in which men and women fundamentally disagreed, and that’s in knowing their partner’s sexual history. For men, this was incredibly paramount, with as a little over half (53%) stating that they’d want to know how many people their partner has slept with, while as little as 45% of women were interested in knowing the same.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, commented:

“We are more liberal, tolerant and sexually adventurous than we’ve ever been, so the numbers game matters. A good sexual connection is the cornerstone of any solid relationship, so someone who is lacking in sexual experience, is a little too conservative between the sheets, or both, is a legitimate cause for concern for some people.

“Men are a little more self-conscious when it comes to competition, too. Their need to know how many people their partner has slept with derives from their competitive streak. They want to be seen as the biggest and best; whether that stems from genuinely wanting to satisfy their partner or to massage their own ego is another matter entirely.

“Women on the other hand, they’re just happy to enjoy the moment, past experiences aside.”

‘Cheating map’ Reveals Britain’s Top Cheating Towns and Cities

  • Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, is the most adulterous town in the country
  • The most faithful town is the Welsh town of Barry
  • Islington is the capital’s most adulterous borough, while Ealing is its most faithful
  • Several affluent towns from the south of England found themselves toward the top of the index, while just one northern town, Newcastle-under-Lyme, broke the top 10
  • The most adulterous city in the country is Gloucester, while Glasgow is the most faithful
  • You can find how adulterous your town is by going to www.infidelityindex.co.uk, compiled by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

The affluent town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, is officially the nation’s cheating capital.

The Infidelity Index, compiled by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, mapped the location data of its 1.1 million members against each town’s adult population to find the most adulterous towns, cities, and London boroughs in the country.

Royal Tunbridge Wells, home to celebrities such as married comedian Jo Brand, musician Jeff Beck and Britain’s most recent female Wimbledon champion, Virginia Wade, is home to 1,146 adulterers, 2.2% of the town’s adult population, meaning it takes home the crown for the most adulterous town in the country.

The Index lists the top 140 cheating towns across the UK (and Ireland), with Guildford retaining 2nd place with 1,303 adulterers (2.1%).

Wrexham rounded off the top 3 with 1,027 adulterers – 1.89% of the town’s population.

Many of the top cheating towns were affluent areas in the south of England, such as Guildford (2nd), Ashford (5th) and High Wycombe (7th).

Meanwhile, just one northern town, Newcastle-under-Lyme, broke into the top 10 (10th place).

You can find where your town ranked here.

Speaking of High Wycombe – last year’s #1 – it slumped to 7th place with 1.77% of its population cheating, while the Welsh town of Barry is officially the least adulterous, and therefore most faithful town in the entire country; it’s home to just 88 adulterers, a meagre 0.18% of its adult population.

We’re not quite sure what happened to the people of Brentwood in the last 12 months, but 2016’s most faithful town failed to hold onto its place, finishing 102nd out of 140 with 0.56% of its population cheating.

And the town of Livingston, sitting pretty in 8th place overall, is officially Scotland’s cheating capital with 1.74% of its adult population cheating (909 adulterers).

Last year’s Scottish champion, Cumbernauld, still performed strongly, finding itself in 14th place overall, with 1.56% of its adult population cheating.

Northern Ireland can look to Newtownabbey (28th place) for its most adulterous town, while Craigavon, which is also the 2nd least adulterous town overall, is its most faithful town – just 168 people (0.19%) are having affairs.

As for the nation’s capital, it’s Islington, home to celebrities such as musician Lily Allen, comedian Jimmy Carr and radio DJ Scott Mills, that is its most adulterous borough, with as many as 11,778 people cheating (5.94% of its adult population).

Ealing is London’s most faithful borough, with just 1.7% of its adult population cheating on their spouses (5,979 adulterers).

For the first time ever, the Index also includes the most adulterous cities. London as a whole is one of the nation’s most faithful cities – the 5th most faithful – with just 1.47% of its adult population cheating.

Gloucester is the UK’s most adulterous city, with 7.46% of its adult population having affairs. Glasgow is the least adulterous, with just 0.56% of its adult population cheating.

Peterborough, with 7.36% of its adult population, comes in 2nd, with Bath (7.35%) rounding off the top 3.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, commented on the findings:

“People have had affairs since the dawn of time, but the last decade in particular has seen a large spike.

“The site has grown exponentially, and it’s thanks to the turbulent economy and increase in house prices that has left many people financially crippled, unable to divorce should their marriage hit the rocks.

“So, they seek the only other viable alternative that they have: an affair. It’s cheaper than a divorce, and it’s safer than ever before.”

“This is most evident in southern towns, with Royal Tunbridge Wells, Guildford, High Wycombe and Ashford, to name but a few, all ranking near the very top of the Index.”

“The official Infidelity Index 2017 can be viewed at www.infidelityindex.co.uk.”

Intelligent people are more likely to cheat, especially women

  • Intelligent people are more likely to cheat, new research has found
  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, studied the educational qualifications of 1,000 men and 1,000 women on its site, with 76% of women holding a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared to 65% of men.
  • 70% of men and 72% of women also worked in senior roles in, averaging £76,000 and £68,000 a year respectively.
  • Smarter and more successful individuals are much more attractive, meaning that they’re more likely to be desired by others; they have more opportunity to cheat
  • As for women, with so many being more financially stable than ever before, they’re less dependent on their significant other than they’ve ever been, so the risk of an affair is far less.

Bigger brains, bigger libido; intelligent people are more likely to have affairs, and women even more so.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, studied the educational qualifications of 1,000 men and 1,000 women on its site, with as many as 76% of women holding a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared to 65% of men.

Education, however, was not the standalone factor when it came to determining just how intelligent someone was.

The website also looked its members to find how many spoke more than one language (20% women, 9% men) and how many ran their own business (55% men, 48% women).

While that leaves plenty who don’t run their own business, 70% of men and 72% of women worked in senior roles in their respective professions, averaging £76,000 and £68,000 a year respectively.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains the link between a big brain and a bigger propensity to stray:

“Smarter people are immediately more attractive,” he explains.

“A big brain is a turn on for so many, and when you accompany that with a big salary, the allure of success means that smarter people find themselves in situations where the opportunity for temptation is greater than that of their less intelligent and less successful counterparts.”

“Intelligent, successful people also have the disposable income to be able to afford a little bit on the side, while their important job affords them the perfect excuse of ‘working late’ so they can sneak out for a secret rendezvous.

“They’re also natural problem solvers, better negotiators, and tend to take calculated risks, so, if their marriage hits the rocks, and they cannot – or do not – want to upset the applecart at home, they’ve got no problem in exploring their only other option: an affair.”

“As for the rise in women cheating, you can thank the increase in the amount of women choosing to focus on their careers, with children coming into the equation later in life, if at all.

“With more financial stability, they’re less dependent on their significant other than they’ve ever been, so the risk of an affair becomes far less.”

More Women Are Cheating Than Ever Before, and The Career Woman Is More Likely to Cheat Than Anyone Else

 

  • Women between 35 – 47 who earn £50,000 a year, and have got a university degree under their belt are more likely to cheat than anyone else
  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, studied over 2,000 female profiles on their site to find what the average mistress looks like
  • 60% of those 2,000 women said that female empowerment was a large part of their decision to have an affair
  • 75% said that they weren’t economically reliant on their husband, so the threat of divorce is no longer a barrier to cheating
  • More women are cheating than ever before, too: the site saw over 35% more women register in 2016 compared to 2010, and as much as 70% more than in 2006

Is there a pattern – some rhyme or reason – behind cheating? For women, maybe. New research suggests that if you’re a woman between 35 – 47, earn around £50,000 a year, and have got a university degree under your belt, you’re more likely to cheat than anyone else.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, studied the profiles of over 2,000 women on their site to find any pattern behind what the modern day mistress might look like.

Middle-aged, well educated and solvent women typify the modern day career woman, and it’s the rise of this career woman that is seeing more women cheat than ever before.

This is compared to ten years ago, where not only was there was no pattern or theme to connect cheating mistresses, but the number of women cheating in general was far, far less.

The site saw over 35% more women register in 2016 compared to 2010, and as much as 70% more than in 2006.

But why? A large part of it is down to female empowerment, with 60% of the 2,000 women surveyed stating that they realised that they no longer needed to be second-best in their relationship; if their marriage hit the rocks, they felt motivated to do something about it.

More importantly, women are, on average, earning more money than ever before, meaning that the threat of divorce isn’t what it once was; they know that, should the worst case scenario come to fruition, they won’t be left economically ravaged – they’re not as reliant on the breadwinner, because there’s a good chance that they are the breadwinner – 75% said that this was the case.

“Women have evolved far beyond the lonely, stereotypical housewife of 50 years ago,” said the site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant.

“While gender pay gap issues still exist, women are earning more money and are more empowered than ever before, meaning that they can comfortably bulldoze past what is the biggest barrier to cheating for so many people.

“They’ve come to realise that, if their marriage hits the rocks, why should they have to put up with it? They shouldn’t, and they don’t.”
