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.”

‘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.”

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.”

Sleeping with a sex doll DOES count as cheating, new research reveals

Image result for love doll

  • 59% of married people think that sleeping with a sex doll IS cheating
  • They think this because they feel that their partner is denying them their love in favour of an inanimate object
  • The 41% who think sleeping with a love doll isn’t adulterous said that they didn’t see any tangible difference between the doll or the use of sex toys and watching adult films
  • 80% said that the doll alone wouldn’t stop them from wanting to have an affair
  • The results come from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, who surveyed over 800 over their members

With the technological advancement of love dolls in recent years, and with their popularity growing and growing, it begs the question, can sleeping with one be considered a form of cheating in the modern day?

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, sought to find the answer, surveying over 800 of their members, with over half (59%) saying, well, yes: having sex with a love doll IS cheating.

But why? While there is obviously no emotional relationship with the love doll, those who think it an adulterous act stated that making love was more than just a physical endeavour; it’s an expression of love, meaning that their partner sleeping with anyone (or anything) would be seen as denying that love to them to instead spend time satisfying themselves with an inanimate object, and nobody wants to feel second best to a piece of plastic.

The 41% who felt that sleeping with a love doll was fair game said that they didn’t see any tangible difference between the doll or the use of sex toys and adult films.

Members were also surveyed on whether sleeping with the doll would make them less likely to want to cheat on their partner. The answer was a resounding no, with as many as 80% claiming that a doll alone wouldn’t be enough to dissuade them from having an affair; 5% said yes while 15% were “unsure”.

“What’s apparent is that the majority are worried of feeling inferior to an inanimate object,” said the site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant.

“With that said, sex toys aren’t exactly new, so one could argue that there’s little difference between their partner using one of those or cuddling with an incredibly expensive bit of plastic.”

Welcome to Blue Wednesday, the Single BIGGEST Day of the Year for Affairs

Image result for affairs

  • The first Wednesday back after the festive break is the biggest day of the year for affairs
  • Dubbed Blue Wednesday, 4th January sees more couples looking for an affair than any other day of the year, as spending time with their partner over Christmas highlighted the cracks in their relationship
  • This is also the busiest week of the year for affairs, with IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, forecasting a 35% year-on-year rise in registrations
  • 70% of over 400 people surveyed said that being cooped up with their significant other over the festive period left them feeling suffocated and desperate for change.
  • Many unhappy wives and husbands have committed to making splitting up from their partner their top New Year’s resolution

2017 may have only just begun, but divorce lawyers across the country are braced for their busiest day of the year, as Wednesday 4th January is officially the biggest day of the year for affairs.

Dubbed Blue Wednesday, the 4th January sees more couples race to extramarital dating websites in search of an affair than any other day of the year, after an overdose of Christmas, the New Year, and most importantly, each other, hammered home the final nail in their marriage’s coffin.

This comes in what is set to be the busiest week of the year for affairs, with a forecasted 35% year-on-year rise in registrations for the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, IllicitEncounters.com.

In a survey of over 400 people who signed up to the site this year so far, 70% claimed that being cooped up with their significant other over the Christmas period left them feeling suffocated, irritable and desperate for change.

That, mixed in with the dreaded trifecta of heading back to work, dark days, and the miserable weather, has left husbands and wives across the country less likely to put up with the flaws in their relationship, instead relishing the opportunity to truly ring in the new year in style; with a saucy and salacious affair.

And there’s no better time to do it either, as many unhappy wives and husbands make their top New Year’s resolution to split and move on from their troubled relationship.

Christian Grant, the site’s spokesperson, explains why Wednesday 4th, and indeed January, is proving to be incredibly popular for affair-seekers.

“For all that Christmas does to bring families together, it inadvertently tears them apart. The festive period is the only time of the year that couples are forced to be together. And it’s that word – forced – that’s key, as the time spent together over the festive period only heightens difficulties in their relationship that had been previously subdued simply by virtue of the fact that couples spend enough time apart during the week – due to work amongst other things – to just about keep it all glued together.

This is supported by the fact that over a third (33%) of respondents said that the festive period made them realise that they had married the wrong person, while 65% said that their partner had changed significantly from the person they were when they first married them.

Grant adds:

“Christmas isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. We’re all severely poorer, a little bit fatter, and more likely to be at our wits’ end with our partner than any other time of the year.

“We also get caught up in the ‘new year, new me’ mentality – we’re arguably more motivated to make a change to our lives at the start of the year than any other point during it, so what you see is a large amount of people joining purely on impulse without much thought; it’s a ‘now or never’ mentality.”

Meet the People Who Cheated on their Partner… On Christmas Day

Love has no boundaries, but whether you’d call the following adulterers hopelessly romantic or greedy and lustful depends on your point of view.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, spoke to three of their members who managed to cheat on their partners, even on Christmas Day.

The three members (whose stories appear below) have been cheating on their respective partners prior to Christmas Day, but they each planned and executed an affair in arguably the most shocking of circumstances.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, expands:

“For there to be a clear breakdown in one’s relationship is bad enough. No one likes to be deceived, and we all want to patch things up when our relationship starts taking on some water.

“However, you’d think that there would be some exceptions… that the adulterers in question would have some moral lines that they simply could not cross; it’s the one day of the year you’d think would be a clear no go.

“Christmas is usually the loneliest time of the year for an adulterer, with their secret tryst spending an extended period of time with their significant other, but for these three people, Christmas Day was instead the perfect opportunity for a salacious get together that simply couldn’t be missed.

“It’s a damning indictment on the state of relationships today.”
Case Studies

Michael – 44 – London

“I’ve been seeing someone that I met on the site for the best part of 4 months. She was the one who initially suggested meeting up around Christmas. Fortunately, she lives nearby (though this has normally caused us more problems than it has provided solutions).

“I dismissed the idea of meeting her on Christmas for the obvious reasons, primarily because of the logistical difficulties. However, she suggested we meet early in the morning.

“This works for me, as I’m normally up early to go for a run, so my absence in the early hours (should my wife have woken up) could have been excused.

“Anyway, we met at a nearby day-use hotel that she’d booked in advance, did the deed, and on we went. Anyone who would have seen us leave the hotel that morning would have thought we were a loving couple who were celebrating Christmas in their own inimitable way, not two adulterers who’d just copulated.”

Elle – 31 – Nottingham

“My colleague and I (we work for the police) have been having an affair since May. We’ve had sex at work a few times in the past, but we normally like to be as far away from people we know as possible.

“However, he suggested that we both work the Christmas Day shift – things are generally little bit quieter – as it would be the last opportunity we would have to ‘see’ each other for a little while.

“To cut a long story short, we slept with each other a few times throughout the day where we could.

“There was something thrilling about it, but I have to be honest and say that it felt more wrong than cheating on my husband on Christmas.

“I’ve never kidded myself and thought that I wasn’t doing something bad by going behind my husband’s back like this – I suppose I’m just greedy – but I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t feel some regret after this; that’s one of the main reasons I’ve writtern [to you], to get it off my chest.”

Katie – 28 – Hertfordshire

“Every year I spend Christmas morning and lunch with my immediate family, before driving to my boyfriend’s house in Ashford to spend the evening with him. Obviously, that drive in-between is my window of opportunity. The man I met on IE is widowed, so his Christmas plans were relatively empty, so, I stopped off at his place on the way to Kent.

“Both men offer something (physically and emotionally) that other doesn’t, so I get the best of both worlds in that respect, though it’s normally tough to juggle both. In any case, the opportunity arose, and I couldn’t think of a good reason not to take it.”

2016 Was the UK’s Biggest Ever Year for Affairs…And Women Were Worse Than Men​

Image result for cheating

  • 2016 was the biggest year for affairs in the UK, new research has revealed
  • A record-breaking amount of married people (over 100,000) joined married-dating website IllicitEncounters.com in search of an affair
  • Interestingly, the majority of those (55%) were women, dispelling the myth that men sleep around to get notches on their bedpost and praise from their friends
  • The biggest cheating days of the year were May 21st, July 10th, July 22nd and November 18th
  • With less and less people getting married (and therefore having less to lose), 2017 is expected to be an even bigger year for affairs in the UK

2016 saw more affairs on record than any ever before, new research has revealed. Over 100,000 married people joined IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, during from January 1st to December 19th 2016, with more people engaging in illicit affairs than in any other year since 2003; this was up by almost 10,000 people on the previous year.

Interestingly, more woman than men went in search of an affair in 2016, making up 55% of all registrations in 2016 so far.

Keeping with women, over 30% of all female sign ups came from women between the ages of 31 – 40, while 22% were aged 21 – 30.

A further 19% were 41 – 50 years old, 15% were between the ages of 51 – 60, with the remaining 14% being over the age of 60.

Men between the ages of 31 – 40 also proved to be popular, making up 35% of all sign ups in 2016. 20% were between the ages of 41 – 50, 17% between the ages of 51 – 60, with 13% being between the ages of 21 – 30; the remaining 15% were aged 60 and over.

The most popular days for affairs in 2016 were May 21st, July 10th, July 22nd and November 18th.

May 21st and July 10th represented the two single biggest days of the year for female sign ups, with husbands around the country seemingly abandoning their wives to watch the FA Cup and Euro 2016 finals respectively.

July 22nd was the biggest day of affairs for the summer, with adulterers having one last summer fling before jetting off on holiday with their family.

Similarly, November 18th represented the final and biggest day for adulterers to cheat before the year’s end, with the Christmas festivities and familial responsibilities taking priority in the weeks afterward.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, expands:

“With more women looking to cheat than men, especially those between the ages of 21 – 30, it goes some way to dispelling the myth that blokes, especially young ones, sleep around to get notches on their bedpost and high fives from their mates – it seems that women are far worse.

“The stats also show that anyone of any age is susceptible to an affair. While recent research from the Office for National Statistics has shown a decrease in the amount of people getting divorced, the amount of people getting married has also significantly decreased.

“Part of that is down to the alarming lack of commitment shown by some couples – why would you want to get married if you’re wary of your partner cheating? Unfortunately, that starts a vicious cycle; it’s easier to cheat if you’re not married, because you’ve got so much less to lose.

“There’s no worry about who gets what from the fallout of a divorce, whether that’s the house, money or custody of the children, because the prospect of divorce doesn’t exist. That’s why we can say with a great degree of certainty that we expect to see even more people having affairs in 2017.”

Retail Workers Are More Likely to be Cheated On This Xmas Than Anyone Else

  • 15% of 800 members who registered on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, since the beginning of November said that they were married to someone working in retail
  • Retailers working long hours during the Christmas period has left their partner’s feeling lonely, hence the increase in the amount looking to cheat
  • In a separate survey of over 200 retailers on IllicitEncounters.com, 30% admitted to having previously cheated with a colleague
  • 10% also admitted to sleeping with a colleague during their place of work.

They’ll be working late hours to help spread the Christmas cheer, but behind their back, their partners are being naughty, not nice.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, surveyed over 800 people who registered to the site since the beginning of November and found that 15% of respondents were married to someone who worked in retail.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:

“Needless to say, it’s one of, if not the, busiest time of the year for those who work in retail. That means they’ll be working longer hours, taking on more shifts, and generally spending more and more time at work, and less and less time at home as a result.

“While it’s something that can’t be helped, that doesn’t stop the opposite number in this relationship from feeling lonely and without some much needed company.

“It’s only natural, then, that someone’s thoughts stray towards an affair, even if it’s something short-term until the Christmas period ends and their partner’s work routine returns to a state of normality.”

Interestingly, a scenario may develop where both parties are cheating on each other simultaneously.

In a separate survey of over 200 retailers on IllicitEncounters.com, 30% admitted to having previously cheated with a colleague, with 10% even sleeping with them during their place of work.

“It works both ways,” explains Grant.

“Again, while it isn’t the fault of the retailer, they too can’t help but feel detached from their partner. And when you’re cooped up with others for an extended period of time, you begin to forge friendships.

“If both you and your colleague both having similar feelings of loneliness, it’s easy to see how one thing can lead to another…”
