- 36% of married women are using ‘Christmas shopping’ as an excuse for a festive fling this Christmas
- Christmas shopping is the perfect cover, affording the adulterer all the time and freedom they need for a salacious rendezvous
- The tried and true excuses of ‘going to the gym,’ ‘meeting with girlfriends’ or even ‘working overtime’ weren’t as popular as expected, receiving just 9%, 6% and 5% of the vote respectively.
- The results come as a result of a survey of over 500 women on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people
A seemingly innocent round of Christmas shopping could be hiding something much more sinister. That’s according to new research from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, who surveyed over 500 women on their site.
36% of respondents said that they’d used Christmas shopping as an excuse to slip out and meet their extramarital lover.
The tried and true excuses of ‘going to the gym,’ ‘meeting with girlfriends’ or even ‘working overtime’ weren’t as popular as expected, receiving just 9%, 6% and 5% of the vote respectively.
Christian Grant, spokesperson for the site, explains why married women are shopping for something a little different this Christmas:
“No matter who you are or where you’re from, Christmas shopping is the perfect cover for an undercover rendezvous.
“A combination of holiday days, children off of school and some generally poor weather makes the classic excuses a little less believable – not so Christmas shopping.
“To do an extensive round of ‘shopping’, you’ll need plenty of time of course.
“You also might want to travel a little further beyond your local parade of shops. And, if you don’t get everything you wanted the first time around, you can go again another day and do it all over again.
“As long as you don’t return home completely empty handed from your ‘shop’, you’re likely to get away with it every single time.
“The only thing worth keeping in mind is any inexplicable transactions that may appear on your bank statement – visits to hotels or payments for a meal for two people are best avoided if possible; cash is your friend.”
