Cheaters. We’ve all felt their wrath or have been been guilty of this selfish behavior. I personally have never cheated, but I was an accomplice to cheating. The man that I longed for had a girlfriend, but he also longed for me. We never had sex, but we did kiss passionately once or twice. Our connection was intense.
I helped him have an emotional affair. I was his emotional mistress.
When it was over, I vowed never to put myself in that situation again. I don’t want to have a hand in hurting anyone intentionally. She didn’t deserve that. Others women, however, actively seek an affair. And men find women much more attractive if they want to cheat.
An OkCupid study discovered that men prefer women who are looking to have an affair. Researchers collected 40 profile pics (20 women and 20 men) and placed each dating profile in four categorized groups: The Brazen Cheats, The Married Maybes, The Recently Taken and The Sincerely Singles. Two decoy profiles from each group were then planted into the five cities that won the AshleyMadison.com “most unfaithful city” award. They let the experiment bloom before collecting the total number of messages that each group received.
The female Brazen Cheats hit the jackpot. How many messages you ask? Within a week, women claiming to be cheaters received 336 messages compared to 262 messages received by The Sincerely Singles.
The female Brazen Cheats beat all other female category for total number of messages. That means that men are all in to be an accomplice of cheating. But women are also looking for some extra-marital fun. The male Brazen Cheats received the most messages amongst the male categories.
