No one wants to think about what it would be like to be on the other end of an affair. I don’t think many would really think too much about planning out having an affair, but I know that does happen.
It’s evident in dating sites such as Victoria Milan, which is an online dating site for married and attached people seeking an affair. No judgement, I mean, I have no idea what’s going on in their lives, but to me it’s a no-go when it comes to my relationship – a deal-breaker.
The people at Victoria Milan just published the results of their latest survey, which asked 3,256 cheating women who are members of their website who the first person they cheated with was. Their results are interesting, but not too surprising.
Read the 8 most common groups of people a woman is likely to have her first affair with:
1. The Neighbor
For those who participated in the survey, 3% shared they had their first affair with their neighbor. That’s risky!
2 The Friend’s Partner
That’s like the ultimate BFF NO-NO, but the survey showed that 6% of the women said that’s who they had their first affair with.
3. The Partner’s Friend
That has to be a big break of the Bro Code, right? This survey said that 9% of women cheated on their man with his friend.
4. A Friend
I do believe that you can have a friend of the opposite sex and nothing could be going on, but for 10% of those in the survey, it turned to a first affair.
5. Online Flirt
There are some people who believe that flirting, especially online, is harmless, but for 16% of the participants in this survey, that flirting turned into their first affair
6. A Stranger
Random strangers on a night out turned into the first affair for 18% of women in this survey.
7. A Colleague or Boss
This is the number one person who women reported to have their first affair with, and I can’t say that I am surprised. 38%, a huge jump, of those surveyed said this is the person they had their first affair with.
8. The Remaining Others
The last 2% of the survey participants checked off the “other” category – not sure what that leaves, but maybe someone in your partner’s family? Ouch!
