AshleyMadison Reveals “Cheaters Cheat For Disappointingly Predictable Reasons”
GQ featured an article referring new data compiled from the most popular dating site for people looking for extramarital affairs, AshleyMadison.com.
According to GQ…cheaters cheat for disappointingly predictable and unentertaining reasons, such as…”because they’re rich and they just want to, okay?”
AshleyMadison surveyed 53,000 members and revealed that “80.3 percent of male cheaters and 72.3 percent of females out-earn their spouses, and 81% of males and 77 percent of females spend more than $500 on their cheating partners. By comparison, only 47 percent of men surveyed and 40% of women spend as much on their spouses.”
AshleyMadison’s founder and CEO, Noel Biderman, says, “We were not entirely surprised by the findings since cheaters are often the well-connected earners who have the means to do what they want.”
Another interesting tidbit. Over 50% of the cheaters have 300+ LinkedIn connections. And according to GQ, it’s “because that’s the kind of people they are. People who really enjoy spending time on the website LinkedIn. You know, super exciting people.”
