If you think than men are more apt to have an affair than women,do think again,for a survey has revealed it’s the fair sex who’re more likely to have a fling.
According to the survey,two-fifths of women admit to having cheated on their partners compared to just three in ten men — two fifths of cheats ended up kissing someone while out clubbing while one in four cheated with a colleague at work.
Fifty five per cent of women said they loved attention from men — and more than a third said men often get the wrong idea because they were so flirtatious. More than a third also claim their “minor indiscretion” happened by accident because their flirting got out of hand,the survey found.
It found that three fifths of women who have cheated have kissed someone other than their partner,while more than one in four have had sexual intercourse with someone else. A fifth of women admit they get a thrill from cheating on their partner,and despite knowing it is wrong want to do it again.
The survey also showed one in four women find complete strangers attractive and love the thrill of chasing them on a night out. And a further one in four said they couldn’t resist the temptation of a man in uniform,while almost one in five tend to cheat with people in authority.
According to the poll,women are most likely to cheat on a partner when they are a bit bored in their relationship,and one in five say it only ever happens when they’ve had too much to drink. But more than one in 10 claim they will never be completely monogamous in a relationship as life is short.
The survey,based on a poll of 3,000 adults,was conducted by Opera North to open their new season with the Mozart opera Cosi fan tutte,translated as ‘All Women Are Like That’ — a light-hearted comedy based on infidelity.
An Opera North spokesman was quoted by ‘The Daily Telegraph’ as saying,”The poll seems to suggest many women consider flirtatious behaviour as harmless and can easily forgive themselves the odd ‘indiscretion’.
“Women even go as far as claiming they didn’t mean to cheat on a partner,and simply ended up doing it by accident.”
