When men search for the "other woman," here's who they have in mind.

Tiger Woods cheated on Elin Nordegren with a string of mistresses for several years.

Ashton Kutcher cheated on Demi Moore with 22-year old Sara Leal.

And recently, Ben Affleck allegedly cheated on Jennifer Garner with the nanny.

All led to divorce.

With all this hullabaloo of these huge names in the world of celebrities cheating on their wives, we can’t help but wonder: What is it about these "other women" that make them so attractive to the men who already have gorgeous wives? Why would you want a woman other than Jennifer Garner?!

The dating site wanted to get to the bottom of this phenomenon to find out what makes a woman the perfect mistress. Seeking Arrangement is the world’s largest online-dating website that matches wealthy benefactors seeking "mutually beneficial relationships" with attractive members. According to the press release, nearly two out of five men on their site are married men.

"Arrangements are ideal for these men due to the discretionary nature and ability to customize their experiences with mistresses based on individual needs," says the press release.

Using data from these 468,000 married men’s searches and messages, which include desired physical attributes, occupation, age, ethnicity and marital status, the study was able to concoct an image of the perfect mistress.

For many men, the perfect mistress is:

  • Between the ages of 25 and 31 years old.
  • 61 percent desired blondes
  • 47 percent prefer green eyes
  • 33 percent like an athletic build.
  • 32 percent wanted a woman with a 32D.
  • Caucasian women were the most popular at 32 percent, followed by Asian women at 30 percent.

In terms of personality, according to data on the top keyword searches, men also look for women who are open minded, sensual, energetic, and — get this — like yoga. They prefer these women to be single and a shocking 86 percent prefer them to be college graduates and students with Bachelor Degrees.

"The woman illustrated in the study is mature enough to understand the dynamic of an affair, but still young enough to have a youthful exuberance," said Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO in the press release. "Plenty of men seek a mistress as the spark outside of wedlock and for some men, the perfect catch is in the form of a yoga loving student."

So basically, unfaithful men want a mistress who's a blonde-haired or Asian Xena: Warrior Princess, old enough to cater to their adult needs, and young enough to make them feel like they're 21 again.
