The Time Of The Year When People Cheat The Most
Love, Sex

Uh oh...

There’s a lot of information to be gleaned from research into people’s sexual habits, their proclivities for weird kinks, and even which months of the year an unhappy couple is most likely to be divorced.

But now, thanks in part to nosy researchers, we can also figure out which weeks a cheater is most likely to try their hand at an affair.

Thanks to research by “the first extramarital dating site created by women,” Gleeden, we now know that when people cheat, it’s most likely going to be the second Monday after Christmas, interestingly enough. So, if your spouse is looking to get a fling on the side, you might want to check if their calendars are suddenly booked the second week of January.

This year, that date was the ninth. For the Gleeden team, this is their busiest day of the year, which is pretty disconcerting, to say the least.

According to the site, they received a “more than 320 percent increase in registration on the second Monday after the holidays last year.” They also surveyed around 13,000 users and found out that 52 percent of them were more inclined to cheat during this time because they wanted to “regain their freedom” after the holiday season. That certainly makes all of that warm and fuzzy “family” holiday time just a few weeks before seem pretty shallow.

Solene Paillet, Gleeden’s director of communications, said that she isn’t surprised that this time of year is most likely to bring out the cheaters. She claimed that it’s just a basic expression of the human need for excitement and departure from routine.

Around this time of year, with the excitement of the holidays being over, it can be difficult for people to adjust back to their same old, same old lifestyles, which may prompt them to seek an extra-marital affair at a site like Gleeden.

However, if you’re thinking of cheating on your spouse, you should really reconsider a different approach.

Try introducing new sex play in the bedroom, taking a trip together, or reconnecting in another way during these off January weeks. Maybe you’ll be able to discover a fantastic way to be with your partner and switch up your routine instead of just being a dirty January cheater.
