WORDS BY SIMON E. SMITH
If you work in finance, you’re not to be trusted. Or so the saying goes. But as a new study shows they’re may be some truth to that. According to research carried out by Victoria Milan – a site for married folk on the look out for an affair – these are the top nine occupations that use the site…
Financial (Bankers, brokers, analysts)
Aviation (Pilots, flight attendants)
Healthcare (Doctors, nurses)
Business (CEOs, managers, secretaries)
Sports (Athletes, instructors)
Arts (Musicians, models, actors, photographers)
Nightlife Industry (DJs, dancers, waiters)
Communication (Journalists, public relations, communicators)
Legal (Lawyers, secretaries, prosecutors, judges)
The poll involved surveying 5,658 women currently signed up to Victoria Milan who have cheated or are currently cheating. Speaking to The Mirror, the website’s founder Sigurd Vedal said, ‘The survey clearly shows that even though there’s a risk to your career, having an affair at work makes life a lot more pleasant.”
He went on to say, “At the same time, the majority of cheaters would steer clear of mixing work with pleasure - not because it damages their career, but because they are at risk of being found out, or will feel uncomfortable.”
Perhaps the two most interesting facts to come from this slightly dubious report are these;
Of the women polled, 21% said that if rumours in the office start, there is a more likely chance that your partner will find out.
However, that wasn’t enough to deter most people as just 10% were bothered about their careers, fearing that mixing work and pleasure could hamper their job performance.
If your partner is a banker that’s taking flying lessons and DJs at the weekend, you might want to look into that.
