Men on OkCupid are ‘more likely to hit on women who are looking to cheat on their partner’
- A Recovery.org study has found more OkCupid users message self-confessed ‘brazen cheaters’ than singles
- More affair-seeking women were hit on than their male counterparts
Desperate singles are always told to play it cool to snag a date – but it’s a different story for the lucky in love.
According to a new Recovery.org study, men are more likely to hit on women online who are actively looking to cheat on their partner.
And the more brazen the cheating profile the better, with affair-seekers reportedly turned on by the prospect of readily available ‘fresh, immoral meat’.
For this experiment, 40 fake profiles (20 men, 20 women) were created on dating website OkCupid, using photos of real people, identifying themselves in one of four categories: ‘brazen cheaters’, ‘married maybes’, ‘recently taken’ and ‘sincerely single’.
The fake daters stated they lived in the most adulterous U.S. cities, as identified by married dating site Ashley Madison – Oklahoma City, Miami, Houston, Austin, Texas, and Washington D.C.
