Survey Reveals The 10 Professions Where Women Are Most Likely To Cheat


About half of all adults will cheat on a romantic partner at least once in their lifetime. A recent study of over 5,000 women sheds more light on this statistic.

Apparently, the old adage “charity starts at home but infidelity starts at the office” is more than a saying but some old-school wisdom. More than 65% of respondents said their extramarital affair began in the workplace.

85% of respondents who cheated with a coworker expressed regret and that they would not do it again due to the havoc it could or did wreak on their personal and professional lives. Given the likelihood of her stepping out during working hours, it may come as no surprise that women in certain professions tend to cheat more than others. Keep reading to find out if your lady’s choice of livelihood should give you reason for pause.

Now, keep in mind that half of all women across various professions do not cheat. Just because your lady does work in one of these fields doesn’t automatically make her unfaithful.

10. LAWYER

 

Officers of the court come to 10th on our list. They tend to work very long, stressful hours in small groups giving them ample opportunity to bond. Lawyers are also very good with words and therefore have an easier time lying and maneuvering conversations.

9. COMMUNICATIONS

Women in the communications industry talk on the phone for a living. Between half the customers annoyingly flirting or angrily berating them, it’s easy to see how these women would want to let off some steam with an in-person coworker face to face.

8. STRIPPERS

Culturehook

Cheating is mostly about opportunity and it is the ample opportunity to bond privately with clientele and other staff that gives strippers the chance to cheat. Add alcohol-fueled environments into the mix and it’s a potential recipe for infidelity.

7. DJS

Culturehook

Similar to strippers, DJs work in party-like atmospheres ideally packed with people and booze. As the life of the party, the female DJ is often the center of attention wherever she goes thereby tempting her to stray.

6. ARTISTS

Culturehook

Artists are known for their free-spirited, bohemian approach to life… and love. That attitude plus a propensity towards narcissism makes artists susceptible to flattering advances.

5. ATHLETES

Culturehook

Like male athletes, female athletes are celebrated, revered and mobbed for attention by adoring fans. This attention, coupled with an athlete’s natural love of the physical, leads to a lot of tempting opportunities to cheat.

4. BUSINESS

Culturehook

There’s a reason they call it “business time”. Few things are sexier than seeing slip out of business attire into something more comfortable. That plus all the company business trips put coworkers in close quarters far away from home.

3. HEALTHCARE

Culturehook

Who didn’t like to play doctor as a kid? Jokes aside, those working in healthcare are plunged into high drama, literal life-or-death situations daily. Sometimes this intensity results in colleagues finding comfort in each other’s arms.

2. AVIATION

Culturehook

 

Finding a place to sneak around is about half of having an affair and aviation pros have that covered. There’s only so many flights one can take before the temptation to join the “mile high club” is too hard to resist.

1. FINANCIAL

Culturehook

Like the legal profession, the financial industry involves lots of stressful projects where small teams work around the clock under high-pressure deadlines. Financial professionals are also known for lacking moral scruples so cheating may seem like an acceptable release which is why they come in first place on our list.

While there’s no proven causation between employment in these 10 fields and infidelity, these professions do seem to provoke a fair bit of workplace hanky-panky.
