If you feel like your special lady has lost that “loving feeling,” you may be correct. Almost 90% of cheaters are using their mobile devices to contact their lover, or “side pieces” as Drake would say– yet only 12% are scared of getting caught.
After surveying 11,050 of its cheating members, Victoria Milan – a dating website for attached and married people looking to cheat – was able to reveal shocking insights into the modern world of infidelity and the fact cheaters are getting more bold, taking more risks – and they aren’t worried about getting caught.
Three-quarters of people did admit they have a “slight fear” of being found out. But the most brazen are the cheaters who are sexting while their partners are home (23%), or even in the same room (64%). Only 13% claim they do not communicate with their lovers while their partner is around. Another 13% aren’t afraid at all that their digital dalliances might come to light.
Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said mobile devices have brought the cheating world to a whole new level.
“We know at Victoria Milan that often affairs remain a digital fantasy; in the world of mobile dating, a cheeky online flirt is enough to satisfy people. Moving this from the desktop computer to mobile devices means our members can sext from the office, the car, or as we’ve revealed, from the same room as their partner, and still keep their affair a secret,” Mr Vedal said.
When reached for comment, R&B legend Brian McKnight had this to say about side pieces:
“You’ll never be more, you’ll always be less. But there’s comfort in knowing you’ll always be second best. I already got a starter, but I’m looking for the rest of my team.”
