Disturbing dating survey reveals COVID hasn’t stopped cheating partners

Cheating partners are more rampant than the COVID pandemic and a recently released dating survey reveals disturbing data. It seems like COVID-19 isn’t the only thing on the rise. While lockdowns and social distancing should be making adultery much harder, the global pandemic’s effects on relationships is driving even more couples to be unfaithful.

A poll conducted by Dating.com surveyed 2000 of its US readers discovered more than half the participants believed their husband or wife had cheated since early March 2020. Nearly a third of those surveyed admitted they’d cheated on their partner with old flames they’d reconnected with.

Closer to home, the Daily Mail released an article reporting the shocking statistics that 17,000 Australians per day were signing up for the controversial website Ashley Madison during lockdown. The website boasts that more than a database of 32 million disloyal spouses, first appeared in the spotlight when a data breach saw usernames and emails publicly released by hackers in August 2015. After analysing their website traffic and data they recently revealed Australia’s top cities where disloyal partners seem are the most rampant.

Did your Australian city make the top 3 list for cheaters?

If there were prizes for coming first, this is not one title you should be proud of winning. Albury took out pole position for disloyal spouses. Coming in second was Coffs Harbour and then Newcastle, while Queensland topped the list for online cheating. Chief Strategy Officer for Ashley Madison, Paul Keablewe told the Daily Mail that the adultery website provides an alternative pathway to divorce, helping couples preserve their marriage. (He can’t be serious!).

According to data from a General Social Survey, husbands were more likely to have sex outside marriage than the wife: 20% of men and 13% of women reported that they’ve had extra martial affairs.

How to spot a disloyal husband or wife?

Background Checks and Disloyal Partner Investigations

Often people who have been cheated on in previous relationships may find it hard to trust new partners. Before you get involved and risk your heart being broken again, a background check on a blossoming romance may be able to raise any red flags prior to letting down your walls, moving in together or sharing finances.

This is becoming increasingly more important in a digital age, where potential suitors can hide behind the comfort of a keyboard. (You’ve watched MTV’s Catfish right?) Whether you’ve met someone by swiping right on an app, had someone slide into your DMs or you’ve met while socially distancing at a pub, a background check or infidelity investigation can save you from a world of heartbreak. This can be carried out confidentially. Your new beau doesn’t even have to know we’re checking him out. Our background checks extend beyond the scrolling through social media accounts and doing Google image searches. Anyone can do that!

Missing Person Investigations

There are numerous reasons you may require a missing person investigation. Sometimes you may be wanting to track down an ex to pay child support, find a child you gave up at adoption or more sinister circumstances—go missing without any trace and Police and Search and Rescue have ceased searching, but you still need answers
