Illicitencounters.co.uk has released data that suggests those working in the transportation and logistics industry are more likely to manage an affair than other professionals - due to their impeccable time-management skills. They also have more legitimate excuses to use if things should not go to plan.
The site plays host to around 4,000 professionals in the transportation and logistics industry. Sara Hartley, site representative, suggests that married people working in these fields are more likely than ever to be seeking out affairs.
The economic crisis has had a profound affect on our site. Those working in the transportation and logistics industry are currently experiencing a lot of cut-backs that means more unemployment, tighter deadlines, underfunding. These things can cause pressure at home, which is the main reason men and women have affairs.
Those in this industry have an advantage in that their jobs involve a great deal of scheduling. A successful affair requires planning, time-management, to avoid getting found out.
Sarah Symonds, who has alledgedly had affairs with several celebrities, is quick to point out the importance of time-management for a successful affair, "In these economic turbulent times, scheduling an affair will become a challenge. Many men and women have also lost their number one alibi of 'working late at the office'
Since most affairs start at the workplace, I would expect many unhappy couples to now look on-line to replace that setting, and, whilst I don't condone infidelity, I guarantee that websites such as illicitencounters.co.uk will see a increase in members due to the sheer convenience and anonymity they offer."
