Residents of Vancouver have been engaging in extra-marital affairs in record numbers according to new data from AshleyMadison.com.
The dating site designed for people already in relationships has decided to reveal Vancouver’s least faithful neighbourhoods based on the more than 55,000 cheaters who live there.
According to membership per capita, the most affair seekers live in West Vancouver (replacing previous number one spot holder, Kitsilano), with Shaughnessy and Kitsilano rounding out the top three neighbourhoods for cheaters.
Top 10 neighbourhoods in Metro Vancouver where cheaters live
- West Vancouver – 9.3%
- Shaughnessy – 8.9%
- Kitsilano – 8.5%
- Downtown – 8.3%
- Burnaby – 8.1%
- Yaletown – 7.8%
- Surrey – 7.4%
- MacKenzie Heights – 7.2%
- Kerrisdale – 7%
- Richmond – 6.7%
Here’s some additional data the dating site dug up in their research:
- 44% of philanderers in Vancouver are female (average age 39)
- Adulterers in Burnaby have the most children on average
- Kerrisdale’s cheaters have the most affair partners
According to AshleyMadison.com Founder and CEO, Noel Biderman, affluence is a common element found on most cities’ top ten lists. “The proclivity to cheat often goes hand in hand with opportunity. Those with discretionary income and freedom to travel are even more likely to stray.”
