Back in August, our shopping habits were under scrutiny:
How to spot a cheating spouse? Check their shopping basket
Bored spouses looking for an extra-marital affair are more likely to shun the bargain bin in favour of more upmarket supermarket brands, according to a new survey.
Although the poultry and vegetable displays may not be the most romantic setting, researchers have found that the weekly food shop is for some a prime opportunity to catch someone’s eye while checking out the “deal of the week” at the same time.
Infidelity in aisle three: Is shopping at Waitrose a sign a chap is cheating?
Ladies, has your other half taken to shopping solo at Waitrose? Gents, is the woman in your life popping to Sainsbury’s a lot?
Then it seems you may have cause to worry about your relationship.
A survey has examined the shopping habits of those who are considering an extra-marital affair.
It found that the number one supermarket for such men is Waitrose, while for women it is Sainsbury’s. Tesco, Asda and the Co-op also featured prominently.
Who conducted the survey?
Dating website IllicitEncounters.com quizzed their 800,000 members to find out more about their shopping and cheating habits.
IllicitEncounters – an ‘extramarital dating’ website. It’s fair to say their users perhaps don’t reflect the habits of your average Waitrose shopper. What we’ve found, if we actually trust the results (and I wouldn’t, personally), is that users of an affairs website also shop at Waitrose.
What we haven’t found is that people who shop at Waitrose have affairs – and we especially haven’t found that shopping at Waitrose is a sign your spouse is having an affair. Which, universally, was the headline of the coverage.
