UK GUARDIAN -- June 5 -- 'The Infidelity Report' carried out by the Consumer Analysis Group, revealed that 1/3 of people think people were made to stray, over 3/4 consider infidelity more common than ever and nearly as many find it increasingly acceptable. Nearly a third of over 1,000 respondents didn't consider infidelity in a short-term relationship as 'being unfaithful' - a mindset that has been imported from the New York dating scene. Most women want to be in a relationship from day one but more and more men are trying to get away with [not settling down] so women are adopting the trend of dating more people too. Meeting more people has been made possible because of methods such as internet dating and speed dating. In the past you had to wait for single people to find you - now you can go out to find them. Mobile phones, email and text messaging were all cited as ways to conduct an affair safely. There was a disparity on what would constitute cheating. While some said flirty text messages and emails were too much, almost a quarter did not consider a 'lingering kiss' to be an offence, while 12% said you could only be 'unfaithful' if you were married.
