When you think of Michigan and dating, what are your thoughts on how how many couples in the Mitten are cheating? As it turns out, not one Michigan city even made the top 20 in America for having people who cheat on their significant others. Go us! That said, if you’re looking to find love across the U.S., the following cities are the ones to avoid, according to a new study.
MyDatingAdviser.com has put together a study looking at various categories to determine the rankings of the most unfaithful cities in America. For the study, they compared 200 of the largest cities in the U.S. across a handful of key categories, including relationship and life satisfaction; cheating intent; and affair activities. Other factors that went into the ratings included marriage, divorce and separation rates; the number of cafes and bars in the area; and how often people search for affair hookup websites on Google.
“While most would assume that bigger cities probably produce more cheaters per capita, this data shows us what we were already aware of; cheaters are everywhere, and infidelity can happen anywhere – in large cities and small ones,” the study states. “It’s not singular to Florida, nor is it removed from quieter states like Pennsylvania or Arizona. And for what it’s worth, cheating comes in many forms and may look different for one person than it would for another. It can happen in marriages, emotionally, and just because of sudden circumstances…that have little to do with that person’s current relationship.”
As for Michigan, we have one city, Detroit, in the top 30. The Motor City comes in at No. 27 on the list. Grand Rapids also makes the list at No. 84. If you’re looking for love, the following cities are apparently not the best places to do so. That said, we know these studies can be off, so don’t get too skeptical if you meeting someone in these towns. I can see it now. “Hey, I really like you, but you live in one of the top cities for cheaters in America, so you’re probably a cheater, and I don’t want anything to do with you.” Yeah. That’s won’t go over well. Find the full study here.
