Soon married men looking to cheat on their wives will have fewer places to take their mistresses to.
Ashley Madison, an online dating service aimed at married people who are looking to cheat, just released a survey about where cheating spouses go to eat.
They surveyed 42,890 of their members in major American cities to compile a list of the top 10 most popular restaurants for cheaters to dine with their lovers.
They found that their members prefer to take their mistresses to popular chain restaurants such as the Cheesecake Factory and steak houses such as Ruth’s Chris that are at least 20 miles from their homes.
These steakhouses are large and don’t have a romantic atmosphere. They are also well-populated and, if someone sees you there, you can always say that your dining companion is a business associate.
Ashley Madison contends that married men don’t take their wives to upscale restaurants and that is why they can take their mistresses to those places. I disagree.
Many men take their wives to upscale restaurants, but not necessarily to restaurants in the business district where these restaurants are close to the hotels where they’ve taken their mistresses.
I noticed that they have on their list, The Red Lobster, a medium-priced seafood restaurant. Many is the time when I’ve had a busy day and I’m in my car driving home, I have stopped to eat there instead of going home and figuring out what to have for dinner.
Now that I know that the Red Lobster is a trysting place for lovers, I’m going to have to look around very carefully to see what I’ve been missing all these years.
Someone just recently mentioned the Cheesecake Factory to me and it sounded like a restaurant I might like. I even told my friend that I would try it the next time I was in the neighborhood.
Now that I’ve seen Ashley Madison’s list of popular dining places for cheating spouses, my natural curiosity will lead me to this restaurant in the near future. I want to see if I can spot the cheating spouses.
