According to data released by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extra marital affairs site, Monday mornings is when more people message their flings.​Monday at 8am is the golden hour for affair-seekers.

The study found that in an average week the amount of messages that get sent between affair-seekers is 1.36 million. The research also revealed that the average amount of messages sent per hour is 8125, however, on a Monday between 8 – 9am this figure is 76992 or 6% of all messages sent in a one week period.

Members on the site also voted on the top tips to contact your lover without getting caught out.

The top three tips were –
1. Only ever contact your lover when you are in complete privacy.
2. Never call your lover by their real name, always refer to them as the same sex. (e.g. if her name is Christina call her Chris)
3. Don’t use your normal method of contact for your lover, have an alias email address and use a chat-app rather than texting.

Contacting your mistress or histress when you are alone makes sense, privacy ensures discretion. The last thing you would want is to speak to your lover in front of your spouse. Using a same sex code name may be used to further disguise who you are talking to – women don’t tend to be threatened by a husband’s male friend so this may help lower suspicion. Alternative methods of contact also allow affair-seekers added protection – the last thing you would want to do is send an iMessage to your lover that is synced with the family iPad.

Sandra a female member using the site said “Weekends are for family, that is my number one rule. But that also means I have little to no contact with my other lover during the time, and I really do miss him. Mondays I get the kids ready for school then my husband drives them up, as soon as he’s out the first thing I can think of is to check in with my part-time boyfriend and see how he’s been doing. It’s my favourite time of the week, butterflies in my stomach anxiously awaiting a reply!”

Claire Page spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said “You need to remember we have a lot of high flying professionals on the site, Monday 8am you’re either on your commute into work or already in the privacy of your office – perfect time to discretely send a much awaited message to your lover.

After the weekend cold-turkey of space from your lover, you’re sure to miss them come Monday! We’ve found that many of our members choose this time to keep their illicit love affair afloat and remind their lovers that they’ve been thinking about them.”
