I have always been a bit paranoid in my relationships. While my worries may be justified (apparently 1 in 5 Brits admit having an affair, which I think is more!) I should stillbe able to appreciate and enjoy my marriage.
I am not surprised at these statistics. With bombardment from the media about sex, dating apps and even cheating website like Ashley Madison or, in the UK, IllicitEncounters.com, how can someone fully trust their spouse?
This article explains how to build more trust in a relationship, for example say what you mean, and express your feelings. But that is my side, I… trust myself, what about my husband? What about him saying what he means and him expressing his feelings?
The phrase ‘I wouldn’t trust you as far as I could throw you’ resonates when it comes to Footballers- as they have been deemed the least trustworthy public figures over bankers, politicians, j. Seems as though Footballers can only be trusted to kick a ball! Research conducted by IllicitEncounters.com concluded that 91% of the 2,000 women surveyed admitted the first characteristic that comes to mind when thinking of footballers is ‘cheater’, before talented’, ‘ambitious’, ‘athletic’, ‘fit’, or ‘motivated’.
“It’s not difficult to see why the stereotype that all footballers are cheaters is so strong in Britain with the likes of Ashley Cole, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, John Terry, Peter Crouch, Franck Ribery and Carlos Tevez casually engaging in affairs,” said Clare Page, spokesperson for Illicit Encounters, “Men often follow examples of their boss, father figure or leader and their managers aren’t doing a great job of that – when the likes Arsene Wenger and Sven Goran Eriksson get away with it, they may think they can do the same.
“Some of our clients are high-profile athletes who are looking for escapism from their high pressured lives on our website. They have huge stress from their fans, captains, media and agents to always play perfectly, support the correct charities, say the right thing to the press and represent their best self at all time – they’re bound to crack under the pressure of the limelight. IllicitEncounters offers the best possible remedy to this pressure: discretion and hot affairs!”
