Date.com Relationship Poll Finds Men More Trusting Than Women
Renee Zellweger, in the new hit flick Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, resorts to Bond-like methods of spying when she suspects that her paramour's new drop-dead-gorgeous-with-legs-up-to-there colleague is interested in getting her man out of the courtroom and into the bedroom. Using this scenario, Date.com, one of the leading online dating services, asked its members to weigh in on how they would react.
The majority of members agree, offense is the best defense. To prevent a mate from potentially straying, 37% of women responded that they would kick sex up a notch in the hopes that, if their man was getting it at home, he wouldn't go looking for it elsewhere. Surprisingly, 26% of women wouldn't do anything! Trusting their partners 100%, the sudden presence of a modelesque office mate didn't even raise their blood pressure!
On the other hand, majority of men (37%) claimed to trust their partners, while 30% would send a resounding Hands Off message via littering their sweetie's cubicle with I Love You cards, stuffed animals, flowers, and chocolates. While only 23% chose increased sexual activity as the method of choice to keeping their ladies faithful, 10% would become super-sleuths looking for any signs of cheating.
