Your Tango: The best European cities for business trip affairs.
According to a new survey, business execs have their favorite cities to cheat in while on the road.
If your partner happens to be going on a business trip, you may want to make sure they’re not headed to one of the following seven European cities.
Earlier this week, Gleeden.com, “the premier international dating website for married people,” released the results of a survey they conducted regarding the best European cities to cheat in while on a business trip. According to Reuters, in order to participate in the survey, users had to be between the ages of 30 and 55 with an income of at least 50,000 Euros ($70,782) a year.
As it turns out, the majority of these unfaithful business execs agree there is one place that trumps all when it comes to extramarital love on the road.
To see which city that is and how others measured up, read on.
More things fall in Berlin than just walls—namely, cheaters’ pants. Though the 950 married or committed Europeans who were surveyed were not supplied with a list of cities, Berlin was the seventh most commonly mentioned place to have a business trip affair.
Is that marriages we hear crumbling?
Ahead of Berlin was Switzerland’s second most populated city, Geneva. It makes sense that rich world-travelers like to rendezvous with their lovers here – both the quality of life and the cost of living are extremely high.
With so many sights to see—Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey—who wouldn’t fancy a tryst in London? Sure, all the married cheaters who meet up here are going against their vows, but as Austin Powers would say, there’s something “shaggadelic” about England’s capital. Yeah baby!
Those who work in the European Union travel to Brussels for business, but stay for pleasure. The capital of Belgium happens to be the headquarters of the EU as well as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which means it’s crawling with politicians, diplomats and other bigwigs who are in the mood to stray.
For an even steamier affair, more execs flock to Barcelona, Spain, where the restaurants, beaches, and apparently, hotel rooms, are hot, hot, hot! They can practice their Spanish as they troll the city looking for a lover.
The list grows warmer with Milan coming in as the survey respondents’ second favorite place to cheat. Perhaps what draws them is the rich culture or the incredible food… but it’s probably the attractive locals.
Ah, Paris. The City of Lights…. and the number-one city of cheating business execs, apparently! A whopping 52 percent of business execs who took Gleeden.com’s survey said that their favorite place to have an affair is the romantic home of the Eiffel Tower.
Whether the cheat out of loneliness or the sense of freedom that business trips allow, successful European travelers have made it pretty clear: Paris is the ultimate city for lovers.
