Infidelity is often the pitfall of an imperfect marriage, but is there such thing as the perfect mistress? Dating site SeekingArrangement.com reveals the top characteristics married members look for in the “other woman.” The Perfect Mistress study reveals the women they seek are Caucasian with blonde hair and green eyes.
Blonde students with green eyes who enjoy yoga could be ideal mistress material for a married man. According to new data, women with these types of attributes are what adulterous men searched for most often.
Nearly two in five men on dating site, SeekingArrangement.com, are married. Arrangements are ideal for these men due to the discretionary nature and ability to customize their experiences with mistresses based on individual needs.
SeekingArrangement.com collected data from married men’s searches and messages. The data included desired physical attributes, occupation, marital status, age, and ethnicity, as well as keywords used most frequently in searches.
According to the study, most married men prefer a mistress between the ages of 26 and 31 years old. Aesthetically, women with blonde hair, green eyes, and an athletic build were the most popular among men. Philandering spouses sought out females that were “open minded,” “sensual,” and “energetic” in keywords searches. And while Caucasian women were the most desired ethnicity, Asian women came in a close second.

“The woman illustrated in the study is mature enough to understand the dynamic of an affair, but still young enough to have a youthful exuberance,” said Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO. “Plenty of men seek a mistress as the spark outside of wedlock and for some men, the perfect catch is in the form of a yoga loving student.”
“The Other Woman” came about during the same time that arranged or advantageous marriages became a part of social culture. Men commonly cite emotional dissatisfaction as the primary reason for cheating, and 25 percent of husbands admit to having sex with someone other than their spouse, according to the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
