According to the Victoria Milan website, workers in the finance, aviation, healthcare and business sectors are most vulnerable to moving away from their other halves.
Bankers, doctors and flight attendants are among the people most likely to cheat on their partners, according to a new survey.
But a local consultant is skeptical – and says workplace affairs are a disaster.
She said that social media in recent years have made things much easier, with it being easier to communicate with ex-partners, school friends or former colleagues than to hit on people.
However, a Merseyside counsellor at the charity Relate said it was wrong to believe that affairs are more common in any profession, as couples from a wide range of backgrounds seek help locally.
A survey of more than 5,000 women using the site worldwide found that the majority of respondents said that affairs with colleagues make work easier and more exciting – but much more difficult when they end badly.
Executives, managers, secretaries and other business people ranked fourth on the list.
The Victoria Milan site stated that bankers, brokers and analysts in the financial sector were the biggest fraudsters, followed by pilots and flight attendants, as well as doctors and nurses.
But 85% said the excitement wasn’t worth the risk – because of a hostile environment when things got out of hand.
The women surveyed said it was easier to find someone to connect with at work, it was easy to hide a relationship in the office, and it made work more fun and easier.
One in five respondents said that office gossip was a reason not to cheat at work, but only one in ten respondents said it would interfere with their work performance.
Gail Thorne, clinical supervisor and couples counsellor at Relate Cheshire & Merseyside, agreed that affairs are common in the workplace – but said they certainly didn’t make things any easier.
She said: “It’s much easier at work because you see people every day, drink Christmas drinks and there’s a social aspect to it.
“From our experience, I wouldn’t say that we have never seen a job more than any other. They seem to be everywhere and are as likely for men as for women.
“But when someone is older, there is an imbalance of power. Many organizations have policies to this effect, and sometimes the younger person loses his or her job after the end of the relationship or feels that he or she cannot stay.
