London: A study has claimed that though men may have the reputation for straying, it is women who are more likely to get caught up in love triangles.
The poll of 2,000 people found that almost a quarter of women were romantically involved with more than one person at a time, while just 15 per cent of men were involved in two-timing.
And of those love triangles, about 18 per cent started on social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter.
The poll also showed half of them believed you could be in love with more than one person at a time.
And high earners are more likely to stray than those on lower wages.
Jo Hemmings, a relationship psychologist, said that while male love rats may be the biggest cheaters, driven by lust, opportunity and a misguided sense of entitlement, it is women, who tend to have a more complex view of relationships.
