I do believe that it is likely that outmatings are less common amoung ERs than among the general population. For one thing, we are very cautious people. For another, we obviously have little difficulty suppressing immediate desires in favor of long term goals. And lastly, we have a lot to lose financially if caught in an affair.

I just went back to the faithfulness poll on ER.org that bbbamI posted. Thee numbers are not huge, but they do strongly suggest a much smaller % of unfaithful in this group than is apparently found in the population at large. Very close to exactly 20% of both men and women who report infidelity, as opposed to 60% of the men and 50% of the women in the population reported above.

Why not move somewhere where you can. I think even some places in the USA will accept you.

Infidelity and LBYM make for strange bedfellows.
