Extra-Marital Affairs Site Claims Accountants Are Kings of Romance Because Their Jobs Are Boring

Well this should make you feel better about your boring job. A website specializing in extra-marital affairs transparently calling itself Illicit Encounters says accountants are the most fun to hook up with:

A dating website that specialises in organising affairs for married people has said that accountants and those who work in the financial sectors are the most exciting people to go on dates with.

According to, accountants are most likely to find an interesting topic of conversation – largely because they realise their day job isn’t particularly interesting to most people.

Website spokesman Mike Taylor said: “Understanding that their job may not be the most interesting enables accountants to expand their repertoire of conversation topics and concentrate on their date, helping to make them feel more special.

Oh come on. We all know accountants’ eyes light up at Excel spreadsheets, not niche topics like philosophy and film.

The report goes on to say that those who work in the financial sector are one of the top five most common newcomers to the site, which suggests that millions of number-crunchers are desperate for thrills once they leave the office for the day.

Let’s just hope that they’re not cheating on equations as much as they are on their wives.

Equations? Guy, it’s accounting, not math. Still, I could see how a reasonable person might assume an accountant looking for a little on the side might be one of those unethical people we often hear about but do you think KPMG insider trader Scott London cheated on his wife?

Are we sure these people are actually accountants? Seems like something a sneaky engineer looking for some on the side would say in his profile.
