Study: Blondes More Likely to Cheat on Partners
One study drops a big blond bombshell.
Blondes may have more fun, but they might just have more relationship issues, too.
According to a recent study, hair color plays a surprising role in women's infidelity. When it comes to cheating, blond women make up a staggering percentage of the unfaithful, while a much smaller percentage of female cheaters are brunettes.
The study, carried out by support website CheaterVille.com, found that a whopping 42 percent of women who admit to cheating also happen to have blond hair. Redheads came in second at 23 percent, brown-haired cheating ladies made up 20 percent, and only 11 percent of women stepping out had black hair.
Apparently, there's a color spectrum for infidelity.
The website conducted the study based on the online postings submitted by a cross sample of its members.

And while founder James McGibney admits that this isn't the most scientific of studies — baldness or hair coloring were not taken into consideration — the results are still pretty interesting, especially with a number as high as 42 percent.
And let's not leave out the men. CheaterVille found that 40 percent of male cheaters have brown hair, 32 percent are raven-haired, 20 percent are blond, and a mere 5 percent are redheads.
Also interesting, McGibney discovered that 43 percent of both male and female victims of infidelity were brunettes.
He said of the findings:
"From Veronica vs. Betty to Ginger vs. Mary Anne, we've always favored one look over another. But now our research gives us a tempting look at how hair color might play a role in infidelity - and that's nothing to brush off."

a good majority of blonde women are very beautiful, but unfortunately most of them do fall into the catagory of married....with children's kelly bundy(played by current up all night superstar actor christina applegate, whom in real life is a medium brown long hair brunette).
take a look at Susanne summers(Christmas "chrissy" snow) from the very old 1977-1984 three's company(coincidentally loyal to her husband and a natural blonde). try heather thomas(from the very old 1980's stunt man show the fall guy) or even lydia cornell(too close for comfort 1977 to 1983). jenny lee harrison(the second roommate for three's company lasted two seasons and got replaced by pricilla barnes(now a b-movie horror actor). but if you want the epitome of dumb blonde take a look at pamela anderson(married tommy lee [ex-motley crue drummer] three times and does not seem to learn from her mistakes. the most loyal women are either lite brunette, raven haired, or deep brunette. the only reason why blondes are said to have more fun is, most guys are too taken by the "dumb girl bit" which women like pamela anderson know how to play-up to the T. so keep in mind the dumber they come off the actually the smarter they really are. the only dumb women are those whom never listen to their men, which are the ones whom have no man, but up to three kids, lots of boyfriends and an ex-husband paying blood money and child support to them.
This is comical and all the "serious" responses are just as funny. Some of yall need to get a grip and pull your undees out your bottoms. This isnt the gosple and it's a just a fun article and something to think about. And if your a hair dresser...this gives you a way to make more money and entice women to change their hair color. Bahahahaha

Are you in an affair without knowing it? Unless you’re a swinger, having sex with someone else counts as cheating. But then there’s the fuzzy area between friendship and infidelity—and chances are, your girlfriend sees those shades of gray as more black and white than you do. “Men aren’t as attuned to identifying ambiguous behaviors as cheating as women are,” says Daniel Kruger, Ph.D., a University of Michigan psychologist, who’s studied gender differences in definitions of infidelity. In other words, what you consider totally innocent could be her deal breaker.
