Is your spouse cheating on you. Cities like Chandigarh, Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai rank high among the couples wanting to cheat on their partner. About eight lakh married Indian men and women, with the largest percentage from the tech hub of Bengaluru, have registered on an extra-marital dating app — Gleeden. Chandigarh too is not far behind in this list.
Gleeden has substantial evidence that the New Year’s resolution of thousands of Indians is to commit infidelity or flirt.
In the first week of January, when couples resumed work and children’s vacations ended, traffic on the app exploded.
In November of 2019, the most number of men on Gleeden were from 19 cities. These are Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, Gurugram, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Lucknow, Kochi, Noida, Vishakhapatnam, Nagpur, Surat, Indore and Bhubaneswar, respectively.
While for the women on Gleeden, it was: Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, New Delhi, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, Gurugram, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Kochi, Noida, Lucknow, Indore, Surat, Guwahati, Nagpur and Bhopal, respectively.
A growth rate of more than 560 per cent showed the growing popularity of the extramarital dating app among individuals. These individuals look for meaningful encounters outside their wedlock, the French online dating community platform said.
The evidence comes in the form of a massive surge in their subscriptions right after the New Year.
In the first week of January 2020, Gleeden’s daily subscriptions shot up by over 300 per cent. This was in comparison to the previous two weeks.
Furthermore, the number of new subscriptions in the first week of January 2020 was over 250 per cent of the entire month.
The same trend was followed in January 2019. In the first week, Gleeden’s daily subscriptions shot up by 295 per cent compared to the previous two weeks.
