1. Back Bay
AshleyMadison.com started in 2002 and has grown to 13 million members in 22 countries with 8 million in the United States, according to a release from the website.
According to AshleyMadison.com founder and CEO Noel Biderman, “Who you are is strongly related to where you live. Each neighborhood has a personality and the people who live there tend to identify strongly with that. The question everyone is asking is does the community impact the people within it, or are certain personality types drawn to those areas?” Next
2. Beacon Hill
Biderman said the affluent neighborhoods of Back Bay and Beacon Hill topping the list fits with trends in other cities, as well as the often-reported extramarital affairs of celebrities and politicians.
“Those lifestyles come with so many more opportunities as opposed to a traditional lifestyle,” said Biderman, pointing to time couples spend apart and financial independence of both partners. “An affair isn’t always a cheap undertaking,” he said. Next
