"Capricorns are typically serious, practical characters, so seeing them at the top of the 'affairs table' seems strange." says Sara Hartley, site representative. "But having an affair is about novelty, about doing something new. To capricorns, the idea of breaking the rules is particularly enticing, simply because it is not something they would usually do."

They are more likely to be able to make a marriage last, since they are able to appreciate the little things and take a head-on approach to problems. Finally, Sagittarians are good at balancing loyality with independence, and are less lilely to find themselves 'trapped' in a relationship." has been running since 2003, and receives around 345 new members a day.
