A call has been made for people willing to catch out unfaithful partners this Christmas, offering successful applicants £60 per hour to work as a ‘Professional Honey Trapper’.
Online local services marketplace, Bark.com, is advertising for the role after research allegedly revealed that a third of people will cheat on their partners over the festive period.
A season of infidelity?
According to the website’s findings, the majority of affairs start at the work Christmas party, while relationship counsellors revealed they see a 47 per cent increase in requests for cheating-related counselling in the three months following Christmas.
Their research also revealed the main reason for partners’ suspicions were finding text messages from unknown numbers, and their partners arriving home at irregular times from work.
Kai Feller, Bark.com co-founder, said, “Everyone has a very personal idea of what constitutes cheating, so we wanted to launch a service that could help people catch partners out at every stage – from flirty messages to full-blown infidelity.
“Christmas can be a stressful time for couples, so we’re hoping this service can help put people’s minds at rest, or help them make a clean break for 2019.”
What does the role involve?
According to the job advert, those who sign up for the honey trapper role must be comfortable employing seduction techniques to lure people into engaging in activity that their partners have deemed as cheating.
The cost of the service is estimated at £60 per hour. However, as with all services from the online marketplace, prices are set by individual providers.
How do I apply?
Those interested in the job can apply online, but applicants must be aged 18 and over.
It is also recommended successful applicants meet with prospective clients beforehand in order to agree terms, payment and boundaries for cheating in advance.
