As the results of our latest poll on food and restaurants revealed, choosing where to go for an extramarital affair can be hard to do. According to the results, most people like to stick to chain restaurants, but which chain restaurant should you pick and how far away from home should you go?
The common wisdom still applies here, you don’t want to go to a place that’s too close to home or where it’s likely that you’re going to meet people whom you know. When having an affair it’s best to step outside of the community that you’re a part of unless you have an open marriage in which your spouse knows that you’re having affairs.
This rules out a few key places. You don’t want to have your extramarital affair dinner too close to where you live or where you work. We would suggest going to some place completely new in order to avoid being recognized. You don’t want to go to a restaurant where you’re a regular simply because there is too much of a chance of you getting caught. Now this may seem like simple advice and it’s true that this is common sense, but you’ve got so much on your mind with your marriage that it can be easy to just default to what is easy.
You don’t want to do this when it comes to having your extramarital affair since becoming complacent is one of the easiest ways to get caught.
So here are a few things to keep in mind when you’re choosing your spot for your affair dinner.
Easily the most important thing to keep in mind you need to make sure that you’re not taking them to a McDonalds, but also keeping far enough away from your regular haunts that you won’t draw attention to yourself. Generally places that are more for travelers or that are on the outskirts of town are ideal for going on a dinner date with an affair. We would suggest going to a popular chain restaurant rather than a smaller, more homey and intimate location simply because the chains tend to have more business going through them thus making it harder to pin point who you are and who you were with.
You’re going to want some place that isn’t brightly lit. It doesn’t need to be a dive by any means, but you want to keep a dim kind of atmosphere going. The upside to going to a chain is that most of the chains that were listed as the most popular places for an affair with Canadians are also places where people go for business dinner meetings as well. So if you get caught you can always say that your affair partner is a client that you’re talking to for business purposes. This is why you also want to avoid the more romantic places or restaurants that are clearly geared toward couples.
Just be smart about this. It’s much easier to believe that you have to stay late for work during the week then saying that you have to go out on a Saturday night with a client. While the weekends have the benefit of being busier and thus making it harder for you to get caught, the idea that you’re going out with your boss for a business meeting on a Saturday night is much less plausible and brings up doubts no matter how careful you are. Keep your meetings to the middle of the week and keep them early so that you’re home at a reasonable time. You don’t want to come tripping in through the door at 1am to have to explain to your spouse why you look like you’ve been out partying and why a business meeting could have taken seven hours to have.
