Facebook London, Aug 23 (IANS) Men may have been known for straying in relationships but the reality is women are more likely to get caught up in a love triangle, says a study.

Almost a quarter of women asked during the study were found to have been romantically involved with more than one individual at a time, while just 15 percent of the men admitted to two-timing, Daily Express reported.

Of those love triangles about 18 percent started on Facebook or Twitter.

In the survey of 2,000 people, it showed half of them believe one can be in love with more than one person at a time.

It was also learned that high earners are more likely to stray than those on lower wages.

According to Jo Hemmings, a relationship psychologist, while male love rats may be the biggest cheaters, driven by lust, opportunity and a misguided sense of entitlement, it is women, who tend to have a more complex view of relationships.
