ATLANTA -- People in Cascade Heights and Decatur are more likely to cheat around metro Atlanta.

That's according to a website designed for people seeking affairs. AshleyMadison.com is a dating site for people who are already in relationships, and says there are 85,833 cheaters who live in the metropolitan area.

Based on the site's membership per capita, the most affair seekers live in Cascade Heights, with Decatur and Buckhead rounding out the top three zip codes.

ATL's Ten Most Popular Neighborhoods for Cheaters:
1. Cascade Heights 9.3%
2. Decatur 9.1%
3. Buckhead 8.9%
4. Ormewood Park 8.8%
5. Snellville 8.4%
6. Duluth 8.2%
7. Druid Hills 7.7%
8. Sandy Springs 7.6%
9. Marietta 7.3%
10. Alpharetta 6.9%

Atlanta divorce attorney Lauren Barrett says infidelity is an issue in about one-third of her cases. "Usually it seems to be women throwing themselves at married men," she said.

The site claims Duluth's members have the most affair partners, Marietta's members have the highest number of children, and 46% of Atlanta's philanderers are women with an average age 36.

According to AshleyMadison.com Founder & CEO Noel Biderman, "Those with discretionary income and freedom to travel are even more likely to stray."

Barrett says cell phone prevalence makes affairs easier to conduct, but also leave behind evidence.

"I have had cases where people have found out about an infidelity because they look at their spouses phone and they see naked pictures of their spouse," she said. "And they look to see where they've gone, and they've gone to some other man."

The second largest paid dating website has 25 million members in 35 countries, and brought in $120 million in revenue in 2013.
