Head West

‘(Go west) Life is peaceful there.
(Go west) Lots of open air.
(Go west) To begin life new.
(Go west) This is what we’ll do.’

Perhaps we should all listen to Village People’s famous lyrics and actually ‘go west’! As shown on EliteSingles’ map, America’s most monogamous men certainly seem to live in the west, specifically Arizona! Perhaps it’s the unbeatable sunsets and beautiful scenery in the state that brings men’s romantic sides out as Scottsdale and Tucson secured the top spots for monogamy, making Arizona America’s most monogamous state for men. Ladies, it’s time to head west!

EliteSingles Psychologist Salama Marine gives her take on the matter:

‘Unfortunately, many women have been cheated on in the past which has led them to doubt the existence of men who believe in monogamy. Being cheated on is horrible and unsurprisingly, it does make many people question the fidelity of men in general. But they shouldn’t allow it to let them lose faith in love! While many women have been unlucky enough to have been cheated on by someone they trusted, there are actually still plenty of men out there who do value monogamy and want to build a lasting and loving relationship. This study demonstrates this.’
