According to a poll of 2,000 women conducted by research group One Poll, 43% of women have a back-up partner or “Plan B” in case their relationship doesn’t work out. The most likely candidate is an old friend, followed by exes, colleagues and casual acquaintances. The “Plan B” partner is typically someone a woman has known for at least 7 years. Additionally, 46% of the women polled also said they suspected that their partner might have a “Plan B” as well.

‘The saying that “the grass isn’t always greener” clearly isn’t deterring women of today. They understand that anything can happen and are ensuring they have a solid back up plan should things go sour with their current man’

‘With sites like Facebook and Twitter, it’s easier than ever to stay in touch with an old flame.

I wonder how many people are getting nervous just reading this. Do you have a Plan B?
