2008 Love Survey: What Is Love Today?


Is cheating as prevalent as it appears to be? AOL Personals wanted to find out the truth about infidelity, so we surveyed men and women and asked them the hard questions about cheating.

We broke down their responses by age group, to see if attitudes about infidelity differ. See where people your age stand on the issues, and share your thoughts about love, dating, and cheating.
