While many people are proud when their state gets ranked highly on a list of best places to live or work, you may not be so happy if your home state ends up on this list.

A new survey has ranked the top 20 cities in the United States for infidelity, and some states, like Florida, Ohio, and Minnesota, ranked higher than others.

The data comes from the more than 70 million users on, fittingly, Ashley Madison, the dating site whose slogan is, "Life is short. Have an affair." The company has been called "a business built on the back of broken hearts, ruined marriages, and damaged families," because it encourages married people to find love elsewhere.

Here is the top 20 list of cities for infidelity:
1. Orlando, FL
2. Miami, FL
3. Atlanta, GA
4. Las Vegas, NV
5. Cincinnati, OH
6. St. Louis, MO
7. Boise, ID
8. Saint Paul, MN
9. Minneapolis, MN
10. Tampa, FL
11. Buffalo, NY
12. Spokane, WA
13. Pittsburgh, PA
14. Denver, CO
15. Cleveland, OH
16. Anchorage, AK
17. Colorado Springs, CO
18. Baton Rouge, LA
19. Tucson, AZ
20. Reno, NV

The ranking was compiled last year from surveys sent to Ashley Madison users, and found that 64% of respondents said they had affairs​ amid the pandemic.
