Relationships can be tricky at times, but at the end of the day, having someone who thinks the absolute world of you, and whom you think the absolute world of, is magical.
I reiterate the one in someONE, because if one of those people in the relationship decides to cheat and attach a life-sucking tumour to themselves in the form of a mistress or male-version-of-a-mistress, well, it's a world-ending feeling for their other half.
Therefore, the general consensus on cheating is that it is VERY BAD.
Just don’t do it.
When you’re in a relationship, sometimes the trust breaks down and you start to question whether maybe your partner isn’t loyal to you.
So, is there a way to know from the get go if the person you’re interested in could cheat?
According to new studies, there are five types of people who are more likely to cheat who you might want to keep your wits about.
This research focuses on the types of men most likely to cheat, so if you’ve been wondering what your woman’s up to - we’ll have to research elsewhere.
For now, here’s the latest findings from Ashley Madison (a dating site where people cheat…) and Illicitencounters.com.
According to Illicit Encounters, men who are taller than 1.8m are two times more likely to cheat.
Is this is a result of taller men being perceived as more attractive (according to scientific studies)? Maybe if they’re getting a lot more attention and don't have the right morals, they can’t control themselves.
Lovers of Rock
According to the research, his taste in music could be an indicator as to whether he’s the cheating type.
They found that 41% of people who cheat, or are inclined to, like rock music.
On the flip side, if your man likes rap music, it turns out he’s the most loyal of the bunch!
Men who work in IT are more likely to be unfaithful, according to research.
Does their excessive amount of time with tech and the online realm lead them to other things on the internet that their mums wouldn’t be proud of?
Does that then lead to relying too much on the online realm and forgetting the most amazing woman they already have, only to have some kind of mental wiring issue and go cheat?
If Their Age Ends In 9
Okay, so basically, whenever a man hits 29, 39, 49, 59, and so on and so forth, they’re more likely to cheat.
Proceedings of the Natural Academy of Sciences published a study saying exactly this.
Do they freak the hell out about entering another decade of life, thinking they’ve missed out on something good and go out galavanting around, only to eff up, realise their mistake, then come grovelling home to the great thing they’ve had all along?
If They’re French
According to sex brand Lelo, 75% of French people who participated in their survey admitted to having cheated on their partners.
Don’t fall for the accent.
According to a study from the University of Missouri, guys who spend a lot of time on Twitter are more likely to be unfaithful.
Steer clear of sliding into a Twitter obsessed guy’s DMs.
Guys Named Wayne
A rose might smell as sweet by any other name, but apparently a guy named Wayne doesn't.
Your Tango’s study revealed that in terms of relationships, 2000 women ranked Wayne as the least trustworthy name.
Not entirely behind this theory of a name determining how likely you are to cheat - if so, you better have a stern talk with your parents.
Have YOU had an experience with any guys like this who cheated?
