Guys Admit How They Knew They Would Eventually Cheat On Their SOs
Relationships end for many reasons, but one you never expect is that the person you love is cheating on you.
Or, there might even be a chance you've suddenly found yourself morphing into the one who is cheating — something you never thought you would do.
If you're wondering what signs a person sees in themselves that warn they're going to cheat on their SO, check out the honest confessions of these seven guys:
He was never meant to find "the one."
Most of my guy friends were eager to find 'the one.' But not me, ever. I was always looking for the next best thing and was never fully content with the person I was with. That's why I ended up cheating on my girlfriend of six months (my longest relationship ever). I just don't think I was ever really meant to settle down.

His eyes were always roaming.
I would be out with my girlfriend, and then a hot women would walk by and my eyes would follow. I couldn't stop checking other women out. I guess that was the first sign I wasn't happy with her. It eventually led me to cheat, but I kind of knew that would happen, just because my eyes were always searching the room for anyone hotter.

He couldn't not approach girls.
Whenever I was out with my guys and they'd go off to talk to girls because they were single, I would go too. I was usually the one getting all the girls, and it was frustrating because I'd have to turn them down. Eventually, I just gave up on the turning down part and was sleeping with a different girl every weekend, while dating someone for over a year. I became a serial cheater.

It was in his DNA.
My dad was a cheater. My uncle was a cheater. My brother ruined two marriages by cheating. It wasn't a question of whether or not I was going to eventually cheat or not, it was just 'when.' I held out pretty well. I was with someone for a year before cheating. Then, it was like something snapped in my brain that made me realize, just because we were dating, didn't mean I couldn't date anyone else. So I did, on the side. That relationship ended just a month later.

He never deleted his dating apps.
I was dating this girl for eight months, and I never deleted my dating apps during that whole time. There were times I went on because I was bored, and I would chat with girls, which is kind of cheating, but not really. Because I didn't have an urge to delete them, I guess that showed I didn't have an urge to settle down. I ended up doing more than just chatting with the people I met on the dating apps.

He kept hanging out with his ex.
It was impossible to cut ties with my ex. We had broken up a year before I started dating someone else. But when I started dating the new chick, my ex was always calling and texting. It was like she finally realized I had moved on, and she wasn't cool with that. I didn't have the guts to tell her to leave me alone, so we ended up hooking up again. It ruined my relationship.
— Dan C., 28
He deleted his text messages.
I was always deleting texts and clearing my browsing history on my social media because I was talking to other girls. My girlfriend would occasionally check my phone, so I was doing that. I did eventually cheat on her, and she probably saw it coming, too. If I was happy in the relationship, I wouldn't be texting other girls or deleting my messages, either.
