Once A Cheater Always A Cheater: Science Says Cheating Is Repetitive


If your current partner cheated on his or her ex to be with you, it’s very possible your relationship is in serious trouble.

Research suggests lovers who are “poached” away from others are more likely to cheat in their new relationships.

Scientists at the University of Southern Alabama researched levels of commitment and satisfaction among 443 men and women.

Generally, relationships that start by stealing or approaching another person’s partner are usually at a greater risk of breakups and overall unhappiness.

Joshua Foster, the study’s lead author and professor at the University of South Alabama, confirmed this in his team’s research.

The results of the study were published in the Journal of Research in Personality and further exhibited that introverts, rather than extroverts, were more likely to leave their relationship for another partner.

People who left their partners for another tend to have unfavorable personality traits, including self-absorption, vanity and arrogance.

Foster says he was taken aback when he found introverts were more likely to leave their partner for another.

So if you’re attracted to someone who has a partner and think you have a chance, be cautious and tread lightly.
