Is it worth worrying if your new boyfriend talks about cheating on his previous one? Scientists have published disappointing statistics …
New relationships must always be built on trust. But can you trust a person who deceived someone else, who previously played the same role in his life that you are now playing?
According to statistics, people who cheated on their partners once, three times more likely to change and in all their subsequent relationships.
The study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, involved 484 people. They were asked to describe all the incidents of sex they had outside of their regular relationship, or in the words of the scholars - to describe all incidents of their "non-diadic sexual involvement."
During the survey, a tendency in behavior emerged very quickly: a person who had deceived his soul mate once, in the future was inclined to deceive his regular sexual partner three times more often.
It is also interesting that few people learn from their mistakes: survey participants who reported that they were cheated on in some way, later became victims of treason twice as often… And those who suspected (without proof) their previous partners of treason were 4 times more likely to suspect all subsequent ones.
However, you should not immediately break off relations with a person if you know that he cheated on his first partner at the age of 17 …
Only half a thousand people took part in the study, and the scientists did not take into account the motivation for cheating, the emotional state of people during the deception, and also whether the cheaters themselves believe that they are serial liars, or whether they regret what they have done.
Just be prepared for anything and know that you are at risk of being deceived.
