There is a reason why the saying ‘once a cheat, always a cheat’ exists, and it’s because some of us are simply hard-wired differently.
There are three primary reasons for why people cheat: Individual, Relationship and Situational. ‘Once a cheat, always a cheat’, refers to individual reasons for cheating: qualities about the person that make him or her more prone to being unfaithful.
Those who cheat because they’re unsatisfied in their relationship, or are faced with a particularly rare situation which led to them cheating, may not cheat again, but those who cheat because of individual personality traits, probably will.
In fact, people who have cheated before are 350% more likely to cheat again.*
So now you’re armed with knowledge of what to look for, I hope you feel a tad more prepped. Touch wood you’ll never be cheated on, but if you are worrying that you are: don’t bury your head in the sand. Never settle for anything less than what you deserve, because you deserve the world.
