Is he cheating? What are the signs? There are five factors that seem to have the greatest influence over whether a spouse will cheat. These factors are fairly intuitive and probably won't surprise many people.
Is He Cheating Signs | 6 Influencing Factors:
1. Good Looks, Charisma & Wealth
Just like the peacock, men with beautiful plumes often get their choice of the peahen. For women, those described as "sex-pots" and "hotties" are often sought after by men – ring or no ring. No new information here. That’s why people tell you that, if your middle-aged hubby is suddenly sporting a new look, you might want to start asking some questions; and same guess for middle-aged women. Better to marry dowdy and Shrek-like than dapper and gorgeous, charming, and rich -- no explanation needed here.
2. Opportunity and Free Time
Couples that lead fairly separate lives – social lives, careers, travel – are more likely to cheat than couples that spend most of their time together. Of course, couples that spend every minute together can get sick of each other and may never grow as people. Somewhere in between suffocation and total freedom is probably best.
3. Risk Taking Personalities
People who like a thrill tend to get themselves involved in extramarital affairs more than homebodies and cautious people. If you’re married to one of those adventurous types, better look into couple’s skydiving or bungee jumping... or you might be in for a sad surprise.
4. High Sex Drive
Obviously, if you don’t like sex, you will be less likely to seek it out! People who love sex, and those who have an “addiction” to the excitement, thrill, and titillation of “the kill,” are at great risk for cheating. No matter how wonderful the sex life of a married couple, it can be hard to compete with the "new" (for some people!)
5. low self-esteem
Some people believe that sex outside of your marriage is a by-product of low self-esteem. The conquest -- this line of thinking goes -- helps the cheater feel validated, desired and needed (at least for a little while).
6. Feeling neglected and unappreciated
Of course, unless the cheater feels somehow entitled to a harem or stable of studs, most individuals who engage in extramarital sex are not happy in their marriage. They often feel neglected, both physically and emotionally. They talk of being unappreciated, misunderstood and unloved. This is an open door for extramarital affairs.
