Four Common Types of People Your Partner Is Likely to Cheat With

Posted on

One of the most important parts of a relationship is having trust in your partner. But, commitment can be difficult for some, and they might be drawn to cheating as a possible way to escape. While it’s never the right answer, a significant other might cheat out of spite, anger, or revenge because they feel like their needs are not being met or have fallen out of love. Here are some of the people your partner is likely to cheat with. 

An Ex-Partner

Reaching out to reminisce about the good times with an old flame is even easier now, thanks to social media. Your partner might feel like there is unfinished business, or long for a different time in their life, and their ex can make them feel as though they can relive it. They might wish times were better with you, and turn to the comfort of someone who they think knows them best as a crutch.

A Neighbour

Temptation can hide in plain sight. If you are close with your neighbours, they probably know a bit about you, and your schedule. Your partner could feel easily drawn to the connection they have or perhaps relate to a similar relationship situation, and with easy access, the door of opportunity could be opened. 

A Work Colleague

Coworkers have an interesting perspective on the lives of the people they work with. A workplace can be a melting pot for all kinds of situations, and advice or a shoulder to cry on could develop into something more, especially since being at the office takes up a big chunk of the day. It’s also possible you never would meet this person, making it easier to hide.

A Stranger Online

The fact is that your partner is likely to cheat on you with someone they already know. However, dating apps with communication measures built into the platform make it easy to access, connect, and hide from you. If you already don’t pay much attention to what your partner does on their phone, they could see this as an easy opportunity.

If you suspect your partner is cheating, there are a few signs you can look for. If their schedule is constantly changing but the details are elusive, they are guarded with their phone or computer, and if they have unexplained expenses charged to a credit card.
