Science revealed the features of a cheater as well as what you get from stealing someone else’s partner.
The majority folks understand that morally talking stealing someone else’s guy is a no no.
A fresh study by social psychologist Joshua Foster sought to learn if future relationship consequences could be predicted by partner poaching. While their results should be already confirmed by common sense, for the ones that need more facts, Foster analyzed 3 distinct groups to produce the following;
Individuals who were poached by their current romantic partners were less committed, less satisfied, and less invested in their relationships. They also paid more attention to romantic alternatives, perceived their alternatives to be of higher quality, and engaged in higher rates of infidelity compared to non-poached participants.
Ouch! Let us read that again, but in bold letters.
LESS COMMITTED, LESS SATISFIED AND LESS INVESTED IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP!
It makes intuitive sense that people who were poached by their partners showed less commitment and satisfaction in their existing relationship. After all, if they were willing to abandon a partner in the past, why should they not be willing or even keen to do so again?
A NUMBER OF THE CHARACTER FEATURES OF THE PARTNER WHO WILL PROBABLY BE POACHED:
- Lower agreeableness (lesser empathy, less concern for others’ wellbeing)
- Low conscientiousness (less motivated, lesser impulse control, less organized)
- Narcissism (selfishness, self absorption, anxiety for self over others)
- Avoidant connection (minimize affair, maintain emotional distance, readily feel immobilized)
- Unrestricted sociosexual orientation (willing to make out or engage in casual sex outside a relationship)
- Extraversion that is low (less involved, lower energy)
If you’re now dating a passive, narcissistic man, thoughtless and reckless, and not especially pleasant to others, chances are, they will probably lead in sexual conduct beyond the boundaries of committed relationships.
I’ve always loved the Oscar Wilde quote “I can resist everything except temptation.” Pretty cheeky, and I think we’ve all gone through a phase where we’re compelled to do things we know aren’t exactly the best for us. Unlike booking a last-minute trip to Las Vegas or that extra scoop of gelato, stealing someone’s boyfriend is one temptation you should always avoid. Science even says so! People in relationships where one partner stole the other from someone else were “less committed, less satisfied, and less invested,” according to a study in Journal of Research in Personality.

According to one estimate, 63 percent of men and 54 per cent of women are in their current long-term relationships because their current partner “poached” them from a previous partner. Now researchers in the US and Australia have conducted the first investigation into the fate of relationships formed this way, as compared with relationships formed by two unattached individuals.
An initial study involved surveying 138 heterosexual participants (average age 20; 71 per cent were women) four times over nine weeks. All were in current romantic relationships that had lasted so far from 0 to 36 months. Men and women who said they’d been poached by their current partner tended to start out the study by reporting less commitment to their existing relationship, feeling less satisfied in it, committing more acts of infidelity and looking out for more alternatives.What’s more, over the course of the study, these participants reported progressively lower levels of commitment and satisfaction in their relationships. They also showed continued interest in other potential romantic partners and persistent levels of infidelity. This is in contrast to participants who hadn’t been poached by their partners – they showed less interest in romantic alternatives over time.

Ever wonder if your significant other isn’t being entirely truthful?
Unfortunately, there’s a good chance you’re right. It’s perfectly normal to lie.
In a study of undergrads, 60% of participants lied at least once during a 10-minute casual conversation with a stranger. But suppose that fibbing extended to important matters, like fidelity, and important people — like a significant other.
Science can’t tell you if your partner is sleeping around, but recent research has shown we can often detect when someone is hiding something. Credits: How To Tell If Someone Is Cheating On You – Business Insider
