    Can someone please just answer me this; what is the percent of population, both men and women, that have not cheated? And what percent of marriage has been successful without ever dealing with infidelity? Please help before I lose my faith in humanity, lol!! 19 and have had 3 boyfriends. They all cheated on me with my best friend. 🙂

    Around 16:34 forward you had plenty of accurate suggestions I personally believe. I think that you had a bit of a disconnect thinking from a males perspective which is understandable. I have difficulty thinking from a females perspective. Generalizing is the best way to get the point across. Overall decent video 👌🏾.

    It’s so sad cause it fucks up the normal people that don’t cheat and want a real relationship. We go through so much emotionally we can’t even trust anyone anymore

    I think I'm just a piece of shit. I like the girl I'm with, everything is perfect, and I truly feel happy with her. But I just can't avoid flirting and taking things too far with other cute girls I meet.

    Crazy thing is nowadays players and cheaters use and abuse the term "Unconditional love" and "free spirited" to justify their immaturity and fear of commitment, and to make it easier for them to use others and take advantages of others for their own benefits. Could you pls touch on this topic? Thx

    If you truly love someone you will not hurt him/her in any way, love and hurt cannot exist together! So if your s/o cheated on you then apologize and say they love you, it's just bullshiz!

    While I never been cheated on, or been cheating on someone, during those years that I were actively dating. I did, however, take quite a few punches and kicks.
    Knowing what a badly broken heart can feel like (from a completely different experience), I can say that I rather take a punch, or a kick any given day, rather than
    being cheated on by someone, that I thought, I had something serious with.

    You can't control how other people will treat you, but you can leave early before that or even not get into anything with them if you sense they are fickle and emotionally volatile, which many seem to be today.

    how is gender not an issue, a man can have a virtually unlimited amount of offspring, a woman is limited to 1/y.
    Furthermore in the vast majority of the animal kingdom, males compete for women, not the other way around?

    Are you familiar with the pre frontal cortex & how it may play a role in the decisions to cheat? I would be interested in a video about this topic

    About the biology part (because it stuck out to me and others):

    I'm NO doctor. But if I'm correct, there are multiple schools of thought. Some psychologists believe all of our psychology is rooted in serving a biological function/ evolutionary purpose. Others dispute this.

    I think trust in a relationship is overrated. When my husband started getting frequent night calls , i would ask and he would just wave off those calls as unimportant…….. At a time i could take no more of his lies, i decided i deserve to know what was going on. A friend of mine referred me to this great ethical hacking team( Cyberhackingsage@gmail ) who helped clone his cellphone without having to touch the device. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad i found out all his secrets and infidelity and how he planned on using this pandemic to get back to me. I got access to his Facebook, iMessage, GPS location , WhatsApp, Call Logs and Text Messages (both deleted and incoming ones) with a remote link to a programmed App on my phone. I’m here in Florida and able to access my husband’s phone even while he was away in Canada cheating on me. Thanks to Cyberhackingsage, now i have enough evidence for my divorce. If you need help or that little bit of closure, i advice you get in touch with them Via Gmail ( cyberhackingsage@gmail )Or Text and WhatsApp them on +15713758467….thank me later.

    Are asexual individuals less or not likely to cheat and have a happy marriage forever? If that’s the case, they are lucky

    I think I need help…. I have no type of remorse for cheaters to the point where it’s sick. Ik somebody who cheated and their partner had physically hurt them to the point there life was lost. I felt like it was justified and I want to change that mindset but I can’t. I genuinely hate cheaters but I want to be able to accept that it’s life but I can’t🥴

    Ana! Thank you so much. You are giving us invaluable information. I am a psychologist too and I don't know how many hours I would have spent on google scholar or EBSco to come up with such a summary of findings

    I suspected my wife of cheating on me but I never had any proof. This went on for months, I didn't know what to do. i was so paranoid and decided to find a solution, i saw a recommendation about a hacker and decided to contact him. I explained the situation about my wife to him and he said he was going to help me.I gave him all the informations he required and afterwards i received all my wife’s phones Text messages and calls, I was hurt when i saw a picture of my wife and her lover. I feel so bad about infidelity. but i am glad Mr james was able to help me get all this information, you can contact him through Gmail : Worldcyberhackers or WhatsApp: ‪+1 (267) 877‑3020 ,.

    I am really happy you mentioned avoiding selfishness, narcissism, sense of entitlement, low-morality first!… you can't 'cheat proof' that. It is so damaging when people spread messages like 'have sex with them often, spoil them, satisfy them'… especially for those in narcissistic relationships.

    If a woman (being the other woman) is okay sleeping with a married man. Is that an indication they are okay with cheating?
