Studies have been looking into genetics, biology, psychology and even income as factors for why people stray. But there is a surprisingly simple new factor that has been overlooked until now.
The University of North Carolina analyzed data from 500 study participants to determine the cause of cheating hearts. The participants ranged in age of 18 to 30 and each resided in Los Angeles. The study asked the individuals to record whether or not drugs and alcohol played a major part in their s*xual relationships and whether or not they felt secure that their partner would never stray.
The core problem discovered in the study is that people who mistrust their partner and believe them to be unfaithful, will, in turn, become unfaithful. Many people feel justified cheating because it is 'payback' for the cheating they think is happening already, even though it may never be the case. People who are overly paranoid about their partner cheating identify these 4 main elements which they write off as suspicious behaviour.
#1 Your Partner Is Hanging Out With Other People
Some people in relationships try to develop a strangle-hold on their partner's social activities. Just because your partner wants to see their friends or go out for the night does not mean they are disloyal.
#2 Your Partner Watches Porn
A lot of monogamous people indulge in porn. Everyone is entitled to fantasize without fear of looking like an adulterer. Because of the secretive, discreet nature of porn-viewing, it may seem a little alarming at first. But more times than not, it does not signal a cheater.

#3 Your Partner Masturbates
Self-pleasure is nothing to be shamed for. 85% of men and 45% of women masturbate regularly. It is part of a greater spectrum of s*xuality and it is healthy. It does not reveal that your partner is looking to cheat on you.
#4 Your Partner Doesn't Respond To Texts Immediately
Not everyone is good at texting back. There is usually no need to jump to conclusions. However, if they are continually ignoring your important texts or calls, something might be up. Keep a solid communication in person and find out the problem with being interrogative.
