Science identifies the types of men who are most likely to cheat on you

The New York Post has published a handy guide to help singles identify which types of men are more likely to cheat on them based on a variety of surveys and studies. Among the Post’s findings: Guys named “Wayne” are some of the least trustworthy, and guys who work in IT are some of the worst adulterers of them all.

Here are some other likely cheating culprits…

Tall dudes

A 2014 study conduced by Illicit Encounters, one of the U.K.’s leading cheating websites for married people, found men who claim to be 5’10” or taller are a whopping two times–two times!–more likely to cheat.

Mike Taylor from the website said: “There is also a certain confidence that comes with height, and guys know that it gives them edge over shorter guys.”

With that added confidence, evidently, comes a proneness to infidelity.

Rock-and-Roll fans

A person’s taste in music can a lot about them, especially if they’re into rock music. Another survey from found that 41% of people who admitted to cheating also admitted to loving rock music. Conversely, people who like rap music reported being the most loyal to their partners. #themoreyouknow

The French

Don’t want to be cheated on? Don’t date a French man! A survey conducted by sex brand Lelo found that 75% of Frenchies admitted to having an affair at one point in their lives.


Remember that whole Ashley Madison hack that exposed a whole bunch of people who were secretly cheating on their spouses, including admitted child molester/antigay activist Josh Duggar? Well, according to the cheating website, guys who work in IT make up the highest percentage of infidels, followed by guys who work in finance and guys who work in education.

In addition to that, guys who use Twitter a lot also tend to cheat a lot. That’s according to research from the University of Missouri, which found that active Twitter users are more likely to experience Twitter-related conflicts in their romantic relationships, which, in turn, can lead to other relationship issues, like cheating.

Anyone whose age ends in a 9

19. 29. 39. 49. These are all ages to avoid when picking a potential partner in life. At least, according to data published by the Proceedings of the Natural Academy of Sciences. According to the study, a person’s whose age ends in the number nine is more likely to be unfaithful.


Well, the theory is that people who are about to enter a new decade in life tend to experience little mini-crises over it, which can result in more spontaneous and/or risky behavior. Or something.
