When you meet a guy, how do you know whether or not you can trust him? These new stats on cheating will have you surprised by the warning signs you should watch out for.

Men Who Can’t Get It Up

A recent study found that men who suffer from performance issues can battle insecurities that make it much more likely for them to cheat.

Women With iPhones?

This study found that most women who cheat use their smartphones to do it. And most of those cheating women use iPhones.

Anyone With A Sugar Mama

Men who are financially dependent on their partners are three times more likely to cheat as men who contribute equally to the household.

Men Who’ve Just Celebrated Father’s Day

More men sign up to the affair site Ashley Madison on this day than on any other day of the year. The second most popular day? The day after Mother’s Day.

Men With Friends Who Cheat

Sometimes birds of a feather do flock together. 53 percent of unfaithful men report knowing friends and immediate family who have cheated (or currently are), compared with only 33 percent of faithful men.

Sugar Daddies

This study found that men who are the sole breadwinners are more likely to cheat. Why? Because they feel secure that “their wives will not leave them if they cheat.”

Women Over The Age Of 35

new survey from dating site Coffee & Co. found that women in their 30s and 40s are likely to stray when they don’t feel emotionally supported.

Men Who Aren’t “The Type” To Cheat

Some men have “player” written all over them. But others report that affairs happen with friends and associates when they aren’t looking to take part in them — and over 60 percent of them happen with co-workers at work.

Powerful Men

Rich and powerful men have always been attractive to women looking for a come-up. They’re also more likely to cheat.

Men Who Are Still In Love

A frightening 78 percent of men reported that they didn’t have to fall out of love with their significant other to look for attention somewhere else.

The Clueless

Do you and your partner agree on what you believe is cheating? While flirty texts, Facebooking the ex and drinks with a co-worker can be considered suspect to one partner, the other could think that they were well within bounds. It always pays to talk about this stuff.

The Sexually Satisfied

Things in the bedroom get spicier recently? Some men actually get more amorous when they’re stepping out on their girlfriends.

The Person You Cheated On

Roughly 9 percent of men and 14 percent of women have admitted to revenge cheating after their partner was unfaithful.

Men Who Work In Finance

The most common field of male cheaters on Ashley Madison? Finance. For women who cheat? Education.
