FSU study reveals predictors of cheating
Researchers followed 233 newlyweds for three and a half years to glean insights on infidelity and relationship longevity. Some of their findings may not surprise you at all, while perhaps some will.

The core research is interesting, especially the testing of the psychological processes "attentional disengagement" and "evaluation devaluation" to gather data.

Quote:If your partner is sexually satisfied they're still likely to cheat on you, according to a new study

Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate how committed you are to your partner.

Unfortunately, if your partner is young, easily distracted, or even adequately sexually satisfied, they could be more likely to cheat on you.

New research from Florida State University has highlighted some of the main predictors that your partner will stray.

Keeping your partner happy in bed is one of them, because if someone enjoys sex, they might be more likely to go looking for more of it.

If you want a relationship to work out, there are a few early signs you can look out for. Thanks to new research from Florida State University, there are also some new predictors that a relationship will fail.

In a new study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, researchers followed 233 newlyweds for three and a half years, documenting intimate details about their relationships such as satisfaction, commitment, whether they had cheated, and if they were still together.

In particular, the researchers tested psychological processes called "attentional disengagement" and "evaluation devaluation," while showing subjects photos of a mixture of highly attractive and average-looking men and women.

These processes are the ability to direct attention away from someone who is particularly good-looking, and the tendency to trick yourself into thinking someone is less good-looking than they are, respectively — both of which are common ways people in committed relationships stop themselves being distracted and tempted by other options.

Unsurprisingly, those who took less time to look away from the photos were less likely to cheat on their partner. Those who took longer to direct their attention away were more likely to.

"People are not necessarily aware of what they're doing or why they're doing it," said Jim McNulty, a psychology professor from FSU and the lead author of the study. "These processes are largely spontaneous and effortless, and they may be somewhat shaped by biology and/or early childhood experiences."

Other strong indicators someone would cheat in the future were someone's age, as younger people were more likely to stray, and their sexual history. Men who'd had more short-term sexual partners were more likely to have an affair, and the opposite was true for women.

Also, people who said they were satisfied with their sexual relationship were more likely to cheat. The researchers say this could be a result of people enjoying sex, and seeking out more of it regardless of how they felt about their current relationship.

The research team hope the results of the study could help professionals offer advice for people in how to stay committed to their partners. And, as social media results in more people connecting to each other, they say understanding how people avoid temptation could be more relevant than ever.

Rainbow RE: FSU study reveals predictors of cheating
I find the most accurate predictor of infidelity from the male half of the relationship is girls who date me. It's accurate af with a 100% proven track record that "cheating" is going to occur.

Wait, what the fuck? Am I reading this wrong? Is it saying women who have had more long term relationships or more likely to cheat, or is it saying that somehow women who have more short term sexcapades are less likely to cheat? Because either way, that does not sound right to me.

RE: FSU study reveals predictors of cheating
Heartiste had a good write-up here.

Quote:Options = instability (younger people — really, younger women — have more options, so they have more temptations).

What about the seemingly contradictory finding that less attractive women are higher cheat risks? This is explained by the inherent instability of LSMV partnerships. Plain Janes are usually hitched to boring asexual beta mediocrities who are nonetheless reliable emotional tampons and open wallets. Beautiful women may get more attention (and have more tryst options), but they also are more likely to have a relationship with a high value man who gives them both the alpha fux and the beta bux, tamping down their urge to illicitly merge. Given the sexual market reality of men fucking “across and down” (and women dating “across and up”), it’s not surprising that average looking women would have both access to alpha males willing to pump and dump them *and* the motivation to seek out that exciting extracopulatory affair.

This is why, btw, sluts are more often than not less attractive than their peers. Sluts NEED to be slutty to get laid; no man will invest his energy into an unattractive chaste woman. Men WILL invest in chaste hot babes, because the payoff is so much higher.

Yes you are reading it wrong. The inverse statement of:
Quote:"men who sleep around a lot are more likely to cheat in the future"

is:
Quote:"women who don't sleep around a lot are less likely to cheat in the future."

It's just quicker/easier to type " the opposite" that what what I just did above. The statement didn't seem that ambiguous to me.

RE: FSU study reveals predictors of cheating
Am I the only one who got distracted at the Jim McNulty part and basically couldn't read the rest of it because of positive thoughts.

I'm also 100% going to cheat based on their criteria...
