A reader sent Chrissie and I a link to a Cosmo story about how to tell if you're dating a cheat.
The title alone "Dating 101: Will Your Guy Cheat on You?" is enough to make me throw up in my mouth.
The list is unfair. It will only breed paranoia in women... a gender typically fraught with insecurity as it is. Not to mention, according to this list, I'D be a cheat ... and I have never strayed once in the 13 years I've been on the market.
Here it goes (If the answer is yes, they're probably gonna cheat) ...
Dating Factor: His Background
Cheat Predictor #1
(#1 I have led a spoiled life where most things come easily. Whatever doesn't come easily, I use violence or money to get it.
#2 My parents don't exactly baby me, but they do help out with the bookies.
#3 I even paid a Russian chick to go to my classes ... forget just writing the papers.)
Dating Factor: His Career
Cheat Predictor #2
(#1 I'm a woman that mostly works with men.
#2 I work AT LEAST til 9 pm every night.
#3 I make so much money I need a shoe horn to close my wallet. )
Dating Factor: His Schmooze MO
Cheat Predictor #3
(#1 Yup. I could talk a nun out of her habit, baby.
#2 Well ... I don't need to "make an effort" ... just comes natural. Ask the naked nun on my lap.
#3 At a party I definitely scope out the scene before settling on a spot. You say hi to everyone ... find the booze, locate the bathroom and then camp out with the cool kids. That's what you do at a party. )
Dating Factor: His Friends
Cheat Predictor #4
(#1 Most of my friends are single guys.
#2 They make me do just-for-men activities (what does that even mean?)
#3 All of my single friends OBVIOUSLY have trouble staying in a relationship. That's why they're single)
So, am I wrong? Do you think these are good indicators? What would be?
