As the saying goes, “Once a cheater, always a cheater.” But what if we tell you that there’s actually scientific proof to back that up?
We feel the exact same way, Blair.
In a recent study shown by educational YouTube channel AsapScience via a short animation, the chances of one’s infidelity can be linked back to internal factors such as one’s genetic makeup. This is in addition to external factors such as dissatisfaction and emotional baggage, which most of us attribute cheating to. Sounds crazy? Watch this video to learn a little more.
Okay, so maybe cheaters might have their genes to blame. But do take note that not everyone with this sort of genetic makeup cheated on their significant others; instead, there was only a tendency for it. So whether or not you choose to blame it on the hormones and chromosomes or the booze, that’s all up to you. At the end of the day, it’s still a matter of having control over yourself and your actions.
Right you are, Miss Waldorf.
