Are you guilty of this?
Forget the age old biggest sign that your partner is going to cheat on you, a new study recently revealed that your partner’s name actually determines whether or not they’ll do the dirty behind your back.
It’s therefore no surprise that for those who have left the days of Tinder behind them and have found the secret to a happy relationship, paranoia about whether or not their partner is remaining faithful sometimes sets in. But would you ever spy on your loved one in order to put your mind at ease?
Given that 26% of women say they ‘just can’t help’ spying on their partner, surveillance specialists onlinespyshop.co.uk have decided to dig a little deeper into the matter – and the results are pretty shocking.
Historically, men are more likely to cheat on their significant other under claims of a higher sex drive (really fellas), although it was recently revealed that most couples surprisingly voted this one thing as the worst form of cheating. So, the onlinespyshop wanted to find out just how far we would all go to find out whether or not our partner was doing the deed with someone else.
They surveyed over 1,000 participants to find out just how much they trusted their partners, and whether or not they would invade their loved ones privacy if they were suspicious of unfaithful activity taking place.
Shockingly, 58% of the women who took part admitted to not trusting their partner. As a result of this 43% have spied on their significant other, with 37% confessing to reading their partner’s WhatsApp and text messages. Only 21% of the men who took part didn’t trust their partner.
Both men and women revealed that checking their partners messages was their preferred message for spying. Women also stated a preference for checking up on their significant other via phone calls when they were out and snooping through their partner’s pockets and bags, whereas men confessed they would rather check their partner’s GPS history.
Although no women admitted to using any form of spying software to keep tabs on their partner, 5% of men confessed to downloading spy apps and GPS trackers on their other half’s phones.
Other methods both men and women admitted to using in order to spy on their partners included checking bank statements, logging into their partner’s social media accounts and reading their emails.
Of those who took part 45% of men said they ‘would never’ spy on their partner – whereas only 26% of women agreed to do the same.
So the question here is, would you?
