If you’re in a relationship then chances are the worst possible outcome, or at least one of them, is that your partner cheats on you – leaving you heartbroken, betrayed, and with big trust issues.
However, a new study has found that there is something a lot worse than cheating according to a poll of 60,000 heterosexual, gay, lesbian, and bisexual couples – falling in love with somebody else.
Yep, according to indy100, the poll which was conducted in the journal, Archives of Sexual Behaviour, found that people find it far more upsetting to have their partner fall in love with another person without doing anything even remotely sexual.
And this can even include just exchanging a casual few flirty words with a co-worker or chatting frequently with somebody else.
Apparently, 65 per cent of heterosexual women were far more fussed about ’emotional cheating’ than they were about physical cheating.
Alternatively, 54 per cent of heterosexual men were more hurt by their partner’s sexually infidelity, depicting a contrast between male and female emotions.
On top of this, 70 per cent of bisexual men, 68 per cent of gay men, and 73 per cent of bisexual women were also a hell of a lot more upset about the prospect of their partner falling in love with another person than having a fling with somebody else.
But what do you think?
