And guess what? If your girlfriend cheats on you once, odds are she’ll cheat on you again, and again, and again, because according to a new study, the more times a person cheats and subsequently lies about it, the less guilty they feel about it, so the more likely they are to do it again, over and over. Well, I guess the saying “once a cheater, always a cheater” is pretty credible after all.
The study, which was published in the scientific journal Nature Neuroscience, found that each time a person lies, they feel less and less culpable. So basically, the more times a person cheats, the better they feel about cheating, so they do it again.
