What to Do with a Serial Cheater

But serial cheaters don’t regard an affair as a mistake. For them, it’s an achievement – something they can be proud of doing. So the difference between most of the cases of infidelity that I have witnessed and serial cheating is a matter of initial intent. Serial cheaters intend to cheat before the onset of a relationship, while most unfaithful spouses do not intend to have an affair until they have fallen in love.

Serial Adultery: Is It Chance or Character? | Psychology Today

In the comments to my previous posts on adultery, one recurring theme dealt with “serial” adulterers, people whose behavior shows a pattern of repeated cheating. This can involve repeated affairs within one committed relationship, or leaving one relationship for a lover, then leaving that person for another, and so on.

Serial Cheater: 14 Signs You’re Dating Someone Who Loves Cheating

If you cheat once, that doesn’t mean you’ll cheat again. However, serial cheaters are a whole different story. Cheating is their middle name. They’re addicted to jumping from one relationship to another or just simply constantly cheating on their partners.

Listen, I’m an advocate for sexual freedom, but not when it hurts another person. If you want to fuck around with everyone, cool, just be single while doing it.

Serial cheater alert – How to know you’re in a relationship with one

Respectful Infidelity: The Questionable Argument Behind Serial Cheaters

There’s something really psychotic about serial cheaters.

A serial cheater is someone who leads an entire separate relationship alongside a pre-existing one, or it is someone who repeatedly has sex with people who are not his or her significant other.

A relationship involving a serial cheater is not be confused with a consensual open relationship.

While open relationships don’t work for everyone, there’s something significantly more honest about your indiscretions in this scenario, versus tiptoeing in and out of hotel rooms and unfamiliar apartments.

Beware the “Cheater’s High”! – From MindTools.com

The cheater’s high is an emotional boost, or thrill, that some people get when they successfully cheat or deceive another person or organization. The rush they enjoy can lead them to repeat their dishonesty, even when there’s no reward other than the high itself. If there is anything remotely positive to take from this behavior, it is the finding that, in most cases, getting the high depends on their actions not directly harming anyone else.

The unethical or deceitful behavior of the cheater’s high does not have to be severe or criminal. For example, it can be exaggerating your management experience in an interview, “borrowing” items from the stationery cupboard, or logging more hours than you actually worked.

Looking honestly at your own behavior, try to recall whether you have ever felt a buzz or a kick at getting away with a lie or some form of cheating. If you have, you’ve experienced the cheater’s high.

A Warning Against Financial Dishonesty

Do you find yourself fighting with your spouse about money? Maybe it’s time to reorganize the way you manage your money, and get on the same page before you find yourself going to extremes. Money should be something that supports the life you want to live with your spouse, not a way to exert power or gain an advantage.

When husbands and wives hide things from one another, especially money, the truth inevitably comes out – so why even bother? You’ll be happier, more financially secure, and a whole lot more trusting of one another if you can openly talk about your finances as a household instead of as individuals.

Crucial Steps to Deal With Financial Infidelity

One of the most devastating things you can deal with in love is infidelity. It can be difficult to overcome and may signal the end of your relationship. But while cheating partners are devastating, many young couples today are facing another kind of infidelity. A 2017 survey says that nearly 60 percent of Millennials are the victims of financial abuse — with romantic partners hiding debt, lying about money, and using finances to manipulate partners.

The victims of this type of abuse not only have to work hard to regain trust if they want to save their romantic relationships, but also need to sort out financial messes that have resulted from hidden debts, secret accounts, and other types of financial infidelities that could ruin their credit scores.
