If your man plays THESE sports ‘he’s more likely to cheat on you’ – The Sun

BEING sporty and fit is often an attractive trait on the wish list of girls seeking out their guy.

But, what sport a man plays could tell you a little bit about how faithful they are likely to be, a survey suggests.

Rugby players admitted to using their sport to hide an affair more than any other men in the survey

The survey found those who play team sports are more likely to use their hobby as an excuse when doing the dirty.

Top of the watch list are:

– rugby

– football

– golf

And the survey for more than 1,000 men suggests solo sportsmen are less likely to cheat.

Examples of solo sport:

– swimming

– running

It found team sports are more likely to be used as an excuse when a bloke is doing the dirty.

And the worst offenders? Rugby players.

Also on the need-to-watch list were golfers and footballers.

That’s compared to those that tend to go solo, swimmers and runners for example, who were less likely to use their hobby as a cover up when they were late home.

In a survey by golfsupport.com 1,750 men were asked about their affairs and the excuses they use.

Those who play the three sports mentioned above admitted they regularly used their sport as a cover for their affair.



It is not the first time playing sport has been linked to affair.

A 2016 survey by dating website for married people IllicitEncounters.com found 34 per cent of cheating men told their partners they were going on a golfing trip to cover up an affair.

Going to the gym was also an excuse used by a small number of people.

If you man is playing more sport than usual, you'd be right to be suspicious

So are men who play sports more likely to cheat?

Science offers a thin, yet plausible answer.

Playing sport or working out increases a man’s testosterone levels, which is associated with an increased sex drive.

It could also be that each act of infidelity is driven by completely different things.

Nearly half of individuals who have the specific dopamine receptor, a hormone associated with love and closeness, have admitted to cheating at some point in their lives, according to ASAPScience.

And some cheaters simply like the thrill of it and don’t seem to mind how society says they should behave.

In a study called The Dark Side of Going Abroad researchers found those who are well travelled may have a skewed moral compass because they have seen different cultures from around the world.

They may be less worried about the idea of cheating on their partner.
