Have you ever thought about the circumstances in which you met your current partner and whether that determines what your chances are at ever-lasting love?!

You may not realise it but the way your relationship started, can very well mean it may end the same way... 

According to The Independent, studies conducted can now determine the ultimate success of you and your loved one's pairing, especially if you are dating a cheater.

"Research suggests that if you 'mate poached' your current partner - luring them away from their other half without actually cheating - they will be less committed, less satisfied and less invested in the new pairing. The problem could be a huge issue, given an estimated 63% of men and 54% of women are in their current long-term relationships because their current partner “poached” them from a previous partner."

Not exactly what you want to read right? You may have psychology to blame, according to psychologist Joshua Foster who led the research.

"Individuals who were successfully mate poached by their current partners tend to be socially passive, not particularly nice to others, careless and irresponsible, and narcissistic."

“They also tend to desire and engage in sexual behaviour outside of the confines of committed relationships.” 

Make sure you look out for the warning signs ladies!
