Let's face it, no one wants to date a cheater but oftentimes we don't see the signs our boyfriend or girlfriend is a shady little liar. Forget him asnwering his phone in the closet or her being less affectionate with you. Is your girlfriend blonde? Is your guy addicted to Twitter? What's his name? Through journal studies and surveys users on cheating websites, science seems to know exactly what makes someone more likely to be unfaithful.
But does someone's height or name really make them any more (or less) likely to stray — or are these things strange coincidences? Well, only those who have dated these 9 people may know the truth. Until you do the dating legwork, we'll give you the facts and let you make an educated decision yourself.
People Whose Age Ends In '9'
Going on a date with guy who's about to turn 29? May want to wait a year or so, says science!
According to a new study published in Proceedings of the Natural Academy of Sciences, people turning an age that ends in '9' are more likely to cheat on their partners.
Why? People turning 29, 39, 49, etc. tend to have major self-and make life-altering choices as they approach a new decade.
In fact, of the 8 million men on extramarital affair dating website, Ashley Madison, more than 950,000 men were ages 29, 39, 49, or 59.

2. Rock N' Roll Fans
These two are the kind of sketchballs your mama warned you about. Another survey from IllicitEncounter.com found that 41 percent of cheaters prefer rock music to all other genres. Your best bet for a loyal partner? Rap lovers.
5. Twitter Users
Shocker: social media can be harmful your romantic relationship! While this isn't too surprising, research from the University of Missouri shows those who tweet cheat. The more often a person uses Twitter, the more often they have relationship conflicts, like affairs. #TimeToCloseTheLaptop
AshleyMadison also revealed that their typical, adulterous female user is a serious shopper. More than a third of the women surveyed said they spend more on their appearance since they started cheating. And, 27 percent have a secret credit card to fund their purchases. The preferred brand of the unfaithful? Banana Republic.
8. Guys Who Work In IT
Don't be fooled by their soft hoodies, hipster glasses and patience when it comes to restoring your iPhone (you really should start backing up!) — these guys are sneaky, cheating hubbies, according to the same AshleyMadison survey that revealed unfaithful wives are often teachers.
As for Lil Wayne, his real name is Dwayne, so we're not sure where that stands on the adultery scale. Does the D negate anything? For now, try not to date Lil Wayne. We'll update you when science gets back to us.
