The Image You See First In This Visual Test Reveals How Likely You Are To Cheat

Personality Test: How Likely You Are To Cheat In Your Relationship

When you start dating someone new, you don't do it thinking fondly of that day in the future when you will cheat on your new person. After all, if you're a monogamous person, you want to be with just one special partner forever.

Nobody ever goes into a new relationship planning to cheat, because cheating isn't just wrong, it's also a surefire way of destroying the relationship that you're already in. The truth has a way of coming out, and when it does, the trust you and your partner have built will be shattered.

Of course, cheating isn't always a black and white issue. Sometimes lack of communication can drive someone into the arms of another. Maybe the person you're cheating with scratches an itch that your partner just can't. Cheating is a bad thing, but doing it doesn't mean that you're a bad person, or, like, a Disney Supervillain.

If you saw the birds

If you saw the birds first, you're the kind of person who plans on always being faithful — and you will be, unless you feel like fate intervenes.

You're a sucker for romantic dramas, you believe in fate and destiny, and if you meet the right person when you're with someone else, you may not be able to resist.

I can't tell you that fate and destiny aren't real, but I can tell you that cheating always leaves someone feeling hurt.

If you saw the tree

If you saw the trees first, you're the kind of person who will never, ever cheat... but that's not always great.

You tend to sit on your emotions. You stay grounded and planted in the decisions that you make, sometimes to a stubborn and destructive degree.

Staying in a relationship that's unhappy isn't a smart choice. Don't be afraid to bend and sway with the breeze.

If you saw the huts

If you saw the huts first, you're the kind of person who cheats regularly.

It's never something you plan, and frankly, if you had your way, your relationships would allow for you to be with other people in an honest way. Unfortunately, you seldom share this thought with your partners.

You can't enter a relationship dishonestly and expect it to thrive. Next time, talk to your prospective mate about your needs before you make it official.

If you saw the elephant

If you saw the elephant first, you're the kind of person who has cheated once and will never do it again.

You're experienced in relationships, and even if you weren't caught cheating (knowing you that's a real possibility), you understand the damage that cheating can cause in any relationship.

Cheating isn't a road you enjoyed walking down. Share that experience with others — they might learn something.
