Apparently a woman’s intuition is like a borderline superpower. And a guy’s intuition is borderline non-existent.
A recent survey by the cheating website Illicit Encounters found that women are WAY more likely to know if they’re being cheated on.
Here are four stats . . .
- 79% of women who’ve caught someone cheating said they could tell something was going on. Only 49% of guys suspected anything. So the other half had no idea.
- Women are more likely to KEEP calling you out if they think something’s going on. The average woman who’d caught someone cheating brought it up four times before they found out the truth or broke things off. Men only brought it up twice.
- Men and women are both just as likely to deny something’s going on. 85% of women who’ve been caught cheating said they denied it, and so did 82% of men.
- Women are more likely to hire a private investigator to find out what’s going on. 5% of women who’ve been cheated on said they did it. Only 2% of men did.
A guy in Changsha, China named Yuan got into a car accident a few weeks ago, and was taken to the hospital. (His age wasn’t reported, but he looks like he’s in his 20s.)
So doctors contacted everyone in his phone to tell them what was going on.
His girlfriend panicked, and rushed there to see him. But then . . . ANOTHER one of his girlfriends also showed up. And another. And another. And on and on and on.
It turns out Yuan had SEVENTEEN girlfriends, and none of them knew about each other . . . until they all met at the hospital. And apparently, they all went from worried about him to FURIOUS at him.
One of them said she’d been with him for NINE years. Another one says she has a SON with him. And another one had already started planning their wedding.
His injuries weren’t life threatening . . . but we’re assuming all 17 of his relationships pretty much flat lined.

If you’re worried someone is cheating on you, here’s how to find out: Invite some strangers over to play Pictionary with you. Yes, really.
A new study out of Brigham Young University in Utah found that we can’t tell if we’re being cheated on . . . but STRANGERS can spot it almost immediately.
In the test, they had people watch couples do a task where one was blindfolded, and the other person had to guide them to draw something. Then the researchers asked the strangers if the couples were faithful, or if one person was cheating.
And the people watching the couples got it right SO often that it couldn’t have been lucky guesses . . . the difference was THAT statistically significant.
But the researchers say they’re not exactly sure HOW or WHY strangers are so good at spotting cheating couples . . . that’s going to take more research.
