Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post where we’ll take a look at the question, “Will my boyfriend ever stop cheating on me?”
This is something slightly different to my usual posts and you might be asking why the change?
Well, I was listening to the radio where the two hosts have a competition to see if they can guess what Google will autosuggest from the first part of a phrase.
This week the phrase was, “Will my boyfriend ever stop….”
And sadly enough, the top autosuggestion for that phrase is, “…cheating on me?”
So, I’ve done the research for you, added my “investigator” opinion, and made it simple and easy to read.

#1 Do you know he’s actually cheating?
Look, I have to ask the question. Do you actually know he’s cheating on you in the first place?
If you’re not sure, take a look at this post:
Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post where I’m going to show you the signs which will help you answer the question, “Is my boyfriend cheating on me?” When concerned girlfriends call us they always ask this question. While we can’t say for sure because there’s always the possibility something…
#2 Relationship Status
Let’s get real — if you just started dating a new guy, it’s perfectly natural for there to be some “crossfire” between you and other potential dates he might have.
But once you’re in a relationship, there should be no other dates and no other women, right?
And I’m guessing if you’re typing in the words, “…ever stop…”, then you feel like it’s been happening for a while, or multiple times?
What I know from years of investigating cases of cheating, is that it doesn’t matter whether your relationship is months or even years old. When someone decides to cheat, the reason is often nothing to do with their “relationship status”.
#3 The Painful Truth
When I think about who would type this search query into Google, it seems to me there are two main categories. For one category, there is some hope their boyfriend might stop cheating. For the other, it’s extremely unlikely.
If you’re young, and your boyfriend is too, then cheating can be because of immaturity. In this specific case, cheaters can change as they get older. (And they realise the extent their betrayal is causing harm to their partner.)
But, if you’re a little older, and in a serious relationship where your boyfriend is a serial cheater, then it’s highly unlikely he will stop.
Sure, everyone is capable of change — but the word on the street from my research is that it’s more than improbable.
