A new study reveals that you can tell a guy will cheat based on the sound of his voice!

It can be frightening just how easily guys can lie to us (and how readily we’ll accept their bullshit, but that’s another story for another day). But now a new study claims that we can outright tell when a guy is telling an untruth about being unfaithful simply by listening to the inflection and tone of his voice — and not in a squeaky, frightened Justin Bieber-going-through-puberty cracking kind of way, either.

In fact, researchers found that guys with a lower voice are more likely to cheat, so beware your altos and basses (Chuck included).

A recent study done by the journal Evolutionary Psychology links voice pitch with perceived unfaithfulness, which, when you factor in previous research that shows lower-pitched dudes not only have more sexual partners but are considered to be more attractive by women in general, means that you should be on the red alert when meeting a Barry White-type.

But a similar set of conclusions exist for we gals as well. Guys were suspicious of women with higher pitched voices (think Renee Zellweger or Drew Barrymore) than of a woman with a throaty chuckle (such as Jennifer Aniston and Scarlett Johansson). So sweet-spoken ladies, watch your back — you’re more likely to get pegged as an unfaithful harlot!

What do you think of this study? Do you believe that men with a sexy, raspy voice have a stronger propensity to cheat?

Faithfully yours,

    I agree that women find men who have deeper voices sexier so they have more options which is probably where the “more likely to cheet” factor comes in. Based on percentages of offers alone it makes sence. However, it’s the opposite that’s been my experience of the guys i’ve been friends with or dated over the years. The ones with the higher voice have been the cheaters. The guys with the deeper voices have been either faithful or just players not tied down to anyone. (technically that’s not cheeting)

    As for the female side of this… well… i don’t have enough female friends or long term enough female friends to be able to make an informed opinion.

  5. [...] Even if you don’t practice it because you’re a die-hard cheater, chances are you’ve been brought up to believe in fidelity. You can appreciate that there is one woman for every man, one man for every man or one woman for every woman. However, those in other countries don’t necessarily have similar beliefs.
