A Strong Jaw May Indicate a Cheater, Studies Suggest
Can you tell if a man is going to cheat on you by his face? A new study suggests that that very well may be the case: apparently “classic masculine features,” like a square chin and prominent brow, suggest that a man may be likely to stray.
The Daily Mail reports:
Ladies, if you want to know if the man of your dreams will be faithful, look him in the jaw…or the chin or forehead.
Research shows that women are able to judge a man’s fidelity simply by studying his face.
Signs of a male who is prone to cheating include classic masculine features, such as a wide, angular jaw, a square chin and a prominent brow.
Women with wandering eye, however, can rest easy, as the study showed men to be poor at reading female faces.
The finding comes from Australian researchers who began by recruiting almost 200 volunteers and photographing them.
The men and women were also asked how attractive they thought they were and whether they had cheated when in a relationship in the past.
They were also asked about poaching – or embarking on an affair with someone who was already in a relationship.

While they might have been single themselves, this sort of behaviour could be a sign of ‘low commitment to monogamous values’, said the research team.
Sixty eight strangers were then shown the head and shoulders shots and asked to rate how likely they were to be unfaithful.
The women were ‘modestly accurate’ at picking out male love-rats, the Royal Society journal Biology Letters reports.
