    Maybe. Who knows what drives her, but she's one of the more interesting women on YT and she isn't in it for the money, obviously, otherwise she'd upload more videos on a regular basis. AE is pretty good and funny. Having watched several of her videos in the past few months I don't come to a "cynical" conclusion about her, on the contrary. AE's audience consists of people from the manosphere, BTW. Some of her videos I liked: Stop beta orbiting, why do people hate male feminists, the problem of toxic masculinity ...

    I had been wondering about this as well. Personally, if someone cheats once, I will never trust them again. It's a deal breaker. Opinions may differ but generally I find it to be true. They actually made a study about it:

    In this study, researchers examined data from a national US survey of young adults (aged 18 to 35) who answered questions about their romantic relationships at regular intervals over a five-year period. All participants were unmarried at the start of the study. Though nearly 1,300 people participated in total, the researchers focused only on the 484 adults who answered questions about at least two different relationships over the five years of the study.

    During each wave of data collection, participants were asked whether they had ever had "sexual relations" with someone other than their partner since they began dating seriously. Over the course of the study 44 percent answered yes to this question at least once.

    Participants were also asked whether their partners had done the same thing. In total, 30 percent knew that at least one of their partners had sex with someone else, while another 18 percent suspected this.

    So did cheating in one relationship predict cheating in the next relationship? It sure did. In fact, cheaters were 3.4 times more likely to do so the next time around. However, serial cheating wasn't necessarily a forgone conclusion. Specifically, 45 percent of those who cheated in the first relationship did so in their next relationship; by contrast, among those who didn't cheat initially, 18 percent cheated with their next partner.

    Interestingly, being cheated on in the first relationship predicted being cheated on in subsequent relationships, too. It's also worth noting that those who suspected their partners of cheating in one relationship were more likely to suspect their next partners of committing infidelity.

    What this suggests is not only that there are serial cheaters, but also serial victims when it comes to infidelity.

    While fascinating, there is an important limitation to this research, which is that the way these researchers assessed infidelity didn't distinguish between those who had sex outside of the relationship consensually vs. non-consensually. In other words, we don't know how many of these people were actually cheating and how many were in some kind of open relationship.

    However, it's worth noting that the number of people involved in open relationships seems to be much lower than the number of people who engage in cheating. For example, a new nationally representative US survey found that the number of Americans in unfaithful relationships in the last year was 2.5 times higher than the number who said they were in open relationships.

    So, when people in this study said they'd had sex outside of their relationship, odds are that they were cheating. As a result, even if we factored out the minority who were involved in open relationships, it probably wouldn't change the overall conclusions very much.
