MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Ladies listen up: there's a new app that tells you if your boyfriend is a low dog, dirty dog. It's called The Cheater Meter.
A South Carolina psychiatrist, Dr. Ish Major, created The Cheater Meter app. He specializes in relationships and says he wanted to help women with the app. Dr. Major says he gathered years of studies and complied it into 10 simple questions. He says the answers can help you catch a cheater before he even starts.
"This is not saying you are a cheater. We're identifying risk factors for guys who may cheat,” Dr. Ish Major told abc24.com in a phone interview. “Guys with a graduate degree are more than 3 quarters more likely to cheat. Another separate study found guys who earn $75,000 dollars or more are twice as likely to cheat."
Guys we spoke with don't like it.
"I am kind of offended because it makes it seem like we just cheat, which isn't true,” said Memphian Trey Easter.
"I say it's 50/50. Women and guys cheat,” said another man who didn’t like the app, Terrell Young.
Women are mixed.
"I think it's kind of weird,” said Kaylenn Montgomery.
"It'll just give you an idea of what's going on," said a woman who likes the app, Brittany Belew.
"It seems like a stereotype though. It stereotypes men that make more money or that are more successful to be cheaters, I mean maybe but probably not,” said Courtney Chumley.
“To be honest I would download it just because of the silliness behind it. When you have iPhones you download everything so I probably would try it,” said Trinica Goods.
Most of the folks told abc24.com it's better to confront the cheater in person than use an app.
"I think if you have suspicion you should probably face it head on and not use an app to face your suspicions,” said Chumley.
"You can't really trust an app for that; you have to trust the person,” said Montgomery.
"I don't think she should be with him if she has to download it just to see how he's really acting. Like, really? I'm sorry, I'm still stuck that they have an app for that,” laughed Jeneka Wise.
"The Cheater Meter" app costs 99 cents and it's available on iTunes. The psychiatrist says he's not trying to make a quick buck. He says it's a tool for women to use to make an informed decision if they should move forward with their relationships.
