9 Personality Traits That Can Predict If Someone Will Be Loyal In A Long-Term Relationship

Andrew Zaeh for Bustle

There are definitely folks on this earth who have a few personality traits that can indicate signs they will remain loyal in a relationship, while others — not so much. And when you're out in the dating world and meeting new people, it can certainly help to stay away from the latter and look for the former. But, as with everything, it's also important to remember people are complex, and nothing is guaranteed.

"While personality is something to consider when assessing possible loyalty in a relationship, it shouldn’t be a major factor," Jonathan Bennett, relationship and dating expert at Double Trust Dating, tells Bustle. "Anyone is capable of cheating or remaining loyal ... so don’t prematurely judge your partner just because [they have] a certain personality trait. The opposite is also true. Don’t ignore red flags just because your partner seems to have a personality you don’t think lends itself to infidelity."

That said, when it comes to whether or not a person will be more likely to commit in a relationship, there does seem to be a connection between certain personality traits and their ability and desire to stick it out during tough times, work on problems, and stay faithful. Here are a few traits experts say may go hand-in-hand with loyalty in relationships, so you can keep your eyes out for someone who fits the bill.
