    Open your eyes men.

    Its probably higher than 43% because some women would have likely lied given the stigma of admitting infidelity / proclivity towards infidelity.

    LOL. I've already said this many times. Many women DO have a back up man, at least in their minds and know who it might be at least.
    Pathetic but hilarious at the same time.

    What is a 'backup man'? I am in a happy relationship but obviously know other girls, some of whom are attractive and single, some of whom I might have been interested in if things were different. Are these my 'backup girls'?

    #taking this far too seriously.
    A backup man is the guy that your gf starts dating or has rebound sex with shortly after you break up.

    As the infographic shows, most women have a backup man, most of the time this man is someone she's in contact with whilst you're together; he might even be someone you're aware of / friends with; and there's a chance that the backup man has already confessed his love for your gf.

    You gotta keep your eyes open brah, and make sure you know what your gf is doing with her male friends.

    Right i'll try and make this make sense.

    I was a back-up guy once. Once we ended our relationship im pretty sure the back-up guy for her was the guy that she ended it with to which I was the back-up guy for.

    Original person + her -> back-up guy (me) + her -> original person (now back-up guy to be) + her.

    Yep, I wasnt a rebound either, we actually spent quite a while together but as soon as we ended she was back to him!

    My ex bf has back up girls :lol: He just makes a lot of female friends, and picks a few when he breaks up with his gf, tries his luck with all of them (it starts off with "my gf never treated me right... " and then they're all over him) until he settles on one. same cycle every single time

    There are three kinds of lies.

    Lies, damned lies, and statistics.
