Ever wished you could pinpoint the moment that your partner might stray? Well, thanks to a new study, those who suspect their significant others of cheating now know exactly when — to the day and hour — they might want to keep an eye out for shady behavior.
Suspecting your significant other of cheating can be a nerve-wracking experience.

So what if there was a way to bypass all that worrying and figure out the best time to catch your loved one in the act?
via: GettyIllicit Encounters, a UK-based website that helps people find extramarital relationships, recently conducted an eye-opening study. It turns out, cheating partners are more likely to contact their hook-ups at certain days and times, according to collected data.
So when should you be on the lookout?
via: GettyAccording to Illicit Affairs, about 600 texts are sent by cheaters every hour. But that number skyrockets to roughly 2,000 messages sent on Monday mornings between the hours of 8 a.m. and 9 a.m., making it the most common day and time of the week.
While it may seem odd that Monday mornings are so popular for something so shady, it does make sense if you think about it.
via: GettyWeekends are usually spent with family, and it can be hard to find time to sneak away and work out meet-up times with a secret lover. Commute times can be long, and an hour-long bus or train ride would be the perfect situation for a exchanging a few quick, clandestine messages.
If Monday mornings are the number-one time slot, what comes in at number two?

That might just make you seem crazy.
