Cupid's Pulse Article: Is Tiger Woods Capable of Being Monogamous with Lindsey Vonn?Cupid's Pulse Article: Is Tiger Woods Capable of Being Monogamous with Lindsey Vonn?

By Susan Trombetti, CEO of Exclusive Matchmaking and Relationship Expert

The breaking news this week is that pro golfer Tiger Woods and popular skiier Lindsey Vonn are officially dating. Many are skeptical of this situation, as Tiger is still getting over his reputation as a cheater stemming from the scandal with his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren. Well, let me just say that Tiger has so many cheating scandals in his history that I doubt he could be faithful again unless there are some drastic changes involving his inner circle, lack of opportunity to cheat, and possible therapy.

Why, you ask? For one thing, he is surrounded by “yes” people who’s financial situation is dependent on Tiger.  I don’t see them becoming moral against all odds and tying him up when he has the urge to cheat. They are loyal to him and will enable what isn’t good for him just to make him happy. They may rationalize: “It’s just women, and boys will be boys.”

Other celebrity examples of this is Anna Nicole, who was  surrounded by enablers like her attorney, and Michael Jackson, who was backed up by his doctor. These are drastic examples, but it’s hard to say “no” when your boss says “jump”.  In Tiger Woods’ case, he has his inner circle and his mother enabling his addiction to cheating. Plus, he has a history of it, as his dad cheated in the past. This is all he knows.  In my opinion, what he really needs is some therapy or a 12 step program to become fully aware of the reasons behind his bad behavior and poor choice in so many trashy women. Then, Lindsey may have a chance.

Here are some signs that a guy might be a serial cheater and unable to commit:

1. He excludes the word “faithful” in his marriage vows and takes issues with it like South Carolina governor Mark Sanford.

2. He tells you he cannot be faithful to any one woman. Let’s face it, that is what they are saying when he tells you he cheated on all his exes.

3. They have an addiction to cheating like David Duchovny.

4. They have cheated in the past, like Eddie Cibrian or Bill Clinton.

5. They are powerful men who think the rules don’t apply, like Silvio Bersculoni and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

6. They are men with big egos, deep pockets, and lots of opportunity, like Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods.

7. They tend to go for the “bad boy” or “bad girl” like Sandra Bullock did with Jesse James.
