Why do men always cheat?
First of all, men don't always cheat, but when they do, here are some possible reasons:
- They are not ready to have commitments.
- They no longer feel satisfied/stimulated in their current relationship and are too cowardly to end the relationship.
- They are concerned about their financial/living situation if they end the relationship, but do not feel fulfilled in it.
- They like various sex partners.
- They crave the initial excitement and illicitness of a "secret" affair.
- They need to feel desired and their partner does not fulfill that need.
- Men are single-minded and don't think about the consequences of their actions.
- Some men cheat because they think they can get by with it.
- Some cheat because they don't take their relationships seriously.
- Guys cheat because many of them increasingly feel powerless in a society that is giving women more rights & powers in the domestic & public spheres.
- Men stray outside of long-term relationships to remember what it was like to be desirable and free. "Schedules" and routine destroy self image.
- The woman's sex drive isn't what it was when you first got married.
- Having sex with more than one woman is an ego boost for those with low self-esteem.
- Men cheat because they are bored in their current relationships
- The man perceives that the partner is bored with or no longer interested in sex.
- Lack of or poor communication with the spouse/girlfriend can lead a man to cheat.
- other people are something new and different
- you have no old baggage with someone new
- maybe they want something with ''no strings''
- different people have different likes and dislikes

Cheating This issue is best looked at through the lens of evolutionary psychology . Although it provides a relatively simple explanation to a complex behavior, it seems to …be consistent throughout the animal kingdom with few exceptions. Evolutionary psychology takes an observed behavior and works backwards to explain the behavior based on the ultimate causes: the desire to propagate one's genes. Thus, many behaviors (especially in mating) can be tied right back to the primal need to pass on one's genes to the next generation. It is easy to see why mating behaviors should differ between men and women based on the ability of a man to pass on his genes verses the ability of a woman. If a woman became pregnant at every possible opportunity between puberty and menopause, she might have at most 30 children (although a Russian woman gave birth to a record 69 children; about half of them were twins). In contrast, a male could father multiple children in a single day -- he could potentially have tens of thousands of children if every possible opportunity was taken. Going back to evolution, both men and women want to have offspring that survive to pass on their genes. Statistically, the more children an individual has, the more likely one of the offspring will survive to sexual maturity, which is the main goal. Just by this logic, it would be more advantageous ( evolutionarily speaking ) for a male to seek other relationships while a female is pregnant. A man will be more successful in passing on his genes if he takes on every opportunity to do so. This is essentially the basis behind polygamous relationships. Another consequence of the differences in the ability of men and women to have children is female's selectiveness in choosing a mate. A woman only has at most about 30 children to give birth to; therefore, the other half of her child's genetic code (determined by the father) needs to be desirable. Now, with that said, it doesn't justify "cheating" behavior, especially at the human level where complex social interactions are at work. However, it is worth noting that cheating is to a certain extent hardwired into the male psyche. Comments from Answers.com contributors Men cheat for all different reasons. But the one thing they all have in common is that they do not believe in the sanctity of marriage, keeping promises or being fair to the person they are married to. They also have another thing in common. They are unable to make sure they marry the right person and make a relationship work. They look for easy, simple solutions to boredom. I have been a relationship expert and life coach for many years. I have seen every angle there is on marriage, love and relationships. Men always make excuses for why they cheat, but the truth is that they are selfish and immature. Men cheat for a number of reasons... . they may be insecure . they may not know what a good thing when they have it . they may not like the person their with . the other person may give the man more then what their wife/girlfriend gives . the man may very will need more then one partner . sex with the wife/girlfriend is not good . their wife/girlfriend may have cheated on them . their wife/girlfriend may not treat the man how he wants to be treated . cheat may be all he has even seen for his mom or dad . he is unhappy . you don't spend enough time together There's a simple reason why men cheat: boredom, and not happy withthe women they are with.
My general feeling about flirting would be a big YES. We all at times, flirt with to get attention, or be somewhat adventurous.Flirting can be fun, but if we allow it to contr…ol our lives, our minds will wonder, and then react to such actions. Good if your single, but when you are attached or dating, it can lead to disaster and long term emotional pain. I definitely agree with this..men enjoy the compliments and the attention..that is what my fiance stated was one of the reasons he cheated on me. She would give him compliments at work when he was down, she would wear provocative clothing to get his attention. To all those mistrese's that sleep with married or committed men, usually have little respect for themselves. The woman my fiance slept with, needed a free ride from her broken marriage, but then again it takes two to tango. No, flirting is perfectly natural while in a relationship and is highly encouraged by marital doctors around the world. Also read it in a magazine
Women that are "trashy and unattractive" generally have lower self esteem and are easier pre. They are more egar to go above and beyod to keep that man. Most men that cheat on… their woman with an ugly trashy woman claim to be drunk when incident took place. Why? I think men dont realize what they have until they have messed around and lost it, then when they understand all this it too late because most women including myself wont put up with guys who cheat. It's common for the person your spouse is having an affair with to be not any better looking than you, or actually less attractive. Looks aren't usually the issue. The cheating spouse feels the other person gives them a "boost", makes the cheating spouse feel desireable or more interesting. If it was just casual sex and not an actual relationship, the cheating spouse gets off on sexual variety. That would appear to be a judgment call rather than a true fact. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", therefore what might appear objectionable or detrimental to one person could be exactly what someone else is seeking. ANSWER: I don't think all men do, and it depends on how bad or what kind. From my story the man I married told me that his mistress was a very nice and kind woman who is a good Christian. Trashy? well I found out that she used to be a prostitute, but because she change and become a good Christian, that is all what matter to him, I think. But if I could tell my opinion I'm not surprised at all because the women he got involved with in the past before he met me was a prostitute
Because women are sneaky and smart enough not to get caught. ANSWER: Let me put it this way, if the husband do make time time, make his wife feel special and never take her f…or granted, do you think married woman will be stupid enough to look for affection that husband gives her. I rest my case and no fun intended.
First answer: I don't believe the saying "once a cheater always a cheater." I have actually cheated on my current fiancee when we first got together. I felt horrible I was g…oing through a lot and my conscience was killing me. I finally came out and told him. It devastated him. It took a while to get his trust back. I have not done anything since nor do I have the urge too. Everyone is different so you can not say or know for sure if someone will cheat again. Second answer: I don't believe it either, I cheated on my boyfriend after i found out that he cheated on me. I did it out of spite, to make myself feel better, but then i felt guilty, and now I'm working on trusting him, and i don't have the urge. I'm not a cheater; I just did it because i was hurt and angry. But now I'm just happy to know that he loves me and i love him, and all we want to do is work on our relationship, and trust. Third answer: Once you cheat, it may be easier to talk yourself into doing it again, if you didn't suffer and cause enough pain the first time. A spouse who cheats and is genuinely sorry and values his marriage can learn his lesson the hard way and never cheat again. It's possible, but the burden is on the cheater to win back the trust of the innocent partner, assuming she knows of the affair. And if possible, the cheater should not confess a past indiscretion to the innocent partner. It's not fair for the cheater to relieve his own guilty conscience by telling his innocent partner. That's a painful secret the cheater should spare his innocent partner, and that pain should belong to the cheater alone. That is the least a cheater can do for his innocent partner. Cheating has never made any relationship better. It's better not to make a promise at all if you are not ready to do anything and everything to keep it.
Not really. I guess it depends on who the person is and what there known as .
ANSWER: Men who cheat never think of their family or his wife except himself. The thrill of lying, hiding, and knowing he can get away with it is the one that keep them alive…. Some might feel sorry if they see the wife fells apart knowing what he did. But there are some who don't care, will say sorry and stop for a while but after that will continue the game that makes them a man and alive.
-The question your asking can have two meanings. As in literally, HOW do men Cheat (What steps do they take, how do they perform? etc.) The other one can mean, ugh! How DO the…y CHEAT? -When people cheat, it's more flattery and lust that clouds their brains. It's the chase that's exciting, getting a feel of another lips. It's extremely taboo & that makes it that much more fun to them. -There can also be insecurity issues that they are having with themselves or from their spouse. Constant voices in their heads telling them that their other is cheating, so go get revenge. Which brings along all their own issues falling under the umbrella of commitment. -Some people and it goes for men & women, are just addicted to sex. Maybe they can't get the hot wild sex they need from their partner, so they go find someone who's willing. If they keep coming back to their other, they get the love making that fills the other void they long for.
This is an extremely difficult question to answer, for every individual case is entirely unique and comes with it's own circumstances. The individual's personality and e…xperiences determine whether or not they will 'cheat' again after 'cheating' on someone for the first time in their relationship. An individual who firmly believes in open relationships for example, especially if the relationship is open on a sexual nature, is generally more likely to cheat than someone who believes in monogamy. Even so, the factors that effect one's chances of repeated cheating are incountable. At the end of the day, only the individual can answer this question.
Hmmm an interesting question and I would like to say NO to this. I am an honest , loving and (mostly) faithful woman. I did however have one slip whilst in a long-term relatio…nship and cheated on my partner. I felt sick with myself and confessed to it straight away. I can honestly say it made me so aware how easy it is in fact to cheat on someone and really went against my prior self righteous "if you ever cheated on me we're over" attitude. It was something which happened and I regretted so much. I have never cheated since and can hopefully say i never will again!
Most of the time the men get bored with the women and move on, it takes an actual man to stay with the women until she leaves him for her own reasons. ANSWER; Or most men …when they get tired with their own routine, that's when they start looking for another woman. A lot of men do not have patience to be devoted so they end up hurting people they love. You wonder why it's always the men who get blamed for cheating or having affairs. When we asked married men why they betrayed their wife, do you know the first answer they will tell us? " my wife doesn't meet my needs anymore, or our sex life is not exciting anymore." Have we heard men says the reason why they cheated is, because they're not meeting their wives needs? Nope its not about our needs, but theirs...my own opinion..cuz they want to impress us and get us back
Nature wired males of the animal kingdom to procreate. But we have been programed with the lofty allusion that human being are not animals. We try to link sex to love, because… it looks and sounds good to our sense of being civilize.
Actually men are cheated on sometimes to by women.
Women don't always cheat on men, they really don't. Some women have and some men have, but most don't. Those people who do cheat are not happy or satisfied in their relationsh…ip. Maybe something is missing, maybe they are not with the right person. Maybe they were just not ready to commit. If one man has several experiences of women cheating on them, maybe they have been unlucky, maybe they are not providing everything they should in the relationship, physically or mentally, or maybe attention, or is his family, friends, job or interest interfering or getting in the way? Look at yourself first. Look at how you choose partners. Look at how you treat them. If there is a pattern , then you need to change it.
lack of trust to one another,,,
Why do cheating women blame the men when adultery is ALWAYS the failure in character of the one who committed the Adultery?
cuz they wanna have more boyfriends to makke them feel yummy like me and my 5 boyfriends: stanley,eric,skler,ashton and caleb... hope they don't read this!!!!!!!!!
The reasons depend on whether the man is actually really cheating. If not then it's because they feel insecure about themselves and lack self confidence. If the man is cheatin…g, then they trust their intuition. Otherwise they judge others by their past personal experiences of being cheated on.
