Why do people cheat in relationships?
theres something he/she is looking for that you do not have, or maybe they just can't stay faithful
If there was one partner that cheated in a relationship could there be hope of saving it if both people are still in love with each other but you have been apart for a year?
Answer . Yes, but it all depends on the feelings of the other party. They may still love you, but not be able to get past the feelings of betrayal from being cheated on, or the other way round. It takes time to build trust after something like this, and you must also ask yourself why you or the …other person cheated? Were you/they looking for affection they were not receiving at home? Were they having doubts about the relationship etc. Talk it over with your ex.. Answer . Yes, there's always hope. Infidelity, whether emotional or physical, can strain a relationship to its breaking point and trust can take years to build back fully, but it can be done. Having lived through this scenario and being currently extremely happy in my relationship, I'd suggest couples counseling as a forum in which you can both talk about the situation while using an objective moderator. I was never fond of therapists, but having someone to walk us through our feelings, doubts and fears so we could find solututions and figure out what we really wanted was invaluable. If it's worth it, do the work. Good luck.. Answer . There is still hope, it will take marraige counceling and a lot of work. Trust will come back to the relationship with time. (MORE)

Should someone who cheated on their partner with several people for several years keep that a secret if they want to change and stay in that relationship?
Answer . I think if you really want to change, this means get active. Go to counselling perhaps to figure out why you cheat and what measures you need to take to not put yourself in these situations.\nI would not tell my spouse. If you are honest about change and never do it again, you should no…t tell them. Unless, there is a chance they may have got a disease. (MORE)
Should someone who cheated on their partner with several people for several years and had an affair keep that a secret if they want to change and stay in that relationship?
Answer . Sorry to say that honesty is the best policy and you may run the risk of losing the one you truly love. The reason honesty is the best way in your situation is you are bound to bump into someone that will embarrass you in front of you partner or let the cat out of the bag. You'll alwa…ys be looking over your shoulder and it would a great deal of stress for you. If you want to start a new and healthy relationship then honesty has to be at the top of the list. Take the chance!\n. \nGood luck! (MORE)

I have seen this hundreds of times over.. Is he wrong? Yes! But, the key to getting him back is to uncover why he cheated… in the first place. it's not what you think it is! (MORE)
Do people view a woman negatively - or even consider it cheating - if she cheats because she decides she wants to exit her relationship but still hasn't told the guy?
Answer . People who are ethical would view this woman negatively--as a coward, a cheat, and a liar--because she violates one guy's trust in order to go out with another guy. There is no excuse for cheating and only a scumbag does it.
what about it? is it legitimate? in my opinion, no. would i forgive someone for doing it? probably no unless i was so madly in love with her I'd forgive everything anyway ANSWER: It depends on how far the person lives. Some long distance love affairs could be hard, especially for married man…. I could give you my story that happened a long time ago. If the man I married wasn't teaching at night school less than a hundred miles away from where we live, it will be hard for him to have affair with the woman he met on a dating site. He can not make no special trip to be with her during her days off. But his time line was on his advantage, because of his part time job at night there were free to do what they want to do. Unfortunately his class ends close to where she lives so before I discovered it, he was planning to stop seeing her. ( that's what he told me). I'll give the man I married compliment because his smart enough to think it will be obvious for his family to find out that he was seeing another woman if he make some excuses 2 times a week just to be with her, agree? So overall for married man who have affairs far from where he lives is a good idea, especially if he have a job closer to the other woman. (MORE)
Yes, if both parties have admitted their faults to each other, there can be a relationship still for the two, but it still won't be easy, as there is a trust issue.
my girl friend slept with my best friend and continuing her relationship with other men too.still she is not married.
I don't know if you could call it an epidemic but you can say it has always been around it has just become more public now. In the past years you didn't speak of such things let alone sex and now everything is just out in the open which makes it seem like it is happening more when in fact it is stil…l happening. (MORE)

You gave him a chance and he blew it, he alsoviolated the very important foundation of every relationship towork---trust. (MORE)
Answer. Sometimes we think that peope are having the perfect relationship, but we never get to know what goes on behind closed doors. Maybe there is a lot of stress in one of their lives and a lack of sex as well so one partner will go out and cheat on the other partner, not so much to get even, bu…t if they were truly happy at home they wouldn't be looking for love somewhere else.

Answer . A sexual relationship doesn't have to occur to make it cheating.

Boot them to the curb! Find yourself someone better...better job, better looking, better acting and better all the way around. The best revenge is to lead a successful life. When you appear with someone better, they will "eat their heart out." Act as though they did you a favor by cheating on you be…cause you are now available to live a better life with someone else who can make you happy and with whom you can trust. You could also enroll in classes, take up a new hobby or simply live your life alone for awhile...this is probably the best option. Just remember to "appear" to be doing GREAT! It won't take long before you really are doing great and this will be a distant memory and he will wish he never hurt you. Don't ever take a cheater back! They will definitely cheat again and again. Good Luck! (MORE)
if they r really sexy high. if just good lookin not so much. if its i would get with her after a few more beers probably not
Most of the time, whether or not you cheat depends on what kind of person you are. Often if you get into the discussion about cheating with a male you'll get to know what kind of mindset they're in. Personally, I find the males that don't cheat are ones with strong morals, ones that really love you …and/or ones that have been cheated on before and know how much it hurts. Its all about finding the right guy... or the right kind of guy. If you're already in a relationship than its a bit harder. You can do a few things, but these aren't foolproof and if he's a cheater, than chances are he'll still cheat. You shouldn't be threatening like 'If you cheat I'll cut your....' because then he just wont tell you that he's cheated, just let him know non-threateningly that it would hurt you so much if he ever did. Also, you need to make sure he knows you love him. Have you ever been in a relationship where you've felt like seeking affection from another guy because you aren't getting affection from yours?... Guys are the same, if they're not fufilled they may be tempted to wander, and if he's your golden mr right than he shouldn't, but you don't want to temp him to cheat... or even leave you for someone who he knows feels strongly for him. Humans are sexual, this will sound horrible, but you don't want to make him feel inadequite about his sexuality and if you're in a sexual relationship than maybe you're going to have to help him out with a little bit of sexual relief every know and again, so you're not sending him out as a loaded canon with instincts to plant his sperm in the nearest woman. If you're not having intercourse for reasons, than maybe oral sex, or even just using your hands can help. You've got your hands tied a bit here if you're religious though, but if you aren't up for anything sexual, just make sure he knows how you feel about him. Try to go with him places, if he wants you to come to his Christmas party at work, than go. Don't go 'I hate meeting new people, go buy yourself', you know how you'd feel if your partner refused to go and you had to go dateless. You might get to talking to the other person in the room whose partner refused to come and one thing might lead to another. You can always make sure he doesn't cheat, by going everywhere with him, living with him, working in the same place as him and/or always making sure you know exaclty where he is and when he's not at work he's with you. I wouldn't go for this option because you don't want to make him think like you don't trust him and smother him at the same time. The most important thing is trust. You need to trust him and keep him happy at home and he'll have no reason to wander. But keep in mind, that if he's a cheater already, than chances are you might not be able to change him. Even guys who are changing for the better have relapses, so unless you're ready to have your heart stomped on you need to realise when some guys are a lost cause. (MORE)
Answer 1 If you are not sure you should see if there is any reason that feels good to you to keep the relationship going. If it is only sexual you may as well keep him if he performs well enough. Just make him wear a condom because you wont know what sort of STD,s he may have picked up. And let hi…m know why. Answer 2 (ALTERNATIVE) Since the question is worded as if you are asking me personally, I say that depends on a lot of different factors. I feel that cheating is wrong in the sense that in order to cheat, it must be happening behind the others back. Biologically, it is highly unlikely for somone who cheats to not do it again. It is however possible to remove the 'behind the back' part of the equation making it possible to eliminate cheating. If both people in the relationship are of the non-jealous type it might be possible to work something out to make the relationship an open one. You would need to set ground rules for what is and is not allowed to be talked about as far as encounters in the open relationship. As long as both can come to an agreement where no one feels left out, you could be exclusive with each other as far as 'love' but both have your fun of casual encounters on the side. Keep in mind, for this to work love must be there for both of you. You both would have to be genuinely okay with this arrangement. Another think that you could consider is adding others such that the encounters are in the same room. For example, one time you can find an extra girl to join you and another an extra guy, or you could find another couple. Just make sure everything is fair and everyone is really okay with this arrangement. WARNING: If you do this, be sure to properly protect yourselves from STDs and get tested regularly! (MORE)
No! Well unless you talk to your husband/wife about it and then they say/decide that you can cheat. Some relationships they marry and then go out and cheat, well go out with someone else, but make sure that you agree with your husband/wife and then tell who ever you go out with and/or marry! No it i…s never ok to cheat ever. ANSWER: No love it's never okay to cheat no matter if you are married, or in school, or in the job. People who do cheat always pay hefty at the end by loosing the people they love, and loosing trust away from those people..So try not to go there.. (MORE)
that's nasty .... Well i don't know about it being nasty but if you feel like cheating your in the wrong relationship cheating is a pretty f***ed up thing to do to someone.... unless they cheated on you first then i say they had it coming.
Sometimes a sex addiction, large egos, narcistic personalites and many other reasons, none of which are good excuses. Even people with those dissorders are able to control themselves or seek help to control themselves.
There is nothing to show. If you are not, then you are not. If he doesn't understand this, then he is way too suspicious and doesn't trust you as much as he should. Tell him in a serious tone that you are not cheating. If he loves you and trusts you enough, he will believe you.
well, it depends from guy to guy..first, you have to see whether this guy is the kind that knows how to take care of a girl...if he is that kind and you want more time..ask him for some...just remember that no man is a mind reader..if you want him to spend more time with you and he makes lame excuse…s..thats when you should start looking for the signs like: 1. he no longer wants to be seen with you 2. he keeps going out to parties even when you guys have an appointment 3. he doesnt remember the important days anymore 4. or he spends more time on his cellphone or his computer than he does with you (MORE)
Actually relationship cheating has gone up over the past 10 years, but not dramatically. It's getting progress but it's moving at a very slow pace. But trust me some males/females are still loyal to their mates. Is there a need to worry? Not at all, if you trust who your with you should be fine.
The worst thing you can do. Long distance relationships are based on trust, and without it you have nothing. ANSWER: If your talking about can a long distance relationship works? yes it can.

Well people have relationships because they would like to someday get married and have children and have a big happy family. But other people want to have a relationship because they are very needy when it comes to "sexual desire" and don't care about the person that they are "doing it" with. They o…ften switch from person to person. People have relationships because they love eachother and they want everyone to know about their love. Relationships are great you should try one! (MORE)

I believe that some people cheat because that have nothing else better to do with their time. Others seem to find an interest in other people because they get bored with the person that their with at the time or their partner just isn't meeting their expectations. So people also cheat because their …friends think that it would be cool fo rthem to do. From my point of view though is that cheating is for people who don't have a life. (MORE)

If a child is in a family where there's cheating involved, it can affect them in a really negative way. Usually children look up to their parents for guidance, and if they know one of their parents is cheating, they will think it's an "ok" thing to do. It messes up their morals. It can also tear a f…amily apart. B: Gosh, big time especially if the children are teenagers. It will destroy their faith towards their parents especially to the parent who commit infidelity. Children always admire their parents, no matter what and if that love, respect is betrayed they are the one that pay. It will destroy their dream, it will destroy their hopes, happiness and most of all some children will blame themselves. I know because of the man that I married. My 3 beautiful children's dream and hopes was destroyed. I do hope that this will not happen to you or to others. It will be very sad. (MORE)
