How To Stop A Woman Cheating

Updated on February 14, 2010

Women cheat just as much as men do. But how do you stop those wily wenches from running about with all the menfolk in the world? And why does anyone care if women cheat?

(Before you go all shouty in the comments, yes, I know men cheat too. Addressing the issue of women cheating does not constitute saying that men never cheat, nor should it be construed as implying that it is worse for a woman to cheat than a man.)

Primarily, the issue of women cheating is a biological one. If a woman cheats, there's a very real chance that the man who is with her will end up raising children that are not his. His genes will not be passed onto the next generation, but the wily fellow who mated with her and left her to deal with the aftermath will have fulfilled his biological imperative.

That is the real reason anyone gives a damn. If cheating didn't often lead to children, then we could all sleep with as many people as we like without anyone caring. If instead of sleeping with people to make babies, one shook hands, we'd all be a great deal more careful about who we shook hands with, and we would regard women who shook hands with just any guy to be terribly promiscuous.

There are also emotional components to cheating, feelings of betrayal and whatnot. These still stem from the underlying biological drive to procreate however, at least, that's my theory. There are also quite often financial implications for cheating in this modern day. Having a woman cheat can not only tear apart a marriage but a mortgage contract, a family and much more.

So how does one stop a woman from cheating? Well, for starters, chose a woman unlikely to cheat. Some women are less likely to cheat than others. Women who have a history of cheating are likely to cheat in the future. Women who are flirtatious with many men are subconsciously looking for alternative breeding partners, which is why men get jealous when women flirt and vice versa. Women who spend a great deal of time looking approachable and appealing after a relationship has formed may also be at risk for cheating. Yes, it sucks when you get into a relationship and she gets fat and stops wearing make up, but you know what that tells you? It tells you she's no longer looking.

I know women say that they like to look good 'for themselves', but its a lie. A damnable lie. Women like to look good so they can feel superior to other women and attract men. Period. That doesn't mean that a woman can't take care of herself, but if she suddenly starts lifting her appearance game out of the blue, that may be a sign that something is afoot. A woman has only so much energy. In a relationship, that energy is often channeled into her partner and child rearing. If she does not have a child, there's a good chance that her biology is pressing her to be attractive in order to have one. Even women who don't want kids consciously often behave in this way. Why? Because we're animals with less control over our behaviors than we might think.

There's a reason why pretty shallow people often end up cheating on one another. If you happen to be a pretty, shallow person, you're likely to attract other pretty, shallow people and have a massive cheat fest. There's nothing wrong with that of course, there is no morality in the universe, but don't expect homely, placid behavior from the girl you met swinging her panties over her head in the club.

Long story short, you can't stop a woman from cheating, but you can choose a woman who doesn't want to cheat, and that sometimes involves looking beyond the nearest nubile beauty.

      Hope, if I had a dollar every time you made sense...People would think I was a very successful waiter instead of a Manager when I bought groceries.
