Why Is Cheating So Addictive? – The Forum Speaks!
In this hub I am going to explore the minds of cheaters. In my forum there was a visitor that posted the question: Why is cheating so addictive?
The post has been one of the most active in the forum. My first thought was that I would see a lot of posts calling this user things like, “scum bucket” or “d-bag!”
To my surprise the majority of the posts were other visitors sharing their addiction to cheating as well.
Below is an excerpt of how the post started:
CHEATING IS SO ADDICTIVE!!!!!!!!!!!
I made a terrible mistake about 6 months ago. I had a little too much to drink, one thing led to another (sounds like an excuse, I know) and I ended up doing it in a co-workers car. (first time I ever did something like this).
I don't know what happened to me, or what made me do it. But ever since that night I have been filled with a VIRUS that consumes my rational thoughts. The intense rush I got in that car overwhelmed me and I have cheated several times with this same co-worker in an attempt to feel the way I did that night.
After this post, comments like the below started pouring in:
Also have the "virus"
Well, sadly, it happened to me about a year ago and I never looked back. Then my husband found out. We are currently in the middle of a divorce. I also don't understand how it started or why, but it felt so good I just didn't care anymore. But I must admit... now that I'm single and CAN do what I want without worrying... it's lost some of the appeal. What gives?
Addicted as well
It's normal, I am also addicted to that even though I love my bf. I don't even want to stop. I love the feeling of risk, I love the excitement and everything else related to it.
I had lovers, and I was in love with them, but still loving my bf. Is it trashy? Hypocrite? I don't know. I always stop the relation with a lover when he wants more from me, when he doesn't seem to be able to live with the fact that he is the second one in my life. Till now I had 4 lovers (of course not in the same time).
So girl, do what you feel. This excitement keeps my relation alive:)
The strange thing is, the site that these are posted on is solely intended to help those that are being cheated on. But somehow, the cheaters found their way and so it began.
The question, why is cheating so addictive? Plenty of supporting posts followed.
Cheating and infidelity is something that baffles those that don’t do it and are strongly against it. Maybe if the non-cheaters learn a bit more about what drives others to cheat they will be more prepared for what their relationship may have in store. Maybe it may prevent it from happening to them. Who knows?
So I would like to take this opportunity to once again open up this platform for those that are addicted to cheating. Maybe you will be able to help us answer the question:
Why is cheating so addictive?
For those of you non-cheaters, the platform is open as well to speak your mind.
The floor is yours!
