Men, always getting the shitty end of the stick to hold in a relationship despite the fact that he may be the better individual of the two when it comes on to making that relationship work. But hey, what can I say, It's a woman's world right? But what women don't really understand in relationships is that a man is not like them. A man thinks different, react different and is basically different. He handles his emotions far different than women and the difference is even imprinted in his DNA. Men are natural born hunters and as such their natural instinct is to capture some kind of prey. Whether that prey be rabbit, duck, horse or even women. Yes, men will cheat much more than his female counter part, but his DNA will just not let him have that tunnel vision of being with that single loving women that most girlfriends and wives turn out not to be after a few years of" getting used to." But if you want to know all the reasons why men cheat, let's get the ball rolling and read through.

Why Men Cheat
Why Men Cheat

1. Why Men Cheat - They Just Don't Trust Women

Many men who cheat tell me that they do so simply because they do not trust women and believe that the woman will eventually cheat on them despite all the love and affection they give. They believe that it is embedded in a woman's DNA to cheat at some point and they are just doing unto others before it gets done to them. This will allow the man to create that wall that when the woman decides to cheat on him, his heart would not be ripping like Freddy's claws. But instead it was an anticipation and it was just a matter of when. They also say that women are much too emotional and will seek satisfaction for their emotion when the husband or boyfriend is just not paying enough attention to them.

2. Why Men Cheat - His Woman Is Too Nagging

Women are beautiful, smart, wonderful and most appealing. But there are a few who are just over the top when it comes on to nagging their spouse constantly and eventually driving them over the fence and into the forest. Most men like a woman who does logical reasoning and do not pester too much. Some men van't even visit the toilet without his spouse's voice ringing in his ear about something that happened 7 years ago. There are some women who are just not satisfied with what their spouse do and will chatter negativity all day and night and eventually creating that invisible wall their male counterparts see every time she comes near. But the biggest eventuality of a nagging woman is that she simply drives him into a quieter and more subtle woman's harms.

3. Why Men Cheat - He is Just a Born Nympho

Without sex, I doubt if many men would want to continue their existence here under the firmament. Sex plays a huge part in a relationship for men. Despite what many "so called relationship experts say." Yes, we all know that without effective communication, relationships tend to wither away. But men only like effective and logical communication and cannot be bothered with the menstrual pain kind of stories which go through a windy road and back, times 4 and yet point has not been reached. To men, sex is much more important in a relationship than "chitter chatter. Men like sex and like it a lot. Their sexo meter is off the charts and nothing has changed about that since the beginning of time. If a man is not getting enough hanky panky at home, you can rest assure that he will get it elsewhere.

4. Why Men Cheat - He Doesn't Love Her Anymore

A man will cheat on his woman if he believes somehow that love is lost within the relationship. Yes, this scenario plays out both ways for males and females. But a male is much quicker to let his wanker fly north than a female would let her cat drink another man's milk. If a man falls out of love with you, most thinks he wouldn't think about doing he will begin to do, simply because the bond has been broken and to him you are just another girl.

5. Why Men Cheat - They Like The Chase and the Thrill

Remember when I told you men are born hunters? Well this is where the hunting game begins. It is the man's natural hunting instincts which drives him to go out and capture beautiful treasures for his taking. Those treasures comes in the form of a beautiful unaware woman. Yes. many women are hunted down and men see them as a conquest. The difference is that they cannot shoot them and hang their heads on the wall of hunting feel like a bear, moose, etc.

6. Why Men Cheat - The Sex at Home Sucks

Men worship sex, and if the sex sucks at home he will eventually go out and find someone who will satisfy is freakish appetite. His lack of satisfaction at home will play in his mind like the last Trump Tweet. It will haunt him and push him over the edge to satisfy that appetite and satisfying that appetite most times leads to cheating.

7. Why Do Men Cheat - The Woman Wants To Be The Man

There are numerous men who are caught in relationships where the woman wants to play the man's role as well as hers. They look down on the male and belittle him both at home or when they go out. A woman like this eventually begins to look quite disgusting in the eyes of the male counterpart and soon most women he see begin to look quite attractive to him. He will eventually go out and get his tail feather wet.

Have you ever cheated?

8. Why Men Cheat - All His Friends Have Side Chicks

For many men, it's either you ride or die. Meaning you go with the flow or hop of the currant. Many men are influenced into cheating by their own peers. They get coached into talking girls they meet at bars, games etc. Then the men eager thing kicks in where he doesn't want his pals to believe that he had the opportunity to be with a gorgeous girl and punked out.

Come now guys, cheating is never a good thing. It breaks the heart of the person who you have been committed to. If you know the relationship is not working out, sit and talk to your spouse and let her know you want to fix things or you want to go your separate ways. Don't start cheating in your relationship, it can cause pain and anguish.

      FYI - Even lesbians have been known to cheat! :)

      Clearly guys have not cornered the market on cheating.

      Some people believe women get caught less and don't admit it.

      I believe both men and women pretty much cheat for the same reasons. Anyone who has ever watched an episode of "Cheaters", "Paternity Court" or "Maury Povich; AKA "You are NOT the father!" is clearly aware that neither gender is standing on "holy ground" when it comes to cheating.

      A lot of cheating that takes place during our (youth) is primarily due to immaturity and ignorance with regard to making unrealistic promises. I can't tell you how many high school sweethearts go away to different colleges swearing they're going to maintain a long distance relationship for the next 4-6 years only to discover their mate or themselves being pulled into the social scene on campus, making friends of the opposite sex, partying, pledging fraternities or sororities and eventually hooking up with someone who actually there with them. They're not ready to settle down.

      In their heart of hearts this was not "the plan" they were just too immature to realize their promise was an unrealistic one.

      As we get older people cheat in order to hold onto all that is "good" in their primary relationship while addressing their other "needs" on the side. Very few cheaters are looking replace one relationship with another. Whatever they're unhappy about or feels is missing in the relationship they don't see it as being a "deal breaker" that would cause them to walk away or divorce.

      They want to "compliment" what they already have.

      Having said that I believe there are 3 basic types of cheaters

      1. The Incessant Cheater

      This person has never been faithful long-term in their life! They're always looking to experience the thrill of being with someone "new". For them monogamy is the equivalent of going on a strict healthy diet. It's not a matter of (if) they will cheat but (when). Their motto: "Variety is the spice of life!"

      2. The Unbelievable Opportunity Cheater

      This person isn't proactively looking to cheat. They may have a secret crush on a co-worker or even a stranger they routinely see in public at Starbucks or wherever. One day this "hot looking" person flirts with them! or Makes it known there is a possibility for them to turn their fantasy into reality. In addition there might be a perfect scenario in which the would be cheater's mate is out of town or this took place while they themselves are on a business trip. It's once in a lifetime opportunity! They're guilty of caving in to temptation!

      3. The Discontented Cheater

      He/she blames YOU!

      If you hadn't done or stopped doing whatever they would have never stepped outside of the relationship. More often than not if a cheater gets caught this is the type they will claim to be.

      It's the only one where the "betrayed person" might feel they had a part in the cheating and therefore be willing to "forgive and work" on the relationship.

      Note to self: Both cheating and monogamy are (choices) the individual makes. They cowardly chose to cheat because they either were afraid to confront issues in the relationship or they simply lacked the courage to walk away. Cheating was easier!

      Last but not least: Cheaters don't expect to get caught!
