    and the natural high of the idea of cheating makes it

    me some years ago, when he was caught cheating.(smile

    well it is wrong to say n hard to say who cheat more. bcoz if u do a survey n u find that man cheat more than u r particularly saying for those few individuals you cant say the same for all the men present in the world. It all depend on the person if he or she is in true love they wont cheat ever

    Studies show that men are likely to cheat on their partners than women.  But recent studies show that more women today are cheating compared to ten years ago.  I guess what is good for the gander is good for goose.  Still, men are more likely to cheat than women.  Why?  Because they can.

    I think it's men; always have been, always will be. Sad, but true...

    must agree that men here is the leader, but i believe, that not for long, because women are getting more and more influent in social life, and they can now stand for themselves better then ever before. This is why men are getting to find that they are cheated more and more every day. What i do believe also, is that women takes cheating easier then men, and this is how stronger sex is becoming weaker more frequently...

    Most people would rather cheat then go through a messy breakup or divorce in order to fulfill their need. It takes more courage to leave than cheat. In my opinion there are 3 basic types of cheaters.

    The Incessant Cheater
    (Variety is the spice of life. He/she is always looking for something new)

    The Unbelievable Opportunity Cheater
    (Someone out of their league, an old flame from the past, or a celebrity hits on them) They weren't looking they got "lucky", it fell in their lap...etc

    The Discontented Cheater
    (Feels neglected/depressed or unhappy in relationship. They feel justified) Someone came along and paid attention to them and filled in a gap or need of some kind.

    Monogamy requires maturity, self-discipline, along with the desire to place honesty as the top priority in a relationship.
    Cheating is a selfish immature cowardly act of betrayal committed by those who are too insecure to let go of a "known" situation before pursuing a new relationship. The problem with trying to access which sex is likely to cheat is most of the research is based upon surveys and it would be foolish to believe they contain 100% honest replies. Most women and men I know have been cheated on.
    (I'm certain women in lesbian relationships would tell you women cheat as much as men.)

    What a wonderful question, "who are more likely to cheat, men or women." 
    I think that it doesn't matter, cheating is cheating.  Most would say a man.  My husband back 15 yrs ago cheated on me, and told me later, that is why I divorced him.  So my opinion stands at men cheat more.

    From what I've seen, it would seem to be men... in the first "half" of a relationship; but women the more likely in the second "half". If that makes any sense?

    many women say men cheat more!!
    but who are they cheating with ?
    In my experience women cheat more but they must be cheating
    with men so here the conundrum continues.
