Do you think that the attractiveness of a partner causes the dwindling of trust

    Do you think that the attractiveness of a partner causes the dwindling of trust in relationships?

    I have noted that attractive women tend to have cheating spouses. The cheating spouse might not be as attractive as his/her partner and feel the need to stray because they believe their partner will do so eventually.  Of course this is open for discussion and any answers will be appreciated.

    Well, I do not agree with the statement completely. I feel it is not the attractiveness of the partners that can cause dwindling of trust in a relationship - a lot of times it is the nature of the partner though. If your partner is a flirt by nature, it might lead to dwindling of trust.

    I would have to agree with both.  Both factors can contribute to the dwindling of trust in a relationship.   The Attractiveness of their partner comes from their own insecurity.  And their partners flirtatious nature is well, it speaks for itself.

    I think it's unlikely someone cheats on their mate simply because they are attractive. I'm fairly certain unattractive/plain looking people get cheated on just as much. However they're less likely to be famous.  People cheat for a variety of "reasons".
    I imagine it might be difficult to walk in someone else's shadow or being made to always feel like "the lucky one". If a person finds themself in a relationship where their attractive mate does make them feel equally special if not in public at least in private..... It probably doesn't take much for a stranger to put a smile on the face or in the heart of someone who feels neglected or taken for granted. Loving couples usually make an effort to let their mates know how special they are.

    Fact number 1, different people have different taste and find different people attractive, for example, despite the fact I am sexually attracted to most woman that society consider to be attractive, there are a few I am not sexually attracted at all, for example I am not attracted to Jenifer Hawkins, who is a former Miss Universe and she is consider as one of the most beautiful woman in the world!!!

    Fact Number 2, not all attractive girls are good people, some are good other are ass holes, if a girl is attractive but is a total ass, they would still get dump eventually, especially after the sex.  Of course in my experience, most beautiful girls are pretty good decent people, but there are always a small handfull of them who are complete prick, so i can totally imagin their boy friends, cheating on them and then dumping them and because they are hot, they would have more guys going after them to begin with, despite the fact they are pricks, because some of the guys are horny and plan to dump they after the sex, other found out they are ass, after they dated and want out

    There is an old song and in the lyrics it says: "If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, get an ugly girl to be your wife."

      This one has fooled many a man. Another expression goes, "What does he see in her?" Cheaters are not always attracted to good looks. Some people are attracted to certain character traits, sexual performance, financial status, behaviors, etc.

    A cheater is going to cheat regardless of what the partner looks like. Cheaters have personal problems. Sometimes they feel sexual inadequate and want reassurance from others to feel empowered. Some are greedy, selfish, and unloving toward their spouses.
