the chief reason someone cheats is to fill a need that is not being met within the confines of their official relationship,... pretty simple,... that doesn’t discriminate between men and women,... its gender neutral to seek what you need/want,.. until you find it,... weather within the confines of your relationship or not.
Absolutely! Human beings are driven to (feel good) about their life.
The "goal" of any cheater is to (hold onto all that is good) in their "primary relationship" while addressing their other "needs" (on the side).
They are too cowardly to make the decision to divorce or breakup with you BEFORE they start anew with someone else. Much like someone who wouldn't dream of quitting a job before they have another one "lined up".
Cheaters don't want to go through the upheaval, drama, and oftentimes expense that comes with walking away. Naturally their act of cheating could lead to the breakup they want to avoid.
The reflex or rhetorical question a betrayed person asks a cheater is "Why?" The truth is we really don't care (why)! It's not as though there is anything they could say which would cause us to say, "I can see why you did it now. Thanks for explaining it to me." The answer to "why?" is "I didn't think I would get caught."
That's the only real HONEST answer to the (why) question. The "goal" as I mentioned from the start was to (hold onto) the good in their primary relationship while addressing their other "needs" on the side. Those "needs" will vary from person to person.
Most of the time people cheat because something is missing in their relationship. That could be lack so sex, support (emotionally) or even general interest. They clearly have something in the relationship that keeps them around, which is why they cheat vs breaking up. People even cheat for the thrill of it. It's new and exciting like how things were when they first entered their relationship. And the thought of getting cought excited some even more. Do they necessarily want to get cought and deal with all that comes with that? No, not usually. Just the selfishness and greadiness of human nature.
Very true! Some people bore easily and seek the "excitement" that comes with getting involved with "new people". As you pointed out they don't want to breakup with the person they have a relationship with. I call this type "Incessant cheaters".

Is it harder for men to end a relationship than women?I have noticed on television as well as in my actual life that many men as well as my guy friends have a hard time letting go of a relationship. Some are willing to cheat instead of saying its over. This is not true for all men, so what makes it...

Having a husband or boyfriend who cheated is a big hit to your self esteem. You begin to doubt your marriage and your ability to make your husband happy or to be enough. And there are tons of old stereotypes which imply that if a man cheats, it’s because his wife doesn’t understand him, he’s...
