Top 6: Reasons why men cheat

06 February 2014, 15:06

The point when trust is double-crossed in a committed relationship its damages more than the way a hot surface interacts with the skin, the point when undermined it appears as though somebody dear to you is being taken from the surface of earth. Cheating in relationships is something that has been in around for quite a while.

A companion of mine asked me on Facebook  " Hello Daniel, would you be able to please demonstrate to me why you all cheat?" .

Cheating according to a close pal is a culture that the whole world should eradicate with immediate effect but it not that simple.Many don't really understand or know the full meaning of cheating ,they will say i never cheated i just kissed her or stared  at her, ass blah blah.

Different people define it in many way-you have cheated when you involve yourself in something intimate with someone who is not your husband or wife, acts like  kissing , feeling each other up, vaginal,annal, oral sex and any other contact that involves the lips, hands, and genitals, staring at another lustfully too, and exchanging erotic messages with a girl on the social networking sites.

Your partner might be unaware of it but naturally, you have broken the trust of his or her  by getting
physically or emotionally involved with another person.

Now the question arises why do people go this extent by cheating in a committed relationship?. The are several causes of infidelity.

I have heard people saying they did it for revenge, while others fall out of love or the find someone they love more,  some blame insufficient sex while others just do it for no good reason.

Below are Top 6: Reasons Why Men Cheat

Falling Out Of Love:
Love is a feeling and it can die off when one person eventually finds something exceptiona,l in another attractive guy or a hot  damsel. Many partners don't have any idea on how to bring back the flame into the relationship, like when they started dating so it gets boring along the way.

Sex Starved:
People think sex is overrated in a relationship, while others think there are many reasons why sex is important with your spouse. When you are in love, it can connect the two of you in a way unlike any other, but when you deprive your partner from having it to their satisfaction, they look for alternative partners to provide the thrill.

Falling In Love With Someone Else:
Men fall for what they see and woman fall for words, human beings naturally are attracted to beautiful people. The hearth can over shade our conscience, easily a girl of this era can make faithful men get out of control. You have to do any anything possible to prevent infidelity by making yourself sexy and attractive always.

Lack Of Respect:
I strongly believe people cheat because of lack of respect for their spouse so they betray the trust they had.

Peer Pressure:
If he spends most of his time with buddies who cheat, the tendency of infidelity is high,bad company corrupts good ones.

"She cheated on me and I want to pay her back", its happens in alot of relationships where one person betrayed the trust of the other.

Cultural Reason:
Maybe he is from  a certain part of the country  that believes in polygamy.

Sex Addiction :
According to Psychcentral., “Sexual addiction is best described as a progressive intimacy disorder characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and acts. Like all addictions, its negative impact on the addict and on family members increases as the disorder progresses. Over time, the addict usually has to intensify the addictive behavior to achieve the same results.” Many uses this opportunity to cheat on their partner, but it is not an excuse to cheat on your spouse, and it is no reason to remain in a relationship.

Majority of the infidelity are done intentionally, while others do it because everyone seems to be doing it, but what is the point of cheating?
