Why Do Men Cheat?
Many women dating men seem to be worried about their partner cheating on them, especially with how often it is portrayed in modern movies, television, etc. So why do men cheat? What is it that is making them so vulnerable and indulging in sexual acts with other women without their partner’s knowledge? Well, unfortunately, every case of a cheating man is different, and the only people who may truly know why it happened, are the cheaters themselves. But we do have some ideas as to why men may cheat.
First of all, one main reason why men cheat is because their sex lives with their partners have become dull or non-existent. Over time, men may feel very annoyed and fed up with the lack of sex in their relationship. They feel they need to get their sexual needs somewhere, so if their partner isn’t willing to enjoy time with them in the bedroom, he will decide to just get it elsewhere without her knowing. There are also men who are eager to explore what else is out there. They could have a fulfilling sex life with their partner, but they have curiosity when it comes to other women. Having sex with other women will satisfy that curiosity, and men in long term relationships may like the idea that women still want and crave them.
There’s also a scenario where a man could be cheating on his girlfriend or wife, because he is upset with her. When couples fight, it’s easier to feel better about the situation by doing something they know their partner wouldn’t approve of. It could be an “in-the-moment” decision where the man may be acting out on his anger instead of how he really feels. Additionally, a man could be beginning to act out on a fantasy with being with another woman, but decide last minute he doesn’t want to go through with it. He mentally decides he doesn’t want to hurt his partner, but he may already be physically with another woman, and leaving in the moment could be very difficult if the man is already being sexually aroused. He may go through with the act of cheating, despite knowing that it wasn’t the best choice.
Also, a man could be ready to move on from the woman he is seeing. When some men are emotionally removed from the relationship and just staying for no solid reason, they may resort to cheating instead of breaking up with their partner beforehand. So we can say that a fair amount of men fantasize about other women, but don’t act upon because they don’t want to hurt the woman they truly love. But there are men who think they won’t get caught, and cheat anyway, despite actually loving and wanting to be with their partner. There are so many different cases, so it’s important to talk to your partner about their wants and needs, and even their fantasies. A lot of men’s fantasies could involve other women, but it could be a wonderful experience if he knows he has his woman on his side, diving into a fantasy with him.
