Why Do Men Cheat?

We all know that men cheat – but why?

It would be nice to have only one reason that men cheat – and even better if it was simple enough that their women could put a stop to it.  However, there are many reasons that men cheat and not all of them can be stopped.  However, some things can be changed. Here is some insight as to why men cheat.

  1. Opportunity Came Knocking

Sometimes it really is just that simple.  An opportunity arose – maybe that knockout at the office finally gave him some attention – and he simply couldn’t bring himself to say no.  Men don’t get offers of sex thrown in their face every day, so when they do – some men can’t stop themselves from indulging.


  1. Bedroom Boredom

Sex between partners can become monotonous or even close to non-existent.  If sex between you and partner seems like a basic routine these days, your partner may be getting bored, and could be looking for some sexual excitement elsewhere.  Variety is the spice of life.  Keep your time in the bedroom fresh and exciting.  Change positions, try new things – and keep his attention on you.


  1. Excitement of the Chase

Often, finding a woman who is attractive and wooing them into the bedroom is not only a great boost to the ego, but the process can be exciting.  For some men, it’s even a bragging right to their friends.  If your man feels this way, it will be hard to stop him from cheating.  It’s a game to him, and perhaps you need to set your sights elsewhere.


  1. They’re Allowed

Many times, men start to believe that they are actually allowed to cheat.  When women find out their man cheated, and then stay with him – this gives men the signal that cheating is okay.  If you are staying with your man after he cheated once, be sure he knows that strike two – he’s out!


  1. Love is Lost

People often stay in a relationship even though both partners know deep down that it is over.  Men are rarely the ones who will end a relationship just because the spark has gone.  Instead, he will begin to look elsewhere for emotional and sexual stimulation.  Hooking up with someone else at this point will be justified to him because he knows that it is only a matter of time before the relationship is over anyway.
