Many people were interested to find out why women cheat on the men they love, so we decided to also explore why men also cheat.
200 men were surveyed. Some had cheated before, others hadn’t. 48% of the men that had cheated said that they did it because they were emotionally dissatisfied. They felt like they weren’t an equal part of the relationship or weren’t being heard. Men do not express feelings as women do most of the time, so this was their venting method of choice. Surprisingly only 8% of the men said that it was because they weren’t happy with their s*e*x life.
66% of the men that had cheated felt guilty while they were having the affair. They knew it was wrong, and yet they did it anyway. 68% regretted ever having the affair in the first place, but unfortunately, you can’t take back what is alreadydone.
Peer pressure and looking ‘cool’ for friends appears to be a huge factor when it comes to cheating as 77% of the men that had cheated had a good friend who was also a cheater. In order to avoid cheating, men fare better in a more nurturing and moral environment.
So where do these men meet the women they cheat with? Do they pick them up in bars and have one night stands? Mostly, no! 40% met them at work, and 73% got to know the woman for a month or longer before cheating. This is may be why many females are not comfortable with their partner having a close female friend.
Word to the wise ladies: Listen to your man. Make him feel like he is part of the team and he is appreciated and respected and he will be less likely to stray.
