Who in your experience cheats more, men or women? What is the reason for that and have you ever felt cheating your wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend - under what circumstances? Why? Please try to be as truthful and blunt about it. Thank you.

Based on my observations and experiences, men cheat more than women when it comes to relationships.. I guess it's just man's nature. If a man doesn't feel contented and secured in a relationship, their EGO says that they should be looking for another girl who will make them feel fulfilled. Men are more into actions than words. They don't tell their confusions straight on you, but rather, you would see it in their actions. But not all men are like that. I just observed that if a man doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay and if a man really loves you, nothing can keep him away. Peace! :)

Why want a man who doesn't want you in the first place? Try to know him better from the start especially his darker sides to avoid such things from happening.

In my experience and observation, it's been men that cheat more than women. This is not to say that all men cheat, nor no women cheat. If a man is cheating, more than likely there's a woman involved lol In observing men that I know who cheat, it normally isn't a matter of them not being satisfied with who they are already with, but a matter of not being happy with themselves. To escape themselves, they seek something that makes them feel better about themselves - temporarily. They continue the pattern never taking a good look at themselves and why they keep escaping. Cheating for some is like a "fix". When they feel bad about themselves, they seek a fix and then another and another. This theory doesn't apply to everyone who cheats, but I've seen it time and time again. On the flip side...I've seen men who are broken and a wonderful woman comes along and they feel great - so great they branch out into the world to test their confidence on other women and destroying the relationship they had.

Based on my observations you need to have 2 people to cheat so that means men and women both cheat equally. If you would say 80% of the men cheat and only 20% of the women, then either this 20% cheats multiple times with different men or the assumption is wrong and both cheat equally.

I think it used to be that men cheated more than women simply because they had better opportunity. They met more people and was away from home more than women. Now when women and men take part in the workforce and activities outside the home on a more equal basis I think it becomes more even. men and women where I live take just as much care of their families. I have never been cheated on as far as I know. I have never cheated on anyone. I do not fear my partner will cheat on me, as cheating is the number one sin or wrong doing he can think of. I am sure he would rather leave than cheat. If not he is nowhere near the man I think I am living with. Then his everyday life will be more cheating than any affair he could have.

Cheating has become a part of life in any relationship. Lets say it is one way to establish a better rapport on ourselves and what we really are. The more we cheat, the more we do not seem to know what we really want as we seem to be looking for "that" we cannot even explain. Do you agree?
