Why is there such a double standard when a guy cheats vs. when a girl cheats? what's the difference?

I don't see any double standards, a cheating is a cheating after all! But the general belief is that its the men who are the villains i.e. they cheat the most! And I am strictly against this thinking. Men too are emotionally as sensitive as women and they too are hurt the same way when getting cheated in a relationship!

I agree with you, cheating is cheating. society just tends to look the other way more when a guy does it and I was curious to see what other people thought of this.

The double standard is: when guys cheat, it is more acceptable in society because there is this notion that if a guy cheats, he is simply "being a guy" - that it's normal and is therefore acceptable. Of course that's stupid and it's good that you actually brought it up. It means that somehow, it doesn't make sense to you - because the double standard doesn't really make sense in the right perspective. It's mainly "cultural" based and we should all be more aware in equality between sexes :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!
