They cheat because they are guys.

I read this discussion about "cheating guys" and it reminded me of this phrase that keeps getting repeated whenever men cheats. Guys cheats because they're guys. Its like its a justifiable act when guys do it because they are expected to or generally this is the idea of most people. And when the ladies do it...its like they've done a mortal sin. In an affair, its the ladies who gets blame a lot. Isn't it kinda unfair when people say this? Your thoughts mylotters?

Yes it is rather unfair. But there is a mindset in society, that guys who cheat are scumbags who deserve to be crucified for every single one of their actions. Of course, whatever the reason, the woman who was the other party in the cheating, really tends to not get their fair share of the blame for the situation. It is always the guys fault, because obviously a guy thinks with their wrong head and manages to corrupt some more innocent woman to cheat on his significant others. Because that must be it. Women can and do cheat often times. Of course, both parties are equally wrong, whether it is a man who cheats or a woman who cheats. There is no too ways apart it. It is just there are times where men tend get more of a harsh slap from their actions. As it turns out, women are not the sheltered innocent flowers that society likes to portray them as all of the time. It is an equal opportunity, equal gender thing, that being cheated. You can go back and forth about who does it more.

Hi Donsky14!. I ever read about it. They said men cheating because of lush and most of it does not involve love. Women when they cheat tend to involve love, they found something that they don't found in their spouse. Its why when women cheating its more dangerous than men.

I know this post is about men and women cheating but I view this all from a different angle. I believe some people are not capable of being monogamous whether they are in a committed relationship or not. I've seen men who are alpha males who are not designed to be monogamous and their mistake is in deceiving a woman into thinking that they can be. I also see women who fall in love with men that they're not married to. I think there are individuals within both genders who are capable of being faithful to their partners.

I don't think being a guy gives him a right to cheat. Cheating is a horrible act and it should not be condoned, whether it's committed by a man or a woman. I don't think there is any valid reason to justify cheating.

Yes it is. When a woman cheats she is labeled a harlot or worse a bit%$#@h, but when a man cheats then it's totally different. Most people just shrug their shoulders & say, "What do you expect? He's a guy." Unfortunately it has always been this way & probably always will.

NEVER accept that! I know women who cheat too. The problem we are having with so many men cheating is because of this attitude that men are too stupid to do the right thing. When a woman cheats everyone calls her a s**t. If we start calling guys s****s and w****s, and making them have high standards, they will stop feeling so proud of being unfaithful. I have tested this myself. When a conversation starts to go in that direction, and guys are about to give a man credit for being a scumbag, I jump in with, he is a sleazy w***e, and everyone stops smiling and they back down. When talking about a woman who sleeps around I will say, Oh, she is such a playgirl. I just reverse the terminology and guess what? The guys don't want to be called w****s either. As long as we say ,guys will be guys, we are basically saying, if a man does not cheat ,he is not a real guy. Men can avoid cheating if they are good men. We need to expect men to be worth our time. The neanderthal men who think that they must cheat are men who are basically losers anyway. If you look at men like Mitt Romney, an extremely handsome man who has the ability to to make millions, (he made over 200,000,000 as a CEO) this in a nutshell is an example of traits women admire and would like to find in a man, this man has never cheated, because if he had, it would be everywhere. If a guy that he can avoid cheating, then the average guys most women come across can be faithful too. They just choose not to, and they hide behind this saying, I can't help it, I'm a guy. Are you going to accept it?

Hi donsky, I think you are prejudiced over the issue. If men cheat, I say, do the women cheat too in equal volume. The only difference is that men's cheating is explicit and women's one is most of the time implicit.

Yes, it is very unfair. Women cheat too. The difference is that you don't hear about women cheating. Have a great weekend!

I have read stories that you can find in the internet that prove women just have the power to start the mess. One, at a dormitory all the students have left for school and this girl intended to absent to hunt the owner. Two, a woman asks a young boy to fix a printer when the cable is not attached well. Three, used perfume and sexy dress. Four, leave the bathroom door open. Five, fishing over the internet for customers. Six, letting the guy hear her climax as seduction. Seven, persuasive smile. Eight, threat if the boy deny.

I would say that whoever cheats is the sinner! Whoever does the crime should do the time.
