I never think of cheating , if I should find out my partner is cheating on me I guess it never meant to be because I would never stay with them , because all we build together would be for nothing . I will never cheat in a relationship , I would rather break up if my feelings are changing , I respect honestly .

Your a great person to be with. It is hard if the person you love turn out to be cheating on you. Devastated one will be if love turn his life up side down.

There is a familiar saying 'The grass is always greener' which is so true people think that it is more exciting more fun to be with someone else, when their own relationship have got dull and boring, they will jump to another one. All relationships are fun at the beginning, it's sticking to them that counts, it is all too easy to give up and go and find someone else then what happens when you get bored with them too? Before you know it you are jumping from one relationship to another how can you build on that? Some people just don't want to work on their relationships, it's all too easy to give up and start again with someone else.

It is right to stop before going to another relationship. Some just have a lot of relationship at once. It may be hard to be faithful but how can we be faithful at this time when people flirt a lot.

I've cheated in the past and it takes you nowhere...I cheated on my current boyfriend with my ex...that was some years ago. I guess I wasn't really over my ex yet.....But I have a boyfriend now I will not cheat in him, I rather leave the relationship. Cheating makes you more insecure than you already are...Because you do it, you always believe that your partner is doing it.

Well, I think people who do this are very weak and stupid. If they want to cheat, they should think more. It would be better for them to break their previous relationship and move to the other. Then that is not cheating any more. Some people just want to have everything. Truth is, most of us won't even get to have everything unless we get extremely lucky and work hard for it.

If a person is in a relationship and yet cheats on the partner, then a more appropriate question would be why are they in a relationship? If the partner is not important enough for someone to never consider cheating then the relationship is a mistake in my opinion.

I think the reason why most of the people who cheat to their partners because they felt neglected or still looking for something that they can't get to their partners. I experienced to be cheated with my ex because i got busy with my work and focus on my future which he can't understand and got very insecure to all my achievements. Now that I am happily married I know in myself that I will never cheat my husband and he will never cheat me too because we made sure to have a quality time to each other, we share everything and were proud in our every achievements.

For me, cheating is when it is clear that knowing the person is attached, or in a relationship but also chose to go out and be intimate with other person( the third party) and builds a relationship with them too. It is already cheating to me when the intention is to fool someone, when a man or a woman makes advances and shows signs of interest to other person who is not their wives, husbands, girlfriend or boyfriend.

There are probBBLY Sveral unknown reasons for why people cheat in their relationships. one thing has to be certain of this., something in the relationship is not satisfying to let the ideas of cheating slip in.

Cheating is in the human nature. It is really natural. As we are animals, when talking about some desires we act like animals without thinking too much. It was the man in the history who imposed the laws in the society (correct and good) and family. We have been taught this way and take it as being right. As for cheating... You should think first how you would feel if your partner cheated on you. If you accept it and consider normal, then go ahead, cheat yourself too. On the contrary, stop or try not having a bad reaction if she cheated like you did. Talk to each other about these things first, on what you think about.

Most of the people I know cheat on their partners because one them starts the cheating habit and the other one thinks that they have to do the same to become even with them. Some cheat because it is a bad habit for them that they have inherited once they start doing it. Much more, some cheat because their partner won't do certain things that others will do to them.

Not all people who cheated really planned on cheating. Things just happen without realizing that you have involved yourself with another person. But some people would really want to experiment. and not unless they are caught would they realize that they have hurt their partners.

People cheat for obvious reasons and none of them are actually legit. Some are bored and living dull lives that for the moment they want some kind of normality in a relationship that's not entirely real, they go for what is available now. When that runs its course, then what? Still stuck in neutral.
