There are several male cheating types. Some of them are the most common though and you need to learn to identify them.

Men and cheating

Most men cheat at some point. Monogamy is just not in their genes. For some men though, cheating happens a little too often. And there are reasons for that. The following article will attempt to shed some light into the most common male cheating types.

The one who has essentially broken up

He is the man who claims that he has essentially broken up. He no longer loves the woman he is with and their relationship is basically finished. He just needs some more time in order to muster up the courage to end the relationship officially. More often than not, this time will never come, simply because that man has no real intention to break up.

The misogynist

This is the type of man who doesn't really respect or appreciate women. Even though he is quite successful with the opposite sex, he does not care deeply for women. Staying faithful to any of them is not something he can, or even want to do. Even if he falls in love, he does not allow himself to commit too much. He is going to cheat, so as to prove that no woman can really touch him.

The succesful one

The successful man sees all women as trophies that he has every right to gain and show off. Making a woman fall in love with him is a goal he absolutely should reach, but once that happens, he either loses all interest and walks away,or stays in the relationship but starts looking elsewhere.

The one who loves one-night stands

This male cheating type is basically interested in sex and nothing more. As he gets bored easily, spending too much time with the same woman is impossible for him. Therefore, he prefers having one-night stands. He always promises that he will call, but he never does. Even when he falls in love, he is not able to stay faithful.

The one who has committed too soon

A man who has been in a long-lasting, serious relationship from an early age, and doesn't have any other experiences with women, may have a change of heart several years later. In an attempt to broaden his horizons and wanting to prove to his friends that he is not that different from them, that type of man may start cheating incessantly.

The one who does not like confrontations

The man who does not like confrontations is not going to try to resolve the issues he has with his partner. He is going to sweep them under the rug and pretend everything is okay, while pain, frustration and bitterness will be tormenting him. A woman who will be willing to listen to him and offer her shoulder to cry on, can easily turn into his lover. Once that woman starts asking for more he will leave her, only to fall in the arms of his next ''best friend''.

Be one step ahead

The above are the most common male cheating types. Learning to identify them can help you understand them better
