Top 10 Reasons Why Men Cheat And Will Continue To Cheat.

Why men cheat on women is as old as time itself. Dating from the time of King David to the present, men have been cheating and whether we like it or not, men will continue to cheat. Women have tried all means to try and keep their man from cheating all to no avail. So why do men cheat? Well, the reasons why men cheat on women can be varied. Nevertheless, we have compiled a list of the top 10 reasons why men---whether single or married cheat.

The reasons given by men for cheating sometimes have foundation while at other times it is absolute balderdash……a mere excuse. Sometimes men's reasons for cheating don’t even involve you and it’s simply an ego-based decision. Other times, reasons why men cheat can involve you and your relationship, or lack thereof. So why do some men cheat in relationships? Almost all men know that cheating is wrong, yet many still do it. Men will blame their reasons for cheating on their genes and their necessity to reproduce. They always say that a man is meant to sow his wild oats. This attitude has made us to be as degraded as the he-goat that wouldn’t even mind sleeping with the mother goat.

Here are the top 10 reasons why men cheat.

Reason 10
Because they had the option of falling into the temptation

There is an old saying that “men are only as faithful as their options” can sometimes ring true. In Nigeria, despite the loose nature of women, it’s not every time that one get to be offered sex, so when the opportunity does present itself, you can be certain that it is always difficult to turn down such an offer.

Reason 9
It boosts their ego

To most men, getting laid is as exhilarating as it goes. The tougher the game, the more exhilarating the chase and final conquest. There’s nothing like the thrill of the chase to men on the hunt; it’s like getting high on drugs. When they are finally get rewarded for their efforts, their egos swell even larger. Such men who need an ego-boost through love-making will never stop cheating. They will always need a tiny rub on the ego and the only way to do that is to cheat.

Reason 8
You grow apart.

This is one good reason why men cheat on their women. The two of them just grew apart. There is that discovery that their interests are not that compatible as he thought. His social, financial and sexual interests don’t just tally with hers. If he meets a woman who meets these interests, he will go with her.

Reason 7
You argue and nag a lot

If you argue or nag, be most certain that your partner will cheat on you. Nothing hurts a man more than incessant and unwarranted criticism. You tell me, who wants to be around someone who is constantly on them about something?

Reason 6
They have fallen out of love

For one or more of the reasons already stated, a man may be very uncomfortable with a relationship but they don’t know how to get out. They may be staying in the relationship because of children or financial reasons. However, they feel like they are missing out on love and may seek it out elsewhere. In their mind, this is as close to win-win as they can get.

Reason 5
Your sex life sucks.

If a man has a sexually boring and unmotivated partner who isn’t giving him what he wants under the sheets, there is a good chance he will have an affair. Just because you have a husband or boyfriend, does not mean you can stop trying. It takes a little bit of effort to keep your sex life from getting boring and non-existent. Some men cheat because they want to try new sexual things that their current partner will not try. Remember, there are more than enough desperate women out there ready to steal your man.

Reason 4
To get revenge

If your partner suspects you or finds out that you are cheating on him, he bound to seek vengeance by cheating on you too. Most men don’t need to catch you red-handed. Just suspicion is enough. Getting revenge is the only way for him to heal is wounded feelings.

Reason 3
It’s new, different and exciting

Men cheat to try something that is different and exciting. The new found mate doesn’t need to be as beautiful as their partner as long as she is different. Just as we like taking different kinds of meals so is sex. Tell me, who would want to stick to eating yam porridge the rest of his life when there is a variety of dishes to pick from? Picture sex with a woman the same way.

Reason 2
To see if they can get away with it

Men love taking risks especially if they know they can get away with it. The riskier the affair, the more exhilarating and ego boosting they get, especially if they know they would get away with it. After all, “what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her.” However, with all the advancement in surveillance spy ware, getting caught has now become easier than ever.

Reason 1
Because you have allowed it in the past

It’s always good to make it clear in a relationship that cheating will not be condoned. If a man knows that there will be consequences for cheating, he will think twice, with the exceptions of the daredevils of course. If you have forgiven a cheating man a couple of times, they are more than likely going to cheat again because they already know if they plead enough, you will forgive them.

Reasons why men cheat can be more complex than the above list or even be a combination of a few different reasons. Nevertheless, no reason is good enough reason to lie and be dishonest in a relationship. Remember, if you are cheating on your partner, your partner might equally be cheating away too.

After all, Karma can be a bitch.

All 10 facts well presented.

And (in a lighter vein) the 11th one is Karma. Or rather it cannot be numbered, so it can be 'zero'th.
