This topic always seems to interest me. You always hear about men and their cheating ways. We often hear tales of how they always seem to get caught because they’re too sloppy or their woman is too good at snooping. This got me to thinking…how come you don’t hear that many stories about cheating women? Apparently, the answer is simple…because we just don’t get caught!
According to an article I read on the Huffington Post, a survey taken in 2011 notes that out of the 2,000 women surveyed, 87% said they’ve cheated on their significant other. Really?! That’s a high number. What’s even crazier is that almost all of them swear they were never caught and never fessed up! So apparently, there are a lot of cheater, cheater pumpkin eaters out there. And no…I’m not judging you.
Whether those numbers are true or not, I’m more interested in why women choose to step out on their relationships and why they never choose to come clean. After scouring the Internet, it seems the number one reason woman cheat on their significant other is because of lack of love in the relationship. I can see how that would be possible. Women often have unrealistic expectations of their boyfriends/girlfriends or spouses. This is not meant to blame women, but we often times fault our significant others for not being the person we want them to be or not treating us the way we feel we deserve. These are all valid concerns, but the answer is to address the issue with your sweetie and if nothing changes…then move on. Often times, people stay in relationships that don’t necessarily work anymore because they don’t want to start all over trying to find someone new…which leads to cheating.
I personally think that women cheat for a variety of reasons; I am not falling for the whole “women are too emotional and crave love” bull. Not every woman is tied up in their emotions and I want to focus on finding out why women, who are not super emotional and needy (not a lot of women are this way), cheat! I guess you can say ANN is getting to the bottom of this.
I’m interested to know what you ladies think too! Why do you think women cheat? Is it for the same reason men cheat or is it all based on emotions?
