Why Do Women Cheat?
I wanted to dig deep into why women cheat. There is a lot more to it than you think.
Here are a few ladies’ statements on why they participated in infidelity. One woman stated, “I have cheated, yes, but on my husband before we were married. It wasn’t physical, but more of an emotional attachment that my husband (then boyfriend) believed was cheating.” As I’m doing my research there is a lot of common ground when it comes to women cheating for emotional support. As women we are naturally emotional creatures. We crave that emotional provision. Still not a logical reason to cheat, but is there even a logical reason to cheat? I believe that you need to communicate with your partner if you feel you aren’t getting that emotional connection that you need.
But on to the next women’s reasoning behind cheating. Another lady stated, “He had cheated on me multiple times and I wasn’t quite ready to leave him because of the kids, so I tried the exact same kind of revenge by sleeping with someone too.” There are a few things wrong with this statement. Staying in a relationship for the kids is not a suitable reason. Kids can feel energy. They can feel when mommy and daddy don’t really like each other. So honestly you are actually hurting your kids more by staying with each other. And cheating because he’s cheating is just so childish. We have got to grow up. We know that doesn’t make things better but actually makes things worse.
One lady stated, “I wasn’t happy in my relationship, and I was afraid of being alone.” You have to be satisfied with being alone before you can be happy with somebody else. Not wanting to be alone will keep you in a terrible relationship. Self-love is so very important. Relying on somebody else for emotional stability is the wrong thing to do. And it’ll actually keep you from finding the love of your life because you are too scared to leave the bastard in front of you. My momma used to always tell me; you will never find your husband if you are sitting around entertaining losers. Boy was she right.
Lastly a lady said, “There was something missing.” I can actually relate to this statement. I’ve been there. I’ve felt that. I’ve felt that feeling of there is something missing. And when you feel it ladies, run. It’s your intuition talking to you. He’s not the one for you. There is somebody else out there that you are meant to be with.
I think it’s safe to say that women cheat for a different reason than men. Women cheat for emotional motives and guys cheat for physical intentions. Some people could argue that cheating for emotional reasons is inferior than tangibly cheating with no attachments. But we aren’t going to get into all of that. Cheating is cheating. And its selfish, it shows a lack of character. Have morals. Talk to your partner. Let them know your concerns. And if y’all need to go your separate ways then do that. Cheating is never the answer.
