Why do men cheat?
I'm not asking that questions to say that only men cheat. We all know that some women cheat too. Nor am I saying that all men cheat. I'm simply asking the question because a friend of mine couldn't seem to understand why a man that really loved his wife/ girlfriend could cheat on her.
It happens. I told her that all men don't do that, though. There are some guys that really make the right decisions when it comes to being faithful and good. I have been both unfaithful and faithful in certain relationships. As a matter of fact, I was the cause of the end of the best relationship I've ever been a part of due to me being unfaithful. I will always regret the decisions I made in that situation.
Back to what I was trying to explain to my friend. I was telling her that it's a deeper problem than simply a man cheating on a female he cares about. Most of the time the girlfriend or wife has nothing to do with a man cheating. Most of the time a man simply does it to get something different or new. Don't get me wrong. Some men really want to be with someone else. That's why they may cheat. But a lot of guys simply make the wrong decision when faced with the option of smashing something new and fine. It's a tough thing for some men, seriously. I once had a friend tell me that he couldn't be totally faithful until women stopped finding him attractive. I've always thought that comment was funny.
To really defend my guys I usually go back to the way a lot of us guys were raised, and some of the things we were told by our family members, friends and others when we told them about really falling for a girlfriend or whatever. I always used to hear, "Boy you're too young. You have your whole life ahead of you. Boy, you better not think you're in love because you'll see so many other fine girls when you go to college.You're too young to think about marriage. "
Those are simply some of the things I heard. Most of us guys were taught to always enjoy what we're doing, but keep our eyes open for something better. Maybe that's also why some guys have problems committing. We always think something better may be out there.
What do you think? I'm simply babbling through this blog. I can only speak about the things I know. Ya know? OK...I'm back to talking about sports. LOL.
