7 Reasons why men cheat on their partners, even when they really love them...
Nothing feels worse than being cheated and lied to by someone you love intensely; People who have been betrayed in this way may feel enraged, frustrated, disappointed and broken inside. While both men and women cheat on their partners at some point in their lives, statistics say that men are more likely to do so than their counterparts. Relationships are not easy; anyone can be vulnerable to an adventure, and the truth is that most men who cheat on their partners still love them. So, why do they do it? Of course, each situation is unique, but there are some common reasons that attract a lot of attention.
1. They are immature
It may seem a typical and stupid excuse to justify a deception, but the truth is that men rarely have the necessary maturity to know with certainty that such infidelity will eventually be discovered sooner or later. They simply are not able to realize that their extramarital affair can have devastating consequences for their partner or their families and that they could even lose the close people they love. Obviously, not all males enter this point, but a large percentage do.
2. They want to save their marriages
How is it possible? If you want to save a marriage, it is normal to not commit any infidelity, right? Well, the truth is that many men are not good at communicating. When they begin to have problems with their partners and do not know how to solve them, they think it is much better to look for that comfort elsewhere. They can feel trapped and unhappy in their relationships, but they do not want to be hurting their partners by breaking up with them. They simply wait for their partners to become little by little a woman.
3. They are insecure
Yes, oddly enough, there are also a large number of men who may feel that they are too old or young, few intelligent or not handsome enough to be really wanted by a woman. Therefore, they choose to commit an infidelity to obtain possible validation by other women, and in this way, feel better about themselves thinking they are worthy, desirable and attractive to others.
4. They have unrealistic expectations
Some men come to think that after marriage, they would have a huge and grandiose one. However, many are disappointed when they realize that this is not really the case, but that they have to assume certain responsibilities, take care of other people and fulfill their needs. They believe that their partners must satisfy their whims and desires 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and do not understand that their spouses have their own lives and other priorities (children, home, finances, work, studies). When these expectations are not met, they begin to look for intimate attention in other places, because they think they deserve to be happy.
5. They lack admiration and do not feel valued
Men like to be praised spontaneously, freely and genuinely. They work hard for their families and would like to receive some recognition and attention. If their emotional needs are not met and they are constantly ignored or criticized, they will feel neglected and emotionally disconnected from their partners, lacking intimacy in coexistence or marriage. Then, they consider an adventure as an opportunity to receive that approval, admiration, and attention that makes them feel good. This is probably one of the most common reasons why men cheat.
6. They believe that the relationship is losing emotion
When a relationship becomes tremendously monotonous, it can seem a complete burden if nothing is done to change the situation or if the woman does not want to address the issue. If a man feels bored with the day to day routine that he has with his partner, it's only a matter of time before one of them starts looking for opportunities to make life more exciting (especially if he does not do anything to fix it). Males often have issues to escape from the routine of everyday life and have new experiences or adventures. They will look for emotions, excitement, and novelties.
7. They are confused about love
Some men do not understand the evolution of love in healthy long-term relationships. They do not understand that in a truly committed bond, the rush of the beginning of a romance is replaced by less intense feelings, both attachment, and emotional intimacy. Men who focus on the romantic ideal, get lost in that short and intense phase and yearn for a passion that was present at the beginning of the relationship. There may be a multitude of reasons why men cheat on their partners but, in fact, most of them want to be happy and committed to their relationships. Therefore, the main reason for infidelity is that something is wrong in union with their partners.
Even being in a stable relationship, we are not obligated to stay with the friends of our "half orange" as many times as we can. While each of the couple or spouses should have some freedom when choosing their partners, everything is in order when you do not mind telling them about your plans for or with them. On the other hand, if we see that they have made new friends and they hide the details related to them, there is probably a cat locked up in the bag…
Very often it is the same body language of a liar, which can provide clues to the truth. In the case of unfaithful people, that can be found in the eyes (at the end of the day, they are commonly called "mirrors of the soul"). If you suddenly realize that your partner has started to avoid eye contact with you and prefers to look away instead of looking at your eyes when you are talking, be careful. All guilty people tend to do it!
