7 Unarguably Reasons Why Women Cheat

Cheating is not something that is done only by men, but also by women. The only difference is that women are really good at keeping it a secret; that is we seldom hear about their stories. Below are 7 unarguably reasons why women cheat.

1. Low Self-Esteem

When most women feel insecure about theirself, they project that into the person they are in a relationship with and believe they don’t love or value him. Now they have a need to seek validation from others. This validation can be in the form of sexual, emotional, or intellectual attention.

2. Boring Sex

Women, like men, also cheat because sex gets boring in a relationship, University of Winchester Professor Eric Anderson explains. “An uncontested sexological finding is that the longer a couple is together, the less frequent and less intense their sex will be. Sex with another is hot, in a way that sex with your partner is not.”.

3. For The Excitement

Nothing is more seductive than potential and the new. So, Even if a woman is entirely smitten with her partner, even if she has no intention of ever cheating, it’s likely that she would end up cheating on him just for the thrills.

4. Women Are Suckers For Affection and Compliments.

Women fall for compliments and flirty touches really easily. When another guy flirts with them, she may think she’s just having fun. But in reality, she’d be falling for him even if he’s just having fun.

5. They Love Any Man Who Can Give Them Emotional Support.

Want to steal a girlfriend, just give her a shoulder to lean on. She’ll give you her bed to sleep on. Every player knows this.

6. Women Love Drama

Women get bored extremely easily and need constant attention and drama in their lives. Once the man settles down in love, the woman starts unsettling.

7. Revenge

Being cheated on is a very difficult act to forgive. For those of you who have been cheated on, you know how awful it feels. You feel deceived, hurt, angry, sad, etc. It also affects your self-esteem. So when a vindictive woman gets cheated on, the best way to make her partner feel what she felt when he cheated on her is to cheat on him too.
