Okay. First of all, it’s important to note that not all men are cheaters. There are plenty of boyfriends out there who always stay honest, loyal, and faithful to their women. These are the kinds of guys who don’t cheat on their women because they know that there is no room for infidelity in any kind of love. These are the mature men who know that true love isn’t something that you should be taking for granted.
And these are the same kinds of guys who know that when a relationship fails, they should be man enough to end it in an honorable manner. They don’t resort to cheating and infidelity as a form of self-sabotage for the relationship. They don’t look to get with another girl even when they’re currently engaged in a relationship.
If you are wondering why you have yet to meet this kind of guy, then it’s probably because you’ve just been surrounding yourself with the wrong types of guys. You seriously might want to rethink the types of guys you hang around with. And that’s only the start of the battle.
The best way for you to combat cheating in a relationship is for you to understand why it even happens in the first place. And of course, there is going to be a lot of things said about the matter on various blogs, websites, articles, and books. But if you have yet to expose yourself on any of the ins and outs that surround this issue, you might find that it’s not as complex as you might think it to be. You have to understand that a man’s approach to love and relationships isn’t going to be so complicated. And the motivations that drive a man to be unfaithful in his relationship aren’t going to be so complicated either.
If you’re curious to know what those reasons are, then just continue to read on. The simplicity of it all may surprise you when it’s all said and done.
1. Boys cheat to get out of relationships they don’t want to be a part of.
There are times when a man can just fail to be a man. He isn’t happy about how the relationship has turned out, and instead of confronting you about it, he chooses to engage in self-sabotage by cheating on you. It’s just cowardly and heartbreaking.
2. Boys cheat because all they ever really wanted was sex.
As terrible as it might be to think about, there are just some boys who get into relationships purely for the sole purpose of having sex. They aren’t really in it for the love, affection, and companionship. They just want the sex. And when that’s the case, there is no real emotional connection that would compel them to stay loyal in a relationship.
3. Boys cheat because they are too weak to resist the external temptations.
Some boys are just too weak. He might see that a woman is practically throwing herself at him and he will be helpless to her advances. Maybe he will say that he was intoxicated and that he wasn’t in the right mind. Perhaps he will say that he didn’t really know what he was doing. But the truth is that he was just being very weak in that moment and he made a stupid decision.
4. Boys cheat because they’ve gotten away with it in previous relationships.
A lot of times, it’s a lack of repercussion and accountability that can lead a man to become a serial cheater in relationships. Maybe he has just happened to cheat on women in the past and he managed to get away with it. He was never made to confront the repercussions of his actions and so he feels somewhat justified in cheating again and again.
5. Boys cheat because it’s what they’re typically exposed to.
There are so many cases of boys who just cheat on their women because they are mostly exposed to that kind of behavior from other men. Perhaps they grew up in households wherein infidelity was rampant. Maybe they are always surrounding themselves with other men who happen to cheat on their women in relationships as well. It’s that kind of exposure that leads them to adopt these traits for themselves.
But again, it’s always important to note that just because there are a few bad apples doesn’t mean that you should spoil your idea of love. Love is always something that is worth pursuing and there are so many boys out there who are willing to pursue it with you. These are the boys who are worth taking a chance on. These are the guys who would do everything in their power to find success in a life of love with you. They would never do or say anything that would make you feel hurt or betrayed. They would never do anything to make you feel like you are deserving of anything less than the best.
