  • the same reasons as women
  • "Men" don't cheat, some men cheat just like some women cheat...don't group all men as cheaters.
  • Becase some of us don't know what a good thing we already have.
  • same reasons as women.
  • Two reasons: 1.Because they're bored with you and the sex you are ( or aren't) giving him. (sorry ladies). 2. Because-even though you're a hot woman and are satisfying him fully- his male vanity and ego needs the extra validation he gets when he can bed another women. (the guy who succumbs to this is an A- hole) . Also, in office environments, there are many young, attractive single women (I've seen it happen over and over) who will not hesitate to seduce a married man who is older and has a power position in the company.
  • Not enough sex and are not satissfied with onw woman they need loads
  • HAHAHA Women cheat to. I like Women of all shapes & sizes so no one Woman could ever truly satisfy me. Hence I tell all Ladies I am into sex without emotional ties. I dont lie I tell Women what I am into and if they want to play great if not there are always other Women who like sex without ties. Honesty is the best policy. And yes safe sex always. I am into the Fetish & Swingers lifestyle. As for idiots who cheat why not dump the prude and find a Partner who is into the Fetish & Swingers lifestyle least then you can have all your desires fullfilled.
  • Prudes = BORING & FRIGID LOL
  • The same reason that women do they have a total lack of respect for their partner, the person they are cheating with and for themselves!
  • sexist much?? i think so
  • They don't. But if you raise your standards, you might find someone who is sincerely interested in you and Aware of the risks of losing you if he cheats.
  • They don't, and sometimes girls cheat as well. BTW, your caps lock is broke :-)
  • WHY DO GURLS ALWAYZ CHEAT???
  • They don't. I've been married to the same woman for 22 years and have never cheated on her. You might want to research the facts before you make such a bold statement.
  • The non-pc answer is that its biological. For millions of years man has lived going from woman to woman trying to spread his seed as much as possible and woman has tried to find a man to stay and take care of her and her young. Its his mission to pass on his genes unto infinity, and hers to have and take care of her young, but not in huge amounts.
  • Thank God there are more that don't than do.
  • to comfort others.
  • IT WAS JUST A RANDOM QUESTION LOL
  • Cause we're not really that good at algebra, but need it to graduate.
  • That question is illogical based upon the premise that always includes every man hence it is an impossibility and a highly flawed question due to lack of proper reasoning.
  • The premise of your question is false. I am male, and I would never, ever, ever cheat on my partner under any conditions or circumstances. And just to add: I would never be even slightly interested in a person who is shallow enough to make such a baseless sexist statements.
  • It's a basic drive as an animal. Survival of the fittest creates a drive in males to procreate with as many females as will allow them to. Females must be discerning to allow only the best available to fertilize her eggs. In this way the gene pool is mixed and better stock of humans is created. But we've messed that all up. We don't allow males to fight for dominance and many females aren't very choosey. Besides with our advanced brain we should be able to override these animal urges. And most do. If you’re having trouble with cheating boyfriends then you are not being very discerning. You need to make it clear you don't want that kind of shallow relationship. AND MEAN IT!
  • I was reading through the responses you have gotten so far and I agree with a lot of them.. a lot of guys do not cheat and a lot of women DO cheat.. but I am wondering if you have just found out your partner has cheated on you and you came here to vent and just ask the "why" did he cheat question more than just focusing on only men cheating. People cheat for many different reasons.. but one thing you CAN be sure of is.. it is NOT YOU or your fault. Even if a relationship has reached the end of the road.. out of respect for themselves.. the person who wishes to move on.. should end the relationship they are in before they move on. I hope things get better for you.. no.. they WILL get better for you!
  • The more oats we sow the greater chances for a furtile crop ;)
  • My man doesn't cheat. When you got filet mignon at home, you don't need to go out and grab a greasy cheeseburger.
  • WHY DO WOMEN ALWAYS GENERALIZE ABOUT MEN??? Seriously, though. I don't cheat. I'm a guy. STFU, newb.
  • guys don't always cheat... girls cheat too guys cheat for different reasons... girls cheat because they are emotionally dettached from the relationship guys cheat for pure pleasure sometimes... i guess thats waht i get from it
  • Nah its true Monogamy is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo BORING!
  • Cheating is fun but being a Swinger is even better hahaha.
  • Cause we can hahaha
  • women do too..
  • For variety
  • For many of the same reasons that women do. Revenge, vanity, thoughtlessness, lack of direction, lack of will or moral direction, loneliness, confusion, need for affection, to get ahead in their jobs, all sorts of reasons.
  • A complete breakdown in what makes you a MAN.little boys cheat.
  • Machismo. Some of them think that it's cool to have many women by your side. They think it's like being Cassanova or Adonis or something. Well it's wrong.
  • same reason woman do i guess
  • Because millions of years of evolution has written into our genetic makeup the instinct to procreate with as many females as possible in order to insure our place in the continuation of our species.You cannot expect a few centuries of moral social doctrine to change that. But all scientific explanations aside, I believe that women cheat just as much as men do if not more so. Now i know i will get all kinds of people commenting on their faithfullness being intact,and i do believe there are alot of them out there. It is my belief also however, that these people are in the minority and that there is a much larger number of people both male and female that have cheated at one time or another in their lives whether they want to admit it or not.
  • Because they have to assure themselves that they still "have it".
  • We men are horrible, filthy, disgusting creatures, aren't we?
  • "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence." Some men feel entitled to whatever they want, and they want it ALL.
  • Men have a need to feel admired and wanted. We fill that need with as many women who will show any glimpse of these actions. Even if they are getting this at home the need to have any and all women admire and want them becomes necessary in our minds and egos.
  • The reasons depend upon the individual man and circumstances. There is no blanket reason or statement to give.
  • There can be a lot of different reasons... It's impossible to answer this question without previos wide explanation of situation.
  • Here is some good advice for the ladies here... Date like a man so you wont get played like a bitch... :) think about it.
  • It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe.
  • It is not about men changing, but women changing. They cheat because they are given sex, and whenever they get bored or don't get any any more, they move on. If the women weren't so easy, the dogs would move on to someone who would give it to them, making someone else the one cheated on because of their stupidity.
  • Men cheat because: either a)one of their basic needs isn't being fulfilled in the relationship that they are in. or, b) the guys a slime, and nothing you can do will ever change that. So, if you're taking care of business at home and he's cheating on you, then it's the first one. If it's the second one, get rid of his ass.
  • Men want every woman to fulfill their one need. Women want one man to fulfill their every need. It's the nature of the beast and short of getting him some estrogen injections to combat the testosterone, there isn't much you can do about it. Cheaters cheat. Not all men are cheaters though.
  • because they are not in love with you anymore. period. love is one of the few things in life that is black and white. sorry to be harsh. but if he or she truly loved the other, he would look no further.....
  • To get better grades?
  • not all men cheat and the men who do cheat cheat for the same reasons some women do. and the reasons change from person to person
  • Because they want to know what they are missing
  • if you truly love ur partner, man or woman, faithfulness would be effortless......the true answer to ur question which i know you dont want to hear is that he doesnt love you. if he did, he'd be faithful. so my suggestion is to love yourself. be yourself. and true love will find you. just when u least expect it. and u will know it's true bec he will effortlessly make u feel secure.
  • Depends on the guy and his penis. Some are sweet and are willing to control themselves and some can't keep their sticks and stones inside their pants.
  • same reason women cheat...they aren't satisfied to be content with what they have.
  • fantasy
  • They are superficial and if they can't get sex or as much as they want or the kind they want or with the one they want, they will cheat and/or go for someone is new and get lewd. I think you could say half of the blame lies with the wife, for it is her "job" to satisfy him and give him what he wants, though it is not just about him, but her as well. If she does her "job", he shouldn't cheat. However, this shouldn't overlap into dating, for sex within marriage is right whereas pre and extra marital marriage is not "God's best", as Joel Osteen says.
  • Here are 53 answers to help you figure it out. http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/284608
  • Men appear from studies to be more sexually motivated to have an affair than women (who are more emotionally motivated). So, for instance, men are motivated by a desire for sexually experimenting and for having the rush associated with “new sex”. This is their way of prolonging indefinitely the early and intoxicating phase of infatuation in a relationship. They also do it for control and power in the relationship. If he is an affair with no promise of commitment then he controls his level of vulnerability in that relationship. Some men cheat, in fact, to avoid any real intimacy. Intimacy scares them, so they distance themselves from their wives by cheating on them, and they also never get too emotionally involved with their lovers. This way, they never have to trust, rely on, feel hurt or angered by their partner. This kind of man probably also greatly fears conflict. Many men strike up an affair when they start to feel the fear and loss that comes with aging. To run from the terror that they are not so young and invulnerable anymore, they have an affair to deny the aging, and all that aging means. They find something or someone “young and new”.
  • It depends of a guy and your relationship.Some of them are devoted,but most of them get tyred of the same woman,so they start to look for something new.But it could happen to women to right?
  • A man who cheats is damaged. A whole person would be man enough to walk away before he would cheat.
  • I just don't get it, so many of my friends has boyfriends who just cheat and do them dirty some women i know stay in the relationship for the money but idk why man just do it do they feel at times they have the right to. what do you think???
  • Males among all specie are polygamous and polygynous by nature. The animal instincts have not disappeared with culture and civilization. Civilized behavior has encouraged the males to have the best of both worlds. They don't realize they are cheating.
  • Because they are men! Testosterone is one of the most powerful chemicals on the planet and can cause men to act extreme. It's nature and they have a drive to create as many offspring as possible.
  • Men have affair for various reasons, stagnant sexlife, doesn't respect the person they are with, it's put on a plate for them and they can't resist thinking they will get away with it, alcohol, drugs and it's also in mans nature to spread his seed out as it has been since time began.
  • Pretty much for the very same reasons that women have affairs ... all sorry excuses.
  • not feeling loved - or feeling too loved - i know its a fine line you just need to get it right
  • I agree..and some people learn the hard way when they lose the best thing they ever had
  • they're horny pigs.end of story.need to proof they still 'got their game on'
  • You Might as well ask what makes some people become teachers, or why some people like Dogs or cats. It's all down to the individual person, and it could be for any combination of hundreds of reasons. Some do it just because they can, some people do it because they're in a bad relationship and can't get out but want something else, some people just go with the flow and only figure out it might have been a mistake later on.
  • Some of us were raised to think of ourselves better than to be cheaters.
  • How about the fact that we were having sex 4 times a week when we got married, and a year later we're having it 4 times a year. .
  • It could be something as simple as another woman showing interest, or it could be more complicated, i.e. believing you are in love with the other person.
  • Yeah..I would never live in CA. NC can be too humid, but parts the mountains here are wonderful. TN is a good state too. Jobs here are hard to find though. That is why I am trying my hand at bartending.
  • Some guys are total selfish and only care about getting themselves off Some guys have comminment or trust issues so they dont stay in a relationship for long Some guys are just sex crazy so they have no self control when they are offered sex Some guys date a women purly for their looks then when that inital short term attraction dies down there isnt enough emotional and personality attraction to keep them interested so they get bored Some guys end up dating a women who for no medical or emotional reason think that have sex once a month or even longer is perfectly normal or have the attiude that sex is a chore that she has to do to get over with as soon as possible Some for what ever reason end up in a sexless relationship and the eye start to wonder what if
  • Need to prove they still got the right stuff!
  • Because they can and they Will!
  • Why do women have affairs?
  • the same reason women do
  • THey are hypocrits!
  • Because the one thing that women seem unable to understand is that the life long monogamy thing is an unatural state of affirs for men, the higher the testosterone the harder it is for us. You only have to watch shows like rikki lake to see women howling at men for not living up to thier expectations of us. Often for men and women adherence to the ridiculous life long monogamy nonsense actually means no sex at all at some point in the marriage. Why people put themselves thru that is beyond me, why not renegotiate the relationship at the point when extreme familiarity has killed desire? Gay people do it quite a lot and continue in thier relationships. in the straight world its a taboo cos every one is taught to think that life long monogamy is right and everything else is wrong. Whose rules are they? they are certainly arent mine. My relationships are discussed and agreed, no assumption about compliance with one of societies ridiculous rules exists.
  • b/c they like to keep their 'options open'...
  • "Why do men cheat?" I have never cheated on one of my s/o's. But I have been cheated on by past girlfriends, so I am going to say, "Why do women cheat?"
  • For the same reason women do. Something is usually missing from their lives.
  • I think because something is missing from their lives, & probably usually is the sex. But not all men cheat. And can be some women who cheat also. It's the individual, rather than the gender.
  • Some men cheat because their wife is not having sex with them regularly, or how they want to have sex, so they want to find a woman who will satisfy their sex wants.
  • "All men" or "Some men"... humans all cheat in some way or another even if we take no actions that truly define cheating. we all do think about it in some way, and since their is no line, how do you know if were not crossing it? Most men, just as with women, cheat because they get bored or grow to hate the current so. Its always greener on the other side of the fence.
  • its good to get the blood flowing and if there werent cheaters there wouldnt be feminists...then where would you be? seriously though I am not a huge cheater, but when my so gets too involved with us "looking" like were madly in love, I get very anoyed becuase other women hit on me, it would be easy to cheat because my relationship looks like a fasion show and thats nothing but good advertising.
  • Unbeknowst to all men and all scientists, and nefariously omitted from Grey's Anatomy, is the small, barely distinguishable tube which runs between the male brain and the male testicles. With the proper encouragement, the male brain slips through this tube and becomes the captive of the testicles. Once under the testicular spell, the male brain is powerless to fend off the reproductive drive created by the testicular hormones. Thus, regardless of any emotional, well reasoned, well established or seemingly solid relationship with another of the female gender, the male finds himself unthinkingly in pursuit of the object of his testicular drive.
  • I dont think is only men. Women do it too. I dont think everyone does it either, but we are just human beings which is not an excuse but it really depends on the situation. there are many reasons why men and women cheat. you would have to ask the person that did it why becuase each one will have a different answer. In my personal opinion if someone cheats without being drunk or nothing like that; I'll say that person doesnt love their partner enough.
  • I dont cheat. Its the lazy way out of a bad situation. If I cant be with a girl anymore, I break it off. Thats the way it should be. Cheating is for people that are too weak to make the hard decision. Just my opinion tress, I hope this question is informational and you didnt get cheated on, that would hurt someone alot. good luck
