Women Are Cheating As Much As Men Are and Here’s Why

They say most men are dogs because they cheat, but recent studies show that women are cheating just as much as men. Here is why women cheat as opposed to men.

Beauty MarkWhen it comes to cheating women aren’t all so innocent.

People tend to believe that women are the main victims of infidelity. However, what about men who have been cheated on? According to Dr. David Holmes, a psychologist at Manchester Metropolitan University, women are having more affairs than ever. Recent studies say the figure is around 20 percent for men and a bit over 15 percent for women.

Cheating hurts just as much for men as it does for women. 21-year-old Devin Hill from Brooklyn, New York, says that he has been cheated on before which caused feelings of inadequacy. “I was curious as to why she was cheating and wondered if something was wrong with me,” says Hill. Others who have cheated themselves found it easier to excuse their woman’s actions. 22-year-old Ikenna Okafor from Edgewood, Maryland said, “If she knows you cheated on her and did it to get back at you then you can’t be as mad.”

Although the gap between male and female cheaters is starting to close, studies also show that both genders cheat for completely different reasons. Men mostly cheat for sexual excitability, whereas women cheat for emotional fulfillment. Frankee Cooper, a 21-year-old who is also from New York says that she doesn’t condone cheating but, “when a girl is cheating it’s not because they’re bored it’s because they are looking for attention emotionally, but guys do it for a lack of physical satisfaction.”

No matter what your reasoning, cheating is cheating. It is hurtful for all parties involved. It is understandable that some people like to “have their cake and eat it too.” However, darkness will eventually come to light. If your significant other is not fully satisfying you, communicate that to them and try to work things out. If all else fails, it may be best to just let them go. It’s selfish to string someone along when they clearly aren’t taking care of all your needs. Stop being greedy and find someone else who will.

Why do you think women and men cheat?
