10 Reasons Why Women Cheat

When men cheat, it can fall into a handful of categories. But when it comes to women cheating, it’s not that simple.

1. Lack of Intimacy

It’s not just about sex. It’s about kissing, hugging, communication, all of the components that create that feeling of closeness. Once that’s gone, she will look for it elsewhere if she can’t get it from you.

2. Low Self-Esteem

For some women, sex and self-esteem go hand-in-hand. The amount of sex they have is directly proportional to how sexy, beautiful and secure they feel. Low self-esteem doesn’t necessarily lead to cheating but if you’re constantly trying to reassure her about you and your relationship, it could be an indication.

3. Revenge

A woman’s fury is nothing to mess with. If you cheated on her, she may find the right opportunity to do the same to you but worse.

4. Wild Oats

The term “sowing wild oats” doesn’t just apply to men but it tends to be expected of them more than women. There are some women who need to do the same thing but it was either discouraged or they didn’t have the opportunity. In some cases, cheating is about experiencing that which they think they missed.

5. Lack of Attention

It’s easy to take each other for granted as you go through the routines of your life. The problem is when it happens all the time. If she’s not feeling any appreciation from you at all, she will find someone else who will give her what she needs.

6. No Emotional Connection

Women are emotional beings. To them a relationship is not just physical. Feelings of loneliness can lead to flirtations that turn into affairs and trouble

7. Avoid a Break Up

Believe it or not some women cheat to avoid break ups. Dealing with the entire process can be tough for some. When women cheat, the act is irrevocable and for some, it’s better than going through the emotional drama.

8. Sexual Boredom

The sex has become monotonous with no chance of being any more exciting. Having an affair can be exciting and can get the blood flowing again.

9. Lack of Sex

For some, a sexless marriage seems impossible. But if your love life is non-existent for some reason, it may be a reason for some women to find that kind of physical comfort elsewhere.

10. She’s Built That Way

Now this may seem like an excuse but it’s a controversial theory that can’t be proven or disproven. Anthropologist Helen Fisher, there may be evolutionary motivations to having multiple lovers apart from just having more sex.

While it can’t be proven genetically, one thing is for certain; the reasons for women to cheat are as diverse as women in general.
