Why do men still manage to stray despite how wonderful their current partners are? Let us give you some insight into the mind of the cheating man.
Ah, the perpetual burden of knowing that some people, no matter how well they’re treated, will still cheat on their partners. This may come as a surprise, but there are times when even the most awesome, down to earth, intelligent and gorgeous women can still get cheated on. So what gives? What is it that these men want that their seemingly perfect partners can’t provide?
It may be easy to say that a man would be more likely to cheat on a woman who is lazy, uncaring, abusive, manipulative or just downright boring. Cheating on her is the man’s form of lashing out because of something she doesn’t choose to improve. It’s a common scenario where a man may choose to blame his partner for his own infidelity. But what about those women who have done everything within their power to make sure their man is happy?
Why do men cheat on partners who give them everything?
If you’re baffled out of your mind about how these men find the gall to stray despite having a real keeper as their partner, let us fill you in on the dirty details. Here are some of the most common reasons men give when they cheat on truly wonderful women.
#1 He’s threatened by her.
There are women who seem to have it all together. They’ve got great careers. They’re cultured and intelligent. And they know how to please their man. But despite this, the guys they’re with might still cheat simply because he thinks he doesn’t deserve someone so awesome. This is not the woman’s fault at all! It’s the guy’s inability to handle this “threat” that causes him to cheat.
So what does he do? He finds another woman who’s not as great as his girlfriend and uses this other woman to feel like he still has the one up on another person. This gives him a bit of a self-esteem boost because whenever he’s with the other woman, he doesn’t feel the need to try and equal her success.
#2 He thinks she’s doing it, too.
Again, this may stem from insecurity and some form of paranoia. The guy cheats on his partner because he can’t seem to believe that someone who seems so perfect would just settle for him. He thinks that his partner must be cheating, and in turn, he does the same to her.
He may think that his relationship is too good to be true. So in his poorly conceived defense, he convinces himself that his partner can’t possibly be faithful to a guy such as him. Therefore, he preemptively cheats on her before she has the chance to do it to him.
