Why Do Women Cheat on Their Boyfriends?

Have you ever wondered what it is that makes a woman cheat on her boyfriend?  If you are like most guys,  the thought of a woman cheating on you probably has crossed your mind at least a few times.  While you obviously don’t want to become paranoid about the possibility that a woman you are dating might cheat on you,  it is good to know what some of the more common reasons for why women cheat on their boyfriends are.  That way,  you can do your best to avoid it happening to you and you will also probably be a little more likely to pick up on it if it does happen.

So,  what are some reasons for why women cheat on their boyfriend?

1)  Not having a clearly defined relationship.

Some guys don’t realize that they are in a much more casual relationship than they think they are and this can end up being one reason that they are cheated on.  In this kind of a scenario,  with the relationship being a little more open than they think it is,  the woman usually doesn’t consider herself cheating.  You want to know what kind of relationship you are in.  Is it open?  Is it closed?  Is she serious about you and only you?

2)  She feels like she isn’t getting enough attention from you.

Of course,  the mature thing for her to do would be to talk openly about the way she feels,  not to go and sleep with another guy.  Still,  this is one of the more common reasons women will cite for why they have cheated on a guy.  If you don’t want it to happen to you,  then it is probably a good idea to pay attention to your girlfriend AND to make her feel comfortable enough to come and talk to you about the way that she feels if she doesn’t feel like she is getting the attention she wants from you.

3)  She is getting back at you for cheating or because she thinks you have cheated.

This is something that you see a LOT in younger relationships.  If the guy has cheated on her,  then the woman thinks it is her “revenge” to go and do the same thing.  Of course,  sometimes it does happen where the guy really wasn’t cheating,  she just thought that he was and so she is really not getting revenge,  she is just straight up cheating.

4)  She suffers from hypersexuality due to a personality/mental disorder.

People don’t talk about stuff like this,  but it is out there so it is good to know about.  There are some mental illnesses where one of the side effects is hypersexuality (also known as nymphomania) and if a woman does suffer from this,  it can be really hard for her to remain faithful even if she wants to.  This is a hard situation to deal with,  one that I am glad I have not had to deal with.

These 4 are just some of the reasons why a woman will cheat on her boyfriend.  If you are in a relationship where you feel like your girlfriend is cheating on you,  then you may want to read this:  Cheating ex girlfriends.  Because,  to be honest,  it’s just a really hard thing to have to deal with and you shouldn’t have to.  Don’t feel like less of a man if you get cheated on – it happens to the best of us.  At least you didn’t have to deal with it in the media,  like when Kristen Stewart cheated on her boyfriend and the whole world found out.
