There are reasons your partner could be tempted to cheat, and they’re not all because there is something wrong with the relationship.
It takes a tough man (or woman), to resist the temptations fate throws in their path. It is human nature to reach out for what we want, regardless of the consequences.
Sometimes when the relationship isn’t working out so well, it may persuade one or both partner to reach out to someone who understands and supports them. Sympathy can turn into attraction.
Feeling neglected is a major reason people cheat in relationships. They may not be getting the attention they desire from you, and set out to seek greener pastures.
Cheating doesn’t always mean your partner fell out of love with you, or fell for someone else. Sometimes they might not even care about the other person, and could be doing it only to get your attention and make you jealous. Love manifests itself in strange ways, sometimes.
People have been known to cheat, or even just pretend to cheat, just to get the attention of their partner. They might be so starved for attention, that they will do anything to catch your eye.
Having low esteem and feeling bad about oneself is unfortunately a major modern epidemic, and people battling insecurity often make decisions. Cheating on a loving partner is one of them.
Sometimes, love can be weird. If a person feels unworthy of their partner, you would think it would make them want to prove their worth to their partner. But sometimes it can make them cheat. Cheating doesn’t solve anything, and it just makes one feel worse about oneself.
Some people bolt at the sight of a relationship getting serious, and do stupid things to sabotage the relationship. Cheating on their partner, suddenly acting weird, or being mean are just some of the ways.
