Cheating in committed relationships is more common than most of us would like to believe. 

Men cheat

Here are the 12 reasons why men cheat?

To boost his ego.

Infidelity is an ego boost for a man with low self esteem – especially if he’s less successful or earns less money than his.

To end the relationship.

Sometime a cheating man will have what is called an “exit affair” because he wants end the marriage or relationship. Instead of manning up and telling you it’s over, he takes the coward’s way out, knowing that if you catch him cheating, you’ll leave him or kick him out.

He views it as a status symbol.

Many men consider it a status symbol to be able to afford a mistress. He may view it as one of the trappings of success.

To prove his manhood.

Some men think that the more women they have sex with, the more manly they are. They think cheating is a macho thing to do.

The thrill of the chase.

Some cheaters actually thrive on the excitement generated by a secret affair. They view all the ducking, dodging and sneaking around infidelity involves as a form of recreation, or a high-risk sport.

He’s a player.

He’s a hardcore cheater for whom cheating is a way of life. He likes having lots of women and pitting one against the other. To him, it’s just a game.

To see if he’s still “got it.”

Men in their 50’s and older sometimes cheat just to reaffirm their sexuality. They cheat to prove they can still attract and sexually satisfy another woman – usually one who is younger than their mate.


Though revenge cheating is more with women than with men, sometimes a man will cheat to get back a wife or girlfriend who cheated on him.

The influence of drugs or alcohol

A great deal of infidelity ( especially one night stands) can be attributed to the influence drugs or alcohol, which can lower inhibitions, and impair good judgment, resulting in behavior the cheater may later regret.

To satisfy his sexual orientation.

If he’sgay or bisexual, he may cheat on you by having affairs with other men.

Peer Pressure.

He spends a lot of time in the company of people who cheat. His workmates, or close friends are cheating on their mates. So he succumbs to peer pressure and cheats to be part of the crowd.

Sex addiction

probably the only reason on this list that can halfway be excused because true sex addiction is a medical condition in which the cheater really can’t help himself. If he’s truly a sex addict, he needs to get professional help. But true sex addiction is not as common as men would have you believe.
