What do you understand cheating to be? Does watching pornography count as cheating? What about online webcam sex? If you are playing around on some hookup apps but really never actually hook up in person, is that cheating? If you’re talking with an old flame online, is that a form of cheating? What about playing virtual-reality sex games? Is that also cheating?
It’s certain that you and your partner probably might have different ideas about the actions that do and do not qualify as cheating. There is so much uncertainty about what does and does not qualify as cheating, i believe it is high time we had a universal, digital-era definition of what cheating is.
Cheating from my understanding is the severing or breaking of trust that happens when you deliberately keep intimate and meaningful secrets from your partner. This definition can be viewed as universal because it does not pick a specific action as its vital point but encompasses all of the different actions that can make individuals lose trust and loyalty in a relationship. The loss of of trust in a relationship is the crux of infidelity, and it is what every cheater tries to repair if they hope to salvage the relationship that has been damaged.
People cheat In relationships for various reasons, some of these reasons are justifiable while some of the others are just plain stupid. When men cheat on women it often takes a toll on them, leaving them to keep wondering why they deserved such a terrible thing done to them. Questions like – why would he cheat on me? Why did he cheat on me if he loves me? Is he in love with me? Why me?
There are many reasons why he cheated on you and love has nothing to do with any of them. I will highlight some of the probable reasons why he cheated on you in spite of loving you;
REASONS WHY MEN CHEAT IN SPITE OF LOVE CLAIMS:
There is a huge possibility that he lied about loving you in the first place, men and partners in general lie about how they truly feel. He probably doesn’t truly love you like he claims and him cheating on you is only possible because he probably didn’t not feel any emotional commitment in the first place.
Him being immature is another reason why he cheated on you regardless of his claims of loving you. Immature men are easily prone to cheating, they have no control over their actions and would not think about the consequences or people affected by their decisions.
Another probable cause for him cheating on you is because his emotional needs are not being met in the relationship. It is very common for people who feel like their emotional needs are not being met to look outside of the relationship for fulfillment of that desire.
Men would cheat if they are not getting the satisfaction they want in their relationship sexually. Men are naturally sexual being and constantly crave sexual satisfaction and when their relationship fails to satisfy those needs they would go outside of the relationship to get that.
Insecure men tend to cheat in their relationship because they feel a need for constant validation and reassurance. The fear of not being good enough for their partner always makes them want to search for ways they can feel like they are wanted and desired by others, there by making them feel worthy of being with you. It is a negative trait found in some men.
Men who are egomaniac feel the constant need to satisfy the desire to stroke their ego. Being able to get any girl they want at any time is what strokes the ego of men like this. So men like this would cheat on their Partners without a care whatsoever of how their partner would feel.
These are some of the reasons a man would cheat on you despite him claiming to love you, from these you can understand that him professing his love is not enough for him not to cheat on you if the temptation arises.
