You might be sitting there thinking to yourself: he’s got a good thing, why stray? The reasoning isn’t always that simple. Just because a woman is beautiful doesn’t guarantee a man will remain faithful. It also doesn’t excuse his infidelity but let’s take a look at reasons why men might cheat on their beautiful significant others.
She’s too good: Plain and simple. The pressure to live up to a great and gorgeous woman can be too much for any guy to handle. It doesn’t excuse his behavior but perhaps he thinks he can’t compete. So what does he look for? Someone more like him, someone more at his level, and someone he doesn’t have to measure up to. This is a personal problem and has nothing to do with the woman he’s with so women shouldn’t feel bad for being “too good.”
She’s self-absorbed: Chances are the beautiful woman you’re with knows she’s beautiful and that’s all she’s focused on – her beauty. This self absorbed behavior might also make her shallow or less intelligent. A man might cheat because he’s looking for attention and someone he can talk to.
‘He’s bored: After a while, there’s a comfort level that develops in a relationship and/or marriage and the guy wants something more. Instead of conveying this message to his partner, he seeks it out in someone else.
No Drama: After a while, some relationships can get complicated. Sometimes a man just wants a mindless romp, no strings attached. This is more of an escape from the problem instead of addressing it head on and dealing with what’s going on at home.
He’s insecure: This goes back to “she’s too good.” If he’s worried about her sleeping around, he may convince himself that she’s cheating on him or not worthy of her. So to get over this fear, he may cheat even though she is not.
She’s insecure: Some beautiful women are constantly worried about their looks and bodies. They’re always watching what they’re eating, spending endless hours at the gym and worried about how their clothing will fit. All this worrying and obsession leaves less time for a relationship and this is another self absorbed behavior that led a man to cheat.
Peer pressure: Some guys think it’s cool to cheat or their buddies are cheating so to fit in and be part of the crowd, a guy cheats.
Temptation: Women get hit on every day and if it’s happening in his presence he may get upset and feel the pressure to cheat, even if she’s ignoring all advances and remaining faithful. If he gets the same attention, he may feel inclined to return it.
She’s busy: If she’s beautiful and successful, she might not have time for her boyfriend/husband. Busy also means intimate time may lapse and this might lead a man to seek attention somewhere else or to help him get release.
Fear of loneliness: Deep down inside he might want to break it off but he can’t because he’s scared or afraid of losing her therefore he wants to have his cake and eat it too.
He doesn’t think he’ll get caught:
This one is plain and simple. “She’ll never find out, so why not?”
Fact is: she usually does (Don’ be the guy caught on Ryan’s Roses).
Being in a relationship isn’t easy. It takes hard work to be committed, be involved and remain faithful. Cheating doesn’t make anything better or resolve any current problems. In fact, it usually makes things worse and could end an otherwise great relationship like those of Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock and Elizabeth Hurley. The best course of action before resorting to cheating is to talk to your partner, seek therapy, take a break, or admit that you need to move on and see other people.
