Women usually cheat because there's something emotionally missing in her current relationship. I.e. He's become distant, not romantic, won't listen, doesn't make her feel loved, makes her feel like he only gives her attention for sex, etc.
Men on the other hand usually cheat for variety. This is why when people cheat, women are more likely to leave her man for the "other man," but men are less likely to leave their woman for the "other woman."
Another fun fact I learned in my psych class, when women cheat, they usually cheat with a guy more attractive than her current partner. When a man cheats, it's usually with a girl less attractive than his current partner. They speculate this may be another reason why men are less likely to leave their partner for the person they cheated with.11
There are so many studies on that, some say men cheat more some say women, I think we can assume none of them are correct.
I have never cheated but I would think it is because your in a long term relationship (or at least one you don't want to get out of) and don't feel loved and valued anymore, so your trying to get that somewhere else. Or maybe sex just became crappy after a while with your partner and you don't talk about it.
Then there are of course drunk hook ups, where the reason is too much alcohol and probably not much else0
woman cheat because the joy of cheating outweighs the negative feelings associated with cheating. Like men, they want the best of both world. Instead of cheating they could simply end their current relationship first, but they don't, they keep their current man because they realize he does offer something they want, but they want more and they arent'getting it from their man so they find an "add on", someone to give them more, while still keeping the man they have. basically, cheaters are selfish people with no regard for their partners feelings. Cheater, both men and woman, are willing to hurt someone they supposedly care about, for a moments pleasure. Ultimately they are selfish just like cheating men. lack of character is the problem.0
What Girls & Guys Said
I think girls cheat because they always feel like they need more attention but really it always backfires in there faces. Girls aren't the same as guys (with the rare acception of a few) they don't think about sex with other guys like guys do with girls. We just want to be loved and cared for and for some reason that has something to do with sex to us, even though these guys that the women are cheating with probably don't care about anything more then sex, its the idea of being wanted.
Truthfully I had an ex I was cheating on because I always wanted more from the relationship.. with my last relationship I never cheated because I was really in love with the guy.. then he left me for another girl and I still haven't wanted or been with anyone after that so I do believe that women if they have what they are looking for won't cheat.. its just when there is something missing or if they are a slut and just want d*** hahah :P0
i never cheat but maybe ladies cheats because there's still something missing on their partners..we can say lack of satisfaction, lack of respect, lack of love and caress, lack of care..if guys don't show the importance of the girl they can cheat on u..remember girls are emotional..0
the only thing close to cheating that I have done is kiss a guy that was not my boyfriend at the time2
I cheated on my ex once. I did it because my ex always made me feel like crap and I just wanted to feel wanted. But I didn't even sleep with the other guy, we just made out.0
I cheated because he was bad in bed but I didn't leave him because he's not just for sex. And he cheated on me first so its evens :)10
More often than guys know.0

but I have been reading studies that show women cheat more then men
^ what studies are these?
The standard is still men 60% cheaters & women 40% cheaters
How often do women cheat? According to studies not that often
What was the reason you cheated? Haven't cheated but the girls I know who have stated
1. Sexual satisfaction
^ the boyfriend couldn't get them off, was selfish in bed, or too small
2. Emotional distance
no romance/affection that wasn't followed by sex, low to no communication
3. No to low attraction
girls who dated a good guy to have a good relationship but were never attracted to him
^ I lol with these cases because guys are always whining about how women should date good guys not guys they are attracted to
5. Knew she wouldn't get caught
Plenty more reasons but those are the top 5 in my experiences
