  • Because 9 times out of 10 couples that are together for a long while get bored/tired of one another. It usually revolves around one of the two trying harder than the other. The flame the couple once had is barely lit! Instead ofctryi ng to spark the flame with your life partner usually the man will spark things with new/other females. I say USUALLY! But if I had to guess I would say about 75% of the time it's the male and 25% of the time it's the female that looks elsewhere for another spark to a new flame!

  • Because they have a low EQ and a shitty moral compass. It's so simple... if you want to be with someone else, break up with the person you're with so you avoid hurting the person you're with. You're a scumbag if you knowingly cheat and stay in a relationship.

    • Most cheaters are men and they can't break up with there wife's because he's scared maybe the wife is abusive and he does not wanna lose 50% of everything he has stop calling them a scum bag they just don't know what to do

  • If someone cheats, it`s not a good relationship and the person obviously doesn`t love the partner. Cheating can be caused by lack of communication or needs not being met or fulfilled. Very few to no people would actually cheat in a good relationship. Real people would call it off and find someone else

  • If I had the answer to that I wouldn't be home on GAG right now.
    They #1 lack self respect
    #2 self centered think only of their needs
    #3 no self control we can think of what it would be like with someone else, it doesn't mean we act on it.
    #4 I do believe for some cheaters they don't think it through, they don't think if caught how devastating it will be for all involved, it has a ripple effect it hurts so many.

  • In a good relationship? Good question. I can think of lots of reasons, but when you say "good relationship" I don't know. When I thought I was in a good relationship, I never cheated. Thought about it? Sure! Never did it. But after a very long time with no sex, I moved on. Not cheating when you leave her first

  • People are not honest with each other. Of course there should be a reason behind such behavior. I believe that's probably some issues that you don't want to talk about with your partner. I cannot understand why people cheat. What kind of person you should be to do something like this.

  • In a good relation that won't happen, but maybe s/he's trying to figure out his/her true feelings, and having an adventure will reveal how really cares about the partner. I mean, they can feel guilty and never go ahead with the other one, but if there's a lot more going on, they should end their relation, not cheat.

  • Some people don't feel love until they are in a position of neediness for the other person so when they don't feel a need for the person and have other options - they are incapable of loving that person.

  • I was in relationship a couple weeks ago. It lasted a little over a year. But it all ended when I found out he was cheating on me with someone he used to hate so much. And called her names. Now they are dating. I should've listened to people when they said he was and all the proof I was shown. And the clearest signs when he accused me of cheating and calling me cuss words almost every day. And would argue about me cheating when I have not at all ever cheated on him. I loved him and I saw a future with him. Till I was showed he texted the girl way back in October that he loved her and not me and that she was the best thing that happened to him and that he didn't want to lose her. I shattered my heart. So I lost trust in every single guy and the next guy I date (not gonna be for a long time) is gonna have to build my trust with him. I don't want to be cheated on again. I'm only 16 I didn't deserve that. But I have regrouped and I am better than ever cause I'm not living a lie or and emotionally controlling abusive cheating relationship. I am so much happier now. I'm gonna find me a real man.

  • I have no idea but my opinion is they’re just cowards who just can’t say the truth it’s really not that hard to be like hey I don’t feel it anymore rather then a damn hoe. Or they’re just plain out idiotic. Or it’s on the abusive level and they’re trapped or scared to get out.

  • Because they are looking for something that the current partner can’t provide. Better to break up and find that person that they really want to be with.
