You ask, "why do people cheat?"

Maybe the answer is as simple as: People aren't meant to be in one on one relationships.

The idea of a one on one relationship comes from culture, not from instinct or basic survival needs, right? So, perhaps the better question is why do people still try to force themselves and the person they like to adhere to a one on one relationship when they would clearly be happier (since they are cheating to get it now) if they were allowed the opportunity to see more than one person?

Damn, 6 times? Different people or same person?

Yep, it all it takes is just one time to be cheated on and it destroys a person and makes them lose trust in others. Idk if it does any damage to the cheater, I don't think so, probably they just get really stressed out hiding it. Why people like to cause so much pain, I won't understand. I get it could be so that we can reproduce more or something in terms of the survival instinct inside of us, but humans are also very jealous animals and want to keep a person to themselves.


different people :/

Some people aren't able to be in relationships that aren't 1 on 1 tho

It's simple and this has been stated in various books. There are multiple reasons but the two most common are:

1) An individual has been damaged in the childhood and can't hold onto affection. In order to correct this they would need to get psychological help.

2) A relationship gets too boring. A couple gets use to being a couple and have a "married" feeling. So then when someone gets that spark they enjoyed at the beginning of a relationship, it attracts them to cheat since being together with your current significant other is plain and boring now.

Ultimately the guy (imo) in a relationship should keep the sparks going and once they start to notice things getting boring, to try and do something fun. But don't wait too long because then it might seem out of the ordinary and it will fail.

If a user was damaged growing up, you should be able to notice it fairly quickly and might not want to believe it. Jealously is a huge key, drugs, etc.

I almost did in HS. My GF went to a different school so there we'rent any eyes on me. I would get attention from some girls and knew a few of them really liked me. But I never acted on it, even though I totally could have. I just wasn't that guy.

Its a struggle i suppose just need to find the right person. The biggest mistake people do is settle on that someone is the right one as soon as they meet. Love takes time spend time together and explore each others interests i guess would be my tip

People cheat because they want to. Comparable to horny guinea pigs stuck in a cage.

I thought it was cheating in video games...

Idk to me sex just looks inconvenient.

Probably a great stress reliever though.

I've cheated on my right hand to get my left some dexterity.

either because they're cowards or because they're assholes

People cheat because that is just who they are, and I guess one person isn't enough for them.

I think that it's possible to find someone who doesn't cheat, but that it's very fucking hard to find that kind of person.

I haven't found that person yet, I've always been cheated on.

I always used to blame myself for getting cheated on, but this is not my fucking fault. There is nothing wrong with me.
