Why Do Men Cheat?

I haven't posted a blog in a while. I ran across this interesting list of reasons as to why men cheat on MrsGrapevine.com and I just wanted to share it with you. Allow me to first state one fact: it's not my intention to seem like a man-basher. If you refer to previous posts, you may begin to think that I am... LoL... Back to the issue at hand, the above mentioned list includes some hilarious and seemingly honest reasons for cheating written by actual men. That's right, MEN. So this list isn't full of speculation, they're real reasons. I'll list my two favorite reasons from the list and viewing the rest is up to you.

“It’s nature and nurture. In these days it has a lot to do with nature. Everywhere you look, whether it is music, television, or politics- there is always sex. Damn near every song that’s out, whether it’s singing or rapping, it’s talking about sex with multiple women.”

The above quoted reason couldn't be more true, in my opinion. It was just earlier today when I was bobbing my head to The Dream's new song that mentions his attraction to multiple women. I can't lie, the song goes hard and is likely to be popular in clubs in upcoming months. But why? Why is it suitable for songs to be about sleeping with another man's woman? Why are we tooting it and booting it every chance we get? It's just sad, but we can't blame it all on the media. People are capable of making their own decisions and life should not be based on your favorite song. My favorite reason from the list is shown below:

"...men cheat cause they WANT TO. Period.”

It's all about choices. If you choose to be in a relationship, you should choose to be faithful. If you can't be faithful, why waste another person's time? I know that this post is specifically about why men cheat, but women cheat too. I think we tend to focus on the wrongdoings of males because women are more emotional thus the impact of cheating is more severe in most cases. My blogs are usually me asking questions, I'm in no way fit to give relationship advice. I have no idea why men, or people in general, cheat. Do you? If so, let me know in the comment section... Thanks for reading!


  1. Man, I wish I knew the answer... I think it's impossible to keep a man satisfied!

  2. Lack of compromise on the part of men and women. It may be impossible to keep men and women alike satisfied in relationships.
    There is always something missing in any relationship, and that which is missing is sought outside. So you may have all but good sex, or good conversation. At some point you gonna get it elswhere.

  3. Men cheat because they want something new, trying to see if the grass is greener elsewhere. or maybe their own relationship is lacking something. Love the post

  4. LOVE THIS BLOG! Wish I found it sooner...lol! You certainly have a new follower in me :) Men cheat because...well......they can, i agree


  5. All I can say is that the flesh is weak and as *sinners, you are going to SIN. Man or Woman. My advice...pray and be in constant communication with your partner. *Try and stay out of tempting situations and if you get caught in a situation that can compromise your relationship, RUN! LOL! The question I pose, what do you do if it happens to you? Married or just simply courting...

  6. Awww you guys... These comments make me so happy! I agree with each of you in some way or another...

    @ What A Doll - If i get cheated on while courting then it's definitely over. No talking, no excuses... he and I are done!

    if th happens while I'm married, I'd be extremely devastated... can't say what I'd do though... U? That was a great question. I never really thought about that!
