Do Women Cheat More Than Men

Do Women Cheat More Than Men?

Do women cheat more than men? You’ve known the answer in your body for some time. The term “second brain” refers to gut feelings. As you watch the world around you change, you’ve noticed women are acting more and more like men. They think about sex as often as you. They may even aggressively pursue sex. On the reverse side, men are acting more and more like women. They seek approval from women and the less confident get less interaction and access to the other sex. The experts will tell you one thing, but they are lying to you. Now you need me to tell you the truth. The answer is simply, yes. Women do cheat more often than men. Here is why:

Do Women cheat more than men

For a long time research proposed that men cheated more than women. Part of this was cultural confirmation bias which portrayed men as “dogs.” As the media and education institutions ramped up their cultural Marxist war on men, women were portrayed as victims to the patriarchal system. TV shows were created that depicted men as sleazy and idiotic. However, the war on men was and is much more. Politically correct sub-cultures were developed with the intent to feminize men. Skinny jeans and too much time in the bathroom was sold to men so they could be “less masculine.” Aggressive behavior was taught to be morally wrong.

The fact of the matter is that women are much better at hiding their affairs than men. The reason for this is embedded in the reasons why each gender cheats. Men cheat to conquer and gives them a sense of accomplishment. Typically emotional connection is not present during an affair. An anthropologist known as Helen Fisher studied infidelity and discovered that 56% of men who cheat consider themselves very happy in their relationship. Men cheat and typically brag about their exploits. Women on the other hand cheat due to an emotional need or dissatisfaction. Since the reasons are different, women can keep an affair secret easier than men. Women are not programmed to discuss an affair or brag about it.

The Official Statistics of Cheating

  • 22% of men say that they’ve cheated on their wife.
  • 14% of wives admit to having an affair on their husband.
  • Over a 1/3rd of all marriages have a partner cheat
  • People who have cheated are 300 percent more likely to cheat.

What the statistics of cheating does not consider:

These stats are “official” according to a 2016 study on the topic. However, there are lots of variables not considered that skew the results. These are both scientific blunders and cultural bias. Let me explain:

First, the study only includes people who admitted to infidelity. It does not include any person who may have committed the act but has kept it secret. As I mentioned before, men are also more likely to boast about their conquest and thus, this behavior favors them in the results.

Women are emotional beings

women cheat more often than menThe emotional experience of a woman resembles a wave with crests and valleys. At one moment they can be extremely satisfied, and within minutes this can change to an emotional valley. With this said, women are a lot less stable in the emotional realm than men. The primary reason why women cheat is due to dissatisfaction.

Women are also more calculative in their moves. From an early age women plan out life scenarios such as who they will marry, how many kids they will have, etc. Men on the other hand are more likely to live in the present moment. Thus it is also easier for women to be dissatisfied in a relationship.

The Secretive Nature of Women

One study found that women are more likely to keep money spending hidden from their spouse. It showed that women have more secret bank accounts than men. This goes back to the point made earlier in the article, women are just much better at keeping secrets.

My last point is in reference to the lifestyle commitments of the study. The study from 2016 only considers married couples. Any man’s experience in life will also tell you, young girls are more promiscuous, and women not married are more promiscuous. Let your experiences and gut feelings guide you and discard any garbage from the so called “experts.”

The Society Factor

It’s plain to see within all the discussion about genders and the patriarchy, society still has expected roles for men and women. Men want to believe that women do not cheat. Women also want this perception. With this cultural bias in place, it’s easy to see how the results of any infidelity study are skewed. Ultimately it boils down to confirmation bias. Men are considered to cheat more in the minds and hearts of society, and thus the studies “prove” this. The media and institutions help propagate this idea. But, it’s just an idea, and not based on fact or science. Women cheat more than men and you know it.

The purpose of this article is not to hate on women, or put them all under a blanket generalization. Its to help men wake up to their reality in the 21st century. Women are the source of beauty in society, and are a critical component to any healthy one. That said, if any of my comments offended you I make no apologies.
