Cheating has become more common nowadays than ever before. Unlike in the olden days where only men were thought to be natural cheaters, women nowadays cheat as much as men do.
But why is it that we hear more stories of men cheating than women despite the fact that women equally cheat?
Well, there are a number of reasons for this. One of the reasons is that most men are not good pretenders. When they find a new woman or side chick, their behaviour changes, something which makes their partner to catch them easily. For example, a man may put a new password on his phone, he may start bragging to his partner, some times making her feel less of a woman, his performance in bed may change and he may stop eating from home, just to mention a feel.
On the other hand, women take their time to plan how the whole cheating process is going to take place, including excuses they will use when they get caught. They may start by studying their partner’s movements, what makes him happy and the like. That is why it is not uncommon for a cheating woman to suddenly become extremely humble, caring and understanding. All these are meant to fool a man into believing that they are faithful. After all, who would suspect a humble, Innocent and understanding person?
In summary, it can be said that one of the reasons why men are easily caught when they start cheating is because of their change in behaviour and the show off attitude that makes their partner suspicious. On the other hand, women do the opposite: they suddenly become humble, caring ,innocent and understanding so as to throw their man off scent. That is why a man needs to be suspicious when his woman becomes humble all of a sudden, especially when she is rude.
In my next article I will talk about the psychological consequences of cheating on the victim.
