Understanding The Male Psychology

Jul 16, 2008
Everyday we hear something about some or the other woman being cheated by a man. Though these things are meant to be quite discreet, we hear about them all the same. That simply means that there is such a lot of cheating going on that some of it comes out into the open each day. And its not just about single men cheating on their girlfriends; quite a lot of it is going on in marriages too. It is important then to understand how to avoid a cheating man. Is there a psychological pattern to it? Quite often, the dwindling of the charm in a relationship is said to be the cause. But this may only be the tip of the iceberg. The reasons can be quite diverse, and yes, there is a psychological pattern to it too.

Men are more into a sexual relationship than an emotional relationship. When they get into a relationship, most men have the sex part uppermost in their minds. Even if their relationship is going great on an emotional level, somewhere the boredom creeps in where sex is concerned. This is where men begin looking for more opportunities to make out. Here, men fall into three categories:-s
? Those who actually look for opportunities for some sex on the sly and grab it with both hands,
? Those who wait for opportunities to come their way and then take them and
? Those who do not react even if opportunities for sex come their way

Quite understandably, it is men of the first two categories who would fall in the sexual trap. But you can never know which man falls into which category until the chance for getting tempted really comes his way.

There is another psychological factor here. Men want to prove, if at all only to themselves, that they can still make a hit with the girls. Here, the classical male ego comes to play. They want to reassure themselves that they are still attractive to the girls. Hence, for some people, the rare clandestine flings could be only a method to prove a point to themselves.

In most marriages, there is a sense of one-upmanship. There are men who would cheat on their wives just to prove to them that there are other fishes to fry if they wanted. Embitterment in marriages can cause this. Here, we see a very important psychological pattern in men, men who cheat on their wives are not all looking for sex. Some of them, in fact, most of them, are doing them to get back at their wives or at frustration in life in general. This becomes a way for them to prove their self-worth.

There are various reasons actually. The male mind is filled with numerous nooks and crannies that can house a reason for men that cheat. It will take you a lot more reading and analyzing to get at the actual reason, and moreover, you will never be able to find a uniform pattern for it.
