Women have affairs for different reasons than men, but the end effect is still the same. Common reasons women stray vary, but there are a few common situations.
When people think of cheaters, they often envision men. But the reality is that men need someone to cheat with. They don’t do it alone. Women have just as many reasons why they might stray. Here are just a few of them.
Women who have been cheated on may seek out her partner’s best friend or workmate in order to get emotional revenge. She may try and make her mate feel the pain that she feels. While cheating does not heal the hurt of being cheated on, it becomes a way to act out anger over a betrayal.
Building Up Her Ego
Some women feel a constant need for attention and praise. These women need to be doted on to feel complete, and will go after a man to build up her ego. They may view an affair as a “prize.” Their cheating partner could include younger men, business partners of her husband’s, or even a friend’s boyfriend.
Cheating With an Ex
Some women develop unhealthy fantasies about their ex-boyfriends. After a breakup, they may hold on to the belief that her boyfriend was “better” than the man she is currently with. These women will keep this fantasy alive even if the ex has rejected them. But if an ex is ready and willing to cheat, this type of woman will jump at the chance to feel connected to this past relationship.
A woman who is on top of the world at work may feel that she is not getting the proper accolades at home. These types of women will seek out an affair because she feels she deserves it. An affair acts as a type of “treat” for this woman.
Women About to Get Married
Men aren’t the only ones who get cold feet when it comes to getting married. Women sometimes think having one last fling before they settle down is acceptable because they don’t yet have a wedding ring on their finger. They often realize too late that men get just as hurt by an affair as women do.
Women Cheat With the Object of Her Emotional Affair
Just as men sometimes take an emotional affair to the physical side, women often confuse the closeness with her friend as something that needs to be explored. Women in these situations typically have hid or lied about this friendship to her partner as a way to keep it special.
Women Who Feel Neglected May Seek Out Affair
When a woman feels that her man is not paying enough attention to her, she may have an affair. Her reasons for doing this will usually be two-fold. First, to get her partner’s attention. Second, to get the physical closeness she craves. These types of women feel that they have already talked with her partner and the only resort they now have is an affair.
While any of these situations may help explain why a woman chose to cheat, none of them offer permanent solutions to the underlying issue. The best course for any woman unhappy in her relationship is to talk about it with her partner. If he doesn’t understand or refuses to listen, a third party may be needed.
