Mistakes Men Often Make Which Drive Their Women To Cheat On Them

Posted by Sughra Hafeez in Life Style

Guys tend to be guilty of committing a lot of mistakes in their relationships on consistent bases. A woman is likely to cheat on a man when she feels like the relationship lacks a sense of emotional intimacy. Here are the reasons which drive the women to cheat.


He always put himself first in the relationship.

A selfish person won't care about your feelings and will keep hurting you. Being selfish in a romantic relationship can really affect the dynamic between you and your partner. It can cause resentment and animosity. When you’re with a quality partner, your happiness matters just as much as hers.


He put no effort

Money can’t buy happiness, and it certainly can’t buy love either. Love isn’t a Nicholas Sparks novel because in real life, relationships last because you work for it. The effort was never about the material things. The effort is how loved and valued you make them feel, whether you’re together or apart. Unfortunately, there can be such situations when men do not understand that they need to put some effort and just take everything for granted.


He doesn't listen to her because of narcissism

The essence of a narcissistic way of being in the word is a stance of "I know best" so "Your perspective is not worth listening to." When they do listen, they listen to dismiss or show what's wrong with what others say instead of to take in new information.


Lying or evasiveness

Living a life of duplicity that involves lying and betraying someone will make most people feel very uncomfortable. If your partner lies directly to your face and seems plausible, most people will find it difficult to believe that anyone could have that much front so are more likely to accept the lie, but there will be a gut instinct that tells you not to trust them.

Emotional abandonment

Loss of physical closeness due to death, divorce, and illness is also an emotional abandonment. It also happens when our emotional needs aren’t being met in the relationship — including in our relationship with ourselves.

Psychotherapist and relationship expert Rhonda Richards-Smith, LCSW, said:

"The urge to cheat can often emerge when women feel emotionally abandoned. The physical presence of a partner is never enough to sustain a healthy, satisfying relationship. It is imperative that couples communicate their needs and expectations regularly as these can change over time. Instead of making assumptions or hoping your partner can read your mind, initiate a direct conversation about the emotional needs that are not being met."


He doesn’t support her in the pursuit of her dreams.

Anyone in a long-term relationship knows that when you desire to make significant changes in your life and your partner isn’t on board, the process will be challenging at best, devastating at worst.



Criticism is destructive to relationships when it is: About personality or character, rather than behavior. The criticized person feels controlled, which frustrates the critical partner, who then steps up the criticism, increasing the other’s sense being controlled, and so on.


Lack of intimacy

A relationship needs intimacy. Regardless of whether it's a physical intimacy or an emotional intimacy, your relationship will slowly wither and die without it. If you can't be intimate with your partner, whether physically or emotionally- or both, you cannot expect to have a lasting relationship with your partner
