My five part series went on a brief vacation, but I’m back and here’s the number two reason that men cheat: they think they can get away with it. I know this may sound childish and you would think that it’d be more complicated or complex than this; however, men tend to keep it rather simple. For them being unfaithful is simple as well.
Now one would think that men had seen enough movies, reality TV shows, and sitcoms to know that what’s done in the dark, will eventually come to the light. No matter how many men come out in the news being caught in extramarital affairs it is still one of the oldest tricks in the book. Men still and will always think that they can get away with cheating.
Even after the Kobe Bryant fiasco, here follows Elliot Spitzer and Tiger Woods and everyone in between. Men always think they are fooling someone but at the end of the day, they end up fooling themselves and that one night of mediocre or even great sex could end up costing men years of commitment. This is not to say that men will stop cheating or will stop thinking they can get away with it. And it also seems that the more power and money a man has, the more he feels exempt from the “rules” of dating and marriage. As if monogamy doesn’t really apply to him.
I mean we have all done some things when we were younger that we believed we could get away with. Whether it was at school or something we pulled over on our parents, so it’s not just in the dating world that this kind of mentality exists. People have been pulling the wool over each others eyes for ages; however, when it comes to dating, it affects not just one person, especially if there are kids involved.
Steve Harvey talks about this from a different perspective than me, him being a man and all, and you can pick up his book from Barnes & Nobles on 2900 Peachtree Road. The book is a great read and not only will you learn things about men; it helps you learn about yourself as well.
