Things that Drive Women to Cheat

A recent study found that 73% jumped in bed with another man because of irritating behaviors.


According to theHuffington Post, here’s a rundown of the 10 most irritating behaviors that the women used as excuses for cheating.

I am glad it says “used as excuses”. It is always good to blame the other party. “You made me do this. How can you be so sloppy? No wonder I cheated!” Most women could be in bed with a different someone every night of the week,  if we go according to this list.  No one can disagree that these traits are annoying.  Cheating is one answer, or you could discuss with the offending party  (yes I know. Who am I kidding?) or end the relationship.  Multiple offenses? Move on.

1. He lacks a sense of humor – 19%

2. He’s not understanding enough – 16%

3. He’s not good in bed – 14%

4. He lacks good manners – 11%

5. He’s lazy and doesn’t have any life plans – 10%

6. He doesn’t care about his appearance and has poor hygiene – 9%

7. He’s not successful – 7%

8. He doesn’t pay enough attention to details and social obligations – 5%

9. He’s unable to clean up after himself and he’s a mama’s boy – 5%

10. He’s stingy – 4%

  1. Reblogged this on I Take It Like A Bitch and commented:
    We hear a lot about why men cheat, but women are also (according to certain blogs) not to be trusted, evil liars who use and abuse.

    An interesting survey…

      1. I cheated too once – but it was because I thought I was in love with two men at once. Very awkward! But it was really down to me not being able to communicate well. But boy how I lied! I got very good at it…!

    1. I would never lie to you! That was 10 years ago
      (Says the man who’s the dirty liar now!) – don’t you think I won’t know either 😉

      1. the only time I’d be lying is if I said you weren’t the most incredible woman I have ever met!

  2. One important one is when your boyfriend wont confront his drinking problem or other addiction, is “functional” enough to “manage”, and lets that drive both you and he into denial about the scope of his problem. This issue often leads to #s 3,5,6,7,8, and the “coping” you both do (ie the codependency) leads to 9. If you both lack the ability to confront the core issue, it often feels easier in the moment to escape into an affair.

      1. Of course, the cheater could have a similar substance addiction and could be using the affair as a way to avoid the mirror their partner is trying to hold to their face, especially if their Other Person is more of an enabler than their main partner.

  3. I was really surprised about a lack of humor being at the top of the list. I’ve heard that a man being able to make a woman laugh is important to them, but I didn’t realize it was so important that women would use it as an excuse to cheat. Very, very sad. Makes me wish, as you talked about in your post, that they’d discuss it openly and honestly before cheating.

  4. I found the list a bit easy – giving women (could be men as well) a ready made excuse to cheat, when the bottom line is that you just don’t have enough integrity to leave the relationship or you want your cake and eat it too.

  5. Can’t help but think that most, if not all, of these things could and should have been observed prior to marriage. Are people idiots when it comes to chosing life partners, or what?
