Why Men Cheat

The reasons men cheat usually baffle us – remember Hugh Grant picking up Divine Brown when he had Elizabeth Hurley at home? It doesn’t make sense. Or what about Christie Brinkley’s cheating ex Peter Cook – she is CHRISTIE BRINKLEY– how much better can you do buddy?! We searched high and low for some real guys who are really cheating and asked them, why ever do you do it?

Many of the men we asked blamed disloyalty on their insecurity. Steve, 29, from Los Angeles told us, “Yes, I cheat on my girlfriend of four years. It’s never emotional. It’s usually just a hookup here and there. I guess sometimes I just feel like – honestly, I know this is so cliché, but she is too good for me and is probably going to leave one day. She is beautiful and smart and every time I hook up with someone I feel awful, but I keep doing it. She has no idea.”

“I have two girlfriends,” Tyler from West Hollywood tells us. “They have no idea. I see both of them every night. I usually hook up with one early and one later. One usually thinks I am working late or doing stuff with guys and then the other one thinks I have an early morning, so I go see the other one.”

Fan Blogger Question of the Week: Have You Ever Caught a Cheater or Been Caught?

We were shocked at this guy’s technique. “What about holidays?” I asked him, “Like what the heck do you do on Valentine’s Day?”

“I always work it out,” Tyler said, who has had this act going for a year and a half! “I honestly just feel like I’m looking out for me and having my bases covered. I hate being alone.”

Some of the men we talked to said they do it just because they can!

Mark, 32, from Brooklyn, was juggling four girlfriends. He was a lounge manager and in charge of the schedule. He was dating four of his employees, and put them all on different shifts.

Then “I got busted,” he tells us, because “I was moving to California and one of the girls was crying because I was moving, and another one was coming in early for her shift and asked girlfriend #1 why she was crying, and she said, ‘Mark is leaving,’ and the other one said, ‘Wait, my Mark?’ I was so busted – thank goodness I was leaving the next day to move across the country,” he shares.

  1. I think it comes down to this: men think only about what they want in the moment without thinking about the consequences. This is a depressing article- and makes me glad I’m single.

  2. Players are one thing, cheating is another. I’m not saying it doesn’t hurt to be played, but can you really play someone for 2 or 3 years? I bet not. Cheating on someone after 2 or 3 years of monogamy…ouch ouch ouch

  3. Wow I agree with all of the first three comments. This article was even MORE depressing than i thought it would be. I partly blame American culture – most men believe that monogamy is not cool, and that the more girls you play, the cooler you are. Something has to change. People need to start raising their sons to be CONSIDERATE and to respect the time and feelings of others.

  4. This article is one sided. Women cheat as well. Both sexes cheat because they are not getting their needs met. For men, they are not gettting their sexual needs met. Women don’t get their emotional or sexual needs met and cheat.

  5. These men sound pathetic. And hiding behind two-bit psychoanalysis doesn’t make them any more endearing. “I cheat because I’m insecure.” Uh…yeah. And an ass!
    Those of us who’ve been through betrayal can’t be quite so cavalier about cheating. It’s devastating and those who can’t acknowledge that devastation are shallow cads…

  6. I agree this is a depressing article. I’ve been on both sides of the fence and I agree it’s a self-esteem issue, a health issue for sure, and the advertising of sex. Now, I am older and really want to settle down and enjoy my life with someone I love, respect and have alot of affection for. I hope it’s not too late.
