  • Disagree. Some of them are, the same way some women are cheaters by nature.
  • strongly disagree
  • Disagree - Everybody has a choice.
  • Everybody cheats by nature given the right conditions.
  • According to some scientists cheating is not socially acceptable, but it is a more effective way to spread the species, and that's stuck somewhere inside our primitive brain. Others disagree because some species are completely monogamous. I am a little undecided....
  • Disagree: Why only men?
  • I think you made a Mistake. It must be women not men.
  • I disagree...men (and women) are cheaters by choice.
  • Disagree. ALL women are manipulative by nature. ALL black people are lazy by nature. ALL Mexicans love beans by nature. ALL politicans are liars by nature. And in the great debate of nature v. nurture, the conclusion is NURTURE.
  • I disagree with that....It probably is 50/50.
  • Not by nature, no. That's not a "natural" thing to be.
  • Totally disagree.
  • Disagree. The cheaters stand out more so they make it look like "everyone" is doing it.
  • Disagree completely. That is a very cynical viewpoint.
  • I'll agree with the general public and say disagree.
  • Agree - but so are women. But men tend to boast about it, if only in private, but women shut up. Remember, it takes two to cheat. If the men are cheating, who are they doing it with.
    • officegirl
      Well not that I have boasted about it but I have talked about it on AB. I think we have "shut up" about it for too long. Which is partly why people believe statements like that. We just tend to be more careful about doing anything that will threaten our primary relationships because we are more likely to define ourselves through them.
  • I believe cheating is something that is largely learned. We live in a society that encourages young males to make sexual conquests and prod them into looking at women as sexual creatures. If they don't, they're regarded as less than normal. These learned behaviours then transgress to future situations when the young men marry or get involved in more serious relationships. This,coupled with men's higher sex drives (men produce more testosterone than women, and testosterone is the hormone responsible for an individual's sex drive) make men more susceptible to cheating. However, if a man was raised properly and taught to respect women and the importance of family, and if he had a strong moral character (again, a learned characteristic), he usually can override his biological needs and desires and refrain from cheating. That's where you find the good men. But there is always two sides to a story, and women can just be as bad and unfaithful to their mates also.
  • Only a Sith deals in absolutes.
  • No I do not think so, Both sexes are liable to cheat. I think the last survey said that more women were unfaithful in marriage than men. It is something anyone of anysex is capable of and all people are not the same.
  • I disagree.
  • No. Both sexes cheat. I know and have seen it happen around me. Personally in my life, I have noticed more men cheating than woman but that definately does not mean that all men are cheaters and that definately does not mean that all women are little angels either.
  • Aye.. indeed we are, given oppurtunity with acceptable risk of exposure ;)
  • Men are promiscuous by nature. Cheating is a personal lack of morals. I disagree.
  • Not all men cheat.
  • Maybe so, but my experience is quite the opposite...
  • On Taxes YES,with their women No.Because if you can't be true to your lady you are not a MAN at all.You are a selfish little boy.
  • Women are more likely to cheat than men, finds report: Women are more likely to cheat on their men to gain sexual satisfaction because of their growing assertiveness and their equality in the workplace, say marriage counselors. Cheating husbands, in contrast, are increasingly looking for emotional fulfillment and may actually mean it when they tell their secretaries that their wives don't understand them. This reversal of traditional roles is detailed by the American author Shirley Glass in a new book, Not Just Friends. She blames the growing trend of illicit sexual adventures among married women for America's 50% divorce rate. "When a woman has an affair, she is more likely to leave her husband because she is already detached from him," she says. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/868020/posts Women cheat more than men: WOMEN are far more unfaithful than men, a survey reveals. Forty per cent of females cheat on lovers, compared with 34 per cent of males. http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2006600199,00.html The Psychological Reasons - Women Cheat More than Men: http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Psychological-Reasons-Women-Cheat-More-than-Men&id=738666 Women cheat more than men: Study Lately a survey in UK has postulated that women are more deceitful than males. According to the statistical data: 1. 40% of women cheat in comparison with 34% of men 2. 34% fantasize about lesbian sex while 14% men have gay fantasies 3. nearly half of the women indulge in day dreaming about love making whereas for men the figure is ten times 4. 62% of women and 82% of men claim they are sex-starved and desperate for more loving http://www.womenlifestyle.com/entry/women-cheat-more-than-men-study/
  • Disagree. Women are cheaters by nature, simpply because they have a lot more choices than men. http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Psychological-Reasons-Women-Cheat-More-than-Men&id=738666
  • The stereotypical male I guess yes. but then we all are different and male or female we make choices each day. It just depends if you made the choice. That you (either gender) want to cheat on the one you say you "love".
  • Disagree.
  • I disagreee. I think this is a horrible sterotype that cheaters use to excuse their bad behaviour. In fact I think we as a socity encourage boys to act this way and then nail them for it. If we want to see the rates of cheating go down we need to stop treating sex and marriage as a game and as the commitments they truely are. We also need to start teaching our sons to stop seeing women as sex objects to be concoqured at every chance to prove their manhood. They need to be taught that being a good father and husband are how you prove your a man.
  • it takes two....by nature..
  • In my experience I would tend to agree. I also disagree with reports saying women are more likely to cheat... I have never cheated and I don't know a woman who has, except in retribution for the man cheating(1 woman I know did this). Also, I don't know a man who hasn't cheated. Except maybe my boyfriend.... even then, I doubt he never did cheat on anyone, however I lack proof that he has.
  • Disagree It is just too easy to say it is in men's nature. Where is the accountability in saying "I was made this way"?
  • Liars too.
  • Disagree, unless ur talkin bout my almost ex,thats a cheater!
  • Sorry Highlander,That wasnt cool,or helpful.I think everyone is capable of cheating,male or female.I know this prob. dosent help much,I think theres more good people in the world than bad.
  • Men are flagged as cheaters but really lets do our homework. Women are equally as guilty as our men are fighting for our country and the women at home supposedly standing beside them are divorcing them as soon as they are shipped out! Lets see, it happend in Vietnam, desert storm, and now this war! Where is the war really being fought? On our own soil as far as I see it! America needs a wake up call and all those not in favor need to read the constitution once more because we are losing everything we have fought for since the beginning of this great country! Thats my thought!
  • Yup, and they're good at it too ^^ lemme tell ya :D they'll get ya :D i remember an incident last guy fawkes in a bar, with this nice irish lad from up the road, turns out he spiked my drink , bloody good shag tho mate.
  • i have never cheated on any girl so that is not true.
  • Disagree. Heavily.
  • are all whites racists? are all black women golddiggers? I disagree,women cheat as much as men.men that cheat have been driven by their wives/girlfriends to it.
  • Not my man. He is the only one I am concerned about.
  • Probably true! However...http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/591383.stm
  • I don't believe it's in a man's "nature" to cheat any more than it is a woman's. I believe women are just as capable and likely to cheat in a relationship as men. To a certain extent I don't think humans are naturally monogamous creatures - we're pre-programmed to give ourselves the best chance of re-producing and in male and female cases that chance is increased by a wider selection of partners (I personally don't buy the men want to spread the seed, women want them to stick around - conflicting instincts like that doesn't seem to make evolutionary sense. Besides evidence from observation seems to suggest that given the opportunity both sexes will sleep around.) That doesn't mean I don't think monogamy is often a desirable thing in modern society. and I don't see any reason why men should specifically find it more difficult to comply with it or women find it less so.
  • I'm not a cheater and I'm... (looks down just to check) a a man, so I'm inclined to disagree with you.
  • I have been cheated on by more women, than men
  • I strongly disagree
  • Men chemically programed to fly the nest after 5 years as that is when the child should be able to be independent to some extent. Men are also programed to try to get as many women pregnant as possible before he finds out about a child and then does the 5 year plan. But social conditioning leads many men to override that, and so many men do that i think although geneticly men are programed to have a 5 year relationship- cheating is another matter. And men have the will power remain monogamos (spelling?)
  • i dissagree. i've never cheated on any woman i've ever dated.
  • I've never cheated and I'm strongly against it, however I had to witness the effects adultery had on women close to me so that might account for why I despise it so much. Just the fact that some men cheat is evidence that it is in some of their natures (or it simply wouldn't exist). However I don't believe it is genetically embedded to an extent that it is a constant urge somewhere in the back of our minds.
  • Agree.. but there is also instances that a woman also cheats and that is what they called 'Truce', both genders can cheat, but it depends on their nature..
  • It's worse. We are all savages by nature (man and women). But we choose to behave differently.
  • Absolutely disagree. Cheating is a choice.
  • disagree
  • Disagree; cheating is a consciously decided and performed action, thus not something one does by nature. People may be more 'inclined' to cheat, but they must still decide to then go through the process of actually doing it. Also, men aren't more 'inclined' to cheat either.
  • Disagree. It is not necessary that Men are the one who are cheaters by nature. Some of the cheat but others are not and can be trusted.
  • men are either A. driven to cheat by their annoying girlfriends B. horny
  • Disagree. You choose to cheat. It isn't nature.
  • Disagree. i have never ever cheated on my wife.SO bang goes that theory
  • '
  • Disagree. We ARE preprogrammed to have many partners, and not to be monogamous... ...but cheating is a decision.
  • ....................No
  • Disagree
  • Women don't cheat? When they do it, is it because of something else? People in general are selfish by nature. That is why people cheat.
  • Eve ate the apple
  • I am a 35 year old male, have three children and have been married for almost seven years. I don't buy into that crap about being programmed to do anything. I think people (men) who defend this nonsence are cheaters who are trying to rid themselves of the guilt that they should be feeling because they did something wrong. Three years ago I cheated on my wife. I told her about it and she forgave me (even though part of me says she shouldn't have I am thankful she did). I had a choice to make and I made the wrong one because I was selfish not programmed.
  • By nature? No. By choice? Yes. A man who cheats is a man who's word means nothing. Such a man has no honor.
  • Disagree... we just choose to be. Girls are no different.
  • yessssssssss...... all of themmmm...
  • men usually cheat with women
  • That depends if she keeps him to exhausted to look for extra curricular activities!
  • Disagree. Trust me, women can cheat just as much.
  • Some men have higher expectations than others; in other words; I, for instance, would not cheat on my wife with any woman, however, if a super hot mama (the type that I find totally irresistible) offered me sex, I know for certain that I would have a hell of a time saying "Thanks but no, thanks!" Thus, I think that given the opportunity we all would be cheaters.
  • Agreed. Just like women.
  • Well, if you don't feed the fox yourself then he'll still the neighbors chickens! If you don't pay the required extensions then yes they cheat.
  • Yes, strict monogamy makes little sense in biological terms.
  • Absolutely disagree.
  • When someone cheats they do it by choice, gender means nothing and to say men are all cheaters is damn right sexist. I would never cheat on a girl, when im with someone I am bound to them and unless I break up with them I would never touch another girl.
  • I wouldn't say all men cheat, but as a sexual strategy cheating has obvious benefits and is probably very natural. The main one is being able to trick another male into raising your child by having an affair with his wife.
  • Strongly Disagree. I'm a guy, I've never cheated, I never will and am VERY against it. I have no respect or sympathy for anyone who cheats or gets caught cheating. I don't get how people can do it, I really don't. You have to not give a shit, not really love your significant other, or are just a weak minded pathetic individual. I also think the worst excuse for cheating is "I didn't plan on it, it just...happened" I don't believe that at all... If you're kissing someone else and you know it's wrong how do you not stop out of sheer compassion to the one you normally kiss?
  • It is Human nature to procreate. It is Human ideas that make it that he can only do that with one person at a time. After all we are nothing more than an animal or mammal and our primitive nature is to survive.
  • I disagree. As much as I would love to think otherwise. Men cheat because for many reasons but I don't believe it's in their nature to cheat, because of the social stigma it has possessed from pretty much the beginning of civilization.
  • A guy with some bucks in his 20's? C'Mon! ;-)
  • Disagree. I don't think all men are like that, & don't think it is a matter of gender.
  • Both, 50/50 =)
  • Come on, we are an evolutionary species...Right from the beginning are beast instincts cried procreate with who ever and whenever possible, it's in our blood...Fast forward present day, we now have the ability to think rationally at least some of us do lol and have conformed to societies standards which says we take one woman make her our wife, have children and grow old together, at least that's how it use to be, now it's take one woman, get married, get divorced a year or two later and hope your man does not go roaming in those few years of bliss and vice versa lol
  • Yes. It's a natural instinct.
  • Cheating is a choice that not only men are guilty of.
  • Disagree.
  • i have never cheated and never plan to
  • Of course! It is absolutely instinctual. A behavior can become imbedded genetically. Impregnating many females is a superior strategy to impregnating just one in biological terms for a man. This contrasted with female instinctual strategy of finding and keeping a bread winner in order to more effectively raise the offspring results in the human drama. It’s not good or bad, it just is.
  • Al Men and Wimmen are cheaters by nature! Monogamy is a choice! There are 4 kinds of Monogamy, so why cheating and hurt somebody by lieing to them. Talk with your partner if you feel the urge to cheat! Without trust and honesty, your relation is doomed!!
  • Disagree. Sexual desire is innate. Cheating is not. It may be influenced by sexual desire, but it is more an individual character flaw than something innate. There are a lot of us men who have strong sex drives, but being unfaithful is not in our nature. We clearly know that's wrong and would never do it.
  • I disagree. My husband and brothers are honorable men and aren't cheaters. That's theirs choice not their nature.
  • Men are simply weaker than women.
  • Disagree. Both men and women can be cheaters.
  • disagree
