Cheating. This is not an “every-guy thing,” you know. Lots of boyfriends are honest, they keep to their promises, and they do not cheat. When it is time for a dating relationship to end, they end it and move on. In other words, they don’t start something with another girl while they are still in a dating relationship.
Some of you girls are already thinking  On what planet do those guys live? I’ve never known a guy like that. If that is the case, maybe you need to start hanging around with a different group of guys.
If you have a history of dating cheaters or know way too many girls who have, then you might need to rethink how you pick your boyfriends. We’ll get to that later.
And, yes, I know girlfriends can cheat too, but for the next few blogs, we’re going to talk about boyfriends.
Guys really Aren’t all that Complex- Nor are their Relationships
shutterstock_200071559_why guys cheat on their girlfriends.insidebblogThere is lots of advice floating around in books, blogs, and every-day conversations about why guys cheat. But if you haven’t figured this out yet, you will eventually discover that guys are really not that complex.
The male approach to dating lies somewhere between that of a caveman and a mechanical engineer, often more like the caveman. So, I have simplified the WHY of cheating by whittling it down to five things. This is not intended to be a complete list, mind you. But understanding these few simple things about guys could help you a lot.
Boyfriends Cheat because they want out of the relationship

1) Guys get stuck with a clingy girl. He figures maybe she’ll change over the course of a few months. He really likes the girl for a lot of her character traits but notices that she’s not going to let him go.
Miss Insecurity is dating Mr. Self-Confident, and with that relationship, she is trying desperately to plug some pretty big holes in her own self-esteem. She becomes obsessed with her boyfriend. You know how that usually turns out…clinginess, jealousy, anger, tears.
But Miss Insecurity doesn’t want to press Mr. Self-Confident too hard about his commitment. She would prefer to assume (or in some cases, dream) he is as committed to her as she is to him. But Mr. Self-Confident isn’t committed at all and is in fact, trying to figure a way out.

2) Guys just want sex from a girl. Girl isn’t willing to give them sex just yet, so they stick around. They wait for a while, giving promises of everlasting love til they finally get what they want. Then they stick around a little longer and say Hey!…so I’ve met this other girl (who I’ve had sex with without you knowing) and I just don’t see things working out between us…so Yeah.
