Cheating in a relationship is considered to be bad, but unfortunately, still, many of us do it, but there are always big reasons to make that move, and all of us had those in mind while cheating. This can be a very hard topic to talk about even with your best friends that’s why we’ve gathered the information about cheating in a relationship and we will show you the results here.
We’ve mainly focused on the simple question which is “Why did you cheat on your last relationship?” and to simply all the answers we can say that about 57% percent wasn’t sexually satisfied with a current partner and about 32% percent did it as a revenge on the partner, for what he or she has done in the past. Those are only simplified answers, but that topic is really deep and complex, so if you want to know more then keep reading.
The remaining 11% percent had other reasons but they were very different from each other, or they were very personal other so we didn’t include them in this statistics.
Revenge cheating in relationship
Have you ever had that feeling that you need to do something bad for other people, especially if they did something bad in the past to you, even if that person is the one you love? Human nature is sometimes weird, but that’s how it works in our brains. We can even do bad things intentionally to a person who we love as revenge.
That’s really sad and we shouldn’t do that, because there are other ways to solve problems, like a simple conversation, that can fix all issues and will make your desire to take revenge almost completely disappear. Unfortunately, we tend to use drastic methods on the person that we love, so if they cheated on us we are likely to do the same thing, and that will lead to a breakup eventually.
It’s often related to envy, even if it is a small thing like writing as a man with other women than you. Small things can ruin your relationship over time because revenge is followed by another revenge from the other side and that’s a never-ending cycle that will ruin your bond and eventually lead to a breakup.
It can quickly escalate to bigger problems like revenge cheating, and revenge cheating can mean things like:
- Dating with another person
- Romantic Texting with another person
- Sleeping with another person
Almost one-third of the people that asked why they cheated, responded with something similar to simple revenge. That number represents how we behave when hurt. The most often pointed reasons for revenge cheating in a relationship are:
- Our partner did it first
- Simple envy
- To get attention from your partner
- As a punishment for some mistakes
Being hurt by the person we love can very painful and should be solved by a simple conversation, about the issues that are between you, and also about ideas who you can fix them.
Not sexually satisfied in relationship
It’s a common question related mostly to the younger side of people under the age of 25 when we are not in a stable relationship. Younger people don’t like to stay in one place or do the same thing for a long period of time, so they are often bored. Most of the younger people don’t treat their relationships as something that will last longer than a year.
That’s why they want to experiment and try something new. To look for an adventure to fulfill new desires, that’s why they often feel not sexually satisfied in a relationship that they are currently in.
As they get older they want to settle down a bit and find a person with who they will be able to spend the rest of their life. So they pay more attention to their current relationship which is way more important for them compared to the people under 25. Maybe your boyfriend or girlfriend doesn’t like your body.
As a teenager, you wanted to try everything out, and you quickly get bored of anything. That’s human nature, but that’s a bad thing because we can hurt that person who we truly love. Even if we realized that we don’t love her or him, we should tell that to be fair and break up before we try to find new love.
In conclusion – Why Did You Cheat On Your Last Relationship?
The most common reasons are being not sexually satisfied or doing it as revenge cheating. Remember that cheating is bad, because that way you will hurt another person’s feelings, and it’s better to simply ask yourself if you still want to continue that relationship. If you don’t want to continue then tell that person before you start to look for another love.
If you do want to fix your relationship then prepare for a long conversation and even arguing, but that can lead you to a bright future together. We highly recommend you try to talk before you act.
Couples tend to have a longer emotional conversation, but that’s a good thing to talk with each other about your feelings. That will let you say what has been stored deep down in your heart, and the same goes for the second person. So listen to each other and stay positive!
