I know a lot of men and women end up cheating on their SO because of insecurity issue. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum.

Low Self Esteem An individual who is suffering from low self esteem may embark on an affair to “prove” that they are attractive and desirable to others.
This is particularly true as far as women are concerned, as a lack of emotional intimacy in a current relationship can encourage a wife or girlfriend to look elsewhere.After you create your account, you'll be able to customize options and access all our 15,000 new posts/day with fewer ads. Being cheated on is painful for both men and women, no one sex handles it better than the other.Some people handle it better than others, depending on their maturity, life experiences, faith and coping skills. Either way, I'd guess it might lead most to be less trusting because they know it can happen to them.This type of affair should indicate a highly unsuccessful relationship that is best ended before the affairs become chronic forms of revenge.People can cheat for a number of reasons, and it is not always easy to pinpoint exactly why they may be unfaithful.Some reasons are put forward more often than others, as many affairs can be explained by at least one of the above factors.In the majority of affairs, little or no consideration is given to the feelings of the wronged partner.Men will often seek sexual intimacy from another partner if it is not forthcoming at home.Novelty Value and Excitement For some people, the main attraction of an affair is the added excitement that it brings.I think they may be more likely to cheat on the cheating partner (knee-jerk revenge response), but in any new relationship may be much less likely to cheat because they know first-hand of the pain it causes when discovered. If he ended up cheating, that is due to insecurity.
