Cheaters: My Version

Adultery, infidelity, unfaithful or commonly known as cheating are all words used to describe the act of betraying a commitment that you have made to another. Why do people do this? Well there are several explanations but I believe honestly that no one is capable of being completely faithful to another. Because that’s not how us as humans were made. We were created to be capable of loving more than one person. I mean just think about all the people in your life that you care for and can say that you love. I mean some may argue that there are different types of love. But I disagree; I think all love is the same. It all takes the same amount of effort, time, and energy to love someone. So of course it is only natural for someone to stray when forced to focus all their love on one person in particular.
This brings me to the key factor in most cases of infidelity and that of course is SEX. Just like I do not believe that one person is capable of being faithful. I also believe that no one can possibly have sex with the same person forever. The thing about sex is that us as humans always want more and what is even more exciting is having a new partner. Its is an inconceivable thought to me that people actually believe that they can expect their partner to never imagine having sex with someone other than their significant other. I am not saying that everyone will act on their desire but trust me it is definitely a thought that will cross their mind several times over the length of your relationship, marriage, whatever!
The problem with sex is that as much as people say they want to have no strings attached sex with others. That seems to never be able to work out that well, I am pretty sure there are some cases that have succeeded. Humans are not only selfish and greedy but we are emotional which means we have feelings. When those feelings get involved in a sexual relationship, everything tends to go downhill from there.
For example, the average person is in a committed relationship with someone for 2+ years. Typically, one or both parties are pursuing an outside relationship whether it may purely be sexually or not. Eventually the person on the side becomes attached to the other and when that happens that causes said person to want ‘more’ from their already complicated situation. This puts the person in the relationship in an awkward position because although they may or may not have feelings for this other person. They never considered leaving their significant other for this person who has become such a major part of their life. This brings me to the selfishness.
The selfish person wants the best of the both worlds; they want their past and their present. This is rarely a situation that will ever work out. Someone always ends up getting affected in a not so positive way. But you have to understand if you are the person who is involved with the selfish person, that you can not honestly expect this person to ever be faithful to you. After all you became involved with this person while they were being unfaithful to someone they ‘loved’. So what do you do? Hell I don’t know that is completely up to the person. Whatever you decide to do, do not regret it because your entire life can change based upon one decision.
So the point of this..there is none…except that I don’t believe in commitment or relationships. I mean I have my reasons for my beliefs and everyone should be allowed to form their own opinion from their own experiences. So let me know how it works out for you.
