Why Men Cheat, according to horner men themselves

Friday, August 24, 2018

If could happen to Beyonce, it can possibly happen to you. If you think I’m talking about sold out shows and millions of adoring fans, I’m not. I’m talking about getting ‘horn’. It’s happened to so many Trinis that it seems to have become a way of life. There are songs dedicated the practice, drinks have been named after it and of course many people are a product of it. There is a reason why your cousin Tony looks nothing like his dad but is the splitting image of his neighbour. Every guy has their reasons, I suppose. Here are some reason why men cheat:

1. We want out of a relationship

Believe it or not some men deliberately cheat their way out of a relationship. Instead of coming clean about their desire to move on, they will instead sleep with someone else without even really trying to cover their tracks. Believe it or not, they want to get caught. What truly scares the shit out of guys is the woman who decides to stay knowing fully well she is being cheated on. But I digress. This is the mark of a man who thinks that cheating is easier that confronting the real issue, that maybe it’s simpler than breaking up with the person and moving on than all the games.

2. Why the hell not?

I’ve spoken to many guys that cheat throughout their relationship without any kind of remorse. They all have the same reasoning – they do it because an opportunity to shag something strange happened. By strange, I mean, new ting. They aren’t experiencing any problems in their relationship or anything like that, they just simply can get away with it.

Long-time cheater Jerome, 36, admits “At first it was really exciting, you know the thought of doing it without getting caught. There was a thrill to it. It’s not even something I really think about. I have no intention of leaving my wife or anything, I think we’re happy. It’s just something I do from time and again.”

3. Something lacking at home

Mike, 30, after being in a relationship for five years and married for five more found things just weren’t the same anymore. It’s sounds so cliché, I know. It’s a one of those excuses that makes you want to break a lamp on someone’s head. One minute you think you’re in a committed relationship, the next thing you know you’re figuring out how to entertain a grown man while convincing him to keep his parts in his pants. I digress.

Mike went on, “Sometimes a person comes along and just get you and there is that fire again, you know like what you felt when you just met the person you’re cheating on. I guess it happened because the attraction was new and fresh, it was exciting getting to ‘fall in love again I guess’?”
