Data from studies are always changing about why women cheat and how many women are really cheating. One of the top reasons a woman will cheat is because some or all of her emotional needs are not being met. Approximately 20% of women who cheated said that it was a sexual reason.
Women are emotional people. While men deal with a lot and seemingly move on from things more rapidly, women tend to get emotional. Women hold on to their feelings longer and want to be heard by their partners. While each woman and relationship is different, when women feel emotionally connected to their partner, the chances of them cheating is less. When that emotional connection in a relationship is weak or not existing, the woman may find someone else to fulfill her emotional needs and make that emotional connection.
There are certain times in a woman’s life that she wants and needs her partner most. Birthday’s and holiday’s are times when women often cheat. For women, birthday’s and holiday’s can be emotional times. If a birthday is one of those decade birthday’s a woman can be thinking about her fertility or all the things she didn’t accomplish in the last year or how her body is changing. Like birthday’s, holiday’s can be emotional and stressful times. If the support of her partner isn’t there or strong, the opportunity to share those times with someone else might be tempting.
Like men, women cheat as a way of payback. If a woman thinks her partner has cheated or is thinking about cheating, she may feel the need to cheat.
While statistics say that only 20% of women that cheat do it for sexual reasons, those women have stated they cheated because of no sex or bad sex in the relationship. Women are emotional people and need that extra time to be cuddled, kissed and time for foreplay. Women who don’t receive that are inclined to find someone that will give them what’s missing from their sex life. The frequency of sex can become an issue too. Like men, women have needs too. It’s important for both partners to communicate their needs, so they can have a healthy and balanced sex life.
Some women report cheating as a way of ending the relationship. Sometimes women see cheating as the only way out of a relationship. They know the man they are in the relationship with won’t tolerate or forgive cheating. When this kind of cheating happens, often the woman will cheat in a manner as to get caught.
Sexual fantasies can be something that a woman will cheat over. If her partner does not want to help her explore her sexual fantasies, a woman might explore them with someone else if the opportunity presents itself.
Other women have said they cheated because they aren’t attracted to their partner anymore. While this is rare some women feel they are held to a standard of looking their best by their man, some women think their man should work hard to keep looking good for her.
