Have you ever been in a situation where your SO is not answering, not communicating? Did you have the urge to text an Ex or friend that you know is probably a bad idea, but you are starved for attention…
I wonder what women in relationships did, when there wasn’t constant access to their person. Did they simply occupy themselves with something productive? Instead of worrying about how their boyfriend didn’t text them all day or is seemly ignoring them? Alas, we no longer live in that world and I guess, unfortunately for men they have more ways to disappoint us :-)
Back to that urge I mentioned earlier, could be called sexist but I believe women experience this more often than men. Which brings me to why some women cheat. Or maybe give the benefit of the doubt and say, almost cheat. Man down. It starts with the urge to call or text, then it turns into lunch, then drinks. You may catch a friendly movie and then…I believe I can safely say, almost 90% women and men cheat for different reasons. For women a lot of the time its emotional. Its them searching for something they aren’t getting at home. That thing they are searching for could be physical too. What ever it is, its lacking where they currently are, There is a man down on the job.
In a relationship, I, from personal experience know that when I am getting everything I need, I look nowhere else. And my needs are quite simple. Things don’t have to be perfect, that’s not what I expect. I do however expect communication and consideration. I do want time, dates…and some other stuff >;-). When I don’t get those things though, and it begins to become a constant thing my mind wonders. I have not cheated though in a relationship…I will leave you before I cheat.
A lot of the times I think men don’t realize the importance of things or the consequences of repeated offenses. Don’t respond a couple of times, maybe you were busy. No problem. Break plans once or twice, hey *shoulder shrug* things come up. Avoid talking about something because you don’t want to argue. Ok, maybe now is not the time but don’t let it build up. When these things become a pattern, giant red flag. Nine times out of 10 there is someone to take your place. Even if its only for that moment. Even if its just some texts. Your girl has just been keeping them at bay for the sake of being a loyal woman. Man down on the job…man losing something awesome. Even though some women just stay in that said neglectful situation. Not this one over here. Oh, and the guy in the pic is not dead lol. Just too much to drink…it was hilarious.
