No. This half answer is specious. You've provided a convenient justification for people who are often indifferent to their partner's feelings or are poor communicators. If you have communicated your discontent to your partner to no avail, and HE or SHE has shown HIS or HER indifference by simply refusing to acknowledge you or fix the problem, then that is a different matter. But in such a scenario, you should probably exist the relationship anyway.My 2 cents worth says:
You are acting like a high school brat. People cheat because they are not getting what they need. Attention from the other person.
they cheat because they don't feel needed or wanted and are taken for granted often.
To call one a slut is just wrong. If a man cheats and doesn't get caught hes the "MAN", if a woman cheats she is a "Slut". Fact is they are both loosers who care little for the relationship they are in.
If you treat people the way you wish to be treated you get it, when you treat them like crap you get crap in return.
You need to think about what is going on in your life and figure out where you want to be and who you want to be with. Before you throw away a good thing try talking with her and listen to what she tells you. You just might be the issue that needs to be fixed. Cheating only hurts it never solves any thing.
If she is worth keeping find out what is going on.
The fact is, some men and women do get cheated on because they are emotionally unavailable. They have low emotional intelligence, and they need to grow up a bit in that regard. However, the nice thing about being a life partner, is that there's nobody better than you and the therapist to help your partner improve that issue. If that person isn't worth the hassle, then that is the wrong relationship to be in.
Nursingmommys5, it is true that some people are cheated on because they've forgotten how to pay attention. I think I've addressed why that doesn't give their partners moral license to do whatever they please. Yet you can't deny that some people cheat because they are just callous. I know because I've acted that way.
I have been the insensitive callous prick. It wasn't a serious relationship; the girl was terrible in bed; she was horrendously immature (likely due to neglect from an overworked father), she was maudlin (foolishly sentimental); she was a disgustingly sloppy eater; she had a stinky box is; and she seemed to have gained at least 20 pounds from when my friend dumped her. But I humored her and agreed to be her 'boyfriend' despite the fact that I was screwing someone else. The fact is, I simply didn't have the balls to tell her everything that I couldn't stand about her. That was my immaturity: spinelessness. Regardless, I wanted to keep her around for sex as long as I could (or until I was just too repulsed) because it's famine or feast with me. The point is that I was insensitive; I was callous; I was selfish; and if other people's feelings are worth considering, it was on me to let her know how I felt much sooner than I did. It could have prevented any undue attachment to me.
