CHEATING continues to be a problem that a number of couples have to deal with daily. The reasons for the act are many, varied, and sometimes even questionable, as is the case when the cheating happens with someone who may not be as attractive or intelligent as the cheater's partner.

Many times there's no honest reason given when the cheater is asked why, as, among other things, he may want to spare his spouse's feelings and get back on her good side fast. Many men will just say they couldn't help themselves; lie that the women threw themselves at them; lie that they were drunk, and pledge never to do it again, until the cycle is repeated.

So want to know why he really cheated? The men below give the real story.

Dave O, 29, in a relationship two years:

I found out that my girlfriend cheated on me and so I deliberately cheated back. Revenge is the only reason I cheated.

Collin C, 38, married four years:

I was not getting any loving at home.

Brian C, 25, married one year:

I haven't cheated yet, nor do I foresee or even think about cheating. But in general men cheat because of revenge, not being sexually satisfied, and if the woman is not willing to explore different sexual styles, etc.

Chenton B, 27, in a relationship one year:

One burner can't work! We are cultured to cheat because boys are encouraged to have many girlfriends while girls are seen as loose if they have many boyfriends.

Andrew H, 34, in a relationship four years:

If she is not very good in bed he will go out there and find somebody else who is very good in bed. But while we are natural predators we can curb our appetite still.

Patrick W, 37, in a relationship seven years:

Lack of sex. Then I always see other women that I admire and like.

Conrad H, 38, married eight years:

I have a woman who is consistently nagging and miserable and who makes me very unhappy.

Marlon W, 38, in a relationship four years:

Boring sex and poor communication.

Wayne W, 40, married 11 years:

I was getting very little sex and it was boring! On top of that she was a nag. We didn't seem to have much in common anymore.

David H, 43, in a relationship two years:

One time I found a girl who was hotter than my girlfriend, and another time I found one who wanted sex, no strings attached, so I took up the offer.

William W, 39, married three years:

I tripped and accidentally fell on another girl.

Benjamin C, 34, single (as a result):

No sex. My girlfriend decided to lock shop on me and so I went out and patronised the next one that was available.
