I Want to Know Why Married Men Fool Around

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 246 People

    I'm Sure There's Many Varied Reasons

    But I think it's telling that one of the biggest and fastest growing groups on this site is the "I live in a sexless marriage" group. I haven't strayed, but damnit if I don't feel the urge every single day. There's more to it than just "Men are scum".

    Get real, women fool around too,

    it's human nature sadly. Let the perfect person step forward! Women, if you were cheated on, look at what you might have done, or not done for it to happen. Men... See above!

    Because You Let Us

    Are you serious? If the opposite gender wasn't allowing contact or interest to anyone. there wouldn't be any fooling around. Somebody's looking. somebody's lonely. somebody's horny, pick one! Just don't gender bash, it's an excuse for anyone that isn't satisfied w/ their own...

    Ugh. I'm tired of the ***

    who flirted with me and now won't speak to me. Ignores my messages and emails. I ask why and get no response. Really? Yes I know you're married. You use social sites with an old pic to lure women in. I feel for your wife. I wonder if she knows how lead women on. I wasn't looking...

    Seriously. And its not

    even the ones with the frumpy wives. If my wife looked like Sophia Bush and was willing to switch it up, I wouldnt wanna stray just because it might mess up what I already have.

    Really?

    If you're going to fool around..DON'T get married. If you aren't happy in you marriage..get out of it first BEFORE you cheat. What's the problem?? For women who go after married men...you're all idiots and ******.

    Through His Eyes

    I am attracted to a man I can not have. He pursues me shamelessly, but he's married. I ask him why me and he replies, "I know what I like." What a confusing statement! He makes me feel alive again. He tells me I'm beautiful, sexy, and intelligent. But I have to let him go...
