Oh and apples, apples make guys cheat. (We're supporting them. No really, we're making more than they are and it's making them want to put their penis in things.
New research suggests men are more likely to cheat if they make significantly less than their girlfriends.
Author Christin Munsch developed the study after hearing from a male friend explain his reason for cheating. Here's what he told her: "she made all the money, she had all the friends, and he'd moved up there to be with her. He felt completely powerless."His gripe may be one reason Munsch found that more men cheated compared to women, with a disparity of income a contributing factor. Musch's guess is that they experience a "gender identity threat." They're supposed to be bread winners and instead they're watching the fourth hour of the Today Show and cleaning out the kitty litter. So naturally they have to find something to pour their energy into. And it's not work.
Wait a second. Now it's poor guys who cheat? Wasn't the rule of thumb to beware of super-successful guys? They can't help it because they've got women throwing themselves at them, right?
Oh and there's that emotional disconnection thing. When women stop paying attention to them because they're more involved with child-rearing, men seek attention from outside sources.
But sometimes they cheat because they don't want the intimacy of relationship sex.
And because they're choc-aholics...but for sex.
And because of business trips.
And because they're dumb.
And because they're supposed to age better than women.
And because they were nerds in high school and are late-bloomers finally coming out of their shell.
And also because of evolutionary biology.
And because they feel trapped and because they're bored and their friends do it.
And because it feels good.
Stop. I'll take that one. That one's fine. The one that's not somehow our fault is good.
