i managed to catch up with a friend over some drinks at a gorgeous bar recently, and this interesting topic about cheating men stroke up. She said,
“All men cheat. ALL men, Cindy. It’s just a matter time; for him to do it, and for you to find out. If he doesn’t do it now, maybe 3, 4 years later? It’s better to learn about the truth now than to find out about it later. Some women choose to live in denial; they just don’t see the signs. It’s either you are very naive you don’t see it, or you’re so lucky you meet a (really) good guy. i’ve got a friend who’s married with her husband who has this beautiful wife, beautiful house, beautiful kids. Beautiful. One day, she found him making out in a club somewhere with another woman! Men are animals. They just want to re-procreate. It’s their nature. All men cheat, Cindy.”
i listened intentively; trying to reroute my point of view towards her angle, allowing the liberating conversation to overwhelm my wine-drenched mind. i’ve always believed that at least 40% of the men out there are loyal. (loyal: men who practice the rule-of-thumb to at least breakup with you first before they ‘cheat’.) The word ‘ALL’ in her context, if not 100, means 99% to me; which equals up to the same sum anyway. Here is a short video i came across recently about a broken hearted girl who got cheated by her boyfriend:
Do you think ALL men cheat?
