There are plenty of reasons that men or women for that matter have affairs. Not every affair is because of some imagined mid-life crisis and the reasons men have affairs are usually pretty simple. Let’s get into detail the reasons for the affair. You may be surprised at some of the reasons men have for having an an affair.
Men are creatures of ego and an affair can stroke his ego. Men are nowhere near as confident as they outwardly appear and they need boosts in their confidence as much as women do. Men like to feel wanted and loved and if their spouse isn’t giving them that then they will turn to a woman who does. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they don’t love their wife or that their wife doesn’t love and appreciate them. However everyday life can leave a couple too exhausted make time for each other. The women in the affair will find his jokes funny, think him handsome and boost his confidence all of the time.
For many men there is nothing more exciting that the thrill of the chase. That thrill doesn’t end just because someone got married, for some guy it’s part of their nature and find monogamy difficult. These guys get a rush from pursuing and finally catching a woman if you will and that is a big part of the appeal. At the same time they like secrecy and danger that is associated with having an affair. The thrill of maybe getting caught is every bit as appealing as the sex. It’s the drama they are addicted to as much as the sexual conquest.
The Grass is Greener
This is one of the more common reasons that men have affairs. Another woman who is attractive and that finds him interesting, is concerned with her appearance and doesn’t complain about toilet seats or toothpaste caps. A relationship that looks like it is hassle free where a man can just relax and enjoy being with a woman without all of the family and relationship trappings has its appeal and it can be very easy to have an affair. If things are rocky at home, men may look for a stress free environment where no one approaches them with a “honey do” list.
These are just a couple of reasons that people have affairs but these tend to be the most common. Affairs don’t have to be the end of your relationship it can just be a getaway from the hassles of everyday life.
