Men Cheat to Get a Boost of Self Esteem (Reason #7)

Another one that will surely come as a shock: according to Match.com and Yahoo.com, the seventh reason men cheat is to get a sorely needed shot of self esteem. The example cited in the article is about a man who was always shy and never felt comfortable approaching women. He was in a relationship with a woman who was just as shy. Their relationship was okay, but nothing great.


One night on a business conference he was hit on by a very attractive and intelligent woman. Having never been hit on like this before, his self esteem shot up and he felt like he was on top of the world! They hung out a couple times during the conference. He never told his ex about the experience, but he did break up with her a few months later. He never ended up seeing the woman from the conference again. But, the experience gave him new found self confidence.
