I’ve been wondering lately, not for any specific reason, why more women are entertaining the thought of having a fling or affair of the heart. I have a wide circle of friends and this topic eventually comes around the room at some point. (No, it‘s not YOUR wife who has mentioned it!) Women are sharing their stories more openly to one another of opportunities presented to them to cheat on their significant other.
Is it that we are being more truthful with one another or has this always been there but we haven’t dared talk about it so openly? Is it becoming more acceptable because we are desensitized by what we see on a regular basis in the real world? Or maybe it’s just an age thing? As we get older are we starting to think about how much time we have left to really enjoy our bodies.
Are we aware of the younger generation and how relaxed they are about their sexuality? Does this make us envy their carefree attitude? Has sex become something of a extracurricular activity that doesn’t mean what it used to. Sharing yourself with someone used to be a big deal, but again maybe it’s just an age thing. Some couples waited until marriage to share themselves with their spouse, they were called Virgins. (insert cheeky grin here) I think some still do? I know women who have married their first sexual partner. And some who weren’t even close. Which makes me wonder if it’s realistic today to marry your first sexual partner. Does that alone peak your curiosity about other men or women? How could it NOT. I will file that topic for another post.
Today there is ‘friends with benefits‘ and less pressure to be in a monogamous relationship. What’s happening to us ? Are we starting to think it is unrealistic to be with the same person for the rest of our lives? Ya think? (that’s just my opinion)
Marriages end in divorce more than ever before. Sometimes because of that fling or affair of the heart. It’s not normal to have sexual chemistry with someone for 20 years. Or is it? I have yet to meet a couple who does. Leave a comment if you still have sexual chemistry with your spouse and how you keep it. But be HONEST!
What I have gathered in my research is that women cheat for many reasons and each situation is unique but the main reason is because of how the ‘other’ man makes them feel. It’s not generally for money or status. It’s pretty basic, ‘he makes me feel like I used to‘. It’s the little things our partner does for us that make us feel good when we first meet. That is perhaps what we are missing that leads us down the path of self gratification. The initial sexual chemistry fades but a deeper love becomes present in most long term relationship that is more satisfying than a meaningless sexual encounter. (for most)
So men …if you can make your woman feel like she used to then perhaps her thoughts of cheating will stay just that…a thought. And women, if we treated our men as we do the ones we just met, perhaps we would hold onto that chemistry we are all searching for. Or not…lol Comments are always welcome!
