Statistically, women don't
cheat for the sake of sex. It's of secondary concern for
them. The #1 reason why they cheat is for an emotional
connection. And this is particularly true of women over
the age of 30.
In more than a few instances, women won't even cheat
physically. They will carry on emotional affairs...where
they'll fall in love and experience emotional intimacy
with a men, while never taking it to the physical level.
It's these type of affairs that can continue on for years,
without ever being detected, and often leaving a wake
of destruction in their path.
Studies have found that in long-term relationships, women,
whether they work outside of the house or not, often find
themselves "shut out" emotionally. Over 70%
of women are still the primary caregivers for their children
while also being the cook and the maid...whether or not
they have a full or part-time job. This leaves them precious
little time for themselves to foster a woman's natural
urge to grow emotionally. An urge typical ignored by men
whose primary interest is physical contact.
Thus the longing for a man who can "see who they
really are" begins. And in the weeks, months or even
years that follow, they will usually find such a man -
or think they've found one. An interesting point to takeaway
of this female need for an "emotional bond"
: affairs initiated by women generally last 3 times long
than those initiated by men.
