Women Have More Affairs But Don’t Get Caught

Are men or women more likely to cheat? While men have always had a worse reputation for being unfaithful, it appears that women are catching up fast. And, because we are more likely to lie about it, we are less likely to get caught.

Simply put, it seems that women are better at having affairs than men. Alluring black woman - jupiter images

The news that Farrah Fawcett had a secret affair for 11 years without telling a soul is a classic example of the way a woman cheats: discreetly, in secret, and while carrying on with the rest of her life as normal.

I believe that there's a lot of women out there keeping a lot of secrets.  I know a woman, who had an ongoing affair for 20 years.  She was married the entire time and her husband never suspected a thing.  Woman follow the 11th commandment 'don't get caught'.

Women have always had affairs, but over the past 20 years the numbers have risen dramatically.

Jobs outside the home -  financial independence and changing social attitudes mean that modern women simply have more opportunity to meet other men and start affairs.

Why do women lie? Because we must, and because we can. In spite of apparent equality and a more sexually open society, we are still more harshly judged for our sex lives than men. But we also lie naturally and instinctively, as a way to manage and control our relationships, to protect our partners and our families, and to keep our options open.

In fact, we lie so much and for so many reasons that often we don't even think of it as lying at all, but as 'relationship management'.

Women are taught to lie from childhood. Those simple, altruistic lies such as saying we've had a lovely time when we haven't, that someone looks nice when she doesn't, or that we're delighted with a gift we don't really like, are just some of the small ways that lying oils the wheels of our social lives, keeps the peace, and makes other people happy.

  1. I totaly diagree with lying!! Oh and please… Men are HUGE lyers!!! That is one of the problems in this world – lies!!! Why do you think this is ok? I understand that people don't tell thier secrets to keep the peace – but "lying" is horrible!!! There are so many FAKE people – especially women and to say that it is "ok" is not good!! If I don't like something (ex. – food, the way someone is dressed, the party – etc) then I don't have to say a thing. If I am ask – I have to find a "nice way" to tell the truth or beat around it/not answer. But lie… I just DISAGREE!! I enjoy reading your articles and they can be very helpful – but I feel that by writing this you are telling everyone, in an already very messed up world of everyone only caring about themselves to do something that is only making it worse rather than better.

  2. I agree with Kenna. No, not everyone lies and no it is not OK to lie, nor is it OK to have ongoing affairs. If you are having an ongoing affair, there is definitely something wrong in your life and you need to focus on how to go about fixing and changing what is wrong, not learning to be a better liar. We are women, strong, intelligent and proud, being a liar is being weak and of poor spirit. No one respects a liar and it dosen't take people long to figure out that you are not worthy of respect or friendship. You really slipped a notch in my book with this article.
