200 men were surveyed. Some had cheated before, others hadn’t. 48% of the men that had cheated said that they did it because they were emotionally dissatisfied. They felt like they weren’t an equal part of the relationship or weren’t being heard. Men do not express feelings as women do most of the time, so this was their venting method of choice.
