Cheating Down: Why do men cheat with women who are less attractive and less accomplished?

I’m sure you’ve seen it. You see a guy with his wife or girlfriend and you think to yourself… She’s got it going on. She’s beautiful, intelligent, funny… That’s a lucky guy.

Then… you see this same guy out somewhere CREEPIN’ with another chick. And you think to yourself… what in the WORLD does he see in her? She doesn’t have ANYTHING on his wife/ girlfriend! She doesn’t have a job, she’s rude… and she's not even HALF as attractive as the woman he has at home!

Men – have you cheated down and after getting busted asked yourself… was it worth it?

Ladies – have you felt like your man cheated down on you? How did it make you feel?

And be honest… what would feel worse – a man that cheated down or a man that cheated up?

I believe the reason a man might cheat down is because they aren't looking to replace the woman they are with. It might be a case where as the man is just trying to take the edge off a problem is his main relationship. There maybe a serious issue in the man's main relationship that the man has a problem addressing but he is not ready to break it off or deal with. Instead the man may use a relationship with the lesser woman as a way of dealing with the problem but never really had real intention of getting serious with her.

I agree with Danise. That is usually the biggest problem out of cheating. I don't care how good of a person you are when you reach that point of so many "NO's" even the best of people can do things they may never do!

Hey CJ Jackson the reason might simply be because wifey ain't doing her job. I hear it all the time. Married men cheat up or down simply because they are bored or wifey says no more times then not. Married women spice it up sometime and take care of your man.

Men cheat down because they can. They don't want to lose the one they're with, so they aren't tempted or motivated to leave the one they love.

I don't think people care or consider how a person looks or what they do. Some people are just attracted to other people and it starts from there. Sometimes the chemistry is strong. That is why you should not play with fire because you might get burnt. I should know....

Could be a control thing. If their woman looks good, educated and can hold her own and the mistress is the opposite, then maybe he wants to feel like he has control or power over the mistress. The wife will stand up on her own while the mistress will run to his beck and call because she wants to feel wanted (not all situations). I have a co-worker who is very overweight and does not care much for her hygiene but both of the men she is involved with are married. It is a sex thing but one of them she is falling in love with. As I look at the men wives, they are better looking than she and keep themselves up.

First of all, what woman thinks she ugly??? It's all in the eyes of the beholder. Cheating is cheating. If the guy is caught.....will he choose the other woman if he is given the choice? NO!!!!

My ex-husband cheated on me several times. We've been married for less than two years. The sad part is that I'm a accomplished woman. When I found out who he was seeing I thought to myself "seriously no this fool didn't ." Also, she's just as nasty because she knew he was married-so what does that say about her. I do not feel that he has feelings for this woman. I believe it's a sex thing.
I was hurt when I found this out, but in the long run he's going to be the one hurting. Like the old saying goes "lay down with dogs and you'll end up with fleas." I'm to good of a person for that.
