Are guys more likely to cheat than girls?

 
Are guys more likely to cheat than girls?

Movies and television often give guys a bad rap making them out to be deceitful, selfish jerks. Which came first though—the cheating boyfriend or the movie about the cheating boyfriend? It’s fair to say that teenaged guys are still maturing so their judgment isn’t always the best...but teenaged girls are ALSO maturing, right? So who cheats more?

Whether you think it's guys or guys, it doesn't much matter...cheating is not ok. Anyone who’s ever been cheated on will tell you it hurts. Being betrayed by someone you thought you loved—or at least someone you liked enough to date!—sucks and there's no getting around it. But just because your boyfriend did you wrong or your girlfriend broke your heart doesn't mean that ALL guys or girls are cheaters. So don't let one bad apple spoil the bunch.

Have you ever been cheated on? Was it a girlfriend or boyfriend? What’d you do to get over it? Let us know in the comments!

I've been cheated on one too many times. And i believe that guys will fall in love with one girl and then when they get their heart broken they just dont care anymore, so they start cheating. And once they start they cant stop. I wish everyone would just quit cheating period. I mean if you arent happy, just leave. Dont hurt that person that your in a relationship in by cheating on them. Its not worth the drama, and its simply mean to do that to someone. Ive been cheated on by i dont even know how many boyfriends, and ive never cheated a day in my life. I've never even thought about it. Everyone just needs to get their crap together.

Well I have been cheated on 4 times and guys seem like they don't care how bad it hurts the girl. But I had a friend who thought about cheating while her boyfriend was away and said he will never find out so she had sex with that boy and her boyfriend found out and he cried so hard & one time I was texting this boy and he keep flirting with me and I was taken I was thinking of cheating but the I thought .. How would it hurt him ? So I guess it a even amount have cheaters between boys and girls
so I think everyone should think how is it goin to hurt your partner

ON NOVEMBER 22, 2013 AT 2:23 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

Girls, can cheat just as easily as guys. Girls arent very loyal either. What gender you are has nothing to do with it.

ON JULY 13, 2013 AT 1:54 AM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

Honestly it doesn't matter if your a guy or girl were all humans and make mistakes. I'm a girl and Ive been cheated on and Ive cheated before too I'm not happy about it but it happened once and i would never let it happen again in any relationship. We learn from our mistakes

ON JULY 3, 2013 AT 1:49 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

I totally agree with both decisions but it doesn't matter who cheat the fact is that cheating is wrong. Girls and guys cheat because they really don't have feelings for their partners. I just don't want guys to be the only ones who get blamed for the cheating.

ON JUNE 3, 2013 AT 3:21 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

that bs, i think girls cheat on guys than guys cheat on girls

ON MAY 23, 2013 AT 5:19 PM, ALEXIS SAID:

girls work the hardest in a relationship nd guys will just cheat like its no big deal

ON MAY 10, 2013 AT 12:31 PM, LEGO MAN SAID:

I agree that i don't matter

ON APRIL 11, 2013 AT 8:49 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

I'm not saying that all guys and girls cheat but some of both sex do. It doesnt matter the gender that doesnt describe who you are you do and girls cheat just as much as guys you just hear about it more that guys do because girls gossip more

ON FEBRUARY 21, 2013 AT 6:27 AM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

ON FEBRUARY 18, 2013 AT 11:18 AM, CHEYENNE CUTLER SAID:

I think that guys and girls do it its not just guys and it not just girls. We are people and I'm not saying that everyone does but its not any different if you are a guy or a girl so get over the fact that anybody can cheat.

ON FEBRUARY 7, 2013 AT 4:52 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

Both GUYS && GIRLS Cheat -.-

ON FEBRUARY 6, 2013 AT 4:27 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

Boys cheat nonstop! My past BF had sex with 2 other girls while dating me!! then he tried to do the same again with my BFF!! Never again!! Boyz cant be trusted unless your brother inspects them 24/7!

ON JANUARY 31, 2013 AT 4:08 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

girls like flirting and hanging out with guys just as much as guys like doing the same thing

ON JANUARY 25, 2013 AT 10:09 AM, SDOG SAID:

The guys just want to get it in!!!!!!! 8=====D

ON JANUARY 22, 2013 AT 11:27 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

I think the gender doesnt really apply , the reason why people cheat is because there's usually something wrong with the relationship.. But it's never okay to cheat , i've been there and i felt really bad for doing it i wont blame my ex if he never wants to talk to me again Everyone makes mistakes

ON JANUARY 14, 2013 AT 12:11 PM, CHARLIE SAID:

I would never cheat, I think both genders are equal to cheat, it depends on the person. you can not look at someone and go "oh yea ill be he will cheat" as you would not know that, and i know sometimes boys do think it, but girls also say boys are hot even if they are taken, i think everyone deserves a second chance, but you have to think if you can really go through that again, because if he/she truly loves you, they will try to prove it

ON DECEMBER 18, 2012 AT 1:03 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

I think that boys and girls are equal in the whole cheating game. once someone has cheated once, they are probable to cheat again. Guys are just more known for it because girls make bigger deals about it if they are cheated on than guys do.

ON DECEMBER 11, 2012 AT 6:22 PM, JACOB SAID:

If you like this girl right.. she was your first choice, but then there was another girl that you start to like and crush on.. you might as well take the 2nd choice because if you really liked the 1st one you would never liked the 2nd one..

ON DECEMBER 10, 2012 AT 7:10 PM, MEEP(: SAID:

Most guys are....but most aren't. I mean all guys are the same in a way. They always think about oh daym i wonder if we can have sex and stuff like that. The are gonna think that. I therefore have been cheated on 4 times by the same guy that i have been dating for 3 and a half years yet still i go to him. I think the reason girls do that if because they don't think they will have another guy so the just go back for him. I think its stupid that we do that and all us girls are getting played. Sucks.

ON DECEMBER 4, 2012 AT 12:12 AM, ANGEL SAID:

I believe that the gender dosent matter. Both genders cheat its all about if you truly love someone.

ON NOVEMBER 27, 2012 AT 9:46 PM, ALEX SAID:

I know i would never cheat (I am a guy). I think it depends on the guy. Real guys wont cheat, we are out there just go after bad boys, cuz bad boys will cheat.

ON NOVEMBER 26, 2012 AT 4:20 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

I believe that both men and women cheat about the same amount. Their reasons for cheating, however, is what differs between them. In general, I think that men cheat more for physical reasons, while women cheat for emotional reasons. Also, cheating is not just a physical act; it can be on an emotional level, too. All in all, cheating isn't OK, whether you are a man or a woman.

ON NOVEMBER 24, 2012 AT 7:47 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

I had a boyfriend that i still suspect cheated on me but i'm not completely sure if he did or not because i trusted him whole heartedly and when i called him one night some girl answered the phone and i didn't know what to do so i moved on from that relationshp and learned to let people earn your trust and to talk to them face to face no matter what its about because you'll never know the truth unless you ask for it

ON NOVEMBER 20, 2012 AT 5:16 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

Well yes, it's usually the boy who cheats, but it's not unheard of about a girl cheating on a guy. All in all, cheating is wrong.

ON NOVEMBER 20, 2012 AT 11:45 AM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

Yes and No, because it depends on if your a girl or a boy.

ON NOVEMBER 20, 2012 AT 11:44 AM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

Yes, because every other boyfriend i ever had either cheated or broke up with me and then a day later they got a new boyfriend. My opion is they are all to stupied to even keep a girlfriend.

ON NOVEMBER 14, 2012 AT 12:21 AM, MADDY SAID:

i mean idk cuz like once this guy asked me out even though he was going out with my best friend from a diffrent school, there was even pics of them all over her facebook!! so i just thought all boys are JERKS!! but then i have a really good guy friend who was dating some chic i dint know but then he saw her at the movies with a guy from our school holding hands... they were about to kiss but then she saw my guy friend.she just blushed then she and her other boyfriend walked away!!!JERK!! jeez whats up with people???? so i guess everyones the same!!!

ON NOVEMBER 7, 2012 AT 5:39 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

ive been cheated on many times. i believe its both peoples fault. guess people should pick better partners then.

ON NOVEMBER 5, 2012 AT 11:48 PM, ABBIE SAID:

i sa i have never cheated but most of my boys i left beacuse of cheating idk but i say yes

ON OCTOBER 31, 2012 AT 4:15 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

it is more likely for boys to cheat on girls because boys have a eggo and they are going to cheat no matter what boys will be boys and cheat girls cheat but girls will be the first to tell u that they have cheated im not saying that girls are perfect because we are not but im just saying girls are more faithful than boys it also doesnt matter what gender u are U CHEAT!!!!!!!!!

ON OCTOBER 30, 2012 AT 6:35 PM, JESIAH SAID:

it doesnt matter what gender you are people cheat. ALL people

ON OCTOBER 26, 2012 AT 1:12 PM, HOPE TEMPANY CARTER SAID:

I have to say Yes, both girls and guys cheat on each other, but I say that it really depends on who is the cheating and who isn't cheating, It goes back to the trust in the relationship, how much do u trust that person???? and how much trust in your girlfriend or boyfriend.

ON OCTOBER 20, 2012 AT 8:29 PM, MADISON SAID:

i said yes because boys go for every girl

ON OCTOBER 18, 2012 AT 1:45 PM, BREEZI SAID:

it is equal in my opinion it's just that it is most likely to be aired it the guys do it than the girls because "cats" are more sneaky than "dogs" sometimes it only depends on the type of guy :) i don't really think it matters

ON OCTOBER 17, 2012 AT 2:45 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

to be honest i have cheated in past relationships. gender doesnt matter. if you are not happy with your partner then just leave. no need to put anyone through that..

ON OCTOBER 9, 2012 AT 4:03 PM, THIS GUY SAID:

Girls cheat more because they usually have more choices than guys.

ON SEPTEMBER 26, 2012 AT 12:12 AM, JAMIA SAID:

well the reason boy's cheat is becuse the girlfriend was'ent good to them or they are tired of the girle's telling the men what to do with thier life.

ON SEPTEMBER 16, 2012 AT 6:14 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

Both genders obviously cheat. Personally I just feel that females, over all have more self control than males. Typically males let their penises do the thinking for them. Also it is important to factor in the fact that females mature faster than males.

ON SEPTEMBER 10, 2012 AT 3:04 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

it doesn't matter the gender. they both cheat (guys just get caught more than girls)

ON AUGUST 29, 2012 AT 8:46 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

i think both guys and girls cheat not just guys.

ON AUGUST 28, 2012 AT 10:50 PM, THUYEN SAID:

boy always does that they dont even care how girls feel

ON AUGUST 23, 2012 AT 4:32 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

everyone cheats ! at least one time !

ON AUGUST 22, 2012 AT 2:37 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

I think both boys AND girls cheat equally. Boys just tend to get caught more often because they are careless with their actions. Girls will do it and be EXTREMELY secret about it.

ON AUGUST 17, 2012 AT 12:53 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

i think both boys and girls cheat but boys cheat more

ON AUGUST 15, 2012 AT 4:10 PM, KBABE SAID:

actualy i go with guys plus it wouldnt matter anyway as long as your in love would it matter well yah it would but i would just talk through not get angry just tlk it out dont start fighting like an inconsiderent unmittuare little kid

ON AUGUST 11, 2012 AT 11:06 PM, KENYA SAID:

i believe guys cheat more bc ive gotten cheated on in all my relationships girls/anyone can do it bt most likely guys do it more

ON AUGUST 11, 2012 AT 5:29 PM, MADDIE SAID:

Doesn't matter whether you're a girl or a guy, both sexes have the capability to cheat. I know more guys who have gotten cheated on than girls that have. There have only been two of my girl friends that have gotten cheated on and I have never been cheated on; thankfully.

ON AUGUST 10, 2012 AT 8:55 PM, NOELLI SAID:

yes guys cheat more than girls because most girls are serious about their relationships because they want only one for the time they like them! Guys just want you now!!

ON AUGUST 10, 2012 AT 2:13 AM, SARINA SAID:

guys are cheaters no matter what eny one says been der done dat !
