Men Cheat and Women Cheat - But when women cheat it's way more devastating and cruel, actually cruel. Because women cheat for a reason.

Women are biologically programmed to feel attraction in accordance with a dualistic mating strategy, where the most alpha men are desired for their masculine specimen status and others are desired for their ability to be good providers (Alpha Fux, Beta Bux).

Like women, men are biologically programmed to feel attraction in accordance with a dualistic mating strategy, where most all fertile women are desired for their ability to produce offspring and others are desired for their ability to be good mothers. Like women, our attraction for the opposite gender is not a choice and is rooted in biological programming coming out of evolutionary selection.

With women, however, the reason for the attraction and the ultimate act(s) of infidelity are way more devastating. This is because women cheat for a reason (even if that reason is subconscious). Guys cheat because their programming makes them generally horny and as such guys will generally fuck anything that falls above a certain rating scale number if given the chance (e.g., "For sure, I'd fuck a 9 if I knew there was no way she would find out."). A woman, however, will feel attraction and cheat on you only when some primal part of her truly feels that another other guy is somehow better than you. Either he is a more masculine specimen and she wants to fuck him way dirtier than she'd even consider with you OR he is a better provider and nurturer and she legitimately is considering leaving you for him.

When a man cheats on his woman, it is not all over. He is probably still in love with (what he sees as) "the woman of his dreams" and in no way thinks that the slut he banged is qualitatively better than his main woman (unless he continues seeing her and catches the feels). With a woman, however, as soon as she's even considered cheating it's pretty much all over. She has lost respect for you as a man, as her man, and she has consciously or unconsciously decided to seek what she's missing somewhere else. It is from this point that the end begins...

After she's decided you're no longer man enough (whether she's physically cheated or not), her hamster needs to protect her ego and somehow make it your fault. And rather than break up with you, because she realizes what a terrible thing it is to break up with you because she no longer considers you man enough; instead of that, she starts picking on you, putting you down and generally being emotional and upset with you for no reason. She makes you feel like shit, like you can never do anything right, picking fights and generally being annoying - basically being a bitch.

At this point, the only thing to do is to turn on your heel and leave. Withdraw your presence from her. Attempt dread game. Freeze her out. If she comes for you, then maybe there's hope. Remember, the threat of leaving is the only tool we really have. But the hard truth is that she probably won't come for you and there's probably no hope....
