We know, this isn’t the usual uplifting fare we provide but you can also see this as things you should avoid. Or better still, if the odds are stacked up against you, cut your losses.

When Women Cheat

Women who engage in being unfaithful to their partners are not as uncommon as you would think. According to the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, 54% of women admit to being unfaithful in any relationship in their lifetime as compared to 57% of men. However, when married, the statistics take a drastic turn and only 14% of women admit to infidelity while married while 22% of men admit to straying at least once in their married lives. Women and men are not that different in that respect but why they cheat is a horse of a different color.

Male Entitlement And Infidelity

Male entitlement is the belief that men are entitled to sex whenever they want. They are taught that lack of ejaculation can lead to pain and discomfort. They are taught that ‘no’ means ‘yes’ and women are teases. They are taught that they have no control over their urges and the way a woman acts, dresses or speaks is an invitation to have sex. They are reminded everyday on the news that consent can be given by a little girl or a woman if she is inebriated.

Stop Being The Mistress

I have been nice this week discussing mistresses. I understand on a professional level that it takes a certain kind of woman to be a mistress and there is an inherent brokenness in these women that cannot be denied. That being said, this does not excuse the behavior. If a man dupes you and you find out he is married, the right thing to do is end the relationship. However, if your eyes are wide open and you enter a relationship with a married man, you know that you are potentially party to destroying a family or, at the very least, a marriage.

Mistress Myths

A mistress is a nice way of saying a woman who has sex with a married man. The term Mistress harkens back to the days of the swank New York apartment and your man showing up with enough time to have a drink and a bonk before rushing out to get home to his family. These women would spend their days shopping or getting their hair done, just waiting for when their temporary man came to visit. She was on hold. She was not allowed to date or the swanky apartment would disappear.

How not to get hooked by a catfisher

We have all been duped somehow in relationship. If you have reached your 30’s and have never been duped in some way then you are either a nun or are in the process of being duped. We know this sounds cynical but if we are to agree that being duped is ‘lied to’ then you see why we make the assertions we do. If we are to place being lied to on a relationship continuum, we on one end we would have little white lies like your weight or, maybe, experience. On the other end of the continuum, we would see uglier lies like infidelity but the ugliest lie of all is lying about who you are.

A Letter To Catfishers

Why would someone pretend they are someone else on the internet? What would compel someone to engage in a relationship on-line while lying about who they really are? CoupleDumb has seen some pretty weird shit in our day but catfishing is not just weird, it is sick. The idea of playing with the feelings of another human being is not new and it was not invented by cyber jerks. People have been doing this since Neanderthals parted their hair to look nice. However, catfishing has brought this horrible practice to a global scale and the deception can go deeper than ever before. However, to be clear, whether you are deceiving a person face to face or virtually, you have some serious mental health issues.
