From Your Tango

Most men do not cheat because they don’t love you anymore. Men cheat because they want more variety in their sex lives. Some complain of being bored. They want to feel adored by their partners; they want to asert their freedom; they are tired of disappointing you; they want a partner who places them at the center of their life, and they no longer feel like the priority in yours.

Sometimes it’s because you are speaking different love languages, and some men say it is a biological directive to procreate with as many women as possible for survival of the species. Whatever the reason, men have an innate need to feel respected and appreciated by their partners. It is most disconcerting for a man to realize he has disappointed his partner in some way. He wants to be her hero.

So, here are 10 ways to prevent your man from cheating:

1. Be willing to initiate sex. Men equate sex with desirability. Help your man to feel desired by expressing your love in a physical way.

  • You can be Miss Freak-a-Leek, spin off the ceiling fan, supahead him every night and he might still tip out. Fundamentally he doesn’t respect you. How to make sure a woman commands and demands the respect and love from a man who pledges his fidelity to her would be a much more uplifting and fitting article. How to read the signs that a man doesn’t respect you (in lieu of how to spot a cheater) would be more helpful.

    A man that love, honors, and respects you (have I said respect enough?) would not cheat on you pointblank period. Somewhere along the way, perhaps he never had it or he lost respect for you; be that through lack of self esteem on his part, wanting to line up his new thing before leaving, or because he never wanted to be with you in first place it all boils down to does your man value and respect you?

    Why do these articles exist. You cannot “control” if someone cheats or “make” them stop cheating. That has to do with the persons character and moral compass.

  • bluekissess

    One article is about the 10 signs he’s a cheater and now this list to prevent him from cheating? Wth

  • Diam

    Are you kidding me? I’ve only read the title but this is ridiculous. Is this what it has come to? Have Black women become so pressed for a man, that she can only choose a cheater and outwit him to make him not cheat? Girl bye.

    Oh please hubby is a grown adult if and when he decides to cheat,it would be because he damn well pleases,I’m not the boss of him.

    Rubbish. you cannot keep anyone from doing what is in their hearts to do, very irresponsible to even imply that you can ….. no matter how much of a super woman you try to be. SMH
    Keeping one’s self together aesthetically and fitness wise is for self primarily, self image, self esteem etc.

    MN needs to do better with these articles

    Fundamentally, the article stated for women to suppress every aspect about themselves and to be accommodating to their boyfriend/husband no matter what and hope that you don’t get cheated on.

      Right isn’t it crazy? Women can’t win for trying to win…

      Where is the article titled.. How to prevent HER from cheating on you, how to make her happy, what she wants, how women think, how to keep your woman. Why do we live in a society where it seems a woman’s only role in a relationship is to keep and please a man..and when he strays its somehow her fault!! At what point does he take responsibility for his actions..i soo agree with Koari!!

        Not here or anywhere else.
