Too Many Options
“Men are as faithful as their options.” We’ve all heard it, and this inconvenient truth has resurfaced as of late thanks to Shaq’s new book, citing this very reason as the source of his own infidelities. Men spend a significant portion of their existence building wealth, muscles and confidence just to be considered as a sex partner. Once he’s attained enough of either, he’ll attract multiple women and be rewarded for all of that self-improvement. Sometimes wealth and fame comes very fast, giving he who posesses those qualities a disproportionate number of options. It’s not easy to walk away from every single opportunity. Of course, this doesn’t apply to all men, just most of the ones many women are interested in. By comparison, men that are broke and swaggerless have a higher propensity to be faithful. A lifestyle of poverty and/or insecurity doesn’t bring a lot of options or opportunity. Unfortunately, these men are also less desired by women. Go figure.
