all men cheat. it’s in their nature. they can’t help it, nor should they because that’s how they were designed to be and the sooner women come to terms with that the better.
craig was telling two girls about me and when he got to the part about me having a sex podcast and a relationship blog they assumed that meant we have an open marriage and thought we super cool for being so progressive and comfortable with our lack of monogamy.
to which craig brilliantly and cleverly responded, “uhhhhhh, no…”
when he explained that not only has he never cheated on me, but in fact has never been with anybody else period, they began to pity him. how sad that his experience is so limited and he should really fix that immediately.
turns out, their perspective is pretty normal in the 20 something crowd.
call me old fashioned, but i think that is the biggest steaming pile of bullshit i’ve ever heard.
really 20 somethings? you expect your boyfriend/husband/father to just cheat it up because, well, why wouldn’t they?
let me tell you why they wouldn’t. because while being attracted to several different people is natural, cheating on someone you are committed to is a choice.
and a shitty one at that.
calm down. i’m not here to sit in judgment over anyone who’s cheated. people make mistakes. i’m here to sit in judgment over people who believe cheating is normal, that monogamy is ridiculous and expect absolutely nothing but the lowest common denominator from the people they date.
what happened to self-control? what happened to respecting yourself and the person you’ve committed to? when did people stop learning how to say no? when did selfishness become the expectation?
gah! it’s disgusting.
dammit ladies, you need to expect more from the men around you. there are still men out there who are honorable and kind. who not only understand the importance of monogamy, but are actively pursuing it.
stop all this ridiculous settling!
what say you?
