Yeah, no it's not.  Cheating is the ultimate cowardly endeavor.  Your relationship sucks, but you don't have the balls to tell the other person you're unhappy and you want out, so you screw around behind their back....because that'll magically make everything better.  I've never been cheated on, nor have I ever cheated on someone, but I've had friends go through agonizing break-ups/divorces because their partner couldn't keep their genitals to themselves.

Look folks, if you want to be a grown-up and do grown-up things, act like a farking grown-up.  This includes not screwing around on your significant other.  This is real simple, square peg goes in the square hole kind of common sense stuff.

Things that are taboo are the most exciting sexually

Wether it be public sex, incest, cheating, just knowing that its wrong makes it more fun

Why is that?

I agree 100%. I have been cheated on, it sucks and I've never cheated on someone I was with. If you're in a relationship be honest that you want it to end or be open and even in open relationships there are rules to abide by. Cheaters just seem so insecure they have sex with people and make sure their together before they break up with the person they're with.

As a teacher, I've told students straight up that I don't, under any circumstances, endorse cheating, but I also understand that everyone cheats, at least a little bit, at least once in their lives. As such, if they can cheat without getting caught, I say they're earned it if they're fine with the guilt (assuming they feel any remorse at all). But if you're caught, you better believe I'm punishing you to the fullest extent the administration will allow.

Well, FTFA:
They problem is that they aren't. Instead, as a study recently published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found, people who get away with cheating are likely to feel pretty good about it, as long as they're convinced no one has been hurt by their dishonesty.

But people do find out and with STD's a problem in this country it is potentially harmful. So what if some jerk off gets a high not getting caught it doesn't make it right. I've heard shoplifters get a similar high. Doesn't make that right either.

If you wanna fark lot's of people stay single or find someone that wants an open relationship.

Look, I understand where you are coming from but genitals don't really think all on their own. If someone is cheating there is a problem in that relationship somewhere. The problem with cheating is that it is a poor coping strategy for the problems in a relationship. But cheating doesn't cause relationship to break up; the underlying problems do.

It's alright, I guess you're right still, whatever idiot made this claim probably should be investigated for tax fraud. It's still a cope out, trying to say people are hard-wired for it.

The article is not about what you tink it was going to be about.  You were called out on it, went to read the article and still cant admit it.   Apparently we ARE hard wired for deception.
 
2013-09-14 12:11:32 AM
Not surprising. As the article points out, humans are *far* from the only species that deceive. 'Survival of the fittest' doesn't mean 'only the strong survive', after all. The smarter (and thus, trickier) members of a species have their own advantages.

No I thought I admitted it in my last post ( sorry if I was unclear) or so where I said the dude that did this study should be investigated for tax fraud. And that it's a cope out whether sexual or not saying cheating is human nature.

Why the truck stop?
Because I can get 15 minutes in the shower for $5.
Why with my sister?
I like how her mustache feels against my scrotum and my wife doesn't have a mustache.
Why do it while listening to the Beebz?
Because I like to pretend it's his mustache that's rubbing against my ball sack.

Unfortunately, so do a lot of them. The less competent but more suave cheats just manage to bamboozle hiring directors and put their departments through a few months or years of pain before finally being fired - they gravitate toward the spineless managers that won't fire unless told it's him or them. The more competent have their cousin Jim pretend to be the manager at some other business they were "employed" at for the last ten years, and then farm all of their work out to subcontractors in India.

For every one that gets caught and ends up as a Fark headline or watercooler story, ten more are doing it. Just like only the incompetent accountants get caught keeping two books instead of submitting expenses under various rotating executives' names.

That's strange, my wife should have been home from her yoga class hours ago.

Oh well, she probably just stopped for a tea with the instructor. She's always telling me how well they get along. He and his girlfriend have been together for years. Before they moved here they lived at a commune that emphasized sharing everything in life. So, they are obviously very moral people and I have nothing to worry about.

Underlying problem being that one partner is selfish, cowardly, and an abuser of trust.
