According to a poll of 3,000 people conducted by British dating firm Coffee & Company, nine percent of their male respondents were certain they'll be unfaithful if they fell for somebody else. Meanwhile, 25 percent of their female respondents admitted that they would definitely have an affair if an outsider piqued their interest.
Here, 10 women who revealed why they cheated or what *might* push them to cheat on their significant others:
"It's simply because I wasn't happy anymore. I kept searching for something that was lost along the way—the spark, the thrill, the happiness, love, lust, and everything in between."
- Monica, 24
"Guys stop doing something exciting and fun just because they have been in a relationship for a long time. So when I feel less valued, and taken for granted yet he doesn’t want to set me free because he is selfish and a jerk, then it's time to cheat."
- Kristine, 22
"I cheated because I found the things that my boyfriend was not able to provide from another man. Yes, I do love him but to be honest, I didn't see a future with him. Another experience naman kaya ako nag-cheat dahil sa kind of work ko. I must say, dahil sa tukso. I work in events so madami akong nakikilalang lalaki."
- Chia, 27
"I cheated because I was not contented with my relationship. Maybe it's an effect of being selfish. Or maybe we could also blame the guys for their unwillingness to grow up."
- Christma, 22
"I’ll probably cheat on my boyfriend if he doesn't give me enough time. We need a partner to touch, to cry on, and be clingy with."
- Jamcy, 19
"Three reasons. (1) Comforting na merong tao na may concern pa sa’yo when everyone turns against you. (2) Nabu-boost 'yung self-esteem ko. (3) Revenge."
- Chai, 24
"Nagagawa kong manloko kasi hindi ko na siya mahal. Sinabihan ko na siya pero ayaw niya naman kumalas."
- Shiela, 18
"First, when the love is gone. Second, when I can't handle the things that are happening in our relationship. Third, if I'm not happy anymore. Fourth, if he's not the man that he used to be. And lastly, when I learn that he's also cheating."
- Marj, 20
"I'd likely cheat on my partner if he can't last longer and satisfy me in bed. And as an adventurer, I seek for excitement."
- Shine, 19
"Because you're no longer in love with him or there's no more spark at all."
"As a woman, the most common reason why we cheat is because we are unhappy with our partners. They don't live up to our expectations which lead to disappointment and cheating."
- Richelle, 19
