Why people cheat and how to prevent it from happening
Whether you are betrayed or treacherous, when the house of paper you have built over time falls, you are incredulous and fearful of the future.
Let’s not talk then if you are in the shoes of those who have been betrayed.
The first thought is that you can no longer recover the trust of the other person, you feel affected not only in the relationship you are in but in your own personal value.
Anguish, helplessness, sadness, anxiety, anger are the emotions that are fiercely felt.
At that moment, the world seems to collapse and you think you don’t have the power to turn things around.
We explain why people cheat and how to prevent it from happening.

All the fault of dopamine.
If you are a serial cheater, you should know that dopamine is one of the culprits of your elopements.
This neurotransmitter makes you feel fulfilled in the moment of the clandestine affair and causes heartbeat, appetite and excitement.
It is a feeling that, once experienced, is likely to be sought after again.
Sex has nothing to do with it
Mistakenly placing sexual activity as the focus of betrayal.
Clandestine relationships have more to do with seeking what is missing, attention, wanting to feel special, wanting what we cannot get.
In short, cheating is much more about oneself than about the relationship with the partner.Every person has needs that he or she will try to meet throughout the course of his or her life.
Cheating can be a way to fulfill specific needs.
For example, the need to be appreciated or, for the serial cheater, the (often unconscious) need for continual confirmation of one’s attractiveness.
Can cheating be prevented?
The only way to try to prevent cheating is to communicate effectively within the couple.
It is important for the two partners to exchange ideas about extramarital relationships, mutual expectations, and what does and does not work about the relationship.
Tell each other clearly what you need to be satisfied with the relationship you are in.
Do couple maintenance.Love must be nurtured.
Fidelity is a well-considered choice, it is deciding not to give in to impulses in the name of a relationship to be safeguarded.
Nurturing the relationship with compliments, gestures of affection, attention to your partner and healthy laughter will help you prevent unpleasant escapes and make your relationship worth saving.
