Askmen.com released the results of their 2011 Great Male Survey, where 70,000 men participated from the United States, Canada, England and Australia, answering questions about everything from dating and sex  to their everyday life. As I was reading through the survey, quite amused, there was one statistic that caught my attention. When the men were asked “IF THERE WERE NO CHANCE OF YOUR PARTNER FINDING OUT, HOW LIKELY WOULD YOU BE TO CHEAT?” a whopping 72% of them said that they would never or most likely would never. Maybe it’s just because I live in Los Angeles or I just have my own personal misconception of relationships, but to me it has always seemed as though most people cheat. And even after this survey, I still think they do. Now I have never cheated on anyone nor have ever been cheated on, at least to my knowledge, but if a man, or a woman, cheat but they still love their partner and don’t take the person they cheated with seriously, is it really that bad? I see it as more of a response to an animalistic instinct. I understand if you want to break up with a significant other for cheating because you are hurt but if you share a family or are still madly in love, is it worth breaking off everything you guys had? I agree that cheating is bad but maybe it’s not as bad as most may think. What’s your opinion on cheating?
