Keep Him From Cheating

There's an article on MSN announcing Gary Neuman's book about cheating and the truth behind it. I only scanned the article. He was also on Oprah and I could only watch the show for a few minutes.

The implication that it is a woman's responsibility to keep her man from cheating pisses me the hell off.

I think this is dangerous because it will result in women blaming themselves for something that is not their fault. Shit.

If you are in a committed relationship (KEYWORD: COMMITTED), why the hell do I have to do a got-damn thing to keep you from cheating? If I'm committed I'm not cheating and I expect the same in return. If there is no committment, then obviously all bets are off.

You cannot stop someone from cheating if that is what they want to do. And if that is what they want to do ... then roll the hell on.

I have absolutely no tolerance for that bullshit.

Can you tell?

Woman's responsibility, eh? That's a cop-out to the 10th power.

Don't get me started. That falls in line with my expectancy post. If I'm committed I "expect" you not to cheat. I have no tolerance for either.

Thanks for saving my tv. If you would have told me it was coming on, I would have thrown one of my good shoes at the tv.

Cheating sucks.
Do I blame me when he doe sit...hell no.
I blame him for being weak...wiht little to no intergrity.
Then I blame myself for not seeing that shit sooner.

I saw that show and I had to laugh... they sold that junk to the public, and some people were buying it. EVEN some women!

But I loved the follow up show when the women called in and were beefing to the guy who wrote the book and one woman took task at telling Oprah about herself. Saying she was letting the guys off the hook by saying it was the woman's fault.

Very interesting show... I'm going to see if I can pull that junk off on the missus. Yeahh honey. It was YOUR fault I accidentally fell into her punani.. lol

Amen and ^5. Whew! I am tired of all the BS spewed at us(women) through multi-media. I just heard a minister say that 70% of the males he counsels says they cheated because their mates did not feel special from their mates. WTF! That is a cop-out.

I agree about committment. I should not have to jump through hoops for a man to commit.

Shoot, that's all you had to say right there, Oldgirl.

I know something about this very subject from a couple I've known for a lifetime. She was putting out and doing tricks. It didn't matter! It has nothing to do with women, but everything to do with men’s ego. Holla!
