Cheaters cheat on their relationships because something is missing in their relationshipS... I am sure that if they cheated on you that means that they have also done this with their other relationships. Cheaters are looking for something in the relationship that they are not getting so they go out looking for it else where. Instead of breaking up and being a grown up about it all they keep their relationship going so that they have something to fall back on when they dont find what they are looking for. They have no idea what it even is that they are "missing" yet they continue to take others down with them in their attempt to find that elusive missing thing. I dont think that anyone who cheats does it to "hurt" the person that they are with... I think that they do it because they really think that out there somewhere is something that they are missing out on and they are looking for it even if they are committed at the time. They think that they will find it and all the while they probably have the most amazing thing right in front of them and they have NO CLUE... until they loose it and then that person becomes the "elusive missing item" they are now looking for again...
