My reply was simple. Modern men, and women for that matter, have a much more evolved brain than the cavemen and hopefully have the ability to show self-restraint. Are we to really believe modern men are genetically predisposed to hunt and gather new women? Pleeease spare me!!! Needless to say, I crossed him off of my dating list, but he got me thinking.
Finding someone you are attracted to is easy. Chemistry and lust are as primal as it gets. The creator’s genius was at its best when he made it feel so incredible to carry on the species, but love, that’s another story. Love requires patience and trust, honesty, communication, and self-restraint. There are more women cheating today than ever before so it stands to reason that social pressures have caused women to suppress their urges in the past. How many times do we hear the same lame excuses regarding why people, men or women, cheat? Search the internet and you’ll come up with pages of them. She doesn’t look or act the way she used to … He doesn’t understand me … She always looks for what I do wrong and never sees what I do right … the thrill is gone … I was seduced … low self-esteem … I was bored … Victim, victim, victim! Why can’t people just admit to the truth, our society encourages sexual freedom and self-indulgence. Cheating is self-gratification at it’s best! There will always be temptations, but if you are lucky enough to find someone who fits your dreams, you have to have enough strength of character to walk away from enticement.
