Part II: 7 Reasons Why A Man Would Never Know A Woman Is Cheating


Part II: 7 Reasons Why A Man Would Never Know A Woman Is Cheating

1.Women are more skilled in relationships.

This gives them a huge advantage when it comes to reading signs of infidelity or hiding their own. As John Gray points out in his bestselling book series “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus,” we are naturally more adept and more interested in people and in social interactions; men are more interested in things and in competition. According to Dr. Gray, on Venus, “everyone has at least a master’s degree in psychology” and talks endlessly about relationships, analyzing every detail of an interaction. On Mars, men are more interested in rough play and tinkering with gadgets. This makes sense, as they are the hunter-warriors, the providers and protectors. Women are the natural nurturers and community-builders. We were designed to be aware of the minutest changes in our offspring, so we can tend to their needs and ensure their health and survival. We are the nest defenders when the men are away on the hunt, so we have to be aware of the tiniest clues of imminent danger, or of anything suspicious. As the principle nurturers of our families and communities, we know when someone isn’t feeling well or when there’s tension between two people. We know instinctually when the dynamic of a relationship has changed, so we are better equipped to cover our tracks if we are the ones with something to hide.

2. Women are better at reading non-verbal cues.

This is what inspired the cliché about women’s intuition. While it’s been widely documented that women are very intuitive, perhaps more so than men, it’s our ability to pick up on physical signals and to interpret them accurately that makes us appear to be almost psychic and therefore, makes it easier for us to hide any indiscretions. To borrow a poker expression, women are better at reading “tells.” Study after study has demonstrated these differences begin at birth in our brain chemistry and continue to manifest throughout our adult lives. Studies also show that women are able to read people more accurately, and they have a greater degree of sophistication in reading subtle differences in facial expressions and body language. Researchers noted that men often confused one expression for another. For instance, a male shown a picture of a person with a neutral expression would mistake the person as being angry or worried. In another example, a woman who was shown pictures of relaxed facial expressions with very minute differences understood the distinctions accurately. This skill is enormously advantageous to covering up infidelity.

3. Women are more empathic.

Because women are the primary nurturers of the family, they are more tuned into the inner life, moods and private thoughts of others. This makes them better at being devious when it comes to understanding and anticipating their partner’s responses to their behavior. It makes women better equipped to manipulate others to do what they want and to control a situation to their design.
