If you watch the Lifetime TV Network, or have had a conversation with a single woman lately you probably think men are all no good dogs.  Especially the Alpha male who is rich powerful, and has everything going for them.  You will hear women spin tales of these type of men leaving them crushed and heartbroken without as much as a thought to the pain they have inflicted.

There are two sides to every story, and if you thought about things objectively for a bit you would clearly see that not all men are like that.  A study even found that powerful women are just as likely to cheat as men, so that debunks all this media attention that guys are the only bad ones in relationships.

Self-confidence gained from a high-level job is the main link to unfaithfulness, not stress or potential risk, psychologists found.  Which means that cheating and being unfaithful is a HUMAN trait, and not just one reserved for men.

“Men are all no good dogs”

An online survey of 1,561 professionals revealed higher-level managers had the same desire for infidelity and likelihood of previous affairs, regardless of gender.  It boils down to the simple fact that when a person gets in a position of power they feel like they are untouchable, and thus have no qualms about cheating because they can just find someone else.

Professor Joris Lammers, of Tilburg University, the Netherlands, said: “People often assume that powerful men may be more likely to cheat. We found little correlation.”  So the next time you hear a woman say that all men are dogs, then tell her that women are just as likely to cheat as men.  It’s all about status, which would seem to indicate someone who is not in a position of power is less likely to cheat.
