Cheating has been a common trend nowadays in many relationships. What normally hurts is the pain that comes with a break up after cheating.
The emotional and physical pain are what usually negatively affects the partners in the long run. However, studies reveal that in a case where cheating occurs in a relationship, the woman stands to grow stronger emotionally and physically than the man.
According to Sari Cooper, sex therapist, women benefit more than the man after a breakup. Studies also show that a woman who is cheated on will go through a period of post-relationship grief and betrayal but benefit emotionally in the long run.
The following are examples of how women benefit from falling victims of cheating.
They develop higher mating intelligence
Despite the pain and suffering any woman would go through, they will come out of the experience with higher mating intelligence that allows them to better detect cues in future mates that may indicate low mate value.
They will, therefore, be in a position to detect any signs of an unfaithful partner. They are more attuned to cues of infidelity in a future mate.
They achieve emotional self-growth
It helps women ultimately grow from the experience and learn to choose better mates in future. So while it may hurt at the moment, as betrayal can be painful emotionally and physically- the overall outcome is often self-growth.
The woman grows emotionally stronger and can hence deal with such cases in future.
Women develop emotional intelligence and higher self-confidence
Women who get cheated on develops emotional intelligence that helps them in decision-making in such future cases. They also grow their self-confidence and self-awareness in dating.
They develop 'low mate value' detection skills
Such skills help women a lot as their next partner is likely to treat them a lot better in response to it.
Therefore, whatever the kind of break up, the lady normally gains more than the man.
