Hollywood likes to dazzle up the idea of infidelity for one simple reason; sex sells. However, unlike what we see on the big screen, cheating can happen in any relationship and its impact lasts much longer than a 90-minute movie.
Sometimes affairs are for love and other times, it’s really just about the sex. Some couple stay together after cheating but others can’t handle the situation and call it quits. Well, there’s no one reason for why a partner cheats. Knowing how to keep your man from cheating does help.
If you’re interested in learning how to keep your man faithful, then keep reading because I’m about to share with you nine proven tips that can keep your relationship on the right track.
1. Have open communication.
To keep your man faithful, it’s important that you talk to one another honestly and openly. This doesn’t mean the typical, “how was your day?” or ”what would you like to do this weekend?” questions but rather, talk about your feelings, expectations, desires, dislikes, the whole works.
Giving your man an outlet where he can vent free of judgment is a great way to keep him faithful because it gives them something no one else can.
Since men tend to hold on their emotions much more than women, being the person he can confide in makes you an important part of his life, one that he wouldn’t risk losing over an affair.
2. Set standards.
This one may seem a bit strange but having a talk with your guy about what he considers cheating is a great way to prevent it. Now, you may be thinking, “But Amy, isn’t this pretty obvious what cheating is?”
Well, believe it or not, it’s not always the case. What one person classifies as cheating, another may think it’s just playful or foolish behavior.
There are a lot of grey areas and a couple must establish what is fair game.
For instance, flirting, kissing, porn, giving out your number, the list goes on and on. Make time to set some standards and you’ll have much less to worry about.
3. Appreciate your partner.
As you may or may not know, guys crave appreciation. So much so that studies have shown that men would rather be respected than loved.
A major part of keeping your man faithful is appreciating him by telling him how great he is, what a good job he has done and how much you admire him. He’ll be much less likely to go looking for praise elsewhere.
On the other hand, if you and your man fight constantly, if you belittle him, insult him, put down his ideas or opinions, then it will only be a matter of time before he looks for love elsewhere.
To avoid infidelity, take time to appreciate your man every day and tell him how much he means to you because if you don’t, someone else might.

4. Be intimate.
It’s no secret that men love sex. They think about it. They’re turned on by it. Simply put, they love it. And since sex is such a big part of their everyday life, it’s important that you make it a part of your relationship too.
Women who keep their sex life spicy, keep their men faithful. Now, don’t get me wrong. This doesn’t mean that you have to do it all the time or try things that make you uncomfortable. Rather, that you’re passionate with your guy. This means kissing on a regular basis, touching, cuddling, and openly talking about sex.
That said, a great way to prevent cheating in your relationship is by fulfilling your man’s sexual desires and being open to new ideas. Your guy’s fantasies might not sound appealing but if you give them a shot, he’ll not only appreciate it but you’ll be filling a role which will prevent him from looking elsewhere too. Besides, you just might like these tricks too.
5. Be romantic.
It only takes a small gesture to be romantic and show your man that you care about him. For instance, you could have surprised him with a case of his favorite beer, make him dinner after a long day of work, or offer him a back rub before bed. These may seem like small actions but they speak volumes when it comes to cheat-proofing your relationship.
If the romance has been put aside because of personal insecurities, complimenting your partner regularly will boost his self-esteem and may also help him become more romantic and open.
It has been proven that when both partners feel good about themselves and the relationship, the chances of either of them looking for romance elsewhere lessens.
6. Avoid jealousy.
In most relationships, there will come a time when you suspect your partner’s attention maybe drifting elsewhere. As tough as it may be to keep your cool, it’s important not to get angry at him or the person he’s giving attention to. In fact, doing so could push him further away.
Jealousy is natural but it’s also toxic and usually leads to self-pity and anger.
To get your man’s gaze back on you, step up your game and focus on wooing him rather than threatening to leave or becoming critical. Positivity works better than guilt and threats when it comes to securing your man’s commitment.
7. Do things together.
There’s only one way to make cheating impossible, and that’s by removing opportunity. That said, unless you’re with your man every minute of every day— which you shouldn’t be— it’s not possible to remove all those chances.
However, you can limit opportunity. Since cheating typically occurs in situations where you are not present, it’s important to pay attention to his actions.
For instance, if you notice that your man is going out drinking with co-workers more often than usual, then ask him to take a walk or mention it to him. Instead of sitting back and thinking, “Well, it was me,” make an effort to do things together so that other women don’t have as much access into your guy’s life.
8. Focus on commitment.
The truth is, humans are not biologically wired for monogamy. What makes matters worse is that there are many forces that drive people to cheat. Why would your guy stay true to you? The benefits of commitment, that’s why.
By reminding your man of all the perks of being in a committed relationship with you, you can prevent him from cheating or at least lessen the likeliness of him doing so.
Show your guy that he has someone who knows him better than anyone else and remind him of the many loving memories you’ve shared together. Let him know that he can rely on you.
Oftentimes, these reminders alone are enough to prevent cheating.
Keep in mind that actions speak louder than words. Rather than rambling on about how great you are together, show him. You will come across so much less needy and it will be more effective.
9. Be an awesome partner.
The best defense against cheating is a great relationship. When your man’s needs are met physical and emotionally, he would not have as much interest in looking elsewhere. To do this, ask yourself how well you meet your partner’s needs and make an effort to step up in the areas that are quick.
She’ll always be his number-one, go-to person. I you’re not there for him, he may go looking elsewhere.
