Women Are More Superficial Than Men

That awkward moment when you realize you can do better.

I was less than surprised by these findings, since I said women were more superficial than men in 2011, but no one ever listens to WisdomIsMisery. Oh well. Enough about me and my constant need for validation and congratulation.

Next time your guy heads off to Vegas or a bachelor party and you get that brief, sinking worry that he may end up making out with a random chick, let the results of a new survey calm your nerves: If he does touch tongues with someone else, she’ll at least be uglier than you.

A new poll of over 4,000 people who belong to infidelity site Victoria Milan found that the majority of men and women find their significant others more attractive than the people they cheat with. In fact, only 30 percent of cheating men said they have mistresses who are younger than their current partners, only 26 percent said their mistresses are more interesting, and only 25 percent said their mistresses are in better shape. These other women, however, are more caring, better listeners, and more passionate (as in, they’re more down with having the sex) than the ladies they’re in relationships with.

As for women, over sixty percent of cheating ladies said their partners are more attractive than their lovers, however 50 percent reported that their boytoys are in better shape. (So, yeah, we’re actually shallower than men, it seems.)

    this isn't saying "women are more superficial"…its saying that "cheating" women are more prone to cheat up vs guys that will cheat down. Its a very specific group of people.

    The title should say "Cheating Women More Superficial Than Cheating Men" and not be so sensationalized, lol.

      WTF is cheating up? Up based on what quality? The men that cheat with better understanding women are cheating up then.

        seeing as the article is about "superficial" qualities, cheating "up" was implied to mean cheating with someone that has better physical qualities than their current significant other. Being "better understanding" isn't a physical or superficial quality.

        You may cheat on Halle Berry with a woman that has a much better personality you can relate to, but if she happens to look like Killer Mike in a wig…I wont speak for everybody but, that's cheating down by MOST standards. However, the actual "up" or "down" quality of physical looks, is in the eye of the cheater.

    cheating women look to upgrade, cheating men look to complement. Most sidechicks give the guy what he doesnt feel hes getting from his girl, while women who cheat are usually done with the relationship period but try to make the smootheest transition possible…thats not necessarily superficiality thats strategy.

    for the record tho, women ARE more superficial than men.

    I just don't understand cheating. If you are going to step out she should be wayyy better than what you got at home, not just one thing is better. So f**k it, yep we are superficial and if for some odd reason I cheat, he is going to look like a ray of sunshine dancing on my face…..yep that was just said.

    Ehh, women have more of an opportunity to "cheat up" then men do because cheating usually entails casual sex. Women clearly are more prone to have casual sex with better looking men. Men are more prone to have casual sex with less attractive women.

    I would have to agree about being superficial because I have most def been there and done that. I think that is part of the reason that I am single today. http://thesexysinglemommy.net/2013/09/superficial
