Why Women Steal Boyfriends
Low Self-Esteem Can Contribute To A Woman's Desire For Someone Else's Man
A homewrecker doesn't do it for the home, she does it for the wrecking. For all the ladies out there who've had a man stolen right from under them by a conniving woman (or for those who've BEEN that woman), here's why it can be so tempting.
Whether you're Jennifer Aniston and you've been left in the dust or you're Angelina Jolie and you like plucking men from other relationships, chances are you have encountered some form of "mate poaching."
But why do they do it? What makes an attached man more attractive to some women? Pulling from studies and expert opinion, our friends at YourTango.com may have found an answer. Here are some motivations behind partner pilfering:
Sex Addiction - When someone's need for physical contact overrides their sense of morality (and maybe even the law), they need professional help. This means they may want to stop stealing men, but their addiction to sex won't let them.
Low Self-Esteem - Some people just want what they can't have. This is usually because of a low sense of self-worth, the feeling that you're not good enough to be the wife or husband. And that leaves them desperate to get validation.
