When the Hunting Ends

We’ve always known men to be hunters. Many of them like the woman that provides some sort of chase. They don’t particularly want to spend time with the ones that are easy & thirsty. Yes they may sleep with them but those aren’t usually the ones they take home to momma.

So once he has found the woman he chooses to settle down with, in terms of them enjoying the hunt, its now over. He has caught his prey. He has a woman all his own & the chase is over so it leads me to have to ask, “is this why so many men cheat?”

You’ve captured the one you really wanted & there’s no more need to hunt so you get frisky & go out chasing the tail that’s no where near as valuable to you as what you have at home. You just have an urge to hunt. You don’t even intend to keep it, just throw it back.  I’m guessing this would be the reason we hear men say, “she didn’t mean anything”.

Men the hunt is not over because if you don’t do the work to keep the trap closed on what you have at home she will escape. You can believe that just because the chase ended for you there are still some other hunters out there trying to steal your catch.



  1. Ok, I agree with this for the most part. We men do enjoy the chase and at times I suppose some cannot end the desire to chase and wind up chasing whatever catches their eye. That is something that each man must answer for. I have been faithful for the full twenty years of my marriage as has my wife. We decided to be true because that is our commitment not only to each other but to God as it was the day we said our vows.

    • Joe, I think that’s the biggest part. I know our flesh has it’s desires but if we strive to please God first He can help us to fight against those desires and it will be possible to stay faithful. Thanks so much for your comment.

  2. I find the whole framing of your post problematic. Men are not hunters and women are not preys–we’re not living in caves anymore. Physical intercourse is one pillar in any great relationship, but it’s not the most important one–it may be third or fourth in the list of why one chooses a mate. It’s the context that sex is in that makes it great or not. If you are in a committed relationship and it’s mostly defined by physical attraction, then you are going to be in a world of hurt because sexual drive fluctuates, with peaks and valleys. The trick is to weather those low points and what gets you through them are all the other qualities one needs in a mate: mutual and self-respect, ambition, intelligence, decency, conflict resolution skills, discipline, etc. Ok sex becomes great when all the other qualities are there; great sex w/o those qualities is just mechanical and has a very short shelf life, which leads to people finding other physical partners somewhere else.

    • No we are not living in caves anymore but I do believe that men are hunters by nature. (we’ll have to agree to disagree on that one)

      So your answer leads me to believe you are saying some men may be cheating just due to physical attraction. Am I correct?

  3. Yes. I’m saying men/women who do cheat only value the physical aspect in the realationship. Those type of relationships don’t have a strong foundation to begin with or are neglected.
