Cheating is a complicated business. Sometimes, the relationship is falling apart or one person isn't getting their needs met, but other times, it's not always easy to get to the bottom of what makes someone cheat. And plenty of the time, someone who cheats is looking for an emotional connection as much as they are a physical one.
In fact, it looks like a lot of people who have cheated wish that their affairs had gone a little differently. Ashley Madison, the extra-marital affairs website, recently shared a survey of 1,369 members with Bustle that discovered 53 percent of cheaters wished they had approached their affairs a differently. Although, interestingly, the survey doesn't look at how many people (if any) wished they hadn't had one at all.
What do Ashley Madison members wish that they had done differently? Well, a lot of the regrets, perhaps unsurprisingly, revolved around wishing they had put a lot more thought into their infidelity before they just jumped right in. Here's what the survey found.
