    People want it all, and can be full of lust. Often, these types are not honest with themselves, and their relationships. If there are needs not being met, they should discuss these things before cheating. They should not settle down with someone, if they are not ready to be faithful, and not cheat. People want to get away with things, sometimes, and maybe feel a sense of power in that. It is being very very risky, and a form of gambling in my opinion. They are taking a gamble of not being found out, but still would rather cheat than to fulfill their desires. They don't care about the person they are cheating on as much as they profess, bottom line. To fullfill all kinds of desires, is the goal, no matter what the cost. Ultimate selfishness.

    Cheating is the most stupid thing you can do, besides robbing and other illigal things. Cheaters never win. Why? Because, if you cheat that means you are way too competitive, or it is that you belive you will lose and you try to cheat to win. The goal for a cheater is to win and get all the glory. IF you vote me as best answer, please answer the following question:

    Do you cheat, and why? If you asked the question you asked, it would not sound like you are one.

    Hope it Helps!

    Obviously they HAVE no goals, that's why they are sucking the energy out of other people. Cheats are also liars, if you think about it, they would HAVE to be, to back up their cheating. Associate w/ a better class of ppl.

    there isn't a goal *unless ur cruel and revengeful* i think that when some people cheat they're hoping to find something that they haven't found yet. and other cheater's cheat for what seems like no reason at all.

    Depends on what kind of cheating you are talking about. There are as many different goals as there are people... that's impossible to answer.

    the goal is usually the same,,personal gain.

    For many, it's the thrill of doing something naughty, of pursuing a taboo that they know will have dire consequences if caught.
