The Truth Behind Infidelity: Understanding Why People Cheat in Relationships

Discover the underlying reasons why people cheat in relationships. Learn about the psychological, emotional, and social factors that contribute to infidelity and how to prevent it.

The Complexity of Infidelity

Infidelity is a complex and multifaceted issue that affects millions of relationships worldwide. It’s a sensitive topic that can evoke strong emotions and raise questions about human behavior and relationships.

The Search for Emotional Connection

One of the primary reasons people cheat is a lack of emotional connection in their relationship. When individuals feel unheard, unseen, or unappreciated, they may seek validation and attention outside their partnership. This can lead to an emotional affair, which can be just as damaging as a physical one.

Unmet Needs and Desire

Unfulfilled sexual or intimate needs can also drive individuals to cheat. When relationships become stale or neglectful of one partner’s desires, the temptation to seek excitement or novelty elsewhere can become overwhelming.

Insecurities and Low Self-Esteem

Insecurities and low self-esteem can contribute significantly to infidelity. When individuals feel inadequate or unlovable, they may seek external validation to boost their self-worth. This can lead to a pattern of seeking validation through multiple partners or affairs.

Lack of Communication and Intimacy

Poor communication and emotional disconnection can create an environment conducive to cheating. When partners neglect emotional and physical intimacy, the relationship can become vulnerable to infidelity.

External Factors and Triggers

Environmental stressors, such as work or financial pressures, can also contribute to infidelity. Additionally, social media and technology have changed the way we interact and connect, making it easier to connect with others and potentially engage in infidelity.

Prevention and Healing

Understanding the reasons behind infidelity is crucial to preventing it. By addressing the root causes and working on communication, emotional connection, and intimacy, couples can build stronger, more resilient relationships. If infidelity has already occurred, seeking professional help and support can aid in the healing process.

Conclusion: Infidelity is a complex issue with multiple underlying reasons. By understanding these factors and addressing them proactively, we can build healthier, more fulfilling relationships and prevent the pain and heartache of cheating.

The 411 on Resizing

What is ring resizing?

Ring resizing is the process of making a ring smaller or bigger to fit your ring finger and it can be done on most metals. 

The need to resize your ring may arise due to weight loss or weight gain and sometimes it’s done simply because of wanting to wear it on another finger.  

“The ring resizing process can be completed in as little as a few hours, or it can take several weeks (or anything in between). It all depends on the metal, the intricacy of the ring, and the jeweler you are working with.” Honey Co

Ring Resizing And What You Need To Know — Enji Studio Jewelry

What Metals can be resized?

  • Platinum
  • Gold
  • Sterling Silver


Platinum is a precious silvery white metal that has very recently become a popular choice for all types of jewelry.It’s extremely durable and will last forever. Platinum is also one of the most expensive metals because of its rarity and density. 


Gold rings are not always 100% pure because pure gold is too soft to shape into complex designs. It is often mixed with alloy metals to strengthen it. 

Sterling Silver

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% of silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually  copper.

Effects of Ring Resizing

When a ring is resized, the place where it was cut and then soldered (a joining process used to join different types of metals together by melting a metal alloy) becomes weak. It doesn’t help that these cuts are made from the bottom part of the ring, which is usually subject to the most stress. 

And if you exert pressure on the place where the ring is soldered it can bend or break, however, if the resizing is done well the risk is minimized.

In some cases, when the jeweler has not soldered the ring back together with care when resizing, the joint will be more likely to break in the future.

We do not currently offer the resizing service, however we do have ring adjusters in-store to help adjust the size of a bigger ring. Please ask us and we’ll be happy to send you one. They are K230 inclusive of delivery.

Your Guide To Metal Sensitivity

Metal sensitivity is considered a disorder of the immune system where the skin is irritated by metals like jewellery,. It is a common condition that affects 10% to 15% of the population. It can produce a variety of symptoms, including rashes, swelling, or pain due to contact with certain metals (

The most common metal people are allergic to is nickel. Nickel is a natural hard, silvery-white metal, and it is often mixed with other metals.  Contact with jewellery containing nickel causes an itchy rash and possibly blisters at the site of contact. The skin reacts when it has been exposed for a period of 24 hours or more, especially with rings. 


What metals are safe if you have sensitive skin?

1.Sterling Silver 

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper.  Pure sterling silver is too soft to mold into complex jewellery designs. Sterling silver is an affordable precious metal, it is durable and is usually 100% hypoallergenic metal. In some instances, nickel can be one of the components in sterling silver so when making a purchase ensure to ask if the item is nickel free. All our sterling silver rings are nickel free.

6 Secrets to a Successful Surprise Proposal

In order to pull off a successful surprise proposal, you first need to find out her ring size.

Here are some tips:

1. If your girlfriend regularly wears rings on her ring finger, see if you can sneak in to her jewellery box and pinch one to take to the jewellers to get it sized.

2. Get a piece of paper and when she isn’t home trace round the inside of her ring so the jeweller can get an idea of her size.

3. Ask your friends or family to do a bit of digging, or find out your girlfriends ring size for you.

4. Treat her to a day out with friends and make sure they take her to a jewellery store to browse and eventually find out her ring size and let you know discreetly.

5. Buy a ring sizer and when your partner is fast asleep gently measure her ring finger, if she is a light sleeper this might not be the best option for you but if she sleeps like a log you should be able to take her size without her ever knowing!

6. Sometimes it’s hard to find out her ring size, she may catch on to what you are up to and ruin the surprise! So, if all else fails there is always one important rule to follow – go bigger. It’s easier for a jeweller to make a ring smaller than to make it bigger, there is more material for them to work with so when guessing a size it’s always playing it safe to get the next size up rather than one down.

7. You’ll also need to plan the proposal, if you want an elaborate proposal and need help we provide a Decor Proposal Service inclusive of Photography – for more information 0974583423
