Thinking About Cheating? 12 Reasons Why You Should

Labeling your significant other as boyfriend or girlfriend universally communicates commitment. The things shared in a two person, romantic relationship are revered as special, deep and private. Why bother with labels or talk of commitment if you are going to cheat?

You may have a conscience that you can defy, but the end result is that you’ve disrespected and dishonored the other person – a person who wants a commitment and relationship where only the two of you share certain acts, words, and moments.

At what point does self-gratification — even if you can manage to bypass the psychological waves of guilt — outweigh respect for the other person’s feelings, wants and needs of a committed relationship?

They may not know what you have done, but now two other people do, and a sorry opinion of the one cheated on will be formed by both. The one cheated on will be seen as having been played for the fool.

  1. Men who think they’re so attractive cheat. They feel like it adds a length to their thing whenever they cheat. Too bad, because no it doesn’t.

    Excitement really dies. Eventually you’ll get bored of the thrill and what has become of that new found relationship of yours? Nothing.😇

    I saw on my newsfeed once about the ad in the billboard when her husband cheated. Kinda thought it was real but that was funny af.

    I’ve heard it so many times that men who cheat will blame their partners for their inadequacy. If there’s anyone who’s inadequate, it’s the man who decided to cheat just because of petty reasons. Heard this a lot before and I’ve met men who are worse than the other. Men who want to cheat will find reason in their partners so that they can continue to keep on cheating. I pity those women who get victimized by them because there are times that they would blame themselves.

    OMG at that photo of the guy who has a tarpaulin hanging on his neck about cheating. That is so funny 🤣 CLASSIC!!!

  6. Maggie French

    Men sometimes argue that cheating is subjective and I’m like… 😒😒😒

  7. Eula Cox

    I’m so glad I found a guy who cheated before but completely changed. I know some of you might say that I should watch out, but I know for sure that he’s changed.

      Lucky for you, because most women have to deal with cheaters who won’t stop.

    How can they have the opportunity to heal when they won’t stop cheating? It becomes an unending cycle.

    Other idiots would often argue that as long as they’re not having sex with the other woman, it’s not cheating. They would often say that chatting with someone is not cheating because it “doesn’t mean anything”. Cheating starts the moment you stray and you invest your emotions to other women other than your partner. Cheating is cheating guys. I don’t care what your definition is but when it’s not right, it’s not right. Keep your thingies inside your pants!

    Had a lot of boyfriends who were cheaters and it’s confirmed that they really have unsatiated insecurities. I don’t think they should be insecure, but they are.
