Relationship comes and relationship goes.

Who will find true love in relationship? Nobody knows

But one thing I am most certain about is relationship cheaters

Having their cake and eat it whole, with another on the side, dirty little sneakers.

10 Things People Say When Caught Cheating

Well, I hope you enjoyed my little funny poem their up top. But let's get to the meat of the matter when we talk about relationships. Some relationships will work and some will flop. Some will come to a bitter end while a few will last a lifetime. But what causes many relationships to break apart is the unfairness of one partner in wanting to have a mate here and there when he/she feels like. When you decide on going into a relationship, there is an understanding that both partners will remain committed to each other. This commitment is not just ensuring that you pick up him or her up from work in your smoking, stalling run down pickup. But it means that sex and other deeper emotional feelings are reserved for your partner and your partner only. But, people are people and they do bad things. Things such as cheating and smashing their partner’s naive caring heart into tiny glass fragments. Then when they get caught the come up with some of the most HUH! Excuses as to why they did it. Well, here is my list of the most stupid excuses I have heard why people say they cheated.

1. It was an Accident/Mistake

Hold on there just a minute you cheater. Let us consult what an accident is according to the good old dictionary. An Accident: 'An unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, typically resulting in damage or injury.' That my good friend is what an accident means. Cheating is never an accident, it is an intent. When people decide to cheat, they have to layout some kind of platform which allows them to commit the act. Remember, cheating doesn't begin when you actually sleep with the person. Cheating begins from the first initial intent such as exchanging numbers, chatting online and meeting in places. So no, there is no accident happening when someone cheats. If that was the case, many of us would probably have had our relationship insured with the General.

2. They Were Drunk

Oh come on now. This has to be one of the more stupid excuses as to why they cheated. If you are drunk and leave out with some guy or girl. Chances are you may not have cheat but have been purely victimized. But having a glass of wine or a light beer and then end up skinny dipping in some hot lovers bathtub is nothing short of cheating. A person who drinks too much will scream to be taken to their own home fully dressed. While a person who drinks too much and want to cheat will go home with the next available piece of flesh. So being drunk in my book is no excuse for cheating.

3. God Told Them To

Some cheating partners will go to Atlantis on beyond under the firmament to come up with some of the most ridiculous excuse as to why they cheated. You know your partner is the devil incarnate and has never set foot in a church since Uncle Bob's funeral. As a matter of fact, the Devil has set aside a special place someplace down below for when he/she passes on. Then all of a sudden a lightning bolt of righteousness and God consciousnesses overcomes them. Oh yes, God told you to cheat. Very pathetic. I am sure that baby Jesus was already born and you are probably not the next candidate in line to spawn a next messiah.

4. They Were Mad At You

Say what!? I never knew that when your partner gets upset or mad at you that was a passport to do a bit of bed hopping? The dumbest cheating excuse, "I was so mad at you I didn't know what came over me." Can you imagine if when everyone in the world, including world leaders getting mad at their partner or a next country for that matter, they just go out and cheat? What a happy world we would live in. You would have world leaders having bastard children here there and everywhere. If America had a disagreement with the Africa and both countries got mad, cheating would calm them down. Don't take being so mad at you as an excuse for your partner cheating. Mad people go 12 rounds in the ring. Mad people kiss cobras and breathe fire. Sex is the last thought in an angry persons mind.

5. The Relationship Wasn't Working Out

My good readers, if you are in a relationship that is not working out the first thing you should do is to simply tell your partner how you feel. End the relationship in a amicable fashion instead of surprising your partner with a new partner sweating out his/her bed. That is just totally disrespectful. Millions of relationship will never work out, but that doesn't mean that a million of these people have to cheat. Come on now, a broken relationship should be mended if possible. If not, separate gently.

6. It Wasn't Me

Video surveillance does not lie. Keep singing that tune and you may end up getting a recording deal with Jamaican DJ Shaggy. Some people just don't know when or how to admit to wrongs and will simply continue to deny the allegations even when their faces are plastered all over their cheating partners bed. The denial cheater will sing on it wasn't me so much until his/her partner may just end up believing that person. After all, everyone has a doppelganger right?

7. My Sexual Desires Weren't Being Met

Now isn't this person Sobolious (Not a Real Word, just sounds cool to use)? I would have advised you to smack the individual over the head with a frying pan but that would be violent and quite painful for that person so that is not an option. Relationships work on a vast amount of things. Two of the more importance in my book is Sex and Communication. You are in a relationship to love and satisfy each other’s needs. If your bedroom desires are not being met, speak with your partner and both of you work out a solution. Don't hop into the next available individual and use this stupid excuse for cheating.

8. You Have No Respect For Me

What on God's flat earth are these people saying? They felt disrespected so in order to gain back the respect they do a bit of bed hopping? News flash! You will never get back respect from your partner if you cheat. Respect has to be something naturally earned. And as one adult to another it should be common consensus that respect in any relationship is a must. If you believe your partner is in fact disrespectful, it is best to first sit and talk about it so the wrong can be righted. If you have given several chances and see no improvement then it is definitely time to choose another road. But never use disrespect as a chance to cheat.

9. I Was Bored

Can you believe the nerve of this partner telling you the reason for cheating is boredom? Bored people go out to the movies, they go watch a match, they play video games, they start a project, they help catch alligators. Bored people do not end up in someone else's bed puffing on cigarettes with a broad smile on their faces. You have no excuse for your cheating and should definitely be kicked to the curb immediately.

10. They Were Forced To Cheat

Get the hell outta here! You were forced to cheat. This is not only a stupid excuse for cheating, it probably is one of the lamest. So basically the person was held up by some weapon and the aggregator whispered in their ear, "Hey you. You had better cheat on your spouse because I will be forcing you to do it again." We know that people can be influential when it comes on to getting things they want from other people, but there is a line that should always be drawn in every situation. No one can force you to go bed with them if you never really wanted to in the first place. This my friend is a very dumb cheating excuse.

Have you ever been caught cheating?

A Little Bit of Relationship Wisdom

There is really no excuse to cheat or be caught cheating. If your relationship is in shambles and totally beyond repair, the best thing to do is simply move one. Yes, there will be tears, bitterness and anguish, but moving out of that negative energy is the best thing you could do for yourself. Life is a circle and love has no one direction. Remember that you cannot cheat if you are not in a relationship with someone else.

      I agree these are stupid things to say.

      However I also believe asking (why) they cheated is stupid!

      Lets face it there is no answer a cheater could give the betrayed person that would cause them to say:

      "Oh, now I see why you did that. It makes sense to me."

      The truth of the matter most people ask (why) without really caring why! Essentially it's a {rhetorical/reflex question} in which no answer given could possibly satisfy them. So why ask why?

      If cheating is a "deal breaker" for you then you're going to leave no matter what "reason or excuse" they give you.

      The only logical reason for asking (why) in my opinion is if the betrayed person {is trying to find a reason to stay} in the relationship. They want something to "hold on to" and if it's something (they can fix) they will strive to do so and forgive.

      Both monogamy and cheating are (choices) an individual makes. Cheating is a selfish attempt to have it all.

      The goal of most cheaters is hold onto all that is "good" in their primary relationship while addressing their other "needs" on the side. They want to (compliment) what they already have.

      Very few cheaters are looking to (replace) one relationship with another. Whatever they deem to be "missing" does not rise to the level of being a "deal breaker" for them.

      If it did they would have filed for divorce or broke up with you.

      One man's opinion! :)
