First of all, I can never wrap my head around the concept of ‘cheating’. You entered a relationship, willingly and declaring your undying love for your partner, yet the second that you meet someone else, instead of being responsible about it and ending your relationship with the first person before pursuing one with someone else, you decide to keep both (or more) of them.

The reason why this is so hard to comprehend is because even if the spark is no longer there and you feel like you’ll be happy with someone else (completely understandable till here) then why not just end the relationship when you feel like there’s nothing there for you anymore? Is there too much to lose? Well, by cheating, you’re losing all of that anyway along with any sense of dignity you have.

What follows are some of the classic things that men in particular have been known to say when they’re caught cheating:

1. “I don’t even know her”

Right, right, so you just happened to stumble across a dinner for two? Or did you trip and land with your arms around her? The audacity to actually say that when someone’s caught cheating is mind blowing! You need to assess the situation, what was the guy caught doing and in that case, can it be considered as cheating or is it possible that he doesn’t really know her? Sadly, quite often you’ll realise that it’s a load of crap and it would be an insult to your intelligence if you stay around him any longer.
