Some years back I wouldn’t have lifted a brow if I found out that a guy who was trying to get in my pants had a girlfriend.
Today, I found myself all crazy, going, “I cannot believe it! He has a girlfriend!! OMG I feel sick in the stomach!”
I sat Jenna down, whined about how I found out that Logan used to F a mutual friend and has a girlfriend back in Germany. I then proceeded to go on and on about how I stalked Lance’s social media and found out he too has a girlfriend.
Jenna listened patiently with no expression whatsoever. When I was done, she asked, “So what’s the problem exactly?”
OK, so clearly my brains have gotten a little wuzzy from being single.
It seems I cannot begin to understand why these hot, successful men who were Godlike in the sack would commit to a relationship when they are clearly F-ing every other woman off the street?
Why don’t they just remain single and F around guilt-free?
Then I thought harder.
I once did it too and for me, there are several reasons why I cheated on all my boyfriends.
THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT SYNDROME
That feeling when you go all, “I really shouldn’t be doing this. But.. it feels so good! OMG This is so wrong, but it feels so right!”
I reckon this is one of the main reasons why people cheat, or at least me. The adrenaline. The guilt. The passion.
BECAUSE I CAN
You know your other half trusts you a 101% and you take it for granted. Or because he/she lives in another country/town, is constantly travelling on business trips or that you only see one another at specific times.
You know you would never get caught.
I WANT THEM ALL
Lust. His gorgeous eyes, luscious lips… Oh, you just know you want a taste of it. And and… getting pounded by that hot piece of meat? You know your juices are flowing just thinking of it.
Would you really say no? What if it was a once in a lifetime experience?
More often than not, after being in a relationship for too long, even date nights become a routine and the flame that once held the relationship together dies.
Need I say more? We seek that fiery passion elsewhere cause back home, it only exist within our memories.
GUARANTEED NO STRINGS ATTACHED
You could have a full-blown fling, a fake relationship and yet you know that at the end of the day, nothing would blossom.
Why? Because you already have someone to go home to and nobody wants a real relationship with a known cheater!
SOMEONE TO GO HOME TO
After all the fun and acting as if you’re single when you clearly are not, at the end of the day… or week… or months, there is still that special someone whom you know will always be there for you through your ups and downs. That someone who you know you can count on for some TLC because we all know damn well that these asswipes we’re F-ing behind our significant other’s back would never give a flying F about you.
And to end the list, the reason for cheating from the men’s perspective;
Let’s say I love chocolate cake and I always have a piece at home. But every now and then, I’d head to the mall, look around and perhaps spot a tiramisu. If it isn’t too much hassle, I wouldn’t mind having a piece of that. But if I’ve gotta wait too long or pay too much for the tiramisu, I might as well have that piece of cheese cake that’s going for half the price. At the end of the day, I still love chocolate cakes – Kyle (my bestie’s fiance)
VERDICT: Being promiscuous in a relationship is bad, but it is a whole different level of fun! Not something I’d encourage though. Cheating is like Pringles; Once you pop, you can’t stop!
