Getting cheated on, according to those who've been there, can be considered "less than ideal." Honestly, it's the worst kind of pain you could experience. Nothing like putting your trust in someone only for them to betray you and firmly establish your lack of faith in humanity. However, surely there must be a good reason for their infidelity, right?...Right?


Reddit user, u/Tom1316155555, wanted to hear the most ridiculous reasons you've been given for why your significant other cheated on you when they asked:

What's the dumbest excuse your girlfriend/boyfriend has used for cheating on you?

Should've Left A Note

"Remember when we talked about having an open relationship"

No I don't remember that...... at all

playswithgravity

Reminds me of the time I was in an open relationship. I just didn't know I was in an open relationship.

There's Always Hope?

"I didn't think you'd find out."

We had been together for 8 years, married for 3 months and had a young child together when this happened. We are no longer married.

How Can You Not See This Is Your Fault?

I caught her cheating on me with someone I knew. Someone I kinda figured she was seeing behind my back and had brought it up to her before.

Her defense was accusing me of being jealous so apparently I made her do it. Me being right is somehow my fault? I just...what.

Classic manipulation. It's always your fault, even when they get caught red handed.

Oh, She Got Him The Greatest Gift Of All

"It was his birthday" I sh-t you not.

...Did You Pass The Test?

"I was testing you to see if you'd stay loyal even if I cheated."

Short answer? Nope.

Long answer? NOOOOOOOOOOOOPE.

Seems Like You're Creating Your Own Awful Life

Not anyone I've dated, but a former coworker.

She'd cheat on her BF around twice a month it seemed. She'd go out with a friend to the bars, f-ck some random guy in his car, and then tell us about it at work.

Her justification: "What am I supposed to do? I'm horny and my BF isn't there. That's his fault."

She was a trash-person, so I didn't care enough to engage. But, one of the older women we worked with asked, "well, did you invite him out to the bar with you?"

Her response? "f-ck no - its a girls-night-out"

Not Sure This Is What Emily Dickinson Meant

When I caught him he he referred to a poem that I shared with him a few months prior. He said " remember 'the great, blue sky of unspecified desire' ? Remember when I agreed with that line"?

He thought we agreed to sleep with other people........ because poetry.

Edit: For everyone asking here is the poem: "How will you know the difficulties of being human, if you're always flying off to blue perfection? Where will you plant your grief-seeds? We need ground to scrape and hoe, not the sky of unspecified desire." - Rumi Yeah....I still can't see how he got ' open relationship' out this.

Information That Could Have Been Brought To My Attention YESTERDAY

"I've cheated with everyone I've ever been in a relationship with"

Why would you not tell me that before we got into a relationship??

fatshambles

...Ew.

My friend from college was fooling around during a party and his girlfriend heard it was happening, so she ran to his room and nearly broke the door down. He was busted red-handed, naked with the other girl.

In his drunken stupor, he grabbed his flaccid d-ck, waved it at his girlfriend and said, "Baby, it doesn't mean anything to me, my d-ck's not even hard!"

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
