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.

Eye For An Eye Leaves Everyone Blind

"I thought you were cheating on me, so I got revenge!"

Oh, She Got Him The Greatest Gift Of All

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

Weinertotheface

But she didn't get him a gift

...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!"

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
