People Share The Worst Justifications For Cheating On Their Significant Other

Y'all grab yourselves a bottle of whatever and a cookie. Some people will use any reason and I mean... ANY reason to dabble outside of a relationship. FYI... there is no viable excuse to betray your significant other but... I'm listening! But BYE FELICIA!!

Redditor FuschiaDinosaur wondered What's the worst excuse you've heard to justify cheating?

YOUR MEMORY NEEDS A BEAT DOWN.

"You weren't around and she reminded me of you so you should feel flattered"

THEN JSUT SAY SEX ONLY! NO JUDGEMENT.

"I'm young and don't want to be tied down to somebody".

That's fine, but instead of cheating on somebody who thinks you actually care about them, specify that you're not looking for anything serious to begin with.

OH PLEASE!

"I felt like I wasn't good enough for you"

PARDON ME CRAZY?

"Just because you've made me so happy, happier than any other guy, doesn't mean I should stay with you any longer."

ACCIDENTS "DON'T" HAPPEN!!

"It was an accident."

Moron. You don't just get naked, crawl into bed, and screw five or six times.

I'M GOING TO PUNCH YOU! LOL

"I relapsed." Lol right. Turns out she relapsed a lot.

STICK WITH THE CLASSICS.

"One thing led to another"

STOP BLAMING YOUR PARENTS!

My dad did it and its in my genes.

MAYBE TALK TO YOUR PARTNER? DUH!

Buddy to me -"Dude... I just can't do my wife like I do my girlfriend. I respect my wife too much to do that."

SERIOUSLY?

"I didn't think the Konami code would work irl."

AHHH THE CLASSICS PART 2.

"I was really drunk"

SO IT'S ME. SORRY? YOU... $#$$%^^%$#$%

"You were depressed." Gee well now I'm over the moon.

GOOD FOR YOU. BYE!

I had the opportunity to.... So I took it.

WELL LET ME GET MY PASSPORT!!

"I was in a totally different country."

MY FAVORITE!!!

We were on a break!!

DON'T BE A TAYLOR SWIFT SONG.

Girlfriend's ex-roommate was notorious for this:

"My ex cheated on me."

"I'm a different person now."

"Practically broken up." After she slept with her now former bestie's soon-to-be ex and said bestie asked her to tell the truth.

"We're not that serious or in love."

"I don't see it going anywhere, you guys wouldn't understand." After we asked her why she was sleeping with another guy when she was still in a committed relationship.

Bonus points for gf's mom outing her cheating in front of him by accident, while he was about to help move her (the cheater's) stuff to another city.

WHO AM I? WHERE AM I?

"That's not who I am, I am going through a ton of stuffright now, so I wasn't myself". Wtf does that have to do with anything?

SOME PEOPLE NEED TO A GOOD SMACK!!! OR SIX!

"Yes I have been cheating on my boyfriend, but look at him, he is too ugly to be loved. So I told him either he accepts that I will have sex with other people, or I will dump him and he will never have a girlfriend again."

And that was the moment I realized I was no longer friends with her.

For the record, he broke with her two years later but only after she took a lot of money from his disability checks. He is dating a much nicer (and beautiful) girl now.

SORRY... IT'S YOU!

"You're obviously not doing something right."

BEAT YOU!!! I WIN?

"I think he might cheat since we're long distance until (two months from that day). If he cheats on me, I'll be devastated. So I want to cheat on him first. That way if he ever tells me he cheated on me during this time, I can tell him I cheated first to piss him off. I mean he might not cheat, but if he does, I need to be able to tell him I cheated first."

IT'S OK... I'LL STRANGLE YOU WITH MY SHOELACES!

"I tripped!"

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
