Cheaters of Reddit reveal their dirty secrets
Cheating is as old as time. There are different views on the subject, but when it happens people just want to know why. Wouldn’t it just be easier to end the relationship? Is it insecurity? Do people want to have their cake and eat it too? Are we really just slaves to our basest instincts?
Thankfully, Reddit users weighed in on why they chose to cheat instead of breaking up. Check out these excuses!
I’m not proud of it, but it was loneliness coupled with depression. She was away for a few weeks and I was a bit isolated somewhere I didn’t really know anyone, had no-one to talk to, etc. So kinda hooked up with someone as much out of desperation for the conversation as for the physical side.

Being physical with someone is a positive reinforcement for my ego. (29thsept2016)
I cheated to end the relationship. I was married, and the last two years of it were sexually and wholly unsupportive. I cheated to hurt him so bad he would understand that yes, we are over. I had to pack up and move over 100 miles away when he was at work one day and give zero trace as to where I went. 2 years later when attempting to serve him for divorce (he had stalked me, so I waited because I didn’t want to get stalked again) he still considered us to be “working it out.” I was looking for an out of a bad relationship, now I just avoid unhealthy relationships.
