If you’re desperate (or crazy, or Yoruba) enough to cheat on your partner, you need to realize that cheating is a high risk activity that can go south very easily. When you (almost inevitably) get caught, here are some excuses you can give to get yourself out of the situation.
If none of the excuses in the article work, just start begging.
1. “It was the devil”
This one isn’t even that much of an excuse; it’s a fact. The devil made you cheat. If it were up to you, you would not have lied to your girlfriend that you were playing FIFA at Bayo’s place while you were clapping cheeks at Sandra’s. The devil is a liar and he made you do it. Blame him. You just might get forgiven.
2. “It was a mistake”
You were on your own jogging on Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge, maintaining fitness just as you wrote in your new year’s resolution when you tripped and fell and started rolling uncontrollably until you got into another person’s bed.
3. “I thought we were in an open relationship”
Remind her of that time when she said: “Oh my God, RMD is so hot and sexy”. If she was calling another man hot with her chest, it means she was definitely sleeping with other men which means the relationship was open enough for you to do whatever you wanted. The blame isn’t on you for this one.
4. “You didn’t tell me I couldn’t cheat”
Tell your partner to bring out receipts from when they categorically told you that cheating wasn’t allowed in the relationship. If they can’t find any, then they don’t have a case.
5. “I was trying to be a good friend”
Explain that the person you cheated with was going through some emotional burden and you were just being there and providing everything they needed. A friend in need is a friend indeed.
6. “I couldn’t resist”
Use this when you cheat on your partner with your ex. It would make sense that you can’t resist because they have some sort of hold over you.
7. “It’s not what it looks like”
This is the go-to thing to say if you get caught. Just say it first and then start thinking of other things to say after.
