“It meant nothing.”

This is one of the rudest, but most common things a cheater can tell you. While the cheating may not have meant anything to them, it definitely meant something to you. A person who can say this is clearly not willing to be held accountable for their actions. Yes, there may not have been any romantic feelings or an emotional connection between your spouse and that other person, but that doesn’t mean that the cheating didn’t happen. When they say this, they are unwilling to take your emotions into consideration. In those moments, they are more concerned about their desires than yours.

A cheater often cheats because they actually believe their own lies. Once pride gets involved, things can really begin to quickly unravel. These eight lies are generally told so the cheating can be rationalized. Believing these lies is not only common but also essential for a cheater. Beware.
