Cheaters say the most absurd things. If you’ve ever had the misfortune of being cheated on, you’ve probably found yourself gobsmacked at the excuses cheaters give. Haven’t you wanted the perfect rejoinder? Wouldn’t you love to know what’s going on inside their noggins to make them spout such nonsense? Well, wonder no more. Here are dumb things cheaters say and how to respond…
1. But I loved you all along.(But it’s you I love)
It’s a common trope that cheaters “never stopped loving you.” This ability to “love” you while cheating on you is often attributed to “compartmentalization.” Yes, I loved you. But then I was able to shelve my love for you just long enough to f.uck another person. When I came home, shazam! I loved you again. Real love is about connection and respect. You have to be emotionally and spiritually disconnected from someone to be able to cheat on them.
“I don’t believe you loved me while you were cheating on me. Love and betrayal are incompatible. I don’t feel safe with that kind of ‘love.’ ”
