People say cheating is bad, one of the worst things someone could do. But there’s probably a reason your girl found someone else to give her what she wants.

She probably wanted to stay loyal. She wanted things to work with you guys. But maybe, just maybe you didn’t hold up your end of the bargain. Did you ever think of that?

It’s not rocket science here, pal. You found a great catch, you lured her in, and you didn’t succeed at keeping her on board. You assumed your job was done after you caught her. Jokes on you, that’s not how it works.

Maybe she got tired of coming home from a long day at work to you sleeping on the couch, surrounded by the mess that was there when she left that morning.

Maybe she got tired of you going to bed just as she was getting up for work. You slept the day away and did nothing productive at night except for playing video games and looking at porn on the internet.

Maybe she was tired of you being gone all the time and never taking her feelings into consideration for anything.

Maybe she got tired of feeling like your mother. Cleaning, cooking, laundry, supporting you, all while you took it for granted. She never gave birth but she had a man child to take care of.

Are you really that surprised that you couldn’t keep her?

She didn’t just suddenly decide to cheat. This didn’t come out of nowhere and you know it. She was probably lonely even with you in the room because you ignored every advance she tried to make towards you.

All of your wants and needs came first didn’t they? When was the last time you actually told her she was appreciated? Did you appreciate her or did you just like the fact that you didn’t actually have to act like a grown up with her around?

Did you tell her she was beautiful? Did you tell her she was loved? Or did you think that one time last month when you told her that her ass looked nice was enough to hold her over for a while?
