Everyone Makes Mistakes: Why Cheating Should Be Forgiven

I’m going to get right to the point here. Cheating is perfectly fine. In fact, as long as you check yourself, don’t pass your STDs to me, and don’t get me pregnant when I don’t want to be, it’s fine.

And this is why I say so:

It’s because being in a relationship isn’t just about sex and affection. It’s really about the personality and character of the person and whether you enjoy each other’s company enough to spend the rest of forever with them. I want to be in a relationship with a real person. Not a perfect person. We’ve all made mistakes along the way to get to the place we are now, and those mistakes build character.

We all have bad traits and good traits, we are all beautiful and ugly, and we all have needs. In the long run, you’re dating to marry, correct? Or at the very least, you’re dating to find a compatible partner to spend the rest of your life with, or errrr until death do you part.

So what’s wrong with cheating? It’s the trust, huh. You lose the trust once you cheat. But what is trust really? Is it a bond between two people that can never be broken? If that’s the case, then how come we break up, lose contact with friends and family, or neighbors that move away? A bond between two people can be broken, and from what I know, it doesn’t mean anything, especially if no one knows.

What’s wrong with cheating? Haven’t you cheated on homework in elementary school or cheated on that Geometry exam your sophomore year of high school? If you say no, I’m going to ask you to try cheating. It’s a part of life, and shortcuts save time and can take you places you’ve never been before.

Really, no one is perfect, so why do you expect someone who’s cheated or been cheated on to be perfect? Cheating just makes you a real live imperfect person and shouldn’t be something to be looked down upon. Selfishness in what makes humans, humans. There are beautiful and attractive people everywhere you go. You think in the 7,292,945,023 plus people in the world I can’t find two that are attractive? I can, and probably will.

But the real reason people don’t cheat is because it takes planning and time to cheat. For the lazy girl or guy, this is a lot of work. You have to remember your lies, your excuses, and cover up the evidence. It’s complicated and exhausting, but definitely not wrong. And, how can you say it’s wrong if you’ve never done it before? It’s like saying, I don’t do drugs, but it’s wrong to. Actually, it’s only wrong to do drugs if you’re doing them and you don’t have your shit together. If you can afford to do drugs, then, you do you. I’m not advocating for it, but if that’s what you want and you can afford to, then by all means, you go girlllll.

Cheating is life. It’s immoral, it breaks people’s trust, it’s an act of selfishness, and it’s perfectly acceptable.

My one piece of advice to you is: Just don’t get caught. TC mark
