13 Common Lines Cheating Men Use



By Helena Mag

Reader Disclaimer:  if you are a lady reading this, please note this is not intended to cause rift between you and your partner or arouse unnecessary suspicions.

Line #1: “My phone died”

It is okay to run out of battery, but when this happens too often without battery issues involved, you really begin to wonder what drains his battery.

Line #2: “I will be working late”

He works late often and remains unreachable all through the period or his workload doesn’t even require working late.

Line #3: “She’s Just a Friend”

He never mentioned her until you caught him talking, texting or chatting with her and he drops this line.

Line #4: “Respect my privacy”

When is he overly possessive of his own privacy, what exactly is there to excessively privatize?

Line #5: “She means nothing to me”

He may just be looking for a way to take your mind off his relationship with that person

Line #6: “I hate surprise visits”

Why? Is he involved in some dirty jobs, strict parents or other women?

Line #7: “I can do my own laundry”

Most men actually prefer to do their own laundry except they don’t want you to discover the lipstick stains or feminine smell.

Line #8: “I can’t believe you don’t trust me”

You should read Trust Issues in a Romantic Relationship: Does Love Equal Trust?

Line #9: “It only happened once”

It only happened once, until you caught him.

Line #10: “It’s not what you think”

Then there must be a reasonable explanation for what you have seen with your two eyes.

Line #11: “I have changed”

This is another line to make you stay while they devise new means of not getting caught.

Line #12: “You are over reacting”

They make you question your own sanity.

Line #13: “I had a flat tyre”

Too many nails and broken bottles on the road

Line #14: “I will never do it again”

Same reason as Line #11

Line #15: “She is throwing herself at me”

Then throw her back at herself

If he tells any of these ‘lies’ often, it will be wise to get to the bottom of the matter by asking him or carrying out an investigation (an investigation sounds spooky? findings rather) before jumping into conclusions. And before you ask him you should read Trust Issues in a Romantic Relationship: Does Love Equal Trust?
