We all know that we're not supposed to cheat on our significant others, but sometimes cheaters will try to explain their side of the story and the reasons behind their infidelity to get their partner to be a little more forgiving.
Then there are people like this, whose given reasons for cheating are so unjustified that they're kind of hilarious.

10 Hours Is Not Enough Time To Make Assumptions, Sir
Ladies, picture this: you're feeling unwell after a long week and decide that your body could use a rest. You go to bed and wake to find out that your boyfriend cheated after you didn't text him back. Do you kill him, or just feel embarrassed that you were ever attracted to him?

Wow, What A Convincing Lie
Fellas, have you ever been at a party and were just so sick of getting hit on by so many women that you needed your bro to suck on your neck?
Oh, The Weather Outside Is Frightful
I've heard of men trying to "baby, it's cold outside" themselves into getting a girl to stay over, but I have never heard of trying to use it as justification for cheating.
Did She Gift-Wrap Herself Too?

Hmmm, Can't Imagine Why...
A question for the dudes: have you ever met a girl that reminded you of your GIRLFRIEND who you're supposed to LOVE AND CHERISH and thought, I should cheat on my girlfriend with her?

I Smell Cap
Ahah, just the classic take her number and instead of just never texting her, taking her to see a movie and paying for everything before hooking up in the back of her car. Such a good one, bro.

You know when your girlfriend asks if you've been cheating because of the dismissive and shady way you've been acting towards her, so in order to solve things you sleep with someone else to prove her right? Yeah, me neither.
