People cheat. It happens. I’ve cheated. I’ve also been cheated on. For whatever reason though, men are always considered the cheating gender. Maybe it’s because we’re so bad at it. Women are better liars than we are, and there’s nothing we can do about it. Manipulation is embedded in the X chromosome. So truthfully, I don’t think men cheat more, I just think women are better at it.
Case in point: the piss poor excuses men give when doing the dirty. I’ll give you a second to guess the number one excuse we give. Ok. Ready. You got one. The number #1 excuse cheating men give their wives is … playing golf. That’s right, shooting 9 holes with your buddies is the most popular excuse, which 34% of cheating men give their wives– when they’re actually having an affair.
No wonder we always get caught. The results of the survey come from a dating website for married people, IllicitEncounters.com, in a survey of more than 2000 men. So, without further ado, the top 5 (the other category doesn’t count) horrible, stupid, no-good, excuses cheating men give their wives:
#1 – “I’m going to play golf” (34%)
#2- “I’ve got a business meeting/working late” (27%)
#3- Other (17%)
#4- “I’m going to the bar with my friends” (13%)
#5- “I’m going to the gym” (5%)
#6- “I’m going grocery shopping” (4%)
