These past few years, I've been unfortunate enough to meet a lot of boys who cheat or have cheated on their girlfriends. In fact, I know so many at this point that it's quite unsettling. It's tragic to know that even in some relationships, nothing is certain. As such, I've finally decided to dedicate an article to these f*ckboys who want to have it all.

Here's to the boys who have given me the following bullsh*t reasons as to why they felt compelled to cheat on their girlfriends.

1. "I just have so much love to give."

OK, but if you're not only trying to sleep with one person, then why are you in a relationship? Do your thing, but stop hurting someone in the process.

2. "Long distance was too hard on me."

A CLASSIC response. My ex gave me the same one when he cheated on me. I get that long distance is difficult, but obviously if you're cheating, then you're not 100% invested in your relationship. In which case, why haven't you broken up with her yet? And no, "wanting to do it in person" is not a valid reason.

3. "She's cheated on me before—multiple times."

Why the f*ck are you guys still together then? This is clearly toxic.

4. "We were on a break!"

It's funny to me how this line is apparently so relatable to boys in their 20s. They "break up" with their girlfriends for two seconds and are already planning their next move. Or, even better, they tell the other girl that they've broken up with their girlfriend.. and then the other girl finds out they never broke up in the first place. Ha, hilarious!!! Thanks for being a d*ck.

5. "She was being a b*tch."

Yes! GREAT reason to cheat on your girlfriend! She's having a bad day, and off you go to another girl just to get away from the drama. Please, tell me again how much you actually love her, though, and how she's your soulmate.

6. "My GF doesn't like facials. The other girl does."

I actually have no words. This f*ckboy decided to cheat on his girlfriend because of a sexual preference. I have no hope in humanity.

7. "We got into a big fight."

I find it incredibly confusing how people don't understand that relationships aren't all rainbows and butterflies. I don't care if you typically never fight. Eventually, you will, and it'll probably be a pretty big one. But just because that fight lasts a week doesn't mean that you should sleep with other girls while you wait it out. Is that not common sense?

8. "She's stressing me out."

It's funny, really, how many guys have said this exact statement. Boys are trash.

9. "My GF and the girl don't have the same friends, so she'll never find out."

Again, another BRILLIANT justification as to why it's totally fine for someone to cheat! You know, if you've really gone so far as to purposefully pick a girl who doesn't run the same social circles as you and your GF, then don't cheat, and she'll never find out! It's really that simple. Who knew?

10. "I was drunk."

...followed by 10 more excuses after that trying to justify the act.


I have no doubt that in my lifetime, I will meet so many more people like these 10 individuals. And while these boys (and so many others) are trash significant others, they've not only proven to me that people don't change (Once a cheater, always a cheater!), but that even the least expecting people can surprise you.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
