Unfaithful people have revealed the real reasons they cheated on their partners – including one woman who used flings as a ‘catalyst’ to end her relationships.
The stories were shared on an Australian blog, with dozens of cheaters confessing what really happened before going astray.
One man said he ended up losing a good friend and a 10-year relationship after a ‘drunken mistake’ when his girlfriend was out of town.

‘I went out for drinks with some friends and then a few of us headed back to my place to hang out. Everyone left except for a girl I was pretty good friends with, we kept drinking and talking about nonsense until we went to bed,’ he explained.
‘We slept in the same bed, which is not unusual for me to sleep in the same bed with platonic friends and one thing led to another and we were having pretty intense sex.’
Half way through the dirty deed, the pair had a ‘what the f*** is happening’ moment before they both scrambled to get dressed.
‘She panicked, I panicked, she called an Uber and left. Have not seen or spoken to her since.’
One woman – who had a ‘bad habit of letting relationships drag on far past their emotional end’ – said she used cheating as a way to break up her current partner.
‘I would fall out of love with these men, but I didn’t realise it until I had fallen for someone else,’ she explained.
‘I would end up kissing the new guy, and breaking up with the old guy immediately after. Essentially the cheating served as the catalyst for ending a relationship.’

The key signs that indicate you are the ‘other’ woman or man
* Dates are spontaneous and there are no long-term plans
* Most of your phone calls happen during the day
* Evening correspondence will be via text and there will be delayed replies
* You are likely to have never been to their house or met family or friends
* You don’t go to venues near their house
* They will likely pay with things in cash a lot of the time
* They will react defensively if you question them too much
Another woman who was in a relationship started sending flirty messages to a co-worker which eventually led to sexting.
‘My relationship imploded shortly after. I slept with the co-worker not long after the end of the relationship and realised it was so not worth it,’ she explained.
‘He s*cked in bed, was poorly endowed and ended up being a douche who got bored with me after he slept with me. Which I totally deserved. Karma is a b****.
‘Why did I do it? I let my passions rule me, and I felt trapped.’
One man said he was in a ‘one-sided relationship’ with his girlfriend who he described as a ‘dead weight’ who ‘took a toll on my energy’.
‘I’d always have to carry our conversations and organise dates by myself. Literally, imagine carrying a body pillow wherever you go,’ he explained.
‘I then started to ignore her through phone and social media. I went out with a group of friends and hit it off with another girl. It reminded me what it was like having a life.’
Another woman said she was in a relationship with an alcoholic who would go drinking every weekend with his high school friends but complained he didn’t have any money, friends or time to do work.
She ended up kissing a friend when they were ‘absolutely smashed’ so she confessed to her boyfriend about the unfaithful act.
‘I was so torn up about it, I felt sick for days and eventually told him,’ she said.
‘He revealed that he had cheated on me during his numerous clubbing ventures but didn’t want to tell me because it would cause a fight.
‘He also demanded I completely cut ties with the guy I had cheated with. Which I refused on principle. He broke up with me after moaning about how he wasn’t sure if he could trust again.’
