Although there's never a good excuse for cheating or for lying, there are some reasons why men often fail to tell the truth about their horrible behavior. Let's look at why cheating boyfriends and husbands deny the truth.
Reason 1: Character Issues
Some cheaters are just plain dishonest--through and through. Think about it, anyone who's cheating is already engaging in the worst possible kind of lie. Why should we expect them to become honest when confronted about their disgusting behavior?
Reason 2. Bad Advice
Men often believe bad advice about handling these situations. They're taught (primarily by other men) that their first reaction upon being caught should be outright denial. It's silly. It doesn't work. But they go with what they've been told, stupidly claiming "it wasn't me" even when we know better.
Reason 3. A Matter of Conscience
Sometimes, the cheater actually does feel bad about what he's done. There are cheating boyfriends and cheating husbands who feel absolutely miserable about the fact that they're engaging in betrayal. Some of them may lie about their affairs in hopes of sparing their victim's feelings.
Reason 4. The Don't Want To Split Up
Even though the guy is fooling around, he may want to maintain his relationship with you. I know, that sounds twisted. Welcome to the mind of a cheater, though. In an effort to keep your relationship afloat, the cheater may deny his affair.
Reason 5. Fear
Fear is a big motivator. Guys will lie about their cheating in order to avoid the consequences of being busted. A cheating husband may want to avoid a divorce. A cheating boyfriend might worry about what you'll do and what will happen to him. That fear may lead a guy to deny the truth.
Why do men lie about cheating? There are at least five reasons they won't come clean. Even more important than understanding why guys do the things they do, though, is knowing how to find the truth.
If you even suspect that you're a victim of cheating, you deserve the truth--and you deserve it right now.
