I will freely admit that I cheated on my boyfriend, it's not something I'm proud of, it's not something I will ever try to justify it to you, him or myself, but it happened, he forgave me and we're past it now. I cannot say why I did it, I don't even know. If you are one of those people who say 'it has nothing to do with alcohol' stop reading now. I was very drunk every time and I can honestly say that being teetotal has made a difference.
It's not about getting away with it, I never expected to get away with it, but then I also never expected to do it either, I didn't go out thinking tonight I am going to cheat, the thought didn't enter my mind and its not like I was going up to guys with the intention of cheating, if a guy a approached me, I guess I just didn't know how to say no, that's if my drunk self was able to say anything at all.
I've been saying the same thing on this message board for ages. What you said describes the sort of mentality a woman who cheats has in the majority of cases, where they can be talked into it or succumb to peer pressure/alcohol. This is why I don't like night clubs.
I agree where you say alcohol does have something to do with it, because it does. Having something to do with it and it being justifiable are two very different things though, thus you're still responsible for your actions as you decided to drink the alcohol.
I see the same lines being pulled out by women who've cheated all the time; "I don't know why I cheated" and "I didn't intend to cheat", when the reality is you simply put yourself in a position where temptation was rife and you were too weak-willed to turn it down. This is why you "don't know" why you cheated, because you didn't plan to do it (which I believe, but that's down to being naive I think).

I most likely have a much more exciting fufiling and enjoyable sex life then you do with a man I love and care for but anyway i dont need to boast on an internet forum goodbye
In terms of extra-marital affairs apparently it's more common for women to cheat because there's something fundamentally wrong in the relationship, and more common for men to cheat merely out of temptation In lesser relationships, who knows, could be any one of a number of reasons - fortunately this has never happened to me (to my knowledge)

Its nothing to do with gender although I do think that women turn on the water works, try to pain the guy out as the baddie or make out they were so drunk it wasnt there fault whereas guys are obviously the stronger ones so can hardly use to poor old little m line.
Peopl cheat because they are selfish they dont think about the other people they will hurt they just think of themselves they want something and they will do it regardless
There is never an excuse for cheating Whether your drunk, not given enough attention cheating is inexcusible people just use the 'Oh I was drunk' line to try justify and sooth their guilty conscience, maybe its not true once a cheat but the line 'what goes around comes around' is most certainly true
The rampant cheating that is going on is a sad indictment on our society. And although it is not seeen as acceptable, it is now accepted that it does happen, and that is a shame.
