Caught with my hands in the cookie jar


They say a thief has forty days but I think mine were like 42. For the longest time I was the happiest thief and I never ever thought I would get caught! Ever! See, I’m a serial cheat! Don’t ask me why I do it, I just do it! Maybe for the need of variety or just the thrill of it or maybe to add a bit of spice in my sex life.
Now, my story goes something like this… I don’t know whether I’m stupid or a douche bag or maybe both but I had the habit of bringing ‘chics’ back to my house! – the same house that I shared with my immediate ex who is also my ex fiancée- when I knew she was at work or on a business trip. I really don’t know what I was thinking.

Anyway, so I used to mess around with quite a number of women all at the same time -greedy I know. Interestingly though is that chics nowadays are so different. They know you have a steady girlfriend or that you are even married but they will still be with you willingly.
My ex is an auditor with a multi-national company, so that means that she travels a lot! Most of the time out of the country. I am a businessman, I deal with real estate and I sell cars as well so I am ever in the country unless when I decide to take a vacation.

I used to be a pretty good guy. Not perfect, but good. The type that never even looked at other girls but I think I got greedy along the way when I saw my boys doing it and not getting caught. Some of you might deny it but the saying “monkey see, monkey do” is very true. I got hooked and cheated worse than my boys…I beat them at their own game and became the master!

On this particular fateful day, I think my fiancée‘s flight got cancelled and so she came back home. Chics love to inform one of everything that’s happening in their lives. For example, the normal thing that happened between us would be that she’d call immediately she found out her flight had been cancelled and maybe complain about wasting all that time trying to get to the airport in good time.
But on this particular day she didn’t call me, she just came back home and alas! there I was in bed with another woman who happens to be our mutual friend and who I came to find out later is expecting my child (she claims the condom broke).

My ex was so shocked to see us in bed that she let whatever she was carrying fall onto the floor. She cried for several days on end, and called in sick at work. When she got back to her usual self she asked me just one question “How many times has that happened?” and of course I couldn’t answer because the answer was going to kill her…”err… just countless times?” Of course when I couldn’t respond, she packed her bags and moved out the same day.

I was caught red handed! But the worst part is that I never have romantic feelings for any of the girls I’ve been with apart from my ex. I just ruined a perfect thing.
I still love her. I really do. Plus my family also adored her. I need her back in my life and I have tried to apologize like a billion times. Everyday I apologize but she will hear none of it. She moved out of the house and out of my life. It’s been four months since we broke up and everyday I regret my many mistakes. I have learnt a huge lesson though. My life has changed for the worst and even my business is not doing as well. What should I do? I need her BACK!Any ideas?

    get a life. you learned your lesson,the damage is already done. you apologized and if she wouldn’t listen there is nothing you can do about it. just move on and if fate allows it and she still has feelings for you ,will she will come. its may be hard but you just had to pay the price. good luck

    Why would you even want her back? If she comes back, know that she will revenge, not once or twice..till it hurts. Why dont you continue with the girl she caught you with??…you see??

    1.You are a player who don’t know how to play.
    2.You don’t deserve her.
    Now start over again as if you are from a 20 year jail sentence. Understood?

    Been there before and don’t think you want to proceed in that direction. Best thing to do is walk away, keep the good memories and try and re-start life. One more thing, ditch the habit, I have learnt that a healthy relationship is much more sweeter than a bevy of sexy women. Sounds silly until you try it . . . . . . . . . . .

  • Badpiper

    You are a player who don’t know how to play!!!! Really Larry? Dude got caught after getting away with it for God knows how long… mr ‘caught with my hands in the cookie jar,’ you really think a billion apologies will win her over??? come on… if you had slipped up once maybe.. severally like an addict who needs his fix come on….. pay the piper man cut your losses and move on…

  • K89

    What a low life! You do all that sh*t and expect her back….you give men a bad name!

  • Brother, trust is out the window.Believe me, even if you were able to win her back, it will NEVER be the same.Besides, didn’t you ever think you would get caught? ALL players do get caught, you must have been deluded by thinking you were the exception.Anyway, count your losses, damage has already been done.Look for someone else to fleece and cheat on.

  • Roba

    Move on dude…..Question to you guys though..Is flirting considered to be cheating? Your views please. 

  • Ikibbz

    you made your bed,lay in it.

  • Dxdxdx

     i see myself reposting this once my 40 days are over… i have a feeling i have already done 35

  • Sarah

    its called stupidity and inadequate thinking, I quote the book of proverbs.

  • MUSHI Pierre McFord

    Jamani, duh! Any way, it doensnt matter so much that something bad has happened! the worse could have happened, what matters is how one deals with what has happened! Now you shouldnt cry back for her … forge ahead with life and learn from that silly experience if at all you will be chanced to have romantic feelings to another that will accept you…. na usirudie tena huo upumbavu wa kulala na mwanamke mwingine kwenye kitanda chako na mke wako! Ukome!

    Its hard for you to forget since u truly loved her, but trying n putting your ideas elsewhere might help you to forget about your past…if possible (i know its hard or impossible but TRYYYY) delete her number if u still have ,Oh gosh u still living in the same House..MOVE!!! it will make u forget the actual place or actual thing

  • b.o.b.i

    fact remains that you lost her,that was your worst and last mistake..all you need is to move on..its that part of a break up that gets hard..but how much have you tried to convince her? she might be waiting for something extra from you..and don’t consider attempting suicide,,that’s stupidity,,but if she doesn’t give your world a chance,move on..tell your heart it got to leave,,let go of the pasts hand and hold on to the futures hand…that’s the only way ..
