There’s nothing worse than a cheater who has no remorse. They go through life thinking it’s okay to cheat and lie, and they never feel bad about it. They might even brag about their conquests to their friends. It’s sickening. And the worst part is, they’ll never change.
They’ll never realize how wrong they are and they’ll never feel sorry for the pain they’ve caused. So if you’re ever unfortunate enough to encounter someone like this, just walk away and don’t look back.
However, if you’re very curious and confused by this type of attitude and the reasons for it; then read on and you might learn more about what it means when someone cheats and proceeds to have no remorse.
Why a cheating person shows no remorse?
1- They’ll cheat again:
If you’ve been cheated on, you probably want to know why. And more importantly, you want to know if they’re going to do it again. One of the biggest indicators that they will repeat it and that you shouldn’t forgive them is if they don’t feel remorseful about what they did.
If they act like they did nothing wrong or try to make you feel like the antagonist in the situation, it’s likely because they don’t have any empathy for how their actions affected you. And if they can’t empathize with you, they’re not likely to think twice about hurting you again in the future.
Cheaters who show no remorse are often the worst as they are repeat offenders, so it’s best to move on and find someone who will be more respectful of your relationship. Think about checking out this article later on the different ways in which cheaters might react when confronted. As you’ll see one of the worst is when they have no remorse.
2- They thought it out well before cheating it:
If someone that cheated is showing a lack of remorse then please don’t think that cheating was a mistake or an accident. This is because they probably planned on cheating all along and their plan worked, so they’re proud of themselves and have no reason to feel remorseful. They feel no guilt because they got what they wanted, which was exactly cheating.
Cheaters of all types also tend to be very selfish anyways. Check this article out later on what cheating says about a person in the first place. You will see that they only care about their own needs and desires and they have no concern for the person they cheated on.
If you’ve been cheated on, it’s important to remember that it’s not your fault, especially if you couldn’t even get an apology nor did you see one ounce of guilt on your cheating partner’s face. The cheater is the only one to blame. Don’t waste your time feeling guilty or wondering what you could have done differently. Just move on and take care of yourself.
3- They already decided you’re not worth commitment:
When you confront a cheater, they’ll usually have one of two very common reactions: they’ll either be sorry for what they did or they won’t. If they don’t show any remorse, it’s because they think that what they did wasn’t wrong. Or they never perceived your value or worth as a partner and think they can treat you any way they want.
They probably think you don’t deserve respect, commitment, or even a display of remorse. They don’t think they need to change their ways because they don’t see anything wrong with them. Cheaters who have no remorse are usually the type who will cheat again and again.
They’re not sorry for what they did and not even sorry they got caught, because they have no shame or ethics. So, if you’re dating someone who cheated and they don’t show any remorse, beware. They probably don’t value you nor appreciate your worth.
4- They have nothing to lose:
Unfortunately, there are some people who will simply never feel sorry for cheating so if you got your hands on one, all we can do is be sorry for you. This over-confidence may simply mean that to them, they have nothing to lose by cheating. Even if the worst outcome or scenario happened and you left them, they’d probably think they’ll be just fine. They don’t realize or don’t care how much pain they’ve caused you.
All they care about is themselves and their own needs. If you’re dating someone who has cheated in the past, it’s important to consider leaving them. Not that they’d care much about it anyway.
As a general rule cheaters usually have one thing in mind: themselves. Whether they’re worried about getting caught or they simply don’t care about your feelings, cheaters typically only think about what’s best for them at the moment. And that often means sacrificing your relationship for their own satisfaction and pleasure.
So if your partner has cheated in the past, it’s important to ask yourself how much they’d truly care or if they will cry at all if you lost your life the next day. Otherwise, you might find yourself in a hurtful situation down the road.
5- They’re overconfident and think their partner will not leave:
When a cheater has no remorse, they could also be basically saying that they don’t think their partner will ever leave them. They’re confident that they can get away with it and that their partner doesn’t have enough pride to demand respect and leave when it’s not served.
This attitude is often a recipe for disaster, as it can lead to further cheating and ultimately the breakdown of the relationship. Cheaters who have no remorse are typically too self-centered to see the consequences of their actions. They are also too arrogant and probably made their partner depend on them financially or in some other twisted way so they believe that all their disrespect will and can be taken by them.
They’re more concerned with their own needs and desires, and they don’t care about the pain and suffering they cause their partner. In short, they’re selfish and insensitive, and they don’t deserve to be in a committed relationship.
If you’re dating someone who has cheated on you and shows no remorse, once more we tell you that you can probably do better than that in a heartbeat. There’s nothing good that can come from staying with someone like that.
