It’s time again to play the game “Problem, Adult Solution, Cheater Solution”! I ran a similar post about a year ago, but I think it’s time to refresh for the newbies and see how far you’ve come for the old timers.
Chump regular Chris DiRico gave this great shorthand about how cheaters react to adult problems in selfish ways. His example:
PROBLEM: My wife and I argue often, mostly over financial matters.
ADULT SOLUTION: From now on, we’re going to keep a closer eye on our finances, cutting costs where we can. We’re also going to work to improve our lines of communication, particularly where financial matters are concerned.
CHEATER SOLUTION: I’m gonna go fuck a 20-year-old.
This prompted several chumps to pen their own little problem/cheater solutions. So today I’m inviting you to do the same.
I think it’s a great exercise for several reasons. A) It’s making fun of the absurdity of cheaters. Always fun. And B) It’s a good way to remind yourself that these people have CHOICES. That you didn’t drive them to cheat. There were grown-up ways of addressing real marital issues or their lives’ dissatisfactions and they chose infidelity. Good way to rewire your brain to think about this.
So have at it — problem? Adult solution? Cheater solution?
