Cheating seems to be a topic that I can’t seem to get away from lately. I have never been cheated on, and I have never cheated on anyone, yet somehow I’ve been involved in cheating anyways.
Obviously, cheating is wrong. Period. But I’ve known several girls who have cheated on their boyfriends, and don’t really care. They love their boyfriends, but want to experience other people. I’m not one to judge, but I would never cheat on a boyfriend, and if a guy cheated on me, you can bet he would have his tires slashed.
It’s hard to be a good friend to someone who does something that you disagree with. I give them one of two options: either break up with your boyfriend, or stop cheating on him.
I experienced cheating from a third-party perspective. I was the other woman. Yes, I feel bad, but I’m single and he made no mention of a girlfriend of any kind. My ex also tried to hook-up with me while dating a new girl, and I denied him several times.
How can you trust anyone anymore? Some guy you’re hooking up with might have a girlfriend, or your significant other might be cheating on you. Maybe your parents divorced because of cheating. Whatever the situation, everyone at some point will deal with some form of it.
The best thing you can do is talk about it. Find out if whoever you’re interested in has cheated before. Be open about your thoughts, or what might have happened to you. Make it clear where you stand on the issue. If you’ve been cheated on, don’t let it ruin you. And if you’ve cheated on someone, be honest and confess.
What are your thoughts on cheating? Have you ever cheated or been cheated on?
