    I have been cheated on in the past

    that he cheated on me a few days ago. It was at a friend's birthday party and he was drunk. He is genuinely remorseful and sorry that he did it, and he said that it was a conscious decision even though he was drunk, but that he was being stupid and selfish. I'm incredibly hurt...

    It wasn't her that ruined us.

    ..it was you. I loved you unconditionally but you did the ONE thing I can't forgive. Swear I wanna forgive you but I know it will never be the same and you are no longer the person I thought you were. That really sucks bc I fell in love w that person...who doesn't exist.

    husband for 20 yrs. The devoted husband. It was a well planned lie. He was a cunning cheater. There were many signs but never a conviction. He was lazy. Accused me of exhausting him of accusing him of cheating. He even charmed our pastors wife and turned her against me. Everyone...

    In my current relationship

    and the previous relationship. Which completely dumbfounds me. In a relationship I spoil my guys. Cook. Clean. Massage. Very active sex life. And yet....they cheated. So that tells me it's not me. So why? I don't get it.

    of, it could be more) One was a relationship of 2 years and he had cheated on me for 5-6 months, pretty much had a new girlfriend while still being with me. I hate men now and can't trust anyone. I dont know how else to protect myself, I have to hate them.

    but when the words came out of your mouth it hurt a billion times more. I didn't want to believe it, I just wanted to curl up and die. It's not that you cheated on me, it's that you had feelings for her and still do. Now I have nightmares about it every night, now I never feel...

    It really bothers me that

    as I write this someone else is flirting with my wife and getting her excited. Someone else gets to spend time with her and get to know her. Why is it so hard for some people to completely leave a relationship before they begin another one?

    It so hard to admit,

    so hard to believe, so hard to grasp. But it happened. I guess you can never put to much trust into the man you married. I'm just so sad, and it hurts and though I forgave him, fought for him. To this day the pain hurts. We let ourselves drift over the years, I guess. But I...

    why people feel the need to stay in a relationship if they cheat. If you're unable to stay faithful to someone, why keep stringing them along? Why not just be single and screw around with whoever you want, without hurting anyone else in the process? It's entirely selfish. It's...

    Cheaters are selfish people.

    He had an affair. I love this excuse, to me this a cheater way out. I think one night stands are misunderstood. They make it seem like you have a one night stand with a stranger, and in most cases it's some you know. The affair is the excuse they use the "fog" as they call it...
