These People Don’t Have A Problem Taking Back A Cheater


She cheated on me 3 months before we were to get married. Decided to give her another chance. We even didn’t cancel the wedding, just postponed it for 12 months. Cheated again only a few months later with another person. All of that was after a 5 year relationship. She never cheated then, only towards the end she changed.


I forgave her. She didnt even remotely try to make up for it. Not even walk on eggshells about the subject. Like she would mention the guy to me over and over again as if I was supposed to console her over the fact that he just wanted sex from her. I broke up with her for good when she did it again. Never again. She’s still miserable like 4 years later. What a way to throw a 10 year relationship down the drain.


Being trapped in a lease with someone makes you think differently. When you don’t have that hard evidence, but deep down you know whats going on. Physically didn’t have the money to break up with her, if that makes sense. After the lease ended and we moved into separate places, I gave us a few more months, but we ended it in April. Probably a good thing, because her and her new BF just celebrated their 1 year in October. Hmmmm.


He cheated on me with my best friend at the time. I ended the friendship rather than the relationship, because I thought his honesty in coming forward to admit his wrongdoing was noble and deserved another chance. He unfortunately took my forgiveness as “Oh! I can get away with it and get off scot free!” After I forgave him, he CONTINUED to fuck said “friend” on the side, made out with my OTHER close friend, hit on several of my other friends, and then ultimately asked me over the phone for a “hall pass” so he could sleep with his coworker. I had been with him for about a quarter of my life at the time, and was so invested (or comfortable) in the relationship that it was very, very difficult for me to break it off, despite his infidelities and overall shitty-ness. I finally grew a pair and told him to fuck off, and haven’t spoken to him since.


I slept with this girl who later admitted to me that she had a long distance boyfriend. I told her this needs to stop and then she broke up with him to be with me. A few months later she moves out of the country and we keep dating. She cheats on me. Can’t believe I didn’t see it coming.
