We’ve all heard the saying: “Once a cheater, always a cheater“. According to some people, cheating is never a one-time offense. Sure, there might be some guys and girls out there who are serial cheaters, but can you really say that that applies to everyone? If you knew a dude cheated once before, would you ever trust him enough to date him?
And what about if that dude was cheating on his last girlfriend… with you? If he broke up with her to date you, would you be able to go into a relationship with him knowing exactly how he deceived his last GF? We found a girl in the message boards who’s wondering the same thing, and we want to know your opinion. So read what these ladies had to say, and then tell us: would you date a cheater?
I’ve heard so many people say things like: “If he cheated WITH you, then he’ll probably cheat ON you.” or “Once a cheater, always a cheater…”
Say it was not in his/her track record to do so, and this was a one time thing when you were both very drunk, one of you upset from a break up and it just happened…if the guy/girl in question ended things with their partner and admitted to liking you straight afterwards or down the line… would you ever date them?
I’m there now. I’m dating the guy who cheated with me (and others). I’m a total believer in bad karma and I think the whole “If he’ll do it to her, he’ll do it to you too.” thing can be true sometimes. I just try to give this relationship the benefit of the doubt and hope for the best.
If I’m honest my boyfriend that I am with now cheated on someone with me. I know he’s cheated in the past. No one is a saint. I mean I’ve cheated and I’m not proud but believe if you find the right person you can change.
Our opinion? Yes, it’s true that some cheaters cheat again. But it’s also true that people make mistakes sometimes, and those mistakes shouldn’t be held against them their whole lives. That being said, if you want to date someone who’s cheated with you or cheated in the past, you should still be cautious. There’s no need to stalk them or restrict them from talking to any other girls. Just keep your eyes open and don’t forget the past.
When you know someone has cheated before, the main problem is usually about trust. If you can’t trust someone, your relationship is never going to be as strong as you want it to be. So if you think you can move past that issue, than go for it.
