Say you’re going out with this guy you really like. Things are going great, until one day you find out that he cheated. Suddenly, BAM, everything falls apart… until he asks you to forgive him and give him another chance. So, do you do it?
We saw this topic being discussed in the message boards and we had to know how you girls felt about it. Would you take back a cheater, even though he totally messed up? Would you be able to forgive someone for that kind of dishonesty? It’s hard to give a definitive answer unless you’ve actually been in the situation, but either way, we want to know what you think. Check out what these girls had to say and then tell us your thoughts:
Would you ever take a cheater back? If yes, explain why and if no explain why. If you have ever taken a cheater back before, tell us your story and why you took him back, and if you guys are still together.
Have I ever taken a cheater back? Yes, because I honestly thought he would change. But he just wasn’t the same person, and things weren’t the same as they were before he cheated, so I knew I had to end it.
I would never, and I have never… Cheating is wrong. If you are going to do it once, then more then likely its going to happen again, so I would never take one back.
Well, I haven’t been cheated on but I did cheat on my boyfriend. It was within the first couple months of dating and I told him right away. What I did was pretty crappy but he forgave me and I haven’t cheated since. Would I take a cheater back? Well, I suppose it depends on the person and situation. I can’t say no or yes for certain because things are always so different when it actually happens.
So what do we think? Well, we have to agree with DaisyandTulip: it always depends on the people involved and the exact situation. If you love your boyfriend and are willing to try to forgive him for what he did, then give him another chance. But if you honestly feel so hurt that you don’t think you can past it, taking him back probably isn’t going to end well.
The truth is, forgiving and taking back a cheater is extremely difficult. If you were cheated on, that means you’re probably extremely hurt and more than likely, your trust is broken. It’s not an easy thing to get over, and sometimes, it’s best to break ties – especially if that dude is a serial cheater.
