The girl and guy are happily an official couple, and she has since decided not to be friends with the other girl and anyone else who knew about it.
It got me thinking about why girls always blame the other girl in these situations. It actually makes zero sense. Last time I checked, it takes two people to participate in a hookup.
In the situation with my friends, something should have been said right away. But I think the outcome would have still been the same. The guy doesn’t get blamed. Sure, the girl will be mad at the guy for a minute. But it seems like, in most cases, the guy is forgiven and the other girl is the worst person ever for the rest of eternity.
I’ve asked a ton of different girls why this appears to be the case, and they all have said that it’s because we like the guy too much to blame him.
I have to say from personal experience, that sounds about right. I dated a guy that cheated on me several times (with different girls even!) and every single time, I forgave him and blamed the other girl. It finally hit me the last time it happened that I should have been blaming him all along.
Maybe it’s because we’re too competitive with other girls. If a guy strays and comes back to a girl, she feels like she won. Or maybe it’s that girls should know better under the idea that we think guys can’t help it.
Whatever the reason, it needs to stop. The guy is just as much guilty as the other girl.
Why do you think girls usually blame the other girl? Have you ever blamed the other girl in a cheating situation? Did you ever really forgive the guy? Tell us in the comments!
