Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater…or however that phrase goes. Okay, unless somebody is in a terrible or abusive sort of relationship, infidelity is such a turn off . A big turn off. Cheating isn’t just the physical act of hooking up with somebody else behind your partner’s back either. Emotional cheating, confiding with someone else for emotional fulfillment, can be just as detrimental to a relationship. It takes a lot to squick me out, but infidelity is pretty high on that list–though it’s still behind mint chocolate, which is the most offensive, always.
So cheating sucks, but honestly, cheating has inspired some amazing songs. So, in a way, cheating is a necessary evil because, while it sucks, I want some good music in my life. So I’d say that it’s a pretty fair compromise. I guess that’s how it works.
Here’s a playlist of songs about finding love in someone else or feeling betrayed by the one you love.
