I’ve never actually cheated on someone I exclusively in a relationship with. I was sort of dating someone unofficially and backslid with my ex, but since I wasn’t really with the other person I don’t consider it cheating. It’s a gray area. That said, I have been cheated on by my high school boyfriend. He pretty much cheated on me throughout our entire relationship, which was generally a terrible mess.
I’ve also unknowingly been the other woman. That’s no cakewalk either especially since I literally had no idea and was under the impression this guy was not with his girlfriend anymore. But he was a lying liar, and I haven’t talked to him since. Cheating sucks no matter what, and I wish people would just stop doing it. However, it does happen. Regardless of the reason, here are 10 thoughts you’ll have (at least if you feel badly about it):
1. OMG! What did I just do?
2. I effed up.
Like, really, really messed up.
3. This is really bad.
4. This is NEVER happening again.
5. Should I tell my boyfriend/girlfriend?
I mean, it’s the right thing to do…
6. What if we break up?
7. If I don’t tell them, they might find out.
I have guilt written all over me.
8. I am the worst.
Seriously, I hate myself right now.
9. Okay, I have to suck it up and be honest.
I messed up so I need to own up.
10. Whatever happens, happens.
Jesus take the wheel? IDK. Help.
