Have You Ever Cheated in a Relationship?

7 thoughts on “Have You Ever Cheated in a Relationship?”

  1. I have multiple times with multiple partners I plan on writing this out on my blog, but it’s proving to be a daunting task. I usually spill everything there. Being 9 months in recovery, I am at the point where I can safely take a look in my Pandora box. But I closed the list very quickly for now lol

  2. I believe that people cheat for numerous reasons. They are not happy or something important is missing. If people are together for a long time, they can grow apart, and the memories of what they used to be keep them in a relationship longer than they should be. We become content and accustomed to routine. Nobody likes change… why rock the boat right?

    Just because you do not fight and you can tolerate the person (and even love the person), it does not mean you are happy. Being a zombie and just following routine every day can take a toll on your mental health… and you do not even realize its happening. Then something transpires. Someone is interested in you… or you find someone that you are interested in. All of a sudden – you feel alive again… and that feeling is so exhilarating that it makes you take a step back and realize it has been a long time since you felt anything.

    In my experience – that feeling of being wanted, or craving the attention of another has made me feel so alive, that it was easy to be selfish. It is literally like a drug. When I have realized what my life has been lacking, I would justify that I owed it to myself to do what I wanted – because anything could happen, and it could be my last day on earth. You never know.

    Do I regret some of the decisions that I made? Yes and no. I have cheated on someone I cared for and loved so much, but we were not the same couple anymore. Someone coming along and shaking up my world made me see how lifeless I have become, and helped me see that we have outgrown each other. A part of me does regret it, but I believe that the temptation served a purpose – and gave me that nudge to realize that although I loved him unconditionally, it was time for me to leave. Cheating was the end game for me to say goodbye (because I did love him, I could not continue to be deceitful)… but the relationship was over way before then.

    1. I appreciate the pure honesty of this comment. I could not have agreed more with the things you said and your perspective is really in line with mine. I think sometimes the most difficult or “regretful” decisions we make are the ones that define the people we become.
