Long story short I was in a relationship with a girl I thought was really sweet and kind, but she ended up cheating on me for some jock. Now I feel like I can't open myself up to a woman again because I will be betrayed again. Even if a girl acts sweet and kind I feel like it is an act she puts on for popularity. How can I learn to trust a woman again? And how can I tell between a real sweet and kind girl and one who is just acting?

I don't know, maybe just realize that not all women are like that?
As for being able to tell the difference between a sweet girl and a girl who's putting up an act... well, hasn't your experience taught you that there's no way you can tell the difference? Or at the very least, it's incredibly difficult. So it's either a hit or miss, really. You can always ask around or try see how she treats other people. Most people are bad liars and actors/actresses, so their true self tends to start shining through at some point. Maybe really get to know girls before getting in a relationship with them, that way you'll have some time to figure out if they're potentially bad people.1
