I didn't but I considered it once or twice. My ex wasn't being faithful and something told me to leave him for this guy who would treat me right. Yet, I felt trapped and stayed with the cheater instead. I knew I made a mistake, but I felt that it would look bad to leave one for the other. In a weird way, I'd feel like a cheater.
No, but I considered it.

Instead, someone broke up with ME, for someone else.
Technically that IS what cheating is for, but one could argue that it is not the most optimal way of handling the situation...
The difficult part about that of course is actually finding a second person to break up for. If the relationship really is on the verge of decay, it may even fall apart BEFORE you find the alternative person to replace the current partner with.
Possible causes could be communication problems, emotional immaturity, sexual incompatibility, etc.
I broke up with a previous boyfriend for someone (we didn't go straight in to a relationship after the break up). The second person just understood me and connected with me so much more, there was compatibility. There was a lot of bad history with the boyfriend I left, he'd cheated a couple of times but kept pleading that it was a mistake so when someone else who was honest and genuine came along although I felt harsh I knew it was the right decision to leave.
I'd been dumped by someone for someone else, one of his friends asked him why and the guys response was "the new girlfriend was hotter". Ouch.
1. Vote 'B' yes I've done it in my teens 2. My girlfriend was someone who was actually forced upon me by my friends simply because she was attracted to me and at that brief moment I was single so these girls capitalized on that opportune moment to brainwash me which I wasn't actually but I gave in to their pressure nevertheless - bad decision I agree 3. The girl I went with was one of her friends (sadly) and we lasted a good 5 odd years and broke up with her for the same reason I generally do, insecurity related actions
Anybody who answered yes are cheaters. Usually you find that habit more often amongst girls because they prefer to avoid risks. So it's safer to chase another guy while having a boyfriend. Less risky but also less moral. But they don't care about moral. Only their feelings matter...
The only way I see this happening is when the first person is a rebound or maybe a person the guy/girl didn't like as much kept around to not be alone. Then comes along a person they really like and bam they end up leaving. not cool but a lot of people do this
