I'd be angry if we are having problems in our relationship and they try to cover up doing stuff with other people, I don't think I would immediately end the relationship but we would need to talk about what is going on a lot, and likely end it after that. It just makes me mad when someone doesn't communicate.
If our relationship is going very well and I can tell that they genuinely love me and they tell me up front that something happened with someone else, then I would likely be okay with it. It's not the act itself that's bad to me, it's the deception.
If someone cheated on me, I would forgive them if they were genuinely sorry... but I would still break up with them.
I think once you've broken the trust at that level, it would be really hard to fully trust them again. Also, if someone is truly in love with you, they wouldn't have the desire to cheat on you in the first place... so I'd just assume we weren't meant to be anyways.
Someone who has the character of a cheater won't magically change just because they got caught. It's either who you are as a person, or you're not that person. Unless this is happening in your youth, a cheater in their mid-late 20's and up isn't really going to change.
No take backs, no do overs, strike one you're out! I get that cheating happens due to feelings of abandonment, being undesired, unwanted, or just generally not feeling good around the other person, however, it is best to bring it up long before it gets to infidelity. If I couldn't resolve the issue I would break up then find someone, not act on my feelings and emotions.
Once a cheater, always a cheater. Immediately dump them and don't look back. If they didn't respect you enough to stay faithful, or at least break up with you before they fucked someone else, they will do it over and over since you will take them back.
Loyalty is the most important thing. Betrayal is the shattering of all trust and loyalty. I will never give someone who betrays me a second chance. when they know how highly I hold the idea of loyalty to each other, if they are willing to betray that, they deserve nothing but scorn, or even hatred.
If you're not married or with kids, just fucking break up.
If you're one or both of the above, depends. A is required, but probably not enough - the relationship was flawed, not just their response to it. Things need to improve AND they need to show they'd react differently if they felt the same way again.
My police is that I don't go with the ridiculous and antithetical-to-human-instinct implicit social contract of "only me". I don't care who she sleeps with, so I never have a problem with cheating.
All you idiots have fun getting cheated on and repeatedly having your heart broken.
I have boundaries within a relationship , so if a guy cheated on me i would leave him. I could never forgive any kind of betrayal. I would never cheat on a guy, so i won't accept less than i am willing to give.
I'd leave him, cut all means of contact so i could heal and move on from him
I can forgive, but I'll never forget. And once someone cheats, I lose trust in them. Without trust, trying to continue a relationship is pointless. I've been cheated on before. And I tried to look past it and stay. Doesn't work.
