Do you think its ever okay to leave someone for somebody else?

Let's say you're in a relationship where your boyfriend/girlfreind cheated on you or treated you badly. Does that make it okay to leave them for someone else? Or should they just have left them before?

  • Lets imagine you love fries. But you love icescream more. You are eating the fries but then your favorite icescream shows up. If you don't eat it, it will melt and you might never eat that flavor again. Do you think its wrong to leave the rest of your fries and go for the sweet icescream?

    There you go xD

  • That popular opinion is kinda messed up. Yeah, it's bad and in some cases it's worth it. However, after having a girl leave a guy for me, I won't ever do it again. If she falls in love fast, she'll fall out of love with you just as fast. Is it messed up? Yes. Should you do it? Completely depends. But again, don't ever date someone who's willing to leave someone for you.

    • I don't mean if things are fantastic in the relationship, I mean if the person cheats on you or is abusive, if then it's okay to leave as what I was asking

  • I believe, that if you're no longer in love
    with someone, it's more cruel, to stay with them.

    It's completely fine to leave someone
    who's no longer content with your presence.

    In the long run, it'd be better, emotionally
    and psychologically for the both of you.

  • Happened to me twice. The second time doesn't hurt so much. The first though was a rollercoaster. A badly made rollercoaster. I think if you lose interest in your partner you should just tell him/her and end the relationship without resorting to cheating.

  • Yes. That way when they find someone who actually loves them and the person you left them for leaves you there is a great withering and dying of your soul.

  • Yes, I am a flake and I flipflop between people. The partner I was once close to now means nothing to me in caparison to the new flame, so I'll tread all over them on my way to greener grass. When it inevitably happens to me too- I'll seek reconciliation, I want to hear that I'm not a bad person as I look at the mess I created and attempt to justify my actions.

  • If they cheated on you or treat you badly, go ahead and leave.

  • If you fall for someone while dating someone else, or if you just don't want to be with them anymore, it's okay to leave the current partner. It's not fair to either of you to stay in a relationship you don't fully want to be in.

    It's not okay to do anything with the other person before you've left the relationship. No kisses or dates or anything. Just wait until the current relationship is over.

  • Yes because they decided the relationship wasn't worth it first.
    Anytime your in love with someone else. Or just not in love anymore. There's no sense in wasting another persons time if there are no feelings there

  • LOL. You guys will outright leave a relationship if the other person cheats on you? You won't even bother asking why? If it's an abusive relationship, yes, leave. Cos that's not healthy. But if it's about cheating, ask why he did it. What made him approach someone else? Is it because he was bored of the current relationship, lost feelings, or a random urge, or peer pressure? Is he excited by the new feelings for someone else, or does he still want to be with you? Are you willing to forgive him if this was a one-time thing and he will be with only you from now?

    Try to understand the root cause. You do it by talking. And then you ask/decide what's best.

  • Here's my take on this
    If you truly loved or liked the first one, you wouldn't have feelings for the second and it's not fair to lead either one of them on so I always pick the second one
