Me and my girlfriend have been together for 2 years and she recently told me she cheated on me. She said it was in the beginning of the relationship and the reason why is because she didn't realize that I was really in love with her so she had a "back up" I guess. And I just keep thinking about that and it just keeps bothering me. I know I should just let it go since it was about 2 years ago but why would she tell me so late into our relationship. Someone tell me should I forgive her? Do you think she will do it again?

You should forgive her, not because it benefits her, but because it's in your best interest to do so. Forgiving is not forgetting, but if you don't forgive.. you'll simply just be carrying it around and it will wear on you. She could have not told you at all. I'm not saying that it's right, and I definitely know it hurts and is bothersome to think about because it's always on your mind. It was probably something that was wearing on her, not coming out about it. And that is probably why she came out so late about it. She probably felt guilty over it and knew that it would hurt you to know, but hiding something like that can be exhausting and she wanted to come clean.0
