If yes, why did you do it?
Do you regret it?
What drove you in that direction?
Did you confess?
Did it work out? Did you stay together or break up?

I did- I had a boyfriend when I was about 19 and I cheated on him.
I have no idea why. I don't think I had a reason, really. It was like when my daughter (she was 5 at the time) cut a big chunk of her hair off. I asked her why she did that, because it's not like she didn't know how scissors worked- and she said she didn't know. She just really needed to do it, she said. And I totally understood because that was how it was when I cheated on my poor boyfriend that time. I don't KNOW why. I just... did.
I did regret it- I felt f***ing terrible. It hit me like 5 seconds after I put my pants on and I felt so bad.
No idea, like I said. Just dumb, I guess.
I did confess the very next day.
We broke up like a year later for reasons having nothing to do with The Incident. We were 20 and 21- I mean... yeah. I never did it again, though. And he was really cool about it- he didn't continue to punish me or anything. He was very matter-of-fact about it. He asked me if that behavior was something I intended to repeat, and I said of course not. And he asked me was I sorry, and I said YES, so sorry! And he asked me if I wanted to stay with him or was this my way of breaking up with him, and I said I wanted to stay with him. I loved him. SO he said he forgave me, and that was it. He never brought it up ever again. At the time I didn't fully appreciate how awesome he was about it.
