Recently when my husband and me went for a walk in the evening, cheating came up. And I said to him, before I met him I always cheated!
He was a bit taken aback and asked, if I cheated on every boyfriend.
I was thinking about that…. and tried to explain:
When it went down with a relationship, and I don’t deny that is was possibly on me, I cheated.
BUT the next day or even the same day, I ended my relationship because I knew cheating is not OK unless you have an open relationship and/or your other half is fine with it.
For some reason I thought, that it doesn’t really qualify as cheating when I end my relationship straight away, but it does, doesn’t it?!
You want to know why I cheated? The answer is simple:
Because I wasn’t in love and didn’t care (enough) about my boyfriend(s)! I wasn’t married and therefor I still had the “Free-As-A-Bird” status which allowed me to do as I pleased.
Do I regret that I cheated? No I don’t, because I never told my boyfriend(s) the said reason which topped the break-up which would have made the heartache for them even worse. I think cheating was my reason to end a relationship for good.
Nobody deserves to get cheated at. It is just wrong and the one who got cheated at will always asked themselves, what they did wrong!
