  • no don't go back you yourself are saying its not going to work just move on cut all ties with him & try not associate with people he knows so he is not always hearing about you or possibly seeing you. I went through a simlar situation but not cuz he cheated and I just moved on & eventually dated someone else... its tough but life goes on & maybe next time he will think twice on cheating with someone hopefully he learns something.

  • A CLEAN break would do him good. Seeing you and talking to you all of the time if not going to help matters.

  • First, you need to decide what is good for you. Then, if you decide not to be with him, and he's having a hard time with it...sorry, but thats his problem.

  • LOL! It's the cheater that always wants to come back. Tell him No. You've made your decision and that's his problem on getting over you. He should have thought about that before.

  • don't help him anything, u in his life won't help him get over you. stop picking up his calls and all that. After a couple months, if u want to be friends and you think he is over you contact him, but staying in his life won't help.

  • it sound like the only reason that you are considering getting back with him is a guilt feeling that he can't live without you. he'll be fine... i had an opportunity to get back together with an ex that i had a fantastic relationship with... the breakup happened because of a different demon than cheating, and for a long time we both just assumed we'd end up back together one day. however, the reality was that after spending some really nice time together as friends it was very obvious to me that he had at least as many isues as then and they annoyed me to the point of no longer even being able to continue to be friends. if you want him to get over you, break off contact. frankly i think it's less about you and more about his neediness and wanting to manipulate the situation. i'm sure you are wonderful, but if he had brains to figure that out he would never have cheated on you. leave it alone.

  • If he cheated on you, there's nothing left for you to go back to. If he can't be faithful to you once, what makes you think he'll be faithful again? He'll get over it eventually and you'll move on to someone better.
