There are a lot of questions on here about guys...But how many of you have cheated? Honesty!

I'm kind of tired of seeing only posts on here about "I know my guy is cheating but how do I move on?" or "How do you catch a cheater?"

PLEASE don't come to this discussion saying "women that cheat are whores" and "cheaters are all going to hell". Because frankly, I'm sick of that talk.

I know some of you out there have cheated. Lets hear from some of you...

I'll go first.

I've cheated...a lot. Not on my current SO but before when I dated guys just so I wouldn't be alone. I was immature and I admit it. I'm surprised I never got caught.

Part of my reason back then was because after the honeymoon phase wore off they confessed that they just weren't really attracted to me. Which made me feel awesome BTW! : /

So when I felt awesome I would look for someone that I could flirt with to make me feel better. And flirting usually turned into infatuation and then sex.

Why didn't I just leave?" you might ask. Because I wasn't sure that I wanted to be with the person I was cheating with and because I had grown comfortable in the reliability of my relationship at the time.

  • I have never cheated just for me its an honor thing and if I feel the need to cheat I know where the door is. I pass no judgement on people who have cheated I think this is not my place.

  • I don't cheat. I don't judge people who have either. I just stay away from guys who do.

  • Ive never cheated but have come close before. I feel that if youre not happy then why cheat when you could just leave? I know its not that easy for many ppl and I dont judge those that stray. I only judge when it effects me! lol I def dont want to be taking aids/std tests just because my dh isnt attracted to me or feels "neglected"

  • I have not cheated on my husband but I have cheated in the past. I have never experienced this level of love and commitment before and that's what keeps me faithful. When I was younger I would cheat if I wasn't getting what I need from my partner, now I'm more mature.

  • When I was in my early 20s I had two boyfriends over lap... yes that would fall under cheating.

  • Thanks everyone. And thank you for not everyone posting ANON. I just felt the need to break up the male bashing discussions in the relationship section and everyone sounding so judgmental.
