If you love the person it should help guide you on what path you should take. If your cheating partner shows no signs of changing or being sorry, you should breakup. But if you feel inside you can trust the person again in the long run, then you shouldn't. This is a big decision that you should decide on your own. Follow your instincts. Don't feel the need to stay with the person just because you fear being alone. There are so many people out there that won't cheat on you and could potentially be a better boyfriend/girlfriend.
Cheating on someone is never okay, if someone cheats on you it means that for a split second they weren't thinking about your feelings. You deserve better
It depends on how intimate you two were. If it's possible for you two to talk it out by yourselves, figure out why it happened then go for it. If that isn't an option, try therapy, and if that doesn't work, maybe you two weren't meant to be.
It depends. Do you want and can you forgive her? Is it worth it? If so, make a new start and be happy. If not, break up.
Definitely. Once a cheater always a cheater. Plus I don't think you can love two persons at the same time.
It really depends do you think you can have a chance with this relationship or you think you should see other people it's up to you.
I would say in this situation, you should break up with that guy. Because, if you will not do this, you can't be happy in your life.
The best thing to do is talk through the situation and decide on whether you can trust that person enough to go forward. Always do what makes you happy, do not follow through with something if you are unhappy or unsure.
That all depends on why they did it and how much you trust them. I would usually say yes unless there are very specific circumstances.
Yes. You deserve better than that, especially is you have given him/her more than one chance. Once a cheater, always a cheater.
Not necessarly. maybe you can both sit down and talk about what happen to see if there is anyway of forgiving each other to move your relationship futher
Yes you should. A cheating partner will always cheat no matter how many chances you give them. Only 1/15 second chances work out
ask your self what you want, talk each other about the reason why he\she cheated on you. take your time , forgivness is always the hardest part
You should talk it first. But if he or she cheated again, then make a move. Its stupidity if you consider it again
My answer is yes, because they might take it to advantage that you didn't break up with them the first time you cheated, so they might cheat again; knowing you're not going to break up.
First, you should have an honest conversation. Forgive, but don't forget. You deserve so much better.
In this type of situation it is completely up to you. Once your significant other cheats it's really hard for them to earn your trust back. But, if you want to be with this person and you are willing to work through it with them then, do just that. Good luck! :)
If you feel that you two can't recover from it, then the relationship should end. If you're willing to work it out with your partner and try trusting them again, you should do what's best for you and take baby steps
Well i think breaking up is not the solution. Until you know that he is acutally really sorry for what he/she did. If they are asking for a second chance and really loves you. Then you should give it to them
That all depends on how you feel about the situation. Honesty and trust are one of the most important things to have in a relationship - along with communication. If you have a feeling that he / she can't be trusted or honest with you, then that will probably hurt you even more in the end. Sometimes cheating can be worked out - everyone makes mistakes. But if it's brought up later on in a fight or a repeat action, it could become unhealthy.
That would be entirely your decision I cant make that for you. It's something you will have to decide on
Yes, you should.If they did it once, they would do it again.A relationship is based on mutual respect above all else and if they have cheated on you it means they don't respect you enough.
Depends on your situation. If you are willing to work with them and still love them, there is no reason to break up, but maybe a break is needed.
This always depends on the type of your relationship and your personal feelings. I think there is no defnitly answer to this question. But you should defnitly speak with your partner about the incident.
I believe you should. Absolutely no one is worth being disrespected and deserves to feel that way. There is always someone who will treat you better!
a relationship is a bond or a link made with trust once its broken you have lost the relationship theirs no meaning of braking up after that
I think you need to double check, maybe triple check, that that's what exactly happened. After that, talk it through and decide what is best for you
There is no general rule, because it depends on so many things. Every situation is unique, every relationship is unique, every love is unique. So There is no should. It is a betrayal of your confidence, yes, but the why's, the how"s, and everything else matters immensely. So talk about it, and think about it sincerely within yourself, and whatever decision you end up with is okay. Forgiveness is not weakness, and breaking up is not coldness or hard-heartedness. Just make sure the decision is comming from within you, and that you"ve taken the time to listen to your partner. Be kind. Be empathetic. And Love and value yourself.
Yes, cheating is never accepted and if you forgive one time it might happen again, even when it does not the feeling of trust if lost forever.
Sadly, absolutely. Once the trust is gone from a relationship there's only the slimmest chance in the best relationships that it'll return. It'll be a hard lesson to learn but prolonging the relationship otherwise will only lead to more suffering in the long term.
