Is there anything worse than finding out you are being cheated on? Here, we discuss how to get over being cheated on in 12 ways, and how to move on.
Relationships are all about trust. When you agree to be in a monogamous relationship with someone, if you strip it back to basics, essentially what you are saying is, “I am not going to hook up with anyone else…”
If you find out your partner has cheated on you, it can take a long time to feel like you can trust someone again, and can have a serious affect on your future relationships.
The scope of cheating
Of course, there are varying degrees of cheating. You may have only been officially going out for a month or so, and it might have been once—a drunken kiss in a night club—and your partner might have told you about it straight away.
At the other end of the spectrum, it may be that you are married, and they have been having a long-lasting affair for months, even years, and would have continued to do so if you hadn’t caught them.
All cheating is wrong, and regardless of the circumstances, it is going to hurt. But perhaps not all of it is unforgivable.
