One of the biggest regrets I have in my life is cheating on my boyfriend (now ex).
We dated for a long time and it was the best relationship I was ever in. We were happy, and everything was care free. We are both in college so sometimes we would let the stress of everything get the best of us, we'd fight, but it'd resolve within a couple of hours.
After two consecutively stressful months, he started to ignore me, treat me poorly, and he didn't prioritize me. I felt like I was nothing to him, I still loved him to death and I didn't want to leave.
When he was ignoring me, I would end up talking with other guys and this one guy I used to see all the time wanted to hang out and he brought happiness back into my life, he knew how to deal with stress.. But here's where I went wrong. I told the guy I was single so countless amounts of nights I would end up hooking up with him. He made me feel good unlike my boyfriend, but like I said I still loved my boyfriend at the end of the day.
My boyfriend at the time never found out and he still doesn't know.
This is the first time this has come out of me, not even my best friend knows.
Back on track, I stopped cheating for the last month of our relationship because I knew it was wrong and I wanted to work things out so bad. A couple more stressful weeks happened and he broke up with me. Worst pain in the world, because of my regret and at the end of the day I really did love him.
A lot of people ask "why do people cheat?"
The answer to that, is not thinking of the outcome.
I was treated horribly, and I backfired by cheating? See, there's no excuse.
Now I find out he's dating a new girl and the pain is even worse. Like what if I never did that? Would it be different?
Please think of your outcomes because you don't want to feel this kind of pain from a broken heart.
