Is Cheating Worth It?

Feel Like Cheating?  Think About it First.

You may be in a committed relationship, and you have been faithful – so far.  However, opportunity sometimes comes knocking on your door, and you are finding it harder to resist.  Perhaps you are contemplating cheating on your spouse or significant other.  Before you go wild with another man, consider the following things to determine if cheating on your man is actually worth it.

  1. Why Do You Want To?

If you have been completely faithful in your relationship for a while and suddenly you are thinking about cheating – you need to figure out what has changed in your relationship that has changed your mind about being faithful.  Is it boredom in the bedroom?  Do you need more attention?  These are things that could be fixed by talking to your man.  Make sure the reason you are thinking of cheating isn’t something that could so easily be fixed together.

 

  1. What Will You Gain?

Sure, sleeping with someone new will be fun – for the hour or two that it is going on.  However, what do you expect to get out of this experience?  What will you take away from that moment other than a big secret?  Will it make you more confident?  Will it make you a happier person?  Make sure that cheating on your partner is actually worth something other than a quick romp in the hay.

 

  1. Can You Keep a Secret?

Something you will definitely take away from the experience is a giant secret to keep from your partner.  Are you ready for that?  Keeping a secret from your partner can often ruin a relationship.  You will always be wondering if he found out.  You will feel guilty, and he will notice a change in your behaviour.   You may begin to question what he has done that you don’t know about – after all, he doesn’t know that you cheated.  It may lead to the end of your relationship anyway.

 

  1. What Are You Risking?

If your man does find out that you have been cheating on him – how is he going to react?  There’s a good chance your relationship will be over if he finds out. Is that worth risking? If he doesn’t end the relationship right away, rebuilding the trust is a long and gruelling process.  Decide if cheating is really worth the risks that you are taking with your relationship.  You can’t undo cheating once it’s done.
