Ever been so certain that your partner was cheating on you but they denied anyway?
Well, call it lame or whatever you like but asking whether your partner cheated on you is one of the most unreasonable things you would do.
You can decide to stay true if you really want to, and you respect your partner enough.
Part of the trick is to always remind yourself that you have someone special in your life, and you don’t need anybody else.
Below are lies you should stop believing if your partner is cheating.
It Only Counts As Cheating If Sex Is Involved
A lot of people do not understand cheating in-depth and they end up breaching the relationship even if the affair didn’t result in sexual contact.
Cheating comes in many forms besides sex, other behaviours such as sexting or emotional intimacy, it may include sharing your deepest thoughts or feelings with someone else. This is why you need to define with your partner what is considered as cheating in your relationship.
Making it Clear From the Start
It’s easier to point a finger at the cheater and blame them for betraying your trust. The unbelievable fact, however, is that there is a chance that you set yourself up for heartbreak by not clearly communicating your expectations with your partner from the beginning.
People are too scared to say, ‘I like you and don’t want you to be with anyone else.’
It’s important to be clear about what you need and expect from a partner. If they can’t give you the type of relationship you’re looking for, then your best bet is to move on before you get hurt.
People Only Cheat In Unhappy Relationships
Perfectly healthy, happy relationships are an easier target to having more cheating partners as opposed to troubled ones. There are different reasons for cheating, but affairs aren’t always a symptom of a relationship gone south.
In a relationship, one can become accustomed that they may need challenges in life; an impulse to feel alive.
Cheaters Never Change
Some people flirt with other lovers outside of a relationship, and this is one of the many mistakes people can make. However, many cheaters do see the error of their ways and change.
Cheaters Are Manipulative
Cheaters come in all shape, sizes, and personalities, which means they’re not always the relationship villains they are usually portrayed as.
Deep in their minds, they don’t feel worthy of a healthy relationship so the affair becomes an avenue to undermine and possibly destroy their partnership.
