Usually, cheating happens in the spur of the moment, but if you’re actively searching out other people when you’re in a relationship, it’s clear to see you’re extremely unhappy.
Instead of acting rash and doing something you’ll end up regretting figure out the reason you want to cheat and go from there. You’re better than that; everyone’s better than that, and no one deserves to be cheated on so before you act on your urges consider these three options.
Having A Big Talk:
Confrontation can be intimidating, but it’s a part of life and should be a part of every healthy relationship. If you’re not talking about things and letting the relationship deteriorate itself, then you’re just wasting everyone’s time.
Put your big boy pants on, or girls, and confront the relationship and why you feel like you might want to explore other options. You might be surprised that your partner feels the same way and it’s just not going to work out.
Having the talk could give you the realization you want to work it out or simply part ways. At least you were being honest about your feelings and taking the mature route in the breakup.
“Absence makes the heart grow fonder” or the time apart is fantastic, and you want it to be permanent. There’s nothing wrong with giving each other space to figure out how you feel before pursuing someone else.
You might realize how much your partner holds you back and you want to call it quits or the complete opposite. You might have an epiphany of how much you love them and want to work things out.
It doesn’t matter if your partner hates this idea, it could end up saving the relationship or saving valuable time when figuring out the right decision.
Calling it Quits:
You can’t have your cake and eat it too. If you’re seriously considering getting with someone else just call it quits and start the chaos of a breakup sooner rather than later.
It doesn’t matter what you do once you’ve acknowledged that the relationship is over and are upfront with it. It’s not fair if you think it’s over but the other person still has hope. Be honest with them and yourself about your relationship.
Don’t give yourself the title, ‘once a cheater always a cheater’ and self-sabotage your chances with people in the future. Give your partner the same decency you would hope they would give to you and go about it as mature as you can.
Don’t’ act on impulse and create a big mess out of something that can easily be rationalized. You have three options that can give you an out while keeping your dignity intact.
I’m all about leaving a relationship when you’re unhappy but not because there is another person involved.
