Moving on is never an easy thing to do, but when the relationship and love ends due to infidelity, it’s even harder. In a new Oxygen Media reality TV series titled Player Gets Played, each week, one woman with a lurking suspicion uncovers the heartbreaking reality that she is not the only love in her boyfriend’s life. Once these ladies discover the truth, they join together to teach their “player” boyfriend a lesson. In our exclusive celebrity interview, four of the stars of the show open up about being cheated on and building trust with a new partner.

Reality TV Stars Open Up About Dating After Infidelity in Exclusive Celebrity Interview

Brittany, Meghan, Nyira, and Jessica all have one thing in common: Their boyfriends cheated on them, and now, they have to open themselves up to love again. “After being cheated on, it took me awhile to finally move on and give someone a chance to even walk up and talk to me,” Brittany shares. “I am still not in the right ‘place’ to get back into a relationship.”

While Brittany wanted to take some time before entering a new relationship and love, Nyira was ready to jump right back in. “It took me about a month to move on,” she says. “I couldn’t allow myself to dwell in that hurt. I just prayed, forgave, and let it go.”

Once you move on, though, there’s still a long way to go. Meghan and Jessica both understand that trusting a new partner isn’t as easy as it used to be. “I’ve moved on, but I don’t let down my walls, and I’ve become more difficult to penetrate mentally, physically, and emotionally,” Jessica shares in our exclusive celebrity interview. “I find that, with a new partner, he has to love me more. I know how to love and be faithful in a relationship, so if he loves me more, then I feel like we’re equal. I don’t think he’ll cheat because he appreciates me more than just in a physical sense.”

Meghan also learned that she no longer trusts as easily. “I actually don’t let my walls down so quickly,” she explains. “I always trusted any guy, but now, I don’t trust someone until it is earned.”

While trusting a new partner after infidelity isn’t easy, it’s important not to judge every relationship based on previous ones. “If I go into another relationship expecting to be cheated on, then it’s going to happen!” Jessica says. “Our thoughts create action. The thing is, you can never tell. You just need to give every person their own blank piece of paper and let them have a fresh, untainted start.”

Brittany also believes that you need a clean slate in order to build a new flame. “Once you start dating, you have to let your guard down a little, or you will never know if there is a connection between you and the other person,” she shares.

No matter what, you have to keep taking chances. When asked about their best love advice, these reality TV stars encourage you to be patient. “You can’t go your entire life being scared to love,” Nyira says. “Yes, you may get hurt, but you will grow stronger from it. Then one day, that special man that you have been dreaming about will come and sweep you off your feet. Those walls will slowly come down until there is a heart full of love, ready to meet another. Once those two hearts meet, a beautiful love will blossom.”
