Cupid’s Advice:

Cheating on a significant other is the ultimate betrayal of trust, so it’s important to get the facts before jumping to conclusions.  Cupid has some advice:

1. Approach the situation calmly: If you’re too quick to accuse your partner of cheating, you’ll destroy the relationship before hearing what your partner has to say about the allegations.  It could very well be some kind of miscommunication, so make sure to get the facts before letting your anger get the best of you.

2. Drop some hints: If you’re not comfortable simply bringing up the topic, drop some hints that there’s something important you need to discuss with your partner.  Usually a change in your usual routine will draw some curiosity.  That way, he’ll be prepared for the serious conversation.

3. Be prepared: There’s no doubt that cheating is not a pleasant conversation topic.  Make sure you’re prepared with the points you want to make before going into it, so you can get it all out right away.  This way, you can keep the topic to one discussion instead of multiples over time.
