Cupid’s Advice:

Whenever the word “cheating” is thrown around, hearts break and heads heat. Even if it’s unjust gossip, the insinuation is hard to accept. There are so many ways to approach the situation and, more than likely, you’re  not in the proper emotional state to pick the best option. Check out some options below:

1. Approach your partner calmly: Nothing ever gets accomplished when someone loses emotional control. Before you confront your suspect, make sure that you are in the proper headspace to speak rationally. This also gives you the upper hand. You cannot be accused of blowing something out of proportion or being overly dramatic if you’re cool and collected.

2. Choose your words: When confronting a person about a sensitive issue, be careful of any buzzwords that could set the person you’re talking to off. Be assertive with your word choices without being aggressive. You don’t need the word “cheat” in the conversation to know what’s going on.

3. Decide to love or leave: Sometimes, there are extenuating circumstances that drive the people we love to cheat. There will be more to the story than just infidelity. If your partner is truly remorseful, you believe he’ll never stray again, and you do still love him dearly; it’s okay to stay. Otherwise, you must make a firm to decision to leave and stay gone no matter how difficult it may be. A true cheater never changes.
