We aren’t going to launch into a guilt trip here. We won’t launch into a therapy session, examining WHY you and tons of other guys cheat, no. The reality is that you cheated and need to know what to do. We’re here for you, you ol’ dog, you! Here are our top tips to help you from a woman’s perspective.
#1 DON’T TELL HER.
I know, I know, deep down you’re a good guy who believes in honesty being the best policy. You have no idea what got into you and you don’t intend on cheating again. But honesty isn’t always the best policy if you intend on keeping your girl and not giving her a hang up in the meantime. It might make you feel better, but it will only hurt her. Guaranteed. Cheating is one of those situations where the “what she don’t know, won’t hurt her,” clause is warranted.
#2 DON’T TELL ANYONE
You feel guilty, too bad! The best way for word to get back to your girlfriend that you couldn’t keep your thing in your pants, is to tell a friend. I know you’re dying to get this off your chest. You might even want to brag a little bit about the hot piece you got – You must resist the urge to tell. Although, resisting urges is clearly not your strong point right now.
#3 THINK ABOUT IT
Now it’s time for some self-reflection. You gotta’ look inside yourself and figure out why you cheated in the first place. Are you not ready for a serious relationship? Are you bored? Typically, people cheat because there’s something lacking in the relationship. If there’s nothing lacking and you just “can’t help yourself,” you might have to cut your girlfriend loose. It’s not fair to have your cake and eat it too.
#4 WORK IT OUT
If you decide you want to stay in a relationship with your girl and this really was a momentary lapse in judgement (Ahem, Rupert Sanders & Kristen Stewart) – then it’s time to do the work. Ask for more of what you need, find ways to reinvigorate your relationship. Do what you gotta’ do to make sure you don’t cheat again. Only you know what that means.
