I have never cheated, I am just curious to see a poll of how many people this affects. Also, if you’ve cheated and you’re afraid to tell someone, feel free to vent here. Maybe it will feel better at least letting someone know even if they’re complete strangers. If you have cheated, did you end up telling your partner?

I have not- I always manage to end the relationship before moving on…

Never have, never will. It goes against my morals.

I cheated on an ex-bf. I blame it on being young and stupid. I wanted to get him back for cheating on me, when in reality, I should have just ended things. It was a terrible relationship without all the cheating.
That was the only time though. I could never do it now.

I’m actually surprised at how many people have never cheated.

I cheated on a boyfriend in high school. I was away from him on a trip for a week, and was using that week to decide whether to break up with him. I decided to do it, but hadn’t told him yet. Ended up kissing another guy who had been hotly pursuing me all week.
I told him. He wanted to stay together anyway. That was a hard breakup because he was so difficult to convince. But we really were not right for each other. And we were teenagers. :3
(Pretty tame story haha, but since I’m one of those virgin-till-marriage girls that about as naughty as it gets for me!)
I don’t worry about “once a cheater always a cheater” because that was old history and I was not entirely matured at the time. I’ve never had the smallest inkling to even flirt unfaithfully since, although I’ve had many, many guys give me the opportunity since I met FI.

Nope. Never. Couldn’t imagine it.

Not sure if this counts as cheating. It was so long ago and I was only 19. I was with my high school boyfriend and things weren’t going well. He went on a trip for 2 months I think, and around that time I started a new job. A guy I worked with wooed me, and before I knew it, we were kissing and doing even more. I decided to end the relationship w. my high school guy since clearly I wasn’t happy. I waited a few weeks until he was about to come home, though, since I didn’t want to ruin his trip. I did the cowardly thing and ended it via email. I since apologized to him (and his mom who was like a second mom to me at the time).
I’ve never stayed in a relationship and pretended everything was ok, though. In the situation I just described I was being distant, I just didn’t want to ruin his trip or I would have broke up with him right away.
At another time I was seeing a guy on/off and saw another guy at the same time, but I don’t think that’s cheating either since we weren’t technically in a relationship at the time.

@daybyday: really? I feel like it’s pretty consistent with statistics on cheating. I have never cheated, I can’t imagine cheating on my FI. I’ve even been in a lot of positions where it would have been really easy, and never wanted to.

Never. If I did, I couldn’t live with myself.

I voted never, but I wonder how many other statistics play into this (i.e. long distance, other partner had cheated, peer/family pressure, etc) as opposed to just being tempted and giving in.
