Obviously you don’t have to answer if you cheated, just vote! You also don’t even have to get deep into explaining how you were cheated on if you don’t want to. I just want to see the percentage of women who cheated vs those who experienced cheating by men.
Also, an interesting article: 22% of married men cheat, apparently. 14% of women also cheat, but are much more likely to be younger than older when they do so. In fact, it says younger woman are just as likely to cheat as younger men!

I have never cheated, and as far as I know of, have never been cheated on. The only time I thought I’d come close, when I really found myself attracted to someone who was not my boyfriend, was in college, and I had enough sense to at least break up with the current boyfriend before pursuing the new guy. I just see no reason not to attempt to be way decent to one another!

My ex cheated on me and lied about it for a month even after being confronted multiple times. They’re now engaged. They deserve each other though.

I have never cheated and I’ve never caught someone cheating. There was once I thought my ex cheated on me but he denied it. After-the-fact I’m pretty sure that he did, but I’ll never know for sure.

I have been cheated on before by an ex…it was horrible. It was an LDR and he was a man-whore. I even told him I loved him. UGH! Jerks…
I’m so glad to have Fiance 🙂

I think I was cheated on in my last relationship although he said he didn’t. But you do the math – we split up at New Year, by the February he told me he was dating, they got engaged in the June and got married in the October. Prat ha ha.

I cheated on my first boyfriend (from high school) when I first went away to college. I was 17/18 and stupid. I have also been cheated on by a past boyfriend.

I have cheated & been cheated on – this was in HS and are “relationship” was hardley serious, so we were just young and foolish.

I’ve caught an ex cheating. It was really sad b/c he was my first love and we had been dating for 3.5 years. Went to separate colleges, but vowed to stay together. Two weeks into school I ‘caught’ him cheating since his roomate told me where he was, in another girls dorm room, and gave me her #. I was crazy enough to call at the time and caught them in the act.
AS far as me cheating, I’ve technically cheated. I hate to say it because it wasn’t sneaky low down dirty cheating like you’d imagine. I just was in a bad relationship about 2 weeks too long and it took me hooking up with another guy (DH) to end it. I’m not proud of the sequence of events, but I was young and stupid and very weak.

Pretty dire.. so far 41 percent have been cheated on, and 7 percent suspected that.. almost half if you combine them together. =(

I’ve been cheated on several times. My ex of three years did it openly and his parents were completely fine with it. I was just the controlling bitch because I got upset he’d go spend time with the other girl.

I have both cheated and been cheated on. I was in a LDR with a guy when I was 18 and for our whole relationship I had that gut feeling that something wasn’t right. I’d caught him talking to other girls and so I had my “friend” who he didn’t know start flirting with him on chat and see what he did. Wellll she told me that he didn’t say/do anything inappropriate. I snooped, found their chat conversations and found out that they had been talking a lot and meeting up and being completely inappropriate. I ended both relationships. He’s the only guy I’ve ever cheated on. I won’t make excuses because it wasn’t the right thing to do at all.
I was also always a girl with a back up plan in my past relationships. Even if I didn’t “cheat” I would have another guy “friend” who I knew could potentially be more and I’d stay in contact because I knew that my (then) current relationship wouldn’t last. I’m not proud of that fact at all. FI is the first person who I’ve been with with whom I haven’t felt any need to have a back up person. He’s the right one!
