i started a discussion a few days ago in regards to infidelity in a relationship. this conversation was spurred by another discussion where someone had said i was pretty much retarded for making the statement that most people do in fact cheat at one point in their lives. now.. i went a sneaky backhanded way to gather information to compile my own statistics into this theory.. because this person who made the claim i was retarded quoted very small numbers of some poll where people were asked if theyd ever cheated.. think about it.. are people REALLY gonna be honest about this if theyre lying cheaters?? it is just not logical to think they would be. SO.. i went the other direction.. people arent going to be upfront with the fact they were cheaters (altho ive gotta say a couple did admit to it openly and were honest, so my admirations to you people who were).. but people are more than willing to sing about being betrayed. out of the 12 who actually responded to the discussion (and where new comments canbe added at any time these findings are subject to change at any time without prior notice) 11 had been cheated on.. throw in myself as well that makes 13 total.. with only one of the people never having been cheated on (that she knew of id like to add) so 12 out of 13 significant others DID cheat.. thus raising that tiny little imma retard number up just a wee bit, granted i suxxor at math, but i do beleive thats about 99% of the people polled. thus ends my experiment into human nature. please feel free to comment at will or ignore this discussion entirely ..;nods;.

Let me just say, for the record, that I know where you are coming from. My mother boyfriend cheated on his first wife with many women and his excuse was that he was a man and that he could not help himself. I told him that he was a jerk and then said that I will find a man who is nothing like you because if my man ever cheated on me, he better hope that I do not get out the kitchen knife and kill him. No man cheats on me and gets away with it. You are right, a lot of people do cheat on their significant other, but not all people do. There are some people out there who are very loyal, they are few, but they are out there. I was never cheated on, but I know many people who have been. The person who called you "retarded" (I really hate that word) should check their facts because the percentage of people who have been cheat on is pretty high, and a lot of people are not honest in taking a survey about cheating.

ahh lets not confuse my outrage with this as my being a braburning fanatical.. because i am in no way a "feminist" not to say you ARE a bra burning fanatical.. well hell i hope you get my gist i firmly beleive that if a family hs children, that the womes place is in the home.. that her family`s well-being should always come first aside from her own wants of the freedom she might have had before she gave birth. it annoys me when women have their children just to toss them into a daycare center for strangers to raise simply because she wants to fullfill her own desires of working. BUT i also grew up in a household where females were considered second class citizens and held no worth other than to cook food and screw their perspective spouses (my father actually told me once "if you cant keep a man happy in the sack.. he will leave you" nice thing to teach yer baby girl huh? not worth anything but a f*ck... blah) and while i beleive it is my place as the mommy to tend my kids and my home.. i also know im worth way more than this a55hole is claiming women are useful for.

I have not come across that discussion yet, although I am still wading through the discussions left for me whilst away so no doubt will find it one day. All I have seen just lately are discussions about infidelity! I have been through it, I would never cheat, but have been cheated on, 2 years ago and I am still with him. Long and complicated, horrible story. I reckon most folks would not believe half of it. I keep saying that I am going to tell about it one of these days but it might be a little too long ha ha. I cannot believe someone called you retarded, that is really horrible!

Hi Tessa, I have also been cheated on by at least two partners in the past, I have had problems with my internet so missed initial discussion but will go in and find so that I can be added to the numbers. I actually have always been loyal in relationships so this hurt much more than if I had been a cheater myself I suppose eh! I did look at it like there must have been something wrong in the relationship though for this to have happened and talked it through as to why they did but I could never trust again so left them. Ellie :D
