When Cheating Happens
February 15, 2007 4:22am CST
Cheating happens when you start looking for what you dont have. Somewhere along the way, you will meet someone who will be more charming or sensitive than the one youre already with. more sexy. more thoughtful. wealthier. better in bed. and you will meet someone who will need you and pursue you and go loco over you more than your boyfriend/girlfriend ever did. because no boyfriend/girlfriend is perfect. because your boyfriend/girlfriend will only have 90 percent of what youre looking for. So, cheating happens when you look for the missing 10 percent. Lets say your girlfriend is melancholic by nature. You may find yourself drawn to the pretty girl next- door who has a cheerleader laugh no matter what she says: I broke my arm yesterday, ha ha ha... Or because your girlfriend is a couch potato who is always in pajamas and smelling of garlic and cooking oil, you may fall for the D&G-Light blue- smelling colleague who comes to work in a sharp pinstripe blazer, high heels, and a red pencil-cut skirt. Or because your boyfriend is the type who never shuts up even when youve tried using duct tape, your heart may skip a beat when you sit next to a brooding, mysterious Latino on the bus. but wait! Thats only 10 percent of what you dont have. Dont throw away the 90 percent that you already do! add to the 90 percent the 100 percent that represents all the time that you have been with each other. The storms you have weathered together. The many adjustments you have made to better understand each others little quirks and idiosyncracies. The wealth of memories that you have accumulated as lovers. The old sparks that can always be rekindled by the walk on the beach, barefoot and underneath the stars... Cheating happens when you start looking for what you dont have. but faithfulness happens when you start thanking God for what you already do.

If you find out that your partner is cheating on you, talk to him and confront him. Its best if you two talk and find out whats wrong. This way you can still fix your relationship. My boyfriend is kinda cheating on me(emotional infidelity), its kinda hard but Im talking to him soon.
