Being betrayed by the person you love can be earth-shattering. But what happens when you’re the one who did the betraying.
If you cheat on your man, you will find yourself in a position where you need to make certain decisions. The goal is not to make the wrong ones.
Figure out the nature of the infidelity
One of the first things you need to do is to figure out if this was a one-time thing or you’ve actually fallen in love with your affair partner. Hence, you must understand and face the gravity of what you just did.
Do you want to save your relationship
When you cheat on your man, this is one of the most crucial questions to ask yourself. Are you done with your partner, or do you want to save that relationship?
Why did you do it?
If you’re done with the relationship, it makes sense that you may want to do something to sabotage it. However, if you still love your partner, then why did you do it? This is where you take a deep look at your relationship to figure out if you strayed because something is missing.
Talk to your man
Now you know why you strayed, and whether or not you want to work on rebuilding the relationship. You need to talk to your partner. He deserves to know you’ve cheated even if you want to break up. However, if you want to hold on, then be ready to confess and accept the consequences.
Tell him how sorry you are but you must never blame him. No matter what issues there are in your relationship, cheating is always a coward’s way out. So take full responsibility when you cheat on your man. Sincerely ask for his forgiveness. He will very likely be upset and may need a little time to deal with this news. Give him what he needs and answer whatever questions he may have.
Ensure you give him plenty of space and if unfortunately, he wants to break up, accept this consequence as well.
