What is cheating: a thought, a glance, a touch, a kiss? If you are the cheater, there's a strong chance you'll know when you've cheated. And if you've been cheated on, you'll know that too.
Cheating is the betrayal of trust between two people, involving a third.
If it's you that has cheated, you need to own your actions and be clear with yourself about why you did it and how you feel. "Because I was drunk" is not a real answer. Even under the influence of alcohol, we still have the capacity to make choices. You might ask yourself:
- Are you unhappy in your relationship?
- Were you trying to make them jealous? If so, why?
- Deep down do you want your partner to find out so the relationship has a reason to end? If this is the case, maybe you need to end the relationship - the sooner the better.
If you still want your relationship to continue, think about why you cheated. In any case, you need to accept responsibility for your actions.
