Dating men who have been cheated on
On the other hand, my wife was cheated on by her ex-husband and other long-term ex-boyfriends.
How she managed to trust me, even when she found a pair of panties in our new hamper after a business trip, is beyond me.
There is no pain quite as devastatingly horrendous as that of heartbreak. You will insist on being treated the way you deserve to be treated.
That pain is only exponentially magnified if that heartbreak was the result of being cheated on. To have someone you have given your heart to be unfaithful is like having your beating heart ripped from your chest with a pair of loose pliers. After all of the trials, the love you will find later down the road will only be that much deeper, resilient and stable.
These are six things you learn about love only after you've been cheated on: It's hard to believe a love you were invested in so fully could not be permanent. It's easy to compare yourself to another person and wonder what YOU did wrong in the relationship to make your partner step out.
Being cheated on will make you jaded to the term “forever.”You will realize not every relationship is going to be THE relationship. Love is a beautiful thing, but it is not impenetrable. It is a slippery slope that can leave you tear-stained and empty.
You may be shocked, and you will be horrified by what people are able to do to others.
Unfortunately, his ex-wife cheated on him, and married her lover the day after their divorce was final.
I just wanted to know, in a general way, what does it take for a man to get over being cheated on by an ex-wife, particularly if it has been many years now, and he still seems to be putting up walls?
You second-guess people because you don't want to get burned. Those who have your trust have proven they are worthy of it. Love is powerful, but with just love alone, you won't survive. After being backstabbed and left for dead, you will learn just what you are capable of. If you can come out the other end of a serious trauma and continue on with your life, you are the one has won the war.
There is a lengthy education only life can give us. You may have been battered, but you will never be broken. Being cheated on is devastating, but it will not destroy you.
This person broke your heart; he or she is not deserving of your anger, only your pity.
