Do you believe in a sixth sense? Has your gut ever told you to check your mate's text messages?
What do you do when you find evidence that there is someone else? Do you fight for your relationship, let it go or get a measure of revenge?
Here's a cautionary tale.
C and her boyfriend seemed to have a great relationship. She trusted him, but lately she had been feeling distance between them. So, Sunday night when he was in her bed sleeping, she went into the sitting room of her place and opened his cell phone. She flipped through his text messages and her heart dropped to the bottom of her feet.
There was a picture of some chick's cleavage and another picture of a woman saying, "Guess who." Then there was a text message to his ex boasting that he was seeing five women. Disgusted, C didn't do anything. She was shocked and hurt. She climbed into bed and cuddled up beside him. All night, she had thoughts of smothering him with a pillow and doing other things to hurt him. Instead, she had sex with him.
She said it was her last time being with him, but then she realized that she would be throwing away two years of a "good thing."
But how good was it for him to seek out other women and to keep a relationship with his ex? I told C she should cut her losses and move on, but she said that finding someone decent in Charlotte is hard.
So I had to ask her, do you think Mr. Cheater is decent? A good mate doesn't cheat.
C agreed, but said she thinks the relationship can be saved. But is it even worth saving since she knows he's a cheater?
