Today, I’m specially going to be talking about the topic of cheating. I have a very simple philosophy on cheating: Don’t do it.
Here’s one of my pet peeves: when someone’s significant other leaves them for someone else or cheats on them and they blame the other person. This is extremely important and I need people to understand this: Your significant other cannot be “stolen” from you, they make a choice to leave you or to cheat.
Not sorry, cause that is the truth. If you attack the other person but allow your significant other full immunity in the situation, then you are enabling them and telling them that their actions are okay.
Also, there is no such thing as “cheating respectfully” if you’re cheating on someone you’re already disrespecting them. And don’t try to tell the person that you cheated on that you love them because if you did, you wouldn’t have cheated.
Let’s talk about the Ross and Rachel “on a break” situation shall we?
I was team Rachel for that. While I sort of get what Ross was saying (although I don’t agree), on a break or not: if you sleep with someone else right after we break up then I am not going to believe you if you say you love me. That’s just me, but here’s how I look at it. They hadn’t been broken up for long (Right? Correct me if I’m wrong) and Ross went through all that trouble to show Rachel how much he cared and fucked it all up in a second. He even had the other woman in his apartment when she was there. How disrespectful is that? I mean, really. I personally also think that “taking a break” and “breaking up” could mean two different things if it’s not communicated properly.
Now, let’s talk about Usain Bolt. He cheated on his girlfriend in Rio, multiple times. Apparently she gave him a “27 woman pass” which I quite frankly think is bullshit. If you have to give your significant other a “pass” and more importantly if they are willing to accept a “pass” then you need to be with someone else. All that says to me is that you’re willing to cheat on me and I don’t need that in my life.
All of this of course is my personal opinion, but to be honest I do feel like a lot of this should be common sense. But again, that’s just me.
