Have you ever dated someone who cheated in a previous relationship?
Or have you ever been cheated on and wondered if they would cheat again?
Today we’re going to dive into the concept of “Once a cheater always a cheater” and whether the statement holds true.
Once a cheater always a cheater.. Will they cheat again? | Relationship Advice
From my experience, it all depends on the circumstances of the situation.
If I dated someone who cheated on a person before me, that didn’t necessarily mean they’d cheat again.
However some guys that did cheat in past relationships did cheat while others remained faithful.

Now when it comes to whether someone who cheated on you will cheat on you again…?
Well… I’ll be honest, every time I’ve been cheated on and taken the person back.. they cheated on me again.
Whether it was a few weeks or a couple months later, they cheated again.
The logic is that if you accept someone back into your life that cheated on you they will think that it’s okay to cheat again subconsciously.
It’s almost like they’ll think..
“Well since they allowed me to cheat on them once before, they’ll still stay with me and stick beside me if I cheat on them again. They’ll be fine if I do something with someone else. I know they won’t leave.”
This is where the statement, “You get what you allow” comes into play.
If someone cheats on you once, in my opinion it’ll happen again.
However it also depends on the type of cheating that was done.
For example, if your significant other sleeps with someone else… they will FOR SURE sleep with someone else again.
I could never comprehend someone actually taking the time to take their clothes off and sleep with someone knowing they’re in a whole relationship.
There is no coming back from that.

If someone cheats on you by kissing someone else, there is a possibility that they won’t cheat on you again… but there are other factors like who did they kiss and the emotional involvement they have with this person?
Emotional cheating is the last factor.. because a lot of people emotionally cheat and don’t even realize they’re doing it which could cause big problems for your relationship.

Overall, if someone cheats once… I honestly feel like it’d be best to let the relationship go.
I know I tried to give people who cheated on me the benefit of the doubt that they wouldn’t do it again and I blindly trusted them again without obsessing over if they’d do it again.
They did it again without fail.
I eventually realized that if someone cheats, they don’t respect our relationship or me.
They didn’t think or consider how what they did would affect our relationship which is important if you’re trying to have a long lasting relationship with someone.
You should want to be with someone who actually considers how what they do would make you feel at the end of the day.
