3 Things Women Shouldn't Do After Their Man Cheats
What do you do when you find out your man's been cheating? If you decide to stay, how do you handle it? He promises he'll do better, so you decide to forgive him and stick around. This sounds much easier said than done.
It's going to take some time to get back on the same page you two left off, and it's going to be hard. To help avoid unnecessary stress in the rekindling stage of your relationship or in your mission to move on (for those who aren't staying), we provided a short list of what not to do if you ever find out your man has cheated.
Here are three things you DO NOT want to do after you've been cheated on...
1. Don't take your frustrations out on the side chick!
Some women tend to attack their man's mistress when they find out he's been cheating and pretty much let their men get away easily. That's a huge no-no, and it's a bit embarrassing! She has no ties to you, and she probably didn't even know you existed. Causing a huge scene, calling her all types of dirty names and trying to pull her hair out will get you nowhere. It's hard to believe that a man can't fight off a woman, so we doubt she forced him. Instead of coming for her, go after your man. He's the one who played you.
2. Don't snoop around!
We understand that it'll be hard to trust your man after you find out he's been cheating, but going through his belongings may not be the best solution to your problem. Instead of checking his phone and receipts, simply ask him what's up. If you don't trust what he says, you should probably just leave. What's a relationship without trust? It's already been broken on one end; let's not condone it. Plus, when you go looking for dirt, you become blinded by animosity. The slightest things, even if they aren't, start to look alarming the more you dig.
3. Don't become bitter
It's easy to forgive, but you'll probably never forget. No doubt, but don't let the past hinder you from moving forward in the future. If you can't shake your man's wrongdoings, remove yourself from the situation and don't let it eat you up. There are plenty more men out here in this world. Keep your head up and continue to live your lovely life, lady!
