    I'd be hurt, whinny, angry and jealous.  I'd most likely cry right there in front of him so he knows how hurt he made me.  I'm not much on the pride thing.  You hurt me and you're going to know about it. Then if he wants to make up, we'd talk and I'd find out what the cheating was all about.  With time, I'd see if the relationship was worth saving or if this is just the begining of a bad relationship and move on.  Smile!

    I would end the relationship. My take is if it's a "serious relationship" then I give it my all. Therefore if my partner/mate or spouse were to cheat on me there is nothing different I could have done. If your best wasn't good enough what's left to try? There is nothing to do but say good-bye. (in my opinion)
    As for "forgiveness" - "Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me!" Cheating which is (betrayal/lying and putting one's mate at risk for Stds...etc) is one of my hardcore "deal breakers". There are no "second chances".

    For me it would be a deal breaker. I don't think it would matter how long we had been together.
    I might feel differently if it happens but I doubt it. I am one of those people who is built with a switch. When it is on I will do anything for my love but if it gets turned off it can never be turned back on. I am the same way with friendship do me wrong 1 time and it is over. I don't really have control over it, it is just how I am wired.

    this is a very personal question, and the answer depends upon the situation.  I was recently cheated on by a long term boyfriend.  There are no excuses, but I accepted that he was intoxicated and did not intend to hurt me.  It has been several months and I am still working on it.  I think it depends upon the individual and the relationship

    I think it is totally dependent on the relationship.  If someone cheats there has to be a reason that the person cheated.  Maybe the relationship has been on some seriously rocky slopes, maybe the trust has disappeared, maybe the respect has disintegrated.  While some may blame intoxication, there is a deeper reason; the alcohol just amplifies the reasoning and decreases the judgement of the individual.

    If I were cheated on, I would do my best to forgive and forget.  It would be extremely hard and it would take time to rebuild the trust platform, but I believe I would be able to overcome it with my significant other.  If it happened a second time, then I would definitely be out the door.
