If you know someone is cheating on their significant other, would you do anything about it?
Depends on if the cheater is more my friend than the cheated. If the cheater is my friend, I would tell him/her to go tell his/her significant other to go make things right before something bad happens. If my friend was the cheated I would still probably say the same thing to the cheater but I would also warn the cheated without blatantly telling him/her.
I actually faced this problem once. A guy in the group of friends I use to hang out with was always cheating on his fiance, I finally got tired of it and made the mistake mentioning to other friends I was going to tell her. One of my former friends decided to tell the cheater what I was about to do, and before I knew it I had roughly 10 angry people to contend with standing in front of me.
Lets just say I wasn't able to tell her. =-P
That's ridiculous that someone would have the audacity to confront you for taking a stand against the wrong this friend of yours was doing. Did she ever find out some other way? I'm sorry, that just irks me that people can be so stupid sometimes.
No idea if she ever found out, I stopped associating myself with them after that. Yeah, believe me I was pretty surprised when they all showed up to confront me, because most of these people I knew for close to 10 years. =-P
That's so sad, I'm sorry to hear that. What did they do? Threaten you somehow? Was it guys and girls together? I hate this generation and their mixed views of right and wrong.
Just group of guys that I use to hang out with. An argument that eventually led to a fist fight. Technically its a life lesson to learn not to associate with those type of people before those things happen.
Wow, what a bunch of douchebags, I'm so sorry again. UGH I feel heated over this for you lol anyways, i'll stop bugging you. I just don't why guys want to have a gf, just to cheat on them...doesn't make sense and it's not fair. God bless, dude
Well, you should have kept yor nose out of your friend's business, then you wouldn't have had that problem.
Actually being as I work out like crazy and have combat training; It was more of a problem for them MickS. I don't need your advice on how to do things, I can take care of myself. =-P
So, you do combat training and work out, so what, that is not an excuse for you to poke your nose into other people's busines. I wasn't giving advice, you complained about the confrontation, I answered the cause of the confrontation.
Obviously you've never had a job before, because when people have affairs it actually is everyone's business, which is why people get fired. Same as in a group where someone doesn't hide what he's doing. He makes it everyone's business. Grow-up.
Why should T, it's none of my business...........................
Discovering someone cheating often poses some sticky situations and ethical dilemmas. Before taking action, you need to think through the issues involved. This article reviews some of the important issues to consider in those situations. read more
The problem is of course that people shoot the messenger.
However, if I was being cheated on and everyone knew but me, I would find that humiliating and I would want my friends to tell me.
So if I knew someone was cheating, I would do what has already been suggested and confront the cheater, but if that didn't produce a result, I might try to find some way of helping the cheated person find out - unless they were one of those people who prefer to have their head in the sand. It's a diplomatic minefield, though. It's better if he/she can find out for themselves.
Confronting the cheater is fine, but confronting the person who's being cheated on is trickier. Personally, I would not do it unless I had first tried talking to the cheater AND the victim was a close friend or family member. By not saying anything to anyone, you allow a situation where one person can become exposed to STDs that their cheating partner picks up. It's a health issue too.
It's true that people tend to shoot the messenger, but then again people will also hold a grudge against anyone who kept that secret from them. Can you imagine how you would feel if your spouse was cheating on you and all your friends knew but kept their mouths shut? You probably wouldn't be friends with them anymore.

If someone is cheated on why does it always seem like the cheater blames the other for it?On many of my relationships I have been cheated on, then they go and proceed to act like it was my fault. Guaranteed I am not perfect but who is?

If you answered yes, then you may want to change your mind. It will only cause heartache and a broken friendship. I told one of my closest friends that her boyfriend was cheating on her and now we're no longer close. It hurts my heart because I didn't want to tell her but, the person he was...
