What to say to a cheater

There is nothing worse than finding out that someone you love has cheated on you. It really makes you question what is your life is actually real, was everything your partner did a lie?

Tiffany had been dating an airline pilot she met at work for two years. Amir was a fun guy, he was always the life of the party, and everybody just loved him. At first, Tiffany had reservations dating someone of another culture, but she took the risk, and she had never been happier. In fact, Amir had kept bringing up the topic of getting married for the last six months.

One day out of the blue, Amir called her up and told her that he was getting married. It was an arranged marriage, and he has been planning the marriage for several months. He was leaving next week for the wedding, and he was going to bring his new bride back to the US.

Tiffany was beyond devastated and felt like a fool in front of all of their work colleagues. If he had known that he was going to have an arranged marriage and had a wife picked out, couldn’t he at least have thought to mention it! She was disgusted and betrayed, and could not believe how sneaky and underhanded he was. After two years together, she deserved at least to be told the truth before everything happened.

Nothing can make what the cheater did to you OK. You may want to know why they cheated on you, but try not to drive yourself crazy over thinking everything or blaming yourself.

If you want to take some of your power back, and let the cheater know that they are a total jerk, use one of our clever comebacks below.

  5. People don’t cheat by chance they cheat by choice.

        1. Bc this is mainly a site for girls. Bc we are utter bitches half the time and we feel like when we are in a bad mood everyone else should be too and we can’t think for our selves so need a site to give us out comebacks.

  1. OOh! I got one too!
    Roses are red, violets are blue, I know you love me, and I love you too!
    Aww, thank you!
    But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, I’ve found you’ve been cheating, Ill knock off your head!
