I have recently started seeing this guy that I met. He treats me better than any guy I have ever dated and I am really happy with him. We have been dating 2 months now and so I have started asking questions about his past. He is divorced with 2 kids (which I already knew) and the topic of cheating came up.
I asked him if he ever cheated on anyone and he said that he has and it was karma. That he had never been more hurt than when he was cheated on and he would never ever be able to do it again because it hurt so bad and that he now knows how it feels. I then asked why he was divorced and he said that he cheated on his wife, he was dumb and he doesn't have an excuse. That it was a mistake he made that could not be forgiven.
I have to be honest that this does make me scared, as I have been cheated on before and I never want to feel like that again. But my question is, do I continue seeing this guy who has made me so happy or is this a deal breaker?
In my heart, I don't think he would cheat on me. This did happen 8 years ago and I do believe that some people can change. Because he cheated he lost everything, his wife, his home, his kids and he now knows what it feels like to be cheated on (by an ex-girlfriend). Do you believe in Redemption and that people can really change? I just want to know everyone's thoughts.
