If you thought that your spouse/significant other was cheating what would you do?

  1. Nothing I trust them completely.

  2. Hire a private investigator to follow them.

  3. Confront them about your suspiscions.

  4. Go into to a frenzy until they tell you the truth.

  5. Pretend like nothing happened.

  6. Do the same as them and cheat with someone.

    Uh, take up drinking, take a few too many sedatives, trigger a seizure that breaks my back and fail out of university.

    True story.

    I would confront him.

    But then again, I'm naturally a confrontational person.

    Contront them, but then again I have such experiences with being lied to, why would I believe them?
    I also have a tendency to invade online accounts and chat logs when I'm really fucking paranoid.
    I'm never usually paranoid about cheating though, usually other things.

    I had my suspicions somewhere around the 2-3 year mark...
    I asked him what was going on and he assured me that he wasn't doing anything bad-- he just needed some space and time with his friends. Things were changing and he was having trouble coping with his homelife; so I didn't blame him.

    After being with him for 7 years, I probably wouldn't have even cared if he cheated on me. I was always more prone to talking things over and resolving problems/working on the relationship than pointing fingers and yelling and screaming... -___- that's probably why he did such a crappy stunt when he decided he wanted to break up with me. Because I would've convinced him to keep working on it- but he wanted nothing to do with me, I guess.

    I don't know about my next relationship. If I do ever make it that far and decide to start dating again, I guess I won't know what I'd do if I thought he might be cheating on me- until the time came.
    I do own a baseball bat-- but it's reserved to smashing zombie heads in, not bad boyfriend's cheating faces.

    been there - done that...

    I would investigate myself because I couldn't afford a PI..

    what I did was ask him and of course he lied and I believed him...until a friend told me what he was up to...apparently everyone knew but me
    so then I went on an investigation....straight to the other woman...

    Oh man! ...being cheated on nearly killed me..

    I did think of a bug in his phone and in hindsight should've done it...

    If I suspected, and we were in an agreed monogamous relationship ..I'd ask that person about it, see why they did it and what was bothering them at the time. TBH it isn't a big deal to me if that person wasn't deeply in love and in a relationship with someone and they said they felt the same way about me, I'd be hurt/confused and thinking WTF is going on.. :mellow: But if it was some drunken bullshit one night stand then really it doesn't matter.

    Talk about it, decide what they want to do. Call it quits if that's what they want if not forgive them. If I love someone I am willing to forgive a mistake. If they want to continue to do so then I would leave them.

    Stalk them until I have proof [photos, videos, etc.] then confront.
    Or hire the personal investigater and get proof then confront.

    I don't trust people as it is, especially women in an intimate situation like that. I have no desire to ever be in an intimate relationship, so if it goes as I like this question won't apply to me.
