Yes, I know this response seems self explanatory but let's actually think this through...
Once a cheater always a cheater, we get it, we all make mistakes right?
I'm going to single out the men or "boys" right now. From experience, I've noticed that there are different types of cheaters.
There are men who cheat and always cheat again.
There are men who cheat and consider it "not cheating."
Then there's men who slipped up and cheated, but you know they won't do it again. (Like Derwin on The Game!)
When considering if you should date a cheater or not you should ask these questions.
What did you do?
Why did you do it?
Did you tell your significant other?
Responses I've heard are "I was young and made a mistake," "My girl was too busy," "I didn't want to hurt my current girlfriend by breaking up with her so I just explored other women while being in a relationship." (i.e.: having your cake and eating it too) "She tempted me and made me do it."
So based off of those responses, if a man blames the woman for their actions, THEY ARE NOT THE ONE. I'll write this again. If a man blames another human being for THEIR actions do not date them.
A man or woman takes responsibility for their mistakes or actions and grows from them. Cheating can be forgiven if the man or woman acknowledges it by stating that it was their own fault and actually take responsibility for it.
History repeats itself and it will happen again if you do not approach this the right way. Get all the information you need and make a rational decision based on how they respond. It's never good to judge someone based on their past, so knowing how they presently respond or defend their past actions shows true character.
