You’ve trusted that lovin’ person, and the relationship was going great. That is, until someone told you the faithful partner has been cheatin’on you. What do you do about it?
1. First choice could be to ignore it, assuming it is a rumor spread by some jealous and frustrated back stabber. In other words, give your lover one chance. If it happens again, then you can kick the cheatin’ heart out of your life.
2. Walk away from the cheater. Don’t waste another minute of your time with the cheatin’ heart. There are plenty of others out there who’ll appreciate you, and once you’re connected again, you’ll soon forget the name of that whatchamacallit ex-lover.
3. Do some cheatin’ of your own. Unless you’re hog-tied together in a marriage or long-term commitment, you’re free to end it or suspend operations temporarily at any time, no matter what the reason. And, if you’ll just take a peek around that nearby street corner, there’s someone else out there who’ll respect and appreciate you.
4. Depending on the severity of the cheatin’ and how angry you are, do something about the cheater. Your response can be as mild as choosing a public place and loudly tell the cheater off. It can be even more effective if there are friends or family nearby, just to make the ex-lover look about one foot tall.
Of course, there are stronger ways to punish the cheatin’ heart, such as slashed car tires, molasses in the gas tank and a closet full of ripped-up clothing. On second thought, just getting your freedom is revenge enough.
