Cheaters, Broken-Hearted Twi-hards, and Questions: Would You Take Back a Cheater?
|July 30, 2012||Posted by glori under Life, News, Relationships|
We mere mortals have been rocked with the headlines.
The recent news about Kristen Stewart’s infidelity to Robert Pattinson has crushed the hearts of Twi-hards worldwide. Rupert Sanders, the director of Kristen’s recent mainstream movie, “Snow White and the Huntsman,” is the other man.
Although many fans screamed “photoshop” when the first pictures surfaced, their bubbles popped when the actress apologized and admitted the sin first on People magazine:
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
This was followed by Sanders own apology as reported by Reuters:
“I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”
But I guess all these apologies came too little to late, as Rob Pattinson was reported seen leaving the mansion he and Kirsten Stewart share. And now Perez Hilton reports that Stewart left the building too!
Whew! Talk about drama!
But seriously, questions need to be answered. And no, I’m not going to get all investigative and ask about what the hell was Kristen Stewart thinking messing around with a married man, although that is a very good question.
Since we are not immortal vampires and rich Hollywood directors with hot wives (that we would idiotically cheat on), let’s ask questions that concern us mere mortals.
Would you take back a cheater?
Some of you may have been the victim of infidelity in the past. The pain of being betrayed by someone you love can be unbearable. So if the cheater in question comes running back to you asking for forgiveness and a second chance… would you give in?
Here are a few things you should consider.
Has he or she done it before?
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, and thrice, and whatever it is you call four, five, and six times, screw you.
Whether you’re a guy like Rob Patz or a non-celeb, you deserve better than a cheating scumbag who is a repeat offender. However, if it is a first-time offense (and you truly believe that is it), you may give consideration.
Trivia: Did you know that some fans believe KStew cheated on her then-boyfriend Michael Angarano (of the movie Sky High) with Rob Patz? Hmmm… Just saying…
Honesty counts, even after the fact.
If you found out about the indiscretion through other people other than the cheater, and then he or she says sorry, think twice before taking him or her back. You see some people aren’t sorry that they hurt you; they are just sorry they got caught.
Can you see yourself trusting the person again?
This is a tough one. Trust is difficult to get back in these cases. No amount of promises from the cheater can really assuage your fears of having infidelity occur again. Ask yourself if you can forgive truly and completely. Maybe you can, but we all know forgetting is a whole new game.
So can you take back a cheater?
