Cheaters need to heal too, right? Jeff assists a young gentleman who’s transgressions have left him remorseful and hopeless #SBMail
Here is the entire message:
I wanted to have some advice about cheating. You see, I have recently been caught by my ex girlfriend, and I feel so guilty. I have been using the time apart to reflect on my actions. I have come to realize that I cheated because a) I was bored and missed the excitement of chasing after women, b) I wanted a switch up in my sex life, c) my inner social circle is full of single men and cheaters; I probably wanted to feel more accepted by emulating them and d) it was a cheap way to deal with issues in my relationship. I have also come to realize that I am not ready to get back with her, as such, I need to leave her go. Had I been able to have the real talk with myself and my girlfriend, I could have prevented all this to happen. The problem is the following; how does an (ex)-cheater not only get over the guilt, but also the love ache because I never stopped loving her (even when I cheated). There is so much advice on helping the cheated move on, but so little on helping the cheater move on.

Yes, he really needs to reevaluate his life and the people he hangs around with. Birds of a feather….flock together.
Agreed 100%! Thank you for watching!!!
I dealt with a similar situation. I was the one cheated on and he is super remorseful to this day. He knows I was good to him. He claims to always know I was his ideal mate but he couldn’t let me go even though he wasn’t ready for what I wanted. I tell him to forgive himself, because I have moved past it. I’ve come to realize he wants me to see him and look at him the way I did prior to his cheating. Unfortunately, that will never happen.
And that’s the reality of the situation. You have to live with those decisions. Thank you for watching!!!
