    A long time ago I cheated on a girl. I had no regard for her feelings and I know that she was totally devastated. I want to tell her that I am sorry for the wrong that I caused her but it being 5 years ago is that too long ago and a bit weird?

    It depends, if you don't talk to her or ever see her then it may be slightly odd. If you did really hurt her, chances are she won't want your apology even if it was ages ago.
    It's great that you feel bad for it now, I would just focus on making your next relationship good.

    Do you speak to her at all? I'm assuming you don't. If you don't speak to her and you are genuinely sorry for what you did then I can't see a problem with apologising as long as it's sincere and you make it clear you are not trying to get anything off her (i.e. getting back together). Who cares if she thinks it's odd or weird (she probably will after that amount of time tbh)? You don't have to speak to her again. With it being 5 years I doubt she is still devastated now.

    That's my take on it anyway.
